Few places in the world can compete with the incredible beaches and stunning landscapes of Lanzarote. As the tallest building in the island’s capital, Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa is the perfect place from which to admire this natural beauty, with unparalleled views of the city, the sea and the gorgeous white-sand beach. Not to be outdone by its surroundings, the hotel is just as beautiful as the rest of the island, featuring teak-floored bedrooms and a spacious and opulent lobby.
Boasting a beachside address and a vast park just outside, this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner provides plenty of ways for you to fill your day. The distinctively designed swimming pool, with its stylish glass canopy, invites you to take a relaxing dip, while the Aquaplus Spa offers luxurious treatments to soothe your cares away. Dinner at Altamar Restaurant is a real special experience, where you’ll enjoy gourmet cuisine served over a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of the sea, city and surrounding landscape.
The spacious, 485-square-foot suites are full of natural light and feature panoramic views. Each is decorated in an elegant, modern style, with contemporary furnishings, a king-sized bed and an en-suite marble bathroom. The suite offers a separate living space, divided by a sliding wooden door, complete with comfortable armchairs for lounging and taking in that incredible vista.
Altamar Restaurant serves delicious á la carte Mediterranean cuisine, including some of the island’s best seafood, against a backdrop of stunning views. This refined eatery is perfect for a formal evening meal (no shorts for the men). Alternatively, Buffet Restaurant provides a more casual option, with Italian and Canarian buffets, themed evenings and show cooking. Pool&Bar is on hand for cocktails and light bites, like salads and cold cuts, while Star City, on the 17th floor, is your go-to spot for homemade Spanish cakes, coffee or something a little stronger.
Aquaplus Spa offers an extensive range of hydrotherapy facilities, with bithermal showers, a dynamic pool, a Jacuzzi, a foot bath, a sauna and a Turkish bath. Staff are on hand to help you select the ideal spa treatment from a range of Balinese and Ayurvedic treatments and massages, all using luxurious natural products.
Arrecife sits in the middle of Lanzarote’s east coast, conveniently placed for exploring some lovely beaches and the rest of the island. It boasts a magical and unique landscape, formed by centuries of turbulent tectonic activity. Notable highlights include the Timanfaya National Park – a surreal, Mars-esque volcanic landscape – and the Jameos del Agua, a naturally formed swimming pool in a collapsed lava tunnel. Lanzarote also boasts some of Europe’s best scuba-diving sites, as well as excellent snorkeling, surfing, windsurfing, parasailing and kayaking.
How to Get There
It is an amazing hotel with great location and restaurants in the building.
All staff members were very-very polite and helpful, no exception.
The hotel is built to stay inside, three restaurants, pool, spa, terrace and the beach is just 1 min away.
Special thanks to Liana at the reception for all her help!
The hotel was exceptional in every way. Staff very polite, friendly and professional. The rooms are large, clean, comfortable and the views amazing. Food is excellent. I couldn't fault it in any way and would recommend it to anyone. Location was excellent too. Can't wait to go ba k.
Rooms are amazing, only downside was that we had two singles pushed together which kept moving apart, would have preferred a king size bed. We stayed in the cheapest room so had a city view. Buffet breakfast was served on the first floor, lovely restaurant with nice views. We were half board but they informed us that because not many people were staying half board they were now serving evening meals in the restaurant on the top floor! Starter and desserts were a buffet but the main was from a menu where you had approx 5 options. The food was outstanding but there were a lot of fish options and as a non fish lover I did miss having the choice from a buffet for the mains. They had a an offer on €12 euro for a bottle of wine with dinner which we thought was a good deal. The views from the top floor were amazing. If you dont stay half board the bar on the top floor is worth a visit for drinks if you don't choose to use the restaurant. The indoor poor was nice and there were loungers to sit on a balcony outside if you wish to sunbathe. The immediate grounds of the hotel were a little run down but nothing too bad. The beach next to the hotel looked lovely but we tended to get the bus to puerto del carmen beach as there was more going on in the area. There are a few shops and restaurants near the hotel and a nice walk along the sea front. Buses are cheap and regular, if you download the moovit app it will tell you where all the bus stops are so you can explore the whole island. There are a few stops not far away from the hotel. Overall would definitely say its a 5* hotel!
