If there's one place that can provide an excellent choice of holiday accommodation with prices to suit pockets both big and small, Lanzarote is it. Whether you're after five-star luxury or something a little more cheap and cheerful, Lanzarote hotels are happy to oblige. Many of the most popular hotels are found around the coast in resorts such as Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Tequise, which cater to Western tastes and provide English-speaking hosts in pretty much everything from the hotels and restaurants to the local corner shops.
If you're looking for something a little off the beaten track, you'll find plenty of choice through local agents such as Canarias. Try the likes of Yaiza, the mountainous Famara with its fishing and farming traditions, the northern fishing village of Arrieta, or Orzola - the island's most northerly village.
Some of the best Lanzarote hotels can be found in the popular resorts of Costa Tequise and Playa Blanca. Here you'll be treated to luxury on-tap in the form of lavish spa hotels and first-rate service. If you're after something a little more convenient, Lanzarote flights use the Arrecife airport, so it may be worth staying in or near the city of Arrecife - the island's capital. It's a historic city dating back to the 15th century when it was a small fishing village and port, and it has plenty of sights on offer along with a large popular beach and numerous hotels.
Alternatively, the coastal resort of Puerto del Carmen is located just a few kilometres from the airport, offering low-cost transfers as well as plenty of excellent hotels, local activities, nightlife and great beaches.
When it comes to holidays in Lanzarote, no visit is complete without exploring the Timanfaya National Park. This magnificent space is alive with dramatic scenery and a kaleidoscope of colours. Vibrant red dunes blend into black volcanic sands and lava fields, peppered with jagged boulders and bizarre twisting rock formations - a lasting and fascinating legacy of the island's violent volcanic past.
Drive to the edge of the park and join one of the coaches that depart regularly, skillfully negotiating the hairpin bends and challenging terrain of the lunar-like landscape and treating passengers to magnificent - if not slightly terrifying - views from the slopes of Santa Catalina, Lanzarote's highest volcano.
Hotels in Lanzarote come in all shapes and sizes, from lavish spa resorts and golf hotels to quaint rural retreats and budget apartments. Choose a local agent such as Canarias to find accommodation right across the island - perfect if you're looking for a quiet spot tucked well away off the beaten track. Or, hunt for deals online via the many different travel agents and tour operators available.
Lanzarote is a popular holiday destination so once you've found your perfect spot, the majority of hotels can be booked online. Of course if you like to make things even easier for yourself, you'll also find plenty of package breaks here - meaning that your flights, accommodation and local transfers are all included in the cost.
