With glorious sandy beaches and perennial sunshine, it’s not hard to see why Lanzarote is such a popular tourist resort, but with so many hotels on offer choosing your accommodation can be a challenge.
Unlike many other holiday resorts, Lanzarote has strict building regulations which mean that almost all hotels are low-rise and for the most part, tasteful. Most accommodation on offer is self-catering and you’ll find a good mix of budget-friendly bungalows to luxurious villas on the coast and further inland. The main resorts include Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise and Playa Blanca, but for those looking to enjoy a less touristy experience the north of the island is perfect.
Whether you’re out to splash your cash or counting every last penny, discover the best hotels in Lanzarote and find the perfect accommodation to suit your budget and taste with our handy guide.
