teguise sleep in lanzarote

Dernière modification le

Lanzarote is a fantastic island that can be visited all year round thanks to its mild weather. It’s said to have eternal spring, never too hot, never too cold.

The other great thing about the island is that it’s small, so you can visit everything easily from just about anywhere. You don’t have to take a hotel in the north and then a hotel in the south, you can cross the island in no more than 1h30. Conveniently, all this means that you can make do with just one place to stay, and that means you can take something comfortable.

And that’s just as well, because Lanzarote’s hotel offer is very good. There’s plenty of accommodation, and because its urban planning is well controlled, you won’t have any big hotel complexes disfiguring the landscape.

In short, you’ll find everything from hotels to apartments and houses. Whether on the beach or close to the volcanoes, there’s something for everyone.

Where in Lanzarote should I stay?

It’s not easy! First of all, you need to know that there are 3 main tourist areas, where the vast majority of people go for the beaches, the activity, and also for the amount of accommodation available:

  • Costa Teguise, just north of Arrecife, renowned for its beaches and water sports activities
  • Playa Blanca, beautiful beaches close to those of Papagayo, ideal for relaxation at the southernmost tip of Lanzarote.
  • Puerto del Carmen, just south of Arrecife, is the island’s most popular tourist destination. Beautiful beaches and an ideal location near the volcanoes

In these 3 resorts, you’ll find absolutely everything. Hotels, pensions, all-inclusives, airbnb. These are busy little towns in high season, so you’ll find supermarkets, pharmacies, bars and restaurants. If you’re looking for something a little quieter, then you’ll find it in the center of the island, but no longer on the waterfront, mainly around the volcanoes and Timanfaya Park:

Finally, there’s the UFO El Golfo, a really nice place, far from everything, surrounded by volcanoes with superb scenery and right on the water’s edge, the perfect place to eat seafood and watch the sunset.

So these are two totally different choices. But the good thing is that it won’t affect your ability to visit the island’s beauty spots. It’s all within easy reach! And these towns are well connected by bus.

My 4 best hotels and apartments in Lanzarote!

Well this is a totally subjective choice, these are not the ones with the best reviews or the most comments. These are the ones that, in my opinion, combine: comfort + price + reviews + location.

Because if I want to highlight the best best best, then it’s Lani’s Suites de Luxe, which is exceptional, but at €450 a night I’m not sure it’s affordable for everyone.

So I’m going to suggest 4 top, relatively affordable accommodations just below.

Then I’ll suggest specific accommodations for each location, some inexpensive, others atypical.

Located at the southernmost tip of Lanzarote, bordered by numerous beaches and very close to the volcanoes, Playa Blanca has a magnificent setting, it must be said.

The best things to do in Lanzarote

I obviously talk a lot about this in the general article about Lanzarote, but here are the things I think are essential to see and do on this beautiful island. Of course, it’s all about volcanoes and boat trips:

And much more!

Practical information about Lanzarote

How far in advance to book accommodation

Lanzarote is a popular destination for school vacations all year round. Especially in summer, in fact.

Accommodation will almost always be available at the last minute, but it will be expensive, so I’d advise you to book several months in advance for summer vacations, and several weeks in advance for Easter and All Saints’ Day.

Out of season, you can book 2 weeks in advance, for example, which isn’t too much of a problem, as there will always be good accommodation available.

When is the best season to come to Lanzarote?

They say Lanzarote has eternal spring. Never too hot, never too cold. Even in winter it’s warm and sunny. In summer it’s not too hot, and the wind helps to keep the heat down.

So really, you can go there any time! In summer it’s great, but it’s quite busy, so April/May/June and September/October are great times too.

So there’s no bad period. In winter, it’ll be a bit cool in the evenings, but not really cold. During the day, it’s fine. I was there in january, and honestly, the weather was good


And that’s it! It’s obviously impossible to show you all the accommodation on Lanzarote, and that wasn’t the point.

I wanted to be able to point you in the right direction, tell you about the advantages of each place and give you a shortlist of nice, affordable or top-of-the-range accommodation.

Accommodation prices in Lanzarote are rising, but it’s still quite affordable. There’s something for every budget, but also for backpackers or families, those who want the volcanoes or the beach. Just try to get in early! There will always be accommodation available, but the best obviously go first
