OVERVIEW

At 17 storeys tall, this is Lanzarote's highest hotel. This five-star establishment in the heart of the island's capital has welcomed the great and the good following a mid-1960s opening. It has been refurbished since then with new owners rising this phoenix from the flames of a devastating fire.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Overlooking the picture-perfect Blue Flag El Reducto beach, the Arrecife Gran Hotel & Spa enjoys a central position in the Lanzarote capital, and is just six minutes' drive in a hire car from the airport. The flash Marina Lanzarote shopping centre is nearby, along with the more established Escuela de Pesca Lanzarote fishing school and the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo (MIAC), an art museum housed in an 18th-century fort with a stylish restaurant.

By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Lanzarote take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a five-minute drive from Lanzarote airport. Private parking is €10 per day. Book flights to Lanzarote.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The design is daring as it is the opposite of the island's traditional low-level architecture. Stylistically, it's modern with nods to Lanzarote's cultures and traditions. The ambience is laid back with the open layout of the reception meaning that staff come to where new guests are sitting to check them in.

THE FACILITIES

Service is formal, which is a reflection of the elegance of the clientele. The pool is a relaxed chillout zone with or without a DJ in residence. A romantic getaway package includes cava, suite accommodation, a pair spa circuit, and one dinner for two.
