OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

A ten-minute south-westerly drive along the LZ-40 from the island's airport, La Isla y El Mar is perched on the edge of Puerto del Carmen. It feels a little out of the way, but that's not necessarily bad. You can reach the resort's Playa Grande within ten minutes on foot. Germán Blanco riffs on traditional Lanzarote cuisine at nearby Arenas Lounge, with cannelloni stuffed with avocado, wreckfish, prawns and Greek yoghurt.

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