All-inclusive hotels in Lanzarote: laid-back luxury in the Canaries

Lanzarote is famous for its black sand beaches, volcanic national parks and (most importantly) year-round sunshine.

Make your holiday even more hassle-free by staying in one of these all-inclusive hotels, from family-friendly resorts with splash pools to elegant hotels offering serene spas. And because all the little extras like drinks and food are included, there’s no need to worry about budgeting. Simply sit back and make the most of the weather as you treat yourself to a cool cocktail.

These hotels have been hand-picked for their extra-special features. We’re talking swanky pool bars with live music, private solariums with Balinese beds – and plenty to keep the little ones entertained.

Lanzarote all-inclusive hotel with lush tropical gardens

Soak up the spirit of the Canary Islands at Hotel Costa Calero, which overlooks the peaceful Puerto Calero marina and its luxury yachts. While the bustling town of Puerto del Carmen is just 3km away, the hotel’s tranquil tropical gardens – filled with 2.75 hectares of indigenous plants – will make you feel miles from anywhere. You’ll also find four outdoor pools overlooking the ocean, including one seawater pool.

The hotel’s restaurants celebrate Canarian specialities as well as international cuisine. La Magdalena Restaurant uses sumptuous dark wood and warm red walls to create a welcoming atmosphere. Help yourself at the buffet and eat al fresco on the sea-view terrace. After dinner, head for the Piano Bar and watch the sunset, with live music four nights a week.

Your room is a cosy haven, with warm tones and richly patterned upholstery. Choose between a view over the hotel’s colourful gardens or the beach; you’ll be able to see right across to Fuerteventura and Lobos islands. On honeymoon? Opt for a suite with corner Jacuzzi or hydro-massage bathtub. Double rooms with connecting doors keep everyone together when holidaying as a family.
