Why Puerto del Carmen is the ideal place to stay when visiting Lanzarote

Spread the love

Lanzarote has always been a firm favourite with people craving their two weeks in the sun, but it’s hard to know where to stay when you haven’t been before. Where can you get the most for your money? And what are the best options for families?


In today’s post, we’ll give you just a few reasons why Puerto del Carmen should be your first port of call for accommodation, and point you in the right direction of some of the area’s top hotels.


Perfect for all budgets

If your money is tight, you’ll find the ideal apartment waiting for you on the Los Pueblos complex. Located in the quaint old town of Puerto del Carmen, these charming apartments are just 500m from the town centre; for self-catering, you’ll have some of the freshest ingredients on your doorstep courtesy of the local markets, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants when you want a night off from cooking.


Each room has its own balcony or terrace to sit on of an evening and watch the sun go down, and the complex itself has a swimming pool, children’s pool, tennis courts, pool tables, a restaurant, a cafe and a bar – not to mention the fact that it’s a stone’s throw from Puerto Del Carmen’s golden sandy beach and harbor. Priced from just £149 per person for self-catering, it’s ideal for a budget-break in the sun.


Great for families

Puerto del Carmen is ideal for people who have kids in need of entertainment. The area is bursting with activities, from horse-riding, golf courses and boat trips, to water parks, Lanzarote safaris and even the chance to go on a walk underwater! Why not let the kids experience their first scuba-diving lesson, or take them on a tour of the volcanoes at Timanfaya National Park?



This area definitely has something for everyone, and for those groups who need somewhere a little bigger to stay, look no further than Beatriz Playa & Spa Hotel. With comfortable and spacious rooms from £329 per person on a half-board basis, private balconies with sea and gardens views, and spa services at your beck and call, it’s ideal for people who want to stay close to the action with their friends and family.


Add a little luxury

However, if you want to add a touch more extravagance to your stay, why not opt for an all-inclusive option at the grand Seaside Los Jameos Playa hotel, with rooms from £529? This has been dubbed an “oasis” by locals, and seen as it’s located on Playa de los Pocillos beach, and less than 2km from the heart of Puerto Del Carmen, you’ll get a little more peace and quiet during your stay. Surrounded by groves of palm trees, you’ll be able to eat your breakfast, lunch and dinner in the serenity of its gardens, before sitting back to watch one of their regular stage shows.
