Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Sayed in the Barcelo next door and popped down more than once during my holiday. What a great place - a working marina with some very impressive yachts moored up. Plenty of places to eat serving everything from coffee and cake to full dinner service, little cobbled streets, bridges over the water with plenty of fish in the pools and interesting shops to pop in to. Also visited on market day and although a couple of stalls were selling the usual cheap watches / sunglasses / hats the majority had a good selection of local goods - purchased a very nice wallet from a lovely local lady. Great place and highly recommended when in Playa Blanca.

    Great walk up the old volcano, we had clear blue skies so the views were fantastic, Not as daunting as it looks we started at Relaxia waterpark walked up it, around the crater,anf back down to waterpark in under 2 hours, and that's stopping for photos and chatting to other people, Proper footwear and water recommend steeper at the bottom and some ground very slippy underfoot but a do not miss landmark

    A lovely, protected sandy beach, with good facilities, lifeguards, sun beds, toilets, showers, hire boats cafes, bars, and promenade. Big enough to have facilities, small enough to not be overpowering. Only downside for us is we came during spring equinox spring tides and at high water the beach became crowded as it halved in size!

    Very well hidden. Our 7 year old eventually found it and was so excited.
    Beautiful views in the surrounding area. Will definitely come back to this part of Lanzarote.

    this is lovely beach with calm, clear water protected from the larger waves, so it is perfect for families with young children. Unlike playa dorada at the other end of playa blanca it is not full of rentable sun loungers so there is a lot more room, especially at high tide. The only downsides were the constant smell of food from the restaurants that overlook the beach and the lack of public toilets.

    Beautiful stretch of coastline with a nice concrete path running along with superb views of the cliffs and waves crashing into them. Lots of benches to sit and enjoy the views as well

    This is a really fabulous thing to do while on holiday in Lanzarote. We went with the Rubicon Dive Centre which is right on the quayside. Even though we don't have any diving certification, we were able to do a "trial dive" for £130 each. This consists of a morning training session in water aout 5m deep then an afternoon trip to the museum which is a 10 minute boat ride away. After that were were able to enjoy the full experience which is roughly 45 minutes at a depth of down to 12 metres. Water temp was 21c and the wetsuit they gave us was perfect, not feeling at all cold.
    The museum itself is really incredible. every exhibit is thought-provoking and was clearly attractive to local sealife. We
    saw a decent variety of fish plus a playful octopus and a huge manta ray, which was exciting.
    Definitely do.

    It's a castle thing on a rock. But more worth it for the views of the sea crashing into the rocks. Also a nice walk along Paseo Maritimi to get there

    This place is off the beaten track and down a rock strewn road to an abandoned hotel which was never constructed but it’s definitely worth the visit if you can make it. Once you drive carefully you should make it fine and then you can descend to the rock pools which teem with crabs and other sea life. The power of the ocean is at display here but you can find sheltered pools even at high tide. As other reviews mentioned be sure to wear decent footwear climbing down but it’s nothing extreme.

    Large group of adults and children spent approximately 6 hours here .
    Not the biggest water park we have visited but clean and good fun enough to entertain for a day. Food in the cafe was overpriced and just about edible .

    Would highly recommend the Lanzarote Soccer School run by Gary and Scott.It was the highlight of my football mad sons holiday and he cant wait to go back and still talks about it! Gary and Scott are great with the kids and are very approachable and good humoured.If your children are interested in football you should definitely book them in without hesitation.
