Good hotel, comfortable rooms, plenty of space, plenty of sunbeds..... and marvellous food, amazing quality and choice.. Stayed for a fortnight, enjoyed the place, the promenade, and the headland which takes you over towards the beaches. Hasn't got a sand beach, all stones,

Have nothing bad to say about this hotel at all. It is challenging though to find everything as there are so many floors & things to find. This means it's difficult to get bored. We did not upgrade to the Royal Elite & don't feel we have missed out. The entertainment team work

This was our first trip to Lanzarote and this hotel group. In short, we loved it. Check in was straight forward and you make your own way to your room. Others have said they did not like this due to the size of the hotel. However, we viewed the orientation (getting lost) as part

We had a week away in February and the hotel was magnificent and the staff very friendly, including an English speaking waiter who could quote Wilfred Owen! The food was fresh and wholesome and plentiful, with enough variety from day-to-day. The only comments I would have are

There are, however not sure how diet or sugar free they are, everything tastes quite sweet. There is a supermarket at the bottom of the hill which has a great selection to bring back though if all else fails.

I have been several times and either book with travel agent or direct with hotel I have used jet2 for this years stay and the option is in the booking process when you select room type if royal elite isn’t showing as an option it’s probably sold out try another date and you will see the options

Having been to this resort at least five times over the festive season we think they get it right and put much effort into everything. Having said that, the reason we go at Xmas and New Year is to get away from the lunacy that happens in the UK... The elite adults room does not have a view but it is private and does not have screaming kids. If you want views you can get your drinks in the elite bar and walk outside to the Canary Terrace or use the elite family facility which has the best view from anywhere in the hotel. The terrace from this bar is spacious and very pleasant - strangely, little used by kids who are usually inside glued to the tablets etc. The elite adults is undergoing major investment in 2019 and when Sandos do things they don't stint so who knows? Hope this helps.
