The facilities at the four-star Hipotels La Geria match its location. Puerto del Carmen is one of Lanzarote’s best-loved resorts; a beguiling mix of beach resort, water sports centre, and traditional Canaries town, all just a short drive from the island’s fascinating capital, Arrecife.
This large (242 rooms) hotel is fantastically placed for one of Puerto del Carmen’s three beaches. Los Pocillos beach is big and sandy, and a favourite with wind surfers.
Hipotels La Geria is the perfect place to return to after a day on the golden sands. The rooms are bright, light and modern, all with private balconies or patios.
Pretty gardens and an impressive pool are an attractive alternative to days on the beach. Tennis, table tennis, mini golf and other games around the hotel will help keep families happy.
And all this is available with all-inclusive deals to make predicting your expenditure much easier. The package includes all meals, served in buffet or restaurant style, including ice creams and cakes, and a bar from 10am to midnight.
Puerto del Carmen has grown from a traditional fishing village to a major holiday centre. The heart of the old town – complete with some good traditional restaurants – is still there alongside the lively modern nightlife scene. The Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park is a mix of zoo and marine park with lots of entertainment aimed at adults in the evenings.
Arrecife is around half an hour's drive away and is certainly worth a day or night out. Lanzarote’s capital has some interesting historic sites – a pair of Spanish castles – a trendy marina and a very good city beach.
Lanzarote’s famous volcanic scenery can also be explored from Puerto del Carmen. But it’s another natural attribute – the almost perfect climate – that is perhaps the island’s biggest plus, with all year round sunshine pretty much guaranteed. On- or off-season Hipotels La Geria offers the extras and service that make that real difference.
