What's nearby? Gran Castillo is on the outskirts of Playa Blanca, neighbouring the resort’s sandy beach. It’s less than a five-minute drive – or a 15-minute walk – from the town centre, where you’ll find restaurants, bars and shops.
Tried and tested Little ones can join new friends for dinner at the Camelot Kids’ Club, which leaves parents free to enjoy a leisurely meal at Sanofe, an elegant adults-only restaurant overlooking the ocean.
The sleeping arrangements Rooms come in all shapes and sizes, and include Superior Double rooms, Suites and Family Duplex rooms with two floors. Interiors are done out in soft neutrals, and all feature spacious lounge areas perfect for larger parties. We love the Merlin Kids’ Room, in particular, which has a separate fairytale themed area for smaller guests, complete with toys, games and a PlayStation.
Near the beautiful and renowned Playa de Papagayo beach located in the protected natural park Los Ajaches.
Playa Blanca has a diving centre and lots of marine life in Lanzarote make it a great place for diving. Look out for angel sharks, butterfly rays, cuttlefish, moray eels, seahorses and more. The volcanic landscape is equally spectacular underwater with rock formations, anemones and soft corals. Puerto del Carmen is a particularly good place to dive from and the island is also home to a six-person decompression chamber.
25-minute drive to the Costa Teguise Golf Club, a smooth and varied course surrounded by the breathtaking volcanic landscape of the island. 18 holes. Par 72
