Best for Families - Expert review of Princesa Yaiza

Best all round hotel in Lanzarote, with romance, golf, kids' facilities and spa.

I would stick my neck out and say this is one of the island’s most attractive hotels. The three-storey building is built around a large pool overlooking the ocean, and palm trees dot the public areas. I love the thoughtful design in elegant local style, and all those lovely spaces to relax.

Location: 

The hotel is close to the beach in the resort of Playa Blanca, and just a short walk from the marina.

Bedrooms: 

The hotel offers a good variety of rooms, including suites and family suites (particularly good value), most of which are spacious, and some boast balconies. Rooms have high quality furnishings throughout in tasteful neutral shades with solid wood furniture and suites have kitchen facilities.

Public areas: 

A distinctive wooden pagoda leads to a large, atrium-style reception area that is cool and restful. The tropical gardens and pleasing public spaces are some of the hotel’s best features.

Eating and drinking: 

This hotel has eight restaurants, no less, although they are not all open all the time and some of them tend to get sabotaged by children in peak season. Drinkers can enjoy a juice at the bar by the pool, or a cocktail in the pleasant enough lobby bar.

Leisure facilities: 

There are both saltwater and freshwater pools here, as well as a pool for children and a spa. If activities are your thing, the list of daytime sports facilities is long and includes: modern gym, multi-sports court and beach volleyball court. Kids are spoilt for choice with the Kikoland playground, dedicated pools and play area as well as ‘clubs’ catering for all ages from tots to teenagers. If all that were not enough, there is even themed entertainment, and football classes for children. The jazz bar, ‘entertainment plaza’ and disco provide a variety of fun for adults, if not necessarily sophisticated options for those who don’t want to leave the hotel during the evening. Oh, and business types might want to know that there is a large convention centre as well as equipped meeting rooms.
 

Service: 

I like being presented with a glass of bubbly on arrival – in fact, I think all hotels should do this, so the Princesa Yaiza certainly gets my vote for this little touch. Reception and bar staff were very good to me, although waiting service can be a bit slow in restaurants, I found.

Who stays there: 

Those without children may find the family contingent a little overwhelming at times, but there are plenty of other kinds of guests, from couples and golfers to business people.
 

Price advice: 

This is a justifiably popular hotels with families, so look to travel outside of school holidays to get the best deals. 

Pros: 
Relaxed and luxurious with superb service
Good location, short walk to bars, restaurants, shops and marina
Spotlessly clean
Cons: 
The pool area can get very crowded in peak season
Poor noise insulation can affect some of the rooms
