Family holidays to Lanzarote in the winter

Lanzarote is a great choice for a holiday at any time of the year but  with a  convenient 4 hours flying time from the UK, diverse resorts, family friendly hotels plus a climate that rarely drops below 20 degrees centigrade Lanzarote has some compelling attractions for a winter family holiday destination.

The busiest resort on the island is Puerto del Carmen, during July and August the ‘strip’ and other parts of the resort are quite lively until the early hours of the morning but in winter a more sedate pace is to be found here.

My personal favourite is Playa Blanca, the beaches here are superb and as the resort is relatively new the standard of hotels are also quite modern and of a high quality. This resort is ideal for families at any time of the year and is a great choice for a Christmas or winter half term break.

We have selected two recommendations per star rating for a family holiday in Lanzarote, this was a much more daunting task than I first imagined with a whole host of hotels especially in the 4 star category that we could easily have chosen, however the two that do appear are outstanding.

Based on facilities, location, great feedback, re-bookings and general long term quality standards here are are family hotel recommendations for this winter…

Five star: The Princesa Yaiza Suite Resort & The Dream Hotel Gran Castillo

Four star: The H10 Rubicon Palace & The Seaside Hotel Los Jameos Playa 

Many others could have been included such as the Riu hotels, the H10 Lanzarote Princess, the Hesperia Playa Dorada and many many others.

Three Star : The Sands Beach Resort & The Iberostar Lanzarote Park

The 3 star category includes apartments and aparthotels and could easily have included the H10 Lanzarote Gardens and several other outstanding candidates.
