Families will feel at home in this large but comfy hotel that’s drenched in Canary Island sunshine. A choice of sizeable family rooms (with space for the little ones to run amok) provide a great base, but it’s in the range of facilities for children that the Occidental Lanzarote Mar really shines. There are separate children’s swimming pools (with slides, of course), indoor and outdoor play areas, plus kids’ activity clubs divided by age group.
But this hotel isn’t just geared towards younger guests, as its choice of sporting and wellness options prove. Anyone looking to integrate fitness into their holiday plans can take advantage of the hotel’s cycling centre, Olympic-sized swimming pool and well-equipped gym, plus a wellness area for rejuvenating rather than sweating.
If you want to combine your fitness kick with a little exploring, Lanzarote boasts lots of sporting opportunities alongside the sunbathing: golf, diving and windsurfing are all nearby, as are more extreme sports for adrenaline junkies.
Cafés, bars and restaurants are within walking distance, and for more choice, the heart of the Costa Teguise resort is about a kilometre away – great to visit if you can convince the kids to leave their newfound paradise for a few hours.
