Hotel Hesperia Lanzarote
An exclusive and luxurious choice for vacationers who are looking for a high-rated 5-star resort on the island of Lanzarote, Hotel Hesperia is an adults-only oasis like no other. It can be found at the south-eastern coast of the island, in the town of Puerto Calero.
Hesperia Lanzarote is one of the highest ranking hotels in the Canary Islands that are exclusively for adults, especially during the peak summer months, and prides itself for being quiet and cozy, with an accessible location as it is near the town. It is an estimated 10km away from the Lanzarote airport, and many tourist hotspots can be found nearby, such as the Lanzarote Golf Resort, the Rancho Texas Park and the Montanas de Fuego Mountains.
Adult-only hotels are typically most popular for couples without children, as it allows them to enjoy their precious holiday time without the threat of screaming and running children by the pool. Hotel Hesperia Lanzarote is no different, with their main focus being on the quality of their guests stay, and the luxuries and star-treatment that they provide.
An abundance of dining options and tranquil activities truly help Hotel Hesperia redefine the term “5-star”, with views of the sea that resemble a postcard. Families have a chance of visiting this luxurious hotel until the start of the summer only, as Hotel Hesperia becomes strictly adults-only starting on May 1st, lasting throughout the whole summer, until the beginning of the off-season.
Hotel Hesperia has 334 large and spacious rooms to choose from, with each his own terrace, and most of them facing the sea. You have the choice of booking a suite with spa access for the ultimate holiday experience, while double rooms with sea view or more straightforward double rooms are available for smaller traveling parties.
Families who stay at Hotel Hesperia can book family rooms, which are outfitted with furniture for the younger travelers they might have in tow, such as bunk beds, and even telescopes. The rooms all have their own luxe bathrooms with bathtubs to unwind in after a long day spent in the sun. Rooms also come with cable TVs, with prime WiFi access for those who need to stay connected at all times.
There are many ways to stay entertained when staying at Hotel Hesperia Lanzarote. The four heated outdoor pools you can choose from, always guarantee that a dip is an ultimate pleasure, even in the colder months. On the grounds, you can find a free state of the art gym, and many indoor and outdoor sports facilities. These allow you to stay on top of your tennis game, practice paddling in the sea, or get involved in volleyball and squash games.
Other activities such as snorkeling, horseback riding, and cycling can be arranged by the concierge, but also bike rentals for those who prefer to explore the beaches and town on two wheels. Hotel Hesperia also prides itself in the world-class spa experience it offers. You can purchase an all-inclusive spa package while arranging your booking, which includes unlimited access to massages, a sauna, hot tubs, and steam rooms. Yoga classes are scheduled daily, while a solarium provides the right facilities to work on your tan indoors.
RESTAURANT / BAR
Every guest at Hotel Hesperia will have access to the extensive breakfast buffet, allowing you to customize your breakfast spread based on your preferences. A cook will whip up your specific style of eggs, while French pastries and authentic coffee will help set you up for a day of activities or relaxing in the sun. You may dine al fresco on the terrace, or stay indoors in the comfort of centralized air-conditioning and enjoy the many types of cuisines on the menu.
Authentic Italian cuisine can be enjoyed at the casual and family-friendly El Risco, while the more upscale La Caleta on the ground floor is perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Drinks and snacks can also be consumed outdoors and close to the pool, where cocktails and beers can be served up to those who have an appreciation for the tradition of happy hour while on a getaway holiday.
ACCESS TO BEACH
Even with four onsite pools, you may prefer to explore the beauty of nature by venturing out to the sea, while staying at Hotel Hesperia. Just a hop, skip and a jump away is Playa Dorada with its clear waters and the mesmerizing sound of the small waves crashing on the shore. It is a favorite among guests who want the best seat in the house while enjoying the setting sun on the horizon.
You will be able to observe sailboats crossing, completing that feeling of being at complete peace while on holiday. The sand on Playa Dorada is soft and a pleasure to take a stroll on, while sun loungers and umbrellas are also available for rent on the beach, if you prefer to take in the sun right by the sea. Kiosks and small shops line the promenade, allowing you to find something to snack on or to keep your thirst at bay.
