Gran Castillo Tagoro Family & Fun Playa Blanca
Gran Castillo Tagoro Family & Fun Playa Blanca is on the south-west coast of Lanzarote. It's a short walk from the beach and the promenade, which has views over to Fuerteventura on clear days. The promenade runs all the way to the centre of Playa Blanca, which is also a short drive away. The area is quiet and laid-back, and there are several bays and sheltered beaches to explore nearby, as well as a marina. The hotel has a pool area with 11 outdoor pools, including four separate kids' pools and a separate heated adults-only pool. There's also a sun terrace where you can soak in the rays, as well as a pool waiter service so you don't have to get up to get a drink. If you want to keep active, you can work out in the hotel gym, join in with an aerobics or aqua aerobics class, or have a kickabout on the multi-sports court. Afterwards, you could treat yourself to a session in the spa, which has a sauna and offers massage therapy. Alternatively, you can swim in one of the two heated indoor pools. The hotel has three bars and four restaurants to choose from. After dinner you can play a few rounds of darts or table tennis.
Gran Castillo Resort is 1km from the sands of Papagayo beach and 4km from the centre of Playa Blanca. In Playa Blanca, you'll find plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. You can pick one of the seafood restaurants on the promenade to try the local specialities, or sit in a cafe to watch the boats come and go in the harbour. If you're a keen golfer, the well-renowned Lanzarote Golf is a 29km drive from the hotel. Timanfaya Park is 15km away, and this national park is popular with visitors because of its volcanic landscape and guided demonstrations of its geothermal activity.
The hotel has three bars, including a pool bar that also serves snacks and is open until the early hours. There are four restaurants to choose from, with a buffet restaurant and three ala carte restaurants offering a choice of Asian, Italian and gourmet cuisine.
Gran Castillo Resort runs a kids' club, and in the pool area there's also a water park with three slides for kids to enjoy.
The rooms at Gran Castillo Resort have centrally controlled air conditioning and a balcony or terrace, as well as a minibar and a TV.

Lovely hotel. Friendly staff, buffet good quality and never a long wait for favourites to be restocked. Pools very nice, though it's worth knowing that the kids pool with the water slides is nowhere...
