The Los Fariones Hotel is one of the most popular 5 star hotels in Lanzarote

This long-established favourite of Irish holidaymakers has undergone a complete rebuild in the last two years. I stayed here many years ago but its new modern décor bears no resemblance to the traditional style it once held.

This revamped version of Los Fariones boasts a heated infinity pool and rooftop bar, yet you can still enjoy the activity of Puerto del Carmen next door. The nearby fishing port has a couple of Spanish fish restaurants, and hotel guests have access to the adjacent sports club and gym.
