Family holiday in Lanzarote
Posted on 7th October 2016 at 16:17
Last year was a great summer and I had an amazing family holiday in Lanzarote
We stayed at the Aequora Lanzarote Suites in Puerto del Carmen which was one of the best family hotels I have stayed at. We had a 2 bedroom suite which was very spacious and perfect for our family of 5. There were lots of activities throughout the day, although the children spent most of the time in the 2 kids pools. The larger one had a playground in the middle with slides, water cannons and a big barrel that filled and then splashed the children periodically, yet it was fairly shallow so we could enjoy the sunbed whilst watching them have fun. The other pool had smaller slides and was designed for toddlers. The hotel also had a playground and a Health Spa offering a range of treatments but I didn't get a chance to indulge.
The beach was a 5 min walk and there were lots of shops, bars and cafes nearby. We hired a car for a few days so we could explore the beautiful island and we found lovely beaches, parks and other resorts.We spent a day at Rancho Texas, an Animal park with bird & sea lion shows, cowboy lasso displays, Gold Mine, pony rides & a splash zone. It was 10 mins away and a great day out!
The All Inclusive restaurants had a large and varied buffet each night and there was even a mini buffet for the children at a low level where they could help themselves which was a nice touch. The evening entertainment was amazing, they even had a production of the Lion King musical.
There was a great atmosphere at the hotel, the staff and the guests were very happy and friendly and we had a wonderful 2 weeks. I would highly recommend Aequora Lanzarote Suites for a family holiday. Being in the canaries, Lanzarote is a great place for winter sun and ideal for the October half term!
