As beachfront hotels go, VIK Hotel San Antonio Lanzarote is a cracking choice. Walk from the hotel right onto the sands of Playa de Los Pocillos, or enjoy the choice of two outdoor pools complete with sun loungers and parasols. These beautiful pools are the perfect way to cool off from the Canary Island's scorching summer sunshine. Or if you're travelling during winter, the pools are heated to provide a lovey ambient temperature. Add to the luxury factor with a trip to the hotel's health and wellness centre, complete with sauna, massage treatments and Turkish bath, or work off last night's Spanish fiesta with a hearty session on the tennis courts.
For the little ones, VIK Hotel San Antonio has its own children's club that's open during the peak summer months and at Christmas. It's open from Easter through to October and features swimming pool entertainment with instructors, mini disco, games, crafts and more. Kids can enjoy their own paddling pool and on-site playground, while mum and dad will find their stay easier thanks to child-friendly essentials such as family rooms, high chairs, cots, and oodles of local entertainment.
Take a stroll along the pedestrian promenade to enjoy all the fun and fanfare of Puerto del Carmen. Here you'll find stacks of things to see and do thanks to its abundance of bars, clubs and restaurants, not to mention its beautiful sandy beaches. Make your way to Playa Chica in the old town, a quiet spot where you'll find a harbour and a diving centre with great places to snorkel.
You can even walk along the pedestrian promenade all the way from Puerto del Carmen to the Lanzarote capital of Arrecife. Or for somewhere a little closer, walk to Los Pocillos, a quiet resort near the hotel that's great for families.
In addition to restaurants and a lovely sandy beach, a 10-minute drive from the hotel brings you to one of Lanzarote's top attractions, the Rancho Texas Park. From Wild West days and watery fun to horse rides and an animal sanctuary, it's guaranteed to keep the whole family entertained.
