Talk about location, location, location. The Hotel Villa VIK Canary Islands occupies a cracking spot which is both convenient and accessible, which makes getting around easy. But first, let's focus on the hotel's facilities.
It's home to a lovely freshwater pool surrounded by sunbathing platforms, loungers and parasols. The pool offers a wonderfully refreshing dip during Lanzarote's characteristically warm summers, and is heated during the cooler months. If that's not enough, there's also a heavenly Jacuzzi in the garden and of course the sandy beach is within a few minutes' walk.
Explore the local area with the hotel's free bicycle service, or ask your concierge to arrange a round or two at Costa Teguise Golf or Lanzarote Golf courses, both of which are just a short drive away.
Should you fancy exploring further afield, the Hotel Villa VIK occupies a fantastic base on the outskirts of Arrecife, placing guests within a stone's throw of the capital and the airport. From here, you can join an excursion to the magnificent Timanfaya National Park, home of the 'fire mountains' and a spectacular lunar-like landscape. Hire a car and visit Jameos del Agua on the north coast, where the late great architect Cesar Manrique worked his magic on underground caves and rock formations.
Arrecife itself is well worth a visit or two. Mooch around its superb boutiques, dine on fresh seafood and tasty tapas, or soak up the sights at its historic castles.
There's also a pedestrian pathway along the seafront that runs from Arrecife, past your door, and right along the coast to the popular resort of Puerto del Carmen. Here you'll find stacks of bars, restaurants, clubs and of course, lovely sandy beaches.
