We are familiar with Lanzarote being an excellent destination for a cheap family holiday or a boozy mates break, but did you know that Lanzarote has another side?
Lanzarote is home to a superb selection of Adult Only hotels. This growing trend continues to grow its early inceptions in the 1970s when “honeymoon” hotels were first introduced onto the market.
During the last decade, this form of holidaying has exploded as couples look for quality time together without distractions from their or other people’s offspring.

Key Advantages of Adult-Only Hotels
“Adults Only” generally means these hotels do not allow anyone under the age of 18, or in some cases, 16. But if you are a single traveller, you can still enjoy an Adult-Only holiday as they are not specifically for couples. It can be a great way to meet new friends.
Adults hotels often offer different characteristics; some are designed to be livelier, and others more serene, romantic and relaxing. The choice is yours.
These hotels are at the premier end of the scale and tend to have prime locations. They are often elevated to take advantage of stunning views, and many have access to private beaches.
Holidaying with people who have made similar choices regarding their downtime makes for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Whether making friends “bar hopping” or enjoying an activity with new faces, it enhances your holiday experience knowing they chose the destination for the same reasons as you.
What Do They Offer?
As the guests are all adults, the activities are designed for the maximum pleasure of this age group. Often there are options for relaxation as well as sports. Tennis is widespread, and if in a coastal resort, water sports.
Entertainment provided by the hotels is top quality; their guests demand it that way. No kids entertainers, just quality acts such as live bands, singers, magicians and comedians. All are tailored to you and your enjoyment.
The restaurants in these Adult Only hotels are spectacular. With top international chefs, you will experience gastronomic delight wherever you stay. The menus will use fresh local ingredients, not a chicken nugget to be seen!
One key attraction to these hotels and resorts is the Adults’ desire to disconnect from the outside world and re-connect with their partners in a tranquil setting. This is why spa and relaxation treatments are offered at this type of accommodation.
With no destructive “rugrats” to house, these hotels and resorts can provide ultra-high quality fixtures and fittings throughout the hotel. There are options of minimalistic whites, stunning hardwoods, amazing pools with incredible tropical landscaping and not a bright yellow slide in sight.
Guests of Adult hotels are looking to be pampered. They expect excellent service and can go as far as private butlers and even personal chefs. The limits are only set by you.
