My wife and I stayed for a week at Easter and were impressed by this top quality hotel and would rate it clearly as number one in Arrecife. It is an imposing 17 storey towerblock on the beach front and the hotel is stylish with an impressive reception area. Staff were courteous and efficient throughout our stay.
We did not have a sea-view but were more than satisfied with the size of our room, with flat screen TV and a spacious, modern bathroom.
The restaurant on the top floor has a superb view over the bay and city and the food was top quality. Staff were also attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
We were staying half board but there was only one menu for the full week.
The pool area was super and the glass roof meant you could relax without any stiff breeze. There was an outside sun bathing area also. We didn't try the exclusive looking Spa area as a daily fee was charged and treatments looked expensive.
Breakfast was a fabulous hot and cold buffet in the ground floor sea-view room.
The selection was one of the best I have ever seen although the hot food was cool on a couple of occasions.
Across the street are local bars and restaurants although as Arrecife is not a 'tourist resort' they have an authentic spannish ambience.
We also hired a car during out trip and were able to use the underground carpark under the hotel which was handy.
Overall, for Easter week, we were surprised how quiet the hotel was. Seemed to be much less than half full. This did mean there was little atmosphere in the restaurant and bar but an advantage was the pool area was always quiet for relaxing.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in Lanzarote away from the beach resorts such as Puerto del Carmen, then the Gran Hotel would be prefect if you can get a good deal.
