This hotel serves up some stellar sea views – you'll even be able to catch a glimpse of the islands of Lobos and Fuerteventura.
The Rio Playa Blanca lifted the lid on a fresh new look in November 2018 – and this goes for the rooms, as well. It's scooped up a top-notch location. It's right by the sea, just 10 minutes' walk from a golden-sand sweep, Playa Flamingo. Plus, the town's main strip's a 15-minute stroll away, where you'll find a bunch of bars and restaurants.
The hotel's made up of lots of little chalk-white bungalows – they're dotted around the grounds, along with plenty of palm trees.
This hotel is a Holiday Village Lanzarote between May and October. Between November and April it's called RIO Playa Blanca.
