Families can have a truly wonderful time at the IBEROSTAR Lanzarote Park which was awarded Tripadvisor’s prestigious Certificate of Excellence in 2018 for fourth best all-inclusive hotel in Spain:

Kids facilities and kids clubs:

The hotel offers facilities and activities for all ages, from 0 to 17: The mini club for 4 to 7 year olds has lovely brand new facilities and offers supervised activities indoors and at the pool. The maxi club for 8 to 12 years olds and the teenage club meet in the club room and have their own activity programmes including darts, archery, beach volleyball, boule, water park and more. The club room is equipped with computers, TV, sofas, video games and table football. There is also a playground, pool table and table tennis in the grounds of the hotel.

The Beach and water sports:

Playa Flamingo offers a safe cove ideal for family swimming with its calm waters and gentle surf. Water sports are available on Dorada Beach and include, amongst others, kayaking, windsurfing, diving and catamaran sailing. You can also book Segways and scooters boat trips, rent a bike or a quad bike or enjoy a banana boat ride and other fun activities in Playa Blanca.

Excursions:

Lanzarote has much to offer and we will organize some fun activities and excursions for our group. Lanzarote is famous for the Papagayo Beaches, a series of secluded beaches known for their outstanding natural beauty and the Timanfaya National Park with its volcanic lunar landscape and impressive fire mountains. You can go on a camel ride here and continue your journey to the fishing village of El Golfo and admire the stunning views across the green lagoon. You could also take the ferry across to Fuerteventura for the day, visit the stunning cactus garden or take a submarine safari, a truly unique experience. Last but not least, the waterpark Aqualava is only minutes away from the hotel.

In the evenings, our single parents can dine together in the hotel’s excellent buffet restaurant, enjoy a drink at one of the bars at the hotel, and relax watching live music, shows, acrobatics and more. There are many shops, cafés and restaurants close by, and, if you stroll a little further along the promenade past the harbour, you will reach a pedestrian zone with more shops and the sandy beach of Playa Blanca with more cafés and restaurants along the seafront.

Lanzarote and Playa Blanca:

Lanzarote is the most easterly of the Canary Islands, situated just 79 km off the coast of Africa. The island’s volcanic origin means Lanzarote boasts unique geographical features including the longest volcanic tunnel in the world, the Atlantida Tunnel. Beautiful beaches, a host of things to do and a dry climate with an average daily temperature of 26°C and 10 hours of sunshine make Lanzarote a popular holiday destination for families in August.

Our hotel is located in the family resort of Playa Blanca at the seafront of Flamingo beach, and within walking distance of the resort centre and the “white beach” of Playa Blanca, from which the town takes its name. The beaches in Playa Blanca have a European Blue Flag for cleanliness, and there are bars, cafes, restaurants and shops dotted along the seafront. The resort is at the southernmost tip of the island, flanked by the Femes Mountains on one side and the Montana Roja on the other. Its location means the town is sheltered from higher winds, and enjoys the most pleasant temperatures on the island. The view across to Fuerteventura is breathtaking.

Lanzarote is also home to the famous Papagayo Beaches – a series of secluded beaches known for their outstanding natural beauty, which are now a nature reserve and can be accessed via a bumpy road or water taxi from Playa Blanca harbour. Other sites worth visiting include Timanfaya National Park with its volcanic lunar landscape and impressive fire mountains, and the former capital Teguise with its bustling market every Sunday. You can also go on a submarine safari which is a unique  experience for all ages.

"We had another wonderful SPOH holiday this year. Its just so lovely to have other parents around to keep you sane, and make you laugh as you share stories of bringing up your children (amongst other things!)... and to see the children become friends and play together."
- Emily, Harrison (9) & Brodie (5) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2019

"We enjoyed a fantastic week in the sun at this luxury resort with a fun and friendly group. Was so lovely for Alice to have a group of friends to play with and I really enjoyed the adult company. Would thoroughly recommend SPOH and if you haven’t experienced a holiday with them, book one now as you won’t be disappointed!"
- Debbie & Alice (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2019

"A great 5 star hotel with a beach very close by. Kids had a ball with kids close in age and I managed to relax but would recommend the 10 day break as 7 days wasn’t quite enough!"
- Fran, Romy (10) & Lana (10) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2019

"This was a fantastic holiday with both adults and kids alike forming really great friendships. The hotel is ran so smoothly with very enthusiastic entertainment staff who have a fantastic entertainment timetable without being tacky or over the top. I would definitely recommend this holiday and I would definitely go again!"
- Liz & Henry (7) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"This was our first Single Parents on Holiday and we both had a fantastic time. The hotel was excellent quality and our representative, Andrea, did an amazing job of making sure that everything worked smoothly and everyone could relax and enjoy themselves. There were 9 families, which meant the group was small enough for adults and children to socialise easily and enjoy their holiday together, but without any pressure. Thanks again to Andrea and we are looking forward to the next one!"
- Roy & Evelyn (8) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"Andrea was amazing she did a fantastic job and pitched to the group the activities with no pressure to join in and kept us well updated of activities in the hotel if we were not out on excursions. You were awesome! Jack my 6 year old wanted to stay for a year and Imogen my 11 year old said "best holiday ever" Thank you for making it so special!"
- Stuart, Imogen (11) and Jack (6) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"My daughters and I had an unforgettable holiday in Lanzarote, with the opportunity to see many unique things like the vulcano and to enjoy the beautiful hotel where we were accomodated. At the restaurant of the hotel the food is delicious and the staff is very helpful: even in cases of allergies or intolerances, like in my case, they are still able to offer you delicious and safe food. Andrea was a perfect host and did all her best to make us happy and enjoying our holiday, at the point that the only issue was that the holiday was over too early!"
- Claudia, Marie Rose (16) and Cristelle (14) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"Stan and I had such a great week in Lanzarote, from the warmth of the host (Jane) to the standard of the hotel (amazing!). We couldn't have wished for anything better. Stan made loads of friends and was constantly busy having fun, I didn't have to think about cooking or cleaning for a week (yes!) and could relax with my book by the pool, and then in the evening the group came together for dinner, disco and drinks. I'd recommend it to any single parent, it's so much fun and super friendly. If in doubt just book, you won't regret it! "
- Debs & Stan (6) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, May 2018

"It was great fun and we made lots of new friends. The pool was really fun, loved the slides. Food was yummy, especially the chocolate fountain."
- Clare & Alice (6) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, May 2018

"We had a lovely week away. We meet some great people and had lots of fun."
- Cheryl & Charlie (8) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, May 2018

"The boys quickly made friends at the hotel. It felt secure. The pools were small enough to keep an eye on them although they are reasonable swimmers. Didn’t feel overly crowded although half term. Entertainment in the evenings .... more for the kids though. I generally avoid anyway!"
- Ronnie, Tyrone (10) & Marcus (7) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, May 2018

"Edward and I had a wonderful time on this holiday in Lanzarote – we didn’t want to come home! We were very well looked after by Andrea who was so sweet and friendly and organized everything really efficiently. The people we met were lovely and we enjoyed great times by the pool and in the bar in the evenings. Edward really enjoyed the company of the other children too. We also enjoyed some great excursions, including the National Park with camel ride, fire mountain and crater tour, Rancho Texas, a banana boat ride on the beach and a visit to the local market to buy our souvenirs. The hotel was a great choice of accommodation, comfortable, friendly and a fantastic choice of wonderful food. We do hope to go on another holiday with Single Parents on Holiday soon as we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Lanzarote. Thank you SPOH for a great time."
- Janice & Edward (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"My 12 year old daughter told me this was her best holiday ever. If you have any doubts about booking a single parents holiday (as I did), banish them immediately! A fantastic idea, and a great company to book it through."
- Neil & Ella (12) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"This was our first ‘single parents holiday’ and it exceeded our expectations. The hotel was incredibly clean and the quality and variety of food in the restaurant was outstanding. The aim was for my son to meet and play with similar aged children and for me to have some adult company. Although we were a very small group (just 5 families) these aims were achieved. Our host Andrea provided an impeccable service often going over and above the call of duty. I’m disappointed to see that you are not offering the same holiday next year."
- Hannah & Max (8) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"I asked my daughter how she would describe our holiday in Lanzarote and she said ‘fabulous’. I totally agree. Sandra is a wonderful host and, alongside the super clean and comfortable hotel, the all-inclusive deal with great food and drinks, the lovely swimming pools and, of course, the good company of other families, this proved to be a really great holiday. We loved our camel ride, the trip to Rancho Texas zoo, the beach with pedalos and banana boats, walking along the seafront to the marina, visiting Teguise market and cruising in the glass bottomed boat – all great fun. Many thanks once again."
- Beccy & Lily (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"Thanks you once again for a fab holiday in Lanzarote. Me and Emily had a lovely time. Great hotel, food and a wonderful host, too! I would recommend this firm to everyone, the company is super in every way. Thank you…."
- Mark & Emily (12) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"This was my first Single Parents on Holiday and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The quality of the hotel, food and location was excellent (proved by Theo going back several times at each meal!). Theo learnt to scuba dive and loved the camel rides up the volcano. Best of all however was the way Sandra made everyone feel so welcome and like part of a small “family”. The holiday had the best of both worlds, it allowed me to have a special holiday time together with Theo and to also socialize in the evening with other parents and the children. A great holiday that is a “cut above” the rest of the competition in terms of quality and atmosphere. Congratulations Sandra and looking forward to the next one already!"
- David & Theo (12) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012
