Below is a selection of holiday reviews from previous single parent group holidays in Lanzarote:
"When I first came across SPOH on the net, I instantly scrolled through the UK trips and past the trips abroad!
When I inquired on the phone, I spoke to Andrea who suggested Lanzarote as it would be more suited to young children. But I was qute wary even though this sounded very exciting! A short while after I found myself booking the Lanzarote trip for me and my 1 year old!!
I still can't quite believe I did it! And I am so thrilled I did, because it was the most amazing experience with my little one, we both met some lovely people and have stayed friends. We both enjoyed it so much, we can't wait until our next holiday with SPOH!
My confidence as a person has grown, and Jane was brilliant throughout our stay.
I want to thank you all for this experience that meant a lot to us."

"This was my first holiday alone with my daughter and I booked to go on this group holiday to ensure friends for my daughter to play with and company for myself on an evening.
The hotel was just perfect! Amazing location and facilities and the food was fantastic with so much choice.
Our host was Jane and she was just wonderful! From arriving at the hotel to waving us off she was always around and available to support us all. On a personal level Jane is just a wonderful human being - kind, helpful, supportive, funny and approachable! She actually made the holiday for me and my daughter. "

"Very happy with SPOH hotel choice, location, and hosts. My 7 year old had the best time and the holiday was just what we needed. Will definitely book again with SPOH."
- Dawn & Adam (7) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, July 2023
"We had a wonderful time in Lanzarote with a group of 30+. Lovely people, stunning hotel, fabulous host and by far the best holiday we’ve ever been on. Having not travelled abroad for several years I was a little apprehensive but booking through SPOH gave me the reassurance I needed. I loved how inclusive it felt throughout, and how relaxed it was. We opted to do lots of things as a group, but we also felt comfortable doing our own thing when we wanted to. It was the perfect balance. "

"We have just returned from an absolutely fantastic holiday in Lanzarote. The hotel was gorgeous, the other families were so nice and our host Jane made us feel very welcome and ensured we were all having a great time. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to book again for next year!"
- Lucy & Cruz (11) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, July 2023
"Fabulous holiday to Lanzarote! Lovely people to spend time with, both adults and children alike. If you are tempted to give it a go then just do it, you won't regret it. Single Parents on Holiday host was great, helped all of the adults and kids get to know each other and sorted us all out on the excursions we wanted to do. We had a really great holiday and will be looking to book for a new destination in 2023!"
- Emma & Bella (6) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2022
"Without Single Parents on Holiday I would not have been brave enough to take my girls abroad. Now I have the confidence to do so. SPOH offered an excellent hotel with delicious food. Our host, Jane, was so welcoming and supportive. I would definitely book with SPOH again. "
- Hazel, Alice (12) & Freya (10) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2022
"My first ever SPOH holiday with two young teenage boys. It was fantastic and gave me the confidence to do it again. The kids loved it. The host Jane was fantastic and couldn’t do enough for you. "
- Julie, Jack (14) & Oliver (12) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2022
"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!"

"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."

"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!"
