Brilliant Hotel and Location.
Me and my girlfriend stayed here from the 1st to the 15th of June, we stayed half board deluxe. We arrived and got a free glass of champagne and orange juice while we checked in. When we got to the room (0133) had a sandwich each waiting on us as we were arriving late (which was really good). The staff were lovely but very limited with English. The food for breakfast and dinner was always good, can't complain about it. The pool area is really nice has a deluxe area and non deluxe. It also has 4 pools ( 2 kids pools a main pool and another pool at the other side of the hotel). Will be back to this hotel again without a doubt! Would recommend going all inclusive either normally or deluxe.More
Lovely setting very friendly helpful staff
Spent a week here at the end of May with my husband and elderly father. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Our rooms were lovely overlooking the sea. We had a lovely relaxing time. Any queries we had were quickly and efficiently dealt with by the staff. We felt very pampered and looked after. I would recommend it to anyone coming to Lanzarote. The location was perfect for the Marina and a walk into the main resort.More

Excellent - All inclusive 5/5, half board 4/5
We spent an awesome week at the Hesperia Playa Dorada. The hotel is a little uninspiring from the front but don't let that put you off. Inside is much nicer, it's ever so clean, really well maintained, spacious and airy. We had a the deluxe room with a view right on the promenade, well worth the upgrade cost. Rooms are large, sufficiently equipped and cleaned daily. There's free wi-fi in the rooms and throughout the hotel (including by the pool), and it works! The pool has ample sun loungers and umbrellas. If that's not for you, the hotel is on the beach front. The food is stunning, something for everyone. Freshly cooked if you don't mind a 2 minute wait or ample buffet food, a huge selection for breakfast and lunch. So, what didn't we like. We stayed half board and the drinks are a little pricey, £3,80 for a large beer (probably 3/4 of a pint). We really didn't like having to pay for water at the evening meal, I think even for half board customers water (just a bottle) should be free at the evening meal. There's no real lunch option for the half boarders, unless you want to pay £23 for a buffet lunch. We liked the no smoking on the balcony rules, but this isn't enforced (not sure how you would enforce it though). When we checked in I think the reception could explain more about the hotel to you, for example, we didn't know Deluxe room upgrades had access to a VIP breakfast, no one explained how or where to get a pool towel. These are minor quibbles. This is a great hotel, ignore reviews below 4/5, they're simply not accurate. We'd stay again and recommend the hotel. Mr Hotel Manager, should you read this, a bit of advice, when the pool bar closes you need to lock the freezer containing the ice-creams immediately. Dishonest thieving Brits are stealing the premium ice-creams.More
Well worth visiting
Stayed at Hesperia Playa Dorada in Playa Blanca Lanzarote for a week in June. This hotel is not the prettiest in Playa Blanca, indeed my husband referred to it as 'The Ugly Duckling'. This hotel soon turned in to a Princess! We stayed in a Deluxe Double Room with a sea view. We were sceptical at first as room 0123 was ground floor and seemed very vulnerable. However we couldn't fault the view and the tree just outside the room was very pretty and added to the ambiance. There was a huge fridge in the room and we also made use of the safe. Room was clean and comfortable. (We were a little disconcerted when we first arrived as the water from the bathroom sink ran brown for the first couple of minutes. Once it cleared it was fine). The food was very good. We ate mostly in the Volcano Restaurant. The way the food was presented enticed you to go back and sample more. There was a wide range of food - something for everyone. The only down side regarding 'drink' was the lack of any premium beers. The 'cervesa' served was not the best. Regarding staff - could not fault anyone. All staff were very helpful and very polite. They were always willing to assist with anything. Entertainment. ... not bad but could be better. Although the animation team work very hard they should perhaps stop the hi-de-hi holiday camp theme during the evening entertainment hour. They should be aware there are adults in the audience who do not wish to be treated as children which was the feeling we had. This is not to knock the team, who as I said earlier, work very hard, but is given as constructive criticism. Pool area is very nice and clean. We made use of the Deluxe area with the astro turf. Very nice ! On the whole this hotel is a good 'all-rounder' and one we will consider for a future return. Well done all !!More
Lovely relaxing week
I stayed at the Hotel Hesperia during the last week of May and travelled with my elderly parents. I upgraded to the deluxe sea view rooms and wasn't disappointed. I emailed in advance asking if our rooms could be together and in a quiet location and my request was granted. We were allocated 2 ground floor rooms 125 and 126 and were very happy with them. The bedrooms were large and comfortable with plenty of storage space and lovely views out to sea. The housekeepers did a great job of keeping the rooms spotless and the towels and bedding was changed regularly. We did have to pay for the room safe which I was aware of before going and it was big enough to take all of our valuables. We used the Volcano restaurant for our meals which was part of our deluxe package and enjoyed the calmer atmosphere of it compared to the main restaurant which we had to use on a couple of nights when the Volcano was having work carried out. The dinning room staff worked very hard clearing and resetting the tables and special mention to Sara who always greeted us with a smile and showed us to our table and Ignacious (apologies if I've misspelled his name) who was always helpful with fetching our morning teas. We enjoyed the wide variety of food especially having the option of choosing the meat or fish we wanted and having it cooked freshly in front of us. We also enjoyed choosing our toppings at the pasta and pizza station which were all made freshly for us. Soups and desserts were also very tasty and replenished frequently. The hotel is in a great location near the lovely Dorada beach and Marina and has well maintained gardens and lovely pools.We all enjoyed a very relaxing week here and would have no hesitation in returning to the Hesperia.More
