Hotel Los Fariones is set directly on the sandy beach and steps from the bars, restaurants and shops of Puerto del Carmen.
The hotel sits right on the white-sand beach and the bars, restaurants and shops of the strip, are steps away from its front door. Plus, old town Puerto del Carmen is about a four-minute walk away.
Most of the spacious rooms at Los Fariones offer ocean views from their balconies. The tropical grounds feature lush vegetation, towering palm trees and sun terraces overlooking the sea.

Peace and Quiet with excellent service
Lovely peaceful hotel (in off season) hotel showing signs of age, but very clean. A member of staff stated that hotel was going to be refurbished in the near future. Breakfast was excellent, (tip - eat out on the small terrace, view is lovely). Location is perfect sat between the 'strip' and the the quieter harbour area, right on the beach. Room had ocean view. Would stay at this hotel again.More

gardens and beach
excellent room but no air conditioning if you are going in July or August. Lovely gardens and beach. Excellent Staff. Great breakfast. Very good restaurants with in walking distance.Newly renovated promenade is a great asset .More
Haven't been here since 2001 when the island was less developed, however, this hotel was a find back then and still retains its charm with a private, beautiful location. Photos are of the beach front from the hotel garden. Busy with locals at weekends, a perfect base for exploring the rest of the island with comfortable rooms and 5 mins from public beaches or old town Puerto del Carmen.More
Piece of heaven
I am staying at the fariones hotel as we speak and have been staying here for the past 9 days. I am staying in room 310 which has panaramic see views as well as mountain views. The hotel has surpassed all my expectations and will remain a memory long cherished. From staff to food to cleanliness to ambience it is a five star in my bookMore
Long live the grand old lady of Puerto del Carmen!
My Father used to stay at Los Fariones many times each year, beginning just after it opened in 1987. It was then very much âa grand hotelâ - with its beautiful yet bleak modernist facade facing the street: Whilst all the rooms and their balconies overlooked a terrace with pool and palm trees and onto almost colonial style gardens (complete with the bird-cages and birds that are the hotel's logo); before sloping gently down to a semi-private beach. Today some of the glamour has faded, but only slightly, and largely because all that wonderful cast-concrete architecture has caused problems for the hotel in attempting to keep up with new technology and requirements. For example, as when it opened, there is and can never be air-conditioning in the guest rooms, although this is present in the public areas. In August this would be quite hot, but in April it was great to be able to open the balcony door and hear the ocean - and thankfully the desert climate Lanzarote produces few insects/mosquitoes to bite one in the night. Likewise there is no in room wifi, although some sort of signal can be gained from the balcony and a fast signal in the public areas. The pool is heated, cool but not cold, and being built before over zealous health-and-safety has a 9 foot (2.75m) deep-end. There is a smaller paddling type pool for children on a lower terrace. The sea is crystal clear, although the beach slopes quickly and you do not have to go very far out to be in 5-10 meters of cold but beautiful Atlantic water. There are sun-beds in rows around the pool and dotted about the gardens. To some the rooms would appear dated; but actually that is more a reflection of how identikit is modern hotel experience. Itâs a riot of 1980âs theme including pink bathroom tiles, electric-blue carpet, and simple white and rattan furniture. It all works, including the very large empty fridge for storing wine and cheese etc. We opted for a junior suite with more space and a large sofa, which was perfect for early evening drinks without having to sit on the bed or go to the bar. It will thus come as no surprise that in-spite of now working with many of the major tour operators, Thompson, Thomas Cook, British Airways Holidays etc Los Fariones is often favoured by older guests who can at least live for ten minutes without the internet. I even spotted such ancient technology as the book and newspaper; all being utilised in the pursuit of having a good holiday. Breakfast was included in our rate with a good buffet selection, although the interior of the breakfast restaurant is very bright and utilitarian - so sit outside. Lunch was by the pool, the menu very tasty and made with much local produce - although service only begins at 1pm, until 3.30pm. Each evening we walked to the old-town (turn left out of the front entrance) and ate at the fish restaurant right on the harbour wall. For the very active (we played crazy golf and tennis on-site) there is also access to the hotel owned Club Fariones sports centre across the road, with gym, sauna, exercise classes and even a Triathlon school. The Bar is very reasonably priced especially for the necessary bottled water and also local wine. In-room safety-boxes are extra at Euro15 per week and late checkout (if availability allows) can be had for Euro10 per hour. Both the these we found very easy to arrange with the very friendly reception staff. Indeed all staff were both jolly yet professional during our stay. Thus long live Los Fariones, a great hotel after all these years, and if you can live without air-con and 20-20 wifi it really is a bit of a bargain.More
