Where to Stay in Arrecife?
Arrecife’s El Charco de San Gine, a salt-water lagoon in the city centre surrounded by cute fishermen’s houses, is probably the more pleasant part of the city in which to find a room. The lagoon pushes into the centre of the town and there’s a pretty palm-tree lined promenade with little cafes, shops and restaurants from which to watch the small multi-coloured boats bobbing on the water.
Arrecife Accommodation Options
Despite Arrecife being a working city less geared to tourism than some of its neighbours, there are still plenty of opportunities to find a cheap hotel.
You can rent a basic studio or one bedroom apartment for two, check into a family-run guesthouse or opt for a little opulence in the handful of large hotels, although choice is limited if you want a hotel directly on El Reducto, the city’s lovely main beach. Try Hotel Lancelot which has a superb seafront location with sun terrace and luxurious swimming pool.
Many people own holiday villas within residential compounds here which they rent out – these give you a bit more space than a hotel room, there’s usually a communal pool and you get closer to the Spanish way of life, with shops and bars nearby.

Transport in Arrecife
It’s likely your tour operator will transport you from the airport to the Arrecife but if you are travelling independently there is a very cheap bus link between the airport and Arrecife’s bus depot. Taxis are available but expect lengthy cues outside the terminal building. For travelling around Lanzarote, it’s advisable to hire a car.
