We visited the Hotel Elba Lanzarote Royal Village Resort in Playa Blanca in April 2017 for a tour of this hotel, so that we can recommend their facilities with a personal insight to our holiday clients.
The 4* Hotel Elba Lanzarote has 91 bungalows spread out within their grounds and the resort is divided into two areas catering for families as well as adult only (16 years upwards). Set back from the centre of the Playa Banca holiday resort, the town and beach is an 8 minute walk away. The hotel also offer a shuttle bus service to the popular beach of Playa Dorada.
Elba Premium Suites
There are 32 bungalows situated in the adult only area known as the Elba Premium Suites. These properties are situated to the left of reception and accessed through security gates behind the swimming pool. There are a few bungalows situated on the outside of this zone that could be noisy from the main pool area, other than that the Elba Premium Suites had a lovely chilled out ambience.
Elba Premium Suites guests have access to an adults only 25m pool which includes Los Jameos Snack & Pool Bar. We particularly liked the sun beds located in the shallows of the pool, which looked very relaxing.
El Mirador Restaurant Bar & Chill Out is part of the adult only area, situated by reception and open for breakfast and again at 6pm. Buffet lunches are served in the Yaiza Restaurant, which is open to families too.
Elba Lanzarote Royal Village Resort
There are 58 bungalows situated in the family area known as the Elba Lanzarote Royal Village Resort. There are 4 swimming pools situated in the centre of the hotel’s grounds all of which are heated in winter. The pools are linked by an island in a César Manrique style with fresh water lagoons and salt water pools.
Pepeland caters for the younger guests with daily activities organised at their Miniclub (4-7 years) and Maxiclub (8-12 years) which is open 10:30 to 13:00 & 15:00 to 17:30. The Teeniclub is a communal space within the hotel reception area to encourage 13-18 years old to make new friends.

We were impressed with the Hotel Elba Lanzarote, this hotel is catering for 2 distinct types of client. Whilst not an exclusively adult only hotel, there is enough to entice couples for a romantic break without children. For families there’s plenty of activities and facilities to keep the whole family entertained.
The typical low rise Lanzarote accommodation style has not been lost during the refurbishment, the bungalows are set in mature gardens with modern and comfortable interiors. This is the first Elba Hotel in Lanzarote, which opened in December 2016.
