The October half term is a brilliant time to get away with the family for some last minute winter sun. The UK summer is well and truly over, but in as little as four hours you could be having heaps of family fun in the Canary Islands. Lanzarote is our favourite island for sun, sand and smiles from everyone – grumpy teenagers included!
The Gran Castillo, Playa Blanca is in the perfect location to get the most out of the climate in Lanzarote. Located on the southern most point of the the volcanic island, the weather is warmer, with less of a breeze. The Canary Islands are notorious for catching sun lovers out with a deceptive cool sea breeze, so please don’t forget to re-apply that sun scream regularly!
The Gran Castillo is superb for family holidays. The Animation Team host a whole range of child and family friendly activities throughout each day. Whether it is archery, water aerobics, dressing up as pirates or having fun at the mini-disco, your little ones will be as well looked after as you are. The hotel also boasts an incredible eleven pools, one of which is entirely catered to children with slides and water fountains.
The 5-star hotel is close to the beautiful Papagyo Beach, although this is a short walk away so you may want to make the most of the car rental service provided through the hotel. There is also a cycle hire shop within the complex if you feel like getting active and exploring the rest of the island.
Having stayed at this hotel personally, we can assure you that a family holiday at the Gran Castillo, Lanzarote will far exceed your expecations. The facilities are excellent, the rooms are luxurious and the food is delicious. Everything you need for a fantastic family half term holiday all in one place.
