You will receive a homely welcome at this five-star boutique hotel. Situated in the well-heeled Playa del Cable suburb of Lanzarote's capital, Arrecife, a stay at Hotel Villa VIK feels almost like being on a language exchange with a foreign family. The des-res setting only adds to the charm. The pair of giant ceramic urns that greet you at the gate offers a clue to the colonial flavour of the interior decor. An earthy exterior gives way to exposed stone indoors. Return visits are common as guests catch up with the family, so to speak. Every stay is nostalgic, conjuring up memories of previous holidays. This is Airbnb, with a classic service that is as friendly as it is formal.

Given Lanzarote's size, nowhere is exactly far on the island but the airport's proximity means you start your holiday that bit earlier.

The hotel is in the upmarket Playa del Cable suburb of the island's capital Arrecife.
By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Lanzarote take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a five-minute drive from Lanzarote airport. Free parking on-site.
