Luxury yurt accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
It is a wonderful place for a family holiday with small children and a great place to recharge your batteries. (more)Alison Brookes Day
Fabulously relaxing, beautiful island, relaxed yet very responsive hosts. A great experience...Great for kids with donkey rides, missions to collect eggs every day, and to hang out with other kids on the communal trampoline, pirate boat and playground. (more)Michelle Levene
Most memorable were the rural location with an opportunity to see the landscape and vegetation. The space, both our private area around our yurt and outside where the kids were free to play on the trampoline and meet the chickens and donkey. The smallness of the resort and the uncrowded beach. The morning bike ride into the village for bread. (more)Roos Eisma
From €1225 - €1610 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Lanzarote beach house, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Beautiful landscapes, excellent food! Great for a relaxing holiday. Tips? Hire a car to explore the island, there is lots to see, from beaches to the national park, it's well worth it! Local benefits? Yes, particularly if you stay at the Finca de Arrieta, they are environmentally friendly. Overall rating? Excellent holiday, great chance to recharge for the rest of the year! (more)Lila Caballero
From €925 - €1225 per accommodation per week
Gran Canaria walking holiday
Memorable parts? We really enjoyed the walks and being away from any crowds. Brilliant scenery. Tips? Go for the better class accommodation. Three of the hotels we stayed in were only just alright but the other three were very good. Local benefits? The economy is certainly supported by tourism. Overall rating? We had a wonderful time. (more)Catherine Lane
From £709 - £789 excluding flights
Gran Canaria walking tours, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? The hiking was fantastic in Gran Canaria. The group was ideal in that we all seemed to be similar abilities and ages and there was no fear of feeling left behind. The guide was very enthusiastic and encouraging. Always felt very confident in the routes. Tips? The walking was quite challenging and should be entertained by walkers who are relatively fit and experienced only. The listing as moderate is fair and should be continued. Local benefits? We stayed... (more)Sarah Reeve
From £745 - £895 including UK flights
Whale and dolphin watching in La Gomera
4.5 star (more)pam telman
We had three boat trips to see the whales and dolphins. All 3 were great we saw animals every time and different ones each day. The crew were friendly and gave lots of information verbal and written. I was particularly moved by their obvious sensitivity towards the mammals. (more)Linda Hudson
The most memorable part was lots of jumping dolphins! I've taken 8 dolphin watching tours in 6 days and managed to see 6 species (Rough-toothed dolphin, Atlantic spotted dolphin, Short-finned pilot whales, Bottlenose dolphin, Common dolphin and Cuvier's beaked whale!!!) (more)Patty Tse
From €595 excluding flights
Lanzarote self catering cottage in the Canary Islands
We expected the finca to be lovely but it far exceeded our expectations. The Garden Cottage was perfect for a couple who wanted privacy but still all the facilities of the shared areas...Excellent! (more)Helen Wilson
Fantastic! Whilst we were there most of the other guests were couples with young children but as a childless couple we were catered for just as perfectly. The finca is a beautiful place, the owners are friendly and helpful, can't praise it enough! (more)Lisa Carver
Great experience, wonderful hosts and beautiful surroundings... (more)Sarah Slade
From €665 - €910 per week (sleeps 4)
Yurt holiday accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
The most memorable part was watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! (more)Angellique Sunter
We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa – the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. (more)Michelle Christensen
Absolutely lovely. It is probably a huge cliche but seeing the children laughing and playing by themselves and with new friends meant I was more relaxed - it all just ticked over perfectly and resulted in a great holiday. (more)Kate Macnab
From €1085 - €1470 per accommodation per week
Lanzarote villa accommodation, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Going on a day trip to a remote island organised by owner Tila and swimming on an empty beach. Tips? Definitely rent a car and try arrive in day light as roads signs easily missed in dark Local benefits? Yes - completely. Overall rating? Excellent, cheap and cheerful, direct flights, lots to do...brilliant family holiday would have been equally good for a couple or friends. (more)Zara Stassin
From €1715 - €2275 per villa per week (sleeps 6)
Lanzarote villa holiday, Fishermans Cottage, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Arriving at Fisherman’s Cottage and seeing the wonderful location. Tips? It's not a holiday destination for clubbers. If you want a few days relaxation by the sea come to fisherman’s cottage. Local benefits? We shopped in the local supermarket and ate out locally. The cottage was totally solar powered with 'green' loos. So yes to both. Overall rating? 10 out of 10. It was so much better than I expected. Jill and Maria were both lovely and friendly.... (more)Laura Whelan
From €805 - €1155 per week (sleeps 4)
Unusual accommodation in Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Very good....went bodega hopping for my birthday! (more)Chantel Dunn
Some of the most memorable parts of the holiday were: finding eggs in the hen house, lying in the bath at Fisherman's Cottage watching the sea, wine tasting at La Cantina, Teguise & at El Grifo Bodega and driving on the fabulous, twisty, unique scenic roads. (more)Georgina Tongue
The setting and accommodation, plus the very warm and helpful owners and staff. The events organised were great, paella night with live jazz and sangria, also the island trip to La Grocia was very memorable!!! (more)Chris Parr
From €665 - €910 per couple per week
Fuertaventura stargazing tour, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? The stars by night tour was exceptional. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about astronomy. We particularly liked his storytelling style of his talk as he guided us through the night sky. This was perfectly balanced with the scientific input. Tips? Book now!!! This experience should not be missed. Local benefits? Very little environmental impact. We stood in the dark looking at stars through a telescope. Overall rating? So... (more)helen kemp
From €47 - €67 per tour
Lanzarote eco villa, Canary Islands

From £695 - £825 per couple per week
Tenerife holiday apartments, sleeps 2
Memorable parts? The magical scenery of the north western side of this beautiful island - Mount Teide, the Masca gorge and Garachico plus the area around the accomodation - Los Realejos, El Socorro beach etc. Driving on the almost vertical switchback roads was also a memorable experience! Tips? February was a brilliant time to go if you want to walk. Warm but not too hot, although be prepared for a few damp/cloudy days. Evenings were quite chilly in the accomodation and there was... (more)christine Preston
From €45 per apartment per night (sleeps 2)
La Gomera self catering apartments, Canary Islands
Memorable parts? Local boat trips spotting a Brydes whale, a sea turtle, and three different dolphin species doing their stuff in the Atlantic. Valle Gran Rey on La Gomera is a lovely warm laid back getaway with fine black sands, sheer cliffs, steep mountains, pretty villages and national park forest at the top. Tips? Make sure you check directions before setting off on walks off the coast, or in National Park, as it can be a bit far between signposts and a little confusing! Try... (more)Debra Evelyn
From €23 - €40 per apartment per night (sleeps 2)
Tenerife villa holiday, sleeping 4 people
The house and environment was fabulous! Wonderful nature! A way from everything! Very nice people and nice for our children. (more)mathilde geens
The beautiful view from our balcony, out to the sea one way and up to the mountains in the other direction...A fantastic, relaxing, family holiday a world away from the stereotypical family Tenerife holiday that you might find on the south of the island! (more)Kristina Roe
The beautiful setting and 'local' feel of the place. The owners of the finca were extremely pleasant and created a very relaxed homely feel to the holiday. The accommodation - 'The Stonehouse' was unique and quaint. (more)Jenny Marshall
From €50 - €100 per villa per night (sleeps 4)
Lanzarote rural self catering accommodation, Canary Islands
Couldn't have asked for more! This hideaway, hidden amongst Lanzaote's awesome landscape, made a perfect home from home for me and my young family. The added benefits were for me a hammock, my 2 boys a 'garden' to explore and my husband enjoyed the alfresco cooking. The owners left Great tips on best beaches and places to explore too. (more)Rachel Grevatte
Wonderful break in a Rural part of Lanzarote. The beaches at Costa De Papagayo are to be recommended for a relaxing in the sun and out of the wind...Excellent holiday. (more)Stuart Mackay
It really was a beautiful holiday. The location was wonderful; the landscape was amazing, nice and quiet, in contact with nature. We liked hiking in the beautiful Lanzarote volcanic areas and along the paths of La Geria wine region. (more)Chiara Zubelli
From €60 per house per night (sleeps 4)
Gran Canaria hotel accommodation
Memorable parts? The very friendly greeting from Magui & her English speaking staff member, the freshly squeezed orange juice from the fruit growing in the garden, the very twisting mountain roads of the island and the route to the hotel. Found the use of the old buildings/renovation of them fascinating, retention of old features in the rooms (we had an old oven in ours), the different levels of the garden and the fruit trees - just wonderful. Tips? Unless you are sure of it being... (more)Fiona Dodds
From €86 - €100 per room per night
