Costa Volcan & Spa Apartments

Ideal for a short haul mini diving break.

Costa Volcan is situated in the small historic beach town of Puerto del Carmen, a few metres from jaw dropping underwater lava cave formations and colourful reefs. The resort is made up of 90 apartments and just a short stroll away from local bars, cafés, restaurants and the Playa Chica Beach. Both studios and apartments are available and have good facilities for a self catering apartment including; a two ring hob and various pans. Cutlery, plates and cups are also provided. All rooms have a private balcony offering either pool or stunning sea views. Furnished typically in a Canarian style, each room’s appearance is cool and highlighted with bright features.

When you are not exploring the waters there is plenty to do above ground. Costa Volcan Spa has a wide variety of spa and beauty treatments available to all guests. Massages to unwind after a long day diving, turkish baths and a sauna which is guaranteed to help you relax. Sun loungers surrounding the pool area are perfect for catching the sun and if the sun gets too hot for the youngsters they can pop into the cinema room and chill out watching the latest movies.

Each apartment houses a basic kitchen which is ideal for cooking or preparing your breakfast and lunches. Alternatively, the pool bar, located on site, is a great place to enjoy your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars are within a short walking distance of the hotel.

Next door to the Costa Volcan and Spa is the Manta Diving PADI centre. Their services range from family snorkelling experiences to PADI dive master and of course all that goes in-between! Diving in Lanzarote is mostly shore based; dives take place at 9am and 3pm.
