My friend and I booked a last minute break for one week at the Lancelot. I was a bit skeptical when a lady at the airport bus transfer station made a comment about it being odd that we chose Arrecife, but there was absolutely no need to worry. The town itself is very quite, with very few tourists (we barely heard any other English-speaking people when we were there). The hotel itself is literally across the road from the beach - a gorgeous stretch of white sand and clear water. There are no sun loungers or umbrellas but there are a few palm trees for shade and it is nice and peaceful, with just a few locals around.
The hotel staff are friendly - they don't speak much English but are happy to help in any way they can. There is a small pool on the roof - it was virtually empty the whole time we were there - like having our own private pool! And there is also a basic gym on the roof which was empty the entire time too.
The rooms are nice - pretty basic but spotless. Definitely get a sea-view room if you can - the main road can be quite noisy when the door is open but the view is totally worth it, and its quiet with the door shut (there is also air-con but we found the room to be cool enough without it!)
We went for bed and breakfast - the buffet was pretty basic. A selection of breads, slices of meat and cheese and a different type of egg every day. Also mini donuts, fruit, juices and coffee. There is also a piano bar in the basement, but we were disappointed to find it wasn't open during our trip.
I would definitely recommend the Lancelot for people looking for somewhere relaxing and quiet to chill out - there were quite a few couples. It's not the best location if you are looking to party - there are a handful of bars along the stretch of beach around the hotel but they were pretty quiet. But if you do want to go somewhere more lively, its only a 20 euro taxi drive to Puerto del Carmen or 10 euros to Teguise.
