About THB Tropical Island Hotel
The THB Tropical Island Hotel is a family friendly four star hotel in Playa Blanca, on the southern end of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands.

The hotel prides itself on a family friendly approach, with specifically tailored accommodation choices, facilities for the kids with four children’s pools amongst the 14 onsite, a children’s water playground, games room, and animation team providing daily activities and entertainment.

The rooms are spacious, modern and comfortable with large furnished balconies to take advantage of the 300 days a year of sunshine the Canary Islands receive.

Local Area and Things to Do
The Playa Dorada beach is the centre of the Playa Blanca town centre and can be reached by a free shuttle bus from the hotel. The beach is protected by breakwaters, making the water gentle and suitable for children to swim, and sunbeds and parasols are available for hire. For the more active there is a range of water sports available for all ages. There are several cafes and bars directly opposite the beach for a drink or a meal while still soaking in the beach vibe.
For the active family members, a hike to the top of the dormant volcano Montana Roja is recommended for the views of the Atlantic and across the La Bocayna strait to Fuerteventura.
