Canary Island Sun – Currently not used




Lanzarote has proven to be a popular destination for single parents – this will be our forth trip to this lovely resort, a great location for some winter sun.  We’re thrilled to be taking a trip to this beautiful island the only way we know how, with a group of single parents eager for some rest, relaxation and a bit of sunshine. Treat the kids this half term and whisk them from the unpredictable torment is our British weather, to the all-year round blissful climate of the Canary Islands.

Where We're Staying

An ideal family holiday location: the weather is not too hot for little ones, and not too cold for hard-to-please teenagers. Residing in Playa Blanca, one of the newer resorts on the island, is our lovely 4 star home from home for the week. The hotel is just a short, 10 minute walk from the fabulous, golden sands of Papagayo Beaches (the nicest beaches on the island). A 20 minute walk will bring you to the magnificent Marina Rubicon, encircled in bustling restaurants, bars and shops where you’re free to indulge in the lively, local market which is held twice a week.

Lanzarote has a lot of natural beauty to offer –  from the Montaña Roja (Red Mountain) which lies at the heart of Playa Blanca, a hike enjoyed by many travelers, aptly names for it’s distinct colour resembling the warm sunset it overlooks – to the volcanic black rock which provide a striking contrast to the white buildings.


The duration of our Playa Blanca holiday is 7 nights, commencing on Sunday 12th February 2017


The cost of the holiday includes flights from London Gatwick. The times of these flights are as follows:

Outward bound:       Depart Gatwick    06:30     Arrive Lanzarote  10:40

Homeward bound:  Depart Lanzarote 11:30      Arrive Gatwick      15:30

Regional airports may be available, please email us at for information.  Please note, it’s advisable to book early to minimise regional supplements (flight prices increase as aircraft fill)

Our Resort

Our hotel for this holiday is a lovely holiday village style beach resort, just a short walk to the idyllic Papagayo beaches, which unlike other sun holidays are scarcely populated meaning you won’t be fighting for a spot to put your towel.

When you’ve finished topping up your tan, enjoy some of the incredible facilities available at the resort, including tennis courts, swimming pools, evening entertainment and… the one you’ve been waiting for… a fully equipped spa including Finnish Saunas, Jacuzzis and a Turkish Bath. Where better to unwind after a busy day of, well, unwinding.

The hotel also has a Kids Club, offering supervised fun and games for children of all ages. Activities include a children’s play area, arts & crafts, a mini disco (held at the pool so you can keep an eye from your sun lounger… or join in if the whim should take you) and a treasure hunt among a lot more activities which will keep the kids entertained this Easter.

What's Included

Things To Do

Lanzarote offers a whole range of activities for you and the kids. Being such an impressively compact island (just 37 miles long and 12 miles wide) means that everything is just a stones throw away. The beauty of a single parent holiday is that you can join in on as many or as little as you want.

Why not take a submarine or glass bottom boat trip from the nearby harbour? How about a trip up the volcano, or a tour of the resort by Segway. The Green Caves of Lanzarote prove to be an exciting and adventurous trip, with plenty of opportunities to get some magical photos.

A short journey to Lanzarote A Caballo offers horse and camel rides as well as an Apache playground and restaurant. Thrilling water parks scatter the island, allowing the kids to run wild with their new found friends. On top of that we’ll have the chance to pick up some great souvenirs from the nearby shops and the local, Marina Rubicon market.

Liz & Lewis 15, Alessandra 13 - (Lanzarote 2016)

Lucinda, Esme 12 & Clara 8 - (Lanzarote 2015)

" What i wanted was a holiday that met the needs of both my 8 year old, 12 year old (nearly thirteen), and my own!!! This is exactly what the holiday gave; friends for us all. We loved it. Great hotel, something for everyone, lots of activities on site. It was also a quiet and peaceful place. "

Nicola & Max 9 - (Lanzarote 2015)

" We really enjoyed being with a big group of people and always having someone around to talk to and for Max to play with. Elaine was amazing and went above and beyond to help and keep everyone informed -Max was ill and we nearly missed water park but she encouraged us to go knowing Max would regret it if he didn't go and she was right! ! I was also ill one night and she picked Max up for dinner and he arrived home happy and worn out 3 hours later -I dont think Elaine could have been any better plus she was a lovely interesting person with a big heart!! The people the hotel and feeling part of a big happy family safe and secure! ! Much too lonely when just the 2 of us! "

Olivia & Lily-Rose 8 - (Lanzarote 2015)

" It was great to have people in the same 'boat' who understands your life. The children get to relax and have fun with other single parent children. Also I was very relaxed in leaving my child with one of the other parents while I went for a 'grown up coffee' with one of the other parents. "

Julie & Frederick 10 - (Lanzarote 2015)

" My son could not wished for more from this holiday - he loved it and didn't want to leave. This holiday was fantastic - a great child friendly hotel with so much to do. The food was good quality and varied and all the families were lovely. Our coordinator pulled out all the stops and made a great holiday even more special. I'd highly recommend it and would definitely go back. It had so much for the children to do and there was always someone for my son to play with (usually in the pool!). it never seemed to get too crowded. It was so great for the parents too to have some adult company. "

Claire with Dominic, 8 and Zack, 19 months - (Majorca)

" This holiday was wonderful, it has given me a new lease of life! The thought of travelling with a baby was daunting at first, but now I have done it I feel that I can conquer anything. It was lovely to be in the company of such nice people and it has boosted my confidence levels. I was able to relax and enjoy my holiday fully. The beach party, the day trips out and the evening drinks by the pool really made it for me. My older son made lots of friends and so did I. I will definitely be going away on the next abroad trip. "

Isabelle, 9 - (Turkey Hisaronu)

" I like going on holiday with Single With Kids because you get to meet people who are just like you and you realise that you are not the only one whose parents are divorced. "

Nick with Katie, 8 - (Turkey Holiday Village)

" The best holiday we've ever been on! "

Sarah and Alex, 9 - (Majorca)

" This holiday is certainly included on my list of best things I have ever done! Alex had a fabulous time as did I. He always had someone to play with and we both gained a lot from the holiday. I can’t wait to go somewhere with SWK again. We both have some great memories. It was relaxed, weather great, right amount of trips, plenty to do. Good value for money. "

Pete with Teigan and Robert - (Cyprus)

" Booking the next SWK holiday as soon as I get back! "

Marie with Maisie, 13 and Tegan, 11 - (Portugal)

" This was my first holiday ‘alone’ with my girls. SWK meant that we already had friends waiting for us when we reached the hotel. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Amanda was a great co-ordinator and we were made to feel comfortable by the group, immediately. Everyone was able to spend as much time with the group, or not, as they wished. There was plenty of fun and laughter, and I had a relaxing time...a great way to take a holiday as a single parent due to a ready-made support network of other parents in the same position – other people to go to dinner with, and always someone who’ll keep an eye on your kids for 5 minutes if needed. We all had a great time, many thanks SWK! "

Roy with Mia, 9 - (Majorca)

" It was a lovely holiday and great that all the parents and children got on so well. My daughter was sad that we only stayed 7 days! The highlight? The lovely people that we shared the holiday with and the fun we all had together. "

Jez with Georgia, 11 and Katie, 9 - (Tunisia)

" This has been a most enjoyable holiday. We have been luckily to be part of a very friendly group and adults and kids have really got on. Really enjoyed the trips we've done and Debbie's done a sterling job of organising things. Would definitely recommend to other single parent families and am sure we'll be back in the future! "

Clare with Lawrence and Zoe - (Cyprus)

" We arrive as strangers, yet depart as firm friends. We've had an amazing time, lots of laughter, sun and relaxation. Thanks so much everyone. "
