Hotel Palm Beach Gran Canaria: Paradise by the Maspalomas Dunes

When choosing a hotel in Gran Canaria, this time we thought we’d opt for the island’s first Design Hotel – the award-winning Hotel Palm Beach. Luxury is standard here and can be experienced in every aspect of the hotel’s design and service. As the owner, Theo Gerlach, says: "You have to offer guests what you yourself expect from a hotel" - and we certainly felt that sentiment during our stay here.

The hotel is in a great location, right beside the ocean. It is surrounded by a fabulous palm tree oasis on the edge of a nature reserve. Not far away, there is a five-mile-long golden beach and the famous dunes of Maspalomas - all within easy walking distance.

We found this to be the perfect place to take early morning walks by the ocean, past the lighthouse to the beach promenade with its many shops and restaurants or along the Maspalomas Dunes. The amazing gardens beside the hotel pool offer the ideal spot to relax after a busy day – you feel like you’re in paradise, surrounded by palm trees and pools.

The interior of Seaside Palm Beach exudes retro charm. Only 200 hotels in around 40 countries all over the world qualify to be Design Hotel members because of their outstanding design and pioneering architecture. You won't fail to be impressed by the hotel's unique design. The luxurious rooms and suites are bathed in light and offer wonderful views, with design and comfort forming a perfect combination.

This is a great place for families or couples and offers lots of facilities for kids of all ages. Entertainment, the Miniclub, the playground and children's pool, as well as a special kids menu, will keep the kids happy and occupied while mum and dad unwind by the pool.

There are three exclusive golf courses nearby which offer green fee concessions to hotel guests. Have a workout at the fitness centre under the palm trees, play tennis on the floodlit tennis court, or take part in one of the many outdoor and indoor sports available. Get adventurous with water sports or take a day trip to one of the picturesque villages on the island. After a busy day, the luxurious spa offers first-class facilities such as saunas and thalasso pools. Alternatively, you can let yourself be pampered with body and facial treatments using top-class products.

The food options here are also superb. The hotel attaches great importance to providing quality local and seasonal products, and they create outstanding dishes in a daily demonstration of their passion for imaginative cooking. Each of the restaurants has its own individual gastronomic vision: the Main Restaurant with a variety of à la carte dishes, themed buffets and barbecues, the Esencia with its acclaimed Mediterranean specialities, and the Tapas restaurant, La Bodega. The extensive breakfast buffet is served on a beautiful terrace in the main restaurant. The perfect way to end your day is with a cool cocktail in the bar while you enjoy an entertaining live performance

This hotel is the best experience you can have in Gran Canaria!

I’ve been travelling ever since a was a child but my first large trip was at the age of 13 when I was sent to live for a couple months to London. This trip has changed me and ever since I just want to see more and more of our beautiful world. Every trip gives me new emotions, charge and strength to keep going further.
