A designer's dream, this hotel is the epitome of retro-chic. Cue a stunning salon bar dressed in vivid purple and cerise. Lounges with low rainbow-coloured sofas. Guest rooms in vibrant shades or designer neutrals. But the décor isn't the only eye-catching thing about this place. It's close to a swathe of beach and sand dunes.
Inside the hotel grounds, on the other hand, you're in the middle of a sub-tropical oasis. Some of the palms in the gardens are reckoned to be 1,000 years old and their shade provides cool and tranquil spots for lounging. Carved into the midst of this are two landscaped pools. One is freshwater and the other saltwater with whirlpool jets. There's a hot plunge pool too.
On the food front, there's buffet and waiter service at different times of the week in the main restaurant. Plus there's a choice of other restaurants and bars. These include an Italian trattoria and the impressively styled à la carte Orangerie with its chandeliers and tall mirrored columns. Barbecues are served up several times a week from the seaside buffet on the terrace.
Finally, tucked away in the gardens is a luxurious state-of-the-art health and wellness centre where you can sink into a thalasso pool and indulge in a wide range of treatments. Tai chi and yoga classes keep the vibe suitably relaxed.

Classic High End Spanish Hotel @ Maspalomas
I spent part of Easter weekend here, as someone who came on her own to get some sun. I did manage to do this. But overall I wouldn't repeat the experience at this hotel or come back to Maspalomas. The hotel is fine, run professionally, in a good location, next to the dunes and beach, and a high end shopping area, but they do something which I endeavour not to do in my own business, and that is nickel and dime my customers. It's actually a mix of nickle-and-diming and then being overtly generous, so you don't know what to expect sometimes. They try to maintain a particular level of decorum by doing things like setting a dress code for dinner. There is also the Concierge at work, who on my first afternoon there, questioned what I was doing going to the elevators, was I going to see a guest at the hotel? When I let him know I was a guest, and not pleased about his questioning, he tried to charm his way out of such a terrible faux pas. I was surprised to encounter what used to be a common occurrence for single women at high end hotels. A few other things: in general, the quality of the food itself on Gran Canaria (not necessarily the cooking, but the ingredients) seems not to be high quality. Not a lot of vegetables, good amount of fruit, but even these are on the poorer quality side. Not a lot to do in Maspalomas, so you can walk to Playa del Ingles, but you'll only enjoy Playa del Ingles if you are slumming. Overall it's really rather tacky. Consequently, I'm not so sure I'll return to Gran Canaria for a holiday, even though you can be almost 100% assured of finding sun there.More

A fantastic hotel
This is the third time we ve stayed here and every time it lives up to expectations - from the warm welcome with a glass of fizz to the service/ food. We choose here because of the weather, cleanliness of the hotel and the fact that the spa area has an adults only pool. This is a really quiet relaxing area but it would be even better if they made sure that kids didn't sneak in with their parents and if this ban extended to babies. The food is really good, excellent breakfasts and BBQs on set nights. Other nights there is a set menu - not for the faint hearted as the choices often include rabbit etc. there is always a veg option. The food is well presented, with great pride. More chicken dishes would be welcome. The service and friendliness of staff is excellent and the attention to detail is faultless . A great experience! Sun beds are plentiful although some guests " reserve" their special places by exchanging money with the pool guy. However we always got the beds we wanted so were unaffected. There is entertainment each evening. Some cringe making some excellent but there are other places nearby to explore. A great central location, right on the beach and in walking distance to shops and transport. Highly recommended and we ll definitely return!More
One Of The Best Holidays Ever
We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Seaside Palm Beach. The whole experience was fantastic, from the minute we arrived, right up to leaving. The room was excellent, the food was outstanding, but what really made the holiday was the staff, they were all brilliant, a special mention must go to Elitza, who remembered our names after just one introduction, and the lovely Lilyanne, who has the best collection of spectacles we have ever seen, they were both a wonderful example of what customer service is all about. We will definitely be back next year.More
70's style gem, would definitely return
Initially we were sceptical about being the only ones in our 30s but there were families and others in 30s/40s. From reading TA we got the impression clientele were predominantly over 60s. 5mins from the beach. 8 mins from the boulevard shops. 20/25mins from the airport. Chose the hotel based on TA reviews and found the hotel met our expectations. Staff are impeccable and willing to assist in any manner. From what we understand the hotel is German owned and service is efficient and thorough. Hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The 70s vibe in unique but still retro modern. The grounds are beautiful and kept in excellent order. The varying pools allow for all members of the family to be satisfied. The sauna was used by my husband and found to be in good condition. The ground include many 1000 year old palm trees and plenty of well established plants/foliage. There are many sun beds and umbrellas. Be warned that the German holiday makers are up bright and early to snap up the beds but there are plenty for all, even when arriving later in the morning/day. Be aware that there are staff in the grounds to set up the sun beds with hotel towels for you - ring the bell inside the huts dotted around the grounds for service. The spa is light and airy. I enjoyed a massage which very relaxing and of reasonable cost. The Africa bar is efficient and has various snacks e.g sandwiches, crepes, waffles, etc on the menu. Can get busy during lunch hours. Staff do walk around the pools to give drinks service too. Our room was to a pleasing standard (room 532).Plenty of storage and space. We had a standard room looking onto the pools which had lovely sunshine late afternoon/evenings. Rooms are quiet and beds particularly comfortable. There is a plate of fruit left daily and during turn down service bottles of water and chocolates are left which is a thoughtful touch. Wifi is free and connection available throughout the whole hotel including pool area. Being half board we had breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is a helps yourself buffet with the opportunity to have fresh omelettes, bacon, etc cooked while you wait. Wide choice of breads, cereals, porridge, fruit, pancakes, etc. Again staff are diligent to take orders for teas/coffees and clear away plates when appropriate. Only niggle encountered is birds flying around the eating tables and especially at the bread counter. Obviously the buffet and seating is outdoors unless there is bad weather. Evening meals can be taken in the main restaurant which are either a set menu where you can choose from two or three options for each course and a buffet dessert table/cheeses. On three nights a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday ) there is a barbecue menu which is buffet style. Lots choice of fish and meat. We preferred the barbecue evenings! Quality of food is excellent. You can also (as half board) swap your dinner for lunchtime by telling reception and also use another restaurant on the hotel site e.g Esencia and La Bodega. La Bodega is a tapas restaurant- you receive a reduction if 20€ per person from total bill. We ate here twice and enjoyed both occasions. We selected 4 dishes to share between us and had more than enough to eat. Esencia is a specialist restaurant. Supplement of 11€ per person. Again you can have the set menu or a'la carte menu. We ate once here but found it difficult to determine what the food choices were and had to ask the head waiter. The variety of food is not particularly extensive but is to a high quality. Maspalomas is quiet with little nightlife. The boulevard shops are open till late and are of good quality but can be expensive! We walked from the hotel to Playa del Ingles which was long (well over an hour). The route along the sand and seashore is quicker than walking inland. (Hotel is only 5mins walk from the beach) The route takes you by the impressive sand dunes and the nudist beach. Playa del Ingles is a tacky and very built up with tourism in mind. Enjoyed the walk but found Playa del Ingles incompatible with Maspalomas- we quickly returned to Palm Beach! We took a local bus to Playa de Mogan for the Friday market. Local bus was particularly packed on market day. Market is ok but very repetitive e.g bags, belts and sunglasses! Mogan is a pretty seaside town with a few canals. Very very busy on Fridays so be warned. Local taxis are reasonable and efficient. Enjoyed our week here and would not hesitate to return. Most people we spoke to had been here previously and return year on year. Had a relaxing and enjoyable week - thank you!More

Excellent hotel very well managed with great staff
We returned to this hotel after many years because BA now fly a winter service to GC from LHR. We hope this continues in 2014/2015. The hotel is very good with excellent rooms, very good restaurants, great pools with a number of outdoor activities including boules, shuffleboard, tsai chi and water aerobics. The food is great, the bars excellent, the nightly entertainment in the bar is varied and of a high standard.Above all, the staff, both indoors and outdoors, are excellent and provide outstanding service. The weather was good with temperatures in the 70's and clear blue skies. What's not to like? We shall be there next year with BA hopefully!More
