Hotel Riu Palace Meloneras Resort  

This high-end hotel has a pair of pools tucked among its pristine gardens. And it’s right on the seafront, too.

The property is set among vast gardens and ocean-view terraces. Style-wise, the hotel has just had a makeover, so everything's really contemporary. Bedrooms, for instance, are done out top-to-toe in cool grey.

In terms of location, it’s in a good spot with direct access to a car-free promenade and Maspalomas beach only a 5-minute walk away.

This really is a 5* Hotel

Other contributors have written at length about this lovely hotel with its superb food , great well trained staff and very good entertainment in the evenings. . In particular can I mention Martin , who makes everyone smile when he is on duty and Carina in reception who is very helpful and full of smiles. I would however like to make a contribution from someone who is disabled. I have a spinal problem and can only walk short distances. I ordered an electric scooter prior to arrival from Sol Mobility but you can order them through reception. I asked for a room close to a lift with a walk in shower and charging point outside. All of which I got , although all rooms have walk in showers since the refurbishment of the hotel . There are ramps where ever there are steps, ramps into the pools and even high disabled loungers by the pools. It is easy to get from the hotel to the promenade where you can travel for miles beside the sea. This is the most disabled friendly hotel I have ever stayed in and the staff are always there to help. Two general points , if you have teenage children you would probable be better off in the Riu Club Hotel next door as there was a lot more going on for younger people . If you have a young family parts of Playa de Inglis are best avoided as it seems to be very tacky and down market. We had a great holiday at the Riu Palace and would go back tomorrow.More

Fantastic break

Just returned from the Riu Palace Melonares, the hotel has recently been refurbished and is modern, spacious and set in lovely grounds. It has a great location set on a promenade just two minutes walk to a supermarket and small shopping centre with lovely bars and ten minute walk to the beach and sand dunes. The hotel is spotlessly clean. The rooms are lovely and include the use of a bath robe and have a massive overhead shower. The rooms are located in the main hotel or throughout the gardens. We stayed in room 1068 which was in the main hotel over looking the grounds but was ideal when coming in from the sun as the balcony was shaded. There are several pools including an infinity pool over looking the sea, the only down side is they were freezing. There are lots of subbed so no need to get up early and reserve them. The main restaurant was fabulous with huge choice of foods and seating inside and outside, We tried the Spanish themed restaurant, although the food was well cooked there was a limited choice and not to my taste. However the Krystal restaurant had more choices and we eat there twice. Both of these speciality restaurants had to be pre booked but at no charge. There is a bar near the infinity pool which was always lovely and shaded with a view over the sea.You could get snacks here if you did not want to go into the ocean view restaurant. Staff at this hotel are friendly and cannot do enough for you.The entertainment was excellent with a variety of good entertainers and the house band. Early evening there was relaxing music playing of either a pianist, guitarist or a saxophone. Again you could select to sit inside or outside and there are designated areas for smoking. This is a top grade hotel and you could not fault anything, We had an amazing holiday in a fantastic hotel with lovely weather. Will definitely return again.More

David V,

Exceptionnnal luxurious and peaceful hotel

The hotel is well located, close to a nice shopping centre and a "promenade" along the sea and the dune. The builing has been recently renovated. The cleanness is perfect. You can choose a room in the main building or in one of the bungalow nicely dissiminated in the wonderfull garden (I recommend: space in the room, comfortable terrasse reaching the garden). The service is smiling, professionnal and perfect. The food is good with a lot of choice of fresh product changing every night. The 2 meals in the restaurants (one french and one spannish) were great and change from the buffet with the comfort of being served in a nice place. I recommend particularly the spanish restaurant for the view on the see. The cocktails are excellent and afordable. The breakfast is amazing with a choice of fresh fruit juice, eggs pastries, cheese.... To recommand without moderation NB: not a good choice if you need animation for children although there is a kid club.More
