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.

Amazing Hotel with fabulous staff !!!

Sadly just returned from this beautiful, stylish Hotel, wish we could have stayed longer, can't wait to return. We holidayed as a party of 6, 4 adults and two 17 year old girls. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the beds very comfortable, bathroom no bath but fabulous large shower. The grounds are exceptionally well maintained and swimming pools are immaculate. The food is superb in all restaurants. We were on a half board basis so our breakfast and dinner were included in the cost of the holiday. We chose to have lunch in the hotels Ocean View restaurant several times during our stay, which in our opinion was not only very good but excellent value for money, with a view to die for . The staff could not do enough for us at all times. Unfortunately I fell ill whilst in the restaurant and could not have asked for better care and attention not only from a lovely Belgium gentleman doctor guest and his wife, who just happened to be having lunch, but the entire restaurant staff and lovely tall porter who wheeled me discretely back to my room, not to mention genuine follow up enquiries. I can not thank them all enough. Well done Riu, you have exceptionally well trained and courteous staff in each and EVERY department. We have never experienced such professionalism in any other resort anywhere in the world, even our teenagers loved it! Oh! and we are in the trade!!! One last thing, venture to the lovely up market resort, shops and local restaurants. Maximilians is particularly good, especially the café.More

Shame about the Bathroom !!

This is a lovely hotel, good food, good staff, everything great except for the bathroom. It was a large bathroom with just a WC, wash basin and shower, but no bath ! The shower had only one glass door the rest was open, so we had to put a towel on the floor to stop the room being flooded. Also there was a glass panel onto the bedroom so if the bathroom light was switched on in the night it shone directly onto the bed ! I would expect a bath and a shower in a 5 star hotel. I know 30 million euros was spent on this hotel, but they got it wrong with the bathrooms. This would stop us from going to this hotel again, although we like Meloneros and have been to the resort many times.More

As good as the reviews suggest!

Just returned from a 7 day break with our 17yr old son over the half term holidays and the hotel is as good as so many of the other reviews suggest it was. Whilst I had not been to the hotel before, the refurbishment is very comprehensive and of a very high quality. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and professional. The food offering was plentiful and of good quality and with the option of eating in one of the two full service restaurants (for no extra charge if you are Half Board) this can provide a break from the normal buffet service in the main restaurant. I emailed the hotel the week before and they were happy to make a reservation in advance of check in for these restaurants. The location of the hotel is very good, its a only a very short walk into the resort centre with many trendy and some less trendy shops. If I return to the Canaries, I would return to this hotel without hesitation. The recent comments about the lack of bath, is purely a matter of choice and is clearly communicated in the description of the rooms. The opaque glass between the bathroom and the bedroom can let light through at night but can be mitigated if only on of the two bathroom lights are turned on. The wifi was excellent and can be picked up anywhere in the hotel, including any of the vast array of sunbeams.More

70th Birthday Celebration

We spent a wonderful weeks break in Feb at this hotel. We were fortunate to have some lovely sunny days, with only light winds at times. Everywhere is kept spotlessly clean. Our room was spacious & comfortable, including a large shower area in the bathroom. The staff always friendly & helpful. Amazing choice for all meals in the buffet, also very good service around the 4 pools. A lovely gesture, my husband received a bottle of champagne for his 70th birthday! This was our first visit to Gran Canaria, we certainly will return, and to this hotel. We would recommend the days trip through Thomson's around the Island in mini bus'es, where you get to see the diverse landscape, it really is worth while.More

Five stars and worth every one of them

A quite magnificent resort hotel - which I gather we were lucky to visit just as the sun started to shine sat the end of the first week in February. It's a vast hotel but you never feel overcrowded. There are an enormous number of sunbeds with matresses around the four pools - and adequate sun shades as well. We had a "superior" room in one of the detached buildings running down from the main U-shape of the hotel. Very comfortable, with an enormous TV, with a number of British channels available, but not the main ones apart from Sky News. But we weren't really there to watch television. Wolf Hall was on record back home. The food was tremendous. It's half board, starting with everything anyone could want for breakfast, with egg-fryers, omelette makers, pancake makers and melon slicers in profusion. Dinner offers everything from veggie fare to a carvery, via a pizza maker and fish fryer. The starters were beyond description, as were the deserts and cheeses. You just help yourself. Two smaller waiter-service restaurants at no extra charge and a large, perhaps over-large bar with music. A bit open if the wind blows. Out of the back gate there's a broadwalk leading to small supermarkets and some extremely up-market jewellers. Beyond that there are miles of dunes where if you are so inclined you can relax in the nude but don't expect to see Venus and Adonis like figure! I'd say about 85 per cent of the holidaymakers were from Germany and the Scandinavian countries, Norwegians particularly - well it gets chilly in Trondheim at this time of the year. A great two weeks' holiday via Thompson. About £3,200 all in from Bristol. Fantastic service in every department. Excellent Wi-Fi all over the complex.More
