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.

As we arrived we were met with a real warm welcome from the reception staff our luggage was taken care of and taken to our room.After checking in we were invited to have a welcome drink which we enjoyed outside soaking up the lovely weather.

We stayed half board the meals were excellent and plentiful with a varied choice.Evening entertainment was very good .

Very good in parts but ........
We have stayed at the Riu Palace Tenerife many times but thought we have a change and try this sister hotel . The Reception area is splendid and the rooms exactly the same as in Tenerife so very good. The grounds and polls are excellent too. However, the dining arrangements are awful and inadequate with queues for tables at times. The main buffet area is out side the main building so it is accessed form the inside restaurant via two sets of doors so with around 900 guests there is constant rushing and chaos. There is also outside dining but really not at all suitable for the evenings even with The gas flame heaters! For us this chaos with dining ha put us off ever returning to this hotel. However there are 2 excellent A la carts restaurants so this gave us welcome relief on2 evenings. We also are unhappy about room allocation as in Tenerife we always had a lovely side sea view room despite booking only a standard room. With this hotel you are made to feel like a second class citizen for booking a standard room. The Reception manageress told us that they have 9 grades of rooms and if you book only a standard you get a poor view which put us in our place. Very few of the rooms have a Sea View although the hotel is clos to the sea. We intend booking for Tenerife again next year! is the More
Very relaxing hotel
Just returned from a week in the beautiful Riu Palace. From the minute we arrived we were greeted by very friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Carlos at reception and the men who work at the pool deserve a special mention for their kindness. The room we had was spectacular overlooking the hotel grounds and ocean. The room was very modern and spotless. The bathroom was superb. The only downside of the room was the two single beds pushed together to make a double with no clasp to keep them together. Also having to pay for the use of the safe in the room is not very 'five star'. The breakfast was excellent every morning with lots of choice to eat and drink. The food at dinner was ok. The food cooked in front of you while you wait was excellent but unfortunately most other food was luke warm if not cold. I would recommend going early for dinner when food was fresher. Also it would have been nice to have water/tea/coffee included with dinner. We didn't enjoy the Spanish tapas restaurant...no atmosphere and the food wasn't great. We didn't go to the other restaurant as the menu was quite limited. The bars are lovely especially the one over looking sea. The pools were stunning especially the two infinity pools. Yes people do reserve sun beds in prime position but there was never an issue getting a bed in the sun near the pools. Smoking was an issue at times at the pool and in the restaurant. We had to move a couple of times. Thankfully there were not too many smokers at the hotel. It would have been better to have a designated smoking area in the restaurant. The majority of guests were over 65. There were some couples with young children. The hotel is very accessible for people with limited mobility. Guests were mainly from the Uk and Germany. There are lots of shops and great restaurants very close to the hotel. We tried the Indian 'Misbah' and the Italian beside it. I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing sun holiday and would definitely return.More
Love coming back to this place !!
Now our 4th visit to this fabulous hotel and already booked again for later in the year. Meloneras has more 4 and 5 star hotels than anywhere else on Gran Canaria I believe and this must be right at the top end. The food is very good, high quality and varied (we even had sushi one night). I Notice this time they had put tea/coffee makers in the room which was new from our last visit. There are 5 heated pools and they are genuinely heated to an acceptable level too. Staff are always very friendly and nothing seems too much trouble in the dining room for them.More
