Lopesan Baobab  

With its lagoon pools and safari-lodge styling, this luxury hotel brings a taste of Africa to Gran Canaria.

Walk around the jungle-like gardens of this African-themed hotel and you’ll find no fewer than 7 pools. There are 4 restaurants, too – including a great African place – plus a clutch of bars offering live shows and cocktails.

The hotel is just behind Meloneras’ promenade, about 5 minutes’ walk from one of the area’s most famous landmarks – the Maspalomas lighthouse. The beach, meanwhile, is about 10 minutes on foot.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our first holiday and it was fantastic! From the moment we arrived we were greeted with cocktails which was refreshing after our long day of travelling and the check in was quick and easy, the staff took our luggage up to our room which was great! The room was amazing, immaculate and very well presented, lovely balcony over looking the pool area. The design of the hotel was unique and very spectacular it had a lovely feel to it and the pool and bar areas were very nice. The food was yummy the staff were attentive and friendly and the live African band in the Richard Burton bar were the BEST we have ever heard so we watched them every night of our stay! I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, we made some great memories and will defiantly be returning in the near future...this really is paradise :) More

WOW !!!

Booking the hotel: expensive Booking the flight: expensive Walking in the main entrance: priceless... I just can't describe the feeling of walking in the main entrance of this resort. It is simply amazing. Lopesan baobab resort stimulates all of the sences. And every day feels like an adventure when walking around the resort. We were here in december, but still the temperatures was ok. Though the pool temperatures of some of the pools was quite refreshing. The staff was always friendly and helpful and service was not far away. I have seen that many comment on the room cleaning and wifi of this hotel, but we was not really bothered by that. This is a hotel that everybody should experience at some time. Especially if you have any children. Thank you so much for a memorable stay and an unforgettable honeymoon. More

Huge hotel but very well kept

After a very long wait at the airport for our luggage we were really annoyed to find that our first experience of the Baobab was to stand in a long slow queue to check in. Definitely not what you expect of a 5* hotel. Although they brought us a drink in the queue - basically a glass of pink pop - and a staff member stood at the front apologising for the delay, it set the holiday off to a disappointing start. Surely management of 5*calibre could come up with a more customer friendly solution, such as being seated until a member of reception became available - one to think about perhaps Baobab?? Now that's over and done with our overall experience of the hotel, its grounds and its staff was excellent. Everything was immaculately clean and well maintained - lots of interesting nooks and crannies with model animals and exotic planting to explore, not just vast featureless laying out areas. Good to have a quiet pool away from the children's area for peace and quiet - although the young children's pool did look fun! The food in the 2 restaurant was of a high standard with a good choice and constantly being re-filled. Service in the restaurants was very professional - efficient and friendly. The only things that spoilt the dining experience was the very low lighting - a bit too dark for comfort - and the close proximity of tables. When dining as a couple you were far too near to people at the sides and we found we were constantly having to ask "for somewhere quiet". In a small area where lots of tables had been placed in rows in the Baobab restaurant it looked and sounded more like a canteen than a high quality restaurant in which to enjoy a leisurely evening dinner. The bar leading out from reception was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink - the cocktails were fabulous! Hotel bedrooms are vast and have everything you need - although come on Lopesan, everyone now expects a room safe and WiFI included in the price at 5* accommodation - to charge separately looks amateurish. All in all a very good hotel, with some excellent staff. For us just one or two adjustments needed to make it a truly 5* experience.More


Consistantly good service at Baobab

This is the third occasion we have spent a holiday at the Lopesan Baobab Hotel. Each time we have found the hotel and staff to be excellent in all respects. We were fortunate to get a room with a view of the gardens and pool. Some rooms do not have such a good outlook which is to be expected and is no different to other hotels. The are a number of pools and the gardens are beautiful and very well manicured. Plenty of sunbeds which do not seem to be reserved from dawn each morning. After spending a week at the Riu Palace last year we went back to the Baobab this year. It is somewhat less formal and suits all age groups rather than just older clientele. We both agree that the Baobab provided a better all round holiday. One or two people at the hotel commented that parts of the hotel are rather dark. Well it is an African theme hotel so what would you expect - masses of floodlights everywhere. Well done to all the staff at the Baobab and thanks for a great value and enjoyable holiday.More
