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 seven pools. There are four 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.

Nice short get away
Very nice Hotel with beautiful rooms ( modern, clean and design) and the pools are very big and clean. The food is very good as well. But the only down side is the service at diner, don't go too late if you want to take your time to eat and not rush to finish.. More

Losing its sparkle............
OK so this is my third visit to the Baobab so I kind of knew what I was expecting and have very much enjoyed my other visits. These were in Oct/Nov when the hotel was a little quieter so this may have had an effect. What others have said is true - this hotel is of a very high standard, the staff are great, rooms very clean etc etc Food is good, plentiful and varied. However... we have just returned from two weeks at the end of July where the hotel was full and very busy with a huge number of children about the place. Sunbeds were mostly gone by 9.30 in the morning and little is done to prevent this apart from notices being left to ask clients to not reserve them (they still do and they were getting earlier and earlier!) In previous trips we were left a free beach bag in all the rooms (a small gesture but one of the nice touches which I also found really useful) - these were not there this time. When asked I was told they were on order but they never appeared. Mealtimes - there is supposed to be a dress code applied in the evenings which always makes you feel as if you have dressed for dinner. This is apparently dropped in high season so you end up eating with guys in flip flops and shorts - makes it feel a bit like Butlins! We very much enjoyed a one off special party where we were allowed to swim in the dark, with a DJ and torchlight on the 'beach', the other entertainment is definitely varied in quality but this is not what I pick my holidays based on. I think what I am saying is that if you are expecting luxurious five star accomodation and have paid top whack for it then prepare to be just a little disappointed.More

Great winter break
The resort was great value and provided an excellent family holiday location with loads of pools to enjoy some great weather in December. Restaurants, evening music/bands, beach, promenade and dunes were great and the resort was well connected by local buses to places of interest around the island. All in all a great holiday!More

Great family holidy
We're just home from a great family holiday at the lopesan baobab resort- overwhelmingly more positives than negatives... Loved the cleanliness; food quality; care/attentiveness of staff- negatives- wifi-a 5 star resort should have free wifi in all areas; our 4 and 5 year olds tried kids club and were disappointed that all that was offered was 2 hours of colouring in. As there are a lot of kids from very small babies to teenagers, we felt that it might be an idea to have a larger children's pool area and perhaps a play park would be a welcome idea.More
Top holiday resort
Baobab at peak season maintained excellent family service, great facilities and was just fantastic. Spacious and clean rooms and common areas. Perfect pools for all ages - lazy river the favourite. Food was varied and plentiful. Staff focussed and friendly. Our party of 4 really enjoyed it all. Entertainment was classic summer holidays. Thanks for a great holiday.More
