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.

Four star rather than Five star Hotel

Just returned from the Lopesan Baobab. This hotel is very large and you can easily lose your way around it. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the Lopesan Costa Meloneras. A nice room with a large walk in shower. The first time I used the hairdryer I knocked the light socket and it fell off the wall. The room was nice and quiet though and we could not hear any noise whatsoever. If you are on half board there are 2 buffet restaurants which you can use. If you like a lot of light whilst eating you will need to ask for a table with tidy lighting as some of the tables are very dark. There is not much lighting in a lot of the corridors either. Most of the food was ok. One evening my husband had sea bass which was freshly cooked only to bite into it for it to be raw, rubbery and no taste. The pool areas are well maintained but most of sunbeds around most of the pools were taken by 8.15 am even though there are notices around the hotel not to reserve sun beds but you can usually get one at the pool furthest away from the main part of the hotel. Reception staff were helpful. Do check your bill on checkout though as we were charged for a golf package which did not belong to us. Would we go back to this hotel? No, I think you better service at the Riu chain of hotels which I have stayed at many a time but thought we would have a change this time and try Lopesan.More

A little bit of paradise in Gran Canaria

Just returned last night (24 nov ) from a week long stay at this superb hotel the staff are all first rate ,everyone of them cheerful and always happy to assist in anyway they can ,the grounds and pools are beautiful and are kept immaculate by the hard working staff ,it is the best pool area and grounds I have ever encountered ,the lazy river was our favourite as there are lots of little nooks and crannies where you can sunbathe away from others ,it is very peaceful and as you walk around there is always a new sight to see ,we where still discovering thing on our last day that we hadn't seen before , we have just one or two minor concerns that I hope management take note of 1/ A full length mirror on one of the wardrobe doors would be good ,a would have liked to check my full appearance before going out 2/ If you are shorter than 5ft 6ins you may have trouble reaching your clothes as the wardrobe rail is so high some rooms have pull down rails ,ours didn't so I had to climb on a chair eveytime I wanted to get dressed 3/ Beware of the wet room floor we asked for a non slip mat 4/ In a 5 star hotel you should expect more TV channels than just sky news , there are lots in every other language but not English 5/ A kettle should be standered in all rooms not just up grades All these points are just minor and did not distract from loving this hotel ,we're already looking to book again for next yearMore

stage at Gran Canaria

We arrived at this beautiful hotel and were really overwelmend! It is corrageaus. The lobby and the room were very satisfied. The garden is marvelous. The hotel is a liitle bit away from the beach, but reacheable in five minutes walk. If you want to go shopping no problem right around the corner. The food was excellent. For every one something. We were surprised how many young couples with little children were guests. But we imagine, that children are very welcome. It was a really pleasant stage and we only can recommend this hotel the warmest! More


Faultless in Gran Canaria

A week spent at the Baobab Resort, Maspalomas, proved to be a memorable experience. This resort hotel is superb in all respects. Try it for yourself and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. One point picked up by a previous reviewer concerns smoking in the grounds and near the dining rooms. This can be aggravating and I would suggest that smoking areas should be considerably restricted and well-signed!More

I had a fantastic stay in this hotel, being a disabled I have found that the hotel catered to my needs, although I wish incould remember the woman who was training on receptions name I cant. But if you are reading this its Sam and Bob:) my room was beautiful and very much worth £2200 for the week for 2 people I would 100% return. Very relaxing ! More
