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 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.

Amazing holiday

This hotel deserves it's excellent reviews. Rooms were clean, well maintained we had room 2105 which faced out the front of the hotel but we had a huge balcony and the sun from 1pm till down. Location was great a few high end shops,casino and beach bars. We walked to playa del ingles along the beach and sand dunes about an hour but well worth it. We visited the water park and zoo but didn't pay Thomson prices we got a taxi which was cheap and payed 2 for 1 tickets on entry. The food is vast,fresh and managed to eat something different every night. We sat outside for lunch as had better ambiance. Pools are clean and warm there is 9 to choose from! some with a fake beach. Including the lazy river which was our favourite. No need to reserve a bed as long as you are at pools by about 11. If people put towels down before 9 you get a snotty letter from the management on the your sunbed. The grounds are very well kept with signs telling you what trees they are. Service excellent. My only gripes would be there are lots of children! Who knows what it would be like in holidays and the walls are very thin so we got woken up at 7 by screaming children. And the entertainment really isn't great. But All in all one of the best hotels I've stayed in when abroad.More

Top hotel

Recently returned from a two week fabulous holiday. Great clean pools, friendly staff, good food and so much to do. Tom the sports guy was excellent and was really enthusiastic. The gym is well stocked and clean. Wifi is not the best but the option of renting a box is available. Completely recommend this hotel. More

My fiancé and I stayed in the hotel for one week. Deserves every star of its 5 star rating! Loved the African theme, every detail was covered. I looked for things to criticise and genuinely could not find anything. Would highly recommend for anyone wanting a 5 star treatment. More

Adam M,

We have enjoyed our stay very much !

The hotel is very nice and the staff is making you feel like a king/queen. The food quality is good although after a while it starts to look and taste a bit the same. Activities enough for kids and adults so you wont get bored! In the area are a lot of shops and restourants and the taxis are based very close by should you decide to head out. The rooms were very good and we had a nice balkon with nice vieuw. In short we where most satisfied, in fact on of the best hotels we have seen thus far ! Grtz More
