5 Luxury Hotels in La Isla Gran Canaria

La Isla Gran Canaria hotels


The Canary Islands are a volcanic archipelago off the African west coast that is renowned for its stunning scenery and white sand beaches. Europeans have always favored these Spanish isles as a top vacation spot. The rough, untamed coastline of the Canary Islands, which is three hours of flying away from mainland Spain, has undergone a considerable amount of development over time. But these days, affluent vacationers are more drawn to the lavish beach resorts offered on lush islands like Gran Canaria.

Read on to discover some of the best luxury hotels that the Spanish Canary Islands has to offer.


The Royal Hideaway Hotel of Santa Catalina

It’s easy to say that the Santa Catalina, a magnificent fusion of traditional design and contemporary refinements, is the most well-known opulent hotel in Gran Canaria. Santa Catalina immediately distinguishes itself with its twin domes and elegant 19th-century landmark architecture, flanked by immaculately maintained gardens with fountains, and palm trees, complete with a Spanish courtyard. The 204 elite rooms’ amenities include marble flooring, extra-large freestanding tubs, Rituals toiletries, and mirror TVs with lavish gold frames. You’ll feel like Spanish royalty in no time.


Hotel Cristina las Palmas

Hotel Cristina las Palmas is quite well situated on Playa de Las Canteras, a broad C-shaped stretch of beach with warm, golden sands and crystal-clear waters. Most of its over 300 guest rooms come with their own terrace, and you’re sure to enjoy the nearby mountains and ocean views. There are many things to do in the hotel: you can lounge or suntan on the rooftop patio with a sundeck, dip in the heated pool to relax your muscles or head to the pool bar for a refreshing beverage. The party starts in the morning thanks to the complimentary breakfast served with sparkling champagne.


H10 Playa Meloneras Palace

This exquisite Gaudi-inspired all-inclusive resort is well known for its breathtaking interior, seaside vistas, and a long list of amenities. The resort’s north end is highlighted by the apparently infinite freeform pool, while its south end incorporates an infinity pool with views of Playa de Meloneras, which can be reached in 10 minutes on foot. Seven dining establishments and bars offer virtually endless options for meals and drinks, including a kid-friendly chocolate fountain at the restaurant buffet, a well-regarded bistro, and three late-night pubs showcasing live piano and sax performances.


Gold by Marina

Despite being located in the center of Playa del Inglés, the glistening Gold by Marina appears as if it belongs on Miami’s South Beach. From the chic suites that are inspired by ocean liners to the contemporary restaurant, the art deco interior holds its own against the sleek exterior. It’s an adults-only hotel, perfect for a romantic getaway for scenery-loving couples or friend groups aching for a fashionable stay in Gran Canaria.


Radisson Blu Resort & Spa in Gran Canaria

On the southern tip of the island, between two beaches, is where you’ll find the Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria. It is the best position to take advantage of everything that the Spanish island has to offer because of its outstanding coastal location, near the rugged highlands and shores.

The 422-room Radisson Blu enclave has an abundance of on-site first-class amenities that make it perfect for vacationing families. Spend the day trying out its many options: three swimming pools, three restaurants, tennis courts, a rock-climbing wall, and a garden.

With the flagship rooftop restaurant being featured in the Michelin guide, the on-site restaurants at this resort bring you exquisite cuisine at its finest. Get a reservation at 222SW Bar & Grill for a special dining experience. The hotel’s trademark breakfast buffet is served in La Canaria, making it the best spot to start the day. Come back to this restaurant for a leisurely dinner. If relaxing by the pool is more your style, our Pool Bar offers a selection of food and beverages so you need not leave the pool area to satisfy your appetite.
