Take a look at the best luxury hotels in Maspalomas.

The 94 guest rooms have wonderful Spanish Colonial decor, private balconies or terraces, air-conditioning, and free Wi-Fi. The restaurant serves free breakfast buffets and (charged) four-course dinners, and the Pool Bar serves snacks, tapas, and a selection of cakes during the afternoon. There's also a Piano Bar for pre- and post-dinner drinks to the accompaniment of live music. There are plenty of opportunities for couples to relax or keep busy with a large outdoor swimming pool, on-site fitness center and spa, and free access to facilities at a neighboring resort. Golf lovers may want to also consider the Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort, situated between two 18-hole golf courses.
The Hotel Riu Palace Meloneras Resort is a 515-room luxury escape set amid vast gardens that's within walking distance of the buzzing waterfront along El Faro Beach. Contemporary rooms are chic and sleek in muted gray and lilac tones, with private balconies and terraces, some of which have ocean views. The hotel has five swimming pools, including two freshwater infinity pools and a children’s pool, a whirlpool, solarium, and a fitness center. All rates are half-board and include dinner and breakfast, the latter of which features health-conscious options and cava. Travelers seeking a hotel with direct beach access might want to compare rates with the Ifa Faro Hotel.
The 313-room Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort is a quiet luxury property that caters to golfers and couples. In addition to two scenic 18-hole golf courses, this property also has seven pools, four restaurants, a spa, and a fitness center with group classes. Rooms are have understated contemporary style, and great amenities such as free Wi-Fi, Sheraton’s signature mattresses, furnished balconies, and deep soaking tubs with separate showers. The hotel is nestled on a mountainside a 15-minute drive from the nearest town, but there is free shuttle service to a beach club on beautiful Maspalomas Beach, complete with a plunge pool and services.
The upscale H10 Playa Meloneras Palace is located on the southern tip of Gran Canaria Island. The hotel has million-dollar ocean views, distinctive architecture, and sits just a 10 minute walk from the beach. The 373 simply decorated, Mediterranean-style rooms have private balconies, with either garden or sea views. A free hot and cold buffet-style breakfast is served daily in one of the hotel's three restaurants, and bars include the late-night Tirajana Disco Bar with evening entertainment. Travelers seeking an on-site golf course may want to consider the Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort, which offers many similar features and comparable rates.
The Seaside Palm Beach is an upsacle property with well-tended, palm-tree-lined gardens that's a three-minute walk from Maspalomas Beach. The 328 bright, retro-style rooms are elegant and come with free Wi-Fi -- the priciest rooms have coffeemakers, but all lack safes, and some bathrooms are rather small. The exceptional buffet breakfast is included in room rates and three restaurants (with dress codes) serve delicious local and international meals, including barbecues and buffets (all-inclusive is available). Extensive facilities feature numerous pools, tennis courts, gym, and spa, plus perks like free parking and discounts at nearby golf courses. This is one of the area’s priciest stays -- the more secluded Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort has considerably lower rates and a free shuttle to the beach.
Bright and breezy, minimalist and mod, the Riu ClubHotelGran Canaria is an all-inclusive seafront property in Meloneras. The 639 contemporary rooms have stylish decor, balconies or terraces, and plenty of modern comforts. A quartet of restaurants and three bars include Las Dunas, which has live cooking stations. With five swimming pools and a spa, there are plenty of chances to relax, while a gym and kid-friendly features like a game room and playground keep everyone active. There is no swimmable beach on site, but several can be reached in five to 15 minutes on foot. The H10 Playa Meloneras Palace will have lower rates, but it lacks the Riu ClubHotel's style.
