Only the 3rd largest island in the Canary Island archipelago, Gran Canaria may just sound like any other holiday destination, but it accounts for almost half the population – and its not hard to see why! Known as a ‘continent in miniature,’ the dramatic range in terrain makes this island a destination like no other, and every experience unique. From impenetrable mountain ranges to leafy green forests and onto barren deserts, it’s hard to believe this island is only 1,560 km² in size!
It is the ideal location for activity holidays with room for biking, road cycling, hiking and water sports being some of the things you can try during your stay on the island.. but you’re going to need somewhere to relax, right!?
Luxury Gran Canaria Hotel – make your holiday special!
Check out this unbelievable 5* Hotel I found on Trivago for only £79 per person per night.. sound like a lot? Wait ’til you see what its got to offer and the pictures are on a different level!
The Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor out of 1,756 reviews + Certificate of Excellence) offers luxury accommodation all year round – it is set within the 36-Hole Salobre Golf Course, just 15 minutes’ drive from Maspalomas. This fabulous hotel offers 6 outdoor swimming pools to choose from, a spa with heated pool, Hammam, a range of saunas, gym and a number of beauty and relaxation treatments, and my total favourite.. a roof terrace with pool!The Sheraton Gran Canaria Salobre Golf Resort has 3 restaurants and 3 stylish bars, open seasonally. My personal favourite is the Perenquén Restaurant, which serves a tapas menu designed by a Michelin-starred chef.. I know, very fancy ;-)
Your room will include a private terrace with views of the mountains or golf course, and include a plasma screen TV, bathrobes and free safe to use.I have included a screenshot of some example flights from London to Gran Canaria airport – with prices starting from £72 return, it’d be rude not to spend a little extra on this fabulous one-of-a-kind hotel! You don’t have to fly from London though, you can find flights from your favourite airport through my Flights Fare Finder.
