Luxury Playa Amadores Holidays

A rising star

Playa Amadores

An up-and-comer among Gran Canaria's beach resorts, little Playa Amadores is all about one thing: the beach. One of the best on the island, this pristine stretch of coast descends into a calm Atlantic, making it safe for little ones to swim and paddle.

There's plenty of space to settle down for the day on the powdery white sand, with a cluster of waterfront restaurants for lunch and drinks, including a fantastic pizzeria and grill serving up some of the freshest fish around. In the evenings, the vibe is low-key and kid-friendly.

Less than 10 minutes' drive away (there's also a regular bus) is buzzing Puerto Rico, where you'll find the bulk of the area's entertainment, including upbeat Irish pubs and laid-back lounge bars.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Gran Canaria is approximately 4 hours 15 minutes. 

Transfer Time

Transfer time from Las Palmas airport to Playa Amadores is approximately 40 minutes.

When to go

Summers are long, hot and dry in Gran Canaria, keeping at a steady mid-20s and climbing beyond 30°C in July and August. The Canaries are a good destination for winter sun, too – even winter and the shoulder seasons stay warm and sunny, with averages hovering around 18°C.

Visa Information

Currently visas are not required for UK citizens travelling to Spain.


Restaurant bills include a service charge by law in Spain, so whether you choose to tip further is up to you. If you enjoyed the meal and service, it is customary to leave 5-10%. Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Spain is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
