Luxury Playa Meloneras Holidays

A quiet corner

Playa Meloneras

Occupying a peaceful corner of Maspalomas, Playa Meloneras' mix of elegant hotels and access to the area's best beaches has made it a new favourite hot spot in Gran Canaria.

Playa Meloneras' little beach is classically Canarian, with calm, clear water that's perfect for a swim. The upmarket seafront promenade is the heart of the resort, headlining the best dining picks and a few relaxed beachfront cafés for sitting out with a cold San Miguel. Look out for some of the more traditional restaurants for a more authentic experience – the list includes a locally run Spanish restaurant serving huge pans of seafood paella.

Playa Meloneras is a stone's throw from Maspalomas. Its famous rolling sand dunes are a 15-minute walk along the coast.

Playa Meloneras is ideal for families and couples that like a more lively area with bars and restaurants, plus a casino for the evening.

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

Tipping

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.
