The jaw-dropping architecture and design embraces the island’s African influence, from natural colours and materials, to meandering walkways, pools and waterfalls. The reception is a fully-fledged jungle, with a soaring 21-metre African lodge housing the hotel’s buffets and bars. It’s full-on paradise for adventurous kids; every walk from your room to the pool is like a safari, and there’s a brilliant line-up of sports and activities. The icing on the cake comes courtesy of the huge lagoon pool, complete with lazy river.

About the location

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 cafes 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.

  • 10 minutes walk to the nearest beach - Playa del Faro
  • 22 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket/shop
  • Lopesan Baobab Resort is located within the town
