Family Suites

  • A luxury hotel with a focus on catering to the whole family, not just adults
  • Situated atop the rugged and rocky coastline, with stunning views across the Atlantic
  • Extensive sports facilities, including tennis courts, and partnerships with local golf courses
  • Four restaurants to choose from, offering international buffet cuisine as well as more intimate à la carte restaurants

The Roca Nivaría Gran Hotel knows that luxury is not exclusive to adults and has chosen to make thoughtful additions to include the whole family including special dining areas, and bespoke activities and kids’ clubs. And while the little ones are being looked after, you can unwind in the luxurious spa suite, hopping from sauna to steam room to pool and back.

The hotel décor makes a tasteful nod to colonial styling, with understated furnishings and en suite bathrooms with twin sinks and separate showers and bathtubs. Almost every one of the rooms offers breath taking views of the Atlantic Ocean, where you can watch the sun disappear below the horizon from the privacy of your own balcony.

The grounds of the hotel are lush with tropical palm trees that sway gently in the breeze and offer shade to poolside sunbathers. Outdoor living is made the most of in all respects, with sweeping, open air restaurant terraces, and an incredible multi-facility sports centre where you can play tennis and beach volleyball, and practise your putting before heading to one of the nearby golf courses where you will benefit from guest discounts. And after a hard day’s work, you can retire to the luxurious spa to unwind and soothe aching muscles as you watch the sun go down.

Hotel child prices apply to ages 2–12 years. Specially modified rooms for people with reduced mobility and interconnecting rooms are available on request.
