If you are looking for 5-star hotels in Gran Canaria, here we are going to tell you which are, from our point of view, the best. It is true that unlike other Canary Islands, in Gran Canaria we do not have such a wide 5-star hotel offer. In any case, there are very good hotels in this category and we will mention them below. Let’s go!
5-star hotels in Gran Canaria
The best 5-star hotels in Gran Canaria are in the south, like practically all the hotels on the island. In this case, the ones that we are going to tell you about are all located in Maspalomas, Playa del Inglés and Salobre areas, with the exception of the hotels Suites 1478 and Santa Catalina, both in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. On the other hand, except for the Grand Hotel Residencia, we can say that there are no luxury hotels in Gran Canaria. However, luckily we have the island that it is. Here is our list of the best 5-star hotels on the island!
5-star hotels in Gran Canaria: south of the island
In the Maspalomas area we have a wide range of five-star hotels. The problem is that they are VERY big, they are resorts. Therefore, here the personalized service does not fit. The facilities may be fine, but we are talking about mass hotels where you are one more. Anyway, we can understand that this does not matter to you, so we are going to give you all the options that we know.
1. Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia. One of the best holiday resorts in Gran Canaria
One of the best places to stay in Gran Canaria is undoubtedly the Grand Hotel Residencia. We have been fortunate enough to stay and everything here are details, personalized customer service and amenities. It is an adults only hotel, so it is also one of the best quiet resorts in Gran Canaria. Its cuisine is exquisite and the rooms enormous. It is a hotel for rest and relax. The architecture of the establishment is spectacular. A small town of little houses with their balconies and gardens. Of course, prepare the wallet because it is the most expensive hotel in Gran Canaria!
2. Hotel Faro, a Lopesan Collection Hotel 5*. Top resorts Gran Canaria
This establishment was renovated in 2020 and is characterized by its unique location on the beachfront of Maspalomas. It is as if you were on a boat sailing, a true wonder. The hotel is not very big, that is why they can give you a good service.
3. Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity 5*. One of the best resorts in Gran Canaria for golfers
This 5-star hotel in Gran Canaria is also in a unique location in the Salobre Golf private urbanization. Only hotel guests, private villas and apartments and golf course players from Salobre can access here. We can say that the Salobre hotel is one of the best resorts in Gran Canaria for golfers, since it has a golf shop, golf classes and offers buggies to guests to move around the area. However, we have stayed here and it is ideal to disconnect and eat well.
4. Bohemia Suites & Spa, five star hotels in Gran Canaria
The Bohemia Suites & Spa hotel stands out for its high commitment to restaurant and cocktail services. Equally, it is a fairly modern and technological hotel. It offers tablets to its guests to contact the reception, room service, etc. We were surprised by their restaurant or, better said, Around the table experience. The only problem is that it is located in a very touristy area, in Playa del Inglés beach.
5. Lopesan Villa del Conde 5*, top resorts in Gran Canaria
We also know this hotel of Meloneras as we have stayed here. It is located in one of the best place to holiday in Gran Canaria. It is an establishment that completely imitates a typical Canarian town with its Church, town square, restaurants, small shops and houses. In the church is where the reception and bar-disco are located imitates. It is the Church of San Sebastián de Agüimes.
6. RIU Palace Maspalomas, all inclusive 5 star Gran Canaria
If you are looking for the best all inclusive 5 star in Gran Canaria, the RIU Palace Maspalomas has to be in your options. However, take in mind that if you are traveling with kids, this is a hotel for adults only. As you can see, the location with Maspalomas views is unique.
5-star hotels in Gran Canaria: Las Palmas city
The hotel offer in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is currently experiencing a good moment with numerous openings, both for hotel renovations and new construction. In this sense, regarding premium offer, we recommend two hotels in Las Palmas. One in Vegueta as we said at the beginning and another in the residential area of Ciudad Jardín.
7. Suites 1478, Vegueta
We have also stayed at this emblematic hotel. It is an old Canarian house completely renovated. It still preserves its interior patio, carpentry on its Canarian balconies, stonework from Arucas and, best of all, full of works of art of all kinds. The rooms are super spacious and have their own living room and / or terrace. In addition, they have a very strong commitment to the customer service.
8. Santa Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel 5*GL, nicest resorts in Gran Canaria
This 5-star hotel in Las Palmas is an emblem for the city, as it is one of the oldest hotels in the Canary Islands that is still open. Keep in mind that it has been in operation since 1890, until 2019 that it closed its doors for a complete reform. This hotel has the prestige of having housed a lot of relevant personalities such as the Princes of Asturias, the Spanish Royal Family, Mr. José María Aznar, Mr. Felipe González, Prince Charles from England, Agatha Christie, Sir Winston Churchill, etc. So that, this is one of the nicest resorts in Gran Canaria, although it is in the capital city.
