Hotels in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Once again Las Palmas de Gran Canaria has regained prominence as a tourist destination within the island of Gran Canaria. And we say it has become because back in the 70s and 80s the area of Las Canteras beach was a claim for British and Nordic tourism. The following decades mass tourism was established in the south of Gran Canaria. This is where the largest tourist areas on the island are concentrated today.
However, this does not mean that more and more people are traveling to Gran Canaria to visit Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and enjoy its gastronomy, culture, urban beaches, old town and authenticity. In the following lines, we will list the hotels that we recommend in the city.
