We can say that the Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity is one of the best five star hotels in Gran Canaria. You should know that for the islanders an escape to the south of the island is very frequent. Since in the north of Gran Canaria the weather is not that nice. Especially in summer when it is almost always cloudy. Thus, some weekends we organize one or two nights of disconnection in an environment far from our routines. The Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity is one of the options we know and we will tell you everything in the following lines.
Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity
It is located in Salobre Golf, a private urbanization only for guests and villa owners. So it is in a secure environment and guarded 24 hours. Although it is far from the sea and other services, we could say that it is a hotel recommended for adventurers or localguiders. Since we understand that you will always rent a car to discover the island. In addition, parking at this hotel is free and indoor. Despite being a large hotel with more than 300 rooms, it has several hidden corners where you can even be alone.
Services and facilities
As we said, the Salobre Golf Hotel exceeds all the requirements to be one of the best five star hotels in Gran Canaria. It consists of spectacular and renovated facilities. Also, with its own golf course a few steps away. In the same way, the architecture of the hotel and its decoration is very sophisticated.
Within its common areas, we highlight its pool and Sunset bar at the top. Here you can enjoy a spectacular sunset, pool bar and Balinese beds.
In the same way, its king size beds and soundproofed rooms allow you an excellent rest. Something very basic during holidays, but that many hoteliers forget. Equally, the service and attention of its staff surprised us. Why? Well, because not in all the hotels the staff greets you and smiles in each one of their departments. Something very important to transfer that serenity to the guests. In addition, we remember how at dinner we were consulted if everything had been fine during our stay. As well as if there was any suggestion or complaint from our point of view. They would like to know it in order to improve.
The hotel has its own wellness center called Be Aloe. We did not try it, but it offers different types of treatments and circuits in a private space.
If you do not like to drive, the hotel has a free bus that brings you to the Maspalomas beach. Here the hotel has a private space with towels, lockers and changing rooms. We also recommend this option even if you have a car, since parking near the beach is impossible.
Breakfast and dinner buffet style at Sens Restaurant
Moreover, we can not fail to mention the quality of its buffets. We stayed in half board, so we could try the breakfast and dinner. The buffet itself has different show cooking stations, as well as dining rooms. Therefore, the sensation of saturation is not felt at any time.
- Breakfast: the breakfast buffet is one of the most complete we have seen so far. Highlight the station of natural juices, crepes and eggs. Concerning juices, you chose the natural ingredients to make it how you want: ginger, celery, spinach, pineapple, papaya, banana, watermelon, beetroot … Concerning eggs and crepes it is similar, but regarding the fruit… we fell in love . Also the station of different breads, sausages, hot and sweet dishes is quite wide and varied.
- Dinner: Every day the dinner is thematic and we had the chance to try the Asian and the Mediterranean. We are undoubtedly with the Asian with woks of the world, sushi and sashimi, carpaccios, prawn bread, rolls, duck … very yummy! We emphasize that dinner drinks were somewhat expensive, especially water at 5 euros per bottle. On the other hand, we really liked that they introduced local products such as chorizo of Teror, cheeses, etc. into the buffet offer.
Club Lounge The S Club
If you want to be delighted by surprising dishes, we recommend you the Club Lounge The S Club. They are open for lunch and dinner. The place is very beautiful day and night, decorated with very good taste. In the interior it has a bar where you will find yourself in the living room of your home. Very cozy. We recommend the avocado tartare and the tuna with wakame and sesame seaweed.
Concerning the desserts, you can not miss their apple cake with aloe ice-cream. It is very tasty! The price per person is between € 35 – € 45. It will depend on if you order wine or not.
The hotel has other a la carte restaurants: the Sidecar and La Palmera pool bar. La Palmera is for lunches and Sidecar for dinners. We could not try any of the two, but we know in good faith that both give a first class service and gastronomic offer.
Salobre Golf & Golf Academy
It can be said that the Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity is focused on golf players. Although also as we said is ideal for rest and for adventurers like you and us. The hotel is a short walk from the Salobre golf courses. In the same entrance of the hotel you can take your buggy and leave in the direction of the course.
On the other hand, if you would like to learn to play golf or improve your technique, the hotel has a teacher with a PGA (Professional Golf Association) qualification. We tried an initiation class, although it is recommended at least 5 sessions if you have never played. The price for 1 session of 1 hour is 60 euros per person.
On the other hand, if you are a golfer or you are getting started in this sport, you may be interested to know that your golf club is made to measure here. And, in addition, they have one of the most complete workshops in Spain. They also have TrackMan services to measure the trajectory of the strokes.
