    Our opinion

    An elegant 5-star hotel with excellent standards of hospitality, comfort and luxury.

    Hotel description

    In the seaside resort of Maspalomas in southern Gran Canaria, Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia offers unrivalled hospitality, earnng it the highest recognition as a five star GL hotel. With the Dunes of Maspalomas close by and within walking distance of the vast beach where the dunes meet the sea, the location is brilliant for couples looking to unwind and enjoy the landscape. The hotel is just set back from the shoreline, where its remarkable architecture languishes in stunning surrounds, characterised by a distinct Spanish-colonial style. Built around the centrepiece of a beautifully landscaped pool area with a freeform saltwater swimming pool, the resort buildings comprise numerous two-storey villas. With gently-sloped terracotta roofing and balconies adorned with vibrant flower blossom, such architecture is overshadowed by exotic palm trees. This area is reminiscent of an oasis within the desert-like environment of the dunes nearby. The interior design at Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia is styled by French architect Alberto Pinto and shows a tasteful, Spanish theme that is at once refined and characterful. This continues into the 94 guestroom and suites, which manage a balance between home-style comfort and exuberant luxury. As the only resort on Gran Canaria that’s a member of the Leading Hotels of the World group, Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia owes this success to the outstanding level of service and luxury on offer. Nowhere is this seen more than in the dining service. The restaurant, split between an elegant dining room and an outdoor terrace with fabulous dune and mountain views, serves traditional specialities and international dishes prepared by prestigious chefs. On two nights a week a barbeque buffet makes the most of fresh meats and seafood, while a cross-dining experience means you can dine at nearby sister hotel Seaside Palm Beach. By day there is also a pool bar serving fresh tapas, while the sophisticated Piano Bar offers beverages in a setting that recalls the style of a bygone era. Pastime facilities range from various activities such as golf and tennis, while true serenity can be achieved in the well-equipped Wellness and Spa Centre.
