Staying at a hotel in Maspalomas means you're right at the front lines of some of the area's best activities. Ridges of sand dunes rise in the distance while the beach unfolds only a short walk or free shuttle ride away. But just because you're in the heart of town doesn't mean you sacrifice a peaceful atmosphere – stunning hotel courtyards and spacious rooms act as serene getaways from the bustling downtown streets winding just outside, with sleek decor and swimming pools aplenty.
Just across the street from the Maspalomas Golf Course and sweeping sand dunes, this laidback, upscale hotel has a prime location for taking advantage of all Maspalomas has to offer. Plus, it's only a short walk to the Maspalomas beach and the Playa del Ingles, where a host of bars, shops and restaurants await.
Connected to the Tabaiba Princess, the Maspalomas Princess is on a slightly smaller scale, size-wise, but with ample luxury giving it Platinum status. With palm trees lining the outdoor terraces, lounging beside the pool can sometimes make you feel more like you're in a tropical garden than a hotel.
Free bus rides from this hotel to Maspalomas beach make lounging on nearby shores easy. Made up of quaint bungalows, you'll find plenty of space for whole families at this resort, with shady gardens and rows of comfortable sunbeds – you'll never want to leave!
The warm colour schemes reflect the Canary Islands' gorgeous climate and make it stand out among its whitewashed neighbours. The first thing you'll think when you step into the lobby is retro, with its bold patterns and sharp lines, but you'll soon know how amazing this hotel is once you see how close the beach is.
Find your zen space at this boutique complex, whose multi-coloured bungalows are steeped in stunning Spanish architecture. It provides a tranquil atmosphere in an otherwise bustling area. Holidaygoers can have a whack at 18 holes in the neighbouring Maspalomas Golf Course or recline on a readily available sunbed.
Go All Inclusive at this resort hotel or catch the free bus to the beach and choose from one of the town's restaurants specialising in Canarian delights. Perfect for families, the Dunas Mirador isn't far from the Aqualand Maspalomas waterpark and camel-riding adventures in the Sahara-like dunes.
You'll enjoy feeling the salty air wafting around this hotel, mostly because the beach is quite literally on the horizon. With modern decor and a whitewashed exterior, the Riu Palace is the picture of luxury, whose central location is just beside the Paseo Costa Canaria coastal path, the Maspalomas sand dunes and some of Gran Canaria's most dazzling beaches.
Just steps from the beach, and practically in the shadow of the historic Faro de Maspalomas lighthouse, this family-friendly hotel offers All Inclusive packages and spacious rooms with views of lush gardens or sweeping Atlantic Ocean landscapes.
