Riu Palace Oasis

At the Riu Palace Oasis, you’ll find a trio of pools hugged by a frame of palm trees. Plus, there’s direct access to Maspalomas Beach through the gardens. If you need a drink, you’ll find a day-to-night cocktail bar that mixes mojitos nearby.

At mealtimes, you’ll have a choice between the buffet restaurant and two a la carte places. After dark, live music and and performers will keep you entertained. For something a little more low key, there’s a poolside cocktail bar where you can watch the world go by and a late-night lounge.

Overview of Maspalomas

On the southern edge of Gran Canaria, Maspalomas is the calmer and older sister of the flashy Playa del Ingles.

If you’re looking for a holiday to Gran Canaria where you can chill out and relax in the sun but still have plenty to do, Maspalomas is the place to be.

You have sand and sunshine in spades here, and life is lived on the beach. But, you’ll also have great shopping, impressive water parks and exciting golf courses. A stay at the Riu Palace Oasis means that there’s something for everyone nearby.

Things to do in Maspalomas

If you want the very best of Maspalomas, it’s incredibly hard to beat the location of the Riu Palace Oasis.

Leave the hotel and turn right, and you’re on Meloneras promenade. Here, you can stroll into the resort centre or stop in one of the many bars and restaurants. If, instead, you turn left out of the gate, you’re on golden sands. If this beach doesn’t take your fancy, try El Faro and Maspalomas sand dunes, close by.

For a lively evening of entertainment and dancing, head to Playa del Ingles, a 10-minute taxi journey away.

From the stunning beaches to the Sahara-esque dunes, Maspalomas promises a holiday when all your troubles will feel a million miles away.
