Lopesan Baobab Resort

Just behind the promenade in Meloneras and five minutes from the iconic Maspalomas lighthouse, the impressive Lopesan Baobab Resort features seven pools set against palm-fringed gardens, with a lake boasting two artificial beaches, a lazy river and even caves with rocks and waterfalls. The complex has a cool African vibe, with a thatched, safari-style lodge serving food and drinks while you bask in the sun. Among the selection of rooms on offer, there’s a ‘swim-up’ room, complete with plunge pool. The hotel features a great selection of bars and restaurants, such as the Pili Pili grill restaurant, African a la carte restaurant and a sports bar. If you fancy indulging in some rest and relaxation, you’ll love the beauty salon, especially if you know the little ones are in the mini club, letting off steam and making new friends.
