Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso and Hotel

If breath-taking views, celebrity-style luxury and close proximity to incredible beaches are high on your holiday priority list, then the Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso and Hotel is the place for you.

Looking out over the Atlantic ocean, from its jaw-droppingly unique clifftop location, the hotel is the last word in chic décor, high-end facilities and convenient placement, with the Puerto Rico and Amadores beaches just 10 minutes away. That’s if you can leave the two pools, one with an infinity edge, and the on-site Thalasso spa behind. The restaurant serves a variety of international and classic dishes and the poolside bar offers snacks during the day, so there’s little reason to ever venture off complex.

Overview of Puerto Rico

If you haven’t dreamed of holidays to Gran Canaria, you’re in the minority! A destination that enjoys evergreen popularity thanks to incredible weather all year round and a welcoming attitude to tourists, it has many different regions to explore.

Puerto Rico, not to be confused with the Caribbean island of the same name, is found on the south coast and centres around beachfront activities, offering a nice variation from days spent at the Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso and Hotel. From boat trips to seafront eating, water sports and cocktails with sea views, everything is found close to the coast. The beaches are to die for, with Blue-Flag awards in place to prove it, and you can choose between quiet and calm or lively and fun for your sunbathing sessions.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

Days on the sand are just one reason why holidaymakers love Puerto Rico. The Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso and Hotel is another, as it is so perfectly positioned to act as a base of operations for wider exploration of the area, which is a hotbed of activity, once the sun goes down. Discos, bars and cocktail lounges offer up a variety of ways to see in the early hours, but be sure to leave yourself some energy for shopping at the two huge plazas and, if you have kids in tow, splashing down at the local waterpark.

Water sports are big news in Puerto Rico, so whether you’re a seasoned jet skier or just fancy trying something new, you’ll be able to have a go, while working up an appetite for some tasty local delicacies.

Family-friendly, fun and offering the perfect balance of beaches and activities, Puerto Rico is a shining example of why Gran Canaria is a firm favourite in the holiday destination stakes.

Resort Summary

The two main beaches in Puerto Rico are pretty unique, and we aren’t just saying that – both are man-made, which means both had their sands shipped in from foreign locations. The tranquil Amadores’ shores came from the Caribbean, while the golden grains of the bustling Puerto Rico Beach came directly from the Sahara, making that first squish of sand between your toes that much more exotic.

A Blue Flag award-winning beach for its superior water quality and attention to environmental preservation, the Amadores is loud-music free, ball-game free stretch of sand, whose calm bay is ringed by a wall of rocks that keep the waves tempered. At the Puerto Rico Beach, relaxation-ready holidaygoers can rent sunbeds and stretch out underneath the Spanish sun while children splash in the lightly lapping water.
