Grand Hotel Residencia, Gran Canaria

Surrounded by the palm oasis of Maspalomas, the Spanish colonial-style Grand Hotel Residencia is the only hotel on Gran Canaria recommended by ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’. Furthermore, its exemplary levels of service and dedication to satisfying your every whim – not to mention its extensive list of amenities and excellent facilities – has earned the hotel no less than five stars.

But there’s more. The highest possible classification award for a hotel in the Canary Islands is the prestigious Gran Lujo. The Grand Hotel Residencia is Gran Canaria’s sole recipient of a Gran Lujo – effectively giving it a sixth star.

Sipping cocktails beside the double curved swimming pool, lazing beneath the shade of a gently whispering palm, or indulging in a magnificent dinner…you’ll understand why.
