Seaside Palm Beach Hotel 

A retro family-friendly resort

This pretty resort at the heart of centuries-old palm groves has a laid-back and unique 1970s retro style.

Just a stone’s throw from the popular Maspalomas sand dunes, this charming hotel lies in palm groves by a beautiful nature reserve overlooking a pretty stretch of beach. This is the first Design Hotel™ in the Canary Islands, with outstanding service and a quirky retro design with bold, patterned and colourful interiors. Head to the adults-only pool and spa, or enjoy yoga and t’ai chi in the gardens. Little ones have a separate area plus a kids’ pool and can enjoy games and activities at Pepe’s Club.

Choose from three gourmet restaurants and two chic bars; the laid-back Main Restaurant has a great range of international cuisine, and serves a wonderful breakfast buffet on its terrace with freshly squeezed exotic juices, eggs cooked to order, a selection of cheeses and meats, and freshly baked bread. In the evening the restaurant has an à la carte menu four nights a week, and themed buffets and popular barbecue nights three nights a week. For a taste of local cuisine, the tapas and locally sourced produce at La Bodega are fantastic. Esencia serves Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist and its seafood dishes are very popular. Head to Bar Salon for cocktails, entertainment and typical 70s style.
