Walk around the jungle-like gardens of this African-themed hotel and you’ll find no fewer than seven pools. There are four restaurants, too – including a great African place – plus a clutch of bars offering live shows and cocktails.
The hotel is just behind Meloneras’ promenade, about 5 minutes’ walk from one of the area’s most famous landmarks – the Maspalomas lighthouse. The beach, meanwhile, is about 10 minutes on foot.
You’ll find seven big pools in the gardens, plus two more for children. One of the most impressive is the lake-like pool with its two artificial beaches, but there’s also a lazy river and a cave zone with rocks and waterfalls.
A thatched-roof bar on the edge of one of the pools serves fresh fruit juices. Daytime cocktails, meanwhile, come courtesy of Henry Stanley bar, which is tucked away in a cave behind a waterfall.
FOOD & DRINK
The two buffet restaurants have an African twist, with wood screens and mock-mud pillars. The food they serve comes from around the world, except on the weekly African nights when you can try traditional African dishes.
As well as at the buffet, you can get another taste of Africa at the Akara restaurant*, which serves exotic dishes. Reservations are required. For al fresco à la carte lunches, there’s the poolside grill restaurant*.
SPORTS & ACTIVITIES
The sports line-up includes volleyball and table tennis. Guests also get a discount on green fees at the 18-hole golf course, about 3km down the road.
There’s a selection of bars to choose from – one of them looks like a safari lodge – plus a live band will entertain you with African music. Children get a mini-disco every night before the main show.
HEALTH & BEAUTY
The hotel comes with its own beauty salon* where you can book in for a range of treatments, from hairdressing to massages.
There's a good selection of twin rooms here. Or, for something more spacious, suites come with a lounge area. And if you're coming with little ones, there's family rooms available too. All rooms include a balcony or a terrace, plus air-conditioning is included.
