With our partner easyJet Holidays, these are the best hotels for a seaside break in Gran Canaria
Mirador Maspalomas by Dunas
Best for… family holidays
Warm, welcoming and with splashes of luxury, this fun-loving resort is perfectly placed for days spent exploring the best restaurants and shopping Maspalomas has to offer. That said, its extensive buffet restaurant and picturesque bar, which curves around the outdoor pool, might tempt you to stay inside its extensive, Mediterranean-inspired grounds – particularly when the luxurious wellness centre is open for treatments, and the variety of kids’ clubs can take the children off your hands...

Abora Interclub by Lopesan Hotels
Best for… all-inclusive
Take the high ground at this laidback, contemporary hotel on the slopes of one of the mountains around San Agustin, one of Gran Canaria’s best-loved resorts. With uninterrupted views out to sea – particularly from its outdoor pool – and striking palm tree gardens, you may never want to come down. And why should you? The hotel has pools for kids and grown-ups, sports facilities and gourmet Mediterranean restaurants, as well as a brilliant poolside cocktail bar.

Mogan Princess and Beach Club
Best for… amazing views
It’s hard to tell where the infinity pool ends and the ocean begins at this luxurious four-star resort at the very southern tip of Gran Canaria. In a gorgeous spot above the Taurito valley, its views of the bay are spectacular, wherever you are: on one of the carefully staggered balconies that climb the side of the valley like a staircase, sipping cocktails on a sunny terrace, or dining in one of its romantic, glass-walled restaurants. A free shuttle links to the sandy beach below, where the hotel’s own lounge beach club awaits.

Lopesan Villa del Conde Resort and Thalasso
Best for… luxury stays
One of the most sumptuous hotels in Meloneras' little cluster of five-star resorts, its pretty domes and white balconies are inspired by traditional island architecture. It looks like a palazzo, right at home against the bright, blue sky, and its marbled halls and corridors and cool Mediterranean-modern rooms certainly give it a royal flush. And that doesn’t end with its plaza-side and cocktail bars: its health centre, Thalasso, is an exquisite seaside spa with boutique treatments and ocean views.

Seaside Palm Beach
Best for… architecture
An iconic hotel in dreamy Maspalomas, this five-star luxury hotel sits within its own oasis of palm trees inside a gorgeous, vibrant nature reserve, a few minutes’ walk from the sandy beach and its famous dunes. Inside, it’s breathtaking – designed in cool, modern style by Parisian designer Alberto Pinto, with stripped-back chandeliers and funky 70s furniture that are endlessly Instagrammable. Every room is uniquely conceived, as are small bites at the chic tapas restaurant and cocktails at the salon bar – a Modernist triumph straight out of a Bond movie.

Gran Canaria Princess
Best for… grown-up getaways
An ideal base from which to explore Maspalomas’s spectacular sand dunes, this adults-only, four-star stay in the heart of the Playa del Ingles offers a brilliant balance between city break and beach time. Its sleek, modern spaces and secluded pools and wellness area are all very chic, and you'll find incredible views over the city around every corner. If you can hold back from stopping for cocktails and tapas at the many surrounding restaurants, it’s just a short walk to the playa, with its spectacular sandy scenery, beach and water sports.
