H10 Playa Meloneras Palace
Hiding away in the south of Gran Canaria with its flashy 5 star status, this deluxe property is based in Meloneras. Facing the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by expanses of exclusive golf courses, its location alone is worth shouting about. Onsite, the property’s infinity edge pool takes centre stage, while its upmarket double rooms feature all the latest mod-cons.
Famous for its 24-hour All Inclusive, the cocktails are flowing until the early hours. And when it comes to your taste buds, they’ll be just as impressed by the line-up of a la carte dining options showcasing some of the world’s best flavours.
The H10 Playa Meloneras knows that one size doesn’t fit all, that’s why there are a range of accommodation types to suit your needs. Basic double rooms come with an astounding 41 square metres of space (there’s nothing basic about that) and a sprawling terrace or balcony area which overlooks the hotel’s tropical grounds. You can truly soak up luxury at this property thanks to the complimentary bathrobes, slippers, Wi-Fi and mini bar. Even the room service is 24 hours when you’re craving a midnight snack.
Guests can upgrade to a sea view, but there’s also a suite number if you wish to revel in 74 square metres worth of lavish facilities. This option benefits from a king-size bed, smart TV and a Nespresso machine. But if you really want to go all out, the presidential room will blow you away. From its Balinese beds on the balcony to its hydromassage bathtub and VIP amenities, it’s certainly worth the extra pennies.
The ultimate All Inclusive
Although other board bases are available, we would recommend its All Inclusive status especially as its one of the few hotels in Gran Canaria which operates 24 hours.
Tamadaba: This is your go-to dining spot from breakfast through to dinner. It’s buffet style with al fresco seating, show-cooking and thematic corners. Ranging from British classics to hearty Italian and local delights, find fare from all over the world at this diverse eatery.
Gaudi: As the hotel’s a la carte, expect an ever-changing menu for variety. Dine in an elegant setting feasting on seafood dishes, Canary Island specialities and melt-in-your-mouth desserts, all paired with a fruity wine.
Natural Bar: Hiding away by the pool with its range of soft drinks, ice-cold beers and cocktails, you’re bound to feel refreshed at this venue. It also offers light snacks so you don’t have to venture to the local restaurants for lunch.
Tropical Chill-Out: Located next to the infinity pool overlooking the sea, this is a must if you wish to catch the sunset. Of course, its range of spirits are just as impressive.
Lobby Bar: Gentle live music plays in the background at this low-key drinking venue, ideal for pre-dinner tipples or a catch up with newfound friends.
Tirajana Bar Disk: As the entertainment hub of the hotel, it only makes sense to grab a Mojito while catching one-of-a-kind performances unfold.
Facilities worth shouting about
We’ve mentioned the infinity pool with its epic views and luxury appeal, but what we haven’t told you is that this swanky property is home to a further two swimming options and another for kids. All of which are heated, so there’s no need for deep breaths as you lower yourself into its shimmering waters. In terms of clubs, there’s a dedicated one for those aged between four and 12 which is jam-packed with activities including painting, board games and a mini disco. Not to mention, there’s an onsite playpark with slides, rocking horses and swings.
But it’s not just the kids who can benefit from the non-stop fun, throughout the day competitions, water-based games and themed parties will create everlasting holiday memories. You can even learn a thing or two with tennis lessons and dance classes on the itinerary. And we can’t mention its award-winning facilities without talking about the Slow Spa Centre. Take care of your mind, body and soul with an ice fountain, whirlpool beds and biothermal showers.
There’s no need to wander far for Gran Canaria’s highlights either with Meloneras Beach all yours for the taking and the dunes of Maspalomas less than half a mile away. Plus, with a casino, championship golf course and line-up of bars within walking distance, there’s no excuses for boredom on this sensational getaway. Or, if you do fancy a change of pace, Playa del Ingles is only four kilometres away too.
