Palm Beach is a prosperous town in Florida originally set up as a winter resort. Seaside Palm Beach, meanwhile, is a five-star hotel in the south of Gran Canaria that received a post-millennial upgrade, mimicking the glamorous establishments of Miami circa 1970 with the boldest of brushstrokes. Palm trees? Check. Beach? Ditto. So far away, so very similar. There is a confidence about the hotel that exudes personality. It's an escape within an escape. One could happily relax the day away by the pools. For those seeking more adventure, the Sahara-like dunes of Maspalomas are easily reached on flip-flops. This is cool Gran Canaria, the sexy south. Both clientele and island locals wear their designer labels like badges of honour.

Copywriter, microcopy specialist, and SEO content writer
Matthew covers the Canary Islands and beyond. He relocated to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the mid-Noughties. Since then Matthew has reviewed more Canarian hotels than anyone else. He champions the archipelago's gastronomic scene. Matthew rates this the equal of the Basque Country and Catalonia.



An Antipodean-like winter makes it feel like you are Down Under at Christmas or enjoying an Indian summer in autumn.

Beside the Sahara-like dunes of Maspalomas, this hotel sits alongside a five-mile stretch of sandy beach, facing the Atlantic Ocean.
By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Gran Canaria take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport. Free parking is available on-site.

Style & Character

This hotel is ideal for couples and families seeking a sunny retreat from January all the way through to December. We love the wonderfully evocative 70s flashback vibe stylishly offered by Bar Salón, complete with a riot of daring colours including purple.

Service & Facilities

The warm enthusiasm of the welcoming staff fizzes as much as the bubbles of the complimentary cava served at check-in.

Our favourite rooms are The Corner Deluxe - a double room in size but with the benefits of an Illy espresso machine and daily newspaper delivery. Verdant palms here, there, and seemingly everywhere give the impression of taking up a temporary residence in a sub-tropical grove.

Food & Drink

Esencia's neoclassical vichyssoise brings a little something extra by adding tart-sweet freeze-dried raspberries to the mix, while La Bodega's pineapple with palm honey and honey-rum ice cream is the essence of the Canary Islands distilled in a dessert.
