Gloria-Palace-Royal1-compressor

Grab an early booking offer to the luxurious Gloria Palace Royal Hotel & Spa in Amadores. One of Gran Canaria’s most popular hotels, this is a super way to kick start your summer.

 

Perched on a cliff with panoramic views of the sea, and only 200 meters from the Amadores beach, it is not surprising that the 4-star superior Gloria Palace Royal Hotel & Spa has been a favourite with Irish holiday makers for many years. Boasting a stunning infinity pool, two pools for children, as well as an indoor pool, spa, gym and fitness classes, you can choose to have an active holiday or simply relax and enjoy the views.

This luxurious hotel was built with natural stone and is elegantly furnished throughout. There are two restaurants and a selection of bars onsite, but if you fancy a change of scene, take the ferry to the nearby resorts of Puerto Rico or Mogan.
 

 

 
I love the location of this hotel, not only because its proximity to the aforementioned resorts, but also because of its sheltered location. Gran Canaria tends to be quite windy, but Amadores, on the south west coast of Gran Canaria, is more sheltered than the resorts on the east coast. This is perfect for sun bathing, especially during the cooler months.

Puerto Mogan

 

 

 
The Gloria Palace Royal Hotel & Spa Hotel is one of most highly rated hotels in the Puerto Rico / Amadores area on TripAdvisor, and receives excellent reviews from repeat customers. This is a superb deal for such high quality accommodation.
 

 

 
Fly to Gran Canaria on the 9th of May and spend seven nights in the Gloria Palace Royal Hotel & Spa for only €542 per person. Price includes flights and hotel with breakfast. Upgrade to Half Board for an extra €69 per person.
