Meloneras Gran Canaria 2016: First Timer s Guide

Meloneras, Gran Canaria

Things To Do / April 8, 2015

Perfectly located close to the popular areas of Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés, Meloneras is on the south coast in the direction of Puerto Rico. Running north-west from the lighthouse, this resort has recently been given a major facelift and wow it’s impressive!

Everything about this place has an air of luxury about it. It’s attractive, trendy, affluent and above all stylish, without being over the top.

Crammed with designer shops, jewellers and high-end boutiques it’s a haven for retail therapy, not to mention fine-dining. There are shopping centres, restaurants, cafés and bars running along the promenade offering cuisine from all over the world. The choice of international dishes and where to sit and enjoy a beautiful sunset are endless.

The beach itself is sandy and perfect for a spot of sun-bathing and taking a dip in the clear waters of the Atlantic - people from all over the island come to the beach here for the tranquillity if offers; you know it’s good if the locals like it.

By night Meloneras really lights up. There are some great places to chill out with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down, or kick back and listen to live music playing in the background. In contrast to Playa del Inglés, Meloneras offers a more discerning kind of nightlife. You will not find lager louts here!

One of the most popular places to visit during the evening is the casino where you can try your luck on the roulette wheel or blackjack then watch the famous Legends Cabaret Show.
The hotels here ooze grandeur. They truly are wonderful boasting 4 or 5 stars, very palatial and impressive looking buildings – a stay in one of these is very special indeed. Many offer top-notch cuisine from some of the best chefs on the island.

Spain-Grancanaria works with the finest hotels in the best locations all over the island and in trendy Meloneras there are three superb places to choose from. The 5-star Lopesan Villa del Conde Resort & Corallium Thalasso Hotel has excellent facilities including a world class spa offering exquisite pampering treatments, luxurious rooms with beautiful ocean views and five swimming pools within the scenic grounds. Also with 5-stars is the impressive Lopesan Baobab Resort which has a strong African theme running throughout. The accommodation is sumptuous; there are excellent facilities in the hotel, particularly for children and several on-site gourmet dining options. Located very close to the beach, this exotic hotel is a popular venue for events, particularly for guests celebrating something special.

Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort, Corallium Spa & Casino offers guests the chance to unwind in decadent surroundings; there is definitely a sophisticated feel about this 4-star seafront hotel. An outstanding array of facilities are available including a spa centre, a selection of fine-dining restaurants, on-site casino and plenty of activities to keep younger guests entertained.
