OVERVIEW

Maspalomas beach's sand dunes transport you to North Africa as they resemble the Sahara, but Seaside Palm Beach takes you to somewhere altogether different: 1970s Miami. It was constructed in the 1970s with a curvaceous Floridian facade. Three decades later, Parisian designer and architect Alberto Pinto gave the interior a Southern makeover.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Seaside Palm Beach is a mere hop, skip, and jump away from a five-mile-long stretch of sandy shore in a subdued south Gran Canaria touristic development; why not people watch at one of the nearby promenade's many eateries? East meets West at Samsara, perfect for dining alfresco as the temperature drop at night is more subtle than sharp.

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. Book flights to Gran Canaria.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The Seaside Collection is the brainchild of German businessman Theo Gerlach. He has an eye for design as the exterior is a crescent-shaped brilliance of white. The interior is colour coded in reference to the locale. Yellow and orange depict the sun, beige the sand, and blue ocean and sky.

THE FACILITIES

Waiters have the authority of an expert sommelier. In Spain, hospitality is a valued profession ensuring superior service and a low turnover of staff. They know the hotel inside out and develop a growing relationship with returning guests.
