OVERVIEW

There is no greater concentration of five-star hotels in Gran Canaria than in southerly Meloneras; taking pride of place is the Lopesan Villa del Conde Resort & Thalasso. Modelled along the lines of a stereotypical Canarian village, the lobby is the spitting image of Agüimes' iconic church, Parroquia de San Sebastián.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel is either at the right or wrong end of Meloneras depending on whether you're looking for a buzz-filled break or a more chilled holiday. It's a ten-minute walk from the Maspalomas Faro bus station. If you fancy eating out, Argentinian grill El Churrasco is situated closeby.

By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Gran Canaria take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 25-minute taxi ride from the airport. Book flights to Gran Canaria.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

If travelling south from the airport, Agüimes is one of the places to stop off to see a beautifully-preserved Canarian village centre. Alternatively, keep driving until reaching the Lopesan Villa del Conde Resort & Thalasso, a 21st-century miniaturized version. The attention to detail is staggering, with authentic Canarian architecture expertly mimicked.

THE FACILITIES

Waiting to check in at larger Gran Canaria hotels can feel like standing in line at the airport but attentive staff makes the queue go quicker here; they point you in the right direction thanks to a handy map. The verdant complex features clearly-labelled fauna along with a putting green.
