Gran Canaria has always been a top tourist destination for many reasons. Indeed, the sun, sea and surf play a big factor in attracting tourists, but it’s the hospitality and charm of the local people, as well as history and culture of the island that makes it a top vacation spot. If you’re thinking of visiting Gran Canaria in 2014, here are some of the top resorts to keep an eye out for.
Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa
Located in the heart of Puerto De Mogan, the Hotel Cordial Moran Playa is one of the island’s standout places to stay. Although it’s only a recent development compared to many of the older resorts, its stunning architecture, friendly staff and exceptional facilities are the main reasons that it is visited by thousands every year. With expert chefs serving the most luxurious Mediterranean dishes, beautiful public areas and swimming pools galore, a stay at the Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa will be unforgettable!
Hotel Parque Tropical
This is a real gem of a hotel, especially when you consider the aging design of many of the other high-rise hotels in Gran Canaria. Built around 1971, Hotel Parque Tropical is a great place to stay, with spectacular gardens that are situated across 9,000 sq m of land! There are over 500 different types of trees and plants in the gardens too, when make them the perfect place for an evening walk or an early morning run. The rooms are finely decorated, blending modern features with traditional soft touches, and there’s plenty of space by the pool outside too.
Maspalomas encompasses the resorts of Playa del Ingles, San Agustin and Meloneras, however because they all line one side of Gran Canaria’s beautiful coastline, they’re all simply referred to as Maspalomas. Perfect for anyone looking for a cheap and cheerful time in Gran Canaria, the resorts in Maspalomas offer great facilities and exceptional service, you can also try driving down the cost of flights by using a comparison site like http://www.cheapflights.co.uk/flights/Gran-Canaria-Island/.

Maspalomas is also surrounded by a whole host of natural features, not least the Dunes of Maspalomas, which are now a protected nature reserve. Because of these top attractions, the area of Maspalomas has become a hub for tourists all over the island, mainly older couples looking for some fine dining and a few bars to sample the local cocktails. But if you’re looking for something a little more lively, the vibrant nightlife of Playa del Ingles is only a short distance in a taxi.
