“outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Arrived Thursday 30th May for 1 weeks holiday. This holiday took in our wedding anniversary in which within a couple of hours of arrival, we received a free bottle of champagne from the hotel in which both my wife & i thought this was a great gesture. This hotel was faultless, the meals & variety was outstanding. The staff couldn't do enough for you. The poolside staff were brilliant & very friendly. The entertainment team would come around the pool area's with complimentary champagne, fruit kebabs, sweets etc. Overall great holiday

Room Tip: block 4 is quieter, rooms are away from the pools & bars

My family and I spent three days at this lovely hotel and couldn't fault it. The location was fantastic being walking distance from two beaches. The service was warm and friendly. The food choice during meals was very extensive and last but not least, our room was huge with a magnificent view. Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Just had an excellant week at gloria palace,the staff are first class the management should be proud of them, with out going into to much detail everything was spot on.The only one little niggle and it is a little one was the food seems to be geared towards the Germans but we always found something, we stayed in block 1 on the seventh floor so we could see everything the pools and the sea, we will be going back at some point in the future

Room Tip: If you only want a sea view go in blocks 3&4, blocks 1&2 have a pool view on the low floors...

We have just arrived back home from 2 weeks in Gran Canaria staying at the Gloria Palace Amamdroes Thalasso & Spa Hotel.It was recommended to us by our friends of twenty years, They stayed at the Hotel last year and said it was 1st rate, we can agree with their observations 100%
Food- excellent Breakfast Lunch, and Evening Meal, very pleasant smiley faces, the choice of Food no matter what nationality there was choice for everyone. Bar Staff also great, Everywhere
was very clean,all around pool area was washed down early every morning. Entertainment was much better at this Hotel than other Hotels that we have.stayed in, we have been in many.Bedroom spacious we had room 1401B floor six in Block 1, we had quite a good view.Now for the (don't like) the Bathroom, for anyone small say 5ft the sink was hard just have a quick wash as the towel holder attached to the sink was an obstruction for us tiny people, also the bath was a little hard to get in and out as there was not anything to get or grab hold to steady onesself. All in all it is a brilliant hotel, in our opinion. we booked all inclusive, and it was worth every penny, There were lots of Irish people there, they entertained my Husband and myself in the aftenoons, they return to Southern Ireland before we came home, and they really missed. I hope this info is helpful ......we are hoping to return depending on the pennies next year.

Room Tip: High floors if one likes views we had floor 4 it was quite at night and the views good one could see...

We are just about at the end of a terrific week at the gloria palace and have enjoyed our stay here, the views from pretty much any part of the hotel are wonderful. The access to the walkway to either puerto rico or amadores is extremely easy to use and gives a loverly walk out either at night or during the day. Getting a ferry boat to the market at Mogan on Fridays is a must, this is a beautiful little town which is called the little Venice locally for very good reason, had a good haggle on the market and came away with some decent buys.
Hotel facilities are really good, the rooms are very large and comfortable and also kept pretty clean each day, the pool areas are very tidy and there hasn't been any rush for sun beds. Food is plentiful, tasty and has the usual all inclusive buffet style, which i guess can be a little boring after a while but restaurants locally are very good and reasonably priced if you need a change.
On a slightly sour note though i cannot understand some of the silly little rules that we have never experienced before on an all inclusive stay that happen here. Drinks are provided at the tables at meal times, you can order a glass of wine at dinner then keep catching the waiter for top ups whenever you want but to have a bottle of the same wine at your table will cost you extra? We arrived about 9pm a week ago and so are leaving late (5pm from the hotel) we have to check out of the room at 12pm, which is normal but our all inclusive status finishes then also even though we are staying here the rest of the afternoon? We want to keep our room until 5pm and are happy to pay the extra 35 euros for the privilege but have to wait until the morning of our departure to find out of we are allowed, does no-one know who is booked in the hotel tomorrow?
Despite the daft little things we have very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this to anyone else although be aware if you are booking all inclusive it is only under certain circumstances.

We are already checking out for next year and as a rule we don't do return visits.....the world is too big but this place or should I say palace gave everything it promised and more, it'd be rude not to return! We can't praise the staff enough firstly, everyone from the chefs to the maids to the waiters to the bar staff, they just couldn't do enough for you, nothing was a chore for them and their constant checking to make sure every detail was perfect never faltered. My only quip would be the week we were there several staff were being trained up on the reception desk and they weren't quite ready for the public in my opinion, saying that, everyone has to start somewhere and they were still enthusiastic and pleasant. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious; bathrooms were divine and the beds were made to individual preference. A pleasure to relax in after a day in the sun. Pool areas were gorgeous and the small touches were fabulous, individual cushions brought to your sunbed, no lack of umbrellas or tables and the bar was staffed so well that there was never a wait for a drink. Drinks were brand names and not a poor sub-standard liquid passed off to all inclusive holiday-ers. Leading on from that the food was to die for. A selection to keep you satisfied for 2 weeks easily, also a 'normal' selection so fussy eaters and children were happy. Although a lovely 'normal' range there were foods for the more adventurous. The food was cooked in front of your eyes to your own preference, this touch was just one of the things that made breakfast, lunch and dinner a pleasure and not a necessity. Entertainment was a great experience to top of a day of sun, sea, panoramic lifts, pool games, banquet feasts and pampering off. 3 shows every evening, kids, family and finishing with adult; we planned on exploring Puerto rico in the evening but the shows were so good we didn't feel the need. If you are contemplating a holiday to the Gloria palace don't hesitate, book it asap and prepare for a week of luxury. We'd like to thank all the staff for making our holiday one to remember not to mention the beautiful back drop of Puerto rico for being the perfect setting for a week of relaxation, entertainment and luxury!

fantastic hotel. wonderful location and views. Clean spacious rooms. very good food but a bit of a 'canteen' feel to it. Very good staff although a bit unhelpful when it came to sorting a late check out problem. Staff at snack bar seem to avoid work at all costs. Overall though a brilliant hotel

Room Tip: Block 2 is noisy!! Zumba outside your room at 10am when you have a hangover is not fun!!
