The design of the Abora Catarina hotel by Lopesan Hotels is cheerful and fun, yet at the same time a cosy home from home. And fun has nothing to do with age at this hotel. Our guests don’t make age a barrier, but rather a shared motivation to have fun, as well as to rest and enjoy the sun and the beach. That’s why our guest profile includes the over 65s, adults and young people, as well as families with children, all of them adventurous at heart, eager to enjoy an active holiday experiencing life to the full. The hotel provides a very wide range of services and comforts, which can be adapted to meet individual requirements, with the intention of making every guest’s stay as pleasant as possible. The Abora Catarina by Lopesan is a new concept hotel, a fusion of themed entertainment with culinary diversity. In order to achieve this, its different elements include a very wide selection of different cooking styles with 24-hour access to a snack bar, as well as a strong focus on an experiential and themed programme of entertainment, which caters to all the different tastes of our guests. This complex comprises 410 cheerful rooms that are modern and comfortable, equipped with everything you need for enjoying your holiday to the full. These rooms include 18 Double Standard Economy, 5 Double Standard Adapted, 201 Double Standard, 120 Family Double and 66 Double Deluxe rooms with views, and they are distributed on 5 floors and perfectly accessible using the 8 lifts. All the rooms, the decoration of which is fresh and ultra modern in style, have twin beds, a divan or sofa bed, a fully equipped bathroom with a rain shower and hairdryer, a balcony furnished with two chairs and a table from which to delight in the pleasant views of the area, the gardens or even the spectacular Maspalomas dunes. They also provide 2 USB ports, 43" satellite TV, a kettle, free WiFi, direct-dial telephone and air conditioning during the summer months, as well as a safe deposit box and minibar at an additional charge. The board type provided by the hotel at its 2 eating areas is All Inclusive. They both cater to different dietary styles and include a wide variety of foods. The main food area in the establishment is the sABOReA Buffet located inside the building. It serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from a hot and cold buffet. Guests are guaranteed a different culinary experience nearly every night. Children will find just the food they like to suit their tastes, age and needs (a selection of baby food in jars, compotes upon request, dairy products, chocolate, etc.) at the other side of the buffet. The Snack & Go is also inside the hotel and has an outside terrace which is perfect for guests wishing to dine alfresco. Its 3 distinct locations serve different kinds of food: italian, burger and natural. Sharing the same space in the hotel lobby, at the 24/7 by Abora self service station drinks and snacks are available 24 hours a day.

Booked this hotel after my original holiday to the Canaries got cancelled. What can I say couldn’t do enough for you apart from the barmaid moaning at my missus for not wearing a mask ( couldn’t wear one due to medical condition). Food was great, good location not far from the sand dunes. Yumbo centre was in walking distance. Had a great last minute holiday will be back soon.

I was in the hotel for the third time, but for the first time after renovation. To be honest, an amazing change: first of all, the dining room, space, additional terrace next to the lobby bar, a wonderful snack bar on the pool! Revelation. Besides, in the age of COVID, leading to the table by the service and serving dishes by the chefs is simply wonderful. This is what holidays should look like: peace, quiet, no queues, kindness and smile of all employees. heartfelt thanks-once again- to wonderful Iwon and MariMar !! Thank you all for driving a smile that makes the day even more sunny. Safety and hygiene in the hotel is a priority. Thank you

Last week we were in Abora Catarina and really had a wonderful week. The hotel is great, clean, well cared for and despite the measures that unfortunately now apply, everything is well organized. The pool is large, clean and there are enough beds. The beach and dunes are nearby. The rooms are great, are kept clean every day. The restaurant is well maintained, with a variety of menu from buffet. The best part of our vacation at Abora Catarina was the entertainment crew. It was really great, the team does everything it can to amuse people and ensure that they have a good time. The shows on the evening are of high quality and everything to amaze the visitor! Thank you Abora Catarina for our wonderful stay! 🙏❤️

Abora Catalina Playa Del Ingles by Lopesan re-opened on 23 July. We arrived on 25 July for 14 day all inclusive family holiday. The hotel has extremely good, friendly, hard-working and professional staff in all areas. We had a really good large family room overlooking one two pools. The food was consistently good to very good. The pool snack bar was super convenient and very well stocked. We had a great family holiday. We were worried about covid 19 measures affecting the holiday but it was completely fine. The hotel has done a massive amount of covid19 safety measures which work well if you are sensible. It was well done and made us feel safe without spoiling the experience. There is 24 hour security on the entrance to check masks and temperatures and use of hand sanitiser on entry. This was very child friendly and done in good way. There is a nice security guard on mask patrol to remind people when needed (it's easy to forget). It is in a really good location which is quiet but still within easy walking distance of Maspalomos dunes, the Cita shopping centre and good local restaurants. It is a short hop to Playa Del Ingles' amazing main Maspalomos beach and centre in a taxi (5 minutes 3-4 euros) or bus. The main beach is open with lifeguards and serviced toilets, most bars and restaurants (but not the beach bars on the sand). It gets busy around 11am but there's plenty of space if you walk a couple of minutes on the sand.
