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.

I stayed here for 2 weeks over Xmas and new year. I stayed in room 517 right at the far end of the hotel. Air conditioning leaked water all over the floor. I reported it to reception after slipping and had a fall. Maintenance attended moped ceiling and floor. No apology from hotel staff. Food was repetitive and only like warm. Bottom of bathrooom door was rotting on both side. Stain and black mould on ceiling due to leaking air conditioning.

Hotel was in a good location. A nice selection of restaurants and bars within a short walk. Also really close to the maspalomas sand dunes. Weather was lovely. Average about 23 each day for the week we stayed. Staff were quite strict on face masks etc but to be expected. Food was good for an all inclusive with a good selection. Drinks also good for AI. Still ate out most days though as that's part of the holiday experience. Our hotel room was clean and modern but miles from reception and the restaurant and bar etc. Not a walk for a the faint hearted! Had a good stay overall. Would return but hopefully get a room closer to the action.

The staff work so hard here, killian the eating area was such a nice guy, as we're the others. My friends booked this hotel, I struggled to get a room for solo travel which in 2021 is so behind the times. I took a refillable water bottle which was a godsend, as you don't have bottles of water in the room and only plastic cups, I drink alot of water so would of had to buy one as a small glass is not adequate. Take a beach towel or you pay a deposit and a euro every time you want them refreshed, charge for the safety deposit which is not 4 star standard and uncalled for. The nighttime entertainment really let this hotel down I always stay all inclusive and can happily stay in the hotel not this time, its really geared towards kids the entertainment is dire, although they had a dj for new years which was really good but that was the only night of the two weeks with a bit of atmosphere. I love children but at times felt that I was in a crèche, the food time was so noisy and chaotic. One hour of entertainment at night which was very dated and outside on plastic chairs, then you could sit in silence in the lobby. The sun lounger situation is a nightmare, towels put out at 7am then no-one used them until 2pm! Due to the building blocking the sun, sun loungers were important, first hotel I've stayed at where you didn't get the sun all day, it was extremely unfair, could easily be addressed, if no return in an hour, guests give towels to pool boy and take them, simple! Overall staff are lovely and do work hard, some of the guests are so unfriendly with no manners (I'll let you guess their nationality), you open a door for them and they walk through without any acknowledgement, so rude! Luckily any Irish, Scottish, English guests were friendly and made up for it, but be warned they stare continually I found them so negative, especially on holiday and in these times, cheer up. Actually felt sorry for them towards the end, as they were on holiday so can only imagine what they are like in everyday life, the poor children didn't even crack a smile, no wonder! Overall good enough 3 star but didn't have little attention to detail that 4 star and above have. I made the best of my time there and didn't have a bad time, ideal for families who don't want entertainment for them.
