Transfer from GC Las Palmas airport to Lopesan Baobab

Hello,

We are a family of two adults, a pre-schooler and a baby. What would be the best transfer option from the airport to the Lopesan Baobab hotel? The hotel charges an arm and a leg for the shuttle service. Are there any other reliable option please? How much would it cost and do we need to book in advance? Thank you.

Just hop in a taxi outside arrivals there are many waiting there. Fare down there will be around 38-40 euros.

If you're comfortable with the bus, Bus 66 starts at the airport and terminates at the Faro Maspalomas Bus Station - right opposite the Baobab. According to Globalbus website it goes at 20 mins past each hour both ways from around 6 or 7am to 9 or 10pm at night. Gran Canaria buses are nice (more like coaches) and I think and adult one-way ticket is 4E.

Here's the bus website if it's any help.

Hi,

Just phoned up the cheerful staff of the hotel, and they confirm that the bus stops just right next to the hotel. There is a five minute walk between the bus stop and the entrance, as you have to walk around the hotel complex, so you might consider taking a taxi to be more comfortable. I would definitely go for the taxi from the airport, since you have children and luggage.

Cheers,

Sunny

Hi,

I'm heading to Lopesan Baobab tomorrow. Just wondering how long the bus takes to get there compared to a taxi? Anyone who knows?

Hi, try this company. Seems very reasonable for a return trip from Airport to Hotel.

siljeelise:

the bus goes right round Playa del Ingles dropping people off . the advantage is that it will give you a very good idea of the layout of the resort, the disadvantage is that it will take about an hour from the airport. Obviously a taxi will be much quicker, probably about twenty minutes but you will be paying a significant amount for those 40 or so minutes. Last bus goes fairly early and if you just miss one they only go every hour so you could have a long wait which usually means expensive airport snacks so a cost comparison needs to take this into account too.

Have you thought about hiring car?

About 90 euros for a week. Bargain even if you dont use the car.
