This is a wonderful hotel, the rooms are delightful and spacious, the food especially the BBQ nights are great, not BBQ as you know it, you'll have to go to find out! The staff are the friendliest and most professional that we have come across, nothing is too much trouble. The pool is lovely, but when busy, sun beds in the right place could be a problem, the hotel was not busy when we were there.

This is not a place for kids, they will not like it, it is quiet, peaceful, and the clientele are 50+ the entertainment is low key, piano, duos playing very softly and the bar has little atmosphere, BUT, if you just want to be pampered this is THE place. Yes it is pricey, but you certainly get what you pay for.

The Spa is first class and treatments excellent (so my wife told me) we will return.

Very Nice Indeed

This was our first visit to Gran Residencia. We had a very enjoyable week.

The hotel is located a 3 min walk from the beach (no direct beach access). The whole is so exceptionally well maintained – absolute wonderful. Staff is super friendly and very attentive. The food in the restaurant (we had booked half board) is far beyond very good. The breakfast buffet simply has (more than) everything. Dinner is the evening is exceptionally good, wine list very nice and staff very very friendly.

So there is nothing to complain about? Well, not really complaining as such… A German group runs the hotel. On the one side that make everything very well functioning and if something should be “slightly off” it is corrected immediately. A few downsides are the not so nice comments by the German staff about their Spanish colleagues, many German – you would not believe that guests in a *****GL hotel put towels on the deck chairs at the pool before breakfast (:

Most of the guests are 60-65+. Don’t go there with children.

Nevertheless, Gran Residencia is far from cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for. A week there was very nice, two weeks would have killed us.

This has been I think, our 12th stay in 9 years - and we found the hotel by accident originally. Thank goodness for some accidents at least!
One is treated to consistently high standards of service with a friendliness and proffesionalism so hard to find these days.
Some of the "World Brand" hotels would find it hard to deliver such service - and always with a cheerful smile.
The architecture is fine, the facilities and amenities are superb,the dining experience to die for, capped by the civility and charm of all the entire team - whatever there role.

Room Tip: The junior suites are just the right size. We have a preference for the beachside ones.

The standards of this hotel are definately 5 star Grand Luxury, all staff are polite and welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay an excellent experience. The standards in the rooms could not be faulted and attention to detail made our stay extremely comfortable, we wanted for nothing. There were always plenty of staff on duty making the service impeccable whether in the restaurant, reception, bar or pool area. We shall stay here again, it was wonderful.

Room Tip: We were downstairs round the back,there was no noise and the patio was enclosed and private.

The hotel appears to be run by a mainly German management using local staff and I would say they do a fine job of keeping things running very smoothly. The hotel is responsive to customers requests based on our experience and the staff does its level best to satisfy one’s needs.

I suppose one could call Grand Hotel Residencia a boutique hotel due to its modest size, but I would say that is its charm. A classic Canarian luxury style is achieved to perfection. It clearly is an oasis in the area of Maspalomas, which seems to be frequented by the all to obvious British “fish & chip brigade” and local hard sell hawkers. The hotel insulates you from all this and with a swimming pool and fitness centre and there is no need to leave its precincts if a rest and recuperation break is all you are after.

We booked a pool facing junior suite, which was clean, excellent with tasteful décor and fittings and more than big enough for my wife and I. The air conditioning is efficient and not at all noisy.

A word about the restaurant. The quality of food and service was 5 star and ambience on the raised terrace overlooking the hills was something very special. The only real small drawback was that the tables were a little close together for comfortable privacy, but really that’s only a small issue. I would urge anybody to book half board, as the standard of cuisine is worth it alone. The wine list is on the pricey side but if you are staying at a hotel of this standard you have to go with the flow!

The main pool is plenty big enough for all residents and there are plenty of sun beds/umbrellas to go round with reserving them unnecessary. However, that doesn’t stop some folk arranging with the pool attendant to reserve some beds for the “we don’t like change” brigade. Because of the way the sun moves across the public area it will be necessary to move sun bed for one half of the day if you wish to sunbathe all day, but that’s no big deal. All in all a lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: East facing pool suites are cooler in the afternoon
