“Perfect in every way – an oasis of service excellence and contemporary chic”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel, it was perfect in every way and exceeded even the luxury level I was expecting. An elegant, classy and stylish 5* venue – truly an oasis of understated luxury, contemporary chic and personal guest service of the highest quality. They have somehow too, also managed to create an ambience that is a magical mix combination of relaxing tranquillity combined with refreshing positive energy.

This was my first visit to the Bohemia Suites & Spa and, although I had seen many beautiful pictures and fantastic reviews online, my expectations were fairly open. Almost instantly however I really did feel like I was staying with friends and within a week was regretting I ever had to leave! Even before I had entered the building the attention of the staff was ensuring a special experience – as my car pulled onto the driveway I was welcomed at the door, greeted by name and offered a welcome drink. Once inside, wide-eyed, open mouthed and repeatedly uttering the word “wow”, I was given a personal tour of all the hotel had to offer (whilst my luggage was magically spirited towards my room).

The junior suite I stayed in was colourful and contemporary and very stylishly appointed. A wall of bi-folding glass doors pulled fully back to let the outside in, allowing me to take in the gorgeous ocean/dune view from the pillow-top bed or head outside to relax on the furnished private balcony. Bliss!! The rooms and suites here come in three colour schemes (designer purple, sunny terracotta or bold yellow) – the purple version is particularly gorgeous. All boast mood lighting, mahogany flooring, olive-wood furnishings and high-end gadgets galore (iMacs, iPod docking stations, surround sound music, flat screen TV’s and complimentary Wi-Fi). Coffee lovers will not be disappointed either and all rooms additionally come with walk-in wardrobes, en-suite facilities and showers featuring rainfall showerheads.

The design, decor and exemplary service extends to all corners of the hotel, from the stunning guest rooms to the tranquil and relaxing garden, pool and “wellness” areas, as well as the two top quality restaurants serving delicious modern cuisine, the pool bar and rooftop late night lounge bar. Some tapas or a poolside cocktail? The fantastic “Saphire” pool bar staff has you covered. Don’t want to leave your room? You will want for nothing there either. Want to eat the highest quality food with wine expert on hand and perfect service? Head upstairs to the rooftop “360°” restaurant...

The rooftop a la carte restaurant, “360°”, is a jewel (one of many to be fair) in the hotel’s crown. Reached either through the hotel or via an outdoor glass lift, it offers panoramic views of the ocean, the beach, the Maspalomas dunes, and the mountains. The restaurant (as is the lounge bar) is also open to the public and I overheard it being referred to by locals as the best restaurant in the area. The focus in this restaurant is on the culinary art of dining and the food and service is simply exquisite (the locals’ comments are therefore not surprising). Along from the restaurant, and also on the rooftop, is the fabulous chill-out lounge bar – the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner drink watching the sun go down, or relax late into the night with a coffee or a cocktail.

For further relaxation, there are two saunas, a steam bath and several “wellness” areas available that are free to all guests. For the more fitness-minded there is a hi-tech gym, which has floor to ceiling windows overlooking one of the garden/pool areas and the ocean beyond. If it is full-on relaxation you need though, head down to the spectacular and sophisticated Siam Spa. This Spa is again designed in an understated style and specialises in Thai treatments– I can honestly say I have never felt so relaxed and would thoroughly recommend it!!

Being just a stone’s throw from the beach, the hotel benefits from breathtaking views – you can see the ocean, the beach, the Maspalomas dunes or the stunning mountain backdrop from almost every room, suite or restaurant. Despite the partying reputation of the resort of Playa del Ingles, the surrounding area to the Bohemia feels tranquil as it is mostly residential (the shops and main entertainment in Playa del Ingles are all within walking distance however). If your desire instead is to hang out amongst a fusion of designer shops and high-end bars/classy bistros, the more upscale area of Meloneras is also right next door (as are the golf clubs in Maspalomas) and only a five minute cab ride away.

The multi-lingual hotel front desk offers a full concierge service and is able to help out on all manner of things, whether it is business services you require, a car to hire (valet parking is provided), a private chauffeur booking (again, a service that I can highly recommend), or simply a shopping recommendation or a cab calling.

I understand when designing the hotel (it is a remodelling of an existing building) the vision was to create a high-end product that could be described as “a funky beach boutique hotel with a laidback feel more akin to the cool Californian pool scene of San Diego or LA”. Through their use of innovative high-end contemporary design and decor I would say the owners had gone a long way to achieving that goal – however, it is the addition of the hotel’s staff which makes this hotel unique. From top to bottom the staff at the Bohemia are friendly, knowledgeable and of the highest quality. Both individually and collectively they are truly from the heart the perfect hosts. (On a personal note, thank you – it was a genuine pleasure to meet you all.)

So in summary, the Bohemia Suites & Spa gives: modern but timeless, effortless, casual luxury for people who love stylish and comfortable; a total oasis of service excellence and contemporary chic. Perfect!! (and I’ll be back again soon!)

The resort is well past its sell by date but as you arrive at the Bohemia you can breath a sigh of relief and do as we did and cocoon yourselves away for the duration of your stay.

The Hotel has only been open a year and has been refurbished to such a high standard, pools and hot tubs are amazing, (they have a problem with the main pool liner but they are aware)

Staff could not try harder and were very attentive at all times, My Girlfirend is vegetarian and this did prove a little difficult for the Chef's to cater for but they got there in the end, Food is excellent and breakfast fantastic with anything and everything on offer.

Views from 360 Restaurant are great

We upgraded to a suite which has a massive balcony with a day bed.

All rooms air-conditioned.

Definitely will stay again.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a suite

We stayed at The Bohemia for a week and from our first to very last interaction with staff across the hotel - they made our holiday!
The Bohemia is a boutique hotel and the bedroom we had was excellent in terms of design, furniture and functionality. The balcony had 2 chairs, a table and a bed. This was great and ensured we used the balcony to the max!
We had breakfast each morning in a circular glass restaurant on the 8th floor - again staff is very well trained, professional & friendly.
The pool area was excellent and a lovely place to spend a day. Overall, an excellent hotel with great staff and we will return again soon!

This hotel is a real jewel on this wonderful island of sun. It is very friendly, extremely correct but easy going. The installations are really cool. beautiful colours and strict attention to detail.
The food is delicious, locally sourced and home made. The restaurant is a spectacular construction with incredible views over the whole of Maspalomas, day and night, it invites to awe. The cocktails are international standard, like the rest of the hotel. I surely recommend a stay here. I for one will be coming back, no doubt.
Special thanks to Judith in the reception, the hotel director and Aurelio in the restaurant for making us feel at home and very well attended.

Room Tip: we were in the Junior Suit on the 7th floor and it was spectacular.

We stayed there in a Suite between 17th and 31st of August 2013 and everything was just perfect, the room with sea view was amazing and huge, all the equipments (MacMini, TV, Home Cinema, Illy coffee machine...) were great.
All the staff is really helpful and available at anytime, each of them speaks several languages and they are always smiling, we had a great experience in Gran Canaria thanks to them too.
The hotel location in Playa del Ingles is very central and 10 minutes away from all the restaurants and the beach.
The hotel equipment (Spa, Wellness center, Fitness center, pools and jacuzzi) are all very clean and easy to use.
We actually hope every hotel we would go to would be like this one.

I cannot stress how wonderful this hotel is. From the moment you arrive the staff make you feel valued and welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and they anticipate your every need. The rooms are very high spec. Luxuriously furnished with the most comfortable bed with high quality bedding and all the technology you could want. The pool area is quiet, peaceful and attentive staff bring cocktails to your lounger, you can relax all day if you want to. The treatments in the spa are calm relaxing in a sumptuous environment with high quality products and well trained staff.

The food is fine dining. Four course menus with two choices for each course. Beautifully presented on quality tableware in a relaxed but attentive environment with magnificent views. Breakfast was delicious.

The basement gym and sauna area were always available and we were often the only ones there. Again beautiful, as if brand new and never been used.

The staff, including the manager at this hotel are without exception the most helpful we have ever encountered. I became unwell on holiday and they could not have done more. As we waited for the taxi to go to the hospital the receptionist brought me a bottle of water and a fan 'just in case the taxi was hot'

If you get the chance to stay at this hotel take it, you won't regret it. Do it soon as it is getting more popular by the day.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better the room. Sea view is worth it as you also get the breeze from the b...

My husband and I stayed at Bohemia in June and it was simply lovely. From our arrival we knew it was going to be great ..... our car and bags were whisked away at the entrance and we were led to reception where we enjoyed a champagne cocktail whilst we checked in. We were upgraded to a suite and that just made our stay even better. We were on one of the higher floors with a side sea view , which was great for an early evening drink from the day bed on our balcony.
The highlight of our stay was definitely the bar on the top floor terrace. With its comfy sofas and good selection of cocktails , it was a great way to enjoy the last of the sun at the end of the day.
We were on a bed and breakfast basis, but I can thoroughly recommend the desserts from the restaurant which we were able to have with our drinks in the bar.
We treated ourselves to a couples Thai massage in the Spa and would definitely recommend it.
As previously stated in other reviews , the hotel staff are excellent and take really good care of you.
Our visit was a few days before a large travel agent event and the hotel was very quiet , so there was almost a 1 to 1 staff to guest ratio. We are thinking of having another break in October , so it will be interesting to see what Bohemia is like when it is in full swing- Im sure we wont be disappointed.
