5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

We stayed at Gloria Palace Amadores Thalasso & Hotel for one week in january 2014. It was the second time and we loved it also the second time. It´s a wonderful and relaxing hotel. You find everything you need there. The hotel is clean and the rooms are big and have wonderful view from the balcony. The hotelbreakfast is marvellous. The only negative thing about is that it´s so easy to eat too much. We had a wonderful week and I can recommend this hotel and give it 10 points!!

My wife and I went to the Gloria Palace a week ago. We went with our three month old baby so was quite nervous about our first trip away with the little one. Luckily the Gloria Palace was a very good hotel and we would return, 100%.

The only reason we would not give the five stars rating is there were little annoyances about the hotel that irked us. We were lucky to be in block 4 which had the direct access to the seafront walk to Puerto Rico and Amadores but I imagine another block may have been frustrating as the lifts were often slow or full and especially difficult with accessing with a pram. Some of the guests which were mainly German and Scandinavian were not quite so courteous when using the lifts as well, I am not knocking them as we were equally greeted by many lovely people. I would also say that drinks are pricey at the Gloria compared to the local area.

We went half board and it was great that you can swap your dinner for lunch which we did everyday. There is no way any one can complain about the food. There was so much choice you have to be crazy to not finds something you'd like. Grilled Meats, Salad bar (not usually the biggest fan but I really enjoyed the Salad bar here), Pizza, Rice, Bread, Potatoes and plenty of dessert. Breakfast was great as well. The location is great. We have been Gran Canaria before so I would highly recommend eating out in the evening. There are loads of lovely restaurants in Puerto Rico and especially on Amadores beach and very reasonably priced.

All in all we would 100% return especially as we felt the value for money was great and the location was fantastic. If you want to get out and about I would probably recommend trying to get a room in block 4.

Room Tip: Block 4 for easier access to beach front and walk way to Puerto Rico and Amadores.

Just returned after two weeks half board. Can't fault the hotel for room size, views, cleanliness and comfort. Rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels each day. Hotel comprises of four blocks, 1 & 2 at the top overlooking the pools and if you're in an elevated room, I guess you would also have a sea view. Blocks 3 & 4 are below the pools and have uninterrupted sea views - we were in block 3 and the views were stunning. This is a very large hotel, so if you're expecting a personal service, you're not going to get one. They must cater for about a 1,000 people for breakfast and dinner - it's a bit of a "bun fight"! Having said that the waiters were very efficient and some were getting to know us towards the end of our stay. As far as the food is concerned, it was all a bit "samey" and pretty tasteless, and if you have dietary needs like I have (coeliac), they can't guarantee that there is no gluten in the sauces. I was told that I could eat the plain food like chicken, fish salad etc. The lunches are much better as there are nowhere near as many people dining, and you can swap dinner for lunch which we did alot of the time and really enjoyed sitting on the sun terrace overlooking the sea.My husband also had a "mishap" where he choked on a piece of lamb in the restaurant and had to be taken to a medical centre by ambulance - the hotel showed no concern after the event, or enquired to his wellbeing.
Entertainment was ok, but by eating lunch it meant that we would go out in the evening where several bars have live music. We preferred Puerto Rico to Amadores, the harbour is lovely with lots to see, and there's a very large centre on the outskirts where there are lots of shops, bars and restaurants. All in all we really enjoyed the holiday, and whilst the room was very comfortable, we'll probably choose self catering next time.

Room Tip: Blocks 3 and 4 have sea views but not pool views. Level 5 on block 3 is restaurant level. I think bl...

I was a bit nervous about this holiday as had heard some not so great reviews about Puerto Rico. I had no need to be. This has to be the best hotel I have stayed in abroad. The hotel itself is amazing, lifts down to the promenade (don't let the reviews about the lifts put you off - you're on holiday for goodness sake!)' and amazing views from just about every room. The staff are polite, helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We have a 3 year old and the Animacion team were amazing. My hubby is a food snob and usually gets bored of buffet style dinners but we both loved the food. Fresh, well cooked, lots of good choices, and a special area just for the children. Maid service was excellent. Good wifi although sometimes signal varied but was not an issue. We will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: I think all rooms will be good as nearly all have sea view. Block 2 is above swimming pool so may b...

We stayed at this hotel in Oct 13, to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We seen this hotel 10 years ago when on honeymoon and wish we had of booked it then, so 10 years on and it lived up to every expectation and more. We stayed in a superior room which was amazing it was on the same level as the 1st pool and was very central to all areas of the hotel. We spent our time at the quieter pool which was lovely and relaxing and in the late afternoon before getting ready for dinner we sat at the chill out bar watching the sunset . We were AI and had no problems we thought the table service during the entertainment was great and efficient. We dined mostly outside on the terrace by candle light, I cant fault the food at all, we didn't eat out once even though we had planned to. I could go on and on about this hotel but I don't feel the need to the staff are lovely and do there jobs well, it is spotless, and the location has to be the best on the island with views to take your breathe away. Don't look anywhere else just book.

Room Tip: superior rooms are perfect for couples
