5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

spent our silver wedding anniversary at the gloria palace amadores arrived 25thfeb for 1 week had a lovely room in block 1 floor 6 over looking the pool and sea the views were amazing there was a bottle of carva waiting for us in the room which was nice and chilled.The room was a good size with a big bed and large bathroom all was spottlessly clean maids came in every day.We paid for a upgrade and im pleased we did because we got to use the spa as much as we wanted it was fantastic. We went half board and the food was lovely we did go out a couple of nights just for a change. The only thing that i wasnt happy about was that 1night we got a couple of drinks to take up to the room and we were charged 10euros which i thought wasnt bad for a 4star hotel but 2nights later we got the same drinks and they had gone up to 15.50 and when i questioned this they said the manager had changed everything i did ask to see the manager but he wasnt there and we were leaving the next day so i just left it. We did have a fab time and i would reccomend this hotel.

We stayed one week in February and enjoyed it very much. Great weather (app. 22 degrees) and perfect location if you want a decent hotel, proximity to the beach (5minutes walk), a safe environment for children and do not need bars and noisy night life. Very friendly staff - great with children. We felt very welcome. The food was nice and varied and room and hotel facilities nice, clean and spacious. Will definitely consider returning some day.

Very good service and servicemindet people works in the hotel. It is good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is over 5'th time and it has been good every time. Lois Santana in the restaurant and the rest of the staff is making the stay good. The healthsenter is good, so is the pools. We will recomind a stay in this hotel.

So the architecture of the hotel is slightly Gaudiesque and may take a bit of getting used to but what is good is that all parts of the hotel, including the bedrooms, are very spacious.
The food is fantastic and the drinks match. Cava (Spanish champagne), for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you want. The red wine and white was also very palatable. We tried some of the cocktails and no matter which bar they were made in they were good. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous.
If you want to get an all over tan there is an excellent area at the top of the upper terrace for naked sunbathing. We used it every day : )
The gym is slightly basic but quite adequate for a holiday. My only criticism might be that the evening entertainment was more designed for older guests. Moreover there isn't a disco so 18-30's but get itchy feet to go to a larger town. Overall, for a relaxing holiday it is marvellous !

Room Tip: All rooms face the sea/beach as far as I am aware.

This was an amazing holiday ! the Hotel is set into the side of a hill with sea views from all rooms.

Our room was superb quality and not too far from the reception / small pool and sunbathing area.

The food was excellent and service superb. the staff at the bar even remember what we had to drink when I went to the bar. The Hotel caters for Spanish guests (the entertainment is mainly Spanish speaking) but we found it a great experience and the guests were nice, family people with genreally well behaved children. The only down side was that the lift broke down for 1 day and the stairs are steep with a steep approach to the Hotel.

A 'man-made' resort with a fantastic beach, friendly Hotel staff and plenty of local restaurants to eat snacks etc. Lots of places to visit from here (Puerto Rico) is a short (1K) walk along a steep coastal path (or a short taxi / bus ride). Mogan is a great visit by boat (the Salmon lines boat takes you out to see the dolphins at certain times and is no more expensive than the 'short trip' ferry boat. Try the market in Mogan (cheap and cheerful) and grab a bite to eat by the Marina.

Room Tip: Ask for the block near the small pool

We had a fabulous weeks holiday in January 2013. 10 -17th.
The hotel was absolutely superb, food excellent and every aspect our our holiday was great.
We were a party of four, my mother, my husband, myself and our daughter. Ages ranging from 35 to 87.

Three generationsm catered for in every possible way!

My husband and I have booked again at the Gloria Palace Royal, for nine nights in May 2013. This has to be one of the very best hotels in Gran Canaria.

We stayed here in February and will definitely be going back. We could not fault the hotel. From the moment we arrived, the staff were so friendly - they all seem to love their job which is unusual these days. Our rooms were spacious , spotlessly clean and we had a fantastic view (room 2213). Couldn't fault the food - all mealtimes were superb. The chefs were on point to cook fresh eggs, fish and meat and the variety was immense.
The infinity pool is gorgeous for a relaxing experience and the animation team do great yoga and water aerobics classes.
I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.
