Radisson Blu Resort, Arguineguín, Gran Canaria
The north of Gran Canaria is colder and the south is warmer. There are clearer skies in the west of the island than the cloudier east. This makes Radisson Blu Resort, Gran Canaria's south-westerly position ideal for a hotter, sunnier break. It's what transformed a fishing village into the go-to winter destination for northern Europeans in the 1980s when the Steigenberger hotel, the Radisson Blu's predecessor, opened. Soon, the Steigenberger's helipad whirred with the arrival of Scandinavian VIPs. The see-through lift feels like a fairground ride as you whoosh toward the Atlantic from the clifftop reception - one of the innovations introduced by Norwegian designers before it re-opened as a Radisson Blu in 2012.
Your expert reviewer
Surfing is popular on Gran Canaria but the two beaches closest to the hotel are family-friendly, with the Atlantic at its most pacific.
The hotel is in Arguineguín, right by the beach and less than two miles from the popular resort town of Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria.
By plane: flights from London, Birmingham and Manchester to Gran Canaria take around 4 hours 30 mins. The hotel is a 30-minute taxi ride from the airport. Free parking on site. skyscanner.net
Style & Character
The expansive look and sublimely relaxed feel of the hotel has visiting families very much in mind. The novelty of heading inside and catching the lift down to your room rather than up doesn't wear off.
