Meloneras is Gran Canaria's standout resort and the international RIU chain spent €30 million to upgrade the Hotel Riu Palace Meloneras from a four-star into a five-star. The crown jewel in their collection of Gran Canaria hotels offers accommodation fit for a king. Arriving at the Hotel Riu Palace Meloneras will open your mouth and widen your eyes in amazement. The exterior is truly striking and stepping through the door feels like you're walking into a modern art gallery. Distinctive white, black, and charcoal colouring reminds you that you're about to enter a Riu though. With direct access to the Paseo Costa Canaria, you can use this promenade to connect with the rest of the resort.
