Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria
There is one sole member of The Leading Hotels of the World on Gran Canaria. That unique representative is the five-star Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia. Where else in the world can claim to have hosted the diverse talents of Bruce Springsteen and Mary Berry? A stay here feels special because you are made to feel number one. The hotel is low-level and unobtrusive. It's hidden away from the rest of the Maspalomas resort. Privacy is guaranteed. You can keep a low profile at this high-end establishment. It's a real Garden of Eden in a holiday hotspot that is more associated with mass tourism than select accommodation. The only thing climbing here is the bougainvillea, which drapes the elegant exterior.

Being so close to the bus station is convenient, especially for non-drivers, but staying here you're in your own bubble.
The hotel is set in tropical gardens, next to the Maspalomas Dunes and five minutes' walk from the beach.
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

Perfect for middle-aged and elderly couples looking for a break in the sun without the accompanying hustle and bustle of a larger hotel. The flower-adorned bridge over the swimming pool is a beautiful image which ups the romantic appeal of the hotel.

Food & Drink
Head chef Wolfgang Grobaeur's photographic memory recalls what he last served - and we love the detailed sketches he has of his latest culinary creations. A strudel of sweet potatoes, port wine cherries and sweet onions is the perfect blend of an international dish with local ingredients.
