Seaside Palm Beach Gran Canaria

Palm Beach Hotel is managed by Seaside, a member of Design Hotels and one of the best hotels in the tourist magnet-island of Gran Canaria. My experience started with a check in in the evening and a warm welcome from the staff including the Dutch hotel manager. I was right after escorted to the room. I stayed in a Deluxe Room which wasn’t up to the usual Design Hotels-standards. It was comfortable and with L’Occitane products, but otherwise pretty basic. Palm Beach is really unusual for Design Hotels as they tend to be smaller, but Palm Beach has 328 rooms. Palm Beach is officially a 5-star hotels due to it’s excellent facilities. That includes lovely pools and beach, but due to it’s size it’s unfortunately crowded.

What makes Palm Beach great is the professional service and the fact that it’s well-run. A great company behind it. The food was excellent which was a surprise based on similar hotels in similar locations in the past. Comparable to a Michelin recommended restaurant and the service was really good in the restaurant as well.

To sum up, this is one of the few great hotels in the island of Gran Canaria. It’s very expensive, but for the money you get a hotel you can count on with excellent facilities and food.


My opinion: Great experience.
