The Most Romantic Hotels in Gran Canaria

Picture of Leon Beckenham
Updated: 18 December 2017

Thinking of taking your other half on a trip to the Canary Islands? It might not be the obvious place for a romantic getaway, but Gran Canaria has enough scenic landscapes, picturesque beaches, and – perhaps most importantly – some great hotels you can hole up in for some alone-time à deux. Here’s our pick of some of the island’s most couples-friendly places to stay.

This modern adults-only luxury hotel is located in the popular Playa de Ingles resort on the south end of the island, and a short stroll from its sandy beach. Its 67 high-tech guest rooms are finished in colourful and funky styling, with a contemporary opulence that really sets the mood – with the help of some tweakable atmospheric lighting. The hotel’s secluded gardens are filled with exotic flora, there’s a spa for couples’ pampering, and a rooftop restaurant providing the perfect spot for a candlelit dinner for two.

For couples looking for a more bucolic bolthole, the Las Tirajanas Hotel boasts a hilltop setting in the mountainous middle of the island. Rustic and colonial influences mingle throughout this charming upscale option, which features an adults-only spa, open-air swimming pool (with poolside cocktail bar), and restaurant serving Canarian cooking with local produce. Set almost a kilometre above sea level, however, it’s the spectacular panoramas that steal the show and provide the appropriately scenic backdrop to any number of romantic moments.

Crisp whites and Art Deco flourishes evoke more than a little of the Miami vibe to this trendy, adults-only hotel. The retro cool continues into its 133 rooms, which also combine kitsch touches with modern amenities and plenty of outside space – some with views over Maspalomas’ stunning dunes. Comforts such as pillow menus, speedy free Wi-Fi, and kitchenettes make for accommodation you won’t want to leave, though a chic swimming pool and the hotel’s Wellness Cottage (specialising in treatments for two) provide good reasons to.

Hotel Santa Catalina occupies one of Las Palmas’ most iconic and distinctive buildings, built overlooking a stately-looking garden and marina beyond. The vibe at this late 19th-century property is certainly more old-school romantic, with plenty of crimson carpets, polished marble, and crystal chandeliers. The 202 rooms are traditionally elegant, with some opening to spacious secluded balconies with glimpses of the ocean. There’s room service around the clock for couples who’d rather not venture outside, plus a swimming pool surrounded by tropical gardens, a fine-dining restaurant, and a vintage piano bar for cozy nightcaps.

Opened in just 2015, this boutique-sized hotel is certainly one of the more funky and contemporary, and it is located just a couple minutes’ walk from pretty Las Canteras beach on the island’s north coast. An adults-only property, the couples-friendly vibe is kept suitably conducive to romance with some of the 10 guest rooms opening to decked terraces with lovely sea views. For indoor snuggling, the suite has a super-comfy sofa and a massive flat-screen TV, lights can be switched to set the mood just right, and bathrobes come as standard; breakfast can also be served in-room for couples who’d rather not get out of bed.

With over 500 rooms, this high-end resort complex is far from intimate, but its combination of swish Art Deco and luxury detailing make for a fine setting for romance. It is nestled in 10 acres of pretty gardens practically overlooking the dramatic and iconic dunes of Maspalomas, as well as offering submerged loungers in an infinity-edge pool for couples to gaze out to sea while relaxing in the sun. For a more secluded sea-view soak for two, book a Junior Suite with jacuzzi terrace with views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa, Gran Canaria

Hotel Cordial Mogan Playa, Gran Canaria

The Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa is set in the picturesque valley and just minutes away from the beach in Puerto de Mogán – a charming resort on the sunny south side of Gran Canaria dubbed ‘Little Venice’. The hotel itself is more like a small village, distinctly Canarian in style with various accommodation blocks, four restaurants, two pools, and a partly-outdoor spa. Its 48,000 square metres (516,667 square feet) of lush tropical gardens provides plenty of space for romancing couples to stroll around and take in the over 450 different plant species.
