Gloria Palace is one of the best hotels in the south of Gran Canaria. Located halfway between Amadores Beach and Puerto Rico Beach, Gloria Palace Hotel has a lift which takes you straight down to the beach promenade.
Although I’ve never stayed there, I’ve seen the rooms and enjoyed their breakfast buffet several times! It’s about 5 minutes from Puerto Escala where I work and the breakfast is top notch. It is a huge buffet with everything from yogurt, cereal, toast and pastries to freshy cooked bacon, sausage, eggs and pancakes! There are different fruit juices, herbal teas and coffees and fruit smoothies. Try to get in the dining room before 9am because it gets packed!
I’ve used the Thalassotherapy Centre in the Gloria Palace Hotel, which is a big pool with hydro massage stations, jacuzzis and algae treatments. You can also get massages and other kinds of therapy.
There is also a Gloria Palace Hotel in San Agustín, which is on the south east coast. I’ve visited that one too and it’s very similar in what it offers. I had dinner in their Gorbea a la carte restaurant and it was very good. If you are looking for good accommodation in Gran Canaria, I highly recommend either of these 2 hotels!
