Accommodation in Gran Canaria

August 22 2011

Many holidaymakers now expect all the luxuries of home from their holiday villa or apartment. 

As soon as they arrive in resort they look forward to enjoying the very best facilities. Spacious living areas equipped with International television, comfy sofas and a dining area to enjoy a freshly cooked meal or a glass of local wine. A well appointed kitchen, equipped with all modern conveniences, can instantly make visitors feel at home. The most important feature of a modern holiday villa or apartment has to be the bedroom. After a busy day exploring the resort visitors really appreciate a comfy bed, with fresh, high quality linen, ensuring they enjoy a good night’s sleep before another busy day by the pool.

Although holidaymakers appreciate the comforts of home, they expect the views from their apartment or villa to surpass the ones they left behind, which can certainly be guaranteed in Gran Canaria, Spain.

Many apartments or holiday villas boast breathtaking views of the stunning island. Gran Canaria looks even better when the glorious sunshine beats down on the island.

Year round sunshine encourages many holidaymakers to use onsite swimming pool and sun lounge facilities. There is nowhere better to enjoy a good book, good company, and a cocktail or two than poolside at your private holiday complex. 

Some apartment and villa complexes in Gran Canaria also boast other facilities including bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. The convenience of having these facilities onsite is appreciated by many holidaymakers. 

Visitors renting cars, bikes or scooters can often park onsite as many apartment and villa complexes offer free and secure parking facilities. 

Many holidaymakers choose to rent vehicles to visit the fantastic attractions in Gran Canaria.

Once they leave their apartment or villa complex families can enjoy two fantastic water parks. Situated in Maspalomas, Aquasar is the biggest water park on the island. The park is open all year and boasts a whopping 33 slides and 13 water attractions including Congo River and Surf Beach. 

Gran Canaria also boasts a second water park called Ocean Park, covering 25,000 metres. The park is well served by a bus service serving all the main resorts across the island. 

Families and couples also enjoy venturing from their apartment or villa to visit the Crocodrilo Park. As the name may suggest the park is home to one of the biggest collections of crocodiles as well as birds and monkeys.

Other family favourites include Holiday World, which is a popular amusement park featuring traditional fun fair style attractions including a rollercoaster, a 27 metre high Ferris wheel, shooting stalls and a laserdome. The attraction also boasts a health spa and fitness centre for older visitors.

After all the family fun at Gran Canaria’s most popular attractions, holiday makers retire to their apartments and holiday villas, to relax. After refuelling their batteries by the pool many people head out again to one of the most popular destinations in Gran Canaria.

Palmitos Park offers a huge selection of unique flora and fauna. There are also more than 200 different species of birds including toucans, cranes, peacocks, hummingbirds, macaws and flamingos. Other attractions at the park include a butterfly house and a cactus garden. The highlight for many is gibbon island, home to a community of white handed gibbons, originating from Burma and Malaysia. 

Aside from the attractions, there are many fantastic walks and cycle routes, near the holiday villas or apartments.

The natural beauty of the island is one of the biggest draws for millions of holiday makers. 

Whatever attracts holidaymakers to Gran Canaria, the quality of accommodation rivals anywhere in the world. Enjoy staying in a luxurious villa or apartment in Gran Canaria, Spain.
