Lopesan Baobab Resort is ranked as the top hotel in Meloneras on TripAdvisor. It has a chic African theme running throughout it, from it’s striking colonial-inspired architecture to the gorgeous wild greenery that surrounds the hotel. Everything is designed to make you feel like you have stepped into an entirely new world, both exotic and beautiful.
Inside, the rooms are more toned down, with simple decor that uses small touches to tie in with the African theme. Many of the rooms have ocean views, while others look onto the resort’s leafy grounds or the mountains of Gran Canaria. All the rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. It is worth mentioning, however, that the hotel charges extra for WiFI in the rooms.
There are no less than seven pools in this resort, including two children’s pools (which keep the other five mostly child-free). All the pools are surrounded by loungers and stunning greenery, and there is always a nearby bar or cafe for you to keep yourself refreshed.
In fact, the hotel boasts four bars, two buffets, and two restaurants, offering a staggering selection of meals and treats. Each place has its own unique atmosphere, from an African hut-themed buffet to a bar that sits in a stone enclave behind a set of waterfalls.
The resort has a small but well-equipped free gym, but there is also a large independent gym downstairs, which you can pay to attend. There are also several sports facilities available in the hotel, including tennis, table tennis, volleyball, and golf.
If you can bring yourself to leave the resort, Maspalomas beach (including the gay beach section near Hut 7) is walking distance. Yumbo is too far to walk, but just a 10-minute taxi or a 20-minute bus away.
♥ Beautifully-executed African theme throughout the resort
♥ Seven (seven!) outdoor pools to enjoy
