Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia is located just next to its sister hotel Seaside Palm Beach, but it offers a much more exclusive and luxurious experience. While both hotels are 5-star, Grand Hotel Residencia takes it up a notch, starting with their exceptional standard of service. It is the only hotel on the island to be a member of the Leading Hotels of the World group, and is ranked as the second-best hotel in Maspalomas by the users of TripAdvisor.
The hotel is located in an ancient palm grove, which gives it a beautifully secluded atmosphere. All rooms and suites are located in large, airy two-story villas, each room including its own shady terrace from which to watch the world go by. Even the standard rooms are beautifully decorated in a colonial style, with luxury details like L’Occitane toiletries and daily fresh fruit.
The central pool is quiet and picturesque, with a chilled-out vibe and lovely greenery all around. There is also a wellness saltwater Thalasso pool, featuring a range of relaxing jets and massages, as well as a state-of-the-art spa. The gym is located along a terrace overlooking the wellness pool, which makes for a very pleasant workout.
The restaurant serves a range of international dishes and Canarian specialties, and is particularly good for fresh fish and seafood. The pool bar also serves tasty food and drinks throughout the day, and the piano bar is a classy place to wind down in the evening and get chatting with your fellow guests. Thanks to the “Cross-Dining” service, you can also benefit from the excellent restaurants at Seaside Palm Beach.
As with Seaside Palm Beach next door, the location is ideal for gay visitors. The gay beach is a short walk away, and you can get to Yumbo with a quick bus or taxi ride. Overall, Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia offers many of the same benefits, but with a more intimate and high-end atmosphere.
