May 23-26: Just to see another of the islands, I had decided to spend my last three nights on Gran Canaria. Rather than flying, I took the ferry from Puerto del Rosario on Fuerteventura to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The journey took close to seven hours – but they show movies onboard! The first one had English subtitles, but the next two didn't. I think I was the only non-Spanish-speaking person onboard. ...
... on the track. I feebly got out of the kart and I could feel everyone's eyes gaze upon my poor, defeated self. I drove atrociously and I'm fairly certain I was a hindrance to everyone on the track. OH WELL! Slow and steady gets me there safely! Colin beat me at mini-golf too :( We ate some delicious Chinese food for dinner and overall it was a great day. The sun was really hot on the go-kart track but luckily I didn't get sunburned yet.
... sat next to us! It was a great start to the over 4 hour flight ahead of us. I didn't know anything about the Canary Islands or it's whereabouts besides the fact that the bird was actually named after the Islands. The flight was fine beside the fact that EasyJet likes to nickel and dime (or should I say pence and Euro-cent?) you for ...
... and showered in perfume...something that did not help my already sick stomach. At one point Mike looked at my literally green self curled into a fetal position on the bus bench and told me I was a fun date. When I recovered a few hours later I remembered to punch him in the arm. Our hotel room in Las Palmas was quite nice and comic book themed. It was quite a hike to the old town so we spent the better part of one of our days there ...
Aaaaah!!! Sun us shinning sky is blue, sea is much calmer (looking good). The day has started well, began with some exercise (in the gym!!!!), ( I knew that would impress you) enjoyed breakfast with some interesting people, off to camera club followed by cyber cafe tuition.

Historical Traveler Reviews Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia Maspalomas
This is a very comfortable hotel. The food is excellent, as is the service. There is a lovely pool. Breakfast and dinner is served on a verandah in the open air overlooking the pool with a view of the mountains. Lunch (very reasonable) is served by the pool. There is a wellness centre with a sea water pool, steam, sauna, treatments etc.
Value for money
Nice staff, ideal for a short trip, food was excellent. We were with a baby of one year, no problems altough we don't recommend it for children between 2 and 12 years old
We have just returned from two weeks in the Grand Residencia and are still feeling both "chilled" and cossetted. It was the most relaxing and comfortable hotel which fully deserves its five stars. The efficiency of all the staff, be it in reception, the bar, the restaurant and the rooms, was faultless. Nothing was too much trouble, everything was done with willingness, smiles and humour. The fittings throughout were of a high standard and everything worked - not always the case in 5* hotels! The spa and treatments were fantastic. I had a bad fall but a therapeutic massage soon put me right. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully appointed and two chocolates each arrived each day, together with fresh fruit which was replenished each day.
We stayed in the Grand Hotel Residencia for a week on a half-board basis at the end of February. This is a fantastically luxurious hotel with a spa and beautiful pool area. It is located 5 minutes from the beach but believe me, you will spend most of your time lounging around the pool! This is perfect for couples wanting to relax completely for a week. Most of the guests are older so if you're looking for activities such as dancing, sports, etc. this is definitely not the place to go. The same advice is for families with small children or singles. You may find this boring! However, if you plan to eat well, sleep, lounge by the pool and just relax, this is definitely the place for you. The service is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the rooms are spacious and luxurious.
First, I want to apologize for my English. I wil try to say it the best I can. We have had the most wonderfull holiday of all. It was the most quiet, peacefull, luxurious, friendly, discreet ... holiday since our last 6 years. Because I work in school during the year, we try to make a choice out of quiet, luxurious and when possible small hotels without too many children.
My wife and I made our scond successive visit to this hotel over the Easter period. I only go to the best, so that is why I returned. The standard rooms are superb. They are spacious with every modern amenity. The best rooms, in my opinion, are on the first floor overloking the pool. You can opt for rooms overlooking the lagoon, not part of the hotel, or the dunes.
As the owner of a busy country hotel, I was looking forward to some well-earned R & R, and I definately found here at the Residencia. Its a small property with lovely cactus gardens and its just a short stroll to the fabulous sand-dunes of Maspalomas. There is a lovely walk along the new beach promenade of Meloneras, with some great designer boutiques and cafés.
Having read the two previous reviews, I was greatly looking forward to a stay at the Residencia. Unfortunately, the hotel I stayed at seemed to bear litle resemblance to those described in the reviews. First the good news! The rooms are beautifully appointed, the reception area spacious, the reception staff professional and welcoming. If you like nouvelle cuisine, you will enjoy the restauarant too. In fact its what you would expect of a five starred luxury hotel.
My husband and I stayed here for a week during august. It was fabulous!
Marvelous Oasis of Luxury
We went to the Canaries (Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria) and Marbella in the South of Spain for our honeymoon. It was all fantastic, but this hotel was a godsend. It was truly marvelous. Small, luxurious, glorious and absolutely beautiful and tranquil. The staff caters to your every need, the pool and grounds are in absolutely pristine condition not to mention the rooms are luxuriously appointed and immaculate...and the restaurant is to die for - 4 course gourmet succulent meals. Truly a special place - perfect for a romantic get-a-way...no kids please!
