In Search of the Most Incredible Spanish Holiday Ever: 7 Beach Resorts You Should Consider
It’s been a seriously long time since I went to Spain as a child, but to be honest, from speaking to friends and family members, and searching around for information online, it seems that very little has changed with regards to the overall aesthetic of this European sun worshipers paradise since I left in 1999. However, there are plenty of new beach resorts, and after asking my contacts over the last few weeks, I thought it might be worth me writing a short article to help point out some of the most popular.
So, if you’re thinking of traveling back to Spain this year (I know I am), have a quick read through the rest of this article and see if I can inspire you to try somewhere new. Anyway, I imagine it must get a bit boring when you’re in Benidorm for the 14th time, right?
Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia
As one of the top resorts in Gran Canaria, the Seaside Grand Hotel Residencia is always a big hit with British tourists. This could be down to the fact that it’s surrounded by glorious beaches that offer fantastic views of nearby mountains and the truly spectacular landscape. The luxurious rooms on offer all have air conditioning and hydromassage bathtubs that are sure to leave you feeling totally refreshed every single morning.
Riu Palace Maspalomas
Another fantastic resort located within Gran Canaria, the Riu Palace Maspalomas is perfect for couples looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. With man-made lakes, tropical gardens, and literally thousands of palm trees on site, there really is no reason why you shouldn’t have a truly memorable time.
Castillo del Rey
If being able to overlook the sea from your room is a top priority, Castillo del Rey in Spain is most definitely the resort for you. Situated in the Costa Del Sol near to the town of Fuengirola, this self-catering resort comes equipped with private balconies on every single room, meaning you don’t have to hang around other British tourists in order to catch some rays.
Gran Hotel Atlantis
Located next to Corralejo National Dunes Park, this family orientated resort is renowned for its luxury rooms and more than reasonable prices. With all the usual amenities plus a fitness center, five restaurants and an idyllic spa with over 17 different treatment rooms, you’re certain never to want to leave.
Marriott’s Marbella Beach Resort
With jetted bathtubs, two outdoor heated swimming pools, and enough arcade games to keep your kids occupied until their 18th birthdays, Marriott’s beach resort in Marbella is a true hidden gem of the Costa Del Sol. Nearby you’ll encounter a range of activities on offer including paragliding, kayaking, water skiing, and much more.
If you’re considering a trip to the island of Lanzarote, you really must inquire about prices at this resort. With on-site Turkish baths, heated swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), and local scuba diving instructors never far away, this is the perfect location for a short family break. In the evening time, many of the clubs within this resort provide fantastic entertainment suitable for even the youngest of your traveling companions.
For those who prefer the Spanish island of Tenerife, a stop at Riu Garoe should definitely be right at the top of your “to-do” list. With a daily free shuttle service to the center of town, this four-story paradise has some of the most beautifully made pools on the entire island. An ancient Roman theme runs throughout the entire complex, leaving many visitors dumbfounded.
So there you have it my friends. That was 7 of the most incredible beach resorts you mustn’t miss out on during your Spanish holiday. I hope something on this list will be to your liking. Have a great time!
