With its lagoon pools and safari-lodge styling, this luxury hotel brings a taste of Africa to Gran Canaria.
Walk around the jungle-like gardens of this African-themed hotel and you’ll find no fewer than seven pools. There are four restaurants, too – including a great African place – plus a clutch of bars offering live shows and cocktails.
The hotel is just behind Meloneras’ promenade, about 5 minutes’ walk from one of the area’s most famous landmarks – the Maspalomas lighthouse. The beach, meanwhile, is about 10 minutes on foot.

Having just arrived home from our 10 night stay I can't speak highly enough about this hotel. From the moment you arrive you are warmly welcomed and that friendliness is experienced throughout the hotel. We had a family room, which was great size for 4 of us. Each day it was made up really well too - the kids loved the bedtime chocolates! There is no shortage of things to do, just depends on how much you want to do. We explored most of the pools, which were a little chilly when you first got in, but not for long. The kids loved them and we felt relaxed knowing there were life guards on duty too. The hotel puts on loads for kids, my 2 loved it. Meal times were excellent. We went half board, and both breakfast and dinner were superb. A mouthwatering array of food, for adults and kids to try. The staff were excellent too, so good with the kids. A special mention to Ortiz in the restaurant, he was great with my kids and they couldn't wait to see him each day. Africa bar is amazing - if you go you must try some of the cocktails at the end of a sunny day, very relaxing. If you want to wonder out, there is a shopping centre close by and the sea side with a lovely beach isn't far either. I ran a few mornings, which is gorgeous. Lots of other runners out and with the sea at your side it's a great wa to start the day. We will be back - we all loved our stay.More

Great for a family holiday
We went with our 3 months old daughter and were not the only ones with small kids. There are different pools, but we liked the pool in a shape of a small river the best, because you can find shade and a bit of quiet there. As a coeliac, i had to make sure that i'm not eating anything with gluten. The hotel provides gluten free bread and a chef explains what dishes can be eaten. They also offer to cook certain things specially for you. This is generally a good service, although i prefer to have the allergenes indicated at the buffet, so that i don't have to bother a cook every evening. More
Had a great time, friendly staff, clean place, great for kids - Maybe a bit light on the evening entertainment, but otherwise good all around. Loved the swimming pool in form of a circuit, food was great and its close to many tourist attractionsMore
Just back from a week long stay at this resort and we enjoyed every minute of it. The staff work amazingly hard and the entire resort is just fantastic. The food is excellent, the pools are lovely - the entire resort is just superb, you won't be disappointed. We did find that most of the Sun Loungers round lazy River and the larger pools were taken by mid-morning - so if you have a late breakfast you might struggle to find a spot but generally it wasn't a problem. In summary - just go here!!! You'll love it, honestly!!More
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel like royalty. The staff are friendly and helpful and can't do enough for you. The hotel itself is exceptional with lots to do and has fantastic swimming pools. The pools are a bit on the cold side once you get in but after a couple of minutes the temperature feels ok. We loved the pool with the lazy river and the bar staff at this pool were outstanding - they insisted on taking our order and bringing drinks over to us even though we were happy to carry them ourselves and they were so friendly and great with our son. The food choice in the restaurant was great at breakfast and at dinner times. There was a theme each evening for dinner and a great choice of food each night. Staff in the restaurants made a big fuss of our son, laughing and joking with him each evening - this was great as it made him feel really important. My son joined in with the kids club football each day and absolutely loved it. There were children and parents of all nationalities playing together and everyone had great fun. We paid for internet in out room, mainly because we wanted to facetime family at home. It was â¬2.00 per day for up to 4 devices which I thought was great. We also paid for the safe in the room which was â¬2.50 per day - again, I didn't mind paying this as it is something that we wanted. The hotel is in a great location, quite close to a nice shopping centre and the sea front which had lots of nice shops and restaurants. We will definitely be returning to this hotel. Thank you Lopesan Baobab for a fantastic holiday.More
