Puerto Rico’s Palmera Mar hotel is the perfect holiday destination for soaking up some of Gran Canaria’s year round sun. This recently renovated, whitewashed hotel is situated in the picturesque hills that encircle the town, with its tiered layout providing each of its 89 rooms with stunning views across the sea and down to the beautiful, white sandy beaches in the bay area, which is only a short 1km walk away.
You needn’t even walk this short distance to the beach to soak up the sun, however, as the Palmera Mar has its own private open-top swimming pool, with an integrated children’s area, on the lower terrace. There is a poolside bar, plenty of sun loungers, palm trees that provide some dappled shade, and of course, beautiful views out across the sea. All of which make it the perfect spot to sit back and relax all day in the sun, without having to leave the comfort of the hotel!
A breakfast buffet is provided for guests at the Palmera Mar hotel, with a snack bar to cater for you during the day. There is also a restaurant within the hotel, with excellent food, and seating that looks out over the bay, which make it the perfect setting for an evening meal and all the staff at the Palmera Mar are fluent in English, so there’s no need to worry about rehearsing your orders from a phrase-book beforehand.
If you do decide to venture out of the tranquility and comfort of the Palmera Mar hotel, the busy, vibrant town center of Puerto Rico is only 2km away. Here you can find a fantastic range of shops, restaurants, bars, and discos that stay open until 4am. There are also plenty of activities on offer; such as scuba diving, snorkeling, wind gliding, banana-boating, paragliding, and golf. The hotel is also perfectly situated for accessing the rest of the island, with excellent bus links, and car and bike rental available.
