With its balmy climate and warm seas, Gran Canaria makes for a fabulous holiday destination whatever the season. Add to this a welcoming spa hotel with access to one of Europe’s largest thalassotherapy centres and you have all the ingredients for a restful and rejuvenating stay.
Gloria Palace San Agustin Thalasso & Hotel has an idyllic location, overlooking an attractive freeform swimming pool and the sparkling sea. Relax on your private sea-view terrace, in one of many solarium areas, by the pool or down on the huge sweep of sandy beach, just a short walk away.
The real cherry on the cake here though is the flagship spa Thalasso Gloria San Agustín. Designed by local architect Luis López, its large transparent dome allows natural light to come flooding in and showcases spectacular views of the sea. With a large mural by famous local painter, Pepe Dámaso, decorative ceiling paintings and stone sculptures, this is no ordinary pool. And with all this going for it, it’s no wonder this seaside gem has earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Airy Double Thalasso rooms, are decorated in soothing neutral tones and boast a sea view from a private terrace. Upgrade to a Junior Suite to make the most of a separate living area with sofa bed.
With show cooking and a scenic alfresco dining terrace, the main buffet restaurant, where you’ll tuck in to breakfast and dinner each day, packs a punch. For a treat pop up to the panoramic Gorbea a la carte restaurant on the ninth floor, which serves a delicious mix of Basque and international cuisine.
Thalasso Gloria is dedicated to seawater therapy and embraces much of the latest technology. In the huge indoor seawater pool you’ll find a relaxing circuit at different temperatures with a staggering 34 hydromassage stations – cross-current swimming, microbubble seats, swan-neck water jets, waterfalls and more.
The hotel is quietly located in San Augustin in southern Gran Canaria. You’ll enjoy easy access to the bar and restaurant areas, as well as a shopping centre. It’s about 500 yards to the nearest beach – Las Burras, and around 600 yards from Playa de San Augustin beach. There’s a complimentary shuttle service to the dunes of Maspalomas and Playa del Ingles.
How to Get There
Had a great week here all inclusive very nice hotel with good food and a good atmosphere,
the chill out terrace on the roof top is great with amazing views, would definitely recommend this hotel,for a chilled stay
Fantastic place to stay for wedding anniversary!!! Amazing staff!!! Thank you Raquel Santana!!! Food every day is different and delicious. Room clean and nice. We recommend to everyone to stay in this Hotel!!!
Booked, arrived and found that the whole spa facility was closed for renovation until December.
Our travel agent did not know and so we were not told.
Very upset as I was giving my wife a two week spa trip.
The travel agent did not obviously do the full homework.
Also, all the sea view rooms face the entertainment and outside bar area. Some noise until late, although entertainment finishes at 11:00pm, but the outside bar goes on until late, some guests ate drinking until very late.
Visited for 10 nights in mid June. Arrived at night and the sight of the hotel lit up was incredible. The hotel is very large but when you get settled in it feel homely.
We stayed in a room on the 7th floor, the views were spectacular. Plenty of space, and cleaned daily, with 2 free bottles of water provided, which was a nice touch. Part of our group stayed in a Family room, whilst there wasn’t much of a view, it was well laid out.
We stayed Half board but upgraded to all inclusive the 2nd day there. Included was breakfast/lunch/snack bar/dinner. Breakfast was very nice, huge selection to choose from, and fresh eggs/omelettes/pancakes were what most of us went for, although the pastries were nice too. Lunch and evening meals served varied freely cooked meats, which changed each night and freshly made pizzas, and the snack bar was burgers etc. All in all really tasty food and brilliant service from the waiting staff.
With the all inclusive there is a massive selection to choose from, and all our party, who all drink different alcohols, were well taken care of. I mainly drank cocktails, and the quality of them did vary from bar to bar, but always nice. If you like to have a drink then please upgrade to all inclusive as it is well worth it.
The only area where there could be improvements. We didn’t really get involved in the daytime activities, but the evening entertainment was a mixed bag. There were some brilliant acts/dancers/singers in the main show, but after the main show there were usually 2 singers and it kind of fizzled out. Maybe incorporate karaoke a couple of the nights after the main show to get people more involved?
Immaculately clean, brilliant staff, plenty of sunbeds.
Overall it was a great holiday at a great hotel, and for the price we paid, an absolute bargain. I personally can be wary of places that have too many glowing reviews, but all I can say is that the reviews I read on here where justified. We are already planning our next visit.
Me and my partner just spent 7 days here in this wonderful hotel! Staff were so friendly and catered to any need & always ask if you require anything. Pool areas are lovely and the pool bar is even better! Especially the tequila sunrise..
the only thing I would say could improve is the entertainment at night. Don’t get me wrong its really lively and a good atmosphere but it’s also the same singer singing the exact same songs ever night.. it would have been nice if a show or something was put on instead of singers & dancers every night.
Other than that me and my parter will be back! Amazing!
