Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort & Spa is located right on the seafront nearby the gay men's beach. This spectacular resort is nestled within the Maspalomas Sand Dunes Special Nature Reserve, a spectacular setting that represents Gran Canaria as a tourist destination on an international level.
The unmistakable beauty of the natural environment surrounding the hotel is combined with the proximity of El Faro Boulevard, an avant-garde shopping and dining district that offers everything our guests need to enjoy an unforgettable vacation filled with relaxation, recreation and fun.
The iconic architecture of Lopesan Costa Meloneras is inspired by the aesthetics of two emblematic colonial-style buildings: the Santa Catalina Hotel in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the Hotel Nacional in Havana, Cuba.
When guests arrive, they are met by an awe-inspiring building that pierces the sky with the iconic profile of this colonial palace that spans more than 105,000 m2. The hotel opened in 2000 and after almost two decades as a leader in the archipelago’s tourism industry.
All the design elements of this magnificent resort are centred around outdoor activities and enjoying the amazing weather. Guests can get away and let their imagination run wild in a lush, 76,000 m² tropical garden, home to over 800 palm trees representing 100 different species and subspecies. The vegetation flows at the pace set by the water and the harmony provided by its 4 freshwater pools (2 of which are heated in winter), 2 whirlpools, 1 children's pool, heated in winter, and its artificial beach. In total, the hotel offers 12,000 cubic meters of pools equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas that blend in with the surroundings. If there is one thing that sets Lopesan Costa Meloneras apart from the rest, it is its infinity pool: 102 meters long and 5,500 m³, it seems to merge with the sea, creating an optical illusion that becomes part of the photos and unforgettable memories of guests who have stayed at the hotel since it first opened. The structure and finishes of the infinity pool have been completely renovated, keeping the essence of this iconic Gran Canaria landmark intact.
The Río Pool (2,170 m3) has also been given a makeover, adding new shades of green and brown to create a special symbiosis with the surrounding nature. The course of this unique river has created a peaceful, island-shaped area which will delight our most exclusive guests. Like its aquatic sisters, the Unique Pool (650 m3) and the 'Árbol de la vida' Pool (348 m3) have been transformed, offering a new and updated image, adapting to the aesthetics of the rest of the pools in the complex. The renovations have also involved the expansion and creation of new areas, such as the back terrace of the Solarium Bar, now with more space for enhanced comfort and convenience.
Our guests can enjoy the best sunset in Meloneras from this magnificent location. The areas with the highest guest traffic have been modernised, upgrading the pavement and adding new decorations in the lobby, the Tertulia terrace and the Dragones Fountain. La Plaza is another of the hotel's iconic areas that has undergone significant changes, adapting to the demands of our guests and enhancing accessibility.
All of the paving has been updated, the irrigation networks have been upgraded and new attractions have been added to all of the resort's gardens, ensuring that repeat guests feel that they are visiting a new, modern and comfortable space that preserves the same essence of the original Lopesan Costa Meloneras Resort & Spa.
