From the moment you step into the hotel, your tech dreams begin. Upon arrival you’ll be given a tablet by the lovely staff. But this isn’t just any tablet, this is your gateway to constant 4G connection anywhere on the island. You can use the tablet as a wi-fi hotspot, so you can be connected to the internet 24/7. Better still, you can connect up to four devices, meaning the whole family can be on Instagram at the same time.
The tablet’s not only a saviour when it comes to connecting to the world wide web, but it also has GPS. This means that, no matter where you are, you can check in with the hotel’s concierge at any time. So there’s no need to run down to reception for assistance - you have the option to book a table at a restaurant, such as the sky-high 360 restaurant, book excursions, or grab an appointment for spa treatments at the Siam spa, which offers treatments such as Mali Suay jasmine rice exfoliation.
We’re talking mood lighting, iMacs, Apple TVs, flat screen TVs, advanced speakers – the works. Well, would you expect anything less? For those evenings that you fancy just chilling in your hotel room, you’ve got everything at your fingertips. So turn on the flat screen TV, pick your favourite film and set the mood with your adaptable mood lighting. All you need now is some popcorn…
We won’t blame you for wanting to spend all your time in the hotel, but if you do want to get out and see what Gran Canaria has to offer, here are some of our top picks.
If you fancy a change from watching movies in your hotel room, you can head to Europe’s only permanent open-air cinema. Release your inner celeb by walking down a red carpet to the screening and get comfy on a sofa, rather than your usual fold-down chairs. Then, have your food and drink orders taken by waiters who come directly to your seat to offer everything from a wood-fired pizza to a slice of New York-style cheesecake.
Feeling flash from your stay surrounded by fancy gadgets at Bohemia Suites & Spa? Then a trip to Las Arenas shopping mall should be on your list. They’ve got everything from shops dedicated to the latest technology, tasty food, glitzy jewellery and even some places for the kids. It’s the perfect place to pick up some souvenirs for all the jealous family and friends back at home.
We know it will be hard to tear yourself away from all the tech at the hotel, but sometimes it’s nice to escape from it all – even just for a few hours. If you want to breathe in some fresh country air and see some of Gran Canaria's countryside sights, then why not try a mountain bike tour? Pedal through some of the island’s best views, taking in a different side of Gran Canaria. And of course, if you did want to snap a pic of the rocky mountain paths or views overlooking the sea, you can still pop a Valencia filter on it and share it online thanks to wi-fi access all over the island.
Bohemia Suites & Spa is only five-minutes to the beach, and the swanky feel doesn’t stop at all the fancy tech, with gold-topped pillars and a canopied pool bar.
Right around the corner is Hotel Riu Palace Maspalomas, with two big pools, a gourmet a la carte restaurant and close to Maspalomas’ famous sand dunes.
Seaside Hotel Sandy Beach is right next door to the beach, and has a luxury feel with private hot tub terraces and panoramic views of the sea.
