Club Hotel Riu, Gran Canaria, Spain

The perfect destination for those looking for action-packed days, the Club Hotel Riu is situated right next to the beach and promises guests gorgeous views of the ocean. Perfect for both families and couples, the complex is full of exciting things to do and offers a 24 hour programme so you’ll never be bored – day or night.

The Paseo Costa Canaria coastal path runs alongside the resort and leads guests to various local beauty spots, including the Maspalomas dunes, Mogan harbour, the Episcopal Palace and the Playa de Amadores. The ancient town of Anguimes is close by, too, for any visitors who want to soak up some local culture.

For those who are content to stay on site, though, there is still plenty on offer, including shuffleboard, mini golf, rifle shooting and all kinds of watersports. Lined with palm trees and overlooking the azure ocean, the hotel’s outdoor infinity pool is a great way to relax after a day of activities.
