Even though we’ve waved goodbye to summer for another year, there’s still time to get away and experience a week or two of glorious sunshine. The perfect place to enjoy some winter sun is Maspalomas Winter Pride, which is now in its 4th year. The celebrations, which include live performances, pool parties and boat parties, take place from 6th-12th November and last year attracted over 50,000 visitors from across Europe. Take a look at some of the best hotels for Gran Canaria Winter Pride.
Gold Hotel Marina
The 3* Gold Star Marina, set in the heart of Playa Del Ingles, is an adult-only hotel located just 800m from the beach. There are two swimming pools at the hotel, both of which have sunbathing terraces (if you want to top your tan up), while you’ll also stay refreshed thanks to the pool bar. For those looking for something a little more luxurious, the hotel also has a raised terrace, offering great views of the pool area.
Breakfast is served buffet-style, (perfect for nursing a hangover) while you’ll also enjoy two restaurants that serve meals during lunch and dinner and a reception bar that serves snacks throughout the day.
This men-only resort is a popular choice among Pride visitors and it’s not hard to see why. Just 100m away is the lively Yumbo Centre where all the action takes place. Here you’ll find bars and nightclubs such as Mantrix and Sparkles that will have you dancing until the early hours.
The apartments all have their own balcony and you can take a dip in the large swimming pool whenever you feel like it (or enjoy a glass of bubbly at the pool bar). Maspalomas Beach is also just a short stroll away and you’ll find everything from camel rides, sand dunes and watersports here.
Located on the outskirts of Playa Del Ingles, these 3* adult-only apartments are perfect for those looking to combine their Pride celebrations with a relaxing holiday. Enjoy the best of both worlds with a freshwater swimming pool, sun terrace and in-house solarium and the lively Yumbo Center which is just a short walk away.
You’ll also enjoy regular entertainment in the Axel Lounge Garden in the form of themed events and parties while sports facilities are also provided if you wish to make your own entertainment.
