Read more about Sonnenland

Located in a quiet corner of Maspalomas, the suburb of Sonnenland (German for land of the sun) awaits weary holiday makers in need of rest and relaxation under the Canarian sun. Even with its cosy residential feel, the beaches and attractions of Maspalomas are just a short drive away.

Just a stone’s throw away from Sonnenland are a number of picture-perfect Canarian beaches, like the secluded Playa Mujeres, chilled out Playa de las Meloneras, or the sprawling Playa de Maspalomas.

Food & Drink
Nearby, you’ll find a number of local cafés offering Canarian favourites like papas arrugadas con salsa mojo (Canarian hassleback potatoes served with spicy sauce), potaje (watercress soup), and carajacas (livers marinated in a spicy sauce). Popular tipples include locally produced wines and beers to enjoy alongside your meals.

Open and friendly, the culture of Gran Canaria welcomes sun-starved holidaymakers from all backgrounds with open arms. Enjoy sun-soaked days sipping cocktails on the beach, playing around the pool, or dancing the night away in the resort centre of Maspalomas.

Nightlife around Sonnenland is quiet and laid-back, perfect for those who enjoy capping their evenings off with a gentle stroll through the local area. Or, if you prefer a night of dinner and dancing, the centres of Maspalomas and Playa de Ingles are just a short car ride away, promising a host of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs to get the party started.
