    *RINCÓN DE TRIANA: A good restaurant pick in the area of the Canteras beach quarter. It is not at the promenade and it does not provide any views, however the nice culinary experience makes this place worth a visit as a nice alternative.

    An iconic hotel in a dream setting

    For over a century, the Santa Catalina, a Royal Hideaway Hotel has been a privileged witness to the history of the island of Gran Canaria, famous for its white sand and black lava beaches. Ever since it opened in 1890, it has been a landmark of the city’s social life. It has hosted some of the most important people of the late 19th, 20th and first generation of 21st centuries, all of whom have enhanced it with their culture and talent.

    Glamour, authenticity and exquisiteness are part of the essence of the hotel, which has attracted great national and international personalities from its beginnings to stay in its elegant 204 rooms with views of the city or garden.

    Comfort and seclusion in an unsually large private area for a city centre, surrounded by the typical island flora, the collonial design and a large & stylish roof top with 2 swimming pools available are the strongest characteristic features, only eclipsed by the beauty of its setting on a beautiful garden  at the shores of the Atlantic.

    A classical style hotel, where an exclusivity is fundamental.

    It enjoys 2 restaurants and a lovely terrace-bar on the garden floor which we highly recommend.

    It also provides a nice piano bar with a collonial flavour of the hotel entrance with views to the very beautiful fountain.

    Come to dine to the heart of Gran Canaria, just 20 minutes drive from Las Palmas.

    The very ancient castillian’ style San Juan village and San Francisco village are both enclosed within the Telde municipality, which is the second biggest town in Gran Canaria.

    Both San Juan & San Francisco villages are towed away from all the surrounding urban areas and seem to suddenly bring you to Cuba, or to any Spanish colonial village from the XVI century. Actually the flora and all the sympathy in Gran Canaria has a flavour of the Caribbean islands, and the land has the colours of Africa, specifically of Morocco.

    Maybe least appealing, or adventurous to mention, but important to remember: This is not just Europe as everyone realizes, but one of te most, laidback, genuine and safe locations within the EU, like any other spot in the Canary Islands.

    From TASCA FLAMBOYAN we can simply say it is a lovely tapas-bar with well looked-after details,  and a very well-run cuisine.

    It is a nice experience, both to sit inside (recommended during lunch when hot outside) or prefferably to come for dinner and take a seat at one of the quiet outdoor tables, having a nice glass of wine and some original tapas while you contemplate a truly begone atmosphere of the plaza surrounded by Ficus tres.

    It all makes you feel completely in armony with Gran Canaria.

    Ps. Don’t forget to plan a 30 minutes easy walk around the pedestrian-connected San Juan & San Francisco villages. We recommend it before sunset and before dinner.
