Bohemia Suites & Spa, Playa del Inglés

When we told him we lived in The Canary Islands, he said: “You MUST go and stay at Bohemia Suites & Spa in Gran Canaria – you’ll love it!” We rarely pass up strong personal recommendations, so we booked a two night stay at the hotel almost as soon as we returned from Crete. Alex had told us that there had been a huge investment…

Samsara Fusion Restaurant, Maspalomas

Oh my goodness! This was an absolute cracker! We were recommended to Samsara by Alex Bramwell, who runs Gran Canaria Info and what a recommendation it turned out to be! Samsara describes itself as an “Asian fusion” restaurant. It’s located in Maspalomas, which is the slightly more upmarket resort next to Playa del Inglés in Gran Canaria. It’s very large, but despite that booking is essential. The whole place is a feast for the eyes from the moment you arrive.…

La Villa de Aguimes, Gran Canaria

Agüimes is a beautiful traditional example of a municipal town in the Canary Islands, and only a short drive from Gran Canaria’s airport. The parish church of San Sebastian is an obvious landmark to aim for when approaching the town of Agüimes, the historic centre was clearly signposted and we found a parking space easily. The Parroquial de San Sebastían was built in three phases, the first of which started in 1796 and the third ended in 1940. Gothic, Neo-Classical…
