Santa Monica Suites Hotel 

Pool dipping, sand-between-the-toes escape

An environmentally conscious hotel wrapped around Maspalomas’ undulating sand dunes.

Beachfront on Playa del Inglés, Santa Mónica Suites Hotel offers barefoot escape, contemporary rooms and a large pool with sun loungers dipped in fresh waters. At this minimalist pad, you can slink from the sauna to the Chill-Out terrace or return from sun-kissed beach days to dinner in an amber-hued restaurant overlooking the pool.

Why we love Santa Monica Suites Hotel

  • Turn up the heat at the Finnish sauna, complete with tranquil dune views.

  • Try your hand at sandboarding over the Maspalomas Dunes.

  • Grab a board and leash and learn how to surf at Playa del Inglés.

  • Just a 15-minute walk to Yumbo Centrum’s outdoor bars and nightclubs.
