Sunk between sun decks and palms, dipping between day beds and cacti, the seven heated pools at the Salobre Hotel Resort & Serenity cascade toward the plains, creating a serene but spectacular terracing that children absolutely adore. Loaded with design touches – chic globe-lights in the hotel’s wood-clad main building, Bali-beds by the pool, marble sinks and darkwood décor in the bathrooms – the Salobre Hotel Resort oozes sophisticated cool, yet the service here is as warm as the sunbaked hills that surround it. There are 313 light and airy rooms and suites at the resort, each with floor-to-ceiling sliding-doors, opening onto a private enclosed balcony or terrace. Here guests can enjoy the last of the evening sun over a pre-dinner G&T.

Guests at Salobre Hotel Resort have four excellent restaurants to choose from, from indoor and al fresco fine-dining at Camaleon to traditional Spanish tapas at Perenquen. After dinner, guests can enjoy drinks in any one of the Salobre Hotel Resort's 3 bars, with a bar service also available at the resort’s beach house at Maspalomas, a 7-minute, free shuttle bus ride from the hotel running several times per day.

About Canary Islands

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Canary Islands includes a selection of four and five star beach resorts which cater for families and couples alike. The Canary Islands can be found sitting off the western coast of Africa in the Atlantic Ocean. Warmed by year-round sunshine, the Canaries feature otherworldly landscapes of volcanic craters, lava deserts and cute coves with black-sand beaches. Meanwhile, steep hillsides and terraced farmland gives way to peaceful fishing villages and characterful old towns. In the west of the archipelago are the mountainous islands of Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera. Expect black-sand beaches and buzzing resorts along Tenerife's coastline whilst the interior is dominated by the dormant Mount Teide volcano. Meanwhile the three smaller islands remain relatively unspoiled, with landscapes including terraced hillsides, craggy cliffs and subtropical rainforests. The eastern isles consist of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote, each with a unique atmosphere and plenty of attractions. Gran Canaria is home to sprawling resorts as well as stunning scenery with forests, mountains and sand dunes; Fuerteventura is an arid and sparsely populated island with a desert-like landscape and long stretches of white sand beaches; while Lanzarote is a rugged island where lava flows have solidified to create a lunar landscape which contrasts with sandy beaches and green valleys. Due to their location in the Atlantic Ocean just 60 miles away from the coast of Morocco, the Canary Islands' cultures fuse African, Latin American and European influences, creating a unique identity which is quite different to that of the Iberian Peninsula. Contrary to popular belief, there is no want for authenticity here....

Gastronomy of the Canary Islands

Due to the geographical location, gastronomy in the Canary Islands incorporates elements of Spanish, African and Latin American cuisine. A staple of Canarian cuisine is fish, which may be grilled, baked, salted or dried in the sun, along with shellfish which is also abundant. Bananas and tropical fruits are all grown across the islands, whilst rum, Malvasía wine and goat's cheeses are also produced. Key ingredients include ‘Gofio’ (cornmeal which is used in bread and stews), ‘Mojo’ (a sauce which contains either coriander or chili peppers and is frequently served with fish and meat) and ‘Papas arrugadas’ (a kind of jacket potato which is cooked in salt water). Typical dishes include ‘Sancocho’ (boiled fish served with potatoes), ‘Puchero canario’ (a hearty stew made with meat and vegetables) and ‘Bienmesabe’ (an almond cream dessert).

Climate of the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands' year-round sunshine, clear skies and spring-like temperatures make them a suitable holiday destination for all seasons. Winters are mild with average temperatures of around 17 degrees, whilst summers are warm with temperatures of around 24 degrees. Most of the islands are cooler and wetter in the northeast thanks to the trade winds which prevent the temperatures from getting too hot in the summer.
