Hotel Riu Palmeras is a very special hotel for the RIU chain, being the first to appear in Gran Canaria. Now, after a complete remodelling, it reopens its doors with a totally renovated image and an upgrading of its category to Riu Palace Palmeras. This is another example of how important every hotel is for us. Even though we’ve opened new hotels in Maldivas and Madrid this year, we never forget the first hotels that left a mark on the chain.

The result of the remodelling is a new Riu Palace category hotel

We know you’ve been waiting for months to know and see the results of the remodelling of this classic hotel that has served as a holiday retreat for families, friends and couples for years. Now it’s ready to continue being your home, though in an enhanced version so that you can enjoy yourself like you deserve during your vacation.

Before and after the remodelling

One of the most noteworthy changes in the hotel is the fact that the old bungalows have been substituted by one single-storey building with 40 bedrooms, located by the garden and connected to the main seven-floor building. As a result, the hotel retains its essence and continues to offer rooms at ground level. Both buildings combine a total of 274 rooms available for you to stay in.

How are the rooms?

One of the areas where the remodelling paid particular attention is the rooms. We wanted to bring the sea into your room so that you feel immersed in your beach destination. For this reason, the decor combines blue hues for the textiles and walls. This ensures that during your rest and relaxation time, you’ll feel surrounded by the peacefulness of the sea. In addition, the wood hues add a touch of warmth.Needless to say, each room is tastefully decorated with an air of sophistication.
