Puerto Rico

Situated on the blazing southern coast of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands, Puerto Rico is a popular resort town brimming with luxury hotels and spas. Many hotels in Puerto Rico are nestled in the rocky verges which reflect the volcanic origins of the island, offering unbeatable views of stunning blue ocean. Originally a small fishing town, Puerto Rico still boasts two picturesque harbours. Today, however, the main attractions of the town are the bustling Europa Shopping Centre, the spacious golf resorts and iconic stretches of sandy coastline. Gran Canaria is by no means the largest of the Canary Islands, but its balmy temperatures make it one of the most popular, attracting around 4 million visitors a year.

Getting Around Gran Canaria, Canary Islands shouldn't be a difficult task. Bus Service 91 operates a regular service from Gran Canaria airport to Puerto Rico between 06:15am and 20:15pm, and many of the hotels in Puerto Rico are situated close enough to the major attractions to get around on foot. However, for those who want the freedom to explore the stunning landscape around the town, several reputable hire car companies provide a good option for tourists.

There are many hotels in Puerto Rico for the ultimate revitalising vacation and many of these hotels provide top quality spa facilities and treatments. Gloria Palace promises to help guests unwind with a range of aromatherapy massage treatments, crystal skin peels and bubble baths with essential oils. Sheraton Salobre Golf Resort & Spa combines modern, boutique design with classic wellness treatments and golf facilities for a chic leisure break. The 24-hour fitness centre and heated outdoor pools also make this the ideal place to kick off a healthy routine.

For a self-catering break with a difference, luxury houseboats are the latest vogue accommodation for visitors to the Canary Islands. Houseboats in Puerto Rico Marina offer a combination of comfort and flexibility, with pristine kitchens, internet access and entertainment facilities. For a charming family-friendly getaway, a range of holiday villas are available. Villa Serendipity is one such villa, tucked away in the hills of Puerto Rico, offering panoramic views of the town from the private garden, which also boasts a picnic area and BBQ facilities.
