Gran Canaria's newest 5-star hotel

The Gran Canaria Info team were lucky enough to get an advance tour of the brand new Radisson Blu Resort & Spa at Puerto de Mogán. Here's the photos and what we thought ...

Thank you Enrique and Barbara :-)

Radisson Blue Mogan garden

The new Radisson is so new that the water is still going into the pools and the furniture into the suites. The flowers in the new gardens, however, are already blooming in the Mogán sunshine.

Walking into the reception, it's hard to believe that there was nothing on the site a year ago except a few lizards. If it's run as well as it's been built, this is going to be a spectacular place.

Plush rooms with a view

The first thing that struck us is how clever the overall hotel design is. There are almost 400 rooms and 30 suites on three floors and the hotel is shaped like an elongated doughnut with big pool and garden areas in the middle. The shape means that almost all the rooms face the central pool areas. It gives the place an intimate feeling that is rare for a big hotel. Nobody gets stuck down a corridor and everybody gets a view.

The rooms are big and decorated in an elegant modern style with big comfy beds (we tested them), big bathrooms and those huge rain showers that mean nobody ever wants to reach for their fluffy towel. Each room has a big terrace attached and the low rise design and almost constant sunshine in Mogán means that everyone gets their own personal sun trap.

Now, there are terraces and there are terraces. What you want in your outdoor space is room to stretch out on a lounger while someone makes you a cold drink.

At 25 square metres each, the Radisson terraces tick all the boxes; sunshine, space and a pool view. The drinks are up to you. 

Climb, run and stretch

Not everyone wants to spend their entire holiday horizontal and the Radisson has gone out of its way to cater to active people. 

There's a gym of course, but also a running track through the gardens, a Tufteparken for stretching out and building those core muscles, a full tennis court, paddle court, beach volleyball court, and a climbing wall big enough to look pretty intimidating. The two pools are also big enough for a few laps if you feel like an early morning swim. 

Poolside dining

Why have a restaurant when you can have four? And why not give each one a big terrace. And put one right by the pool. And add a smoothie and cocktail bar just for good measure. Put it this way, guests won't go hungry for lack of an outdoor table. 

Relax, there's a spa

It's blue, it's peaceful and there's plenty of space for lying around and looking out of the big windows.

Tip of the day

  • Tip Of The Day: Avoid Bank Card Charges By Paying In Euros
    Tip Of The Day: Avoid Bank Card Charges By Paying In Euros

    Save money and avoid rip-off bank charges while in Gran Canaria by paying in euros when using your credit or debit card.

    Many bars and restaurants in Gran Canaria, and in almost all European holiday destinations, give you the option of paying in euros or in your home currency. Opting for your own currency, while it may seem like the safer option, can add as much as 5% to the bill as it triggers dynamic currency conversion. 

    DCC basically means that the exchange rate is calculated at point of sale rather than by your bank. It allows you to see the total cost of the transaction in your own currency but adds up to 5% to the total because it uses a terrible exchange rate. 

    Since the extra money is shared between your bank and the merchant, some places will automatically bill you in your own currency and hope you don't notice. You have the legal right to refuse and void the transaction should this happen. 

    ATMs too

    The same applies when taking money out of ATM machines in Gran Canaria (and anywhere in Europe); Always choose the local currency option to avoid losing money to poor exchange rates.

    If you opt for the local currency option, using bank ATMs is often the cheapest and safest way of getting euros in Gran Canaria. It's far safer than having a big pile of euros hidden in your room or tucked into your shorts.
