With less than 200 rooms, big rooms and terraces (including some spectacular penthouses), and a privileged position right by the sea, the Radisson Blu Resort Gran Canaria is an upmarket favourite amongst Gran Canaria's many Scandinavian and British fans; So much so that some of them have bought their rooms.
The Radisson Blu is also one of the few south Gran Canaria hotels with a long history: When it first opened as the Steigenberger, guests arrived by boat from Arguineguín rather than by road.
The Radisson Blu pool is in our best Gran Canaria pool section because of this...
It's big enough to never feel crowded and designed so that you always have a peaceful swim
All good pools have palm trees, but not too many to shade the sun decks
Right on the coast, this pool that gets a cool breeze and lots of sunshine all day long
The water is warm all throughout the year because of the sun (and a bit of help) and there are deep bits where you can actually swim
Here's what the pool looks like from under the water
It's got an island made of decking: How cool is that?
There are comfy loungers all over the place and plenty of spares
How's this for a post-swim view from the lawn under the palm trees?
The stylish poolside bar has comfy chairs
And if you ever get bored of this...
Then you are two minutes walk from Patalavaca beach
And five minutes walk along the shore to Anfi beach
