Located at the tip of the island, in the famous Las Palmas De Gran Canaria, the island’s capital, Hotel Santa Catalina is the perfect destination for visitors in search of the perfect mix of city and beach for their vacation. The hotel is situated in the centre of the Parque Doramas, an iconic park in the city surrounded by palm trees, which is also conveniently close to the main promenade. Just a few metres away, guests will have access to the main strip of restaurants, bars and clubs overlooking the ocean. If you want sea views and lush greenery, all within easy reach of the capital’s liveliest spots, we highly recommend the 5-star luxury Hotel Santa Catalina.
