The accommodation is located in a privileged area a few meters away from the urban garden "Pino Apolinario" where you can buy vegetables on Mondays and Thursdays, Farray square with several cafes and tapas bars, and the gorgeous Las Canteras promenade with a total length of approximately 4 km, and considered by many as one of the best urban beaches in the world. A few minutes further you will find an even more varied offer of leisure and gastronomy possibilities.
Unlike other areas of the island typically frequented by visitors, the capital of Gran Canaria is mostly home of the local population. That gives it to a character very close to the identity of the native canarians. It also offers multiple recreational opportunities such as water sports (surfing, snorkeling, diving, canoeing, etc.), walks, paragliding and a rich cultural offer such as concerts, shopping, museums, theaters and cinemas. Gastronomy is also almost limitless as the islands are a place of transit and settlement of many travelers who decided to turn Gran Canaria in their permanent home. Therefore, we can find some of the best restaurants on the island with a varied cuisine (Japanese, Mexican, Lebanese, Indian, Argentine, etc.) and an extensive native Canarian cuisine. All this without sacrificing the beaches that offers the south of the island and the wonderful mountain scenery 30 minutes away by car, or with public transport.
