Situated in the peaceful resort of San Agustín, the Gloria Palace San Agustín Thalasso & Hotel lies at approximately 600m from the sheltered beaches
of San Agustín and Playa de las Burras. This peaceful, elegant resort has always been a favourite destination for those travelling with families or travellers seeking a more select holiday atmosphere.
Entertainment is plentiful and there are an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops in the resort and along the scenic sea front promenade that skirts the coast - a wonderful place to go for a stroll and sit down with a drink to enjoy the lovely sea views. The San Agustín shopping centre, situated a short walk from the hotel, also provides additional shopping and wining and dining opportunities. The nearby casino will add a little flutter to evening entertainment and for those who consider that no holiday is complete without a turn around the greens, there are two golf courses, Maspalomas Golf and Lopesan Meloneras Golf, about a 10 minute drive away from the hotel.
The neighbouring resort of Playa del Inglés provides a wealth of entertainment opportunities if you are looking for the heavy partying and nocturnal sprees for which it is renowned. Lying just a bit further along the coast, the beautiful sand dunes of Maspalomas are a sight to behold and offer camel rides across the dunes, secluded nudist beaches or lovely sights of the palm grove and natural lagoon.
Windsurfers will be in their element in the windsurfing hot spot of Bahía Feliz, which lies just to the north of San Agustín and is particularly popular during the winter months. Children will love the cowboy and Indian extravaganza of the mock-western town of Sioux City in nearby Cañon del Águila.
