The Abora Continental by Lopesan Hotels gives you peaceful surroundings and easy access to Playa del Ingles all at once. This is a high-rise property with a tropical feel – thanks to an envelope of tropical palms and shrubs – and it’s just a short walk from the resort’s stellar sandy beach and its collection of shops, bars and restaurants.
Outdoors, a supersized swimming pool weaves through sunny terraces, complete with waterfalls and a side-order of loungers and thatched parasols. There’s a shallow number just for children, as well, and a handful of whirlpool baths to soak in. Family activities include shuffleboard, rifle shooting and darts, while kids-only games are organised daily at the children’s club.
You can tuck into international dishes in the buffet restaurant, which serves favourites like grilled meat and pasta alongside local Spanish specialities at mealtimes. Expect regular themed corners, too, with delicacies from the likes of Asia and Mexico laid out. A lounge-style bar dishes up snacks during the day, and the poolside bar – Flamingo – does a la carte light bites and afternoon tea and cake.
The night-time scene here is lively, with professional shows most nights, and a rotation of regular local dancers and live musicians. There’s plenty of spots to enjoy laid-back evening tipples, too, if you fancy something more chilled-out.
