Gran Canaria's Best Pools: The Radisson Blu

Best Gran Canaria Swimming Pools: The Radisson Blu swimming pool Best Gran Canaria Swimming Pools: The Radisson Blu swimming pool

The Radisson Blu hotel at Patalavaca in south Gran Canaria is one of the island's smartest and has a pool to match.

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...

Radisson Blu 0030

It's big enough to never feel crowded and designed so that you always have a peaceful swim


Radisson Blu pool and palm trees

All good pools have palm trees, but not too many to shade the sun decks


Radisson Blu 0050

Right on the coast, this pool that gets a cool breeze and lots of sunshine all day long


Radisson Blu 0049

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
