salobre holidays - gran canaria
not just a golfer's paradise
Golf-lover? A Salobre holiday will suit you to a tee, and at The Co-operative Travel, we’ve a ‘hole’ lot of choice for you to pick from.
Offering an awe-inspiring collection of luxury hotels and whitewashed villas, all built on an undulating hillside, Gran Canaria holidays in Salobre aren’t, however, only about the greens and the tees.
Golfing widows and widowers might actually thank their partners for choosing Salobre, because while they’re heading off on another round, you can take a short drive into Meloneras or Maspalomas for quality beach time, or head for the bright lights of Puerto Rico, where shopping and entertainment are in plentiful supply.
Salobre’s centrepiece is, of course, its two 18-hole courses, both just a few steps from the front door of the resort’s hotels. From the moment you step onto the fairway, you’re almost guaranteed to be blessed with a bright, sunny sky which will bring out the best in your game.
You can even spoil the children on a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday, because they’ll love you for including days out to the nearby Mundo Aboriginal Park, Ocean Park, Palmitos Butterfly Park and Sioux City Wild West Park on your Salobre holiday itinerary.

luxury treatments in salobre
Meanwhile, you can indulge yourself in the ultimate post-tee time pick-me-up in the – count them – seven pools or luxury health spa of the Sheraton Salobre Hotel.
If you want a break from the golf, the countryside surrounding Salobre invites you to explore it on foot, and take off into the hills for a little peace and quiet. The summer sun of Gran Canaria is famously reliable, so off-peak times are best for this kind of activity, when the heat is less intense.
Salobre’s shopping facilities are not so well developed yet, so a trip into Maspalomas is recommended to make the most of your souvenir shopping oppportunites, as well as the Canaries’ tax-free status.
Food has an international flavour at the Salobre resort hotels, but again for a more authentic taste of Canarian cuisine, the nearby towns can be relied upon to deliver the goods, whether as tapas – the customary range of bite-sized appetisers – or a full meal, either of which heavily feature the islands’ fresh fish.
Salobre’s resort hotels tend to arrange their own night-time activities, so if you’re feeling the need for something less formal, again a trip into one of the nearby towns is your best option.
