Fodor's Expert Review Arrecife Gran Hotel

Av. Fred Olsen 1, Arrecife, Canary Islands, 38550, Spain

This 17-story glass tower is a bit of an eyesore on an island where low-rises are the norm, but once inside, it's hard to hate the bird's-eye views from the rooms and the inviting, comfy communal areas. Rooms are decidedly more bland with dark-wood floors and unstylish furniture. The breakfast area has stunning ocean views, as does the pool, which is covered in glass. Take to the skies with a meal in the Restaurante Altamar where Mediterranean dishes come with possibly the best vistas on the island.
