You'll feel like royalty at the Gran Melia Palacio de Isora, which has extravagant architecture, lavish rooms with all the modern amenities and beautiful grounds on Tenerife Island where you're never far from a pool. With its massive dome, colonnaded walkways and gently splashing fountains, the four-story Palacio de Isora resembles something out of the "Thousand and One Nights." That's not even mentioning the infinity-edged swimming pool that meanders through the gorgeous grounds, the three other palm-shaded pools, or the waterpark that keeps the kids busy for hours. The spa lets you enjoy a massage in a private room or in an open-air cabana. The 609 rooms and suites, many of which gaze out at the island of La Gomera, have subtle color schemes with tropical tones here and there. LCD TVs with satellite channels add a luxurious feel, as do natural stone bathrooms with rainforest showerheads. Wi-Fi is available. Start the day with a complimentary breakfast buffet, and for other meals there are six restaurants serving everything from sushi and other Japanese favorites to paella and other dishes from the Iberian Peninsula. The dry cleaning, laundry and pressing service keeps you looking impeccable. Parking is free. The Palacio de Isora is on Tenerife's southern coast not far from the fishing village of Alcala. It's a short drive from Acantilados de Los Gigantes, the massive cliffs that rise more than 2,600 feet from the ocean. Tenerife South Reina Sofia International Airport is 24 miles southeast. The beachfront location is impossible to beat at the Gran Melia Palacio de Isora, which our guests say combines enchanting architecture, exclusive service and a range of amenities that includes one of the region's biggest swimming pools.
