The rolling hills of the Monte León area surround Casa Leòn, which offers secluded accommodation with views of Gran Canaria's sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean.
Built into the hillside, the hotel occupies a modern villa-style property surrounded by palm trees and colourful blooms, and is within a 15-minute drive of Palmitos Park, with its botanical garden, aviary and aquarium, and Maspalomas, "Gran Canaria's most famous holiday resort" (Lonely Planet). Anfi Tauro Golf, featuring an 18-hole course, and the fishing port of Puerto de Mogán, which exudes "an air of opulence and charm" (Lonely Planet) are around 30 minutes' drive away. Las Palmas, the island's capital with its historic old quarter, takes about 50 minutes to reach by car.
The hotel centres around a lobby courtyard lined with marble and home to a bar with an open fire, and extends to plant-lined terraces offering panoramic views. There's a restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows serving regional dishes made from local ingredients, as well as a Hawaiian-themed spot for cocktails and dancing. Guests can relax in the outdoor infinity pool with its hot tub and countryside views, play tennis on the clay court, and take time out in the spa, which provides a range of treatments (fees may apply). Other facilities include a fitness studio, table tennis and badminton, plus walking poles, mountain bike rentals, and yoga and pilates lessons (surcharge).
Rich fabrics, wood furnishings and marble bathrooms characterise Casa Leòn's guestrooms, which overlook the gardens or the mountains and come with TV, free Wi-Fi and mini bars. Higher-tariff rooms have floor-length windows with garden access and sea views, while some have balconies with sun loungers. The hotel's suites include separate living/dining space and sofabeds.
