Accommodation

Our accommodation is located in Puerto Mogan with easy access to both mountainous and coastal terrain. We have specifically chosen this accommodation as they are easily accessible by bike, provide plenty of space to allow you to relax and recover at the end of each days riding as opposed to having a smaller hotel style room.

Accommodation is half board (including drinks with evening meals) on a twin share basis. The additional kitchen facilities in your apartment will prove useful for preparation of additional food outside of breakfast and dinner included with the package. We’ve found that at our base in the alps having these additional facilities has been welcome over the years to allow preparation of personalized energy drinks and food. We have chosen these apartments specifically to provide you with as many facilities as possible during your stay.

Each apartment has a spacious terrace providing further opportunity to relax and recover post ride. The terrace also provides plenty of space for bike maintenance and storage. The hotel are more than happy for us to take bikes to the rooms.

Nutrition has an essential role to play during any cycling trip. The food in the restaurant is varied and well suited to sustain your riding throughout your stay.

The complex has 3 pools and a spa. The spa provides massage facilities, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and has ice bucket cubicles all of which can be enjoyed as an option during your stay and be especially welcome on recovery day.

Puerto Mogan is located on the quieter west side of Gran Canaria and after a day of riding the center is an easy 5 minute stroll from the hotel with a selection of really great little cafes and bars to relax in before dinner.
