SANTA MÓNICA SUITES HOTELS

Santa Mónica Suites Hotel is a modern, environmentally-conscious, superior four-star establishment. It combines its unparalleled location in the Maspalomas Dunes with modern facilities designed with state-of-the-art technology.

OUR ENVIRONMENT

The location of Santa Mónica Suites Hotel is one of the features that make it a special place. With direct access to the dunes and the beach, the hotel offers its guests the best views of one of Gran Canaria’s most impressive landscapes, the Maspalomas Dunes Natural Park.

The Maspalomas Dunes is a natural area located in the south of the island of Gran Canaria. It has the status of a special nature reserve and consists of a set of dunes with characteristic halophytic dune habitat unique to the Canary archipelago. This habitat is unique to the island of Gran Canaria, as there is no other dune system with the same characteristics on the island.

As a perfect contrast to the tranquility of the hotel’s location, just a few minutes’ walk away, guests can access a wide range of leisure activities, catering to both daytime and nighttime enthusiasts. Playa del Inglés is a tourist area that offers visitors a multitude of activities, usually concentrated in the main shopping centers: Centro Comercial Yumbo, Plaza de Masplomas, Centro Comercial Cita, and so on.

The climate in the south of Gran Canaria is considered one of the best in the world and is characterized by sunny skies and mild temperatures typically hovering around 25ºC.

SUSTAINABILITY

Committed to quality tourism in Gran Canaria and environmentally conscious, Santa Mónica Suites Hotel bases its values on sustainable development and outlines them in this sustainability management policy, which encompasses all areas of our business activities.

Among the measures implemented in our establishment in pursuit of continuous improvement and in support of our sustainability policy, we can highlight the following:

  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Protecting and supporting biodiversity
  • Protecting and respecting human rights
  • Protecting children

REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

At Santa Mónica Suites Hotel, we conduct an analysis of greenhouse gas emissions per guest, calculated based on the consumption of electricity, water, diesel, gas, chemicals, and high-emission food items in our menus.

2022 2023 DIF
Greenhouse gas emissions per customer/day 27.71 27.87 0.16

As observed in the summary table, this year we have increased by 0.16 points, primarily due to electricity consumption. We expect to decrease this figure with the actions we have taken in that regard.
