Gloria Palace Hotel in San Agustin is home to the very first spa on the island of Gran Canaria.
The Thalassotherapia zone offers treatments, massages to get rid of the aches and pains, plus the get in shape pool. After receiving your fluffy dressing gown, towel and spa shoes, you are shown the way to the most relaxing place.
There is a juice and water bar as you enter, then a place to leave your towel as you step your feet into the tranquil salt water.
First up are the jacuzzi beds, which help relax the muscles and give you a taste of the next couple of hours. Don't plan too much for after your visit, as you will feel totally de-stressed and maybe a little sleepy. Fountain jets pummel the knots out of your upper back and the salt water makes it easy to just float over to the next zone of the large pool.
Lounge beds surround the pool area, so that if you wish to do so, you can have a lay down and maybe even a siesta (I know I did).
For 20€ per person the Get in Shape pool is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours and a great start to relaxing into your holiday.
