Luxury timeshare at Anfi since ‘88
Founded in 1988 by the Norwegian entrepreneur, Björn Lyng, Anfi Del Mar is at the forefront of luxury holiday accommodation on the South-West coast of Gran Canaria. Anfi first opened its doors in 1993 and over the next ten-years a further 4 clubs were constructed to provide first-class holidays to guests from all over the world. Carved out of the interior of the island from volcanic rock in Mogan to the South-West of the island, Anfi Del Mar was created to evoke a natural harmony with the local surroundings.
As of today (2016) Anfi counts over 33,000 families worldwide amongst their members, with many more visiting via RCI, you’ll most likely pull up a sun lounger next to a European as that’s where the vast majority of members come from. Famous faces have graced the Anfi stage over previous years and the current face of Anfi Del Mar is none other than European and World Cup winner David Silva, who was born locally in nearby Arguineguin.
