    Our opinion

    The Parador de El Hierro is an exclusive, secluded hotel in the Canary Islands’ least developed destination. Right on the seafront, with volcanic mountains behind, this Parador embraces the best of the Canary landscapes.

    Hotel description

    Parador de El Hierro is a three star hotel the stretches out onto the sandy shore of the exclusive island of El Hierro in the Canary Islands. Its dynamic, fascinating location is rich in natural beauty, and is complemented by the simple luxuries housed within the Parador’s walls. The white-washed hotel stands out against the black sand beach and the steep ridge of the volcanic Las Playas Mountains behind it, a landscape which captures the essence of the tropical, exclusive El Hierro, the least developed of the Canary Islands. The crystal clear azure waters make this an ideal destination for diving enthusiasts and those who enjoy swimming in the sea. The colonial-style terracotta-coloured roof tiles, white-washed façade, and dark-wood framed windows immediately establish this hotel as a comfortable and attractive idyllic retreat. Inside, the design is primarily traditional, with a colourful ambience typical of the Canary Islands. Stone pillars, plush furnishings, and wooden chairs and tables break up the spacious public rooms, and in the 47 bedrooms, the soothing blue palette brings the freshness of the sea inside. Most rooms have excellent sea views, and all are graced with the gentle murmur of the waves to help send you off to sleep at night. A seasonal outdoor swimming pool is open to cool the hotel’s guests in the summer, on a terrace which juts out into the sea. The hotel’s restaurant has a homely feel, serving delicious local produce, with intriguing traditional furnishings. The informal bar serves drinks late into the evening. To fully enjoy your sublime scenery, we would recommend taking a coastal walk under the refreshing shower of spray from the sea as it crashes against the rocks. The island of El Hierro itself is home to a wealth of exotic species and green subtropical vegetation, which surrounds the three star Parador de El Hierro. Alternatively, while away the hours in the sun on the dramatic black sand beach. This holiday is best suited to guests looking to experience the calm and tranquillity of an off-the-beaten-track destination, and a luxurious return to nature.
