  • About this holiday

    In a unique clifftop location surrounded by verdant gardens, the four star Parador de La Palma offers sensational sea views and a charming style and ambience that is typical of the Canary Islands. We would recommend including the Parador as part of a longer luxury tour around the Islands, spending a few days taking in the beach and magnificent landscape of La Palma, before moving on to El Hierro, La Gomera, and Tenerife. For coastal holidays in the Canaries, the Parador de La Palma is a sophisticated, traditional, and welcoming retreat.

    Our opinion

    The four star Parador de La Palma is in an excellent seafront location with magnificent panoramic views. Inside, the traditional style unique to the Canary Islands pervades, and makes this the perfect destination for a truly comfortable holiday in the sun.

    Hotel description

    The four star Parador de La Palma is located just south of the capital of La Palma, in the Canary Islands. Designed with hints of traditional Spanish and Canarian style in mind, this hotel holds a prime position overlooking the sea, with verdant gardens that take you closer to the water’s edge. The charming, rustic air of this property has the feel of old-world luxury, and transports guests back to a more traditional Canarian lifestyle, with cosy rooms and a focus on the magnificent landscape around them. This hotel is ideal for a short stay by the beach in the Canary Islands, and offers a much less touristy experience than mainland Spain. The El Zumacal area is just south of the island’s main port, but within easy reach of the many untouched natural areas, including deep ravines, dense woods, volcanoes, and lava formations. This enchanting four star hotel is surrounded by a vast garden of fruit trees and native plants through which guests can stroll, along paved pathways and across wooden bridges. The white- and pink-washed façade and terracotta roof, while simple and contemporary, is reminiscent of old Spanish villas, but with a quirky Canarian touch. With this hilltop position and magnificent views, Parador guests can indulge in the natural beauty of the La Palma Biosphere Reserve, which is captured inside with a natural colour palette and very traditional decoration. White-clothed tables in the restaurant add a touch of elegance that mirrors the high quality of the local food. Speciality ingredients include local meats, locally sourced fresh fish, and tropical fruits, all of which are accompanied by La Palma wine. During the summer months, an outdoor swimming pool with loungers, parasols, and magnificent views across the cliffs and Atlantic Ocean, is open for guests’ enjoyment. Leisurely sip drinks in the evening on the terrace or in the bar, after a day exploring beautiful La Palma. The fantastic local landscape is perfect for activities such as hiking and cycling, and the renowned clarity of the sky at night entices star-gazers. This delightful hotel is best suited to those looking to explore the varied cultural attractions of the Canary Islands as part of a longer luxury touring holiday.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    On the small island of La Palma, the best attractions are part of the diverse areas of natural landscape. Travel down to Fuencaliente to see the dramatic volcanoes, the lighthouses, or stop off in a winery. Follow the volcano route around the island to walk in the deep craters. Navigate your way through the dense Los Tilos forest, or relax on the black sand of Puerto Naos Beach on the west coast of the island. Perhaps the greatest beauty spot on the island is the Caldera de Taburiente National park: pine forests and walls of stone surrounding the caldera itself. For something more eclectic, you may want to pay a visit to the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory, which makes the most of La Palma’s beautiful clear skies. Closer to the Parador de La Palma, spend time in the island’s capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma, exploring its pretty old town.
