Hotel La Palma Princess & Spa details
Nestled in a quiet spot overlooking the ocean, the pool scene here is, in a word, gorgeous.
Life revolves around the pools at this secluded hideaway. There are 11 in total, criss-crossed with little bridges. They fan out between broad sun terraces dotted with tropical plants. And from its cliff-top perch, the pools enjoy amazing wide-angle seascapes. Add in lots of shaded areas and a choice of three bars, a pizzeria and restaurant and you’ve got one seriously luxurious place to chill.
The rest of the hotel is pretty impressive, too. Dressed in deep earthy colours that lend a warm traditional feel. Big sofas in the lobby make a comfy pit-stop in the main hub. Spreading out from there are smaller cream-washed buildings, where the bedrooms are located. It’s all quite laid-back and villagey. Big walk-in showers, as well as bathtubs, provide an added touch of luxury in the bedrooms.
When it comes to dining, you’re spoilt for choice. As well as the main restaurant – which serves up local specialities alongside grills, meats, pasta and salads – there is one tasting menu restaurant with Canarian/Spanish products.
As it’s an hour’s mountainous drive from the capital, Santa Cruz – you’ll need to book a car if you plan to go exploring. There are plenty of activities on-site, though – volleyball, waterpolo, tennis, even pistol shooting for those who like to keep active.
