Parador de El Hierro

Set between the mountains and the sea near Las Playas, this secluded hotel looks out over the Atlantic Ocean from its idyllic setting on the shore. The traditional-style hotel is surrounded by rock gardens featuring drago trees and coconut palms, and an outdoor swimming pool – a great place to cool off. The elegant, colonial-style interior opens out onto a terrace overlooking the ocean – most of the hotel’s rooms boast magnificent sea views, creating a relaxing and unforgettable atmosphere. There is also a gymnasium, jacuzzi, Turkish bath and sauna. The Parador's restaurant features creative Canary Island dishes, many based on freshly caught fish and locally grown produce.
