La Palma is the most northwesterly of the Canary Islands, which lie just off the coast of northern Africa. Known as the ‘Green Island’, its mountainous landscape is dotted with laurisilva and pine forests and its dramatic black sand beaches are peaceful spots for sunbathing.
A dusky pink building on the west coast of the island and a 2017 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice pick among the top 25 hotels in all of Spain, Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is a boutique spa hideaway, set in a carefully-renovated 17th-century sugar estate in historic Villa y Puerto de Tazacorte. Surrounded by botanical gardens, it looks out over the Atlantic Ocean and a sea of exotic banana plantations.
With a unique sense of eclectic style, the hotel has curated a collection of antique furnishings, chandeliers and paintings that are scattered throughout the bedrooms and the chic restaurant. Dine on authentic local dishes while you look out over the sea and hang out by the poolside or in the wellness centre, where you’ll find a sauna and a range of international treatments.
How to Get There
It's difficult to add to all that has been said previously. Stayed 11 nights in a standard room which really was far from standard. Large room with king size unusual antique frame bed with beautiful chandelier overlooking the lovely banana plantations. Large bathroom with bath and separate shower with bath robes, slippers and pool towels.
Breakfast had everything you could want all served on beautiful china.
The pool area was lovely and sheltered so very warm even in early April. A perfect place to relax after some super walking. A perfect island for walking ...great temperature at a higher level ... quite cool and then lovely and warm at sea level.
A perfect base for walking utilising the local bus service.
The owner obviously loves antiques: they are everywhere in the common areas and in the rooms. This gives the hotel a personal touch, which works well with the traditional architecture. Fabulous tropical garden which a nice change from all the banana fields.
Good restaurant serving Spanish and local specialties (slow service though).
Just back from a week at this fabulous hotel. Its right in the middle of a banana plantation in Tezacorte. The rooms are classy and the bed is extremely comfy. The decor is amazing throughout the hotel. The outside areas are beautiful, such fantastic plants and the pool is lovely (although rather chilly). Plenty of sunbeds and nice and quiet. The food is delicious, we stayed half board and loved every single dish we ate. The food is presented beautifully and the service was top quality. All the staff are excellent, very helpful, friendly and polite. The lovely receptionist sorted out short notice car hire for us and helped plan trips for us to see the best of the island. Room was cleaned to a very high standard. This hotel suits older people and/or people who want to enjoy a top quality hotel with top quality staff, facilities and food. I can't recommend it highly enough. The island is absolutely gorgeous too. What a beautiful place.
Beautiful hotel, a converted sugar plantation. The grounds are a tropical oasis , well maintained and the pool and surrounding area is lovely although not enough sun beds for all the guests .staff friendly, attentive and helpful.
Plenty of character with interesting artifacts in every room. The gardens are good too with an outdoor pool and an indoor Jacuzzi. The access road is interesting! Easy to miss the turning opposite the Tourist Information sign and then difficult to believe it is the right road. The other way in and out is just dirt part of the way. Tazacorte is a pleasant little town, but with few facilities. It is quite a drive to the beach, certainly too far to walk. I didn't think the room #1 justified the £400 pn B&B price tag for out of season. When our plane was delayed due to strong winds we came back to the hotel (taxi EU45) that room would have been £500! We took a cheaper room, #5, still a very nice room (EU350).
