Local Area

The Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is an adults-only hotel (16+), located in the heart of the historic town of Tazacorte on the island of San Miguel de La Palma, the most north-westerly island of the Canary Islands, Spain.  Also known as La Palma, it is the most important agricultural area of the Canary Islands. Formerly a beautiful sugar plantation, the hotel has been lovingly restored to reflect its rich history and trade with Flanders, Andalusia and the West Indies. It was the first hotel built in the town, and is officially recognized as an “Emblematic Hotel” in the Canary Islands, a category reserved for those hotels which constitute part of the historical heritage of the islands.
 
The original “Casa Principal de Tazacorte” was subjected to an attentive restoration from 2010 to 2012. At the end of the 19th century, the sugar cane was replaced with the banana, so the new architecture was designed to harmoniously integrate into the landscape of a sea of bananas. New construction surrounding the house respected the original layout of the sugar plantation estate and the building typology in the area. The original chapel and luxurious bath house were retained.
 
The Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is a 20-minute walk (or 5-minute bus ride) to the beach. It is 41 kilometers west of the SPC-Santa Cruz de La Palma Airport and 37 kilometers west of Santa Cruz de la Palma. The city of Los-Alanos de Adriane is just 5 kilometers from the hotel and Fuencaliente (volcanoes) is 25 kilometers away.
