Parador de El Hierro - Modern hotel facing the Atlantic (4*)
El Hierro, the smallest and least populated of the Canary Islands, lies to the southwest of the archipelago, and was long thought by Europeans to mark the end of the known world. The island’s landscape is rugged and volcanic, and the Parador de El Hierro sits on a narrow shelf above the sea at the foot of steep mountains.Whilst the setting is wild and awe-inspiring, this elegant hotel with its various terraces offers the guest a cheerful and friendly atmosphere and every possibility for rest and relaxation.
Communal areas are bright and airy and decorated in typical Canarian style with mahogany features. Many of the Parador’s bedrooms benefit from incredible views over the Atlantic Ocean and majestic mountain range. Rooms with sea views also benefit from balconies, inviting guests to soak up the sun whilst looking out over the spectacular open sea.
Facilities include a fascinating garden featuring much of the island’s autonomous flora, and a tranquil swimming pool area as well as a sauna and Turkish bath, offering maximum relaxation.
El Hierro’s location close to Africa and its lengthy trade history with South America is reflected in the local dishes, many of which draw inspiration from the typical cuisine of these lands. The Parador’s restaurant features a wide range of dishes including Viejas (fishcakes served with a limpet and sea urchin sauce), Caldo de queso herreño (a soup containing cheese, egg and potato) and Alforsiños con burgados (local fish served with periwinkles).
Parador's 'Gastrobar' concept
Extensive lunch and dinner menus are served in the 'Gastrobar', which offers a range of meal options from light snacks to 3 course dinners in an informal but well serviced environment. We hope you enjoy this new experience.
