Once upon a time, Santa Cruz de La Palma was a major port in the Spanish Empire. You get a sense of its importance by strolling along its Avenida Marítima - where you will find this four-star hotel, in a restored building that's a cultural monument. The hotel opened in 2019, but you get an idea of what it must have been like in 1919 thanks to the sensitive makeover. It's a similar feeling as at the nearby Apartamentos Ki-Tapenas, a revamped property with the same ownership and also in an iconic building. Both offer offer guests a comfortable, leisurely connection with the past.
