This classic mountain retreat occupies a privileged position—this is the only hotel in this huge park—and its guest rooms overlook the intriguing rock formations of the Las Cañadas plateau, at the foot of Mt. Teide. The large, inviting rooms have wood floors and classic furnishings. Log fires burn in the lounges in winter. At the mountain-view restaurant, friendly waitstaff in folk costumes serve tasty Canarian cuisine. Try the puchero canario (Canary stew) or the conejo en salmorejo (rabbit in tomato soup).
