Fodor's Expert Review Boutique Hotel San Roque

Calle Esteban de Ponte 31, Garachico, Canary Islands, 38450, Spain Fodor's Choice

Museum-quality art by well-known painters lines the walls of this Bauhaus-inspired design property occupying a colonial palace in the old town. Each of the 20 rooms is uniquely decorated with collectable furniture, and there's a palm-fringed pool that's kept warm year-round. As you tour the public areas surrounding the traditional Canarian patio, don't forget to look up: the traditional astilla ("splinter") ceilings, fashioned out of interwoven twigs, are works of art in themselves.
