Fodor's Expert Review Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide

Cañadas del Teide, La Orotava, Canary Islands, 38300, Spain

This mountain retreat may be an eyesore, but it occupies a privileged position as the only hotel located within the park. Guest rooms, outfitted with dowdy traditional furniture, make up for their interiors with views of the intriguing rock formations of Las Cañadas plateau, at the foot of Mt. Teide. Log fires burn in the lounges in winter. At the mountain-view restaurant (not at the tourist-packed snack bar/terraza, whose food is overpriced and borderline inedible), friendly waitstaff in folk costumes serve tasty Canarian cuisine. Try the puchero canario or the conejo en salmorejo.
