Fodor's Expert Review Seaside Los Jameos Playa

Calle Marte 2, Puerto del Carmen, Canary Islands, 35510, Spain

César Manrique disciples were behind this giant colonial resort, where the tropical gardens, wooden balconies, and cane furniture all evoke old-school Havana. The soaring lobby atrium continues the tropical theme—you half expect parrots to be flying around—and the outdoor area has four pools, several shaded bars, and white villas with cobalt trim, softened by ruby bougainvillea. The large, comfortable rooms have blue patterned accents, and their balconies overlook the garden, pool, or beach. Be sure to visit the Canary Museum here, which has displays of traditional implements and costumes. There's a nude zone on the grounds.
