Luxury hotel holiday Hotel Hacienda de Abajo La Palma

Set amidst banana trees on the rocky, black-sand coast of La Palma, the Hotel Hacienda de Abajo is an Emblematic hotel with a very traditionally Canarian feel and five star facilities.

Traditional local food is served in the excellent restaurant, just as every inch of the hotel pays homage to the beauty of the Canary Islands.

Bananas and tropical fruits are all grown across the islands, whilst rum, Malvasía wine and goat's cheeses are also produced. Key ingredients include ‘Gofio’ (cornmeal which is used in bread and stews), ‘Mojo’ (a sauce which contains either coriander or chili peppers and is frequently served with fish and meat) and ‘Papas arrugadas’ (a kind of jacket potato which is cooked in salt water). Typical dishes include ‘Sancocho’ (boiled fish served with potatoes), ‘Puchero canario’ (a hearty stew made with meat and vegetables) and ‘Bienmesabe’ (an almond cream dessert).
