Services include an outdoor pool and a restaurant serving traditional Canarian cuisine.
Situated on the Costa Calma in the south of the island, this four-star hotel is located just 200 metres (656.1 feet) from the famous Sotavento Beach.

A look-out bar, restaurant, buffet and central outdoor pool complete the list of amenities.
