OVERVIEW

Roughly equidistant to both the airport and the island's capital, Santa Cruz de La Palma, the four-star Hotel Las Olas offers the perfect base to explore the island. If you prefer to stay put and unwind, you can always pack lighter; especially if you dare to bare at the hotel's naturist solarium terrace above the Atlantic.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Situated almost slap bang between the airport and the capital, Hotel Las Olas ensures you cut down on your travel while on holiday. A shuttle bus service runs between Santa Cruz de La Palma and the hotel and the nearest beach is the C-shaped black-sand Playa de Los Cancajos, a brisk ten-minute walk away. Octopus and assorted fruits of the sea have been served at the chiringuito, Bar Restaurante El Pulpo, for over 50 years.

By plane: flights from London take around 9 hours with a stop in Barcelona; flights from Birmingham take around 11 hours with a stop in Tenerife. The hotel is a 2-minute drive from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to La Palma.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Somebody opened a box of coloured chalk in a board meeting prior to the construction of this aparthotel, which would explain the pastel pink of the reception and the varying shades of the apartment blocks. A jaunty maritime logo reminds visitors in any doubt of the hotel's Canary Islands location.

THE FACILITIES

Staff move quicker than guests, and the result is an eternally spotless complex and a can-do approach, utilized when dealing with holidaymakers' enquiries. There are two interconnecting main pools, one of which is heated. You will find pool, table football, and table tennis tables poolside. There's also a gym.

Apartment

BED AND BATH

The apartments can fit four guests which makes the hotel popular with families, as there is a double bedroom and living room with a sofa bed. The kitchen has a fridge, hob, and microwave, encouraging you to book the self-catering option. Apartment interiors have a similar colour scheme to the exteriors.

Room types: Apartment, Mountain View Apartment

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, balcony, kitchenette, TV, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

The view is better than the breakfasts and dinner at a same-y buffet. It's not all self-serve in the morning with eggs cooked to order. At night, there is more of a gateway to traditional Canarian cuisine. The pool bar serves the usual snacks and an á-la-carte restaurant, Thai cuisine.

Buffet restaurant: Canarian specialities and international cuisine.

Restaurante Thai La Ola: traditional Thai cuisine.

Pool bar: drinks and snacks.
