We wanted a relaxing and luxurious spa break in the mountains. We spent four nights away from it all, and had a most enjoyable time. It was our third Parador stay, and like the two before, we felt we were being treated as royalty. We spent one of our days in the spa, sampling the Turkish baths and sauna. The heated swimming pool is half inside, half outside - a great experience. We each booked a hot stone massage treatment, which was fantastically relaxing. There is also a small gym to get the circulation going. The restaurant has lovely local food - it's well worth dining there every night given the variety of dishes on offer. Our room overlooked the amazing Caldera de Tejeda. The parador staff were at all times most helpful.
There are some great hikes around the Parador, though we were a little unlucky with the November weather - clouds and mist much of the time. The hamlet of Tejeda is worth a visit, and further afield we recommend the botanical garden, the basilica at Teror and the charming seaside town of Puerto de las Nieves.More
