Apartments El Cerrito

The Canary IslandsLa Palma › Playa de los Cancajos

A small complex of exceptionally spacious apartments, within walking distance of the beach and local facilities and a short bus ride from Santa Cruz

Standing in a slightly elevated position towards the back of the small resort of Playa de los Cancajos, El Cerrito is a very well looked-after complex of just 37 apartments, divided between two attractively designed buildings set either side of the central swimming pool. The seafront path is approximately 250 metres away, partially down some steps, whilst Los Cancajos's black volcanic beach is around 800 metres away and can thus be reached on foot in under 15 minutes. The resort of Los Cancajos boasts a reasonable range of restaurants and shops for your day-to-day needs, and the island capital Santa Cruz is just 5 km away; the bus stop and taxi stand are both within easy walking distance from the apartments.

With a total floor area of nearly 70 square metres, not including the large terraces, El Cerrito are some of the most spacious apartments we have come across anywhere in the Canaries, made all the more appealing by their colourful, contemporary decor. The majority of the space is taken up by the open-plan living-dining room and kitchen. Each apartment also has a separate bedroom (with either a double bed or twin beds and plenty of fitted wardrobe space) and a modern bathroom with a hairdryer. In the lounge, the two large sofas can be made up as additional beds (maximum occupancy is either three adults or two adults and two children, plus an infant in a cot). The fitted kitchen area is equipped with a ceramic hob, microwave, large fridge-freezer, toaster and coffeemaker, and there is satellite TV (limited English-language channels) in the sitting area. A rare bonus in Canarian self-catering accommodation is the provision of air-conditioning; a local charge of 6 euros per day applies should you wish to use this. The terraces are provided with patio furniture, and apartments with a sea view from the terrace can be requested for a small supplement.

El Cerrito's pool is equally attractively designed, with water cascading down a lava stone wall at the far end, and there is also a shallow paddling pool for children. Other communal areas include the reception, the charming breakfast room where an optional continental buffet is served in the morning, and a games area with table tennis.

For couples and small families who do not wish to have to rely on a hire car, El Cerrito offers some of the most comfortable and spacious self-catering accommodation on La Palma.
