The distinctive pink hue of the former mansion of the Marquises of La Quinta Roja is a fine example of baroque architecture in the Canaries. What’s more, it gets even better once guests step inside, for the renovation is shown off to its fullest around the fantastic interior patio area. The original building is 16th century and was constructed following a royal donation from King Carlos and then further redeveloped in the next century. Although it somehow survived the volcanic eruption of 1706, it was badly damaged by a fire. Yet today the building stands renovated and refreshed, living out its former glory with a masterful design that is a true landmark of the area.

The original walls and beamed ceilings remain and house surprisingly spacious rooms for a little hotel like this (the double plus rooms and junior suites are the ones to go for to experience this at its best). All rooms and suites have modern amenities: music system, satellite TV, air-conditioning, a safe and free wi-fi internet access.

Although La Quinta Roja doesn’t have its own pool, this won’t be missed when guests can go to the nearby volcanic rock pool just down the road in which to swim. There is also a conventional swimming pool nearby. Meanwhile, to relax, there is a spa, sauna and solarium in which to rest those weary legs and recuperate (many guests like to trek or cycle in the surrounding area). Bicycles can be hired from the hotel. The Pigeon Loft lounge provides an attractive and more contemporary-looking space in which to look out over the historic town of Garachico and maybe read a book.

Garachico itself is a ‘casco histórico’, which means something akin to ‘historic town’. This means that the town around the hotel is almost exclusively made up of traditional buildings, appearing somewhat as though time has stood still, with old churches, restaurants and a tiny castle.

We Say

A beautifully restored hotel in a traditional Tenerife town. This hotel had been on our want-list for a long time.
