La Isla Y El Mar

With designer interiors, a chill-out terrace and swish pools, La Isla Y El Mar feels like it has been lifted straight from a design magazine.

The property is set on a hill that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Although you’ll have a secluded and private feel, it’s only a 10-minute walk to the wide sandy beach. And the seafront promenade doubles as Puerto del Carmen’s main strip, so you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants.

At the hotel, there are two pools framed by loungers and parasols. There’s also a bar for snacks and drinks, as well as a chill-out zone where you can get your head into a good book.
