A winding mountain road leads up to RK El Cabo Cottage, a homely family-run hotel set on the outskirts of quaint Santa Brigida, known for its 16th-century church, lively weekend market and panoramic valley views. The hotel occupies a terracotta-toned villa surrounded by citrus trees and colourful plants, which overlooks the surrounding countryside, and is located about a 15-minute drive from both the 10-acre Viera y Clavijo Botanical Garden and hiking trails to the unique Caldera de Bandama volcanic crater. Las Palmas city centre, packed with historic architecture, museums and nightlife options is 20 minutes’ drive from the hotel, whilst Playa de Las Canteras, the city’s main beach, takes around 25 minutes to reach by car.
RK El Cabo Cottage’s traditional interiors are characterised by antique-inspired furnishings, tapestries and gilt-framed paintings. Leisure facilities include an outdoor pool, table tennis, darts and an exercise bike.
The hotel’s suites and apartments are individually decorated in a rustic style with a mixture of modern and classic furnishings, along with distinct touches including richly patterned fabrics and local artefacts. All include include free Wi-Fi, TVs and sitting areas. Higher tariff quarters add separate living rooms, whilst apartments sleep up to six people and come with kitchens.
