This was our 3rd visit to the charming Hacienda San Jorge. I see the hotel as a bit like Helen Mirren- she isn't in the first flush of youth, but she remains captivating and beautiful. The hotel is maintained to an excellent standard, and seems to be well loved by her staff. There is an area devoted to the propogation of orchids. There is a duck pond, a much loved scarlet macaw, a terrapin pool, and some friendly house cats. The hotel is relaxed and informal, and the environment is just so tranquil.
The pool area is divine, and the staff are lovely. We had incomparable views from our room. I was delighted that we were allowed a late check out on our last day. The pick up for an 20:30 flight was about 18:30, and we were allowed to use our room all day- FANTASTIC. I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and its staff, and we would be absolutely distraught were Thomson to stop going to La Palma, and to the Hacienda in particular.
Our self catering room was well equipped, with some tasteful etchings on the wall. In all honesty, this is our favourite hotel anywhere. The situation is incomparable. La Palma is just gorgeous. The food, the people and its climate are beyond compare. Even the little shop in the Hacienda San Jorge hotel is reasonably priced. It is unfortunately the case that it tends to get a bit cloudy in Los Cancajos by early afternoon. However, if you are of an inquisitive disposition, you really must not consider staying anywhere else. You must hire a car, and do some walking, guided by Charles Davis, in his book "Walk! La Palma". Honestly, the place is wonderful, unless you are put off by what other reviewers have written- if you are immobile and just want sun, then don't bother, otherwise, visit while you can.
Los Cancajos is a VERY quiet resort, but the beach is as good as any on the island and you are handy for Santa Cruz De La Palma, the nicest capital on the archipelago. There is an excellent restaurant, El Lagar, and Casa Goyo, amazing for local fish, is a short taxi ride away.
