A refuge where the world stops

Welcome to Hotel Rural El Refugio

Located in the stunning Nublo Rural Park, the Hotel Rural El Refugio, a model of a typical 19th century Canarian manor house, offers a unique experience in Cruz de Tejeda, the heart of the island of Gran Canaria.

With a privileged location surrounded by nature and spectacular landscapes, El Refugio is the perfect destination for those looking to disconnect and enjoy the beauty of the Sacred Mountains of Gran Canaria, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
