El Molino de Agua, in Fataga (Gran Canaria)
El Molino de Agua used to be a rural hotel in the beautiful town of Fataga (Gran Canaria). A fire hit our property and part of the palm grove, destroying a part of our rural accommodation. Local aid, insurance… everything takes time to happen, so we have decided to reopen by offering some charming rooms and an RV Park or Caravan Park.
Thus, El Molino de Agua is currently an accommodation that offers 14 spacious and comfortable rooms, all on the ground floor. Its design evokes a warm, country-style atmosphere that will make you feel at home.

El Molino de Agua Hotel: how it used to be before the fire
El Molino de Agua used to be a rural hotel in the beautiful town of Fataga (Gran Canaria). A fire hit our property and part of the palm grove, destroying a part of our accommodation.
The fire of the palm grove of Fataga
The fire occurred in 2019 in Fataga, near El Molino de Agua hotel, and hit our rural hotel and our beautiful natural surroundings, affecting 35 hectares.
Luckily, El Molino de Agua hotel was evicted on time and none of our guests were affected.
Over the months, we have considered how to continue offering rural accommodation in Fataga, in this quiet area of Gran Canaria, and we have reopened with a new accommodation concept: charming rooms and an RV Park or Caravan Park.
Rebuilding and reopening of El Molino de Agua
After the rebuilding of El Molino de Agua rural accommodation facilities, now it has accommodation in 14 rooms, including double, triple rooms and spacious suites with a dining room. All of them have the charm of the buildings of Gran Canaria and all the comforts.
Also, without a doubt, the great novelty is the opening of an RV Park or Caravan Park, where you can not only park and rest in Fataga, but also enjoy El Molino de Agua facilities, such as the pool and the barbecue.
