We stayed here in February and unfortunately it was cold and wet even the locals were complaining! The rooms were large with ensuite bathrooms great water pressure from the shower, Jaun was a good host and the guy who ran the bar was brilliant at feeding us in the evenings even with our poor Spanish and his 1/2 dozen words...

I traveled from Toronto via Frankfurt, Madrid, Tenerife to Betancuria taking over 27 hours! I landed in Betancuria exhausted yet thrilled when my cousin Diane met me at the airport. She and her daughter, Arminda (of Princess Arminda) were facilitating a Women's Only BALANCE Retreat at the oldest building on the islands. A 600year old villa that has been restored... More

This place is definitely different from anywhere to stay in Fuerteventura, and in a good way. It is situated in a renovated traditional Canary house in the middle of the gorgeous tiny town of Betancuria, the island's former capital. Juan, who runs the place, is most helpful and speaks very good English. He had sort of a hard time when... More

Went here today for tapas and a cold beer. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the beautiful, rustic decor. We didn't expect it to be so nice. We were also welcomed by the man working in the Bar and taking orders for food and drinks. He was very polite and welcomed us with a kind smile. We had goats... More

in the middle of a small village, not easy to find but worth to search for. the owner himself cares for you. fresh drinks, food if you like his daily special. rooms very special. breakfast a little poor if you want to find some negative. very central for trips around the island. rentcar neccesary.

Our favourite accommodation on FTV. The addition of the new bar and food options has added a new dimension to what was already a charming rustic B&B. Hope to return next year and stay a little longer.

We stayed for three nights. It's a lovely place to stay providing you don't expect luxury. The rooms are on the dark side but are full of character and comfortable. Very good value. Lovely scenery and close to the wonderful small beach of Los Molinas. Recommended if you want some peace and quiet and fresh air at a small price.

Interesting old courtyard house with 4 very basic rooms. Ours (No 3) had a creaky old iron bed, being over 6ft I had to sleep at an angle otherwise your foot will hit the sharp iron bed-end. Bath mat was either very dirty or very old as were the rough old red towels (colour didn't match anything else). The nearby... More

It’s interesting that the previous reviews divide into either Good or Poor, with little in the middle. That’s understandable – you have to visit the place to see why, as it does depend on what you expect from a B&B. I have opted for a good review as have the majority, but I can see why some people would not... More

We booked into the Princess Arminda for a week and left after just two days. We went expecting rustic, and we were expecting to rough it a little, but for a variety of reasons we moved on. We booked into room 4. Whilst the bathroom was modern, the smell coming from the shower was horrendous and this room obviously has... More
