The hotel boasts an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean. The room was very clean and was within walking distance of restaurants and shops on the beach. The bathroom was really nice. The wifi is just okay -- depends on where you are in your room. Most of the staff is reasonably friendly.

This is a fabulous hotel for those looking for peace and quiet. A definite stress free location.

Not the easiet hotel to find as we drove ourselves from the airport - We were a little concerned when we got to Morro Jable as it seemed like 'The Golden Mile' in Blackpool - not what we wanted for a relaxing Christmas break. We eventually found the hotel tucked away down a side street and was greeted by the... More

Without doubt this was one of the most enjoyable holidays that my wife and I have had in years. Esssentially it was made such a wonderful experience by the hotel - its superb location above the beach and the excellent staff. As stated above it is a fantastic hotel. The size of the hotel, having just 54 rooms, means that... More

After a walking holiday on the island this was a wonderful place to end the hotel. Great location overlooking the beach and nice big rooms with your own balcony. There is a terrace with sun beds, parasols and a pool and at the end of the terrace a gate that leads down to the beach. The breakfast and evening buffet... More

I stayed last year in this beautiful hotel by the seafront. The hotel itself is small but really nice and cosy and just at a short walk from the beach.

I had high expectations after reading recent reviews, and I wasn't disappointed. Food, service, rooms, location all excellent. A great place for relaxing, and miles of golden sandy beach. The only element that wasn't 5 star when I visited in November was the weather, as storms hit the Canaries. So the sea was too rough for swimming, but the views... More
