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. The restaurant offers very nice food from a cold buffet and in the evening we had a lovely lady chef who made hot food in front of the customers, she... More

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

This was our third visit, and it has all the ingredients for a relaxing holiday by the sea. The beach is a short walk from the hotel, although it could be tricky for anyone with mobility problems. If you don't want to go down to the beach, there is a lovely terrace with a swimming pool overlooking the sea. Some... More

This hotel is perfectly located, small enough to feel cozy but still large enough that the buffet serves enough different dishes. The quality for breakfast and dinner was always very good, even for a vegetarian. The rooms have all a stunning view on the coast.

We stayed here for 3 nights half-board after spending a week in Corralejo. First impressions of the hotel were good with a brisk check-in and a room looking out over the pool to the beach and sea below. The hotel is well situated to explore the small old town or walk along the promenade or visit the beach. The food... More

I could wax lyrical for pages about this place but I won't as it's all been said before- so basically I will some up the hotel, the facilities, the staff, the rooms, the nearness to the beach, nearness to lovely friendly restuarants, the climate, the quietness, the opportunities for quiet and rest in one word AWESOME!

What a great hotel. Love the location, all rooms overlook the sea. Air con rooms are a tad dated, but spotless with everything you could want. The location is perfect with great nearby fish based bars and restaurants. It's quiet with few children. The pool is so relaxing,yes there are a few early towelers, but it's so laid back it's...

We arrived here full of high hopes as the reviews we read were good. Our room overlooked the tops of battered on the ground floor. I asked to change and was given the same one but on floor above.

We stayed here for 6 nights in mid June and chose the hotel because of its relatively small size, seafront location and Tripadvisor reviews. We were very happy with our choice, especially as we received a free upgrade to one of only 3 suites. Ours was room 55, situated on the lowest level of the hotel along from the pool,... More
