My partner and I booked to stay at the Sombrero for 10 days in August. A few weeks before we were arriving I emailed El Sombrero to ask for a few requests. My requests were to have a room allocated to us which was away from the pool and the main road. I also asked if at all possible could... More

We booked this hotel with the recommendation from the travel agent who had also been here. We requested a hotel away from the main strip and this is exactly what we got. The staff here are very accommodating and friendly despite the night porter not speaking any English. There is a daily maid service who go above and beyond what... More

We have stayed at these apartments a few times now. Yes, the accommodation is a little dated but we have always found it to be very clean with generous sized apartments and in a good location in the heart of Los Gigantes. The area is quite hilly but there are pleasant walks over the cliffs to Puerto Santiago and beyond.... More

Arrived for an 11 day break and when we got to our room( No 32) we were a bit disappointed with the quality of it. A lot of modernisation is needed( electric wall sockets especially), and the furniture is pretty old. HOWEVER, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the room was spacious and immaculately clean. It was cleaned regularly by the... More

My wife and I have just returned from a weeks stay at El Sombrero. We were accompanied by our 10 year old grandaughter. We found the accomodation of a very good size, spotlessly clean ,and with an excellent daily cleaning service. The reception staff (particularly Juan ) could not have been more helpful, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.... More

We stayed here Christmas 2010. Los Gigantes is a nice tranquile village. Totally different than Playa las Americas. We were lucky with our room. We had a view of the cliffs from the balcony. All in all recommended. Great value for the price you pay.
