We stayed here on our walking holiday in La Gomera.The hotel was clean and comfortable, the room was small but had a balcony and the building was delightful. There was a small lounge and comfortable seating in the dining room. Good breakfasts and lovely staff. The location was up a steep hill ( excellent views) which more of a problem... More

We stayed here for three nights on a walking holiday and travelled independently. Our room was a bit on the small side and had no TV. More lighting would have been nice so that we could read in the evenings, but there was a sort of lounge near reception with sofas and bright lights. Breakfast was excellent, wifi limited to...

Situated in a quiet elevated position looking down on the town, there are a good choice of restaurants nearby, but you will need a taxi to get to most. Rooms are comfortable, clean and simply furnished with firm beds. Breakfasts are very good continental with boiled eggs. For dinner you will need to go into town. The nearest restaurant is... More

The location of the hotel was just perfect fabulous views along the valley with the sea in the distance. Most peaceful nights sleep we have had in ages, and breakfast was varied with excellent quality fresh food. Well worth the 30mins drive from San Sebastián-we will be back!

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff are warm and welcoming (which is probably necessary, given the mist and wind we experienced there!) and there is an old-world charm about the place, because of the stone walls and wooden shutters, etc. The situation is fantastic - with views up and down the valley to the sea. The... More

This is a perfect place to get away from it all! A really well run hotel which was beautifully maintained and immaculate. It is a quiet location which is a great base for walking on la gomera. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and there were baskets of local oranges and bananas to enjoy in the lounge. The staff were really... More

A little slice of heaven. As if just being on La Gomera, paradise island, wasn't enough, you now have the Hotel Rural Ibo Alfaro. A calm, haven of serenity, situated in a lush, green, valley, in the less 'touristic' North of the island. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the tiled roof (still fabulous), but there are a...

We really loved this hotel. Staff reallly went out of their way to look after us. Excellent breakfast buffet. Wonderful views from our room and the terrace. We wished we could have stayed longer and used this as a base to explore the island.

Went to Hermigua on a round trip on La Gomera. Can really recommend the roundtrip model, this hotel, and this place a base for tours around this part of the island. Be aware that the north part of the island has less sun, but for walking in the mountains this is probably fine.
