This is a lovely hotel and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We had two rooms on the front overlooking the small and pretty town. The town is lovely from the picnic spot on the other side of the valley. The town is a banana growing town and the plantations are very pretty. A car is needed to... More

A very attractive rural hotel in a quiet location. A bit of a walk into 'town' and not a great deal there, but that's part of the joy. A great base for a few days walking from here. The owners were most helpful. I would recommend this hotel for walkers.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on a walking trip. Alex, not only speaks excellent English, but seems to have a telepathic knowledge of where his guests are and what they need, but materialises with offers of help as if my magic! The hotel was clean and the staff very welcoming. The breakfast array was replenished and refreshed constantly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while on a walking holiday. We were given a very warm welcome by Alex who spoke excellent English. We stayed in a standard room which was perfectly adequate for our needs and had a beautiful view across the valley to the hills. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with a good...

Although on a walking holiday, I arrived here by taxi without my husband who was walking! I was immediately offered coffee and I thought I would sit in the lounge as I was rather early for checking-in. As luck would have it, our suite at the top of the garden was ready so two lovely ladies took our cases and... More

Stayed in May, hotel is very clean with pleasant rooms, breakfast simple but won't leave you wanting. Our host Alex, was very friendly & extremely helpful, with tips on where & where not to go. When we visited not all restaurants in the village were open, so a bit of a walk to dine in the evening if not using... More

This family run boutique hotel is a delightful place to stay. Alex and his mother make a great team. He is fluent in several languages and knowledgeable about to area, local restaurants and walks. She invests her artistic flair and love in the internal decor and the well maintained garden. The breakfasts reflect local specialities and are varied and healthy.... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a walking tour of La Gomera and were very impressed. Alex was very helpful and friendly. The hotel is beautiful with lots of polished wood and homely touches. Breakfasts were delicious. All the rooms have names - we stayed in "vinatico" which was a lovely suite with a shower over a (quite short)... More
