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.

A really good rural hotel to explore the north of the island. Fantastic views. Really friendly management. Some good restaurants close by, though you need to drive say 3 km to get to them. A good coffee and cake shop in the town. Local bars are good to have a drink and watch the locals come and go.

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
