I have visited Las Galeras several times over the last 10 years, staying at various accommodations. This is THE place to stay in Las Galeras. Dominique has created a warm, inviting home away from home. It is obvious he cares about his guests, the experience they have. I will always return to stay with Dominique and look forward to my...

Small geckos, great loft space, and the bedroom window opens onto a scenic expanse of palm trees and ocean. White gauzy netting canopies the spacious bed for dreamlike effect. The refrigerator worked sufficiently, and there was a full selection of pots, pans, dishes and flatware. Could've cooks all types of elaborate meals. The decorations were tasteful and interesting, with fun... More

The location is excellent!! From inside you can hear and see the sea. It's only 2' walking to the beach. Located in a very quiet little street, 2' away from the center with a few (good) bars and restaurants. The owner is always ready to help and give information. The lovely appartments are located in a beautiful garden. What you... More

We absolutely loved our end apartment and made it our home for just one week.... More

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay at La Isleta. The apartments are designed very thoughtfully, each with a view of the ocean from the bedroom and kitchen. The mosquito net over the bed made it so we could even sleep with the windows open. The kitchens are fully equipped and a joy to cook in. We... More
