Just spent 2 weeks on La Gomera at the Jardin Tecina complex. Loved the island, loved the weather, loved the people, but pretty disappointed with the hotel - which we found through the Sovereign "luxury collection" though it was far from a "luxury Hotel"; in reality its an average 3 star hotel with (admittedly) a spectacular view.
The rooms were average,the food was average (monotonous), the service was patchy (some really nice & helpful and some couldn't be bothered).
The main pool area is pretty scruffy and not well maintained; although the salt water pool area at the base of the cliff was a little better.
The maid service was random, on at least three occasions I had to "pinch" shower gel and shampoo from the maid carts becasue we weren't being replenished.
All small things perhaps but taken together puts this place in the 3 Start category.
I would say if you're looking for a family holiday based around a model of communal pool / routine buffet / nightly cheesy entertainment then this is for you.
But if you do, make sure you rent a car because the island and it's people are great and you'll only do the place justice if you get out and about.
We have stayed at the other 4 Start rated hotel in the Sovereign "Luxury" collectin - The Es Moli on Mallorca and it's miles ahead on every count, either the Es Moli is under-rated or the Jardin Tecina over-rated.
