“A little bit of paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This was my third visit to this hotel. The accommodation, food and facilities are excellent. The service from the staff was friendly and efficient and helped make the stay enjoyable. The relaxing Laurel Club adjacent to the hotel is a perfect place to relax and unwind.
With views out to the Atlantic and Mount Tiede, on Tenerife, in the distance it really is worth a visit. We will be back.

Room Tip: A sea view is preferable, in my opinion, to a garden view.

It is the right place for you on La Gomera if you want a good infrastructure, if you feel at ease in a big resort hotel, if you like to stay close to the ocean, if you love flowers and plants.
If you are looking for intimacy and absolute peace, as well as a traditional hotel in Spanish style, then better opt for the Parador.

We enjoyed a two night stay in this beautiful hotel. When we arrived we were told we had been upgraded to a Superior room which overlooked the sea, which was a nice treat. Our luggage was taken by a motorised cart, we were guided to our room, which was a lovely little bungalow, by the man transporting our luggage. He was very helpful, advising us of an easier way to walk back to the main building for meals. Our room overlooked the sea, the view was wonderful, and our room was very clean and comfortable, we had a kettle complete with tea, coffee and milk - quite unusual for this to be provided in the Canary Islands. Also the wifi worked in the room, again this is unusual for the Canary Islands, so my husband was happy!

It was a long walk back to the restaurant, but the paths were easy, winding slowly around beautiful gardens - I have a mobility problem, but managed ok. The staff were all very helpful, all spoke English very well - we do speak some Spanish, but this makes things easier.

The main part of the hotel is decorated in a very tasteful Canarian style, very comfortable.

There were lots of families with children there when we stayed, but we never felt overcrowded, the Spanish children always seem so well behaved anyway, and we enjoyed chatting to a toddler at the next table, and her very friendly family.

We would definitely stay in the Hotel again, and would recommend it to all age groups.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the sea are well worth the extra money - we were upgraded (don't know why...

We have just returned from a fantastic week long stay at the Jardin Tecina.

We would echo many of the comments on the site. It is a really good hotel in a fantastic location perched high on the cliffs above Playa de Santiago.

We do not normally do the pool and hotel holiday thing but we were really glad we made an exception on this occasion.

We had rooms overlooking the sea and any extra you may pay for these is more than worth it. Listening to the Cory's Shearwaters at dusk is like listening to a kazoo band on the cliffs!

The hotel has all the facilities that you would expect and these are complemented by really helpful and friendly staff. Having a family member with coeliac disease can be a problem but was no trouble at all. All of the staff in the restaurant were exceptionally helpful and special mention goes to Pedro who ensured that she was properly looked after!

La Gomera is a quiet place and may not suit everybody but it was exactly what we were looking for. We hiked from the top of the Island to the coast, one day, which perhaps was not ideal in the August sun. We also took the island tour and a whale watching trip (probably alongside jennifer b) and would recommend both of these.

All in all a great hotel and a fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Pay for a room with a full sea view, you will not regret it.

my husband and I stayed at the hotel Jardin Tecina for 11 days. We arrived after a 40 minute coach trip from the ferry port. The staff were great, our bags were taken straight to our room, and from then on it was felt as if ALL the staff couldn't do enough for us.
Our room was fantastic with great views overlooking the sea. Very clean, and roomy.
The food at the hotel was delicious, and we spent half of our time eating at the hotel because the food was of such high quality and variety.
The pool areas were very clean, and not too busy. We spent most of our time at the bar pool, and we always had a selection of sunbeds to choose from.
We had two trips out - one on a whale watching boat trip, never saw a whale, but saw a pod of about 50 dolphins. That was a great trip, the food on board looked wonderful, and the swim in the sea was refreshing. We also went on a coach trip around the island and into the national park. It was a superb day out, with an authentic La Gomerian lunch to tempt us. The island is simply stunning with wonderful scenery and superb flowers and plants.
We hope to come back soon and visit this special place, and would stay at the Tecina again.

Room Tip: We had a second floor room, and the views were superb...

The staff was skilled and very professional, but had also space and time for a smile + an a talk - and there was always a little extra attention for our daughter, so it was a joy :-) Our impression is that the staff takes pride in their work. We thank them a lot for making our vacancy great. The hotel asks for peace and quiet both inside and out - it does not mean that children and adults can’t socialize and have fun, but it invites to consideration and respect for others - it was super! The surroundings are beautiful and charming, well maintained and includes interesting gardens, a great pool area, good food in charming restaurants, a fine bar. Good entertainment in the form of various evening events. Every evening lowered calm after dinner and before "guest entertainment" with beautiful tones from the piano with real-talented pianist Anne Tina. Anne Tina adds the hotel an extra seductive spice. After a long lazy day by the pool or an adventurous trekking in the National Park it was just beautiful to listen to her music with a little stardust under the beautiful Spanish moon :-)

Room Tip: Kids Club a little dull - but it does not matter if the kids - as our daughter - are water dogs, as...

We arrived late at this Hotel after getting lost on route due to setting off without a Map. The moment we did arrive we were made very comfortable. We were escorted into the restaurant which was about to close and helped ourselves to the Buffet.

After Dinner we set off to find our room and were very pleased to see that our luggage had been delivered correctly.

When we woke the following morning and opened the curtains we thought we had woke up in Heaven. The view was to die for ......... we were in a sea front room - bliss !

We stayed at the Hotel for a week which took us over New Years Eve 2012.

We loved every minute and really could not find fault with the hotel. The New Years Party was fantastic.

The staff were very friendly and provided excellent service.

I would love to return Very Soon.

The only down side to La Gomera was the driving - We hired a car in Teneriffe only to be told we could not take it to La Gomera - Fortunately we found company that allowed cars to be taken over. When we started to drive on the island we realised why they do not like cars to be taken over - Some pretty scary roads on the island !

Room Tip: Pay the Extra for a Sea View !
