Living on the South Coast of Tenerife, it's nice to get away once in a while and this little place was so relaxing and homely that I will try to return again very soon.
Print out a copy of the directions map directly from the hotel website before you drive, and you'll find the place with no trouble - even I managed it! Oh, and as you're almost there you'll drive through a banana plantation - without a doubt, don't turn round because you are on the right track.
Reception is in the main car park and you, complete with your luggage are driven down to the main building on a Golf buggy.
The Hotel has an oldie world charm about it with lots of antique type furnishings. Bedrooms are fairly small with a spacious bathroom (well, ours was) and very clean. There is Spanish TV, a minibar (which is very reasonably priced and well stocked with drinks/snacks) and there was lots of hot water - so no complaints there.
I had taken a bottle of my own wine to the hotel but couldn't find a corkscrew. The staff were very helpful and the receptionist went out of her way to get a corkscrew, then tracked me down to the pool to hand it over to me.
The restaurant food was deliciously different in the evening, although portion sizes were a little on the small side, and the buffet breakfast was well stocked with a mixture of hot and cold foods.
One particularly nice touch is that the hotel offers free tea and coffee throughout the day which you can help yourself to in the restaurant.
Take suitable shoes for walking and you can explore the coastline here, or take a good stock of reading material and lie back to relax by the poolside. There isn't much else to do, which is exactly what I wanted! Heaven.
