“Pure gem in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We spent about a week in this hotel and we're so glad we chose this amazing little gem away from the ugly touristic areas. We upgraded one room to a suite with a little terrace, and this was pure luxury. The restaurant has a short simple menu, but everything is fresh and cooked to perfection. Nicely presented too. It ended up being one of the best place to eat as well. The only flaw is the pool, a bit cold and noisy.

We stayed in one of he excellent villas rather than the main hotel. I can highly recommend it - electric gates, integrated garage, your own heated swimming pool, fully furnished sun terrace and fully fitted kitchen. Beautiful bathrooms - the master bedroom not only had it's own bathroom, but also had a dressing room, it's own sun terrace and even it's own huge TV!

Yaiza is well positioned between the airport, Playa Blanca and the Timanfaya National Park but off the beaten track. A beautiful, peaceful village with a couple of restaurants and a useful little supermarket.

The weather was good too - a bit of cloud which blows through quickly, warm and sunny with a constant breeze (wind!), which keeps things cool.

I would recommend Lanzarote in general (the lava fields have to be seen to be believed) and definitely these villas - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had villa 3 which is on the roadside. Although it's raised above the road level and has a wal...

From reviews we expected the Casona to be very nice and so it was: lovely large room, well appointed; good facilities including the pool; great staff. However, we did not expect to find the best restaurant in Lanzarote onsite; far better than L'Era which is mentioned in all the books. Food was varied, always excellent and plentiful - the rabbit was particularly wonderful.
Nowhere is far and it should be the the purpose of each visitor to seek out all the Cesar Manrigue buildings/artifacts/facilities/art; the best Lanzarote has to offer - awe-inspiring, brilliant, unique and so utterly wonderful.

Stayed for three days in august. The building itself is gorgeous, rooms are beatiful, super clean and luxury decorated as an old palace. HD TV and super kind treatment from the staff. Restaurant is great.

We were booked to stay at La Casona de Yaiza for one week. The Owner, Jose, was there to meet us on arrival. He showed us around the hotel and explained that we were the only people booked to stay there that week and they were planning some maintenance work so it would be good for us to move to his other hotel in Yaiza - Casa de Hilario - as there would be other guests there. We decided to stay for 1 night at La Casona de Yaiza and then transfer to Casa de Hilario the next day. Jose picked us up the next morning and drove us to Casa de Hilario, which was only 2 minutes away in the car.
Jose showed us a slection of rooms to stay in at Casona de Yaiza and we chose a double room on the upper level overlooking the pool with a great view across the hills of the Timanfaya National Park. The bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean and tidy. There was a small television, complimentary water and cosy bathrobes. We spent the afternoon by the pool which was very quiet and peaceful, although not heated so pretty cold!
Yaiza is a sleepy village/town with few bars and restaurants. We managed to find a couple of nice restaurants and a cafe/bar (next to the supermarket) which were open in the evening, all of which were nice. We ate in the restaurant at La Casona de Yaiza one evening which turned out to be the best meal we had on the island, and we found some very good restuarants during our stay.
The appeal of La Casona de Yaiza is the fact that you are staying away from the main resorts in the peace and quiet of the countryside. It is recommended that you hire a car to travel around the island and to have more choice in the evenings when it comes to meals. The Hotel itself has it's own unique style and Jose was a very welcoming host. Staying at La Casona de Yaiza almost felt like you were a guest at a friend's home, and although Jose or staff members are not always on-site Jose is only a phone call away if you have any issues.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to explore a different side to Lanzarote - it's a beautiful place to relax.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2011

Stayed here for a week in January to catch some sun. The hotel is in a quiet part of Lanzarote, Yaiza, well away from noisy resorts and bars. Booked online at 588 euros for 7 nights b&b. Stayed in room 5 which apparently is one of their cheapest rooms. The room is really lovely, spacious, high ceilings, mural in the bedroom area with a very large shower bathroom. They have a pool at the back and a sun deck at the front looking over the hills. Great views. So overall I think this is good value for money.

Yaiza is a very small village inland, and if you want to see any of the island you will need a hire car. The hotel can arrange a car for you half the cost I could hire online. Within walking distance from the hotel there is a supermarket, gift shop and that's about it. There is a restaurant in the village which shut at 4pm each day, and another a little further out ( 15 mins walk max).

The hotel has a restaurant attached. Its closed on Thursdays. We had a meal here each night and thought the quality was really excellent.

The hotel operates with very few staff. The owner operates between this and another hotel, so reception is not always open. Restaurant manager is there from 2pm each day, and there is one person who deals with breakfast. It's relaxed and informal.

The hotel information shows it to be 4 star. I would rate it a good 3 but not 4.

My only criticism is that it is noisy due to the very old wooden floors. They look fantastic but have no sound proofing properties so you will hear others talking, walking, snoring below or above your room.

For a peaceful stay, away from the massive resorts and busy nightlife, this was perfect.

Every room is unique and very spacious, clean and doesn't give a typical hotel-room feeling, only one negative comment is that the walls were very thin.
