“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

I stayed in Valle Gran Rey for 2 nights at the Jardin del Conde. The apartments are very large and clean but very basic. Also the website said it has a bar and when we asked we was told they have never heard about that.
The staff were very friendly and its roughly just under a mile to the centre.
All in all it wasnt the greatest place but it is what youd expect for the money.
If i stayed in Valle Gran Rey i would probably stay somewhere else next time, but if stuck then i would go back there as its not that bad.
We stayed on the ground floor and didnt have any view.

Room Tip: Would recomend getting the second floor.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Jardin del Conde was a good choice in Valle Gran Rey - well maintained and well positioned opposite the prettiest of the beaches, with a nice clean pool, a leafy garden and within walking distance of the restaurants and shops at either end of the resort. The allocated upper floor apartment was north facing - not ideal for sun-starved Britons although in Spanish culture the shaded locations are often considered the most desirable - but the helpful receptionist swapped us to one with a sunny balcony on request. The apartment was spacious for two, quiet and well laid out. It was cleaned and the beds made on alternate days. Maybe the kitchen equipment levels were barely enough for someone wanting to self-cater and it was unusual not to have wine glasses provided (just tumblers and long glasses), but apart from breakfast we always intended to eat out. There is plenty of choice and restaurant prices were reasonable. The resort itself is very laid-back and, surprisingly, slightly reminiscent of Goa. Lots of live music, including a superb band of locals playing local music (similar to Cuban) several nights a week outside Casa Maria, reggae at the hippie venue and intensely serious Indian classical music played by a German maestro at the Piano Bar. In late December 2012 we had blue skies and few clouds all week, with temperatures peaking in the mid 20s every day and a sea still warm enough for comfortable swimming. It was a good place for a winter sunshine break for anyone happy with black sand / pebble beaches. Good walking opportunities too.

We had been concerned about the effects of the severe fires on the island this summer. However although the damage on the island was extensive there has been rain since and the valley is green again. In Valle Gran Rey itself the fire damage to the vegetation can still be seen in the lower valley bottom away from the beaches, but it is not immediately obvious and the ground vegetation is already recovering. It's probably too soon to tell but, with luck, some of the damage to the palms in the lower valley may prove to be superficial. The effect of the fires won't have an impact on anyone visiting for a beach holiday. Further up the valley and into the National Park there are areas where the damage was more severe although there are still vast areas untouched by the fires and the local guided walking companies seemed to be operating as usual.

Tip: we combined our week in Jardin del Conde with nights before and after at the San Sebastian Parador - highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sunny balcony if that's important to you.

Very nice set of apartments, well within walking distance of everything in the Valle Gran Re. Clean, spacious, nice pool and well organised. Just a word of warning, we had a first floor flat with a sunny balcony and a nice view of the hills of Gran Re - the ground floor apparts seemed to be in perpetual gloom and not very private and open to the curious gaze of passers-by on their way to the pool or wherever. Convenient car hire company in the adjacent street but watch out for the 'dynamc conversion' syndrome if you pay by card.

The garden with pool is beautifull, the location (at the beach, in the center) is excellent and the rooms are comfortable and clean. We are really happy with this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
Also plenty of good and cheap restaurants in the neighbourhood.

In March 2010 we stayed a week at Jardin del Conde at La Gomera. Only one conclusion possible: Great apartment!! We were lucky we had a apartment with a nice balcony with seaview. The garden/swimmingpool are nice. It is big enough to fit all the guests. The employees at the recption are a little stiff but since we didn't need them it didn't bother us. I can really recommend the apartment!
