The owners of Gara hotel Sonia and Miguel are just lovely! They extend a very warm welcome to all of their guests and we really felt very welcome. This is a lovely small hotel/hotel rural which offers a very comfortable place to stay in the lovely Garachico. With only 16 (?) rooms, it's quite a small place but is extremely... More

The best thing about this hotel is the owners, Sonia and MIguel who are amazingly friendly and helpful. There's plenty more that's good too, especially the terrace overlooking the ocean, and the breakfasts which are excellent. There's usually a good vibe here, with friendly people on the terrace (mostly Germans as Sonia is half-German and has attracted a good following!)... More

We spent five very pleasant nights in October at this peaceful 'hotel rural' in the lovely little town of Garachico. The hotel, which has sixteen rooms, is classed as a 'hotel rural' so whilst the bedrooms are fairly basic, if adequate, it was quite a surprise to see the range of facilities and services offered in this small, family-run establishment,...

The Gara Hotel was our favorite during our recent European vacation. We easily called this "home base" on our trip. Street parking was easy. The owners were very personable offering recommendations for daily excursions and dinner suggestions (in line with our preferences). Each one of which was great! And we could practice our Spanish, so we enjoyed this since we... More

I cannot recommend this place enough. My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of our "babymoon" to Spain, and this hotel was EXACTLY what we had in mind: off the beaten path, but surrounded by interesting things to do and places to eat; easy access to public transportation; beautiful views of the ocean; in the heart...

Lovely B&B in one of the quaintest towns on the island. Ideal place to chill out and soak up the winter sun. Hope to go back again.

A beautiful little place run by a very friendly couple, Miguel and Sonja. The other staff (Christina? and one other lady) were also lovely and kept our room beautifully clean during our week's stay. My only gripes are that the wi-fi stopped working for a while, but I have to say that once it was reported there was a technician... More

We spent there one week in April this year. The hotel is located right on the stony beach of Garachico with its famous tide pools. From the open roof terrace you can enjoy a great view over the beach. Sonja and Miguel run their small hotel with a very personal touch. Nothing is too much trouble. From booking tickets to... More

We planned a chill-out week in a small hotel before the winter sets in but we certainly didn't expect to find ourselves in one of the nicest places on earth, owned and run by absolutely charming and helpful people. We had a fantastic stay: our room was spotless, comfortable and spacious, with a large shower room equipped with a wonderful... More

We stayed at the Gara Hotel for four nights and couldn't fault the friendliness of the owners and staff. They rushed out to offer us an umbrella when we were going out for a walk on an evening that threatened to rain. They gave us recommendations for places to eat and were generally incredibly friendly and welcoming. So we were... More
