“A most relaxing stay in elegant surroundings”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We had two nights here at the end of a week's walking holiday and this was our favourite hotel of the four stayed in. The building is elegant and furnished with antiques, old photographs and many fine pieces. The gardens are extensive with a good sized pool and all this combined gives this place a very relaxed and exclusive feel. Our bedroom did not disappoint. It was roomy and quiet with comfortable beds, a sofa and an en suite. Dinner was a bit different from usual, taken communally with other guests at a round table in an elegant dining room. A good opportunity to meet other walkers and share stories. Food was fine but unremarkable and service variable - good first evening then poor the next under different staff. Comfortable lounges to relax in with a book. There was free broadband access in the public areas but not bedrooms. Breakfast al fresco was ok but the quality of the coffee could be improved. We left wishing we had booked an extra night or two as this is a very relaxing place to stay.

A stunning hotel, a mixture of a stately home, combined with a hotel conversion. We simply loved this place, spotlessly clean, rooms furnished with antiques, yet sympathetically converted into stylish hotel accommodation. Evening meals adequate but not fantastic, three fairly simple courses, but srevice very attentive. Breakfasts taken outside and adequate for everyone, additional course ( i.e. fried eggs available on request )
One to try!

Spectacular 19th century country house hotel - isolated. Very impressive building in extensive grounds with interesting period artefacts. Whilst staff appreciate any attempts to speak Spanish, this is coupled with a complete unwillingness of serving staff to try to speak guests’ language. Dining around two large tables (so forcing interaction with other guests) – food hearty but uninspired. Breakfast (good) is taken outside in the snack bar area – bizarre for a February breakfast in very cool temperatures.

Room Tip: First floor.

Las Longueras is a wonderful 19th century red/white house with elegant corridors and spacious rooms. It's full of fascinating objects and has an atmosphere all its own. We stayed here two nights and had dinner on both nights. There are two large tables in the dining room so it makes for an interesting evening, working out which language to speak to the other diners! The staff really only speak Spanish (apart from the manager) so some basic language skills are necessary here. The food wasn't exceptional but the atmosphere was. Breakfast was al fresco but you could have taken it into the dining room I believe. The fresh orange juice was from their own orange groves and you could have eggs cooked specially for you. The room was very spacious and elegant with a view of the Centennial Palms and bougainvillea just outside the window. The bathroom was small but adequate.

The gardens were fantastic: massive palms, succulents and a special Cactus Garden. All in all a very special place to stay.

Las Longueras is a beautiful, one-of-a-kind countryside hotel perfect for you, if you like peace and quiet and want to see another side of Gran Canaria than the artificial beach resorts of the South, e.g. the abhorrent Puerto Rico. A family with two kids, we stayed for over a week in the hotel's casa rural, which is a rather spacious separate cottage some 300 metres from the main building and fully enjoyed our own space and peace — and the ability to cook for ourself every now and then.

Breakfast is served at the hotel outdoor patio and provides a good start for the day, with fresh orange juice and egg of choice. You can have dinner at the hotel too, cooked by the adorable hotel cook Elsa. Having explored the rather limited restaurant options of the nearest villages of Agaete and Puerto de las Nieves, you may consider the 18€ price of the one-choice menu reasonable and of good quality.

The hotel pool is big and the mountainous view spectacular. Subsequently, instead of swimming and sunbathing, the main attraction of Las Longueras is trekking. Unfortunately some of the footpaths are not in good shape and lack good signs — local tourist authorities, wake up! In addition to robust shoes, bring also torches with you, as the gravel road leading to the hotel and to the cottage are unlit after sunset.

The personnel is very helpful and friendly, but do not expect them to remember to get back to you after having promised to check something for you. We were especially thankful to Lourdes for arranging us a visit to the neighbouring finca, with horses, goats, turtles, etc.

The cottage probably dates back to the same century as the hotel, but lacks its patrician manor house atmosphere, with IKEA furniture blending into the more rustic elements. The beds and duvets are better (i.e. harder) than normally in hotels, but if allergic, you will react to the Spanish overdose of softener aromatics in the sheets. An electric radiator just manages to keep the cottage warm if it gets cold in the nighttime — which is very much possible in December on the Northern side of the island, with temperatures often about 5°C lower than in the South. An apparently rare shower of rain revealed a leak in the kitchen ceiling; the boiler does not provide enough hot water for a proper hot bath; and the private terrace faces north — all these things gave us the impression that maybe we would have enjoyed this charming, secluded cottage even better, had we come to Gran Canaria during warmer months.

Room Tip: The cottage is perfect for a couple or a family with smaller kids with the possibility of self-cater...

We specificly picked this part of the island for the fact that it is not so touristic and has great possibilities to hike. We stayed for a week at Las Longueras in one of the junior suites, which are somewhat behind the main house. Modern suite with big bathroom, shower and bubblebath with a great view on the mountains. Enough space to store your lugage and clothes and pretty good bed.
Each morning breakfast was between 8.30 and 10.30 and it is self service on the terrace. Freshly sqeezed orange juice and bread with the possibility to order eggs. Not very fancy but perfect for us.
The area is very peacefull and the only afternoon that we stayed at the pool we were alone.
There is wifi on the breakfast terrace not in the rooms. Also a very small gym with next to it a possibility to have a massage, which I had and it was excellent.
You can have dinner at the hotel itself but it is very early, untill 8 PM. We drove up every night to one of the villages. If you stay a few days in this place you need your own car to move around the island and to get your lunch/dinner. Challenge is to drive up in the dark towards the main road from the hotel. The road is horrible and dark with lots of holes and curves, so you need to use all of your driving skills. We made some great hikes on the island and had nice meals in Agaethe and the small village behind it, although I must admit Agaethe was pretty small too. For us a perfect place to stay for a week and everything we hoped for during this active holiday.
One suggestion: bring a torch, because sometimes the lights are out and the walk from the parking to the hotel is pretty dark.

Room Tip: Pay somewhat more for a junior suite, it is worth it

Situated in a beautiful part of the island. The Finca is a lovely old building with loads of character. The pool is big and in the sun the whole day with plenty of loungers for everyone, but we had the pool to ourselves most days even though the hotel was full. The bedrooms are large and have a ceiling fan which is needed when it is hot.
We were there at the end of April the weather was lovely 5 days out of 7. Like Spain the island is having a hard time economically and quite a lot of the restaurants were either closed or almost empty. If you are prepared to drive El Roque is a lovely place for lunch or dinner.
