Stayed in December 2012 for 4 days. The hotel is located about 35 minute drive from the airport right next to the ocean. I had a room overlooking the sea on the second floor, with a view towards La Palma (I think) which you could see in the morning. The rooms are exceptionally clean and comfortable with a fridge and coffee/tea making facilities.
The whole island of El Hierro is very peaceful and quiet and the hotel reflects this, in addition it is a health spa and a whole range of treatments can be booked at fairly reasonable rates.
I had half board at the hotel, breakfast was a cold buffet and catered more to German tastes, but there was plenty to choose from. Evening meal has a set menu with four or five choices for three courses which is served to you. The food was very good and served promptly. The restaurant staff don't speak English (or German) at all, but we all seemed to manage with the few words of Spanish that we knew. The receptionist does speak English so any problems and they just called her over. There is also free wi-fi in the reception area, but no computer so you need to bring your own phone/ipad/laptop to use it.
The island of El Hierro and this hotel are ideal for a tranquil break from city and work life and stresses and I would love to return.
