“Charming Old World Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Don't let my title confuse you. This is a modern hotel with beautiful views of the bay. Rooms with all mod cons, mini bar fridge and safe. 10 minute walk to the town, take a taxi back (uphill). Probably best suited for persons with a car. However we didn't have one but we managed fine. This is our first visit to a Parador and we will return.

We have visited the other 4 Paradores of the Canary Islands (Gran Canaria, El Hierro, La Palma and Tenerife). The one on La Gomera awoke the greatest emotions inside us.
The location of the hotel on top of a steep and rocky cliff (overlooking San Sebastian) is spectacular! From the moment you enter this 40 years old property you can feel that it is a very special place. The furniture is wonderful, architecture is wonderful, the gardens are wonderful!
Staff at reception is very efficient and friendly. Staff at the bar and in the restaurant as well.
It is such a nice experience to have a nice dinner in the patio - one can relax as much as hardly anywhere else on the archipelago. The gardens are huge, there are wonderful plants and flowers. There is a big pool with lovely views over the port. Deck chairs and umbrellas could be exchanged in the near future, they disappointed me a bit...
Our room had a magnificent sea view and we enjoyed 4 very quiet and relaxing days on this beautiful, rocky island. Furniture was old and traditional as one can expect it in a Parador. We loved it! The bathroom was ok but could be improved. Lack of kleenex, it is a detail but yes, I do expect it in a 4* hotel. Room service was efficient and very friendly, food is excellent and the way it is presented is 5 stars! We intended to stay here for 2 days. Then we extended to 3 and then to 4 - just because it is a lovely place to stay in harmony and peace! We would turn back at any time and it was one of our favourite hotels during our trip, visiting all the 7 Canary Islands and staying in 15 different hotels.

Room Tip: Upper floor with sea view

What an amazing hotel in a beautiful location overlooking the bay at San Sebastián. We stayed here for a week and couldn't find a fault with anything here. The swimming pool is great, rooms are spacious and food is excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay in Parador La Gomera during our honey moon in August. The swimming pool, with view to the ocean was great, the room was beautiful, relaxing and very big, with a balcony (only in the 2nd floor). The breakfast cost 17E per person, so we bought groceries at the minimarket just across the hotel (opens at about 07.30, close sunday). There is also a local small bar just outside, where you can buy coffee (opens at about 09.00, close Sunday). The "city" is 10min. walk - the way down is nice, the way up a little exhausting but worth it!

Room Tip: 2nd floor has a balcony and more privacy.

It's impossible to know where to start with saying about the wonderful things about this hotel; the rooms; the views of Tenerife, the amazing pool... The list goes on and on. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had a special offer which didn't include breakfast so the value for money was excellent. I don't think we would have paid 17€pp for breakfast.

I loved this hotel. It was really lovely and relaxing and the food was lovely. Lovely little gardens looking out to the sea. Bedroom was lovely and everything about the hotel was special. Took the ferry over from Tenerife to stay the night and was a lovely one night break. Will definitely come back and looking forward to it. Not a huge amount to do, but the one night break was perfect and something different.

Room Tip: room looking out to sea and gardens was lovely

Parador is perfect for a romantic getaway. The hotel surroundings have a historic ambiance that invite you to explode the hidden nooks and crannys of the area. It's 5 min by taxi from the ferry (costs around 5 e). I would not walk up the hill to get to the hotel, especially with luggage. Everyone at the reception and restaurant were really friendly and professional. I travelled alone and wanted a night of luxury after a budget hotel in Valle Gran Rey. Parador is not the place to meet other travellers, but if you're looking for a place for peace and quiet, this is the place. The only downside is that they only that wireless internet in the lobby area! That is a dealbreaker for some travellers.

Room Tip: I loved having a room facing the garden with my own patio and entrance to the garden!
