While there are many good things about Palmizana, visitors should be aware that there are some strong negatives as well. The "tropical gardens" consist of lots of cacti, the coastline is very rocky and there are very few bays; the rocks at sea level are also covered with sea urchins so it is hard to find a safe place to swim. Being quite remote, the water supply to the rooms and the electricity is temperamental, and check that the room you have booked does indeed have air-con - its only installed in some of the rooms. Again, some rooms also have only a small strip of flagstones outside, rather grandly described as a terrace... and did we mention the swarms of wasps?
In spite of all that, the family running the hotel are charming, friendly and incredibly helpful, and the food is fresh and well cooked. Not suitable for children and only go if you are happy to rough it.
