We were booked to stay at La Casona de Yaiza for one week. The Owner, Jose, was there to meet us on arrival. He showed us around the hotel and explained that we were the only people booked to stay there that week and they were planning some maintenance work so it would be good for us to move to his other hotel in Yaiza - Casa de Hilario - as there would be other guests there. We decided to stay for 1 night at La Casona de Yaiza and then transfer to Casa de Hilario the next day. Jose picked us up the next morning and drove us to Casa de Hilario, which was only 2 minutes away in the car.
Jose showed us a slection of rooms to stay in at Casona de Yaiza and we chose a double room on the upper level overlooking the pool with a great view across the hills of the Timanfaya National Park. The bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom were clean and tidy. There was a small television, complimentary water and cosy bathrobes. We spent the afternoon by the pool which was very quiet and peaceful, although not heated so pretty cold!
Yaiza is a sleepy village/town with few bars and restaurants. We managed to find a couple of nice restaurants and a cafe/bar (next to the supermarket) which were open in the evening, all of which were nice. We ate in the restaurant at La Casona de Yaiza one evening which turned out to be the best meal we had on the island, and we found some very good restuarants during our stay.
The appeal of La Casona de Yaiza is the fact that you are staying away from the main resorts in the peace and quiet of the countryside. It is recommended that you hire a car to travel around the island and to have more choice in the evenings when it comes to meals. The Hotel itself has it's own unique style and Jose was a very welcoming host. Staying at La Casona de Yaiza almost felt like you were a guest at a friend's home, and although Jose or staff members are not always on-site Jose is only a phone call away if you have any issues.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to explore a different side to Lanzarote - it's a beautiful place to relax.
