“Really good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

We much enjoyed staying in this friendliest of hotels. The family staff were all first rate - nothing was too much trouble. Even the very disappointing weather didn't mar our overall enjoyment of the island as a whole and of Hermigua as a quiet base from which to centre our walking holiday. The weather is generally better on the south-west side of the island, but this was quieter and probably prettier. Excellent breakfasts but no restaurant for main meals - but this didn't worry as we always like to eat around anyway.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room with balcony is best and don't worry about the road - it is very quiet

Loved everything about the hotel and the friendly hosts. The casa was very well located, by the church & the bus stop was less than 5 minutes walk away. The room was very large and nicely furnished, clean and comfortable with an excellent breakfast (additional plus was the scrumptious tasting fried eggs & Nespresso coffee).There was a very cosy lounge, a self service mini bar with snacks and a pool on the top floor with amazing views of Hermigua. The hosts were very helpful with walking tips around the area and I was dropped me off at the National Park Visitor Centre on a Sunday when no taxis was available. I had most of my dinners in El Faro,15 minutes walk from the hotel, the fresh fish there was excellent.

Truly beautiful hotel,wonderfully helpful and informative staff, lots of space in rooms and public areas, adds up to an excellent few days stay in January. We would recommend the walk from Alto
Garajonay back to the hotel There is a restaurant on route , taxi from the rank opposite the hotel will take you to the top for around 25 euros.
The drive over to the beach restaurant nearby is not for the vertigo sufferers, but a must to visit.
The breakfast is of such good quality that you have to be careful not to stuff yourself silly. All in all we wished we had stayed here for a few extra days.

I can just agree with the praise of everyone else. This is a great hotel, great value for money. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. The hotel is quite unique. They only have eight rooms so it gives you privacy and a homely feeling. They have nice common areas with views of the church and town including a nice pool on the roof.

Our room did not have a window (which we were well aware of) and the hot water in the shower did not really last for two people showering after each other (but it is the same in all Canary hotels I have visited). Apart from that there is nothing negative to be said about this hotel.

I think La Gomera is so much nicer than charter destinations like Playa de las Americas. This hotel is a good base for hikes on the central and northern part of the island. Take the taxi to Alto de Garajonay and hike back via El Cedro. The final decent is a bit strenuous but otherwise it is a very pleasant walk.

If you take the bus to the hotel don't get off when the driver announces Hermigua. It is a very long but narrow village. The hotel is just next to the yellow and white church a few stops down along the main road (you can't miss it).

The Tasca Telemaco restaurant down the hill past the church is one of the best places to eat. Service is a bit slow but food was great, especially the first night we were there.

Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed for one night after a long hike downhill from Alto Garajonay. The hotel is placed at the main street trough the valley - facing a small square and the church. You feel welcome the moment you enter. Being the only one checking in this day they knew our names. No credit cards need to be shown upon arrival - they trust you! We got one of the two rooms facing the square at first floor. The room was a very cosy decor and is spacious enough for the two of us. The bath room is big and brand new. The amendities are to be compaired with mush more luxourious and expensive hotels: Big de luxe towels, shavers toothbrushes etc. - even slippers! What a releive after walking for 6 hours straight. The old fashion window and shutter arrangement is adding to the charm. At our floor we found a large common area with sofas etc. As well as a self service areas with coffe, cold drinks and snacks at very decent prices (you just write what you consume in a book and pay at departure). The Cleanlyness is fantastic. The breakfast (included in the stay) is absolutely over what you expect. And most important of all: The service and friendlyness is the best we ever got at any hotel in the world. (and we have tried quite a few) - we will be back!

Room Tip: Face the street, first floor has only 2 rooms, second floor has balcony rooms.

Well positioned hotel, next to the church and just a few minutes to a good restaurant.

Good sized room, absolutely spotless with all the items you need.

Excellent breakfast, fresh fruit, fresh bread, items cooked to order.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Unfortunately a bit chilly to use the pool, but its situation was just lovely.

There could have been better lighting in the room and could have had more power points for charging phones etc.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have a balcony - wish that had been available when we booked.

Very enjoyable hotel with tastefully decorated rooms, a lovely pool and excellent breakfast. The hotel is situated in the center of the charming Hermigua valley. The hotel owners are geniously helpful. We forgot some clothes when we left so the staff brought them to our next travel location (25 kilometres from Hermigua) on their own initiative!
