Reviewed September 18, 2008

Hotel Ibo Alfaro is really an outstanding property. Ina, the manager, is also outstanding. I have stayed here three times in the past 5 years, and it is always a memorable experience. Great breakfast buffet. On Gomera, you definitely need a car.

  • Liked — quiet, relaxing, scenic valley, not far to beach, gracious hostess
  • Disliked — Being on the side of the valley, a walk to village center and restaurants is not easy.

A warm welcome, a comfortable room, and an extensive buffet breakfast, this is a good choice for exploring the north-west of La Gomera. As well as the bedroom balcony, there are lots of outdoor areas to relax or sunbathe in.
Dinner is not served, so a car or taxi is advisable to reach the best restaurants in the area in the evening (Its an uphill walk back from the town centre)

It is impossible to recommend this unique hotel highly enough! It has gorgeous views, an exemplary hostess for whom nothing is too much trouble and it deserves much wider recognition. I'm almost scared to recommend it, in case it becomes over-subscribed, but the charming owner utterly deserves all the custom she can manage! It's off the beaten-track and run to very high standards of cleanliness. It is an old Canarian mansion which has been restored to a high-standard, it's decorated in a restrained and warm manner, and the main dining room is cozy and inviting - although if the weather's kind, you'll be on the terrace enjoying the glorious vista.

  • Liked — Very comfortable beds with high-quality linen
  • Disliked — Nothing really - I don't like little bunches of fake flowers, but that's just being picky!

Staying here is like being in paradise, you will see. Nice rooms in nice colours, fine balconies with valley and mountain views, good breakfast, wonderful atmosphere, very kind owner, best hikes (for example to Garajonay and/or to the coast) on the island. This hotel is a real gem: for its location, its rooms, its large terrace, its hospitality.

  • Liked — Everything is just how it should be
  • Disliked — There was nothing I didn't like
