Stayed in this hotel with friends for one week. The rooms are tiny, but adequate. Double beds aren't provided, a double room consists of 2 x single beds and the rooms are so small the beds are jammed together. We had a little balcony in our room, just about fit 2 people standing on it and you had to duck... More

We (between 4-8 people) have stayed in the Micolau twice now and both times the experience has been top class. The welcome has been warm and helpful and any questions or requests we’ve had had been dealt with quickly and with a smile. The food is top class (best in Arinsal - try the fajitas and the steak) & reasonably... More

Clean, newly refurbed, great rooms for two. Rooms are small, and you need to live tidily, but they are great rooms, comfortable, TV, phone, lovely bathrooms, built in wardrobes. If you can live tidily for a week, this is a great place to stay. I think they had about 12 rooms. All twins, very nice restaurant downstairs, with a small... More

Just returned from Arinsal and had a great stay in this hotel. Rooms have all been recently refurnbished with nicely finished bathrooms. Breakfast and a tasty 3 course meal in the evening provided every day added to the value for money.

Stayed here at the start of January for my first snowboarding trip.

“Avoiding the first floor is a must if you like to sleep between the hours of 7-9:30am or 10pm-12am. There is a bar/breakfast room right underneath the first floor rooms. This is not a hotel for couples, or families.”
