This is a beautiful and tranquil hotel way away from your average Tenerife holidaymaker. Near the charming town of Garachicho which has some splendid restaurants including La Taskita and Casa Gaspar, it really was an oasis of calm and tranquility for two people who had just gone through a stressful move and two recent bereavements.
Big pluses are the pool which was very pretty- tho could have been warmer; it is advertised as heated- a tennis court and of course a superb patio with palm trees and hundreds of potted plants.
A few words of warning- the coffee is just terrible and the cooked food at breakfast pretty cold. The honesty bar is a good idea but they let themselves down by rules such as no drinks in the rooms, which since we had a terrace (room 18- it is definitely worth paying a bit more for superior rooms 15-18) we found a little petty. I reported two things wrong with the room- while these were fixed promptly and charmingly I got the feeling people don't often complain and things won't get done until you do. Staff were friendly to an extent but there was a nagging suspicion they don't see your faces anymore, just the money you are bringing in. Most guests were older than us and nightlife is non-existent. You want tranquillity, you have certainly got it!
We did have a lovely and relaxing time and i do recommend it- if they put in a bit more effort and did not appear to rest on laurels this would be amazing!
