We stayed in this beautiful and very interestingly laid out building and garden with fantastic views in January 2009. We enjoyed it so much that we are going to stay there again next week (Feb 2010). We are very much looking forward to it.
As it says in the previous reviews, the owners could not be more helpful, friendly and accomodating if they tried . . . A very pleasant couple indeed. Herman even drove and parked my hire car for me when I was getting a bit nervous about the narrow road and steep slopes just outside the hotel. (I never was a very good driver !)
One point that has not been stressed enough by other reviewers is that all the food served at Hotel Anaterve is 100% top quality and totally vegetarian. They really are excellent cooks ! For veggies like us, this would always be fantastic but it is an exceptionally welcome treat if you are staying on La Gomera for a couple of weeks. There a very few other restaurants on the island where (as non-Spanish speakers) you can easily order a decent vegetarian meal.
Here is a tip that might help you if you are staying at Hotel Anaterve for the first time and arriving in Vallehermoso by car . . . Unless you have a far better satnav than us, you probably will get navigated only as far as the town centre. There is one big free car park in centre of town. The hotel is perched high on the slopes above it.
I suggest that rather than try and find the hotel yourself (which is a bit tricky), give them a call from the car park. They will come out onto their balcolny and get you to flash and switch on your lights. Once they know which car you are in. They will then stay on the phone while they navigate you to the hotel which is about a 8-10 minute slow winding drive away. It worked a treat for us anyway.
Keep up the good work guys !
