Puerto De Las Nieves

Reviewed 28 March 2012

Nice rooms and bathrooms, but the overbath shower is terrible - the pressure and temperature vary continuously. Excellent breakfast at first, but the pain au chocolat and croissants were not replaced. Hotel has a spa (free to guests but the indoor pool isn't for swimming), and if you want a bathrobe you need to get one from the spa. The Faneque restaurant was closed apart from breakfast, but this wasn't a problem as there are other good restaurants in Puerto - El Dedo de Dios, El Capita and Puerto de Laguete were all excellent and very reasonable, but avoid the Laguete (next to the windmill). The bars on the promenade are also recommended for lunch - we liked Bar Rama.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms away from the street (Nos 209 to 215) have balconies that get the sun from late morn...

Well situated, lovely friendly staff (it helps to try to speak a bit of spanish!- there and in local restaurant - except at Dode de Dios restaurant!!)
Excellent breakfast - Just hoping quality of this hotelis maintained under new ownership by manager of Dode de Dios - Great pity the Faneque restaurant was closed for lunch and/or dinner a little while ago as locals met said it was the best in area.

We stayed at this hotel in March 2011. The staff were friendly, the rooms were good and clean (although looked a bit worn), breakfast was very good, and the spa was most relaxing. There isn't a great deal going on in Puerto de las Nieves, which is good if you don't like lots of tourists. The restaurants are numerous. Try Dedo de los Dias. The staff are very friendly and the food is very reasonable. If you like walking go up to the Ageate valley where it is very beautiful and quiet. A bus runs to the end of the valley a few times a day. You can the bus up, do you walk, and then get the bus back. Or you can walk all the way up. To get to Puerto de las Nieves you can get frequent buses from Las Palmas.

Very highly recommended for people looking for a small friendly but quality serviced hotel at a price better that expected, tremendous value for money. The bedrooms are situated over 2 floors, the 1st floor being large rooms with sitting area's, the 2nd floor large rooms with a large outside balcony, sun chairs etc. The hotel interior an interesting modern almost cruise ship design. The level of comfort (beds particularly) excellent, cleanliness very high, standard of service better than most hotels of higher ratings, nothing was too much trouble as shown by the whole team, in particular, Veronica and Eleanor on reception. Do also take advantage of the fantistic spa facilities.
Unfortunately the hotel wasn't operating the restaurant but after the splendid breakfast, which again, was better than 5star hotels provide, one didn't want much else for the remaining day (apart from a beer or two)
The beach, ferry to Tenerife, is only a few minutes walk away. This is not an area for soft sand beach lovers, be prepared for laying down platforms and pebbly areas, go prepared with lilo's etc. Puerto de las Nieves caters for every type of food lovers, however it caters mainly for the lunch time eater with fresh fish, catch of the day. The restaurants are not "cordon bleu" much more geared in providing quality food at more than reasonable prices, the whole experience was refreshing nobody out to take advantage of tourists. Great hotel, great for relaxing, highly recommended.

I spent 4 days in Agaete for a short break, come to this hotel by chance on the net and decided to reserve here. Very well done. The staff is very helpful (20 minutes after having sent an e-mail asking for directions from airport to Agaete, I had the answer back with everything very well explained). The room was large, comfortable, very clean and with all the facilities, included a large terrase with sunshade and deckchair. Free wi-fi everywhere.
Location is very good, 5 minutes from the beautiful lavic shore of Puerto de las Nieves and all the main restaurants of this tiny village, and 10 minutes walk from Agaete itself.
Moreover, a very good and not expensive Spa (thalassotherapy swimming pool is free for hotel guests) comes as the top of the whole great deal.
The location (north west of Gran Canaria) is beautiful, and not crowded with tourist, with nice trekking walks on the coast-cliffs and the beautiful botanic garden of Agaete just around (all details for the excursions and leaflets were provided by the hotel staff).
I definetely suggest it.

On the whole Hotel Puerto de las Nieves was a real treat. My room was lovely - it was spacious and had a nice 'living area' with sofa and sea views. The pool/spa was also great - the water was really warm and the experience was very relaxing. Its situtation just a few meters from the restaurants and beach with crashing waves was just perfect. The only downside to the hotel was some of the staff. The lady who greeted me made me feel very uncomfortable because the request I made on the booking website was not received. Then it surprised me that other staff members either stared at or ignored guests when they left or enterred the hotel. In summary, not welcoming but very comfortable.
