Upon leaving our Thomson flight the masses went one way onto coaches whilst we were met by a local taxi company and transferred to the hotel La Palma Romantica in Barlevento. It was clear from the journey north and upon arrival, the location was somewhat remote and following a walk down the mountain on Saturday morning to Barlevento it was also apparent the climb back to the hotel was somewhat challenging. The hotel is in an idyllic location with good facilities and we were fortunate to be allocated an upgraded room with stunning views down the mountain and to the ocean beyond, on clear days we were able to see the island of Tenerife. The staff were attentive and on one occassion even changed the menu to accommodate our requirement. With a car rented we were able to get out and discover this beautiful island although driving around the mountains was a little frightening. The weather was not too hot but perfect for the vacation and upon our return we have already discussed with our travel company a return visit in May next year. If you visit this island and go north as we did make sure you hire a car, it is a remote location and if you want to explore a car is the best way to do it.
