The recent reviews we have read of this hotel are very fair and balanced. It is a small peaceful island and during our tour, we saw no other hotel to compare with the Parador. It only claims to be a three star hotel and it certainly lives up to that rating.
There has been past mention of poor sun beds by the pool. These must have been replaced because we found the excellent.
The hotel has free wifi which works better in some places than others but was good enough for email and web searching.
We paid extra for a sea view which was lovely but the sliding doors to the balcony did not seal so the noise of the nearby sea was enough to disturb our sleep the first night. The poorly fitting doors also meant there was a constant draught moving the curtains at night. We were beginning to wonder why we had paid extra for a disturbed night's sleep but the second night was much better and the view worth it!
The location is remote but it is easy to reach Valverde by car. El Hierro is not the place to go unless you like remote. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. There could have be a more attentive barman and the single waiter at dinner was kept busy. Dinner was very pleasant with a limited choice but well cooked food. There was some pleasant local wines.
We had trouble operating the shower. We could not direct the water to the shower head from the mixer tap and it seemed to be either very hot or cold without much in between. One of our bath towels had a large rip in it which is not what you would expect at any Parador. We pointed this out to the maid in the morning who apologised profusely but then just threw the towel in with the rest of the laundry so no doubt someone else will get it soon!
