What a gem of a hotel! Yes it's quiet, but that was exactly what we wanted.
The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful - a lovely mix of Moorish and modern design done very tastefully. The standard rooms are a fantastic size and ours had a lovely balcony overlooking the pool, white rooftops and the sea beyond. The pool area and gardens were also well looked after and a lovely place to relax for the day.
The breakfasts were lovely - a different selection of fruits, hams and cheeses everyday; a lovely basket of fresh bread; yoghurt and cereals; freshly squeezed orange juice; and your choice of eggs or omelette cooked on demand. No complaints whatsoever. Dinner was also very good, although we chose to eat out a couple of evenings as the food at the hotel has more of an international than a local feel. However every meal we had was delicious. For those look for local seafood we can recommend La Marea in Playa Honda.
The service in the hotel was exemplary - always with a smile, and although they are not always standing in the bar (which seems a bit pointless if the maximum occupancy is only 28) they are always easy to find and happy to help without being intrusive. Their linguistic skills are excellent - we were really impressed with the English and German spoken.
The only slight downside for us was that there wasn't a beach within easy walking distance. It would be lovely to be able to spend a morning on the beach and an afternoon by the pool, but this isn't possible without a car. We did hire a car and went to Playa de Papagayo near Playa Blanca which is beautiful, and also visited the enormous market in Teguise on Sunday which we can thoroughly recommend.
All in all if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing, friendly hotel in which to recuperate from the stresses of everyday life then this is the place for you. Thank you for a wonderful week!
