I read about this charming hotel many years ago, and it was on my list to stay there. My expectations were quite high. Some experiences were positive, others less...
The village of Yaiza consists of almost only white houses. It is a very charming, lovely village. La Casona de Yaiza is located a couple of hundred meters from the center. It is a small hotel with only 8 or 10 rooms. Every room is different, and that makes it special. We had a very beautiful room on the upper floor, directly above the swimming pool. The room was in good shape, all in blue colour which is lovely. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom and big shower as well.
There is no air condition in the room. Temperature outside was 35 degrees and inside the room it was hard to fall asleep - it was much too hot.
Breakfast was quite rudimentary, little choice. Things which were there were ok to nice, but very limited choice. You can dine eiter inside or outside. We opted for a table outside which was very nice, and food was good. Keep in mind that this is a boutique style, tiny hotel. It attracts people who love and need PEACE and intimacy. Noone who comes here is looking for noise and entertainment. However, during dinner time there was such loud pop music that we decided to take our food upstairs to our room. We found it so silly to stay in a QUIET place where quietness was destroyed by a music style which is opposite of what Lanzarote and Yaiza respects. The waiter realized that we and also other clients were upset. He changed the tape and things turned to be fine...
The detail which bothered us most was the fact that the garden was not very well kept. There is a huge and marvellous bougainvillea bush. Of course such a plant needs care, and leaves which fall down have to be taken. There were hundreds or thousands of leaves on the floor. It would be a matter of 1 hour or 2 hours of cleaning every day to give a neat look to the garden. When we were there it looked quite neglected and far away from being cared. The pool area? Funny. I liked it a lot nevertheless it is small and narrow. My friend did not like it and felt sort of locked in there.
All in all I would turn back here, I liked it. August is a bad month to travel, it is much too hot. If one comes here in the winter, the lack of air condition is not a problem. And I really hope that the owner in the future will take 10-20€ per day into his hands to keep the garden in better shape. The hotel is so nice, so lovely, so cute. But to be honest, upon arrival we were quite shocked how neglected the gardens looked with all those hundreds or thousends of Bougainvillea flowers on the floor. It is a must to keep public areas clean and neat....
