We moved over to Casa de Hilario following a 1 night stay at her sister hotel, La Casona de Yaiza. La Casona de Yaiza was due to have some maintenance work done that week so the Owner, Jose, recommended we move to Hilario. I'm glad we did - both hotels are beautiful but this one was our favourite.
The hotel itself is located on a hillside just outside of the sleepy town of Yaiza. The views from the front terrace (we sat here each morning the eact breakfast) were lovely - you can see down into the pretty town and across the hills of the Timanfaya National Park. The hotel is unique in style - an oriental theme runs throughout with beautiful paintings, furniture and huge windows. There is a small heated pool (which got very warm in the afternoons!) with sunlougers. Again, the view from the poolside was fabulous. The hotel is extremely peaceful - as there are only 9 rooms you find that you are the only guest there a lot of the time. It feels as though you are staying at someone's home rather than at a hotel!
Jose is extremely helpful and friendly - he booked a hire car for us and was there every morning and evening to check everyone is ok. Although the hotel is not permanently staffed, Jose is just a phone call away if you need anything.
The breakfast was great - cereal, fruit, bread, cheese, a selection of sliced meats, yogurt, juice, eggs etc. Our room was huge (room number 4) - the bed was firm but very comfortable and could have accommodated 3 easily! There was a beautiful wall painting in our room and a huge shower and twin sinks in the bathroom. The only downside was that there was no fridge and no air conditioning, but this was not a major issue for us.
The main appeal of Yaiza is that you are staying away from the main tourist resorts. Yaiza is a small, pretty, countryide town with a couple of restaurants and a bar which is open in the evening. It is not a place to go for the nightlife (which was fine by us) and it is recommended that you hire a car to get around the island.
We had a great time staying at Casa de Hilario - it's a beautiful hotel in a great location. We will definitely be returning one day!
