I booked this on booking.com for 30 Euros a night, it sounded great. To have a car is a must if you stay here, i think, i do not think it is on the Palmeros bus routes, but i could be wrong. It took a long time to find on my own in a car, i must have gone up and down every lane in San Jose, but then i spotted it , it is NOT on the main road but a little downhill. Look for the signs to Finca Armado. The complex is a little like the ones that are found on Tenerife and Lanzarote, catering for mass tourism organised by big tour operators. This does not really fit in well in cutesy picturesque La Palma. Dont get me wrong, the rooms are very attractive, all rattan, roomy and there is even a swimming pool, Someone even swam in it 1 day too in November. Being high up on one of the steepest islands in the world means that there is a cold wind blowing in November through February. Somehow the hotel is badly positioned, a concrete blot on the wonderful, wonderful Isla Bonita .
Checkin seemed to take a long time, good customer service is not high on the priority of the workers, but they were sort of friendly despite it all.
The appatments looked nice from outside but were a bit battered , inside they were beautiful. Mine had a sea view and airport view too. But November in La Palma can be coolish up in the hils.
I stayed here as a change to other more bucolic places, the price was good, reception slow and lacking in customer service but this is La Palma.
There is a supermercado Spar, about 1 km away.
I suppose that most people will stay here as part of a package tour, but this is NOT what La Palma is about really.
