“High up overlooking airport, a bit of ugly Tenerife big tour operator real estate encroaching on beautiful La Palma”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2011

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.

Room Tip: Well, it has to be a sea view

IMPORTANT TIP When driving head to Breña Baja on the LP2 and take the hill to the right side of the Restaurant (LP206) called "Parrilla Casa Pancho" in Breña Baja, the hotel is a left turn about 2kms up this hill. There is a clear sign for the hotel on the road where you turn. It is about 9kms from the airport and should take no more than 15 minutes drive. Can be hard to locate.

The apartments are a decent size and are in OK condition, perhaps ready for a bit of a refresh but generally very good, clean with all you need. There is a nice pool area with sun beds. Breakfast is OK with plenty to eat. We booked half board, however the evening meal was a very small choice. However I imagine this was more likely due to the small number of guests staying, with only a few eating it was not possible to offer more. I would imagine when busy the food would be a much better choice, it was OK for what we paid.

Overall very acceptable friendly self catering apartments in a good central, if a little remote location to explore the beautiful island. A car of course is essential to stay here. Will suit couples who enjoy a quiet location as there are no bars or restaurants within walking distance. Self catering or B&B are perhaps the best options.

This aparthotel is not that easy to find and a bit of the beaten track so follow the directions carefully. It is quiet and not within walking distance of anywhere really so car hire is essential.

The apartments are are clean, spacious and comfortable with lovely ocean views from the balcony of the one we had.
You can see part of the airport in the distance but no problem because flights are few and there was no significant noise. In fact very quiet. No bar as such and no disco.

Nice pool and jacuzzi. We went self catering but had an evening meal six out of the seven nights. Bags of good wholesome food and very good value at 10 euros. Probably best to eat soon after the restaurant opens at 19.00 hours. We were allowed to keep our room at no extra charge until late in to the last day because we had an evening flight. No English T.V. while we were there either.

All the three staff we saw (receptionist, chef/waitress and cleaner) were really friendly and very helpful.

Very good value for money!

Room Tip: Ask specifically for a sea view.
