“no frills but friendly”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

this hotel has all you would need but is not luxurious. The owners are friendly and helpful. We stayed three nights but only had one dinner there, which was average Canarian food..
Vilaflor is a lovely village and handy for the pine forests and el Teide.
Our main problem was in booking on-line. The German website refused our credit card, and then demanded to be paid by bank transfer, which would have cost us a lot more as we are not in the Euro.
We sent two e-mails saying we wished to pay by credit card, but received no reply.
Eventually we contacted the Hotel once we were in Tenerife, and he had no booking for us. He also said that despite the website stating "there are only two rooms left" he had no bookings at all for those dates. We paid him directly in cash when we left, and this was marginally cheaper than the website price.

Reviewed 12 April 2011

Located in the centre of Vilaflor half way up the south slope of Mount Teide. A peaceful haven after the coastal strip of Tenerife. El Sombrerito is unfussy with no frills but all the necessities. Rooms are comfortable, clean and bathroom had bath and plenty of hot water. Food is good standard Canary Islands fare. Excellent base for walking and trips to the summit of the volcano.
