This hotel is just interesting for the location. Directly on the surfer beach and near to El Medano Center. Near the airport, air planes didn't disturb our sleep. Don't stay longer than one - two nights, we used it coming from El Hierro and waiting for the flight back home. This hotel needs a huge refitting, the carpets at the...

In general is a nice hotel. It is very different from those giant hotels that you normally meet all around. If you are lucky with the room, you get an awesome view over the beach of El Medano. Location is really top. Keep in mind, there is no WIFi in the rooms, the one you get close to the pool...

This hotel would only get one star, but the friendly helpful staff have pushed my rating up. The hotel itself needs much improving. 1. Internet is extremely limited. It needs proper wifi throughout. 2.The rooms are hot and bathrooms smelly. The rooms need air conditioning and bathrooms need proper forced ventilation. 3.The upper floors are far too hot and airless,...

It was clean, staff very attentive, no smoking even on the balcony, had to sign a form to say that, at €150 fine. Breakfast was good a great selection. Dinner Ok, but could do with a microwave to warm the food up, was cold. wouldn't go in the pool far too cold.

Lovely hotel, great location . Although old fashioned in some ways, the hotel will fit real free spirit people of all ages. Mainly Dutch and German residents. The pool is so closed to the sea there is hardly a point of having it except for a great background for selfies... I can't wait to go back there. There is no...
