An enormous thank you to Sonja and the team at Gara Hotel for a wonderful week in Tenerife! My wife and I and our 18 month old daughter, Faye, had a ground floor room and felt thoroughly at home. The room opened onto the inner courtyard which was very convenient for breakfast and for our daughter to run around and...

Lovely hotel run by very helpful and friendly couple. Feels authentic Canarian in style and is in the perfect location to experience Garachico. Garachico the most lovely town. Two things worth mentioning if you are booking: double rooms consist of two single beds, if you want a double bed ask for the single room. I feel that the breakfast could...

+ the roof terrace is definitely a major selling point. The views over the sea are gorgeous and it's a comfy place to sit and enjoy a book + our room was very light. We had a sea view rooms with windows on 2 sides - not sure about the other rooms. + the rooms are quite small but pleasantly...

Dear Ms. Gina, Thanks for your feedback. We are sorry you did not enjoy our breakfast, which is comprised by around 67 different products - of which 6 or 7 vary depending on the day and of course the season (fresh products are provided and vary depending on this as well).

The hotel Gara is one of the best hotel I ever stayed. We spent a week here and did not want to leave. If you like small, cozy, quite places, this is the right address for you. Gara is a relative small hotel, the local rural decoration is wonderful, everywhere a lot of flowers. There is a wonderful terrace in...

The hotel is arranged around a courtyard, in an attractive setting down a narrow street with the back of the hotel (with terrace) overlooking the sea. Rooms are set on two floors and open either directly on to the courtyard or a galleried terrace. The rooms are comfortable with good clean shower rooms, if maybe slightly small. There is only...

This was our first visit to Tenerife. If you want an out of the way unspoilt and characterful small Canarian town this is the place. If you want a beach side holiday complex look elsewhere. The Gara hotel is one of the most friendly and welcoming place we have stayed in. We went with our son, partner and 16 month...

There are a lot of positives to this hotel. The location is right on the main boulevard with a sun deck/cocktail area that overlooks the pools and is great for people watching. When we were there there was a lot of wave action from storms out to see that made it even more interesting. The hotel is a hybrid of...

Only disappointment was the breakfast which could have...

Gara Hotel was a perfect place for my three-day stay in Garachico. The hotel is perfectly located in Garachico -- near the main street and a stone's throw from the coast. Both the balcony and sun roof overlook the ocean and a castle from the 1500s, offering stunning views of the coast. And the best part of the hotel is...
