Spent a lovely relaxing week at these wonderful clean apartments, i had an upper with views to the sea and Gomera, total bliss. I was a solo traveller and felt very safe in this resort. I found the chinese pekin house was perfect for a carryout meal and sat on my balcony eating washed down with a glass or 3...

Have been going to El Sombrero for about 12 years. Never tire of the place. The staff are brilliant really helpful and always ready to help. The apartments are kept lovely and clean with plenty of fresh linen. Well equipped and spacious with good sized balconies. About 5min walk downhill to two outdoor lido's and the marina where you will...

Just returned from 2 weeks at theses apartments. Usually book through tour company but this time direct to the owners. We had a 2 bed apartment which was large and on the corner of the grounds giving an amazing view to La Gomera and towards the harbour. We arrived late but directed quickly to our apartment and told to pay...

Well. What can I say about this wee gem of a place. Wasn't sure what to expect as I went by reviews when I booked it. Was important that we had an amazing holiday as it was my first with the kids for years. Self catering apartment about 30 minutes from the airport. 3 bedrooms , living room, kitchen and...

My wife and I rented a two bedroom apartment at the Sombrero and found it very satisfactory. The apartment was very large, lounge and kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms. The balcony was large as well, plenty of room for table and chairs. A lot of steps everywhere made it difficult for me with a dodgy knee but we got by. The...

We've been to Los Gigantes several times, in the big hotel and in a private rented apartment. We knew El Sombrero apartments were there in an ideal location, but we didn't know which travel company used them. So, when I got an email from Thomas Cook offering these apartments at a very reasonable rate we thought it would be rude...

Booked a week in late February and we were pleased with our choice. The apartments are well located, just on the edge of the commercial area which is just a few minutes walk away. The marina is about a 10 minute walk. The apartments are up an incline but not as much as some reviewers suggested. Los gigantes is hilly...

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of February. The apartment is clean, comfortable and very spacious. We usually stay in a hotel, but enjoyed self catering as Los Gigantes has some good bars and restaurants. We loved the peaceful friendly atmosphere of the apartments and the resort. The Tipsy Terrace just opposite is a great place to...

Stayed here for a week at the end of February. Although you have lots of steps to get to your apartment the location of the apartments were excellent. The room was large enough with a separate kitchen and bathroom. There was a safe in the room, which you have to hire at a cost and optional TV for hire. Rooms...

“Most higher rooms have lovely sea view, ones by reception a bit noisy with the traffic or late night revellers.But generally ok.”
