A lovely hotel in a quiet and secluded location, perfect for a romantic get-a-way. It is a great location for venturing up the hill into the National Park, or you can enjoy nice walks around the hotel and down into Vilaflor. The Spa was excellent - bathrobes are given out at reception and then you can enjoy the jacuzzi, plunge pool, sauna, saunarium, steam room and pool. The gym was better equipped than expected and had all the basics that you need. The staff could not do enough to help during our stay. We ate at the restaurant on a couple of nights and the food was good but perhaps a little over priced. There's a nice large lounge to relax in and board games if you wish to play.
A car is essential for staying here - but then you'd want one anyway to explore the local scenery.
This hotel is run by a very friendly and welcoming family, who were just delightful - enjoyed post-dinner backgammon with their 11 year old son. It has a great views; we loved sitting on our balcony looking down to the sea, 10 miles away, and surrounding wooded hills. It makes a great base from which to explore El Teide and the National Park with its stunning rock formations. Vilaflor itself struck us as a rather straggling village; the hotel is walking distance from cafes and restaurants - inaccessible in our case as we need a wheelchair and the gradients are steep. But the hotel does provide dinner on request, an option which most guests seemed to take up.
This hotel is located in Canary's style traditional 19th century building, run by very friendly local people, who cook and serves delicious Spanish breakfast in cosy restaurant with mind blowing view. Room cleanness/comfort was very good in my opinion, condition of the hotel was great too.
I feel like I have known a lot more about Canary's Island culture and people by staying there for a change to holiday resorts that are mainly located in the South of the Island.
