La Gomera is a jewel, and probably the top hotel is this one. Breakfast was outstanding and the food at dinner as well, very modern.
Kind of expensive.
Very professional, high standard hotel with superb clifftop location, lovely gardens and pool, and excellent food. Moonrise over Tenerife seen from the gardens is spectacular. Very good deals for older and younger customers.
Gorgeous property overlooking the port with fantastic sea views and lush gardens
Sewage smell from the bathrooms (we changed rooms twice)
Architecture, decoration, gardens, pool, breakfast, views, location
The garden's were stunning along with views. we also loved how much character the hotel has. Very relaxing, very tranquil
I didn't like that the "double" room i booked and paid for, was in fact a twin room with 2 separate beds - not very ideal for a young couple on a romantic weekend away.
Delightful ambiance and dramatic location. Breakfast excellent. Other food also excellent but rather expensive.
Few reasonably priced meals/snacks. Hotel is high above the town so a very steep trek (or 6-8 E taxi) to do a quick shop or to catch the buses to other parts of the island - a free mini-bus service to/from town would be an excellent service.
Although the parador was built about 20 years ago, it feels like it is 300 years old. Located on the top of a hill overlooking San Sebastian and the sea, it is a rather romantic setting. The parador oozes with charm and the room was comfortable and tastefully decorated. Service from staff working at Reception and at breakfast are excellent and efficient.
Nothing to do with the hotel as such: when we arrived by ferry at San Sebastian, no taxis would take us to the parador because it was not far enough. Taxi drivers on the island are rare, greedy and arrogant. We had to phone the hotel in order to have a taxi to pick us up. The advice is to arrange a taxi with the hotel beforehand. Breakfast: the "tortilla espanola" on one morning had HAM in it although it wasn't labelled as such. Equally, people were expecting to use the same utensils to pick up cheese and meat. The needs of vegetarians need to be more taken into account. The advice is to book a room on a top floor as we could hear foot steps, the noise of people talking normally, going to the toilets, etc... from the floor above.
We loved the atmosphere and antique decor and the feeling that we were guests in a stately home. Such a pleasant change from anonymous modern hotels. Easy access from the ferry and an excellent base for visiting the mountains.
Location on top of the rock above the city, rooms decoration, staff hospitality, swimming pool.
Breakfast a bit poor compared to the large hotels in other islands.
Hotel is very nice, typical spanish architecture, the best from the all 4 hotels in San Sebastian de la Gomera
The room was not good furnished.
