Hotel is charming and in a quite setting. Basic facilities but okay for an overnight stay not a longer period.

Spent one night here whilst driving up through the mountains which was a scary experience.The hotel was good enough for one night and served its purpose.The restaurant was not open so we thought we would eat at the cafe/bar/restaurant next door to the hotel only to find that they closed at 17.30.We then booked a table at the hotel opposite and found the food inedible so we returned it and refused to pay.Don’t go to this restaurant.!

4/10 Fair

5 stats for location, but not good otherwise
In the winter this place is very cold as it has little heating, thin bedding, draughty buildings. Generally old and worn out inventory. Needs a major upgrade. Price high in relation to what you get.

Genuine Hospitality
The owners of this hotel were genuinely kind and helpful from the moment we arrived. The location in the mountains is a perfect place to start your hikes through the interior of Gran Canaria and the breakfast is well worth the addition as it is both well stocked to get you going and, being a small, more remote location, there aren't much for other options. The hospitality alone is worth the stay, plus the amazing views found down any trail that start just a few minutes walk away. Highly recommended original, local, and authentic hotel.
