This hotel is in one of the island’s most scenic spots. Along with great views, you get three main pools and two restaurants.
This place is built into a cliff, which means you get panoramic views over the island of La Gomera and Los Gigantes. Playa de Arena is about a 15-minute stroll away, and you’re 5 minutes’ walk from a sandy beach.
The Barcelo has three huge pools and a good range of eating spots, too, as well as a snack bar which stays open late in summer. There’s also a handful of bars and restaurants just outside the hotel.
This buffet restaurant serves a range of international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's live show cooking with meat, fish and pasta dishes. Not only that but you can enjoy your meal while admiring the views of La Gomera. There's a dress code here, with long trousers for gentlemen at dinner.
On some days, this restaurant serves meat grills and a dessert buffet selection. On other days it becomes a Tapas bar, complete with a choice of Spanish wines and a terrace with views of Mount Teide. It's open on selected days and there's a smart-casual dress code - men are asked to wear full-length trousers at dinner.
This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and wasn't disappointed. There were plenty of sunbeds (although to get a view of the sea you need to get there early). There were notices not to reserve but as usual ignored. The bar staff were very quick and efficient both by the pool and in the theatre in the evening. The food was good especially the 'show cooking' which meant you could have fresh cooked while you waited. The rooms were very clean and comfortable - its nice to have a sofa to sit on instead of just the bed. If you can, get a room on a higher floor for a better view although floor 1 (which I was on ) was still ok, just looked at the sea through the fence. The only thing that let it down was the late checkout shower. Previously we were allocated an empty room to shower and change, this time we had to use the spa which was hardly big enough for two people (don't take your case - no room) Overall though it is a lovely place for a relaxing holiday - enjoy!More
