I would return but would eat elsewhere.
Delightful location and accommodation. Reception staff extremely welcoming and extremely helpful -they go the extra mile. Dining and bar experiences... far less positive: food uninspiring, somewhat expensive and, in particular, the service was highly variable - and often off-hand. As a result our dining experiences negatively coloured our opinion of our overall stay.
The island of La Gomera is one of the smallest of the Canary Islands in the Atlantic. Thanks to its volcanic origins, it can boast of a multitude of fascinating valleys and idyllic sand beaches, such as the bay known as the Bay of Pigs, which was once a haven for hippie culture. You can spend a romantic holiday with an especially exotic touch here in the Parador de La Gomera, without having to do without comfort and stylish ambience. Once you’ve returned from your explorations through natural parks, lava valleys, and from encounters with the endearing Gomeros with their unique whistling language, you can retreat to the elegant Parador with nautical flair, to the swimming pool, and to the subtropical gardens.
The noble 4 star hotel Parador de La Gomera is defined by the typical island architecture. The property of this romantic hotel holds a generous outdoor pool with panorama view over the Atlantic and the island of Tenerife. Several sun terraces and an idyllic garden park with palms, subtropical vegetation, as well as a pretty veranda invite you to relax and loaf. The interior of this historic hotel on Gomera presents itself in rural style with antique furnishings, comfortable wicker armchairs, and small nautical souvenirs. The fine cuisine restaurant and the hotel bar both have bright, friendly rooms with open rafters and noble chandeliers. Gourmets will be pleased to come across the excellent, cuisine typical for the region in the Parador de La Gomera and perhaps order the local specialty, fish stew. A special highlight can be found in the elegant salons with velvet-covered wingback chairs, fine curtains, a fireplace, and old mirrors. The harbor, from which you can quickly visit Tenerife, is just 1 km from this 4 star hotel on Gomera.
