We enjoyed our stay on El Hierro. The hotel and the land around are very, very nice and peacefull. The staff is professionnal but almost speaks only spanish. The room is nice, clean and confortable. In the morning, the rising sun on the ocean sun is spectacular. It's a dream. Just a little thing in the room: the french Window is old and difficult to close If you go there, don't miss the restaurant "La pena" for the evening meal. 30 Minutes from the parador by car. The food is very good and the panorama spectacular. It's something to do. It's a dream too. It was a very good stay. Thank you Philippe (BELGIUM)

The best aspect of this Parador was the excellence of the public areas - lounges, terraces, pool and Jacuzzi. However, our room was not as large as you would expect for the price and was badly in need to refurbishment. Staff were friendly but many more are needed. It took a long time to get service from the bar and the single waiter was very hard-pressed to serve all the tables and as a result, some of our food arrived cold. All in all, it did not match up to one's expectations of a Parador.

Reception was excellent, very friendly, welcoming and efficient. Our bedroom with the sea view was very comfortable, well appointed with an excellent balcony. The sea view was spectacular. The restaurant was brilliant. The waiter who stectacularly served all the guests on his own did so with panache and efficiency. The food was delicious and the choice was excellent. Breakfast was a delight. Fruit and vegetable kebabs, tomato pulp to spread on one's toast plus all the usual foods. The location was fantastic. We took a short taxi ride from the port and after the tunnel our first view was the Parador nestled by the sea. A dream location. We enjoyed the gardens and swam in the sea water pool. We relaxed, enjoyed our peaceful surroundings, the service, our fantastic sea view and walked locally. We will go back in May 2014.
