Not a big resort by any means but everything you would need for a great holiday. Well run beach, nice bars and restaurants. We will return

Relatively quiet, fairly flat with a picturesque black sandy beach, views of the mountains & the island of La Gomera. Full of excellent restaurants. We would definitely go again!
