This place is an "absolute gem", we stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of July/ first week in August, family of 4 ( 2 teenage kids). The bungalow we stayed in was well appointed,very clean, tidy with a new modern bathroom. The bungalows are in an excellent location, only a couple of mins drive from the El Paso town centre & within easy access of beaches & outdoor activities, also the views from this site are pretty good, looking down towards the sea one way & a mountain back drop behind. Alan the owner is very hospitable & went out of his way to loan us maps & guide books along with tips on the best places to swim & snorklel.
La Palma is a beautiful island, it's not very touristy, compared to some of the other islands, which we really liked, the locals are friendly & the food is good & inexpensive.
We are a well travelled family & would highly recomend Los Gauches Bungalows & La Palma to others.
In January, at 600m above sea level, it is cool in the evenings. The wall heaters were very welcome. The bungalows are large, clean, adequately equipped (no oven or microwave) and have a great view over Tazacorte and the ocean beyond. The pool was not heated when we were there and was too cold to swim in. They cater more for Germans than English - only 2 English TV channels - both news. But you don't come to La Palma to watch TV. The island is very interesting geologically and botanically. Great walks, a good, black beach at nearby Puerto Naos. Get a weather forecast before heading for the top of the main volcano. The observatory is closed from Jan-March. Probably best to visit in Spring or summer.
central location lovely views of sea and mountains, i went mountain biking and walking for which it was ideally suited for access to lots of great locationd for these pursuits, and was only 15 minutes from various beaches
the owner was helpful and spoke english which was a bonus accomodation was spacious and very clean
wonderful views of sunsets in the evening
would highly recommend!
i will be going back
The friendly English owner welcomed us in El Paso and guided us to the bugalows. We stayed in a detached bungalow with a sunny beautiful view on the Ocean and the valley with Los Llanos. The bungalow has spacious rooms and the kitchen is well provided with all you need to cook. As there are two sleeping rooms you can stay with 4 very well. We also enjoyed the swimming pool, in november the temperature of the water was 26 degrees.
The location is perfect, central in La Palma and very sunny. From this place we explored La Palma very well. In the neighbourhood there are a lot of restaurants.
So we recommend this this plce!
We had a lovely stay in La Palma, there was plenty to do if you want to, but is also very relaxing! The Los Guanches Bungalows are in a quiet location with beautiful views. It's location makes it easy to visit the local towns, beaches and attractions with a car. It is also a nice place to stay if you want a relaxing day due to the good sized pool and outdoor space with each bungalow.
The bungalows are nicely situated as you have privacy from the other guests in there bungalows. They are kept very clean and are fitted with all the amenities you could need, with a well equipped kitchen. The owner is very helpful and friendly which is a good bonus! We would definitely recommend the Los Gaunches Bungalows!
