More like a well-equipped guest house than a full-blown hotel, this is still a very, very pleasant place to stay. It is in beautiful surroundings, on the outskirts of Hermigua. The centre of Hermigua is about fifteen minutes walk away, down some steep roadways. There's a great spread at breakfast; and a very sensible ‘honesty bar’ arrangement for drinks in...

We enjoyed a peaceful and comfortable stay at this charming little hotel. The rooms are airy and pleasant and have nice views over the valley to the sea. There are no buildings to block the view. It was spotlessly clean. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and recommended several interesting sites for us to visit. The buffet breakfast was...

We truly loved our stay for 3 nights here. Very quiet, clean, nice and friendly. Beautiful breakfast and superb view. To wake up to birds song and a rooster telling us its morning is so good. Just book it

We enjoyed our night at the Ibo Alfaro where we had what was really a suite with a bedroom and a nice adjacent living room at a reasonable price. Nice views of the Hermigua valley, delicious breakfast - and above all extremely friendly and helpful service. There is wifi in the restaurant and lounge, but not in the rooms.

We only stayed here for one night but wished it could have been longer. Staff were very friendly and helpful, we were up graded from a budget twin to a standard double overlooking the valley. Rooms were not large but comfortable with good refurbished bathrooms and excellent shower. Breakfast was very good and healthy! This was a very enjoyable stay...

Small,family run hotel high on a hillside above the town of Hermigua. Lovely rooms with comfortable bed. Breakfast is good. Base for walkers from all European countries. Staff are knowledgeable on local walks and provide packed lunches and taxi rides. Other guests also friendly and collaborative. Recommended.

A friend and I stayed there for 4 nights and it was excellent. Isabel the owner is fantastic - very helpful and accommodating. The hotel is full of lovely artwork by a German artist. Beautifully renovated and great value for money at about £40 per night for a twin room.
