If you want a busy nightlife with entertainment then this is not the place for you but if you are after a really peaceful relaxing holiday then Casa Leon is ideal. It is a beautiful small hotel up in the mountains (approx 15mins drive from Maspalomas) with just 25 rooms, the front of house Staff all have fluent English, German and Spanish (and probably French as well) and are most welcoming and friendly.
There is a cinema , gym,games room, also tennis courts if you want to to be more energetic. Also sun beds tucked away in the grounds if you want to be more secluded.
We went half board, which is essential if you are not going to hire a car as there isn’t any where else in walking distance. The restaurant served a four course set menu, which differed every day showcasing Canarian dishes and local produce. The menu was put up in the morning and if something was not to your liking the chef could always do you something different although the main course usually gave a choice of fish or meat.
The reason I only rated it very good and not excellent was because there were a few small niggles regarding room refreshes for example we had to request more shampoo and shower and mini bar replacements but this was dealt with promptly. Would we go back? - yes! Would we recommend it as a wonderfully relaxing holiday? - definitely!

We both had a really relaxing week here. The staff make this place special - they really go that extra mile to make you feel welcome, and to make sure you have everything you need. We did have a couple of issues during our stay, but a quiet word with management and everything was sorted with no fuss. The food is definitely well above average, with a set menu for dinner - often 5course -and allowance made for people with food preferences. Breakfast was a splendid spread - best coffee I’ve had in any hotel. Egg chef is present, cereal, bread, various meats, salmon etc etc. Go half board - you won’t need any lunch! Hotel is run by the daughter of the German owner, many guests are German but excellent English is spoken by the staff. As others have noted, there are many free activities in and out of the pool! Can definitely recommend the Casa Leon!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of March and had such a lovely relaxing break. The hotel only has 25 rooms so not many guests, and even though the hotel was full it never felt crowded and we were able to do all the activities we wanted to do. It is a German run hotel, but they catered so well to our needs and all staff spoke excellent English.
This is the perfect hotel if you want to get away from it all and relax, it was so peaceful and the staff work so hard to ensure all guests are relaxed and have everything they need. The free yoga in the mornings was great, the instructor was so professional and was a perfect start to the day. We were half-board and the breakfast and dinner was amazing, we both agreed the best food we've had at a hotel, all the ingredients were so fresh and you can make your own smoothies and juices at breakfast! There was also a free shuttle bus to Maspalomas which was nice to explore as there's not much immediately around the hotel. The bus runs 3 times a day there and back.
I would highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing break, the staff were so friendly and all parts of the hotel were done to such a high standard which added to the luxurious feel. I would love to come back one day!

We arrived for a five day break, should have come for a longer period of time. Staff very friendly and speak excellent English. The hotel is owned by a German woman but is family run. It caters for the German market, however they hope to expand into the U.K. market.
Excellent food and wine,. The staff couldn't do enough for us.

Unusual hotel lobby which is open to the sky. Apparently it doesn't rain her very often

Room Tip: Front facing rooms offer spectacular views

We are happy to welcome guests from every country and keep trying our best to fulfill their wishes. It seems that we had success in making your stay an “excellent short break”, that is wonderful to know. We also expanded our range of wines this year, so you might want to plan a future stay with us, this time maybe a bit longer? : )

We hope to see you again!
