“Perfect Ecological Retreat”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We came in early January for a 10 day stay. This detached bungalow has everything you could ask for. The springtime flora on the property and generally on the island was stunning. We had good times using the outdoor kitchen cooking local produce. We hired a car, which may not have been essential if we had looked carefully at the bus timetables. Our trip to the Caldera was one of the highlights of our days out. Carlos is an excellent host and always available. The local bar has a culture of dominoes and card games that was perfect for us. There is a local shop, run by Germans, that sells whole food, and more importantly for me has a good range of gluten free products. They also have a reasonable vegetarian range. The local corner shop had excellent local cheeses.An amazing island.

“nice well equipped house with a great garden”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

we had a really nice time staying at El Tendal. It's a charming well equipped converted old farm building, big enough for two, with everything you need, and the garden is indeed pretty big, with many wonderful plants, and a separate area where you could even cook outside. There's walking sticks and mountain bikes you can use, satellite TV gets a lot of international channels, mainly German, internet is only available via a cable, no Wifi. We didn't have a car but it was no big problem, it's a short walk down the hill from a bus station where buses go fairly frequently to Los Llanos where you can connect for Santa Cruz and not so frequently to the more remote north. Also a Spar supermarket that is open 8 to 8, a whole food shop, a nice restaurant, and some bars. There are quite a few walking trails around Puntagorda, some of which you can get to from just outside the house, I recommend the walk to Las Tricias and the famous caves, and the El Fayal woodland where they have the outdoor market at weekends is also worth visiting too and not far. We didn't make it all the way down to the puerto but that is a good walk too. It might be a bit difficult to get to the Caldera without a car from Puntagorda, but it is a lovely area, and I would recommend staying at El Tendal. The owner was very friendly, he only speaks Spanish and very little English but it all worked out fine!
