Hotel Review

It’s not hard to work out why the tranquil eight-roomed Yaiza has a devoted tribe of returning guests. Owner José – who also runs nearby B&B Casa de Hilario – is enterprising, relaxed and incredibly affable: literally nothing is too much trouble. Highlights include the huge bathrooms, kitsch oil paintings and the finest restaurant on the island. Breakfast under the bougainvillea on ham with green olives, cold tortilla and excellent coffee.

Map & Location

What's Nearby

See What They Say

Located in one of the most beautiful places in the Canary Islands, rests the town of Yaiza. Near to this unique location by the National Park of Timanfaya, on the South coast of Lanzarote Island lie, the Papagayo beaches. Around 1825, a wealthy landowner decided to build his summer vacation home on this location facing the Fenauso Valley. The rustic yet elegant house is representative of the clear simplicity of the traditional architecture of Lanzarote. The years have passed and now in the 21st Century, three art-crazies and a team of great professionals and artisans have laboured to give birth to a dream that has come true: "LA CASONA DE YAIZA".
