Nice stay on a fascinating island ★★★★ 4 of 5
I was not disappointed with my stay at the La Perdoma. The cottage was well equipped, clean, bright and had a nice airy atmosphere. Lots of lovely bird calls all the time with excellent views of Puerto De La Cruz and the surrounding countryside, made you want to keep visiting the balcony.
The weather was kind to me. Most days at La Perdomo the day would sometimes start with misty low cloud but as the day progressed it would be burnt off by sun to leave sunny warm or hot afternoons.
If the cloud persisted, you were less than half hours drive away from the sunny coast, where the sun always seemed to shine.
The cottage was an excellent base for touring the island, which was my plan, as I was there to photograph as much of the endemic wildlife as possible.
The roads to and from the cottage are very steep and narrow, only to be expected staying in a mountainous location. Its wise to hire a higher category car with good torque. The WiFi was a bonus as it was not advertised, although the signal did seem to come and go.
Also it was nice to have a few English TV channels to watch and catch with the news back home.
Catherine and Kevin were very welcoming and always about if you had any questions or needed help.
I can definitely recommend the cottage as a good inexpensive base for touring the island, especially if you are bit on the adventurous side.
