Myself and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel for 10 days in July! We booked it last minute and got an amazing deal! When we arrived at the hotel the receptionist was worried as he said he only had one room left and he wasn't sure if we would be happy with it as it was slightly below the pool,... More

Just come back from a week here, great apartments for what we paid, spotless, cleaned everyday, clean towels everyday. Lovely quiet location with awesome views of Mount Tiede, two pools one indoors, free wifi. Would definitely recommend.

Myself and my friend arrived at Carabela Apartments to be given a choice of another hotel (Pez Azul) as the only room they had left was at the end on the ground floor, but we chose to stay at Carabela and were expecting our room to not be that great. Anyway, when we got to the room, it was immaculate... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in February. We had low expectations as we had paid a very small amount for our stay. When we arrived, check in was fast and the receptionist was polite. We had room 104, it had a small kitchen, dining table, beds, sunn terrace and bathroom. It was fine just for a... More

Cheap, cheerful and in a great location. Great place to dump your stuff and go and explore Puerto de la Cruz. A bit grubby but we weren't that bothered by that, just buy some cleaning wipes. The beds are REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE! We didn't sleep properly for the 11 nights we were there. We had breakfast but it was not good,... More

I stayed here with friends for a week although the rooms are basic they were very clean and were cleaned everyday. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the view from the balcony was amazing! We went self catering and there were only 2 rings to cook with and no kettle which I think is the only downfall. The pool... More

At first I've to mention that not all rooms were that terrible like our first room but even the rooms which were in a better shape, had a few big disadvantages. Even if you are lucky and get a better (but still very basic) room, the management of this hotel is very questionable because they offer such nasty rooms like... More
