“Ok - but wouldn't really recommend it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The apartments are ok and spacious, although a bit outdated and rather cool and sterile. The balconies get sun in the morning, but no sun in the afternoon. Breakfast was disappointing - poor coffee and a very small selection of food.

The location isn't great - about 15 minutes walk out of town (a steep walk!). There are a few very simple restaurants nearby (hamburger joints) and we discovered the authentic non-touristy "Bar Juana" with good tapas if you walk about 8 minutes up the road out of town - but otherwise it's quite a walk along unattractive main roads to get into town.

The only good thing that I can say about this place is to praise the friendly and helpful staff (although they didn't manage to get our television working)

I wasn't a great fan of Puerto de la Cruz and glad we only spent a couple of days there. I was expecting more of a lively Spanish town and was disappointed by the large numbers of cheap and tacky tourist shops and restaurants - wouldn't return to Puerto de la Cruz.

Nice Clean well run spacious apartments in a quiet pleasant area, unfortunately some of the rooms have balconies or terraces facing a tall white wall. We got one of those rooms and tried to change immeadiately but were basically fobbed off (albeit in a nice way). Reasonably comfy beds,plenty of storage space , 2 ring hob,basic kitchen utensils ,fridge,microwave but no electric kettle, but there is a kettle you can boil on the hob.Theres a small flat screen tv which costs 3euros a day but we didnt bother with it. Safety deposit box 2 euros a day.There were only a couple of bars near the apts so we walked into town most nights , about 15mins there about 20mins back ( stiff uphill climb). Pool and pool area were nice but pool freezing . Theres a few sunbeds with mattresses by the pool and some more sunbeds in a couple of small sunbathing areas on the roof.Would probably stop there again but wouldnt rush back and would have to be assured of a room with a view. Puerto de la cruz seems to cloud over quite regularly and a hire car is a big advantage if your seeking the sun, and theres plenty of parking spaces on the street.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top 2 floors if you like a view

Visited Los Dragos Apts. during the last week of Feb. 2012. On arriving around midday we were were told that there was a "technical problem" ( no explanation) and we would be placed in the Casablanca Hotel for 2 days till the problem was fixed. No offer of an alternative room was given. The Casablanca turned out to be very nice. Had to book taxi back to Los Dragos on the Monday and book in. Somewhat disappointed with the room given which was on the ground floor looking onto a blank wall 5 feet away and very dark. A locked gate separated us from the pool and we had no outside table/chairs. We had requested a room with a balcony if possible. The room was clean but considering it was booked as self catering very basic eg. no electric kettle,no kitchen scissors, one kitchen knife, no washing up liquid/cleaning sponge etc. ( which we bought anyway and left) and drinking glasses and cutlery which looked as if they'd been put through years of service. No hair drier ( not that big a deal ) and 5euros per day for use of the safe ( a bit OTT ). Shower was pretty rubbish and towels dire. Beds were not made up at all and no change of bed linen at all for the entire week. Cleaning seemd OK but dirt under beds which had obviously not been swepy up during the week. Staff seemed helpful/friendly. Location OK. If you just want a reasonably clean roof over your heas and don't intend to spend much time there then perfectly adequate, but otherwise....!

Room Tip: Better off the ground floor away from a dark, sunless wall area.

This was our second stay at these apartments, we chose them because of the proximity to family living in Puerto.They are in a residential area on a busy main road. there are a couple of bars within a few minutes walk but the main resort is a 15 minutwalk away
On arrival this time we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who quickly scanned our passports and processed my credit card BEFORE going on to tell us that due to a problem with the bathroom the room wasnt ready and we would have to spend the night in another hotel in the town centre. There was no negotiating another in the Dragos and although he wouldnt confirm it we believe this was due to everbooking. We were able to move in the next day after 12 o'clock!!
The room we had was quite basic but functional. a kettle would have been nice!! The second bedroom is very small. A hot water tank is in each apartment and this only provides enough water for one person to shower. we were also unable to attach the shower to the wall and even though a man came to fix it, we still had to hold the shower. There is not enough water to fill a bath. We found the beds comfortable and the sheets clean, the towels had seen better days.
Do not stay in these apartments if you like peace and quiet to sleep. the walls are thin and noise carries easily between rooms and noisy furniture moving, toilet flushing, the tv and loud voices from the apartment above kept us awake on several occasions.

Room Tip: Higher floor, less chance of noise from above.

Stayed here for a week in early July. Hotel staff are soooooo helpful and obliging. Pool a lovely temperature and rooms more than adequate.
I'd highly recommend it for families and couples. It's clean, quiet and central. On street parking is free and safe.
