“A MAGIC HOLIDAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We arrived in April for two weeks. Tha apartment was excellent. Superb location close to beach. The weather was warm. The pool was clean and it made our holiday. We swam every day. We walked to Los Christianos most days which is about a 10 min walk. Lots of shops, bars and bistros.

We shall be back soon.

We arrived at this hotel at one am we where told where our room was we walked down a dark lane and eventually found what was supposed to be our room .the door to the room was broken and had a large gap at the bottom you could see into the room . On entering the smell of urine and damp overpowered you and the room was overrun with cockroaches even in the KETTLE , we where told there was nothing could be done until morning so locked the room up and sat outside on the balcony that only had one chair and a stool . We saw many new arrivals also complain and one group where given a bug spray as there room was so bad .we payed to move in the morning worst hotel I have ever seen stay away

just back from tenerife where we stayed for a week at Optimist Resort. Bus number 450 on line 30 outside airport will take you just at the back of the Optimist Resort. It will cost you about €2.20 one way. We got apartment 74c. Nice, clean, flat screen tv with international chanels and sunny balcony. Nothing to complain about. The resort is near all the nice 4-5* hotels, beaches and restaurants. Will definetely go again.

I stayed in these apartments as part of a package deal approx five years ago. They were awful run down and noisy. You can imagine my dismay when I discovered my friends had booked us into them via holiday lettings .co.uk. However I have never seen such a transformation. The apartment we hired was a two bed and had been totally refurbished by the new owner. The place was immaculate and was fully equipped. The block itself was always well placed near the beach and local amenities but has now benefited from a complete revamp. I can now really recommend a stay in these apartments.

Room Tip: Always pick the sunny side
