We paid very little to stay at this hotel and are absolutely overjoyed by our visit. When we arrived we were surprised by the large rooms and the free bottle of sparkling white wine and Christmas card on the dining room table (we also had a bottle of red wine compliments of the hotel waiting for is on Christmas Eve when we returned from a day out). There's a decent balcony which would have had sun from early in the morning till late in the evening if it hadn't been so cloudy during our stay (it was warm despite the lack of sun, which was good). There's a king size bed in the bedroom (It is two single matresses pushed together, so beware you middle of the bed sleepers). There's a TV, where you pay 1 Euro for an hour of TV. It's got German MTV, BBC News, CNN and Spanish channels. The kitchen's a great size with a large fridge. The bathroom's big, clean and has got a large shower cubicle with plenty of hot water and high water pressure for those of you who like that :) The staff are incredibly kind and helpful. We had free wifi. However, the wifi stopped working after a short power outage and it didn't return for the last two days of our stay. Don't let this put you off! My father stayed at a 4 star apartment hotel just a few doors away from our hotel (Altair) and, yes it looks posher, but it doesn't have wifi, no TV, the rooms are tiny, their shower is prone to leaking and isn't in a practicle shower cubicle, their kitchen was small and had a tiny fridge and no microwave.
Tamanacos is just up the hill from the main shopping mall. It's only a few minutes walk down some stairs to get there, but I didn't begrudge the distance, as the pubs and clubs get rather loud at night and the distance means it's nice and quiet up at Tamanacos. It's about a 10 minute walk from the beach.
We were travelling with our two year old daugher, so we enjoyed the quiet location. The apartment also has a sofa bed, so if you have a child that likes to take up an entire bed (like ours) at least there's the option of a second double bed :)
We plan to return to Tamanacos next year. I don't think we could get better value for money at any other hotel.
