“Quiet, relaxing and well maintained”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We had read from other reviews that the reception wasn`t always open, so when we arrived on Friday afternoon it was no surprise that the entrance to the complex and the reception were closed. We telephoned the number displayed beside the entrance and after about fifteen minutes someone arrived and let us in, gave us the safe key, wifi password and TV remote. Hana formally checked us in when she was in the reception on Sunday morning.

We stayed in apartment 23 with a balcony and pool / sea view – everything as expected, except that it has a large (rather hard) double bed and not twin beds.The apartment and the facilities, including the gardens, pool and reception area are all clean and well maintained. All the staff are friendly and helpful.

We eat several times in the small restaurant run by Antonio and his wife Adele. Good honest food, well prepared at very reasonable prices. It is only a short walk to the large Spar supermarket which is open every day from 09:00to 22:00.

In almost all self-catering apartments of this type, the kitchen utensils are very basic and El Guarapo is no exception. We had with us scissors, a small SHARP kitchen knife and a spatula!

El Guarapo is a small, friendly, quiet, relaxing and well maintained complex, in a residential area, very close to the town centre. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Superior One-Bedroom Apartment with Pool View and balcony. Top floor if possible, so avoid hearing p...

I was very surprised before leaving for yet another holiday in el gurappo appts.to read an unfavourable report of our favourite place.
Don't know what some people expect from a quiet inexpensive well maintained resort.However We returned on the 23rd October after 3 weeks of good food and wine courtesy of Antonio (1) and his delightful wife Adele.Well maintained pool and garden coutesy of Antonio (2) and his team of cleaners and gardeners.
As usual met some old friends who like us return year after year and met some new ones.It is surprising how many people keep in touch after meeting in el gurappo.
As I've said before if you want a hectic action packed holiday el gurappo is not for you.However if you want good food ,good wine,and good companyin a tranquil pleasant atmosphere would have to go a long way to beat el gurappo.

Just got back from El Guarapo Oct 2013. We spent 10 nights in the complex and to be honest I cannot criticise anything. We arrived at about half nine in the evening and were greeted by Antonio the restaurant owner attached to the complex. The apartments were very clean and spacious. The cleaner called every two days or so. The pool area was relaxed (no music) very clean and quiet. The apartments were very close to local bars, shops and restaurants about five mins. The attached restaurant “Antonio’s” served very good meals at very reasonable prices and to be frank I don’t know how he does it the quality was brilliant and he works so hard. I spoke to several people who go back year on year and one couple said how they had been visiting the apartments for 30 years. I will most certainly be visiting again and would recommend it to everyone.

The apartment was clean and comfortable enough equipment for basic self catering which suited us as we only ate breakfast in the apartment. No air conditioning though. It was in need of an update but the grounds were very well maintained and very clean and tidy. The pool was cold but clean and large enough for the apartments. We had a ground floor apartment which didn't really have a view, the higher floor apartments appeared to have nicer views. As stated in other reviews there is a beach at the bottom of the road but we used the promenade for a lovely walk to the nicer beaches or the walkway at the side of the apartments into the town and shops and bars and beaches. We found some lovely restaurants and can recommend La Hacienda and El Maestro and the bars in the square are nice to sit in of an evening we used La Magma quite a bit. We used the free wi fi in the bars we used in the evening. There are markets twice a week in the evening in the square. We food the price of the food and drink to be reasonable and had a lovely time in the resort.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms had a better view

having stayed at el guarapo, for the past 4 years ,have been a bit disappointed this time ,just got home last week ,
there are too many cats about , as people keep feeding them , ,and they tend to have a lot of flys about.
also we have allways liked these apartments , for the quietness , and allways older people , ,
but they are starting to have children there now, and they can be very loud, they were running round the dinning room , while we were trying to eat, and also could not relax at pool , as they were too loud shouting and screaming all the time.
its a shame as the apartments are nice , but I noticed there was a lot of people saying they would not come back again , if there were going to be children there

Just back from a week at El Guarapo. Apartments where modern and bright. They where in a great location and central to all shops, bars and restaurants. Now for the negative, we had ants in the bedroom and spent all night killing them There is no air conditioning and as we where on the ground floor we could not leave a window open of a night, also there where no shutters or bars on the windows.This is needed as an apartment above us got broken into. It is very uncomfortable to sleep at night, Also I wanted to connect to wifi and was informed there would be a charge for the password,, All the bars and restaurants quite happily give you the password for free. Also there was no courtesy shower room to get changed before flight home and if you have an evening flight this is not good,

Just returned from El Guarapo apartments on Friday 20 September. We would certainly recommend these apartments; they are clean, comfortable and a stone's throw away from the centre of Costa Teguise. We had an upstairs apartment, number 41, which was at the other end of the complex from the pool and the on-site restaurant, and was quiet and peaceful. The staff are very helpful and friendly, especially the gardener/maintenance man and Antonio, the restaurant/bar owner, who is a real gentleman. His food is fantastic, plentiful and very, very reasonably priced - some of the meals we ate there would have cost three times as much in the restaurants in the resort centre. When we were leaving for the airport he even phoned a taxi for us which was waiting at the complex by the time we got outside! We were also adopted by three cats, which we didn't mind so much as we love cats.

As for Costa Teguise itself, it is a nice relaxing resort that is couples and family orientated. The Pueblo Marinero, facing the main Spar and the Taxi rank, is where we spent most of our time socialising. There is often live entertainment but it can be quite difficult to get a seat early on in the evening. There are some really nice restaurants there, including 'El Patio' and 'La Hacienda', and the pub we visited most often was 'Ireland's Eye', which did a tasty pint of Tropical.

Overall, we were delighted with our stay at El Guarapo and we will be back. ¡Volveremos pronto!

Room Tip: Have a meal at Antonio's pool restaurant - you won't be disappointed!
