“Absolutely excellent 1st experience of self catering!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Myself, friend and our two 3 years stayed here for 1 week at the end of march. We had an amazing time. I was previously a believer of AI holidays but San marcial has changed that!! The apartments are a basic 2* standard but cleaned 3/4 times in the week and towels changed regularly. The pool and grounds are some of the cleanest I've seen and the on site shop and bar/restaurant are very reasonable. Can't wait to go back in July with the hubby in toe!!

Second visit to these apartments and can say was better than the first . Staff so friendly and helpful both in reception and bar ( all staff same as last visit) welcomed us back so warmly a real pleasure to start our holiday with such a nice greeting. Bar food excellent and reasonably priced , HOT fresh rolls from the oven first thing every morning at 8.00 from the on site mini supermarket what a great way to start the day. whole site was clean and well maintained plenty of sunbeds available, ideal location close to beach and promenade very short transfer from airport.

Room Tip: Play area for small children on left side of reception when entering from road

Recently returned and can't recommend these average apartments enough. Clean and cheerful. Excellent reception staff. We had a problem with an extra night (9). A little misunderstanding left me red faced as they thought we only booked for 8 nights. All sorted without any hassle. The complex itself has been revamped since our last stay, October 2012. However, not too pleased with only one sheet change in 9. It appears they have a cleaning staff shortage. Miguel and Cissy remain on guard in their excellent poolside bar/restaurant serving fantastic food. The pool area always clean. A real friendly atmosphere for singles, couples and families of all ages. I hope the San Marcial remains so. Fantastic.

Room Tip: Rooms 101-116 not too good for the sun; 119-148 sun for most of the day; 150-164, best of all after...

This as the title says was our second visit to these apartments so lets start with the good things.
Short transfer approx 10mins
Clean apartments and faclities
Onsite restaurant very good food and reasonably priced also do carry out
Onsite supermarket a wee bit more expensive than the spar at the commercial centre but very convienent
Wi-fi 15 euros per week with decent coverage.
Staff very helpful .
We had a great break the only downside was the weather which was for the most part was sunny but a very cool wind there is something stange about sitting in the sun with a fleece on .We were in apartment 163 and found the situation of the apartment meant it was difficult to sit on our terrace due to the cool wind and not getting the full sun until mid afternoon.If you were visiting these apartments feel one of the poolside apartments are better you are more protected from the wind.

Room Tip: Rooms 101-110 are poolside

excellent reception staff,moved to balcony room with no problem,room very good,with all essential items for self catering.
onsite shop very reasonable prices.
plenty of sunbeds located around clean pool area.
whole site very clean and cared for.
Location - very close to beach and commercial centre with lots of places to eat and drink.
Beach area a little rocky,but better as you walk a little further along prom,
About 5k from peurto del Carmen,but this is a pleasant walk with places to eat and drink along the way or a taxi will cost about 5 euros.

A really nice few days spent at these apartments. Upon arrival had to pick up my keys from the bar because reception closes between 1.00 pm - 5.00 pm but hey no problem and quick check in then at 5.00 pm when reception opened.
Pleasantly surprised at price of safe hire and also free TV with a number of English language channels, If you can't do without wifi then expensive daily fee, but weekly fee pretty good and free if you use wifi in the bar/restaurant.
Bar/restaurant very reasonably priced and food really pretty good. Nice pool area with plenty of sun beds and a lot of sun umbrellas - pool very clean but very old. Onsite supermarket well stocked and reasonably priced
Apartments them self are a little worn but perfectly acceptable and clean. No air-con and this may be an issue in high summer? Cleaners seem to come every other day and bed linen changed twice a week but again not a problem. Staff very pleasant and helpful.
Location is good, only 5 minutes or so from beach and small commercial centre and both Arrecife and Puerto del Carmen are within walking distance, although would advise bus/taxi one way and walk back. Apartments are very near airport and yes you can hear and see the planes very clearly but you sort of almost forget about them (unless you are particularly offended by them in which case you should give these apartments a miss).
Weather was good but not great - in the sun and out of wind it was hot, but when cloudy and in the wind - brrr!
Would I return - most definitely.
