We stayed Half Board at the Guacimeta Apartments. The apartment (number 40) had everything we needed for our stay and was very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole of our stay. The breakfast consisted of bread, cold meats, cheese, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs along with yoghurt, dried fruit, cereal, fresh fruit and donuts. You could order fried eggs, sausage, bacon and toast from the kitchen if wanted. You could also pay extra for a 'full English'. There was a choice of 4 starters and 4 mains followed by a dessert for the evening meal. All the food was cooked fresh when ordered. The Saturday BBQ was delicious with ribs, chicken, pork, steak and Spanish chorizo. The Canarian potatoes were very tasty, as were the Canarian sauces which were provided at every evening meal with warm bread. I was a little disappointed that there was not more local dishes on the menu, as it was lasagne, burgers, chips etc a lot of the time. I know a lot of English tourists would like this, but we prefer to be a bit daring and try the local cuisine!
The pool area was being cleaned daily and we never saw any ants or cockroaches around anywhere. We felt that there were not enough sun loungers for the amount of guests, and it wasn't even high season. As we were going to breakfast around 8.30 a lot of people already had their towels on the loungers, but then didn't actually turn up to sit on them until late in the afternoon, sometimes even after a day trip out of resort.
On the day we left we had a late checkout which we were not charged extra for, which was helpful.
The fact that there is no air conditioning may prove to be uncomfortable during high season. As it was breezy overnight we just left the window open to get the air flowing.
The surrounding area was very quiet with very little nightlife and the bar on resort closed at 11pm.
