We stayed at the Wimpen El Marques for 2 weeks this August. Having not stayed in Los Gigantes before were suprised at the cost of Taxi or Airport Transfer (as a party of 4) @50 Euros.
The apartment itself was very nice, it was a one bedroom villa/apartment with twin beds and bathroom downstairs and sofa bed with pull out bed upstairs with additional toilet, balcony with great sea views and small private garden. Only having towels and linen changed 3 times in the 2 weeks was a bit disappointing but there was a washing machine if needed.
The pool area was nice but there was the usual sunbed reserved issue which wasn't tackled by any member of staff despite the policy being clear; again this didn't affect us directly.
Staff were friendly and helpful across the whole site.
Restaurant was a let down for evening meals, lunchtime weren't too bad and the entertainment was very poor and outdated, we found some much more lively pubs/hotels which were much better.
Overall impression was good and would consider returning.
