“Do not go!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

This place looked great on the internet - do not be misled. The road is really noisy with traffic to and from the ferry terminal, lorries all day and evening. The apartment was dirty and very old. Only 2 old pans to use on the very old 2 burner electric hob. The fridge was cracked, the bathroom was dire, spider webs everywhere and see someone else's photos, I think they had the same room as I have the same photos - no better when we stayed there in March 14. A tree had grown completely obscuring any light from the window and it took 3 days for this to be cut back. Upstairs balconies all had flower pots but no flowers just prickly pear leaves placed on them, which were frankly dangerous, especially if we had taken the grandchildren with us. I had to buy bleach to clean the place before we could stay there. Didn't use the pool - it looked bad with broken and missing tiles around the edges. It was so bad we went to stay at the hotel up the road until he sorted the tree and the cleaning, which was still not good. The only good thing was the garden. Would have been cheaper and better to stay in the 4/5 star Hotel Roca for the whole week, unfortunately for us it was full for the remainder of our stay.

Room Tip: Stay at the Hotel Roca!

Third world accommodation,poorly run,dirty,run down, dangerous electrics,noisy, stray cats, howling dogs, mice in appartment. Clean your own room if staying a fortnight, no one else will. Change your own bed linen, no one else will. Amenities a joke, dirty pool, no security, we thought our room was disgusting number 9, but we had people coming to see ours in the hope of changing when we left.the current hosts rent the site from owner who lives nearby, no one has incentive to invest update.

The gardens and views create a great chill out spot. Being able to relax in your own space has really been thought about at El Angosto. The apartments and amenities are outdated but this really does add to the charm and they are quick to make you aware of this when you go on there website. This place is all about location away from the busy South.
Agaete is a relatively quiet town but Peurto de Las Nieves has a bit more going on and a bit more 'touristy' with plenty of places to eat. The botanical gardens in Agaete are definitely worth a visit!
We visited with our 22 month old and dispite the steps up to our apartment the place was well suited for a young child.
A bit of advice - if you arrive late at night, don't expect to find a reception area - look for your name and a number on a white board - this is your room number!
Great place, would definitely recommend and would visit again

We had a great stay there. No busy road at all! it's a bit dated but I think that's the charm of the appartments! Nice fresh bread every morning if you want, delivered at your door. Nice and relaxed, no stress or busy surroundings like the south! we really enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone for sure!

I've spent many happy days by the pool at El Angosto. Set in pretty gardens with a great view of Agaete and Puerto de Las Nieves it's much more local and authentic than the accommodation in the south of the island. For an alternative holiday in Gran Canaria El Angosto is a great spot and the perfect base for exploring the beautiful north and centre of Gran Canaria.

The vibe here is calm and the place is visually inspiring. We loved the beautiful, well-kept and diverse gardens. There's tables and chairs outside each apartment where we spent many hours talking, eating dinner, reading and enjoying the view of the mountains, ocean and the sunset.

Pots, pans and everything to make and eat dinner is available in the apartments, with the exception of an oven, but we managed to do without.

Overall, the furniture, kitchens and the place is worn, but it was charismatic and 'real'... Definitively good value for the money.

Room Tip: Both times we stayed here, we were in bottom apartments, which seemed best for us since we had free...

El Angosto is situated in the most beautiful corner of Gran Canaria, a few hundred meters from the beach and a "natural swimming pool" (man made pools in lava next to the ocean, refreshed twice daily by high tides), and at the other side Agaete, a typical Canarian village where you won't believe the prices in the bars for example. A green valley behind that and beautiful mountains and forests, easily accessible from there on a hiking path of two or three hours.

We walked from the apartments to Guyaedra as well, a hidden beach, more stones than sand, but amazingly beautiful and we were all alone enjoying the views of the ocean and Tenerife.

The apartments aren't new, but for us it was more romantic this way, more authentic anyway. And the swimming pool is cool, not too big, not too small, and we were the only ones using it mostly.

There's a real cool atmosphere where people are friendly but without compromising privacy.

There are typical Canarian restaurants in the harbour of Puerto de las Nieves (15 minutes walk away) which serve mostly fish dishes.

If you don't like big tourist resorts, and don't care if the places where you stay is all about design and luxurous, then we can really recommend El Angosto.
