“Great Views, Fantastic Space”

We stayed here with two young children, a 3 year old and a 4 month old. There is lots of space available to spread out and play. The outdoor space is particularly good, with a fantastic outdoor kitchen and barbecue on the top floor. The apartment is situated up on the hill above the town. Views from both balconies across to Gomera are gorgeous. The lower balcony has full sunscreens, ideal if you want to stay out in the fresh air without burning to a crisp!

The apartment is well equipped, with a good range of reasonable quality kitchen equipment and crockery / glassware. Some of which is a bit well used, but that's a holiday let thing and should in no way put you off. The equipment also includes that massive rarity - sharp knives! Yulia also provides lots of towels for both domestic and beach use. Finally, wifi is included - we had struggles connecting the downstairs router, but the upstairs one worked just fine.

Beyond the apartment, having a parking space in the garage under the building removed the worries of parking a rental car on the street. The pool area is a bit stark - there is lots of Canarian style planting around the outsides but a fairly unforgiving concrete apron all around. But, there is plenty of space, with two pools for grown-ups and a 35cm toddler pool. Loungers are provided, but no parasols (as far as I could tell).

There isn't much in the immediate area of the flat in terms of leisure facilities or bars / restaurants, so you'll have to head down to the town for this. Whilst it's a short distance as the crow flies, the road you have to take is circuitous and very steep in places. The overall rise / fall between the apartment and the beach is significant. So this apartment may not be a good option for those with limited mobility, although saying that, there are plenty of taxis available in the town and they're cheap too - 3-4 Euros a time. There is a Lidl supermarket around the corner, about 10 mins walk, or a short drive.

Playa de la Arena itself is a relatively tranquil place, with a selection of family friendly bars and restaurants. There isn't much in the way of noisy nightlife or binge drinking, as far as we saw anyway. But, we were back in the apartment before 9 every night (yay, children), so this may not be authoritative. One thing to be careful of is that many of the restaurants seem to pre-reserve all of their outdoor tables. If you want to go somewhere specific, it might be worth trying to reserve a table in advance.

Service from Yulia was prompt and timely. All in all we had a great time staying in this apartment and are happy to recommend it.
