We stayed in one of the appartments of Las Norias in april 2014. It was a nice stay. The hosts are very nice, helpful and understanding. There also is a bread service in the morning if you like. They also have a washing service (for a cost).As service, they already set up a cot for our 1 year old daughter since we mentioned it in the booking that we are travelling with a baby.
Las Norias isn't located in or very near to the place Tazacorte (which can be a bit confusing), its located in Las Norias, a place more to the south and halfway between Tazacorte and Puerto Naos.
If you decide to stay in Las Norias, you need a car. Although two restaurants are very near, there isn't much to do in Las Norias itself. The place has a swimming pool and a nice sun deck (not sure if thats a feature just for our appartement, you might want to check before booking), but there aren't much activities in walking range.
Las Norias is however, nicely located if you want to go places. Although the way to the north took us quite a while (but then again, it does for everyone unless you decide to stay there), the way to the volcanoes in the south and to la Cumbrecita en El Pinar was about 40 minutes, taking in account very windy roads which i drove on very slowly.
The reason it doesn't get a 5 star is the fact that the house rules imply that you need to buy your own toilet paper if you use more than one roll during your stay, , you need to take your own trash to a trash bin somewhere in the area, and the toilet bin (you can't flush paper,its an island) is changed for you, but not daily but every two days. The pillows in the bedroom are wierd and not really comfortable. The room also can get pretty hot and there is no airconditioning or a fan. In april we could solve this by opening the door to the balcony, not sure if thats enough in hotter months.
Those are some pointers that can use some improvement.
All in all its a good place to stay. We stayed there with my 1 year old daughter and she could crawl and play in the place and had a good time. The improvements mentioned above are minor details that didn't affect our stay. Furthermore, if you take in account the price, value for money its a steal.
