My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Arturo.
The patios and the pool were for our personal use and we loved having breakfast by the pool enjoying the beautiful view along the west coast including Mt Teide. The sunsets were magnificent, it must be one of the best views on the island.
The apartment was spotless everything worked and was in excellent condition. The gardens were full of cactii, flowering plants and shrubs and everything was keep in meticulous order.
We found a fantastic walk at the bottom of the cliffs past a ruined village and shrine. Its not for the burger and chips crowd, it is a quiet residential area well away from the big resorts. Even so a few minutes drive will bring you to some really good restaurants and Puerto de la Cruz.
We really do rate this apartment/villa as excellent.
