Stayed in Los Ficus, Playa Del Ingles December 2005 for a week. Booked holiday on a "create your own" package.
The Los Ficus is situated less than 5 minutes walk from beach front and Kasbah Shopping Centre. Its an ideally located place for the Yumbo Centre if you don't mind a 10 minute walk.
Get a sea view room. Stunning views of the seafront and hills.
Caters more for the Germans and isn't easily found in UK travel shops.
Rooms are basic but in good maintenance. Bedromms come with a lockable door and a safe that didn't seem to work. Or at least I couldn't get to grips with it.
Maids come 3 times per week.
Beds wont tolerate any night time frolics either. Very flimsy design.
Kitchenette is clean, modern and comes with a coffee maker. However, I missed not having a kettle. (Don't drink perco coffee much).
Bathrooms clean and smart. Beware of having long showers (5 mins or more) it comes from a small hot water storage unit in the kitchen. (Enough to do the dishes but not to take a shower). Once the hot water's gone, its an hour or so before the next occupant can take a hot shower. (This means you can forget having a bath...would take all night)
No bar, shop or meeting place. Single travellers probably best advised against it unless you want to meet elsewhere.
Don't forget your card swipe. The place is locked at about 10pm.
Very clean apartments. Pool was a bit cold and murky. (But then it was December !). Staff were excellent and really friendly to the lone British guy.
10% off food at Casa Luigi's across the road.
Overall, it was a good apartment but the small hot water storage unit let it down.
