“Excellent Location.”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

I wanted a quick inexpensive getaway to some sunshine and found the Guinea apartments online. I would not normally go self catering but these apartments came in 300 pounds cheaper than the cheapest half board alternative so I budgeted 300 for food and drinks during my seven night stay, I actually come home with money. The location of this property is ideal with grocery store only a 3 minute walk away. Apartment is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, microwave, cooker, fridge freezer, toaster coffee maker (just pour through water if you want to make tea). There is a safe and TV with hire charge but we didn't use these. You are a five minute walk from the beach and you can walk along the beach to the sand dunes and round to maspalomas light house if you wish. There are many many bars and restaurants with a five minute walk and all nightlife is close by, if you are heading towards the Yumbo this is about a fifteen minute walk away. Apartment is very clean and the maid will come in daily and even did the washing up! The block is looking a little dated and the furniture could do with updating but that said my stay was very comfortable and I didn't see a single cockroach which was very surprising considering I was on the ground floor, I have stayed at other 5 star properties on this island and seen many cockroaches. There is a swimming pool (not heated) and sun loungers and the pool area gets the sun all day. There is not a 24 hour reception but this really didn't bother us we just went at the advertised time to change some English money, the exchange rate was better than those offered at the airport. Hector the receptionist was very friendly and a mind of information. My only moan would be the limited hot water that allowed only a five minute shower but ounce I was aware of this we made do and this really was not a major problem. So would I stay here again? for the price I paid you bet I will. Some other reviewers have not been so kind and my advice to them is if you want to pay for five star then don't come here, if you want an excellent location with excellent bars pubs and eateries then this is the place for you, remember you get what you pay for and the Guinea apartments are real value for money.

Room Tip: I stayed on the ground floor which was very quiet and there was no road noise. For the convenience o...

1st time at guinea, 4th jan-11th, arrived late at night, buzzer intrercom by the gate told us we were in room 701and how to get there,lift to top floor,key was in the door, one bedroom apartment,good size balconey,rooms are clean and basic,microwave,two ring cooker,toaster,pots,pans etc, i would recomend to take a kettle,£5.00 asda special,very light, made life easier when making home brought tea and coffe, cheaper than in the shops,when the sun rose that 1st morning the views were stunning,just fantastic overlooking the pool but with an180 degree sea view,do be careful if you do get this room as there are nudists on the roof of the hotel complex next door, its a 3 mins walk to the beach, 3 mins to kasba centre, the rooms are basic but very clean,sheets, changed every other day, towels every day, the pool and surround is cleaned and tested every day, hector, the gentleman on reception is very kind and very helpful nothing was too much trouble, even took us to the bus stop when we wanted to go to las palmas and told us it was the no 30 bus and only cost 6 euros each and took 30 mins to get there,
i would recomend the top floor as the views are stunning, there are two lifts so no up and down stairs , the views, the location, hector on reception you would be very hard pressed to get better with the price you pay for this apartment, the hotel next door to this apartment pay £120 a night, the apartments are always full so good luck when booking

Room Tip: top two floors for the stunning sea views

stayed here Oct31-Nov7, picked this hotel for price and location, which were both excellent.
we were in a 1 bed studio on 3rd floor, room was decent sized, small balcony with enough room for the 2 of us and table, chairs. bathroom was tidy enough, small bath, reasonable shower, w.c and bidet, and basin, only minor moan was that the hot water was fed through a water heater the size of a microwave so filling a bath or taking alternate showers resulted in water running out.
Kitchen had the usual 2 ring electric cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, seemed to have all the basic cooking stuff but we ate out every night so didn't use it much. no kettle, I assume you have to rent one but save your money and boil water on the hob. T.V with no controller, I assume you have to rent this as well but why would you come here and sit inside watching crap when theres so much to do here? cleaned daily except sun. no complaints about anything, You get what you pay for! and we did , a decent enough room with no frills, great location for beach, Kasbah, Yumbo, would stay here again

Room Tip: turn right out of hotel and use 76 steps to beach or turn left then right and there is a lift. top...

We stayed here in June 2013 for one week, as we have been to Playa Del Ingles a lot we knew that the location was spot on. Close to the beach and the Kasba centre where most of the night life is. We paid for a studio apartment but when we checked in none were available so we were given a one bedroom apartment at no extra cost. The man on reception was lovely as was the man in the snack restaurant. The rooms are cleaned frequently with fresh towels and bedding and the pool area was spotless and got the sun all day. There is no entertainment at these apartments so bear that in mind but they are a great base with good self catering facilities.

Room Tip: pool facing is best....

Stayed her in June 2013, in a group of 5 girls - this hotel was perfect for us! The apartment had two bedrooms with two beds in each, which meant one person had to sleep on the sofa - fortunately, they didn't mind this and just moved all the cushions onto the floor. The apartment was clean and a nice size and we had bed linen and towels change twice in the week we were there. The only downside was there not being enough towels for all of us - with being a four person room (although paying for five people) we were only allocated enough towels for four people, which meant sharing :o(. The hotel is in a perfect location for the bars and clubs, a quick five minute walk - unfortunately this included passing a corner that a lot of people seems to use as a toilet. The beach and a whole new set of pubs and restaurants is just another 5 minute walk in the opposite direction. all in all, perfect location. The pool area was clean, although it can be a struggle to get a sunbed so it may be best to reserve a few early in the morning (other guests would lay their towels the night before!). The hotel manager was brilliant for us, on our last day, we weren't due to leave until about 5pm and had checked out of our room at 12pm, meaning five hours of waiting. He opened up a reception room for us to leave our bag in and we spent the afternoon at the pool. He then opened up a shower room for us so we could freshen up before our flight.
The only downside to the hotel would be the rep - DO NOT book anything with him! He charges a fortune for pub crawls that you can join in for free! Ask him about them when he greets you but don't be fooled into handing over any cash!

Room Tip: Rooms above the thrid floor are best - some floors are either on pool level or below.

Arrived back from the Guinea apartments on the 2nd of July 2013, and by all means was the best holiday ever! Location was spot on, a 2 minute walk from the clubs and the same with the beach. Wouldn't be suitable for families, more of the younger crowd as there was after parties and late night pool festivities. We got told to keep the noise level down at some stage but ithe security man was fair. We hired out a safe to keep our personal belongings in, we paid a deposit of €12 for it. Made great friends also and the man Hector on reception was so helpful! Overall, a great place to and would 100% go back.

Room Tip: 2nd floor- leads a walkway out to the pool
