I booked the trip through their website: http://www.holidayingrancanaria.co.uk/ and found them always friendly and quick to respond to queries. We went for a week and got back on Monday 26th November - we were a party of three males; a couple and a single.
On arrival the apartment was ready for us and was clean and spacious. The bedrooms were large and one had a large double bed (UK style). Unlike the average Canarian hotel bed these beds were very comfortable to sleep in.
The living room had plenty of comfortable seating and was decorated in a clean, modern 'IKEA-style fashion with a hifi and a large LCD TV with many channels - some of them available in either Spanish or English. The kitchen which led off was possibly better equipped than my own at home! A very welcome addition to the usual self-catering set up was a full size oven, this meant that on the days we fancied it we could cook a full meal at San Fernando supermarket prices (well worth the walk up there to get a massive choice of fresh food at 'locals' prices btw)
The bathroom was also equipped with a washing machine - we didn't use this but if you are considering a two week trip they are a godsend meaning you can talk considerably less clothes. The shower cubicle was a bit of tight for for me and rather claustrophobic the first time I tried it but my husband and mate who are a more normal size had less issues with it! On the plus side we had lovely warm showers and the availability of warm water seemed to be unlimited, though we didn't test it; knowing how precious water is on the island.
One downside was the accumulation of grime near the bottom of the shower and what I suspect is mould growing on the shower screen door. This should be attended to straight away as if nothing else it is unpleasant. The state of the shower door was surprising given the utter cleanliness of the rest of the apartment and the bathroom in particular.
The other thing to be aware of, and to their credit they make this clear on the website, is that the apartment is at the back of the building on the ground fioor and facing the car park for the apartments. The apartment has been extended fully out and onto what would be the balcony. This means you have no personal outdoor space but they have put in sliding windows which open the room up fully, providing an outside/inside feel which was nice.
The apartment blocks are private now and so there was some noise from local residents but it was never too bad. We accepted that this is their home 365 days of the year and we are only visitors.
All in all the price paid was well worth it but do think through the lack of a view; if that's going to be a problem then don't book and complain later! :)
