Reasons to choose this hotel-
If ur single guys there is a brothel/stripclub next door.
Top restaurant opposite called Gaucho.
Very secure.
Cleaners came all but daily.
Cheap.

Reasons to not choose this hotel-
Beds so uncomfortable we slept on plastic sun loungers.
We slept outside on the sun beds 5 of the 7 nights we stayed due to the insulation in the room, no fan or a/c.
There was an awful family living on the ground floor who had a constant (and i mean non stop) crying and moaning toddler due to their terrible parenting.
Although the cleaner was regular there were far too many cocroaches around- need more pesticides.
Pool wasn't clean- in fact green!!


Overall the stay gave us what we paid for, friendly reception, safe and tidy place for our kit and what you'd expect for budget. If you do decide to stay then request a room not on the ground floor as the heat from the building sits there and gets no air and is physically unbearable to sleep in, plus you may get some peace away from the screaming arguements away from the previously mentioned family. Go if your looking for budget- we went to find jobs so was okay for us.. But if you want comfort and peace, avoid!

I stayed at These apartments October 2011. First of all for anyone arriving when reception is shut getting in can be confusing. The room key is left in the door of the allocated apartment, however you cant get in the complex without your key, the person on the end of the emergency number line doesnt understand, and whose to say everyone has a mobile to call the number. Your room number is displayed on a notice at receptions glass door, however with no light seeing is not always believeing. The keys to open the side door at the side of reception are somewhat difficult to master. it helps to pull the key out of the lock about 3mm then turning it. Try doing that after a drink. The Staff are very helpful and friendly, i needed a doctor and they couldnt have done any more. The rooms are very clean and typical apartment standard, There is the luxury of a microwave and coffee machine. The rooms are thoroughly cleaned and re toweled every day, i have never seen this before full cleaning everyday. The pool area is adequate however there is no bar or any other extras. Sunbeds are plentiful. Overall the Apartments exceeded my expectation and the staff are excellent. However!!!!! This is no fault of the apartment at all , but, I had very little sleep due to renovation work at the opposite hotels, and also the disco nightclubs that were adjacent, with bass booming till 6am every single morning. There was no relaxation to be had whatsoever. The apartments are nicely facillitated by bars shops and restaurants, walk to yumbo is 12 minutes, past the usual ticket towts and where you frommmas, prostitutes and pimps.

If you dont mind noise constantly and are non stop clubbing then stay here, but if you require any peace and quiet find somewhere different.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same standard the pool level rooms are secure and handy for the pool area. There i...

Me and three friends booked a cheap and cheerful holiday to gran canaria. After reading reviews we were dreading our trip to strelitzias, but must say we were over all very happy.

When we pulled up on our transfer coach we were shocked the area the hotel is in is a dated and a little shabby, but is the heart of everything young and lively!! just right for us.
Be aware there is a xxx club next door and it can be a little daunting when you come in at night and the ladies ask you if you require a special dance or something else of an adult nature.

We were very lucky having 2 rooms on the ground floor opening out to the pool. Rooms are dated and a little basic but are cleaned well with clean towels every other day. i must say i have never stayed in a self catering appartment with as many pots pans and cutlery, every thing you need including coffee machine, toaster and microwave to cook if that's what you want to do.

Pool and communal areas kept well clean and staff very friendly and helpful- a un-working toaster was changed within 10 mins along with a non working lightbuilb.

The biggist issue is the reception not being manned 24 hours a day, if you arrive in the middle of the night you have to phone a security company to let you in and your sort of left to fend for yourself. Also the main gate and security door you have to use are very very temperamental my friend nearly had to jump off a second floor balcony to get in in the middle of the night.

overall price was very low for a good basic accomodation.

Just back yesterday 20th Sept, from a week at the Strelitzia Apartments, and have to say it was Excellent value for money, the apartment was very clean, towel changes each day, 2 x bed changes during the week i was there, and daily cleaning by the maid too, a problem with the bathroom was fixed within minutes and the owners / caretakers were very helpful, would go back again tomorrow!!, the pool was hardly used so plenty of sunbeds to use and was spotlessly clean, Thankyou to "Yourholidays" too.

Booked the apartment through Teletext holidays, after booking it we read reviews about the accomadation which were rather off putting. We weren't expecring much when we arrived but I have to say its one of the cleanest apartment blocks I have stayed in over the last ten years of package holidays, the inside and out was spotless our room was cleaned everyday excluding Sunday (maids day off) which was brushed mobed and left clean towels each day. Also everyday when we passed through the reception the male receptionist askes us every morninf if we had a peaceful night sleep as we did. I would not hesitate to recomend this accomodation to anyone, I'd go back in a minute I really don't know why its a 1 star !!

Booked this apartment through booking.com from Boxing Day 2009 for a week.
As said in previous reviews their reception was locked with a sign on the door saying to call at the hotel accross the road to check in, which we did without problem.
The apartment itself was very spacious, however the furnishings were a bit dated and looked like they had been tarted up with a lick of white paint at some point.
The beds were uncomfortable and the pillowsand linen not great either.
No kettle or hairdryer provided so take your own if you require these, oh - and although there was a television this was not tuned in and had no remote to do so either.
The maids were very pleasant indeed and the apartments were kept very clean as well as the communal and pool areas.
The location was convenient for the beach and the Metro, Casbah and Irish centres are literally on your doorstep. This is great if you want to party to the early hours but not so great if you go to bed before as the music pumping and people coming and going create a great deal of noise which can be heard clearly from these apartments. If your looking for a bit of peace and quiet in the evenings, i would recommend not going here.
There were no problems with other guests being rowdy etc, however the walls are a bit thin and you can hear pretty much all thats going on from the neighbouring apartments beside/above/below you.
All in all i probably would not return to Strelitzias, however at the price we paid around £260 for the week at that time of year i feel it would be cheeky to complain!

We expected the worst but got a surprise! The place is just renovated. Everything had been painted and looks clean and fresh. All balconies are on the south, so you can enjoy the sun the whole day on a spacious balcony or terrace (lowest floor). There's no restaurant or entertaiment, but nightlife is just around the corner. The place is very clean, the kitchen well equipped en the staff friendly and helpful. There wasn't any noise when we were there, but maybe that's different in summertime.
