“Not what was expected but worked out ok”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We had looked on trip advisor and read that we had Wifi and TV. When we arrived we found out there wasn't either. This was a surprise and disappointment. We actually got by without the trappings of technology!

The apartments were clean. The hot water was great once you got used to the water heater. It is small and you had to wait about 15 minutes between showers or baths as it had to refill, no biggy!

There are only 2 rings to cook on. There is no toaster or kettle, not even to hire. We did ask about hiring a fan (it was very hot even at night) and was told we could but it would take a few days as they needed to order them. You can keep your window open but we were worried about creepy crawlies!

The pool and our little terrace area was was great with plenty of sun loungers.

The reception staff were really helpful and the maids were great too.

it is very close to the beach and lots of restaurants.

We enjoyed our stay, although we probably wouldn't have chosen it if we knew all the details! It was a good cheap break.

Overall it was a good holiday and we enjoyed out stay there!

We booked our holiday via Teletext...We were expecting a last minute cheap and cheerful 2 week holiday. This was not the case.

On arrival: the outside and surronding area of the appartment was in poor condition and not well maintained in the slightest. Also not in Playa Del Ingles as stated in the advertisement! We were met by a man at the reception desk, who did not give us an introduction to the complex. Which does not appear suitable for those with difficulty with stairs. Arrived to our appartment which I can only describe as a major let down!! Our room was open to the pool side therefore minimal privacy, a view to a shabby, old, dirty pool and a road, but the advert did deliver on a sea view.

The "shop" at the reception desk was very poorly stocked the fridge was broken with a big puddle on the floor, there was mould on the back of the fridge and also a dead cockroach that remained in the fridge for the duration of our stay....only the brave would buy from this "shop".

The Room: small living area, broken sofa, no tv, no air conditioning, bathroom was DISGUSTING the bath didnt seem to have any enamel left on th bottom, the shower curtain was dirty, the wood around the door rotting, and this appeared to be one of the meeting points for the NUMEROUS COCKROACHES that were also resident in the apartment. They also appeared a few occasions in the "kitchenett" which was also in apauling condition, 2 hobs, mould growing around the whole of the work top, mould around the taps and a good hiding place for the roaches! The bedroom was tiny with only a small window! I did not sleep at all during our stay.
We where so disappointed with this place that after 5 days of not sleeping, getting out of the shower dirty than when we got in, dodging the cockroaches and stray cats we decided that enough was enough and moved to another hotel.

This most definately was not a cheap or cheerful holiday and would have spoiled our holiday if we had not changed location!!

Stayed here for a week. On the edge of the resort which suited us as we have young children and it was away from the noise. Next to the main road, but we heard no road noise, even by the pool. Site itself had many steps, beware of this, however did mean excellent views of the sea.
Appartment was good, although extra bed in lounge were a bit worn. Good pool, cleaned daily.
We stayed all inclusive which included drinks and three meals a day. Food was of an excellent standard and staff were really helpful and friendly.
Felt was good vaule for what we paid, however site would benefit from some tender loving care as it looked tired in places.

Before I went on holiday, I read reviews and was concerned at comments made. My concerns were unfounded though and I Left after my 2 week holiday with pleasant memories of these apartments.
They were very clean, bed sheets and towels changed regularly. Room was bright, spacious and the view from the balcony was breath taking.
It was a 20 min walk to Playa del ingles however 5 min in a taxi at a cost of 3.50 euros. There is a road running along side the aprts with taxis every min or so.
San augustin beach is 300m over the footbridge which crosses the road....a quiet, clean, stunning beach with water sports available or areas to relax in the peace and quiet.
The aparts were not over run with cats....it did have 1 or 2 who lived there. They were clean, well kept and friendly cats who would take attention if offered and disappear if it wasnt. The cats were not an issue.
I would certainly go back to these aparts, ideal for familys or couples who want to relax in a clean and friendly setting with beautiful views and friendly staff.
Superb, you get what you pay for and more.
Very pleasent!!!!!

Stayed here in Mar 11, for 3 people, it cost us £569 including flights, airport parking at Stansted, and transfers. A very cheap holiday so we knew we would be getting basic accommodation. It did say it was in Playa Del Ingles, it was actually on the outskirts towards San Augustin. It was a good 25 mins to walk it along the seafront. The accm was basic, cleaned everyday, I saw 2 cleaners to do all the apartments really, sheets were changed I think every 2/3days, towels I think were every 2 days. They were clean and I couldn't argue with that, although we had a visit from 6 friendly cock roach's throughout the week! Hot water didnt last too long. I certainly wouldn't recommend all inclusive although we didnt, we were sc. Def not worth that. Pool side was never cleaned, pool was clean enough. Staff friendly enough. Lots of cats which I didnt mind, probably should have fed them but I did! They were not bother really. Overall I probably wouldnt go there again, but it was a good stay.

Room Tip: Take your own towels!
