Barranco Apartments
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Centrally located with enougth basic facilities to keep you happy, althogh a microwave would not go amiss and I woild suggest you take your own electric kettle.As seasoned apartment users will know that boiling water on electric rings takes for ever and occupies one of them preventing other use. There is a t.v. downstairs in the Bungalows (remote available from Reception) with English Language news channels.
Strangely the Bungalows (mostly with balancies) are the apartments with an upstairs accessed by the spiral staircase.Some people moved to the studios when they became vacant.(In my day studios meant cheaper small rooms with a bed settees but these are the reverse with additional payments requiired to move). The narrow spiral stairs were the problem for some -if you are cautious of open stairs,have young toddlers or a physical disability (or even above average size) they will not be suiatable for you.They are the majority of the accommodation and have 2 comfortable single beds (can be pushed together) upstairs and bed settes down stairs.It worked well for us as a couple.
Yes, the pool is not large and it would not be recommended for those who indulge in such activites.No entertainment on site but other hotels etc. have!
One point of note the rout of the 111 bus has changed.We have expected to get off across the road but it now only uses that route late at night, and so a walk from the end of the by-pass was required although if suitably timed for your needs the 450 will traverse the old route.(As it was a Sunday evening the shop that sells the BonoBus tickets at the Airport was closed.)

had another great holiday in the barranco apt have spent the last 8 years here. although basic it has everything you need including an oven the spiral staircase can be tricky if youve had a few but beds down stairs are very comfy we came home on the 4th jan and were booked for xmass/newyear on the 5th staff very friendly and rooms cleaned every other day. location is excellent bars and resturants near byand a large iceland at the bottom of the road . it can get noisey with the anchor bar down stairs but it depends where youre room is .

Room Tip: rooms at pool are quieter but quite shaded

Spent the last week in November at the Barranco Apartments. Excellent location and the apartments are absolutely fine but fairly basic, I didn't pay a lot for my stay so good value for money. As others have said the spiral staircase means it is awkward to get your suitcase in and out of the bedroom but all in all I have no complaints.

I would recommend to anyone who is just looking for a base to sleep in and who intends to spend most of their time out and about in Playa de las Americas.

We stayed in these apartments are basic but good value for what we paid. Location is good, close enough to the beach, supermarkets and restaurants/bars.
The pool is very small, only 10 loungers so we went to the beach every day.
THE GOOD
good location, nice restaurants close by, clean apartments, nice hot water at all times of the day. Good value for money. Close enough to nightlife but not noisy.

THE BAD
Didn't like spirrall staircase in apartment, if your unfit or a bit tipsy dangerous!
Pool too small and not in the sun enough.

We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Come out building turn left and a minute away you will see the Chinese reataurant called Pekin Garde...

Well i booked this trip to playa de las americas for my birthday and i tell you if your younger than 30 dont go here i just turned 21 and went and it was full of old people. even by the pool they were surrounding it so we only went in once. anyways the bungalows had these spiral stairs which gave the apartment an edge but the furniture was a little dated. The cleaners needed to clean more it wasnt up to standard i wish they just left me the broom to be honest. The areas good but there was too many families and old couples. the only reason why i booked it was because i heard the area was good. We went to Playa Fanabe now if your looking for a fun time with your mates Fanabe is the one to go to the beach is excellent. The beaches around barranco were lets just say saggy. I dont think i need to elaborate. But main point of this review dont stay here if your young. Its mainly for older people and families. Oh i forgot to mention the ants. they look like head lice we had to buy ant spray we left that there so hopefully the cleaners make good use. The staff were very friendly though got to admit that.

my husband and i booked this with my sister and brother-in-law last minute no money holiday. we have been to las americas lot's of times so know this area well. the barranco is a very basic hotel but as it is cheap you get what you pay for. the rooms have enough to make your stay welcome, the spiral staircase's are very narrow and get some getting use too thier is no air con so rooms can get a bit hot and stuffy, they are clean but not spotless maid service is not great but do enough so no complaints. staff on the reception and secrurity are really nice and helpfull, the pool is kept clean not very big but very deep, the pool area is kept clean, the sunbed's are very uncomfortable not enough of them and also there is no sun parasole's. we had one night where we encountered alot of noise but people are on holiday and enjojing themselves so not a big issue. this hotel apartments are close to all amenities some good bars, pubs, restaurants and also close to the bus stops and taxi ranks so you can visit other areas and towns. the area the barranco is situated near the centre of playa las americas with the main strip and the beaches very close by

Me and my girlfriend stayed here from 5th September - 12th September. On arrival it looked quite pleasant. On entering the room, it was small and clean, but seeing as we didn't pay much, it was exactly what we expected. The main problems that we encountered was the fact our neighbours were unbelievably loud, coming home any time between 2am and 6am and banging on doors. One night one of them was blow drying their hair at mid night! Our apartment overlooked the pool and most nights people would jump in the pool after coming home at 2-3am and as we had no air con, we had to leave the windows open so we were kept awake most nights. The beds were very uncomfortable and the pillows were pointless, even when we asked for extras, they still wouldn't equate to one decent pillow. One day a cleaner broke a glass in our apartment and failed to clean it up properly and when we returned home (bare foot), we nearly cut our feet. On the plus side, it is cheap and is in a great location. I would recomment the Indian opposite the hotel. I would return the area but not here, would definitely think about spending more on a hotel next time
