We stayed at this apartment for a week in mid February. We booked it on line through Hotels4U - and while they were very efficient and had the best price, their advertisement is somewhat misleading as to the location. The apartment is not 200 meters from the beach - not even close! However - if you go on the Balcon Del Mar's own website - they do not claim to be 200 meters from the beach. That was the only downfall of the property.
Having said that - the pros for Balcon are endless:
The apartments are clean and large - and cleaned every other day - sometimes every day. The kitchen is well equipped - no need to rent anything.
The pool was advertised on Hotels4U as heated - but it wasnt and in Feb - made it pretty chilly - but it was clean and large. There are lots of sunbeds as well, and a couple of pool tables. The bar has a happy hour every day as well. The property is only a few minutes walk from the commercial centre where where are lots of places to eat and drink. If you want to venture down the stairs to the bottom - there are over 700 steps! - the larger centre in Puerto Rico is there. We walked down almost every day - but cabbed it back up! The property is also very close to Amadores beach which is lovely. Again, lots of restaurants and bars along the beach. Just lovely.
As far as being in Puerto Rico - we just took the bus to Maspalomas or Playa del Ingles - it is very reasonable - about 1.80 euros to Maspalomas, and a very interesting bus ride. We preferred Puerto Rico as it was a little quieter than Playa del Ingles or Maspalomas.
Dunia at the front desk is just a doll - she is so friendly and helpful!
Overall - I would go back in a heartbeat. We loved the Balcon del Mar and would defintely recommend it and stay there again.

Nice quite resort with two swimming pools. All apartments have TWO bedrooms which are nicely furnished and all four beds were really comfortable. Free parking is a plus but we were not very impressed that we would have to pay extra if we wanted to watch the TV, in our view this should be included in the rental price. We will be returning next January and will be looking forward to the wonderful breakfasts cooked by the lovely Tracey who made us very welcome ( hope that you open at 9.00am next time).

Just come back from puerto rico for my 6th time and these apartments are the best i have stayed at. The complex and rooms are very modern and clean. Aparments are very big compared with other ones i have stayed at and have a huge balcony/terrace. It looks like this place has not been built long or has had a major refurb as everything looked so good.
The staff were great too, very friendly and willing to help. People that run the pool bar were also grear, had afew chats and laughs with them.
If your tempted by going to puerto rico then im sure u wont be disapointed with these apartments.

my husband and i went here for our anniversary, we were actually booked into the puerto azul but they had over booked so five days before we travelled we were told we were booked in to the balcon del mar, but what a lovely surprise it was when we got there. it is very clean, massive balconies, smallish pool but ok to cool off, big sunbathing area and plenty of loungers, close to bars etc, about a five minute walk to them. the only downside of this holiday was the strange man who walks around the opposite complex all the time, day and night, he stares over at you while you sunbath, if you are on your balcony look to the complex to your right and you will see him, it bothered me in the beginning but then i bought a pair of binoculars and stared back, it became funny in the end.
