Tabaiba Centre Apartments
Ranked #30 of 38 Hotels in Costa Teguise
Reviewed September 23, 2013

I have just returened from a week at these apartments. We booked a one bedroom but were given a very large two bed, the staff were very friendly and helpful and will go out of there way to ensure you are happy with everything. We had no working lightbulbs in the bedside lamps and within half an hour of asking they had been replaced. The towels and bedding were changed regularly and the place in general was kept very clean. There was some building work going on in the reception area but this did not affect us in any way. The nearest beach is about 10/15 mins away but is fairly rocky, we walked to the main beach along the promenade every day which took approx 30 mins but is a lovely walk (we also walked back at the end of the day) Got rid of the extra pounds from the daily English breakfast!!) try the Waterfront Bar for a good breakkie. In the evening time we tended to walk to the nearest bars and restraurants but if we went into town got a taxi there and back avg 3.00 - 3.50 euros There is plenty to do in the town either in the square where this usually entertainment or along the sea front. Would recommend this resort and apts if you like a walk (there is a free shuttle bus) and like to go out at night, thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back again.

Just returned from this hotel after a ten day stay with my hubby and will definitely return staff are so friendly and helpful and nothing is ever too much for them , we stayed in one of the new apartments at the front absolutely spotless have seen some reviews on here and yes the beach maybe a walk but there is a shuttle bus if you don't want to walk that picks you up right outside the door and the nearest supermarket is only a ten minute walk away hardly a marathon, Jaime and Carla fab their always smiling receptionists are wonderful and the bar food is brilliant and reasonably priced , pool area lovely ,within a ten minute walk you will come across lots of bars and restaurants without having to go to the main square I would definitely recommend The Welcome ,The Pizza Hot, Spice, all doamazing food and The crown and The cavern have entertainment everynight all within ten minutes from the hotel so you can split your nights out between these and the main square bars and restaurants we loved it and will be returning

Have just returned from 9 nights at The Tabaiba. When we arrived was greeted by the receptionist who was friendly and cheerful. The apartments are on two levels and ours was across the road at the back of the main one. When we arrived in the room the patio door lock was broken so had to report it to reception who were very quick in sorting it out. The apartment was big & roomy, but unfortunately this was as good as it gets. The beds were like camp beds, very uncomfortable. The view from the patio looked like a ploughed field with rocks. The room had no air con and were very hot& noisy and you could hear everything going on in the other rooms. There are no shops near for basics like water etc. it is a 20/25min walk to nearest supermarket and to the main beach & restaurants it was 35mins. We were told the cleaner came in 3 times but she only came in once, had to take our rubbish down the road and a clean set of towels the day before we left!

We chose the Tabaiba appartments for our holiday based on cost and the good reviews on here. Happy to report that we were delighted with our decision. We were allocated one of the 1 bed appartments in the new block and whilst the appartment was fairly spartan in terms of decoration and luxuries it was perfectly clean, comfortable & functional. There was a tv with sky channels which we never used ( a good thing IMO), a couch which was comfy for siestas, a couple of chairs which were fine and a dining table chairs combo that we never really used for its proper purpose. The kitchen was a touch under equipped if we had intended to cook anything substantial, but there was a kettle, fridge, a microwave, filter coffee machine and a 2 ring hob, so we got by quite happily with what we had, choosing to dine out every night in some of the many restaurants available in the town centre. The appartment we got was one of the larger ones with 2 balconies, 1 small one that looked out to sea and across Costa Teguise & the main balcony which easily held a table, 2 chairs, a sunned & a drying rack, with plenty of space left over, which overlooked the pool. Spoiled for choice there.
There are 2 pools to choose from, one in the new block, 1 in the main section, neither heated as far as I could tell but clean & fresh with more than enough sun beds for the amount of guests that were there. Both pools had shallow separate pools which were ideal for kids to play in.
We only ate in the hotel once, on our first night and it wasn't great but we were tired and so wouldn't want to grade the hotel based on one single meal when I wasn't at my best as this would not be fair.
The staff however I am more than happy to grade, very highly, they were all friendly & helpful and there's not a single thing I could complain about, that kind of reflects the whole experience we had in costa teguise, everyone we dealt with was friendly & helpful, even the "hey del-boy"' knock-offs sellers took a no thanks and left you in peace.
If you have limited mobility or don't like walking much then tabaiba may be a little far out of the way, it's about 1.5 miles out from the main square which we found to be a pleasant walk through some cactus gardens down towards the beach and then along the promenade into the centre. There is a free bus that takes you into the main part 3 times a day and drops you off as close to the main beach as a bus can get, taxis are plentiful and cost between 3-4 euros depending on the time of night you use them.

While we thorough enjoyed our stay in The Tabaiba Appartments, if we were to return to Costa Teguise I would like to be a bit closer to the main area...but if budget did not allow it I would quite happily return and stay here again. Great value for money & lovely people

stayed there from July 14 to July 28th, had a great time, staff super friendly, place very clean. Dinner 4.90, chilli con carne is a must!. drinks and ice cream at reasonable prices too!. Jennyfer at reception super friendly and helpful!, Jaime (from the sahara) and Carla (from Uruguay) were superfriendly at the restaurant &bar! , pools clean, hotel clean, I even got lollypops for my daughter from the lady that works in the laundrette!. stayed at apt 619 and it was great. Only complain is that 5 young guys arrived to the apt above us and starting having an "after party" after arriving back from the town. But was sorted by the security staff and they were quiet after that .only suggestion to hotel is to separate families and couples from party groups. apart from that everything perfect!.Shuttle bus right on time ,very clean and had air conditioning. Highly recommend to families.

It was exactly what I was looking for. The place had some kids, but certainly not over run by them. Busier down the front, but sociable in the back building with more patio's than balconies. People sat out at night and socialised over their low walls which was nice.
The Wi-Fi costs extra and had a bit of a problem connecting to it. At the time my laptop was telling me it was the rooter, but really was too busy to care for the internet.
The place itself is very well kept and staff are friendly. Most, if not all speak good English.
One downfall of the rooms was that the 'Z' bed is horrendous to sleep on for a full week, but soon realised you can take the seat-cushion from the couch and add that for comfort.
The beach is a bit away, but there is a free bus 3 times daily to it and back at suitable times which is a bonus. The snack bar prices are a bit much, but you get that in any complex which is why we usually opt to go out for meals. That way you get to see a bit of the island too. The market at the plaza is a must see! Plenty of night life down there and great people. Different types of bars (and stalls for the kids.) Caricature artists for the ones looking for a 'self portrait!'
All in a relaxing resort with friendly people, but pricey.

My partner and I just got back from our holiday from this hotel these are the problems we had whilst there:
1. Clenliness - When we arrived apartment floor was dirty and apartment was cleaned twice during our week stay (once after 3 days of staying there and once again but only for clean towels - floors not cleaned and beds not changed)
2. Pool - Pool is manky and filter is switched off at night so pool is never properly cleaned
3. Apartment - Apartment had no toaster or kettle - seemed to lack the basics
4. Hazard - We had wires hanging from the ceiling above the shower - not very safe
5. Other issues - fridge/ freezer in apartment had a missing door so everything that was put in the fridge was frozen. The shower cube doors were loose and wet the floor constantly which was dangerous as the whole apartment had a tiled floor.
6. Location - It is a very long walk to the town it is about 1 mile before you will hit the town taking at least 30 minutes walking time also a long walk from the nice beach. We don't mind walking but by the end of the week it does get rather annoying - cant just nip out and back to hotel without it being a long walk.

I did read other reviews before booking this hotel and other reviews seemed to be great (hence why we booked to stay here) but seriously find somewhere else unless you are happy to stay somewhere that shouldn't be any more than a 2*
