This is our 4th stay at this Apartment/Hotel in the last 3 years. We have alwyas enjoyed our stay there although we have not made much use of its facilities apart from the apartment and reception. There is a restaurant that serves buffet style meals, a bar, pool bar, 2 adult swimming pools and 2 childrens pools and a childrens play area. The hotel rooms are essentially in 2 sets each set surrounding one of the 2 adult pools some rooms have sea views, others not or at least very limited sea-views. All the rooms are at ground, 1st or 2nd floor level. If you are elderly or limited by stairs then you need to be aware that a large number of the rooms are not serviced by lifts so you need to specify which block you want with a lift. Blocks E8, E9, E10 and E 11 all have lifts but blocks E1 to E7 don't. Carrying suitcases up two flights of stairs is hard work, not to mention each time you leave and enter your room so be aware (see photo).
The rooms are spacious and well laid out all with a balcony, they are getting a bit on the well used side of things but are clean and cleaned about 4 times a week by the maid.
There is a safety deposit box in each room but you have to buy the rental at 13 euros a week with a refundable deposit of 20 euros.
A TV remote control is avilable for a refundable 20 euros. Matresses for the sun-loungers are 6 euros a week.
The hotel is situated at the end of Ave Jablillo facing towards Arrecife Port where the cruise liners stop. Along the front of the hotel are anumber of shops a restaurant and the bar Iguana where you can get snacks and drinks and will be welcomed by the friendly owner. There is a Tobacconist/Liquer/Money exchange shop next to the bar 'Sonalis' where the prices and exchange rates are good but from my experiences you need to watch your change and exchange rates closely. There are innumerable bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk all very good. Each eveing there is live entertainment in the 'Square' behind the Funde Grubbe' store on Calle las Olas. Under the band stand where the artistes perform is a little bar called 'The Snug (Mandy's Bar)' where you get good value drinks and service.
You can walk along the sea front in both directions along a weel paved sea-front to the right and a less weel paved walk to your left. Also there are signed walks that follow green red and blue walks along the sea front and behid Costa Teguise - if you like walking they're very enjoyable. If you go left along the sea front you can see a a small village on the hillside which you can walk to - nothing there but the walk is nice and the view back to Costa Teguise is good.
Visit Teguise market on a Sunday for a good shopping experience or Playa Blanca market. The trips available are also good and enjoyable and wort doing to see more of the island.
Of special note for us at least is Restuarant Vesubio very close to the hotel on the sea front behind the 'Customer' travel services kiosk - very good italian meals nice view towards Arrecife and friendly and excellent service. The other place of speical note is the chinese buffet restaurant offering as much as you can eat for 4.5 euros but you must also buy a drink th food is excellent with a very extensive selection of dishes to choose from. Across the road is a well stocked supermarket if your self-catering.
That's about it apart from mentioning the beds are hard.
We've stayed at Playa Blanca but prefer Costa Teguise.
