“Great Apartments”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great apartments for the money, very clean and the staff very friendly nothing was too much trouble from asking for extra pillows or more hangers they were delivered to the room within 5 mins. Great location although we didnt eat in there is a small supermarket right across the road and restaurants and bars are just 2 mins away like the beach. The rooms were large with everything we needed including plenty of blankets for the nights which could be chilly. All public areas were clean and very tidy I have absolutely nothing negative to say about these apartments which although not 5 star were excellent value for money and will stay there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms had good locations with large balconies and many overslip the sea or the pool area.

Stayed here for 4 weeks (February 2013) and on the whole hotel was ok although is in need of refurbishment. We were unhappy with the first room we were allocated but we were moved right away to a better one. We were self catering so cannot comment on hotel meals but were told by other guests that the breakfasts were good.
My main disappointment with the hotel were the swimming pools. One is advertised as being heated, but certainly did not feel like it. Main disappointment was that the access to the swimming pools was only by ladders, as I have a hip problem this was very difficult for me and therefore I only used the pool twice during the whole time we were there, I would normally swim at least twice a day.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, particularly Tania who was delightful.
For the price we paid overall hotel was adequate and was cleaned very regularly and towels and bed linen replaced twice weekly.
Would not deter anyone from staying here, very good central location near to beaches and restaurants etc.
Costa Tequise is lovely, especially enjoyed the coastal promenade which is beautiful.

Room Tip: We were in block 7 on the ground floor overlooking the pool. It was a great sun trap.

Good morning dear BonnieShropshire,

Thank you for your comments about our complex.

We check daily the temperature of the heated pool and the average temperature is 25 celsius degrees, as it is an open air pool sometimes we feel it is cooler ... we are doing some studies to improve the access of the swimming pool in the future so we appreciate your suggestions about this.

Despite this we are glad you are happy with the customer care.

Have a nice day and hope to have you back soon!

A very enjoyable holiday in a good central location.Self catering appartments with nice child friendly restaurant for breakfast and evening meals overlooking sea (6euro buffet breakfast), with small supermarket across the road,2 beaches minutes away as are lots of cafes and bars.2 big pools and 2 baby ones but only one big one heated in march and only barely so,It wasnt pleasant,particularly with the ever present wind..Baby pools are shallow but freezing so couldnt use them.Sea freezing too,NO HIGHCHAIRS AVAILABLE for rooms which is ridiculous in child friendly self catering.NO HAIRDRYER but can be hired at 2euros a day.NO KETTLE but there is microwave which takes a while to heat a cup of water.Reception staff speak good english and are helpful.Had room on ground floor overlooking pool,(block 7, rm 119),but the tile corridor outside is the access for a tall laundry trolley which rumbles like a freight train at 8pm-10pm so disturbing/frightening sleeping kids.Hour wait for coach transfer from airport but journey is only 30mins. and drop off was at corner not at accommodation( thru On the Beach).Dont miss the day trip to the volcano national park its well worth the money,but a long day.Also dont miss the Teguise market on sunday.V picturesque small capital with all streets having market stalls,bars and restauarants.Need at least 3hrs there.Last Minute tour is cheaper than local bus but time limited.Last local bus leaves at 1.30pm unfortunately,or its an 18euro taxi back.Local restaurants same price as in UK.Supermarket essentials more expensive than UK.

We stayed here last June, and will never return. I have written this before, but has got removed? wonder why! Firstly, on all other websites the hotel is advertised on it is advertised as 4*, do not be tricked like we were, it is a 3*. We went b&b, and the breakfast was the worst thing i had tasted ever. Our room had a no working telephone, blood stains on our door handle/door/curtains, warm water in shower was iffy. However the bathroom all in all was quite nice. It does need updating. We asked about the table tennis balls, but never got them? they were all broken. The cleaners took our towels, we asked reception for them, went out for an hour back to our room and we still had no towels. The hotel does not have any lifts, which is a pain for carrying cases up the stairs. The hallways are grubby, the gaps in the windows brought in really cold wind. The pools were always dirty. However the hotel's location is fab, right next to the beach, and everything. The chinese restraunt on the corner is amazing, excellent service! The water park was really fun to, perfect for familys! Night life is good. However i will never return to this hotel, it seems like a lot of people always move to the hotel opposite? i wish we did. Let's hope this review does not get removed!

Most exellent accommodation, apartment was extremely spacious for us as a couple and very clean.
Reception staff most friendly and helpful. We had a problem with balcony doors on arrival, wihtin 15 minutes of reporting this it was fixed. The pool area is an oasis with plenty of space for sunbathing and swimming. I would reccommend the evening bar's cocktail of the day for 3.50 euro, it changes every evening and each one is lovely and plentyful. We would definately come back.

Room Tip: pay the small fee for a top floor room with sea views.
