Having been allocated a room without access to the balcony (the lock had to be replaced the following day) and suffered a power cut a few days later (connected with ongoing refurbishment of the apartments) you might expect that this will be a negative review. Instead, I would recommend the Nazaret Apartments to anyone thinking about a visit to Costa Teguise. Why? A combination of friendly staff (particularly the receptionist and nightwatchman) and apartments in a prime location in a chilled, laid-back resort with lots to see and do.
The rooms in the Nazaret Apartments are fairly basic, although the kitchen areas have recently undergone the refurbishment that I mentioned. Judging by the drilling noise we suffered most mornings this is a rolling programme which, in an all-year resort, is unavoidable at some point in the year. Perhaps this explains why we arrived to a complimentary bottle of wine and had a daily delivery of breakfast rolls, which was a nice gesture.
The Nazaret Apartments sit at the junction of Avenida el Jabillo and Avenida Islas Canarias in central Costa Teguise. The entrance is directly across the road from the Plaza Pueblo Marinero, which is the hub of the nightlife in the resort, containing an excellent selection of restaurants and bars. The complex consists of three blocks, one facing a pair of small ornamental, but usable pools and the other two arranged in an L-shape around a larger pool which sits above the level of the others. To the rear of the L-shaped blocks, the Nazaret Mansions, offers another pool and Pool Bar if you fancy a change of scene.
The design of the complex makes clever use of the rooftops of the shops on the corner site by employing them as sun terraces, meaning that even at its busiest there is ample room for everyone around the pools or terraces.
Costa Teguise, a much more compact resort than Puerto del Carmen and which has a better atmosphere than its southern neighbour, has a large selection of restaurants and bars and due to its central location, most are within 5-10 minutes of the apartments. In addition to those in the Plaza Pueblo Marinero there are further restaurants around the Calle las Olas at the other side of the Plaza. This road leads down to the main beach where a promenade, lined with more bars and restaurants, meanders round the headland, eventually returning you to the Avenida el Jabillo.
Like us, you will probably find a favourite or two which you will return to but even were you to find a different restaurant each night, I’m sure there will be enough to satisfy. Recommendations? Depends on what you’re looking for but for us the Ticino in the Pueblo Marinero was the best while Casa Blanca on Calle las Olas is worth a try. The Masala Lounge doesn’t look much but provides Indian food that you rarely get abroad.
So, if you’re thinking of the Canaries, Costa Teguise is a cut above the rest and the Nazaret Apartments offers a simple, but comfortable and centrally-located base for your visit.
