This apt is not of a standard I would usually expect. The kitchen, if you could call it that, is like the blackhole of Calcutta. It is tiny with an old cupboard unit separating it from the sitting room, this is covered by a brown plastic cloth held in place with drawing pins and it is constantly covered in tiny insects! and is the only worktop. The only other two cupboards are on the wall above this and the base of these are at a height of around six feet. I do not really cook on holiday but did not even feel comfortable preparing breakfast or snacks in there. The rest of the apartment and furnishings are very old fashioned shabby and tacky, the only half decent room was the bathroom. The other concern was the misrepresentation of amenities, it is said to have Wifi and satellite tv of which it has NOT..
The only good things about this apt are the balcony and the pool area..I would definitely not recommend this to anybody
We had a great holiday here the extra big balcony made it for us we spent lots of lazy mornings and drinking afternoon on it loads of space the apartment inside is equipped with everything you would need for your holidays and the washing machine was added bonus the area is right on the seafront with all the shops bars and restaurants you want and the complex is quite and secure we will definitely be going back again and would recommend it to anyone.
Quiet location even though it is close to all the action. Incredibly safe and secure, with gates and locked doors before you even get to the apartment.
The balcony, it's huge! Seriously. For two people it was perfect. The facilities, this place has everything you could possibly need, from kitchen equipment to towels, there was an abundance of everything. The agent. Jurgen, could not be more helpful. He kept in touch, met us on arrival and was at the end of the phone if we needed anything. The icecream parlour, yep an icecream parlour at the entrance, (this should come under bad really!) the icecream was fabulous and I ate too many. Location, I list this twice as I would come here again for the location. It is almost at the end of the walk way and easy walking distance to los Cristianos beach. An abundance of restaurants, close to the ferry port and day trip boats.
The beach by the ferry port. Even though it is a nice beach, the view of a steady stream of ferries felt a little industrial rather than idyllic. Walk 10 minutes more towards playa de las Americas and the beach there is gorgeous!!!!
The smell. On entering the apartment there is a very odd smell. We tried to locate it but no luck. We bought sir freshner but that didn't help much. You don't notice it once in the apartment, just when going in the front door.
No pool. While we were there the pool was under construction. Disappointed but these things happen. It will be fabulous when finished though.
No hair dryer (that I could find)
Construction. The noise at 7.30am was challenging. I didn't appreciate it. Again no ones fault and once finished it will be delightfully peaceful.
Dated interior. Even though the apartment has everything you could possibly need, it seems a little dated.
Summary: I loved this place. For us it was perfect. Location, facilities, balcony. We would love to return when the pool is finished.
