Just returned from Plaza Azul on 17th March. Overall the apartments and surrounding pool areas are clean and well kept. As others have already mentioned the towels should be changed more often as a shower in the morning and one at night to wash the suncream off leave the towels rather wet. We were lucky as the weather was excellent during our stay and could therefore dry them at the back of the apartment. All the apartments are situated round the pool however some are positioned considerably better than others. At first we were given apartment B11 which is probably the only apartment that is south facing but looks at a wall about 3 metres away. We asked to change and moved into B19 on the other side of the pool which was slightly better as you could lie in the sun at the back of the apartment where there was 2 sunbeds if you didn't want to sit round the pool..
There are 64 apartments on the complex and most people were self catering. We soon saw why our Half board option was a mistake. We have stopped in many hotels in the Canaries and the half board option has always suited us with plenty of choice in the usual buffet style. For our first evening meal we sat down to a nicely set out table. The waiter came up and gave us a plastic coated Pool bar menu and asked us to choose 1 item from it or there was a special option of a Sirloin steak and salad and frozen chips. This special option continued for the rest of the week whether it was pork steak or chicken Always with salad and frozen chips. Every evening there was then the option of icecream or nothing.!!
The morning breakfast was slightly better with the option of full English or omelette or continental. The full English started off with 2 eggs 2 bacon and 2 sausage. By the end of the week it was 2 bacon 1 egg and 1 sausage ?
So overall its a good base to stay as it's only 5 minutes from the promenade and about in the middle of the strip but don't go for the Half board option. !!
