Apartamentos Gema Aguamarina Golf
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Golf del Sur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 22, 2012

We stayed for 7 nights in February 2012 in a spacious apartment with a great view of the sea and the pool was just down the corridor from our room on the first floor. There was no kettle or toaster in the apartment but there were saucepans. The lack of kettle and toaster was not a problem for us as we ate across the road in the wildgeese Irish bar and just down from there in a lovely restaurant called Bistro 27; you could get a 3 course meal for less than €9. There was a free bus from the apartments when booked a day in advance and this would bring you to Las Americas and Los Criostianos which were only 10 mins away, the bus would collect you again that evening at either 5.30 or 6.30, whichever you preferred. The resort was very handy as it was only 15 mins from the airport but I was not happy that there was no free WiFi, there was free WiFi across the road in the Irish bar, the Wild Geese. The apartments were thoroughly cleaned every other day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on floor room so as to be close to the pool

We had a half term family break and thought it excellent value for money. The apartment was clean and the maid came every other day. The views were wonderful and the pool area was good. Whilst we had been warned about the salt water in the swimming pools, we were a bit disappointed by how cold the water was: apart from the indoor pool at the hotel they all appeared to be unheated. However we loved the peace and quiet. If you wanted more action, you could go into the other nearby towns but as a family we appreciated the quieter atmosphere of Golf Del Sur. Having said that, we did rent a car which was incredibly cheap, 99 Euros for 4 days (only a few places to hire from it seems but they all seem to try to undercut each other in low season at least). We wanted a relaxing and warm holiday in the sun, and we got that, but with more luxury at the apartments than we had expected.

Excellent hotel, we stayed over half term b&b. First room we had was 308 which was next door to the cleaners room... Big mistake at 7am the cleaner starts work and you are awake banging of metal buckets and I'm sure she must have size 10 feet with high heels... When I complained at reception they said they would tell her to keep quiet, so we gave them a chance. But the next morning was just as bad, they moved us to a great room with a superb view. The breakfast is excellent anything you want, entertaining watching the oldies stealing fruit and bread, and belive me there are masses of them (oldies I mean) I'm mid forties but I felt a mere youngster here, coming back to the hotel of an evening you can be made to feel rather uncomfortable as you walk in as the oldies sit in the same seat each evening and watch you walk in. We only stayed in the bar one evening, as all the others there was no seats available.
Don't let this put you off if you have already booked, also once the winter is over there will probably more families.
The hotel has several sports going on which is good, we played football,tennis,badminton, basket ball and table tennis, but a car is really needed due to the location of the hotel. The hotel offers a free bus to Las Americas and Los Cristianos, but we never tried this.
If you are a family and/or under 65, I would book elsewhere during winter months.

Room Tip: dont stay in 208,308,408 or 508 stay in 301,401 or 501

We needed a bed for the night close to the airport as we had an early flight and were staying in the North. This was great value for £30.00 for the one night! It was easy to find- though we got there in the dark it was well signposted once off the dual- carriageway main road.
The receptionist was friendly and spoke good English. The apartment was very spacious, the kitchen area well equipped and with a large fridge freezer, microwave etc. The bedroom and bed were very large - we found the bed too hard, but some people prefer that.
The reception is open 24 hours, and they woke us at 4am as requested, it was only a ten minute drive to the airport.
We thought that this would be an excellent place to spend much more time, especially for a family holiday, because there was a generous amount of space and it was well designed.

Room Tip: There seemed to be a lot of them, it was not at all full at this time of year.

We spent a week on b&b basis in an apartment which overlooked the marina and were impressed by the standards. The apartment was spacious and the maid service was excellent. We ate breakfast in the adjoining hotel and the quality of the food was high. There is an in-house laundrette and poolside cafe, both offering value for money. The pool and terrace were the best features : never crowded and well-laid out.

We have just returned from Tenerife following a 3 weeks holiday on half board. These apartments are very spacious, very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely view of the sea and marina and a double size balcony. A quiet area with lovely walks to neighbouring coastal villages. There was a huge choice of food at every meal. The main course at dinner was sometimes disappointing but there was always food being cooked fresh on the griddle and a roast of some kind. No frills but honest to goodness value for money. We went to Las Americas one day and were glad to get back to San Miguel; it was just like Blackpool in August. We didn't have any tummy upsets in all the time we were there and that counts for a lot. Its on our agenda to go again next year but for a month.

Room Tip: AAll rooms have sea views but some are better than others. The ones nearest the sea are best at the...

We spent two weeks in December electing to go half board the food was not good in the main restaurant it was always cold even if you were down first sitting. The Argentine restaurant was only open two nights per week and the food was lovely as was the service the waiter was first class.It was a shame that the menu did not change.
The apartment was quite drab and the furniture was like basket weave with a cover over it and not at all comfortable. Self-catering would not have been possible as the apartment did not even have a kettle or toaster it was poorly equipped. Full marks to the cleaning staff as they kept the apartment spotless.
Worth a mention we did get the second week at a reduced rate having agreed to take a tour of the property and agreed to give our opinion on the resort (we specially asked was this a sales push for selling time share and we were told it was not. We spent five hours with someone from Future Resorts Marketing and sorry to say that this a form of selling time share and we found the rep very pushy and also quite offensive. We spoke with a number of couples who had experienced the same treatment some even worse than what we had and we all vouched never again it totally spoiled our holiday.
Would we pay a return visit to this resort Never.
