“Well positioned, reasonably priced & spacious apartments”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We returned to Los Gigantes after about 15 years to the same El Sombrero apartments in Tenerife. We were not disappointed in any way. The apartments had been updated and we were pleasantly surprised with the size of the one bedroom apartment we had booked when we arrived. The balconies on the top all had excellent views of the sea and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the sun set each night over a glass of wine or 2!!! The whole site around and within the apartments were kept clean throughout our stay and the people in the reception could not have been more helpful. It is definitely best to book your hire car for good value for money.
We will certainly return again and wont hesitate to book the same apartments. This time we wont leave it so long before our return!

Room Tip: Higher floors will have the better views and it is worth spending a little more if you're a coup...

I am fast running out of superlatives to describe the El Sombrero experience
each time we have visited has been better than the last.
From Juan and Pedro in reception right down to the cleaning ladies and the pool guy nothing is too much trouble, if you have any kind of problem just ask and in no time it will be sorted.If you want clean comfortable accomodation in a peaceful environment then this is the place to come, however if you want drunken louts, unruly kids and teenagers bombing in the pool and loud music 24/7 the I would advise you not to, maybe Los Christianos would be more your cup of tea or should I say bottle of lager!
I think the best recommendation for El Sombrero must be the amount of nice people you will meet here who will tell you that this is their umteenth visit some I have spoken to have been holidaying here for 14 years or more and would not stay anywhere else.

Just got back from our third stay at El Sombrero, and it's still fantastic. The apartments are situated only a few yards from the centre of the village and over the road from the bus station. However, it's very quiet and tranquil. The rooms are large and clean, and the complex is very well maintained with two pools and pool bar. We've stopped in one and two bed apartments, and both are more than large enough.

It's a friendly, family-run complex, which is very friendly and the owners are most accommodating. If you have any problems (and you almost certainly won't have), they will sort it for you asap.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet holiday in a small village setting.

An excellent base to explore this lovely corner of Tenerife. The apartments are clean and large, with a big balcony, and have everything you need for self-catering. The pool is lovely, and there are plenty of sunbeds. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There is no need for any frills, as there are restaurants, bars, cafes and shops on the doorstep. I would recommend the Superdino supermarket for the best value food. Ask for directions at reception. See Louise or one of her colleagues at Flipper Uno to book a whale and dolphin-watching boat trip. I saw both, and it was such fun. Go to T.J.'s for lunch in the afternoon, it is next to the Stil Los Gigantes hotel, and is an oasis of peace and tranquility. They also open in the evening for drinks including lovely cocktails and live music. Take the short cut to Puerto Santiago, it is only a 10 minutes walk, and there are lots more bars, restaurants, shops, etc. I particularly like The Courtyard, where they have live music and performers on every night, and the bar staff are so friendly. I've had 2 holidays so far in this location, and fully intend going again.

I read the reviews after booking and thought it can't be that good... We were a family of 5. 3 children ranging from 3 to 8 yrs old. Accommodation for self catering was good, spacious lots of storage very clean with all basic equipment. Sonia's pool bar excellent service great snacks good value very tasty and the best sangria, you have to try it to rate it.
Lots of great restaurants close by. If you have children entertainment at the harbour club is great. Food good too. We had a real family holiday with lots of fun and happy memories.
