Good apartments in a great location. Well equipped kitchen, electric cooker and hob, toaster and kettle. Could cook a full meal if you really wanted to (not that I did!) Numerous restaurants within easy walking distance but book in advance as they get very busy. Bus stop almost opposite apartments can easily get to other places in Tenerife. Swimming pool...

Good hotel, clean, basic but what we needed for our short stay. Room were large enough. Location is excellent. Only down side is that it is next to the hill that the buses/cars come up and down from. Staff were very friendly

We visited Los Gigantes at the end of January.This was our first visit to Tenerife, but won't be our last. The apartments were perfect for us, clean and comfortable, and extremely well furnished and maintained.The staff were friendly and efficient, the pool area was busy, but not overly so. The complex is in a great position, not too far from...

El Sombrero apartments are conveniently situated in the centre of Los Gigantes close to the bus stop and only a short walk from shops, restaurants and the harbour. The apartments are adequate - the kitchen was cramped and short of utensils (a microwave would have been useful), but the bedroom and bathroom were fine and everything was kept very clean....

Stayed for a week with a friend in a 2 bedroom apartment, which was basic, comfortable and clean. We self cater to keep the cost down and for us the kitchen was a bit under equipped, hardly any utensils, just 2 ladles! and no microwave. Towels and loo roll were replenished by the super efficient cleaners, and all the staff...

With a backdrop like the cliffs of Los Gigantes, El Sombrero is perfectly placed for winter sun. This is the second time I’ve stayed here and it doesn’t appear to have changed much other than a limited refit of the apartments. The hills are quite steep and it’s easy to get stuck behind the plentiful slower visitors on pavements around...

The apartment gives the best of both worlds - freedom to lounge, cook or just have a cuppa, with rooms cleaned regularly and towels changed. The apartment is spacious with a balcony, lounge area, dining area kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom. Spotlessly clean albeit ageing - couldn't ask for more. The pool area is also very clean. Supermarkets close by for...
