We were pleasantly surprised by the apartment. It was big, clean and had everything we needed for the three of us. Considering the amount we paid we were very pleased with the facilities available.

We were visiting for a diving holiday, with Tenerife Dive who are based at the Marino, so we only really used the apartment as a base, however the staff were very helpful and friendly and the maid service was excellent. The shower was great, excellent hot water and good power - lovely! and the bed was very comfy - even my husband was happy and he usually complains about every bed except our own!

The resort itself was very quiet and laid back and has a nice friendly feel to it, it's just families and older people so no noise from late night parties. The Ten Bel area is a little run down but work appears to be going on to update it. We went for a couple of lovely walks around the coast line, over the nearby old volcano known as the Yellow Mountain (more of a little hill!). The rock formations are fantastic and well worth a visit.

All in all a fantastic holiday. I would definitely recommend the Marino to others.

This was the second time me and my partner went there this year. I booked it again because I was happy with the hotel, and organising my own holiday, rather than use a travel agent, because it's a lot cheaper and I could choose when I was going, from where, and for how long. I started by searching for the cheapest flights, and then by checking google to see if I could book a room at the hotel to match the flight dates. I got 9 nights, for two people, in a self catering double apartment, balcony and kitchen - just over £200 between us!!

The hotel itself is a largish low-rise complex situated at the far end of the very small town of Costa de Silencio. It has a large adult pool, a kid’s pool and a jacuzzi. There's loads of sun beds (help yourself) but some of them are well used and uncomfortable. Also there was, on both occasions, people who bagged them early on then ‘disappeared' for couple of hours (really annoying). There's a large bar and restaurant at the end, to cool off you don't fancy a dip (coffee or diet coke is €1.50). They didn't seem to be doing evening meals this time (dunno why) but you can get breakfast there. There's also a mini- supermarket to buy basics, papers/mags, ciggies (€2.20 for 20) ice creams etc etc. It's dear for food though, a basket of basics (morning goods) when we arrived came to about €30. There's a cig and coffee machine by the lift (coffee not bad for 70c).
Reception is big - english speaking staff, pretty friendly (you could tell when they were on an off-day though). Safe was €20 for our stay. Wi-fi- there's 3 connections - Marino 1, 2 and 3. You ask for the password at the desk. It's the same for each connection, but marino 1 is stronger in the reception, 2 for the pool, and I don’t know what 3 is for. Beware though, when I asked for the code on my first day - it was the wrong one - it said 'authentication error' on my phone and tablet. I queried it with reception and she said it was right, and pointed out the people in reception already on their computers. I showed her the error message, so she got a technician who said he'd just changed it, and gave me the new one (it changed again while we were there). Wi fi doesn't work in the rooms or balcony.
Rooms are clean and basic - but they do vary - first time we went we had a larger twin apartment, with a smaller kitchen, and a dark balcony. It also had a flat screen TV (no english channels apart from euronews). This time, the room was smaller (OK still), double bed, bigger kitchen and CRT TV (with BBC world news and english film channels). Maids come every day except Wednesdays, mid morning - ish. There's hardly any elecrical plugs though, so you will have to set up a device charging rota!! Kitchen had a normal size fridge with ice box, washing machine (both new - the machine had the shortest washing cycle on it I have ever seen - a bonus). There is a Microwave, toaster, coffe percolator, electric cooker (hob oven grill extractor). Bathroom was a bit dark (hairdryer in there, shower and bath).
There's a lift at one end of the hotel (the reception end) but not at the bar end. You can't access the upper floors of the bar end of the complex from the reception end. I stayed in the reception end, but last time at the bar end. So you will need to use the stairs if staying at the bar end (only one flight). It's not a noisy place*, mostly older people, but there is a kid’s area (play pen etc) so I guess there's kids there in the school hols. There's quite a few long term residents (Brits and Belgians - Belgians I think because they established a community at Ten - Bel a long time ago). Ten bel is just between Silencio and Las Galletas (just up the road).

*A small warning – the hotel is on the approach path for inbound flights coming in to land at Tenerife Sur airport. It’s not that noisy, and it’s OK for plane spotters cos they come in pretty low. Don’t let it put you off.

Location - It's about five mins walk from the Hermusa Supermarket. I only ate in a couple of nights, but the supermarket has a brilliant selection and is really cheap (deli counters etc - like a 'proper' supermarket if you like). Turn left out the main doors, cross the road, and go right - it's at the end - closes for siesta mind - 1pm till 4pm.
Turn right out the front door for the mini market (It’s called cheap or cheapo or something) - for little things like water, ciggies, sweets, juice etc (they do food and booze aswell). This is on the right of the Calle Minerva. Keep going and cross the mini roundabout and there's a mini shopping centre - it's got Cashpoints, restaurants, bars, a supermarket, and a British run chippy (called the golden chip). It was handy 'cos on our first night, we arrived late and the chippy was the only thing open.
Turn left before you get to the mini shopping centre, and after about 500 yards there’s the main bus stop and further up more restaurants. The bus stop is the terminus - you can get buses to the main towns (like Santa Cruz to the north) or the bus to Los Christinos and Playa de las Americas (along the coast to the west). The ‘inter city’ buses begin with a 2, the local buses with a 4 (all run by Titsa). You need the 467 to Christinos and Playa - €1.45 single. 20 Minute ride – we used it nearly every day (they don’t do returns).
The bus also goes to Las Galletas – bigger town with lots of shops and cafes/bars, all concentrated in the middle. The place does fall eerily quiet for siesta though, so if shopping there, go in the morning or after 4pm. The bars are all open all the time.
The beaches in the area are pretty non-existent (despite what the brochure might suggest) – the coast is mainly rocks and shingle. For proper sandy beaches, go to Christianos or Playa. (about €12 – 14 for a sunbed – a bit steep I think, but hey you’re on your hols). PS while I was on the Playa Vista (nice beach in Christianos – no seaweed or stones in the sea, black sand) a chinese lady came round offering massage – I declined at first until 2 women on the next bed had one and it looked good. I had one – it was lovely, flat out on my sunbed in the sunshine. You can have 30 mins on upper or lower body (€10) or whole body (€20).
It’s a great place, especially if you have children – not so good for teenagers.
NB I don’t know whether I am allowed to say this, but I booked the room and transfers on-line through Alpharooms (a small co I imagine but easy to deal with and to contact by phone if needed), and the flights direct with Thomas Cook airlines.

We stayed for 10 days in a one bedroom apartment requested a quiet room so had a side room overlooking apartments next door. The apartment was spacious and clean with a well equipped kitchen including washing machine and small freezer! Room hairdryer is rather weak may want to take your own. Pool area is clean and we made good use of the pool Kaygans bar next to the pool does a reasonably priced breakfast excellent coffees and we had nice snacks there too. Didn't eat in Hotel restaurant. The apartments are in a quiet residential area although the sea is behind the hotel there is no beach which we missed, its a wee walk uphill to some good restaurants including Alejandros, Stellas (best breakfast) Harvester and Coral mar bar, farther down the road is a very good Lebanese restaurant with an amazing Mango curry. You dont need to take books, near the restaurants in a dip by the roundabout is a charity shop (closed at weekends) with a vast selection of books we also bought mugs from here for the room for those preferring a decent size cuppa. Buses into Las Galletas, Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas, again a wee walk were very good frequent cheap and clean. altogether its a good value for money Apartment in a quiet location.

Room Tip: Can be noisy if close to pool although music finishes about 11.00ish

had a really lovely stay at our hotel, room was very clean and spacious for two people. had a good maid service, All the staff were very helpful and freindly. We found a lovely restaurant just around the corner from the hotel named Alejambra, the proprieters were lovely people and the food was delicious, all of which we enjoyed, they offer home made cakes and pastries and desserts to die for. We also took the bus to the beach at Medano about 3 Euros, and 2 Euros to Las Christianos. taxis are very expensive, The resort is quiet and this is good if you like a restful holiday, however there was entertainment on at the on site restaurant every night. The only complaint is that there are no sun shade umbrellas around the pool to shade under, as the sun is relentless around the pool. We would definately revisit the Marino again in the future.
