“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed 20 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is really an excellent apartment in a great position if you like a quiet relaxing experience in an authentic Spanish town. There is a local beach - the sand is a bit grey but clean. The accommodation is first class and very well equipped. It is spotlessly clean and very well organised. It has a stunning terrace which overlooks the sea. Some great outside furniture and everything you could need for a relaxed holiday. The access is excellent and although the parking space is not on the same level as the apartment there is a lift from the parking to the apartment. You don't have to walk up the steps if you have any difficulty - just use the lift.
The lounge is very well equipped and comfortable. Not much UK TV but great wi-fi. (take you tablet or laptop and load "film on TV' - then you can watch UK TV as much as you like)
The whole complex is very well maintained. The pool is spotless (although too cold for us in February!)
We honestly don't think you can find a better apartment in Fuerteventura for the price.
The town is typically Spanish - don't go here if you want lots of tourist attractions or if you want loads of night life. But DO go here if you want to wander along the sea front, relax in a cafe with a coffee and watch the boats come and go from the marina.
The owner is extremely helpful and very well organised. all instructions are clear and information very useful.

“Great apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was our first visit to Fuerteventura but will most definitely not be our last. The apartment is huge and had ample room for the four of us (two adults and two teens). It is well equipped and was clean and comfortable. The massive terrace/balcony has a fabulous view of the sea, bay and mountains over the swimming pool below. ( This view can also be appreciated from the lounge area thanks to the full width sliding glass doors.) Half of this area has a very substantial sun awning which can be rolled out or kept open. There is an air conditioning unit in the lounge but not anywhere else in the apartment. This would be my only criticism but with the caveat that the bedrooms all have ceiling fans. The swimming pool is a proper 25m pool and as we are a sporty family we were able to use this for regular swim training. The pool and surrounding area was always kept very clean (on site maintenance staff clean it daily as well as put out and store away the loungers and sun umbrellas morning and evening) There are three large under building garages with parking spaces for each property and only accessible via a security barrier.
The bay just in front of the complex is backed with stones and rocks rather than sand but is safe for swimming (we did so several times). The nearest sandy beach however is no more than a ten minute walk via the modern marina which separates the two bays. This is the Gran Tarajal town beach and is black sand but very large and again is a safe beach to swim off.
Along the back of the beach is a pleasant promenade where families socialise each evening. Lining this promenade are several excellent and good value restaurants, Italian, Mexican, Spanish, Chinese as well as one place you can get a good filet steak for an incredible €15! There is also a very good fish restaurant on the side of the marina. The fish is landed here and couldn't be any fresher (They will bring out a large platter of uncooked examples of the fish they have on offer that day).
We stayed for three weeks and travelled the whole island via hire car. For us Gran Tarajal was still the best place to be. It is authentically Spanish with 'local' prices in the supermarkets and restaurants and little concession to tourism. Some of the well known resorts were our idea of holiday hell (over developed and full of the 'union flag shorts' and 'here we go brigade'! Not so in Gran Tarajal.
Cycling (we only did road cycling) is a delight from this base too. The tarmac road surfaces are immaculate and even in. August never busy. The vast majority of drivers are very courteous towards cyclists. In town as a pedestrian you only have to look as if you want to cross the road and the drivers will stop for you!
The owners of the apartment are English and couldn't have been more helpful (via e.mail).
It is not a question of if we will be back, more like when!

“Great apartment, lovely views”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Slyph in April 2015. The apartment was clean and well equipped.The view from the terrace was of the sea and mountains, it was lovely to sit and sunbathe. The pool was cooler than the sea, at this time of year, but we did use it daily!! We liked the location which was quiet and near the town of Gran Tarajal. The beach there was sandy and sheltered and we swam in the sea several times. We were impressed by the restaurants in Gran Tarajal, which were walking distance from the apartment. It was a good base to visit the island and the scenery is stunning and dramatic. We would recommend this apartment to others.

“excellent apartment”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My daughter and I (age 26 and 61) stayed here the first week of March for a bit of wintersun. All directions and information was spot on. The aparment was abolutely spotless. Good quality beds and bedlinen. Spacious bathroom with good working shower. Comfortable in all ways with everything you need.(some better reading lights both in bedrooms and by the sofa would be great) Wifi works well. Home from home. Huge terass with sun all day, beautiful views over sea, mountains and sky. Very quiet (dont be put off by the road/roundabout on the photo, there is very little traffic. it is a really peaceful location. The pool( not heated) and pool area is also maintained every morning and kept in pristine condition.
Gran Tarajal is a lovely quiet little town and surprisingly authentic with few tourists as no hotels. It is refreshingly void of fish and chips, pubs and tourist tat. Some very good restaurants along the seafront, all friendly and good value.
The little fishrestaurant by the fish market/marina is fantastic if you like and know fresh fish.
The walk from apartment to town/marina is approx 10-20 min..
Would recommend a car for your food shopping and also doing outing around the island.It's great to have a space in the garage.
The deposit was paid back promptly.
Would definately come back.

“Perfectly Peaceful”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just back from 2 weeks staying at Casa Sylph in Gran Tarajal. Holiday plans changed a wee bit when my husband fell and broke his arm just three days before travelling to Fuerte, but Casa Sylph proved to be the perfect base for his rest and rehab. Lovely spacious,well equipped apartment with all the facilities you could wish for. Quiet, peaceful location with lovely sea view from the large balcony. Our two girls are big into athletics and fitness and were over the moon to have the use of the gym and 25 mtr pool almost exclusively to themselves. Gran Tarajal itself is a pretty quiet town with a number of beachside cafes and restaurants, we ate at a few of them and found them all to be good value. H|iperdino and Spar (Padilla) supermarkets were both well stocked and also good value. Would recommend car hire if you want to see a bit of the island, but Grand Tarajal is a great base to explore from. Great selection of DVD's in the apartment also if you decide to have a night or two staying in. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would fully recommend Casa Sylph, Hopefully we will return again.

It's all been said before in other reviews. Gran Tarajal is a lovely Spanish town that has not yet been spoiled by mass touirsm. We have now found the place in Fuerteventura that we would like to return to on our next visit.

When we arrived we found the apartment had a wow factor as soon as we walked in as it was so spacious. Walking onto the enormous terrace we found ourselves overlooking the sea and a small rocky beach.The sun loungers allowed us,along with some hot sunny days to enjoy the quiet relaxation on the terrace. Gran Tarajel is a short walk from the apartment with plenty of restaurants and shops (SUPERMARKETS ARE CLOSED ON SUNDAY).
One of the many restaurants to mention overlooking the beach is Carnes Don Cangrejo the staff were so friendly and the steaks and paella were enjoyed a number of times during our three week stay.We would recomend car hire to ensure you enjoy the many places of interest situated further afield.
