We spent a week here in late February to catch some early sun. Location is good, being in a reasonably quiet part of town with plenty of restaurants and small bars nearby. It is situated close to the Playa Del Ingles promenade which runs above the beach for several miles in both directions from this area and is a very pleasant way of spending a day viewing the local scene, as well as providing a easy way to the town centre and the suberb beaches.
There is a bus stop outside the apartments, as well as a bus terminus within 200 yards and these provide immediate access to the very efficient bus system covering the island at reasonable prices - much cheaper that the UK. Local taxis are plentiful, clean and cheap - the cost into the centre of town costing around 3 euros.
The apartment was very clean and tidy, surprisingly large and well equipped with microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee-maker, fridge and a sufficient selection of crockery and cutley. All the apartments have a balcony with a table and chairs. One small niggle was the quality of the beds themselves - slightly uncomfortable for our old bones!
Wi Fi is available in the apartment for a charge BUT FREE in the reception area and around the swimming pool, which is large and supplied with sunbeds. However, and another small niggle, there are no mattresses for the sunbeds and thus sunbathing is uncomfortable whilst lying on a plastic surface covered only by a towel!
The apartment staff are really friendly and helpful, in particular I should mention Anna who provided advice and help and had time for everyone - thank you.
All in all, a very pleasant and relaxing location, providing excellent value for money, the weather was also good - between 21 and 27 degrees.
