We arrived home yesterday after a lovely week at Green Ocean Apartments. I always read these reviews before booking and take a general view of comments made as I know that not everyone wants the same thing out of a holiday and I think previous reviews got it about right.
It was clean and quiet with beautiful views and just what we expected from a relaxing low cost holiday. The apartment was basic, clean and adequate for sleeping in and for keeping a bottle of wine cold for the evening. The hot water heater wasn't working when we arrived but we reported it and they fixed it. The restaurant was closed but we didn't want a restaurant on site anyway and the supermarket is poorly stocked but does at least sell water which saves having to carry it from one of the other nearby supermarkets.
The apartments are away from the main resort on the outskirts of Playa Del Ingles to the San Agustin side, so if you want nightlife on your doorstep, this isn't for you. We wanted peace and quiet at night with the option of walking to either resort and that's exactly what we got.
If you want to get to the best restaurants along the sea front in Playa, you do get a workout walking up and down the many steps but we thought it was worth it, though we did cheat a couple of nights and got a taxi back, which cost 5-6 euros. I can recommend the Coco restaurant on Playa beach. The view across the bay is spectacular and the taxi rank is just a few hundred metres away if, like us, you over indulge in their food and wine.
