We chose Costa Adeje as we preferred the area over nearby Playa Las Americas.
The apartment is easy to find right next San Eugenio shopping centre (That is if you can understand the exit system on Tenerife's motorways).
Our flight was delayed but Maria's son Hugo was so patient and was waiting at the apartment to show us around and give us the keys.
The apartment was clean, had two double bedrooms and one single, two bathrooms, a living room with enclosed balcony, a kitchen and plenty of towels. As a family we were divided on the mattresses and pillows. While I found the tempur mattress OK the foam pillow was uncomfortable and I would have preferred a hollow-fibre.
The residents pool was almost private during our stay as there was only ever one or two other people.
The apartment is in an ideal and convenient location but still quiet enough.The supermarket is 2 minutes walk, the beach 5 minutes. Its 10 minutes walk to Siam Park and just over an hours drive to Mount Teide (inland) and Loro Parque (north).
We didn't want to stay in a hotel this time, nor did we want to be bound by breakfast times. Overall we just wanted somewhere to relax after the days activities and either eat in or out, walk along the beach or take a drive; a home away from home and the apartment was perfect for this.
This apartment is in such a great location, with lots of things to do and the beach is only a 10 minute walk away. There's plenty of restaurants nearby that are reasonably priced and good quality food.
The apartment itself is a great size, very comfortable and secure. The pool was large and was never very busy so we always got a sunbed, not matter what time we went there.
Rosa (the owner) and her son Hugo were so kind and generous. They bought us water ready for when we arrived, they met us outside the apartment to show us around and was easy to get hold of them for anything we needed.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone and I can't wait to visit again.
First off I just want rate Rosa who rents out this property, lovely lovely lady!! She couldn't do enough, any questions I had before and after making my booking she was happy to answer or help. Also had to whats app her a couple of times when we arrived and nothing was a bother to her, my experience with her alone made our holiday so wonderful.
As for the property,
it has everything and more. 3 bed rooms all good sizes, comfy, clean and provided with extra sheets, towels etc. But as there is a washer and drier you can clean as you go, I found I did washing most days although I hasn't planned to.
Has got a large TV in living room however was no good to us as no English channels, this was NOT an issue as we all had our tablets and used the wifi the whole holiday, brilliant extra, and a must have for families of today.
Access to apartment isn't bad, safe area, only on first floor, with lovely balcony which gets sun all day!! Communal pool is just down stairs, and was usually quiet so we had most of it to ourselves. Rosa has a cupboard where the washing machine is check it out if you have little ones, she has left, buckets, spades, water toys ETC all stuff you don't need to buy when you visit the beautiful beach which just down the hill from the apartment, 4 mins walk tops!!
Kitchen is set up with most of the essentials you would need if you chose to cook, however there isn't any need to do any of this when EVERYTHING is on your door step, and I mean literally everything!
Took us a bit of navigating but just outside from the complex, there is a shopping centre, everything from clothes, to gifts, perfume to sunglasses. However if you get the escalators down stairs there is a huge supermarket below everything you need to create the perfect holiday and deck out the apartment with stuff you need. Prices for alcohol are amazing in here if you like a few in the room, food and house hold necessities like extra toilet rolls are all priced like they would be at home. If you can.... stock up in this supermarket as stuff in the little corner shops are a rip off in comparison.
You have a GREAT range of restaurants, all from budget to more on the posh end we tried quite a few and not a lot we could fault with any of them.
to name a few
St Eugens, good entertainment bar (spent most nights in here)
Temple Bar, nice food and drink (Irish entertainment)
Scotch corner, lovely breakfasts (proper bacon)
Sky bar, down near beach, good entertainment on a night time
Royal beach restaurant, open all day, next to beach (burgers and chips 2.95 euro really nice, staff are lovely too)
B&Q hot buffet Chinese (doesn't look much and not a massive variety but food is beautiful all you can eat 8euro)
TFC takeaway open all night (chicken bar)
Subway, right next door to TFC
Gran maison, bit on the posh end but well worth a treat here.
Marios steak house, best sirloin I've eaten!!
All of the above is literally as you step off the complex, 3-4mins walk max!!
Excursion bookings office is on the doors of the complex, English people easy peasy!! Siam park 10mins walk tops!!
I am planning my next return already!!
Thank you soooooo much Rosa we had one of the best holidays we've ever had, the apartment & area is perfect for everything we wanted!! The only thing I would suggest is you update the bathrooms.
TIP; if you are a family of 4 or less just jump in taxi at airport, very easy, very quick and only cost us 26euro on the meter (one way) no need to book taxi for return, taxi rank outside doors to complex has taxis' in from 4am in morning.
The apartment was very welcoming and homely. Spacious and clean. The owner - Rosa was superb with her communications throughout the time from the booking made to time we got home. The owner son hugo was brilliant on helping out. The location was perfect. Lots of bars and the big supermarket was right outside close to the apartment. The pool was fabulous for cooling down when the weather was hot. Beach is about 500 metres from the apartment. Aqualand behind the apartment. If I had to say something which would be added to the apartment it would be to have some English channels on the tv. We will be coming back to stay here again.
Centrally located for everything.. very nice quiet complex. Apartment has everything you need for comfort
