We were booking a last minute getaway to Tenerife - finding a reasonable hotel that wasn't costing a fortune was hard, but I stumbled across this apartment that Barry and Christine owned. After a couple of emails, I booked it. Communications between us and the owners was fantastic.

The apartment is privately owned by Barry and Christine within the Ocean Ponderosa Hotel. Whilst this hasn't got the best reviews on TA, don't let this put you off. Barry and Christine have done a fantastic job of doing up the apartment, and it has literally everything you could possibly need.

When we arrived, we got the key from reception and headed up. Upon entering, we were exceptionally pleased at how clean and tidy the place was. It was absolutely SPOTLESS! There's a proper fridge freezer there as well, which was an absolute god send. The bed, even though its just a double sofa bed, was actually very comfortable and we slept great. (There is a second sofa bed which for us was still a sofa, but can accommodate another two people) The kitchen is fully stocked with any utensils and cooking equipment you may want to use. We didn't use these as we ate out every night anyway, but its good to have them.

There's also a large dressing table (other half was pleased!), a proper ironing board and iron, a safe, and a TV with DVD player. The only English channel we could pick up was BBC World News, but who's on holiday to watch TV?!

The bathroom, again was absolutely spotless. Its fully kitted out with all manner of towels, and has a large mirror also. The shower was absolutely fine, and temperature was no problem.

The balcony overlooks the smaller pool, and has decent seating and a table outside. The balcony door has blackout curtains which were very welcome!

The location of the apartment was absolutely perfect for us, Its situated right in-between Playa De Las Americas and Costa Adaje. We're watersports and outdoor enthusiasts, so we did pretty much all the excursions up at Puerto Colon harbour, including jet-skiing, parasailing, catamaran trip, quad biking, and hired a boat ourselves. For the evenings, we had a choice of either walking up north to the cafes and bars near the harbour, or heading south for the beach front bars of Las Americas. (If you're feeling flush, go to Papagayo Beach Club at sunset and try and grab one of the white leather sofa's outside - absolute heaven) We didn't get a single taxi anywhere. Oh and there's a small supermarket just down the road which will have anything you need.

The hotel was actually very quiet for our whole stay. We could leave the balcony door open during the night to let a nice breeze in. No bother for any neighbours or drunken yobs.

If you're looking for a cheap, spotlessly clean apartment to use as a base, in an excellent location to walk to everything, this is for you. Don't bother with the hotel facilities, go and make your own entertainment and you'll have a great holiday :)

“Nice little apartment”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The apartment was nice and clean when we arrived there, reception at this hotel was very helpful. Hotel also provides buffet service if you choose so. Towels for the beach were provided here which can save you lot of space in your luggage :) reception at this hotel was providing parasol free of charge :) there was nice big fridge/freezer which in hot weather was very useful. Regarding to kitchen equipment it was reasonably good, with few minor things to improve. Owners were willing to help and were really kind and helpful if we needed anything throughout the stay.
