“Excellent 3 star apartments”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Overall these apartments are excellent.
Check-in was extremely fast & friendly.
The studio (pool view) was a good size with a ceiling fan directly over the bed which was pretty effective.
The pool are & bar are really nice and were pretty quiet for July.
Breakfast was very good - served from 8.30 - 10.30 a.m. so we didn't have to get up too early.
Location is pretty good - a few mins walk to Las Vistas beach (downhill so it's a bit of a climb back up) and close to plenty of restaurants & bars.
Wifi is available in the games room for free and at a cost elsewhere in the hotel.
The hotel has a self-service laundry room - very handy for anybody on a long stay.
My only problem with this hotel was the lack of proper facilities after check-out. A courtesy room isn't offered and there was no option to keep the room for a few hours, even at a charge. There is a shower area close to the pool - it's perfectly clean but there's no lock on the door. Probably not an issue for some but I didn't like it.
Having said that, I would recommend Mar Ola. I would certainly return. It's excellent value.
There's a bus stop right outside the door (and across the road) so, whichever direction you're heading, you don't have far to walk to a bus stop.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms definitely. The hotel is on a busy main road and even from the pool view rooms ther...

We stayed in a room on the 3rd floor. We didn't get any fizz on arrival which disappointed me but only because we'd read others had this!

The room was spotless and kept so throughout the week by the fantastic maids. The people on reception were friendly but we found their real worth when we encountered a problem (son's phone stolen on 'the strip') as they helped us to make contact and let us use the reception phone.

We had a few problems in our room, if we used one of the sockets in the room it blew the fuse box, we reported this the first day and were told how to get the power working again but it wasn't fixed.
We had a problem with the safe and we did get an engineer out to this but he fiddled with it, told us it was working and stalked out without even listening to what the problem was! Needless to say we had the same problem the next day and didn't bother to report it again.
We also reported the hairdryer as not working which as the ladies will know is a nightmare when you're standing there with soaking wet hair. Reception said they'd get the engineer out the next day.
I discovered by chance you have you have the bathroom light on for the hairdryer to work... reception didn't tell us this!

Apart from these minor niggles we had a fantastic holiday and loved the apartment.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool was lovely.

Had such a lovely stay at this hotel! All the staff were very very very friendly and helpful! Loved Carlos! We received some fizz on arrival and there were different sweets in reception everyday and flavoured water. The pool area is lovely and relaxing, the rooms are spacious and clean.. the beds are very comfortable! The maids came and they were very friendly! It's about 10 min walk to the strip and about 5 min to the beach! Will definitely be back next year! :) xxx

I stayed here for a week with my two daughters sept 13 . Chose it because of the excellent reviews and it certainly didn't disappoint . I would recommend booking a one bedroom apartment as we had one overlooking the pool with a massive balcony . The rooms have everything you need - kettle toaster microwave hair dryer , the balcony even had two sunloungers ( with mattresses) plus the usual table and chairs . No air conditioning but a ceiling fan in the bedroom . They even supplied washing up liquid . Very clean throughout , no cockroaches all week ! The pool was lovely , no problem getting a sunbed and very peaceful . No entertainment but plenty to do outside . Happy hour each day and the snacks etc were good value and tasty . Free wi fi in the games room , could just about get it from the edge of the bar area if positioned right ! We even had a bowl of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine left in our room half way through the week , a lovely touch . Safe in the room , small deposit which you get back and the hire was cheaper than I've paid before . Good location , small shop next door if you want to grab a nice cream or cold drinks etc but just around the corner there is a big mercadona . 10 mins from the beach ( depending how fast you walk) down steep steps - killer on the way back . Loads of restaurants and bars to chose from for every taste . It was a fab holiday , highly recommend this place , very friendly and helpful staff and a real find ! Going back again this year but stopping next door in the marola portosin so I'll be adding my review in my return ! Hope it equals mar ola park !

We have stayed here for the last 3 years and each time better than the last! Staff are friendly espically the reception, apartments are clean and spacious, we have stayed in one bedroom with 3 people although it can sleep 4 and fantastic! rooms are cleaned and towels changed daily expect Wednesday and Sunday! Pool towels are provided, never eaten at the hotel but heard from others that is good especially the breakfast, pool area is great open from 9 am until 9pm plenty are sun loungers, quiet hotel in a brilliant location, 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants would recommend eating at Restaurante Amina in the vista sur fantastic food, staff, setting and management, there is also a great cafe near mercadona supermarket called vida la vida for breakfast and lunch type meals all in all a fantastic stay and will Deffo be returning for a 4th time

We stayed here in july 2014. The review by ACole1406 sums it up nicely. The front desk staff is very knowledgable and friendly. We visited the capital by bus and los christianos is only 15 minute walk and has some very nice old streets with shopping. Plenty of restaurants in the area. Use trip advisor to find many good ones. All in all, we would come here again without a doubt!

We went to the Mar Ola Park apartments in Playa de las Americas from the end of June 2014 for a week.
We arrived around 10pm and were met by the receptionist- who was very polite and helpful and also gave us each a glass of wine as a welcome!
Our room was on the 3rd floor but there is a lift. We chose the one bed apartment and the balcony faced the pool not the main road. The bedroom was at the front but the windows had two lots of double glazing to block out the noise. The studios are to one side and their balcony faces the front road.
The whole apartment was exceptionally clean and the facilities were great- fully stocked for kitchen equipment and crockery- no oven though just a hob and microwave. The sofa turned into another bed if you needed it and the service included bath towels and sunbed towels- so you don't need to pack any!
There is a TV with various satellite channels and a room safe.
There is no air conditioning but the bedroom does have a ceiling fan.
The apartment was cleaned every day and there was a full towel and sheet change at least once in a week.
Downstairs the pool is on a terraced area with lots of sunbeds- also cleaned each day!- and a small food bar. The hotel complex has wifi in the main lounge although you can pay to have access in your room. There is even a laundry available to guests.
It is easy to walk into the main shopping complex and beach from the apartment- less than 15 minutes strolling (along the road rather than tackling vertical steps!) and around the corner to the left from the hotel is a large and very reasonable subterranean supermarket. There are lots of local restaurants if you don't fancy venturing too far as well.
Buses stop outside the hotel and are very frequent if you want to explore elsewhere
All in all for a lazy holiday this was a very good venue and we would use it again.

Room Tip: avoid the studios- the apartments with at least one room all had balconies facing the pool which is...
