Los Cardones
Reviewed 14 October 2012 via mobile

Was very worried when I read a couple of the latest reviews, however with the room we stayed in this wasn't the case. Only downside was the pool wasn't child friendly has people don't like kids jumping around and making noise (think its because its mainly residential ) its probably more suited to couples or family's with older children. But even with this in mind I would definately stay here again couldn't fault the 2 bed bungalow we stayed in. It's close to all the bars and restaurants, and I would highly recommend Montannas restaurant across the road. Overall these bungalows are clean, well equiped and even though there is lots of bars around the complex it is very quite at night. (Could do with air con fitting in the rooms ).

We booked this holiday last minute following our original travel company going bust! So glad we chose this place - it is like a lttle oasis in the centre of Playa de las Americas! It is primarily residential and consists of bungalows with small gardens and a block of studios. We had a studio which was better equipped than a lot of one bedroom apartments we have stayed in. It had a full oven, hob, fridge freezer, micorwave , kettle, toaster and even a washing machine!! (which I had no intention of using while on holiday though). Furniture was basic though clean and functional, great shower and everything immaculately clean! Maid service superb and all staff friendly and very helpful.

Pool area was lovely, plenty of sunbeds no matter what time of day you arrived - the most people we ever saw round the poool was 12, I think this was because it was mainly residential, it was almost like having a private pool.

We were usually back in the apartment by midnight and slept like logs until 8.30 or so in the morning. I can honestley say we were never disturbed by any noise at all.

This complex is perfectly located in the quieter area, but only a few minutes walk from restaurants and beaches. We would definatley recommend this accommodation and will be returning next year ourselves!

My husband and I booked Las Cardones in early March orginally for 6 weeks as we where getting some serious building work done to our house in London and wanted to get away from it. We didn't want to stay in a high rise hotel of a large complex so Las Cardones sounded ideal. When we got there it proved to be the right choice.The one bedroom bungalow we were allocated had everything we needed and it was bright and spacious with a large patio overlooking the very busy area in the heart of Las Americas. This suited us fine as we could sit and watch the world go by whilst having our meals or in the evening having a drink on the patio when not going out to any of the great pubs of restaurants at the Patch area. This complex is like a small hamlet made up of owner/occupiers and private/company lets to holidays makers which makes for a lovely maintained gardens,pool and walkways to all the accommodations. The gardener and handy man work hard to keep it that way. The location is great just a short walk to the beach and shops.Turn left to Los Cristianos for family bars and restaurants or right left for young filled bars or clubs. Due to building delays at home we had to extent our stay for another few weeks. Our request for this was handled seamlessly by the Manager Mr Fabrizio M. who through out our stay was efficient and extremely helpful nothing was to much trouble as were all the staff. The interior of the rental accommodation needs updating but before we left to come home work had already started to accomplish this. The Manager showed us round one of the finished bungalows and the difference was amazing it was very chic and modern. He said it was the Los Cardones of the future.The 1st people to stay there should consider themselves very lucky. We would certainly recommend Los Cardones to family and friends and are considering going back ourselves later in the year possibly with some of our grand children.

Stayed here for the first time 2 weeks in march. Unbelievable peaceful place in the middle of everything. Excellent service from the Italian guy who manage the complex. Good daily cleaning staff. Great bungalow accommodation with pool view terrace plenty of sun. Beware the sun and bring always with you high protection sun cream. Ask for free pool towels at the reception. Hopefully will be back next year.
Thanks

Room Tip: overlooking the pool or private garden bungalow are the best

Stayed for 4 nights in mid March. Arrived to find a very rude receptionist. As soon as he realised we were in a group of 8 made it very plain that we were about as welcome to him as the ants and cockroaches were to us!! We had two apartments between us and as soon as we walked in the smell of damp and mould was apparant. In room 6B there was even an open sewage drain which stank. We asked to be moved to be told we would have to move to the other side of the resort. We decided to put up and shut up as we were only there for 4 days. However, within 24 hours every single member of our group had horrible chest and respiritory problems. By the end of the holiday all of us were really sick and it has taken 3 weeks to properly recover and we are normally very healthy and fit. Any one staying here be very careful if you do happen to stay in rooms 5 and 6B. I wouldnt normally write a negative view as each to their own but I do feel the fact that all 8 of us ended up with exactly the same symptoms points to the mould in the rooms. Also it would help if the company letting the apartments made it very clear that this is a very quiet complex and that groups are not welcome!!

The hotel is in a very good location - one block from the beach and one block from the main shopping area. Even though Reception closes at 6pm, when we arrived at 8.30pm the receptionist had returned to check us in! - really excellent service.
The pool area is spacious and very quiet & we were given pool towels.
Each room is very well equipped with Hob & oven, Microwave, and washing machine. There are several good supermarkets just at the front gate and an excellent one about 5 minutes walk away.
We stayed in 16D and it was very comfortable if a little tired and dark, and in need of a re-paint. We stayed mid-March and the first night was a little cold - but there were spare blankets - but no heating in the bungalow.
Each bungalow/room has it's own water heater and you need to allow 30 minutes between showers for the water to reheat!
Cockroaches seem to be a general problem - each room is provided with a spray can and it is definitely needed in the bungalows.
