“Great apartments but resort disappointing”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Nice modern apartments, staff very good, great pool area.
Rooms showing a little wear but at the price great value for money.
Go for a luxury room if you can as they are so much better having a large balcony with table and chairs and also two sun beds.
All staff are friendly and extremely helpful, my only criticism would be that the cleanliness of the rooms could improve a little as we found hairs/dust on the spare bed and on some plates but these are just little things that can be overlooked.
As for the area it is in a great place away from the disappointing VERY commercial main area with its naff bars and shops...
If you want great apartments by the marina as a base or to just chill then this is the place for you.
Also check out the Italian " Italian flag outside" on the first floor of the small commercial area at the rear of the apartments, this place is exceptional value for money and the food is fantastic quality.

We stayed here for a week in June and had a lovely time.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially the young lady on reception with the blonde hair (sorry we didn't catch your name).
Everything was very clean and the rooms very comfortable. Just a couple of things that maybe could be looked at, one is the slated effect doors in the bedroom and bathroom. It doesn't give much privacy and the other is the sunbeds by the pool, they are not very comfortable. We brought a lilo in the shop to lay on which made them easier on the back but I would recommend the four poster sunbed on the upper level they were lovely.
Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in a lovely friendly clean hotel.

We (couple of 24year olds) stayed for 11 nights mid to end of June.

Upon arrival the reception staff could not have been more helpful, we arrived earlier than check in time but our rooms was ready and waiting. First impressions were fantastic views, spotless spacious, modern apartment and very peaceful!

We chose a room with a balcony as opposed to a terrace, it appears room with terraces aren't quite as private but have easy access to the pool - simply personal preference,

Amazing views from the pool right overlooking the harbour - with the poolbar open all day (2 wines for 4euro between 12:00-.13:00 and 16:30-17:30 with a free tapa was definitely taken advantage of! - other drinks were also available. The restaurant at the pool bar serves great food in the afternoons; I definitely recommend the 'made in spain burger!'.

Yes, there are lots of steps down to the road - 200 counted but it is well worth it to be away from the hustle and bustle of the centre. Towards the bottom of the stairs there is a little pathway which leads to nearer restaurants instead of walking into town and a great supermarket. Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from with great variety - the 'beach club' at the beginning of the walk to Amadores Beach is amazing!

Staff were amazing at all times, our boarding passes were printed for us at reception and a 'courtesy room' offered for our late check out which meant not paying for a late check out - a simple room with shower; all that was required!

Couldn't thank the place enough for all the help which made our holiday completely relaxed and effortless. The only minor issue is the bed - as a couple used to a double bed - the beds in the room are two singles push together which, when rolling over in the night, often meant being wedged between the two, but that is really the only negative about the whole place!

We will be back in august without a doubt!!!
Thankyou so much Marina Bayview!

The hotel is situated in amazing location overlooking the port and beautiful outdoor reception. Every room has a lovely terrace with table and chairs. Amazing breakfast, lovely pool, very clean and lovely furnished. Amazing shower ( perfect for couples :-P ), close to the main beach and the Amadores beach which is short beautiful walk away. Very friendly and helpful staff. They catered for every need. On my birthday I came back to tasty chocolate cake and a birthday card. The only disadvantage for some people could be a lot of stairs - over 120. We loved it though; exercise done for the day :) Highly recommended for couples and families.

Room Tip: the closer to the reception the wi-fi is better. For the best access to the pool choose the bottom f...

Myself and my husband came to stay for 9 days mid May 2014 and we couldn't have asked for anything better. The weather was scorching and although it was officially mid 20's it felt far hotter and without realising we burnt on the first day... Learnt our lesson quickly ha! The apartments were lovely and clean and well maintained. Our electricity tripped out one evening and the handyman came within 5 minutes to sort it out for us. The beds were slightly uncomfortable as they have a plastic mattress protector on them and it got very warm at night. I ended up sleeping on top of the covers. The kitchen was well equipped for what we needed. The balcony was lovely and the views simply stunning!

The pool area was clean and tidy and only really seemed to be particularly busy at weekends. The pool bar was reasonably priced and the food was nice. Reception is quirky and well staffed. All staff were friendly and helpful. We asked for a late check out as we had a late flight and for 50 euros we got one.

The area of Puerto Rico is by far the best of all the Canary Island ones I have visited before. The steps are hard work but by no means put you off the apartments. In fact I have just re-booked for next year in April for my 40th Birthday!
