As a first time visitor to the Canaries, I booked an apartment online based on photos and price. It is definitely in a great location in terms of walking distance to amenities and beach, and there is no doubt that it was cheap at €170/wk, but I wished I'd read reviews and paid a little more. The complex looked run-down from the main entrance (reception, bar, cafe, etc all closed down), and we made our way to the apartment itself, this became even clearer, as there were numerous broken tiles around the poolside. The apartment could have been pleasant with a little effort, but was dirty throughout, minimally furnished, and don't even ask me to describe the smell from the fridge. As we made our way out one evening, a neighbour told us that we ought to have closed our curtains as there had been a spate of break-ins. This, coupled with the fact that we could hear crying and fighting from a neighbouring apartment at night, did not make us feel safe there. We stayed out of the apartment as much as possible, and didn't make much use of the pool either as many of the sunloungers were broken.
