“Exceptionally good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

I stayed here for a week July 4th - 11th 2014. Having been back home a couple of days, my memory is quite fresh of my feelings toward the apartment complex.

Beautifully clean and tranquil. The staff are incredibly helpful, and genuinely work to make your stay a pleasant one.
My apartment was number 9 and well furnished with all i could possibly need for my stay. Comfortable lounge, kitchen dining area was more than ample size and well stocked with filter coffee jug, toaster and microwave, as well as two hob rings.
The bathroom was spotlessly clean, with loads of towels! Bath and shower, toilet and bidet and sink with large mirror and socket for shaver and a hairdryer,very spacious and well ventilated .
I had a twin bed room, but just pushed the beds together to make a huge double bed..bedroom was large with wardrobe and draws . (the wardrobe was a bit musty smelling so i didnt use it)
I had a veranda/patio at the front, felt private as there are bushes to obscure any views from people that may walk by..very well designed actually, and the bushes were flowering ones, giving a gorgeous scent on the breeze.
My apartment was cleaned twice during my stay, more than enough to my mind.
If you arrive after reception has closed, you can gain access through the gate to the left of the front of the property (just behind the telephone booth)
Quickest way to the shops and sandy beach is, if you walk out of reception turn left and walk about fifty paces youll see a walkway by a bin...just follow it all the way down and youll see the large Spa shop and a crossings that lead to all the shops bars restaurants and the sandy picture perfect beach. (if you carry on straight down the road El Guarapo is on and turn right past the large cafe at the bottom youll be at the rocky beach)
The pool cafe is well priced, and meals are served there too as well as breakfast, there isnt actually any need to go anywhere else, the prices are that good,and staff that fabulous.
Even the wifi is perfect and i used it often to communicate with my son who works on the island and i used it to Skype home , im a bit of a gadget queen so wifi is VERY important to me .I really cant fault the place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Perfectly positioned apartments, very well maintained and an absolute pleasure to stay there.

We had initially booked a superior room, we thought we had booked a two bedroom apartment, however we had sent a few emails to hana on reception to see if we could upgrade but were told they were full. What abit of luck when we arrived a room had become available and Hana had saved it for us , you are a star Hana thank you for your assistance with this matter.

Lovely spacious 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor with an excellent view , beach towels provided which we used a lot, free wi if and free tv. Bottle of wine and water on arrival.
These rooms have a bath and shower in a very spacious bathroom. Cleaners came in every other day and sheets were changed on day 8 , we stayed for two weeks. One double bedroom and one twin room with a sofa bed in the front room.
Very relaxed atmosphere, no rush for the sun beds, everyone staying here seemed very chilled out
Always some spaces no matter what time of day went around the pool. The pool isn't the warmest I've been in, not for the faint hearted!!!!! Once you were in it was ok.
Food At Antonios very good and a very good price., shops only a 5 mins walk as well as all the restaurants
Reception is open everyday but limited hours closed mainly between 1-4pm if you think you are arriving between these times Antonio in the restaurant will have your room number or email the hotel a few days before to get your number.

Rooms 1-21 on the ground floor
rooms 22-42 on the 1st floor
Rooms 43- 50 on the top floor these are all 2 bedrooms

Just returned back from El Guarapo Apartments and have to say we had a brilliant time, this was a last minute booking for us as we weren't going to go anywhere BUT with it being our honeymoon we just had to and the price was brilliant too.
Everyone here was so freindly and polite and couldn't do enough for you.
We had a 2nd floor apartment looking over the pool and we loved it.
5 minute walk into the centre and the beach (beach very windy though), ate out in the square every day and the prices were very reasonable.
Antonio who looked after the bar cafe area was such a sweetheart and went out of his way to please you. Food here freshly cooked and hot all by Antonio.
We will definately be booking to come back here next year with the kids, they will love it :-)

We booked these apartments on a package deal via Cosmos - on arrival we were greeted by reception and given our room keys, our apartments was overlooking the pool on the 1st floor - we paid the upgrade free for this and to also include WIFI and TV - was worth it as only £6pp. The apartments was spacious, very clean and had everything you needed, large balcony (could of done with a couple of sun loungers on there) kitchen with 2 ring hob, microwave, fridge with freezer box and lots of utensils - the only problem we found is that we couldnt use the kettle as it had been cleaned with a detergent and not rinsed - we tried boiling it and rinsing abut 20 times but it still kept frothing.. We didnt have one of the refurbished apartments but still it was nice, no air con - however keeping the rear window open allowed air to flow through the apartment.. Bathroom was great, nice shower .. bedrooms ok - i did ask for more pillows before arrival and on arrival but no were sent.
We didnt use the pool area as i am pregnant and the sun lounger dont recline, they are very basic and they have no paraols around the pool either so not great for families. The pool bar closes between 3pm - 7pm so no afternoon drink, and then closes around 11pm each night - which i find very strange - it was always empty. Recpetion is always closed from about 1pm - 4pm each day so beware if you arrive between these hours.
Our only problem we had was we had to confirm our transfers and the lady on recpetion refused to do it for us as they dont deal with that transfer company?? which i find very odd as we'd booked a cosmos package - she rudely pointed us to the phone box outside - so my one and only customer service experience of the hotel was not very good.
Housekeeping come in on Thurs and Sat - we arrived on a Sat so had to wait 5nights before they came and then they came in on the last 3 days including departure day which made no sense.
The apartments are a short walk from the centre and beach so in easy reach of others places to have that afternoon drink and meal.. I wouldnt recommend for families as its largely older couples on the complex and children jumping in and out of the pool would be frowned upon - also no paraols for them..however if you are a couple and looking for somewhere quiet to chill this place is a nice option - just dont ask reception to confirm your transfers :)

Room Tip: 1st Floor, over looking the pool are worth the additional supplement

After having our flight to the UK cancelled we were put up by the airline for 1 night in hotel and told to sort our own accommodation for the other 3 nights. After the initial panic had passed a friend that I had made on holiday offered to look up places on her phone for me. We were previously staying at an all inclusive hotel not far from here but we were unable to to go back as they were full. Anyway, we booked 3 nights here, VERY friendly and helpful staff!, CLEAN everywhere. The apartment was spacious, Large balcony with table and chairs, good size clothes rack. Lounge, kitchen/dining area, bedroom with twin beds and large bathroom. nice pool with plenty of sun loungers. We were on the first floor which was ok for us. This was room only but there is a brilliant cafe/restaurant run by the amazing Antonio whose meals were cooked fresh and were Delicious. It is only 5 min walk to the small beach and near all the shops and restaurants. What a bonus there was a bottle of water and a bottle of wine in the fridge. they also provided pool towels. The ONLY thing that let it down was the internet wasn't working sso had to go to another hotel to contact family.

Room Tip: All I can say is our apartment faced reception and was on the first floor, good for drying the washi...

Just got back after 10 nights, very clean all round. Nice rooms and a really nice bathroom lovely swimming pool. The staff were friendly and helpful. About five mins walk to the spar shop and the square where there are lots of bars and restaurants. Found a place just up from the spar shop 1-20 euro a pint. breakfast full can be found in many places for 1-99 euro. Went on a fishing trip and the off road buggy trip both great days out. Would we go again Yes!!!

I have stayed here so many times I am surprised we don't pay permanent rent! These apartments are basic, simple but exactly what you need on a self catering holiday. The apartments have either a balcony or terrace, one bedroom, no studios here! The bedrooms have two single beds with new mattresses (May 14) and a fitted wardrobe with plenty of storage for a holiday, the bathrooms are big enough with a shower/bath, the kitchen has a double ring hob, microwave, toaster and kettle, ask if you don't get a kettle or toaster they have spares to give. All the cutlery you need including a bottle opener (most places don't have these!). Anything else you want to know just email me on here and ask, I will reply within 24 hours! We don't stay anywhere else, there is no point. We had a two bedroomed apartment this time for our honeymoon and it had a massive balcony, there is also another balcony on some apartments, we did which we hardly ever used to be fair. The living area is bigger, the bathroom slightly bigger and there are two bedrooms obviously, one the normal with two singles and one with double bed. They are bright and airy with everything you need, don't bother staying anywhere else! These are simply the best in the area! Read my other reviews for any more information.

Room Tip: Ground floor great for access for the elderly or disabled, first floor great for the winter months w...
