My partner and i stayed in an apartment that all the locals knew as PM1-15, it was a long let, we know why every one knows it, building works on a Medical clinic on the lower floor woke us up at 7:30 am every week day, albeit the work as virtually stopped now, after enduring 4 months of that we got the neighbours from hell up above us, i know complexs are well known for noise even with the silencio notices as you come in to the building, which really make no difference at all, we have suffered with unwanted noise of high heels, people moving furniture backwards and forwards day in day out and heavy feet walking across the floor and banging of a hammer on bathroom walls and bedroom and doors and drawers being slammed as well as the basurra outside taking a slamming, we complained but as usual nothing was done about it, we found it an unwelcoming place, if you want a bit of quiet, dont come here !

Room Tip: Dont bother !

We had a penthouse apartment that we rented from Royal Apartments that are based in London. The apartment was clean and spacious with magnificent views from the balcony over Los Cristianos. The only downside was the size of the hot water boiler that made it impossible to part fill a bath, we brought this to the attention of Royal Apartments who promised to investigate the issue. Access is easy to the shopping complex in the Apollo Centre with its supermarket, bars and restaurants; there is also an excellent Bakers that has fresh bread every morning and they make great sandwiches for the return flight. Overall please discount the previous negative reviews this is a nice well managed complex with cleaners out and about nearly everyday.

Room Tip: Good central location next to bus station

Try and get an apartment overlooking the pool as these have better views but the sun in the morning. The ones at the back overlook the bus station but there is a little park in front so not as bad as it sounds. If you go out of the back of the hotel on floor 0 you can get into the back street on the flat (rather steep ramps at the front and my mobility scooter struggled a bit). This street at the back has a supermarket on the left which will supply with all that you need. Just up the steps opposite the hotel, on the left, is a lovely bar called La Terrasse. Only opened early 2013 and the couple, from Paris, have the food spot on. Good prices too, 922 79 4427. Veronique and her Husband speak excellent English and you really must try this bar - the salads look too good to eat! Just past La Terrasse, go though the archway and on the right is "active" which supplies mobility scooters etc. tel 0034922789707, Derek is very helpful.
Loungers around the pool cost 2 euros a day but we had mats in our apartment that fitted on the top nicely. We liked the fact that some things had been left in the flat for our use - olive oil, hairspray etc but could not comment on all apartments as they are owned by different people.

Room Tip: The higher you go - 4 and above - get better views so even if you overlook the bus station you can s...

We stayed at san marino appts 3rd Oct 2011 for 2 weeks.Lovely appts very well situated but unfortunatley we had lots of cockroaches.They were everywhere in the kitchen and bathroom and no amount of spray would get rid of them,we must have seen around 50 or 60.In the end we moved appt so that the original appt could be fumigated,but we still had a few cockroaches in the new appt. there were also lots of cockroaches in the area around the appts.Anyone else had similar problems here?

we stayed in a privately owned studio apartment on the fourth floor where we got the evening sun from 5pm till 7pm.There is always plenty of space at the pool as sunbeds are 2 euros. .Lovely warm pools open from 10am till 6pm with lifeguard on duty,and the whole area kept very clean.Complex is right beside bus station, supermarket, bakery, restaurants and church.Perfect relaxing place for the older traveller.

Room Tip: rooms with pool view are quiet and away from bus station.

I have stayed here twice four years apart, and the Brits-abroad aspects make me laugh.
We turned up after the reception had closed and encountered a friendly but non-English speaking security guard before eventually picking up our keys - in the pub.
I meant to pop in for a few Doradas the following evening but the outdoor tables were all taken with middle-aged Brits listening to a karaoke rendition of Diana Ross from within.
The second-floor apartment was spacious and airy with double bedroom, kitchen, living room with TV and a balcony.
Getting your own pad, complete with mop in the bathroom, is none too shabby for just over a hundred quid for two nights.
The boozer and a couple of restaurants next door are available if you need them, but you're spoilt for choice in this corner of Tenerife, whether you like karaoke bars or fine dining.
There was no hot water but we didn't complain because we didn't really need it - I went swimming at the 50metre pool down the road every day and showered at the beach.
The room also did not have air conditioning or a fan, but the way the apartment keeps cool and overheating wasn't a problem if you make sure to air it before bed.
It's a 10minute saunter down to the coast and a little longer to Tenerife's largest and sandiest beach Playa de la Vistas.
In fact, it's all an easy walk or cab ride away.
Highly recommended, pub 'n' all.

Stayed in a privately owned one bed apartment. Fairly quiet by poolside, therefore easy to get beds. Various restaurants behind apartments, all doing great meals at very good prices - 3 courses for ten euro. Also a very large supermarket behind complex, selling anything and everything.
About ten minute walk to beach, pleasant stroll passing plenty of shops, bars and restaurants.
No poolside bar at San Marino. It closed last year. This didn't bother us as we bought our own drinks out from apartment and went to a restaurant at lunchtime as it was so cheap.
A very enjoyable holiday. Perfect location for a quiet break but near enough all the bars, shops etc if you want it!
