Reviewed 21 September 2010

We've stayed here quite a few times and will go back again. The location is great as it's close to the bars and restaurants of Matagorda if you fancy a quiet night. It's only 5 minutes in a taxi to the main centre of Puerto del Carmen for a more lively night. Taxis are cheap and easy to come by either at the rank at the top of the road or there's always a good flow of taxis taking a shortcut through the Sol next door to get to the rank. The rooms and the pool are absolutely spotless. I've never seen so much as an ant in the rooms which is strange in a ground floor room in a hot climate. Rafa(the owner) is obsessively clean with the pool and the grounds and the cleaning lady is excellent. She always left our room to last as we were usually nursing a hangover ha ha. The pool bar serves snacks and sandwiches so don't expect to get a dinner there. there's plenty of lovely restaurants nearby including the Kinsale(a definate recommendation). It's very quiet during the day and makes for a really relaxing stay.

Arrived late at night and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful , even called over to check we were okay about 30 mins after we checked in - nice touch & set the scene perfectly.

The accomodation is basic enough but we got a good deal so no complaints...pool area was nice but was a bit cold in Jan to go swimming! Bar area was small but everyone seemed friendly. Sat there fir over an hour though one day listening to the Sunway rep trying to push stuff on us but I suppose that's their job.

Location is great because you can walk over to the commercial centre where there are some great pubs ~& restaurants and a few shops too or just head down to the promenade where you can walk over to Puerto Del Carmen or head in the opposite direction to go to Arrecife (lovely walk and you go along the perimeter fence of the airport too!)

All in all, we had a great time here - nice and quiet at night time and felt very safe as a complex plus there are always taxis available at the large hotel opposite the complex. Definately would recommend it!

This is a small ground floor block of only 24 bungalows. Most are one bedroom but I think there are some 2 beds. Most apartments in the area are basic but these are spotlessly cleaned by a lady called Agnes. Small kitchen but well equipped with touch button ceramic 2 ring hob, fridge and sufficient utensils etc. Lily, the manager of the complex, is very friendly and efficient and nothing is too much trouble if you need anything. Eli runs the pool bar (about 11 til 6, but times vary depending on the amount of use) and her husband Raphael does the cleaning and maintainence. All are very nice and friendly. Thursday night is barbeque night (if they get enough numbers) and recommended - we had great fun and got to know a lot of people on the complex without them invading our private space. Eli and Raphael gave us demonstrations of salsa and flamenco dancing etc. There is one bungalow which is adapted for disabled persons but quite narrow for turning a large wheelchair or mobility scooter. All in all I would have to recommend these bungalows - couldn't fault a thing.

We were recommended to stay here by our friends Rod & Lynne and were very impressed by the place. Everything was very clean and the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The location is excellent being very flat making it ideal for people who like to walk. The beach is only a few hundred yards away. With the Spar supermarket also being very near. We are looking forward to returning next year and would highly reccommend these apartments for any one who wants a very quite and relaxing time.

Just returned from our 2nd visit this year & have not been disappointed. A very relaxed holiday in this quiet location. Peaceful lazy days & perfectly quiet nights so no problem sleeping. Happy smiling staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Great food from Ellie at the pool bar again & the island has improved it's bus services this summer which is an added bonus if you don't want to hire a car. Will be back next year & can't wait!
