We go to La Cumbre every year and this year we were pleased to see the planted areas looking so much better with new plants and an array of color, also the repainting of the outside of the apartments which really made the whole complex look more up to date.
All the team on the complex work really hard and it was again spotless in all areas and any problems whilst there are always sorted out quickly and efficiently. Fanny on reception is great there is nothing to much trouble for her, to help and advise travelers who may not have visited the island before. Also Anne is on hand to help and advise you to get the best out of your holiday and to enjoy your time at La Cumbre.
If you like a smaller complex then give La Cumbre a try its location is close to the old town with a small beach 10 minutes walk, the main strip with the 6 k beach is again about 10-15 min walk with a bit of a hill walking back from both of these but a slow stroll soon has you back at base, and the best bit for shopping the Biosphera a 2 min walk across the road from the complex with a Spar supermarket for all your needs and the best bit the fresh hot bread sticks and rolls made several times a day. 1 tip take coffee & T bags with you as quite expensive on island.
Having read some of the reviews The Bar is and always has been a POOL BAR offering a good range of snacks to light lunches and BBQ evenings as well as meal deals Stephen coped very well considering Caroline was in hospital in the UK and was very amenable and helpful to all the visitors choices of food and even delivered lunches to the apartments.
Do NOT expect it to be a 5 star restaurant there are plenty of choices on the strip and on the old harbor overlooking the sea. For a great breakfast try the Cantina on the strip for "2.50 Euro" Large full breakfast including chips toast marmalade orange juice and tea or coffee this place has kept its price for the last few years is always popular and opens at 10.30 and so a great brunch that sets you up till tea time well worth the money.
Take plenty of sun creams as they are pricey on the Island good ones are P20 or Calypso both are once a day application & waterproof even after a swim giving all day protection even on cloudy windy days YOU WILL still burn.
Trips Teguise sunday market is great remember to haggle and at a bargain price of 4 Euro on coach Playa Blanca Marina market also a great day out.
Use the water taxi from the harbor for the Puerta Calero Market small but worth a visit. All details can be obtained from reception.
