Luz y Mar Apartments
Ranked #46 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Reviewed 21 January 2013

Booked a late new year deal for me and my husband and also took my elderly parents. The apartments were initially difficult to find at 9pm in the evening as the restaurant in front of the apts had a tree which covered the name so look out for the kazbar and it is on the right at the end of the reaurants,also look for spar shop it is just up on the right past it. As with other reviews I can confirm that the keys are taped in an envelope with your name on with a map to find your appt strange I know but we were fortunate to have a little english lad show us to our apts. The apts were very basic BUT very spacious. The cleaner came about 5 times in 10 days and the beds were changed once. The apts were clean and the towels were of a reasonable quality not paper thin, hard or ripped. Unfortunately the beds were rock hard on our appt and we only had a sheet and cover on the bed with one very flat pillow. There was a blanket in the wardrobe now although this may be sufficient for the summer months when the nights are warm the nights in the winter months can prove to be very chilly so I recommend a nice warm pair of pj's in your luggage - not very romantic I know but you will be grateful for them if travelling in dec/jan. We did manage to get an extra blanket but was still chilly but no xtra pillows were available.
There was plenty of space in the wardrobe and each room has a safe which was 14 euros for a week with a refund of 6e on return of the key. The kitchen has a double hob, microwave and fridge with small freezer compartment. The tv was a big let down you had to pump euros in to make it work and the only english channel was sky news so would recommend portable dvd player and plenty of films if you have kids if you don't have one see Liam.
The poolbar - Liam in the poolbar was a god send, he was very helpful with local info and my parents wanted a night in one night so he loaned them his dvd player and some films. He has a couple of dvd players which he hires out and has a massive collection of dvd's so go see him.
The poolbar prices are competitive and he offers a friendly warm service.
The apts are in a good location just a 10 min walik to the old town ans about 15 mins to the strip, they are in a very quiet area so no noise late at night or early in the morning. The gtound floor apts look onto the pool area which gets plenty of sun and they are very suitable for people with mobility probs asalthough not fully disabled my dad needs a wheelchair to get around and we had no probs with this.

Having read reviews on the apartments here we went expecting simple accommodation and were pleasantly surprised. The apartments are situated on the edge of the old town within a 10 minute walk to the sea front of the harbour area or 15 minutes to the beach area. The apartment was ground floor fronting the pool and was very spacious. Good clean kitchen and bath, Living room furniture was clean but basic. Bedroom had plenty of storage space but the beds were rock hard!

The pool bar was adequate but opening hours seemed sporadic but this most probably down to us going out of season. The pool was clean but very cold.

Noise wise on the whole quiet accept for one night when the people next door decided to have a blazing argument that went on for a couple of hours.

We were worried about security before going and had read reports on here, of trouble. However the apartments seemed very secure with double lock entry and bars on windows (to keep us in or them out?). A safe is available for 14 euros for the week.

There is a vast array of restaurants and bars some very good and some diabolical! If you like Chinese then try the New World Restaurant nearest the apartment (There are 2 of the same name owned by the same people. The ground floor one being the best by Atlantis Los Lomas) This restaurant caters for both traditional and British Chinese tastes and its food and service are excellent.

For a traditional English Breakfast a walk along the sea front to Maritoni's is well worth it. For 2.5 Euro's a proper breakfast with good bacon & Heinz beans overlooking the sea front. It advertises the best breakfast in town and we didn't find better! Try also to eat here in the evening as the food is excellent. You need to get there early as its soon full and otherwise you will have to wait sometime (although it is well worth the wait)

Overall the Luz Y Mar is a good base of operations and am happy to recommend it.

we took a cheap late break in puerto del carmen and booked this thru monarch v cheap and were happy enough with what we got the apartments are of reasonable standard if very simple, our intention was to get somewhere where we could get out and enjoy a walk in the evening and eat where we want, we've done a few of the half/full board type hols and find it a bit boring. the pool area was fine and the bar was very friendly and welcoming (nice Lady) 2euros a pint what more can you say lol, the reception were not that helpful as we were flying late in the day and wanted to keep the room for a few hours, so we asked as it said just ask on the sign in reception...but the answer was no and when we asked if we could leave our bags there till later the answer was no we close at 1....not that helpful really. The nice lady at the bar offered to look after our bags, which was very kind. taxi from airport 16 euros ish. supermarkets v close for supplies, the spar does very nice fresh baguettes for about a euro to make your own lunch, all in all not to bad and close enough to the main eating and drinking areas (5-10 mins leisurely walk) with some bars closer. the hire car people on the corner near the apartments K.H.Services were very friendly helpful people, would recommend them. dont expect 5 star but yes I would go back so recommended.

I would recommend these apartments for those looking for a cheap and basic break.

The apartament was clean and presentable and we were very happy and would think about staying again. The bedroom did get very warm at night so as someone below said if you close the curtains during the day if can get the place cooler in the evening.

The pool was ok, we did on occasion see a few insects floating in the water. Nice pool bar but never bought anything in it.

My partner and I recently stayed here, we booked it because it was cheap so we weren't expecting too much. We had requested a first floor apartment when booking and got one, number 23. The ground floor apartments have terraces which open straight out into the pool area, which would be handy but we thought it would feel safer and there would be less bugs on the first floor.

The apartment was a decent size but could do with a bit of a spruce up, especially the bathroom. The shower curtain was quite stained and there were bits of rust round the plug hole etc. The corners of the room were a bit grubby and there were some hairs etc on the floors, however the maid came twice during the week and changed the towels and sheets, cleaned the bathroom and the floors.

The pool area was a good size and really quiet with a little pool bar that served drinks and snacks, although we didn't eat anything from it, although someone told us they had a great fry up from it.

The apartments were in a good location, with a few supermarkets and bars and restaurants nearby. It was about a ten minute walk down to the harbour area, where we went in the evenings. Got a taxi back up a few nights after being too full to face the walk up the hill, cost about 3 euro.

In general, the apartments did the job and were great for the money, although could do with a bit of upgrading and a lick of paint.
