“Good location”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

We stayed here for 6 nights.
Tha apartment is very basic.
The location is good. Close enough to the strip. The lady at the pool bar is very nice but the food is a little expensive. Poor communication between staff. Renovations going on every day!! Not what you want when you're on holiday. Free wifi available only in the reception area.
Plenty of break ins in this complex. Two of our party were broken into during our stay. No security here. Don't think I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Get a top room although you might still be broken into

Plaza Azul is about 3 minute walk to the main strip of PDC with lots of restaurants and bars and, of course, the beach. There is a slight hill but not as bad as the one in the Old Town (Cardiac Hill)! It takes 15-20 minutes to get to the Old Town (harbour) by walking.

Rooms: basic and look dated but then so does most accommodation in PDC from my experience. Room was clean and plenty of storage. I was there for 5 days and my bed linen was changed half-way through.

Kitchen: well stocked with pots, pans, utensils etc.

TV in sitting room - small but had lots of channels (English news stations and otherwise mainly German, French and Spanish).

Bathroom: shower head is in bath - it's unmovable so if you're short (like me) the water can be only warm by the time it gets to you! Towels were changed once during my stay but that wasn't a problem as I had two sets anyway (due to single occupancy).

Pool: Large pool with a very small children's pool. Limited area around the pool for sun-loungers but plenty of sun-loungers (even though many people had their towels on them and never showed up at all... my pet hate!)

Staff: All the staff were great, very welcoming and obliging from the reception, cleaning and maintenance staff.

I prefer to stay nearer to the Old Town but it was still very accessible from Plaza Azul - I would stay here again.

We travelled as a group of 10 friends for a weeks stay, the location is great and just far enough from the main strip. For what you pay here you cant really complain, the apartment we had was in need of a facelift but was functional and had everything we needed.
The staff are really friendly and helpful in particular the lady at the pool bar.
The pool is nicely located in the centre and the usual types reserving sunbeds try it on but there's a notice saying this isn't allowed so just chuck their towels to one side if they are not there!
There are loads of bars at the bottom of the hill , you just cant go wrong for food and drinks.
One in particular called Nicos is on the right as you go down and its excellent.
If you stay at the Plaza Azul you are not expecting luxury but just clean basic accommodation and this is exactly what you get.
Theres a small bar area and shop on the complex with a larger supermarket 5 minutes walk away.
Old town 10 minutes walk, large beer average 1.50 euro in day, breakfast 2.50 euro average, Eat at Cafe Ola and go there at night - really cool bar !, Eat at Nicos (excellent)
Save room in the case for cheap spirits and aftershaves.
Perfect promenade for cycling and walking
20 mins from Airport
Our friends said they would stay there again for a cheap week in PDC.
Good points:
Great value, Clean, friendly staff, good location
Not so good:
No wifi outside reception (essential these days), Room a bit tired and needed upgrading,

Room Tip: Try for B block upstairs you have a great view

Loved this place. Apartments are basic enough but very clean. All look over the pool area which is lovely. Pool and area surrounding is lovely and clean. Pool bar is great for snacks and cocktails! :) A great supermarket is just across the road and very reasonable. Only a 5 minute walk to the main promenade which has loads of restaurants and bars to choose from. The island bar is a must!! Going back in August and cant wait! :) x

Clean and tidy.. with a pool and a poolside bar, what more could you want for a little over £50 for 4 nights (based on two sharing).
The pool wasn't busy when we went in May and there was no need to reserve loungers.
Real close to the strip and the best beach in Puerto del Carmen, as well as to the coach stop for excursions. The walk is only around 5 minutes.
Hotel is well served by transfer buses, e.g. resorthoppa.
English football available on the big screen in the bar.
There's a mini-convenience store on-site, although this may close earlier than other minimarts on the street.
Free wifi is only available in the reception area, but hey, you're on holiday!
Staff friendly and helpful, and even allowed us use of their shower (and towel) after we'd checked out, after visiting the beach on our last day.

Room Tip: Email through to reception to make your request and they'll do the best they can. I got a reply...

We went the the Plaza Azul for 12 days in April and enjoyed ourselves so much that we are going back in August. We had a first floor room where the balcony was like a suntrap. All the staff were very friendly. Bars, restaurants, beach only a short walk away. Excellent value for money.
