LABRANDA El Dorado
Ranked #38 of 91 Hotels in Puerto Del Carmen
Reviewed 1 April 2008

We're just back from a weeks stay at the El Dorado apts and like most of the other reviewers we couldn't fault the place at all. They are in an ideal location between the old and new town, surrounded by lovely restaurants and pubs. The shopping centre Biosphera is right across the road....perfect for spending an hour or two if the weather isn't great. There is a fabulous Indian just beside the shopping centre that I 'd recommend...we ate there twice!!

Our apt was big with a large dble room, large bathroom and kitchen/ living room. It was spotless. The bathroom was huge and had a great shower with hot water available all the time. The towels were changed quite regularly too. The kitchen was well equipped, perfect if you wanted to cook.

The pool and pool bar were busy every day but we went down to the beach so didn't use either. The beach is only a 5 minute walk.
The staff were friendly and helpful.

We will definitely be going back and I would recommend the El Dorado to anyone.

We stayed in El Dorado for two weeks in November.Great location beside old Town-with its excellent restaurants by the harbour.Good Irish bars-music ,singing,and dancing-The Blarney Stone opposite Taxi rank.Great hosts Johnny Crowley and Josie.
I agree with other reviews on apartments.We could have done with a brush and dustpan and a kettle.There was a great sea view from balcony which was a good size for sun bathing.The only downside I found with apartments -our bedroom faced a very busy road and there was traffic all night.I had to buy ear plugs when I could not sleep.If you are not used to traffic ask for appartment away from noise.I love Purto del Carmen-Old Town.

Stayed: November 2007

We booked this place on the recommendation of other reviews. The place it self is in a superb location. Nearer to the old town than the "newer" bit. The outside area (pool, bar, reception etc) are all imaculately clean. However, the insides of the apartments are looking tired and are a little scruffy. The settee in the lounge area was black with dust and dirt. The bathroom was clean but very old. The beds where extremely noisy as the springs where coming through. The rooms really should be supplied with a brush and dust pan as there where bits on the floor constantly. There wasnt much noise overall, due to the time of year, apart from a group of people who sang everynight when they got home @ 4am. I think the location of the place saves it. You can walk in either direction and be there in 5 mins. Beward it is quite hilly. You must eat at La Cascada Puerto. Superb and well priced.

Just returned from a week at El Dorado.
Really pleasant lady on reception on arrival who provided us with a second pass key on request (small deposit). The site seems quite secure as they only way in or out is through the main entrance and at night this is locked with the key card which also unlocks your front door.
There were five of us in what they call a bungalow which was quite spacious with a good balcony over looking the pool and the sea beyond. Good showers.
The gardens are kept immaculate and have been carefully planted for interest and variety.
Two pools one of which is heated which was needed at this time of year. Plenty of room around the pool and lots of loungers and parasols.
Location - excellent, right next to the old town but still really quiet.
Parking - plenty on the street outside
One small negative - the man on reception at night is a bit grumpy

these apartments have to one of the best in the puerto del carmen strip ,. they are at the begining of the old strip , directly opposite the shopping centre and at the begining of the new town with 2minute walk to the beach and main activities, by day they are quite and clean giving you the impression you are in a very quite area and the centre is right outside the door.

however the apartments have clean tiled throughout with a large balcony on rooms 113-116 overlooking pool 1 , where as pool 2 is for the childrens section with a pool bar { very dear } however the super market is 1 minute walk away.

i found theses better than the fariones or the corina mar apartments , they may not be on the beach but if you have no walking difficulties there perfect and a couple of hundred cheaper .

had a ball would highly reccommend for couples .

We have just returned from a week at the Eldorado Apartments. We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was spotless, a really high standard. We had a reasonably spacious twin bed room, a nice size bathroom with two sinks, bath/shower and the living space / kitchen had a couch, armchair, table and chairs, fridge freezer, oven and hob and everything you'd need in the cupboards. We had a beautful sea view and balcony as well.
The hotel staff were a bit grumpy, but the couple that run the pool bar are absoutely lovely.
It's a great complex, the pools and bar are clean and tidy (there could perhaps have been more loungers!). The location is brilliant for the new and old town. Definitely a good place to stay.
Go to eat in La Cascada in the old town - it's fabulous and very well priced. Don't be put off if there's a queue, the longest we waited was 10 minutes.
