we booked sol1 for a relaxing January break and we did not expect a lot for 2 keys rating but I would say although no luxury our apartment was quiet,clean and comfortable. I had e-mailed for upper room but was allocated on ground floor which was ok as had outside table and chairs, but did notice our neighbour on upper floor struggling with the stairs using a walking stick. All basic equipment is there but no microwave just two rings, kettle and toaster. we had a few maintenance problems, some due to rain I think, but were quickly and pleasantly resolved .We liked the security gate locked in evening and bedroom window had a metal grille. This is a good location just few minutes from seafront .Several small supermarkets nearby and we did not find them expensive. It was not sunbathing weather so we explored the area, walking in Arrecife along the costal path through Matagorda. A plane spotters paradise as you walk past the busy airport runways. Puerto Calero is worth a viisit, small market on Tuesday, excellent breakfasts and lunches, bus 161 stop on seafront and the coastal cliff walk back to Puerto del Carmen brings you to old town at harbour. There is a new board walkway and this has tidied up this area. La bamba restaurant small and inexpensive at top of hill would be a favourite. Coffee and mouthwatering cake at Dos Mil on seafront were excellent. Last minute.com do a trip to Teguise market on Sundays at e4 and are well organised giving about 3 hrs at market which is sufficient. We took local bus no.161 to Playa Blanca (market on Wed) but did find it very crowded on way back as no service siesta time, so maybe wait until later afternoon as not all passengers got on bus. The perfume shops offer good value but do shop around as prices vary. Good value winter break.
