“Clean. Good location and value for money. Needs some updating.”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had a pleasant stay here 13 years ago and wanted to return as it was such a great location. The apartments are now a bit tired and dated but were spotlessly clean and the cleaners came in twice whilst we were there. If you want luxury then don't stay here because you will be disappointed. Equally, if you only want to pay £300 for a week then don't gripe about it. It's quiet. You get free entry to the lido. The view is stunning. The staff are helpful (let us keep our room until the evening at no extra charge) and we would still go back again.

Ok it is not the grandest of complexes, tiles are cracked, the wooden balconies need repainting/re-varnishing, the rooms could do with redecorating but the rates were reasonable and the location was fantastic. The apartments were right at the end of Los Gigantes next to the marina. More restaurants than you can visit; beach one minute away, small supermarket even nearer than that.
This was our third visit. When our booked accommodation fell through a day before departure we booked Poblado Marinero as a place we knew would meet our requirements.

Room Tip: Harbour view rooms are the best.

Some people seem content to spend good money on flights book an indifferent apartment then are not happy. There are a good number of private apartments available with a little investigation and therefore visitors should not be put off by negative comments.

We stayed yet again in the www.losgigantesdirect.com apartment truly high star with every convenience provided. Entering you cannot but appreciate what is given, everything is there with even some english tv/dvd if you can tear yourself from the balcony view of all the activities of the vibrant marina and bars. From breakfast to last thing at night you are able be alfresco to your hearts content.

The parking on the marina is now controlled but with a reasonable price after an initial free period and was designed to allow quieter and safer use of the shops and bars along the front. Elsewhere I have reviewed places and restaurants to visit where I have been honest and accurate to try to dispel some of those views which may have been clouded by events as we all can encounter off days.

Los Gigantes is a place that, if you like it, you return time and time again but should be tried anyway ..... we will return soon.

Room Tip: Go for a good private apartment, it saves money in the end.

We booked this as a "stop gap" between arrival in Tenerife and moving into our rented apartment. It cost us 67 euros for 2 nights which was inexpensive to put it mildly. It was difficult to find and parking nearby is either impossible, or expensive (parking in the Marina). However the reception staff were very helpful and provided an appropriate room (lower level) as a member of our party (me) had a sprained ankle. The room was outdated and in much need of refurb. The lock on the patio doors was akin to a toilet lock so my faith that it would keep out a determined burglar was pretty much non-existent.

We had very noisy neighbours and were woken at goodness knows what time by the refuse carts arriving, followed by a clattering of supermarket shutters being opened. Added to the heat with no aircon.. It didn't make for a good nights' sleep!

The pool however was a revelation. Fantastic views, plenty of sunbeds, great swimming pool + a rock pool for the brave. Great area and we decided if our rented apartment pool area was lacking, we would have come back on a daily basis - even at a 4.50 euro cost for non-guests.

So-So hotel - great pool but doesn't come at a price so worth a go if you are on a budget

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view / Marina view room on a higher floor.

The good:
We went just before the May bank holiday for a week. It was really nice! It was clean (rooms and crockery in kitchen), the views of the cliffs and the marina were fantastic and exciting every time (especially at sunset). The local supermarket was right around the corner. Most restaurants and bars were just up the hill/close by. The staff were extremely helpful (one brought a microwave into our kitchen when we asked - as they aren't equipped with one). Also we were able to book our coach trip to Mt Teide through them.
Did I mention the view? For the price you pay (for a seaview room), you get a large kitchen/diner with a balcony secluded from the neighbouring apartments overlooking the marina and the cliffs (los gigantes) - where we ate our breakfasts and home cooked dinners; also you get a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower over bath.
Although we didn't use it, there is a swimming pool free to guests over the road. Instead we went to the small beach next to us! Which was less busy than the main beaches at playa de la arena.

The bad:
We arrived and there was no-one there to check us in, but we didn't have to wait long. Leaving a simple note would have been helpful.
The rooms are twin bed - although they are easily put together into a double.

Yes, that was all the bad we could think of!

Room Tip: Seaview room costs a little extra, but is brilliant.

We stayed here only because we stayed here 15 years ago. Little appears to have been done to the development in the intervening period. Location is excellent but the apartments are simply not good enough for today's traveller where 2 star does not have to mean rundown and shabby. Clearly the whole development needs significant investment but I guess the owners are not in a position to do this. Will not stay here for a third time.

Room Tip: A marina view apartment is the only reason to stay here.

We stayed here in 2010 when we were transferred at the time of the ash cloud in Iceland. I don't know if it was because we had previously been at a hotel in Costa Adeje, but I really didn't rate these apartments. Okay they are large - but so rundown. There is no pool actually on the complex - you have to cross over the road to get to it, but you have to pay for umbrellas and sun beds. The beach was closed due to the landslide where people had been killed the year before. So no beach at all. Thought it was a strange resort- okay the cliffs looked beautiful but just couldn't take to it. There were cockroaches also in the rooms , my son had to help a young mum get rid of some in her apartment! The furniture was old and the kitchen and bathroom shabby- I suppose it was clean but old and sort of depressing ! The town itself was also nothing to write home about. Frankly I'd spend money elsewhere on the island!
