I had a pleasant stay here. I must admit I was a bit anxious after reading some of the reviews but all in all I dont have any complaints. Now it isn't 5 star it isn't modern but like staying at your great grandma's house, well used but very clean. I am a bit of a clean freak so went around wiping the tables, sides, drawers, tv etc and not a piece of dust/dirt was on my white wipe. You get what you pay for and the appartment don't make your holiday YOU make the best out of your holiday!) If your going to spend alot of time here and you want modern luxury then this is not for. On arrival the receptionist was welcoming and helpful. 2 of us stayed in a ground floor studio by the pool. We just had to open our door and the pool was there. Our terrace had no scenic view but that didnt matter as it was private and a sun trap when the sun was out. Equipped with 2 sun loungers, table and 2 chairs, clothes airer mop, brush and shoval. Don't ĺknow if that was for us or if the cleaner's leave it there, but that was useful as I needed to use the brush to sweep up the beads I dropped. The other 2 of our party stayed in a 1st floor 1 bedroom apartment with a balcony with a stunning palm trees and distant sea view. We came on a Saturday and the cleaner came the Tuesday morning. We still have 4 days left and they come twice a week. If you want to watch tv its 10 euros for the remote. If you want wifi its expensive but you can split the cost or pay for less days with someone. 27 euros for 7 days for 2 devices tho not the best and you can't get UK TV but you can get netflix but if you need it desperately it's available. Your own data reception isn't that great hear neither runs a bit slow. PWe came on a Saturday and the cleaner came the Tuesday morning. They come twice a week. We still have 4 days left so will finish the review fully at the en with pictures to follow. I will just say the shops are approximately 25 minutes walk. We have a hire car but there is a free bus that runs 3 times a day to the town/beach.

Starting with the positives staff could not have been more helpful. We checked in to a ground floor apartment in block 9, spacious apartment with good kitchen area and clean enough. This was a cheap holiday so didn’t expect 5 star facilities. Now to the negatives, apartment dark, not even a lamp to help with lighting, broken furniture, drawers in bedroom warped and bowed and smelled of pee. Pillows and bedding grey. Bathroom smelled damp and mouldy. Smell of cigarette smoke coming from apartment above. Cleaning twice out of 7 days. Cannot understand how Tui can rate this complex 3 star. Perhaps we were unlucky with our apartment. Have stayed several times in CT at various apartments and hotels and this is barely 2 star in my opinion. You get very little for your money as WiFi is expensive at 6€ a day. Very basic standard. Will definitely stay elsewhere next time where for a little extra you can get free WiFi and 6 out of 7 days housekeeping - Santa Rosa for example.
Can’t expect much more for the price

Overall - good. Staff were very friendly, rooms were well cleaned when we arrived. Furniture basic and a bit worse for wear but okay - had everything we needed. Our balcony wasn’t much of a sun trap but the pool area is ok to sit around for a few hours to catch some sun despite being quite basic. We were happy enough with the place for the price. Around a 15 minute walk to the shop which is fine, but you do need to plan shopping carefully as it feels a lot longer on the way back carrying litre bottles of water! A few nice cafes and bars and things around the shop area too so not too far to travel for something to do. Excellent free bus service into costa Teguise also provided. Few negatives: the maids only came a few times and didn’t seem to do a lot they seemed to just change towels and sweep. We were happy enough doing the basics it just seemed a bit odd! No ashtrays on any of the balcony’s so people seemed to have been just throwing cigarette butts off the balcony and onto the floor which is a) bad for the environment and b) makes for a bit of a nasty view. Cupboards seemed to be missing a few things our friends in another apartment had and vice versa. Bathroom door didn’t close. Bedroom got very hot in the mornings even in jan without any air con and the window didn’t open. As I say, for the price is absolutely satisfactory but certainly not luxury.
Average - OK for the price

I'm giving this hotel 3/5 because it was good value but at the same time even being cheap you expect basics to be present. Positives - - Quiet and peaceful - Free bus into town and back three times a day - Cheap taxis into town in the evenings - Very friendly staff who are always smiling and happy to help, very welcoming - Spacious apartments - Decent hob for cooking - A smashing Indian down the road - Reception very helpful with taxis to town and back - Nice view of Timanfaya National Park from our apartment in the back complex. Negatives - - Balcony did not catch any sun throughout the day - Lock on bathroom door broken. Didn't bother us too much but I imagine it would bother others - Bedsheets not changed for the whole of the 10 days we were there. I expect this done at least once for hygiene reasons surely? - Soap bar used and not replaced for the whole of the 10 days - Toilet roll not replaced, had to ask at reception. - Floor not cleaned either. I think all the cleaners did was empty bins and replace towels. - No atmosphere, pool area very quiet with no music, but some may like this - 20 minute walk from Hiperdino and Spar shops meaning you have to then go more often for supplies as you can't carry everything back, appreciate that the hotel can't help this - Very old and outdated furniture with burn marks and graffiti scratched into it - Window didn't open in the bedroom meaning it got very hot early morning and uncomfortable to sleep in - Breakfast is terrible for the price compared to what you can get in the local town - Lifeguard staring at the women, creeping them out a bit. We think we even spotted him trying to take a photo then pretend he was on his phone but his phone was facing the wrong way in his hand. Strange. We had a great holiday but can't help but think that if you holiday here, it is definitely what you make of it.

We have just enjoyed a stay here, it’s good value for money, maybe the details could be updated a little! 10 mins to the nearest supermarket is stretching it somewhat. Taxis vary in price and the free bus great! You need to pay for the safe and you need to pay for the tv remote if you want it (but who wants to stay in and watch tv!!!) Reception and bar staff all great, nice and clean!! For the money it’s worth a visit!!
