"Pleasant clean apartments, would recommend."
Booked this apartment via Expedia, then panicked as I didn't realise I had booked a twin bedroom for my husband and I which I couldn't change, was told 'you can push the beds together', it worked ok, but would have preferred a double bed.
Official pictures are accurate. I viewed guest pictures, the rooms/ bed area looked small and a bit pokey, ours was better than the picture shown.
Our Garden Room is newly refurbished, no poolside view. Rooms are clean have everything you could need from an apartment including sharp knives, non stick pan, dishcloth etc, I would have no hesitation in recommending it as a great place to stay.
The pool area is clean and fresh, friendly helpful staff, very close (5mins walk) to the centre of Porto Carmen strip and beach, and slightly further 8 mins to the less Blackpool like Harbour area, where the bars and restaurants are a bit more classy. It is quite a steep walk down to it. Theres a local Spar shop 5 mins walk, local buses go from there too. Visited by bus, Playa Blanca, very pretty, Arricife, the capital, worth a visit, Tiguise, the old capital, which is beautiful, old, and rustic. All are approx 20-40 mins on bus.
First visit to Canaries for winter sun, found Porto Carmen a bit tacky. At Easter, surprised how quiet it was in the evenings, ate early as by 10pm, it was very quiet, apart from a few Irish bars, which we didn't fancy.
