From the very start Maura the owner was very helpful and the response by email is very fast from her and Nicholas ( the caretaker) met us there at the agreed time . The apartment is very clean and modern and has all the mod cons. To Be honest the pics cud be updated on the site with a high resolution camera as they don't do it justice. It's much better than the pics. We were very pleasantly surprise at how homely it was. We ate at the apartment a few evenings on the lovely terrace as we got sick of eating out and it is well equipped even had a BBQ one night which was lovely. We booked a car at the airport and would highly recommend for this area.
We drove most evenings to different resorts to try out new restaurants and it's an excellent base for this.
The area is very quite and a lot of residents live here so if it's a party scene your looking for its probably the wrong location for you. If it's a relaxing holiday you want well this is ideal.
Great cafe and supermarket up the road for general shopping about 5 min walk but you will save a lot of money by doing a main shop at Lidl or Very large supermarket up on TF1 (main motorway) about 5 km from the airport. Great size fridge and freezer in the apartment allows you to do this .
Do try the Hong Kong chinese just below at the roundabout. Really tasty food even though it was very quite there.
Overall the big question is would we stay there again and the answer is definitely YES.
The apartment is very comfortable and equipped with everything. Palm Mar is very nice place specially for quiet rest. We are greatful assistant from Mr.Nicolas.Best regards for Maura from our family.
The apartment actually looks better then on the pictures!
Our family of 4 had a great holidays there. We were met by Nicolas, who has explained us how everything works in the apartment. The apartment has everything you might need, especially if you have a small kid - kids bed, books and toys - just so handy :)
The apartment was spotlessly clean, very nicely decorated and new.
The balcony is huge, and the view to the ocean is great.
The balcony doors have a grid to close the access to the apartment when you are not at home, so we left our valuables at home without worries.Additionally there is a small safe, which you can use, but ask Nicolas how to operate it.
We were looking for a silent place where we can relax and sleep, while traveling during the day to different parts of the island. Palm mar is very quiet residential area, but in 5 minutes walk from the apartment you have some restaurants and bars and Coviran supermarket. The local beach is rocky, but you can go to Los Cristianos for a perfect sandy beach in less then 10 minutes by car.
There is some kind of public transport in Palm Mar, but I can not comment on its frequency and directions. We had rent-a-car and near the apartment there were always a lot of spare and free parking place. The pool area really looks like at the pictures, but we like the ocean, and never used the pool.
Overall, the apartment is a small gem, and if you would like a quiet place as a base in to explore the island with rent-a-car, to be close to the Los Cristianos and Playa des Americas, but to sleep without being disturbed by their noise - The apartment is the best choice! We will happily return next time.
