Booked this apartment hoping for two great weeks in the sun. Sadly when we arrived no one to let us in and no contact from Owner to advise that there was a problem. After finding a very helpful lady on site, who tried to contact the owner and I sending an email as could not reach owner on the phone, we were told to wait for an hour and someone would turn up to let us in. Then we found we did not have the apartment we had booked and no explanation given as lady who came to let us in did not speak any English. Not a great start. We were then advised that we could move to the apartment we had booked on the following Saturday which meant packing everything up again and moving to the much better apartment. It is a very nice apartment but right next to a very busy and noisy road and very noisy people upstairs dragging furniture around at 2.30 in the morning. Only one tea towel, so small, it was useless. It is not well looked after with towel rail in master ensuite pulled off the wall and on the floor and various bits and pieces in need of attention throughout the apartment. No information for local area and very difficult to get a taxi. 20 minute walk to beach and 15 minute walk to Supermarket down the hill! Also many people living there have dogs who bark all day and sometimes at night. Will most certainly not be going back
Palm-mar is a little bit of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of Las Americas and Los Cristianos. The pool at Las Olas was under maintenance whilst we were there but it looks absolutely stunning and is huge!
Would highly recommend but you do really need a car.
Very comfortable fully furnished apartment in a modern development in the quiet area of Palm Mar. The rooms are large, bright, and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. The lounge and bedrooms are fitted with beautiful televisions, although we found no English channels. The beds are very comfortable and nicely arranged. We very much enjoyed the wraparound balcony which allowed breakfast watching the sunrise and cocktails as it set! The property is in the middle of a rugged national park which stretches to the sea. The massive unheated swimming pool is the centrepiece of the development, with a smaller children's pool nearby. A small supermarket is very close by, and several restaurants and bars a few minutes' walk. The underground car park is useful as a car is essential. Very convenient for the TF-1 motorway (Tenerife Sur airport and Los Cristianos are an easy 15 minutes drive). I think the owner is very proud of his apartment, and he was quick to respond to my e-mails. We really enjoyed our stay, and would happily recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a quieter holiday away from the larger towns.
The apartment has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The owner is charming, attentive and helpful.
The pool is very large and very quiet. Perfect holiday.
