Me and my partner took a holiday to Puerto Del Carmen in February 2011 and booked this self catering apartment for a week.
I was pleasantly surprised at what good value for money it was. The apartment was spacious with a balcony facing the pool and got great sun in the afternoon. The scenery was really nice, with a view of the sea and also the mountains. We got some great sunsets. It was cleaned every other day and the towels were replaced and the beds made. It had a well supplied kitchen with fridge and I found it easy to make meals on the days we didn't eat out.
The location of the apartments is great, 5 minutes walk to the beach and the main strip, and there is a shop almost next door, although I found it a bit pricey and went to the one further down the hill instead. We also found a great Irish bar at the end of the road (The Drop Inn) where we got great breakfasts and had music on some evenings.
Even though the balcony faced the pool it was relatively quiet and found no problems sleeping at all.
They had happy hour where you could get cheap drinks, but we didn't take advantage of this very often as we were out. Some familes preferred to stay by the pool on the sun loungers all day, but we only did this once. I tried the pool but it was really too cold at the time of year we went. The sea was warm enough to swim in, so I did this instead. The pool itself was clean and would have been great had it been warmer.
I found the staff friendly and helpful, and they provided a place for our luggage when we left as our flight wasn't until the end of the day.
I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a large budget, it's not luxurious, but clean, well located and great for the price. I would stay here again.
