“lovely holiday”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Spent lovely 14 nights at E Mar 21.Property is right on the harbour front complete with your own replica boat.The tide comes right up to the steps in your rocky garden.You can waken in the morning to the water lapping on the steps and the sounds of the ducks.
There is always something to see in the harbour from your upper balcony together with mountain views of Western Lanzarote and the island of Fuerteventura in the distance.Lots of lovely restaurants within a stones throw almost of the property. We found the Island Bistro and the Mexican on Cale Teide very good value.

If you are looking to stay in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen what better location could you wish for than overlooking the harbour and that is exactly what you get with El Mar 21. Beautifully located and internally well decorated and equipped, I don't think you could wish for a better holiday home in the area.

“Location, Location, Location!”

On a previous visit to Puerto Del Carmen we admired this Apartment and its few neighbours as we walked the boardwalk at the Harbour and hoped that some day we could stay there. Well when a significant wedding came to be celebrated I searched the web to see if any of those apartments were for rent and fortunately El Mar was. We stayed for one week and regretted that it could not be longer. The expectation was exceeded by the reality - there is not a better location and for the week we watched the Island activities and festivities at the harbour. There are a range of good restaurants and pubs within 3 minutes of the apartment. Helen [ and Margarita locally] ensured that our holiday needs were facilitated. We have come home relaxed and restored! Thank you. BM

“Just gorgeous”

We have just returned from Lanzarote, having stayed in El Mar 21 and it was fabulous. The apartment is in a quiet almost-pedestrianised street and looks out onto the harbour and boardwalk. It is a small apartment block that is so photogenic that almost everyone stops to take a picture or two. It was a €13.50 taxi fare from the airport and was easy to find, with excellent directions from the owner Helen. We found it both spotless and very comfortable. It was lovely to sit there in the evening and watch the boats coming back into the harbour. There are several very good restaurants within a couple of minutes walk and the walkway across the cliffs to Puerto Calero goes past the door. We thoroughly recommend this as a place to say. It is just gorgeous. It's a pity we couldn't have it to ourselves though. We loved it and already, some of our friends are interested in going here.

“Perfect!”

Don't know if I can add anything new to all the previous reviews but El Mar 21 really was perfect. We spent many happy hours sitting on the balcony and could even do so in the rain as there is a canopy which can be pulled out for such an occasion. The apartment was very airy and bright and spacious and what a joy to be able to hear the gentle lapping of waves just yards away as one drifts off to sleep. Beds very comfy with gorgeously light, cosy duvets and the kitchen very well equipped. .Helen is a pleasure to deal with and the lady that looks after the apartment is friendly and efficient. Two supermarkets and lots of lovely restaurants and bars nearby. Can't wait to visit again.
