“Travelers be weary”
Reviewed 10 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

I booked this Apartment in Puerto de Guimar from 27th December 2017 to the 15th Febuary 2018 it was my first visit to the island of Tenerife. I had visited the other canarie islands in other years and really enjoyed my stay.

I had contacted the owner a few times by email before we traveled, our arrangement was for me to ring her when we had landed and on our way to the apartment. The owner changed our agreed arrangement a few days before as she was working and asked me to ring her mother instead and she would meet us at the apartment and show us around , hand over the key's. The owner never informed us that her mother spoke no english.

When we arrived it was late in the evening, I rang her mother from the taxi, as she did not speak English, the taxi driver helped us out by talking to her in Spanish. He was able to obtain the directions to where we were to meet her. If we had come by bus as directed by the owner, and omitting to inform us we would need to change buses at Guimar, we would been lost so late at night. Having the owners mother showed us around the apartment and because neather of us spoke fluent spanish, it was very difficult to communicate or ask any questions.
The owner spoke english however with no communication from her in way of greeting or otherwise disappointing to say the least. We where got out by the overview of the apartment and it's general area so much so we didn't ask right questions we found that the area is quaint but not for us.

The apartment was nice it had all the essentials hob oven all items necessary for cooking for making own meal, had free WiFi satalite tv and a balcony. Unfortunately this balcony did not get the sun during the day except one corner to the left before this left apartment feeling cold as there was always a cold breeze blowing within the complex this was very disappointing for us. We like a sunny positioned balcony if at all possible however due to the apartment position on the complex we had no sun. There was a pool area however neither where used. Most are private apartments.

Next morning I had a walk around, only then did I realise how small a town it was. It soon became apprantent that it was an area that only speak Spanish in restaurants the 2 shops, very little amenities and a small town for Spanish to have a day out in. When all Spanish leave everything shuts down including restaurants around 7pm.There are no holiday aminities except the lava nature park which we found disappointing as there are no clear walkways/paths, at times very difficult to navigate had to be abandoned walk due to walking difficulties. The local bus runs every hour and if you wish to travel outside of Peutito de Guimar you be left in an area of Puerto sur or walk 30 or so minutes to Puerto sur where you have to get across a moterway on either side of the road depending which area of Tenerife you are visiting. Within the town there is one chemist 2 pub/restaurant 4 cafe and Quay to walk along. There is no car hire facilities so you may be depending on bus service. Not a resort by any means a home away from home for Spanish themselves however with the 1 spar restaurants closing early we cooked many meals as we had been cought out by the town shutting down early evening not for mainstream tourist. After 10 days we want to be where we knew a little Spanish however a little english goes a long way.

“Quiet apartment just a stone's throw from the beach”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

From the outset our host was very friendly and helpful in accommodating us with our two young children. The apartment is compact but quiet and bright and well-equipped for self-catering. The swimming pool was a great hit with our daughter. The location was great in that we were only minutes from the beach and the restaurants and the playground. We enjoyed the atmosphere in the Puertito during the weekend when local people and families were out enjoying the beaches and the plaza.

The apartment is very spacious and well-equipped. The building is very quiet at night, except for when the winds are high! It was very clean and located just one block from the beach. A very nice place to spend a few days.

“Very good value for money”

This apartment was quiet, well equipped and just five minutes walk from the centre of the village and a couple of minutes from the beach. Although not the most glamourousl apartment, it was bright and cheerful and very reasonably priced making it excellent value for money and a very a good base from which to explore the east side of the island by car.
