excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very good quality apartment. It is absolutely in the center of the village, with an excellent view to the sea and the main square also. Ideal for a couple or a small family. We felt at home from the first day of our holiday. We would definitely reccomend to any one.

We also liked El Medano very much. It is an ideal windsurfing spot, where you can try surfing on waves of different sizes.

Don't book this appartment!!

  • 1 of 5

The appartment shown in the photos was not the appartment that we got when we arrived in El Medano.

The appartment that we were shown in to was a 3 bedroom appartment with 2 shower rooms. You're probably wondering what the complaint is about. The following is what the complaint is about :-

Communication with the owner is very poor. We had emailed her before our departure, giving her our arrival time and she informed us that she would be in the area to show us in to the appartment. Thankfully she included her mobile number as on arrival at El Medano we telephoned to find out where and how we were to get in to the appartment and waited around 1 hour before someone arrived. We had been travelling since 3am but had no choice but to wait the hour to get the keys for the appartment.

The shower off the main bedroom had no hot water. The shower itself wasn't too clean.

There was a damp patch on the bedroom wall that looks like there's been a long term issue coming from the bathroom.

The other shower was so small that it was impossible to move in there. Towels were needed on the floor every time the shower was in use as water ran out all over the floor.

There was only Spanish TV.

There was no internet access despite being told there was.

The DVD player wasn't working.

The oven wasn't clean and therefore we didn't use it.

The room off the kitchen that had the washing machine in was filthy.

There were bare light bulbs hanging in the living room and the dining room - the lamp shades sat on top of the unit in the living room.

The sofas were filthy and we used the blankets from the bedrooms to cover these before we sat on them.

We did not have the lovely sea view that we thought we were getting, instead looked out on to the square. This wasn't a huge problem although the sun shone at front of the building leaving the appartment we were in a bit shaded and chilly. We didn't sit out on the balcony due to this.

The bed sheets had holes in them and had been stitched in places.

Chipped paint work and the appartment generally needs a bit of work done to it. It is not welcoming at all and due to the neglected interior is quite depressing to spend any time in it - we made only tea and coffee in the appartment and ate every meal out in the local bars and restaurants.

I would not recommend booking a property with this owner as you may also end up living in the same accommodation as we did for the duration of your stay. It is the worst I have ever stayed in!!

Gone downhill

  • 3 of 5

We were met by Angela's husband who let us in. I had booked the flat that we had last year but we were given the front one as they have sold the other one. It was much noisier at night with the English cafe /bar underneath. The flat wasn't as clean as it should have been. Equipment worked but showing it's age. Still an amazing location with fantastic views and near the great restaurants. We will return to beautiful El Medano again - but will stay elsewhere.

Excellent Apartment in a Canarian coastal town

  • 4 of 5

The location of the apartment was exactly as listed in that it is on the first floor of a small edificio located on a corner of El Medano Plaza and the promenade, beach and sea. It is a fairly large one bedroom apartment with a well laid out open plan kitchen and lounge. The lounge has two large floor to ceiling windows, one of which faces the plaza and the other looks out onto the promenade/beach immediately below. in the corner of the lounge is a double door patio with a balcony which overlooks plaza and beach. There is a table and two chairs on the balcony which makes it a fantastic relaxing experience anytime of the day.

The facilities within the apartment are as detailed within the description which we found more than adequate. In the single bedroom there are two double wardrobes and a set of drawers, with two very comfortable single beds which can easily be pushed together to create a double bed.

The bathroom is quite small but is adequate having a shower cubicle, toilet, bidet and washbasin.

The whole of the apartment was very clean and well maintained inside and the same can be said about the small apartment block in which it is situated.

The only real criticism we had was the frustration and problem we had was actually getting into the apartment building itself.

I had been advised by the owner, Angela, by email to "telephone me as soon as your plane lands as I shall be around in El Medano to let you into the apartment. I attempted several times to do this but there was no answer from her phone.

Angela did have on her description an alternative number which fortunately I had noted. However there was no response when I made a call to that number either.

By this time after a long flight my wife and I were getting very frustrated and concerned. Fortunately, a Spanish lady at the desk within the airport from whom I had booked a taxi to take us to the apartment came to our help. She spent a lot of time trying both the telephone numbers I had been given and eventually the alternative number was answered by a Spanish man who was the keyholder to the apartment.

The Spanish lady who had been tremendous in eventually getting through told the keyholder we were about to leave the airport and he responded in saying he would be there to meet us. We duly arrived in the taxi butt waited over 20 minutes for him to appear!

From that point we were very relieved as we we wondering what we could do next!!
