About Paul

We are a couple recently retired and we bought our apartment in Royal Palm 18 years ago primarily as an investment for retirement income but also for us and our friends and family to use for breaks in winter sun. Having had previous great holidays at Royal Palm when our children were younger we decided this was an ideal retreat from the uncertain British weather and we have never regretted buying it. Our family and friends continue to use the apartment for several weeks a year and therefore we like to make sure it is well maintained and kept to a high standard. The ambient winter temperature allows you to wear T-shirts and shorts all the year round and make full use of the terrace.

Paul purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Paul chose Arona

We stumbled across Royal Palm after the Co-Op Travel agents suggested we might like it there and we booked a 2 week holiday with some friends. When we tried to book the same apartment the following year we found it was for sale and the rest is history as they say. This was a big decision for us so we had a good look around properties in Los Cristianos before making a commitment but never found anywhere as nice or as relaxing. It is close but not too close to the airport. It is a quiet environment but close to all amenities. Royal Palm gets favourable reviews on TripAdvisor.

What makes this apartment unique

There is no nicer feeling than unpacking the suitcase at the start of a holiday and relaxing on the terrace with a cool beer or glass of Rioja. The apartment is ideal for chilling out for a week or two - is situated between both of Royal Palm pools but far enough away to relax on the terrace. It is a ground floor apartment so relatively few steps to negotiate. Pleasant outlook over well tended and well lit gardens.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us use your lovely apartment again this year - super relaxing holiday. - Pete and Sharon, Hampshire.

Everything was spot on as usual. - Susan , Cumbria.

Loved our break in Tenerife. Your apartment is a real winner and we enjoyed chilling out at Royal Palm. - Jill Reed, Coventry.

My sister and I found the apartment to be clean, well equipped and maintained and most of all very secure. Paul and Diana have left lots of useful information in the apartment to help everyone along. The balcony has two sunbeds along with table and four chairs. The complex has two lovely pools, the lower one being the most popular. We revisited two of our favourite eating places, La Laconda and the Chinese/Japanese called Overseas just a short walk away down the hill in the shopping centre. Both excellent food and service. There are numerous other restaurants near by so no shortage of choice and there are also two supermarkets close by. For anyone with walking difficulties the steps on the complex could prove to be a problem. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Thank you Paul & Diana.

Can't in any way fault the property and surrounds. Like all the properties in this location it is uphill,.. so in the beautiful hot weather walking up the hill is a bit of a negative,..depends on age!. Plenty to do , excellent bus travel if you want to explore. A number of nice beaches,.. Siam Park is excellent for family,.. or two oldies! Enjoy!

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week on 16 February. No 97 is very comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. Royal Palm itself is beautiful with two lovely pools and numerous restaurants and shops nearby. We were very lucky with weather with only one cloudy day out of the week. Thank you once again Paul for letting us stay in your lovely apartment. We will certainly be visiting again. Linda and John Hainey.

First Class Appartment

We spent 10 days at this lovely garden apartment in December and couldn't have had a better time. There is everything you need, the complex is both quiet and immaculately kept and there are several bars a few minutes walk. One bar has numerous TVs for sports fans, whilst another offers nightly entertainment so something for every taste. I highly recommend Kejerta restaurant which is just across the road and offers daily specials of lamb, fish and beef dishes. I have to mention that the complex is at the top of a fairly steep hill with quite a few steps inside so would not suit people of limited mobility but if you're reasonably fit book this appt.
