Not good if your English and too remote
Gerardo was friendly and escorted us from the airport to the apartment. Some drinks were also left in the fridge on our arrival.
Unfortunately, these were the only positives.
Our main complaint is the lack of things to do in the evening, particularly if your English.
The apartment is 45 mins walk to the nearest shop or bar with the nearest restaurants being
a 15 minute drive away with very few to choose from.
The TV had no english channels and the dvd's provided were all dubbed in Spanish.
We could not stream any movies to our tablet as the internet went down to 1MBS every evening.
The shared pool did not open until 10.30 and no chairs, tables or sunbeds were supplied.We would have to carry our own chairs the 50 meters up several steps.
To make matters worse, the attached apartment was having work done so builders were making noise at 08:00 on at least 6 mornings.
In summary. the apartment is too remote. You would need to be out early in the morning and come back late at night because there is nowhere to go and nothing to do.
I would not recommend this apartment, particularly if you are English.
Quiet , lovely apartment off the beaten track, ideal for exploring the North and centre of GC.
We had a fantastic time here , Gerrado met us at the airport and guided us to the apartment which was great. The apartment itself has everything you would need for a comfortable stay, there are a couple of small supermarkets about 5 minutes drive away and Sardina beach is a similar distance. The location is ideal for exploring the North and interior of the island although you definitely need a car for a week here. It was also very quiet , there was very little noise from other apartments ,most nights all we could hear was the sea against the rocks. If you're looking for a holiday away from the mass tourist areas of the South and want to see the real Gran Canaria this is perfect.
Very nice and clean apartment.
Very nice and clean apartment. The equipment was perhaps the best I have ever experienced. The problem was the missing sea view. The other problem was the environment. Any services were remote. On the other hand the environment was very quiet and the feeling of sea was very present.
A nice quiet clean apartment to enjoy Gran Canaria
Staying on the Gran Canaria for the first time was great, also because we stayed in this nice apartment in Sardina.
The apartment has eveything you need in the bathroom and kitchen (so don't worry if you didn't bring sugar or shampoo). It's located in an quiet area and it was great to only hear the ocean and the wind blowing the palmtreeleaves while enjoying breakfast on the balcony.
You will need a car the explore the island, and enjoy! It's such a nice island with so many diffrent places! Hills, beach, cities, rocks and a blue ocean.
What made us feel welcome and at home right away was that the owner of the apartment came to the airport and showed us nice places around the apartment. That was we found a great grocerystore where we could buy Canarian/spanish food. Those places we probebly didn't find if he didn't show us.
Everything together; a perfect appartment for people who don't like the big touristarea, but who do want to enjoy Gran canaria and eveything the island has to offer.
Fantastic apartment for exploring the north of Gran Canaria. Very clean and well equipped with modern facilities, just a few meters from a rocky bay which is a great location to sit and watch the sun go down behind the mountain on Tenerife.
The small town of Sardina is only a five minute drive away and has a good supermarket and cosy port area where you can sample the locally caught fish or just relax with a drink.
The coast is very spectacular in the north and a visit to Agaete should be included if you are in the area. We also took advantage while in the north with trips to Firgas and Teror as well as a day in Las Palmas. Obviously a car is essential.
All in all this apartments location was perfect for us.
My wife and I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a bit more than the usual tourist traps.
We spent a relaxing week in Sardina and would recommend the area for its laid back attitude and great range of restaurants. Our apartment was exceptional, it had everything. I would highly recommend this apartment, its rural and a great staging point to travel the island.
The apartment who is part of a gated community, is located at 200 meters from the lighthouse of Punta Sardina, one of the seven on the island and at 10 km from the port of Las Nieves (Agaete) from where depart the Fred Olsen´s ferrys to Santa Cruz de Tenerife in just 60 minutes of journey and with a very high daily frequency, allowing the idea of visiting the island of Tenerife, even with the car and also on the same day.
A car is recommended. Parking lot belonging to the apartments.
