The apartment was absolutely grotty! and not the same as the pictures showed

  • 1 of 5

The complex was clean and well maintained but our apartment was terrible . It was not clean! stale pasta in cupboards and thick dust on lampshades in bedroom. The sink in the kitchen was chipped and rusty. The pots were chipped and one mug and a chipped cup. No kettle. Fridge would not close properly. Bathroom shower taps full of rust. Old towels with one hand towel . Bedding left for mid week change did not fit properly and unable to change pillowcases again unable to fit. Keys just left with us no instructions anywhere even what to do on our departure No TV or music, very old uncomfortable settee in lounge, think this apartment was not at all like the pictures in the original advert. We feel we have been very much overcharged for such a BAD apartment and we would warn people against staying in it. Only good part was the balcony and views and we spent most of our time with warm clothing in the evenings there as we didn't like to sit in lounge Throughout our stay no one contacted us to see if everything was alright. We like El Madano and would like to stay there again but definitely not in that apartment

Owner's Response: Hello, I would firstly like to express that everything listed and shown on the Homelidays web page is what is offered by the Apartment owner, nothing outside that listed was offered, thus no misrepresentation has been made, or has been intended. A kettle was not placed because clients (from varying parts of the world) in the past have opted to use other means available to boil water, however had you requested one it would have been placed. All other kitchen utensils are new, as is all the bed linen. Moreover, should you not be satisfied for whatever reason, they and other items would have been replaced. It seems you had problems with how the remote control of the TV worked, together with where to leave the Keys. As indicated through our correspondence prior to your arrival both Maria, contact person who works within the Estrella Del Mar is available within the apartment complex, as am I locally. My direct telephone number with the necessary pre fix code was made available to you. Neither option was used to communicate any misgivings at any time. Had you done so we would have respectfully helped in any way, that being part of the service offered. Our intention is to make your stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. We do not offer music, or a music system in which to play music. Our experience is that most clients have their own personal collection, and mediums. The apartment is cleaned and serviced. Towels and beddings are indeed changed. However, once again I would like to stress that contact details and persons are at hand to help with any clarifications or misgivings, as are most people’s desire for privacy respected, and indeed, understood. I am sure that you can read and acknowledge the opinions of many visitors (over sixty) who have stayed at the apartment during these last three years. Contrary to your very personal review, all concur that the apartment is in fact comfortable, and clean, as was their satisfaction with the availability of myself and Maria. I trust that this reply will address your misgivings, and place the reality perceived within a better context of what the short letting service entails and offers its clients. Yours sincerely, Alejandro.

Nice apartment with everything you need for spending some nice weeks in El Médano. Excellent view to the harbour wall, the bay and the red mountain. Very good position, near to the beaches and the main squares with plenty of restaurantes.

If you like GOLF, we recommend the AMARILLA GOLF, located in the next village of “LAS GALLETAS”,a small fishing village, where you can also taste fresh fish and cuisine typical Canarian.

You can go on foot to the nudist of “LA TEJITA BEACH”, since it is located behind the Red Mountain (which you can see from the terrace of the own apartment).

There is a Mc Donald on the highway, if you like fast food.

If you want to do eco-tourism please visit mount TEIDE which, with a height of 3718 m, is the highest peak in Spain, at a distance of 30 km from the apartment. This volcano is located within the NATIONAL PARK of TEIDE, being the most visited in Spain, and from its Summit you can see part of the rest of the Canary Islands. Since 2007, is considered world heritage, protected ecological World Book.

In the next town of Adeje, which is located 20 km from the apartment, concentrates the most important tourist centre of the island and, among other attractions, is you can visit the 'SIAM PARK' aquatic park or make a boat trip to visit the Whales and Dolphins that inhabit the shores of Tenerife.

In the North of the island (Puerto de la Cruz), you can visit the “EL LORO PARQUE” (Parrot Park) which offers a wide variety of animal species (parrots, whales, dolphins, penguins, Tigers, gorillas, etc); It is considered the most visited attraction in the Canary Islands and the most important in Europe, within its modality, comparable to SEAWORLD of Orlando (USA).

In the town of EL MEDANO, you can visit the religious space of the cave of HERMANO PEDRO, first Canary Saint, and it is considered the place of most important pilgrimage on the island of Tenerife.

If you like to visit other tourist areas with atmosphere day and night can approach drive to the beaches of LOS CRISTIANOS, LAS AMERICAS, and FAÑABE, where you can enjoy a variety of leisure facilities (Restaurants, Discos, Pubs, Luxury Shopping Malls, etc…)
