Apartment overview - owner's description

Overlooking the sea, a minute or so from the beach a very private apartment, set in mature gardens for a quiet relaxing holiday

Overlooking the sea, just a minute or so from the beach on the fringe of Playa del Inglés Gran Canaria, this delightful & very private apartment offers perfect holiday accommodation for two people with separate bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining area, full bathroom with shower and furnished terrace. The full floor to ceiling picture windows in lounge & bedroom afford fantastic panoramic sea views and the patio style door opens on to the large balcony, great for eating al fresco, drinks, or sunbathing. The apartment has the advantage of not being overlooked. Now with own FREE WiFi, and a new, top of the range, 32" television

Everything provided for comfort
We have just installed a brand new state of the art kitchen, with electric oven and hob, refridgerator, freezer. dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Crockery, cutlery and glassware, pans and cookware, cafetiere, toaster, everything down to the necessary corkscrew. Incidentally an iron and small ironing board are also provided.

There is a DVD player with a built in digi-box which provides English speaking programmes as well as German, Spanish and Italian channels as well as an excellent selection of English DVD films and music CDs, together with a fine selection of holiday reading paperbacks (English only).

The brand newly installed bathroom has walk-in rain & power shower, toilet, fitted washbasin and marble vanity unit and hairdryer.

The bedroom has full size sliding door wardrobe with built in shelves and a king size double bed. The balcony can be accessed through patio style sliding doors. All bed linen and personal towels are provided, but we ask that you bring (or purchase) beach towels for the pool or beach.

The balcony is the full width of the apartment offering plenty of space with table, chairs, and a clothes-airer, yet still leaving sufficient room for sunbathing

Quiet, tranquil yet not far from lively bars and restaurants
The apartment is on the four floor affording splendid views of the sea, but as there is no lift perhaps it is not suitable for wheelchair users or those who find it difficult to climb stairs.

The exclusive apartment complex is surrounded by mature well-tended gardens with solar powered heated swimming pool. The gardens have plenty of loungers and sunshades needed for complete relaxation. Most of the apartments in this small select development are privately owned and the ambiance is one of tranquillity, in the company of mature couples. Entry to the garden and the apartments is through a secure permanently locked gate for which you will have a key. The apartments and gardens are ideal for a those wanting peace and quiet and relaxation, yet just a few minutes away one can enjoy a variety of pleasant restaurants overlooking the sea with an exciting nightlife of bars and restaurants of the centre of Playa del Inglés just a short walk away. Within a few minutes you will find a selection of super restaurants with tables overlooking the bay, serving local and international dishes, as well as friendly bars some with entertainment. So whether your preference is a thick juicy steak cooked over wood, local freshly caught fish, Canarian specialities or just a pizza with a beer you’ll find it all close by.

This small exclusive privately owned complex is approximately 35 minutes from the airport, with a taxi costing about 35euros.

A car is not essential as taxis are plentiful and cheap, and a bus terminus is just 200 yards away, however should you wish to explore at your own pace a car can be hired by the day or more from three possible car hire companies approximately two minutes walk from apartment.

Personal towels are changed midway through each week and bed linen changed at the end of each week, full general cleaning is not carried out between arrival and departure as we feel guests prefer privacy. Cleaning mop, brushes, even a small vacuum cleaner is provided, and guests are expected to leave the apartment on departure clean and tidy. If you do require general cleaning to be carried out over and above this standard, please ask our local representatives who will arrange this at a cost of €30 for each clean, paid directly to them. We will try to accommodate arrival and leaving time to suit flight arrival and departure where possible but this might not always be the case as it dependent on the arrival time of the next guests arrival.

This was my second stay at this apartment, the last being in 2015 but this time I was accompanied by my girlfriend.
The apartment is on the top floor so you need to be able to cope with stairs but the location is ideal, just across the road from the promenade. Although the road outside is part of a circular one-way system, we never found the fairly low volume of traffic to be obtrusive.
The door lock remained stiff and much jiggling of the keys was needed.
Broadband was good although it occasionally dropped out for brief periods.
Particularly useful is the 4 way adaptor which has British 3 pin plugs - brilliant for charging your camera, tablet, phones etc.
Bed was comfortable.
Balcony gets sun in the morning but mostly shaded in the late afternoon although the plastic chairs are not particularly comfortable.
The main issues for us were unrelated to the apartment - we had a hire car and parking was a pain - there are free parking spaces around the corner in Calle El Pez but that can be hit or miss. About half a mile back up Calle Madrid, there are spaces in front of the Playa del Ingles hotel but otherwise, the side streets off Calle Gran Canaria but that's a fair trot away. The option is to park in the blue bays. These require about 2.5 Euros for 4 hours but don't bother because if you wait to get booked, you can cancel the ticket for 1 Euro 80 so factor in that amount a day and it is probably reasonable.
Beaches are nice and not crowded at all, in May (save the other end, down by the dunes) and the weather was fabulous and the sea warm.
Gran Canaria is not particularly cheap and there are small minimarkets dotted round. We ate at El Gaucho in the Atlantic shopping centre who give you a full bottle of liquer at the end to drink at your leisure, making it better value. We also tried one on the promenade with the Elvis impersonator - nice food but I think he was older than Elvis. I tried cheap at Casa Luis on the Calle Italia but best avoided.

An aptly named apartment. We have just returned from a terrific stay in this apartment. There is everything you need to make your stay comfortable and safe. The kitchen facilities are first class and sleeping accommodation and storage is more than adequate. Kai and Paul were very prompt in responding to any questions and provide very prompt changeover of towels and bed linen. Some cushions for the outside seating would make the chairs more comfortable to sit on but this didn't stop us enjoying a relax on the balcony. The pool and garden area is very well maintained and made for a good number of afternoons relaxing by the pool. A most enjoyable stay.

Centrally placed downside noisy road.
Good view downside 54 steps to top floor.
No comfortable seating especially on the balcony.
Pool and surrounding area very well kept.

Couple from Nantwich, United Kingdom Dec 2015

Absolutely loved everything . The apartment felt like home immediately. Spotlessly clean. Balcony views are amazing and has the sun from 8.30am to approx 5pm ( bear in mind we were there for Christmas and New Year). Location is superb, within 20 min walk of everything or just 2 mins for local restaurants,bars,supermarkets etc. If there were more than 4 people around the pool, then it was busy!!!!! Paul and Kai who look after the apartment are minds of local information, but leave you alone to enjoy. Will have no hesitation in recommending the apartment or in fact Playa De Ingle. Thank you so much.

Lovely property in ideal location for beach ,shops and restaurants. Neighbours , Paul and Kai were particularly helpful giving a warm welcome and great recommendations on where to visit and where to eat

From Caerphilly, United Kingdom Apr 2015

April 2015 - A well-located apartment one row back from the front-line promenade. Access to the beach is as easy as walking across the road and cutting through to the promenade. If you have a hire car, there is swift and direct access to the main road arteries via the Avenida D'Italia, round the corner. It is good value compared to another place I stayed, 2 years ago, in a similar position.
The apartment itself is a top floor apartment with a nice balcony. Very clean and the bed is comfortable.
The only demerits were the usual sticky front door lock (they do all seem to do it). a failure of the internet Wi-Fi connection (eventually fixed) and the parking.
The parking outside is the usual blue boxes. It costs E2:40 for 4 hours. If you overstay or don't pay, the local fines appear to be revocable at the machines for E1:80 but I'm not sure how successful that is and didn't try it. I parked in Calle El Pez, which is just round the corner, via the promenade, where free spaces are usually available from about 17:30 onwards, as the beachgoers leave. So if you're going out, make it for the day and the parking should sort itself. The island is very scenic and well worth a drive round.
Back to the apartment, it is well-located near the Tropical Shopping Centre which has a number of restaurants and in the evening, a 5 minute walk from the Kasbah Centre or a 20 minute walk from Yumbo Centre. However, in terms of entertainment, April offers very little bar what appears to be a greater number of people trying to get you into restaurants etc than there are tourists.
I can't comment on the pool etc as I never used them.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and thank you for the comprehensive review. We weren't aware the front door lock was tricky, but will have it checked. As for the Wifi we called the engineers as soon as you reported it, but we all know what BT engineers are like in terms of urgency. It was a problem with the router which was fixed by the apartment manager with telephone assistance from BT. We are sorry you were inconvenience, but in a the eighteen months we have had broadband, it is the first problem we've had. Most people comment on how refreshing it is to have free wifi when most hotels seem to charge about €15 per day! We look forward to welcoming you as a guest again soon.

We spent a very enjoyable two weeks in this lovely apartment and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. The newly installed kitchen has everything you need for cooking in and we enjoyed using the super cooker. There is a very good shower in the bathroom and we were provided with lots of nice new fluffy towels. Everywhere is extremely clean and it is a real ‘home from home’. The sliding patio doors in the lounge and bedroom make for a very bright space. We enjoyed spending time on the large terrace. We were hoping the pool might be warmer but enjoyed sunbathing in the garden on the comfortable sunbeds. The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the beach and promenade and a good selec tion of restaurants. It was also handy being close to the bus station for exploring further afield.

From Ciara Duggan Booking Reference 73042-205353 Thank you for a wonderful holiday in your little apartment. The location was perfect and the view of the sea as we sat out on the balcony having our breakfast each morning was an added bonus. We loved the apartments quirky style and the extremely comfortable bed (more comfortable than our own!). The apartment had everything we needed and it was great that we had access to a pool as well as the beach being across the street! Thank you so much for your restaurant recommendations and advice on places to go. We particularly liked El Gaucho and really enjoyed our trip to Puerto de Mogan for the market on Friday. We met Jess and Karen at Bambinos and true to your word we enjoyed two delicious breakfasts during our stay. We mentioned to them that you had recommended their restaurant and they were very pleased and pass on their thanks and best wishes. We will be sure to recommend your apartment to any friends or family who might be planning a trip to Gran Canaria. Ciara & Steve

Stayed yet again at the Don Quiote probably for the fifth time. Great location second line for the walk along the sea wall which is just across the road. Very convenient for shops and restaurants and bars. We always get a taxi from the airport (35 euros) but the bus back to the airport (6.70 euros for two). Cannot fault our apartment

We have until very recently only allowed family members and friends to use the apartment so we have no written reviews available, however the apartment was purchased as our holiday home and is equipped and furnished accordingly for our own comfort.

As you can see, we now have reviews for which we are very grateful. We cannot remove the message we placed above as owners of the apartment, but thought we needed to amend it as it now makes no sense.
