1/10 Okay

Not equipped for families

The good …. Great pool for the children, shallow end a childrens splash pool, more than enough sun beds. Facilities such as play park and tennis court were good. Pool bar was friendly and well priced. Animation provided by Pedro was well organised and very child friendly. The bad…. We were in room 199 and were disturbed throughout our 6 night stay with building noise. The block we were staying in (6) should really have been closed for refurbishment and not let out to families. It’s also worth noting block 6 overlooks the California bar which has live music until the early hours. Fine if you are sleeping in the bedroom but not if you’re on the sofa bed. We were 2 adults and 2 children (8 and 6) and the rooms were not designed for a family (proven by only having 3 chairs, 3 knives and forks, 3 cups etc etc). The water tank holds 30 litres of water and it takes 45 minutes for the water to heat back up after a shower - you can imagine how long it takes to shower a family of 4! The electricity in our room was horrendous. The fuse box kept tripping every day. We had the maintenance man out daily, one day he came 4 times. All they kept saying was we were using too many volts. When using the kettle to boil water for a bath the fuse box would trip because the boiler was also heating the water. It transpired we could only use 3 electric plugs at once and this had to include the fridge and the boiler when it was reheating the water! The one night I did cook dinner we could only use 1 ring, each time I used 2 rings the electric box immediately tripped and the maintenance man said we could only use 1 ring even though everything apart from the fridge was unplugged. Try cooking dinner for a family of 4 on one ring – it’s impossible. Needless to say we did not attempt to cook again. The sofa bed was below adequate. It’s a piece of foam on top of a camp bed. One night one of the slats in the sofa bed snapped and my partner only weighs 11 stone. Again reception offered no apology but is was fixed. No matter how many times we went to reception to complain all they did was send the maintenance man up. There was never any apology. These apartments would be adequate for cheap accommodation for a couple but are not fit for purpose for a family holiday.

The best thing about my stay was...

The childrens animation from Pedro

Brilliant

Perfect location, pool bar food excellent, very comfortable and clean, can rent your pool towels for 10é per week and it's refunded, location is brilliant as this side of old town is better value in the bars and restaurants, 2mins walks from strip but still quiet at nite, and u can sleep as beds are fine, little tip we had small child so wanted him sleeping close to us so we tied the legs off the beds together which made a nice king side bed, definitely going back, this is our 2nd time here in theses apartments.

The best thing about my stay was...

Safety and cleaniness

Good Location and great pool

The location of these apartments is brilliant. Not a great standard, definitely 2 star. Wifi in the rooms non-existent but good in reception (7mbs), however wifi not great in general all over Puerto del Carmen. Pool facilities very good and always sun beds available. Would stay here again for the location alone.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and the swimming pool

Our stay at La Penita

5 of us stayed in La Penita in 2 separate apartments from 3rd April to 10th April 2016 and have to say it was exactly as per reviews with Alpha Rooms, Apartments basic in very good area, apartments lovely and clean, safe, pool lovely, sun loungers ok, cleaned daily except Wed & Sun which only effected us on the Wed, extra pillows when asked for. One thing we found was that only one socket on work top which boiled the kettle but nowhere for microwave to be plugged in unless we moved it, I think this was maybe not to have too many things plugged in at the one time as switch tripped cooker on & kettle or tv, as there was only a 2 ring cooker & no oven we still managed to cook in 2 evenings. Reception with free wifi or €20 per week in the apartment, we really liked our apartments 207 & 204, view of the sea from our 207 and would highly recommend these apartments but think we were on the idea floor & they accommodated our request to be quite close to each other.

The best thing about my stay was...

Location, apartments good & weather good apart from one day
