Apartamentos Las Arenas
2 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Clean and new!
"I was shocked at how lovely my apartment was, after booking a cheap holiday. I was expecting a bit of basic and old, but it was newly refurbished and clean as could be! Every day a cleaner was in an i had new towels and sheets. They provided a lovely clean travel cot for my baby, and te reception were very helpful with their wifi.....Having previously lived in Gran Canaria i really wasnt expecting much, however i was wrong and the apartment was lovely. There was one downside, which was the noise from residents, a little loud come 11pm if u have a child, but if your a young party animal you won't have any worries!!!"

Do not go! First of all, do not believe...
"Do not go!
First of all, do not believe the photograph.The operator said it was a three star accommodation, however it has officially only one key and this "hotel" is certainly on the low end of this rating, which is as low as it goes.
The room was very dirty and the furniture battered and old. Bathroom was obviously from the 60's as the whole facility was built in 1968 and not very much re-furbished since.
The first thing we had to do was buy a bottle of bleach and clean the entire bathroom and kitchen as it was filthy and obviously not cleaned prior to our arrival.
The sheets and towels were clean. The icing on the cake were the two dead cockroaches, one behind the curtain to the terrace and the other on the bathroom floor, there were further 3 dead cockroaches in the corridor leading to the room and remained there for two more days after our arrival.
During our one week stay the room was not cleaned once, even though it was supposed to be and the towels were changed 3 times.
The area of the Kasbah Centre is extremely noisy at night due to the night-clubs based here and sleeping without earplugs would be impossible even with the doors to the terrace shut.
Overall it was shocking, never again!"
