25 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"Here now in Costa Mar apartment Los Cristiano. .room 46..sockets hanging off the walls, cupboards that look like they came from the 1940's, no TV, no iron,towels that are that thin you can see through them,no washing machine all in all a total disgrace,found a dead cockroach on floor when we came up from the pool...booked this through booking .com the review and description they gave were a total pack of lies.I for one will not be using them again ...the only plus side was the view."

"We have stayed at the Costamar and we have found it to be very basic ( in the hotel owned rooms ) but the views are stunning , we rented a private room in the Costamar for four weeks in January 2015 and it had everything that we needed so it was like a home from home , even thou the other rooms that we stayed in was very basic it doesn't cost very much to rent a TV or even better still take a DVD player or iPad with films already on it , we have booked for January 2016 and are looking forward to our holiday , yeah it may be basic but you only sleep there , you know the saying you get what you pay for , our rooms were cleaned every day with fresh bedding and towels and the staff were very polite , they have recently had work done to both pools ( Adult and Children) and we watched the work as it progressed and the workers have done a great job finishing them and you can lay around the grounds on a sun bed as you catch the sun from the moment it gets up to when it goes down "

"Very basic. Dont believe they have a swimming pool, it has not been used for about three years. Reasonable location with some pleasant views of the sea and mountains"

BASIC BUT CLEAN
"Just arrived back from staying in The Costa Mar for 2 weeks. Originally we were given floor 13 but we didn't like heights and changed to floor 6. room number 63. In all fairness it was clean, the 2 beds were good but the settee in living room was not very good. Had to hire the tv. 15 euros a week but better than paying by the hour.Just over the road were about 6/8 bars with food. We tried a few but a small restaurant named Rumours was excellent."

beware of thieves
"we stayed at the costa mar begining of june appartment was as expected very basic but clean. we were on 13th floor room 135 the views were excellent the harbour side w0uld have been even better.was a very good psition as it was quite not to far if you wanted more night life but plenty of bars and plenty of places to eat good food.Perhaps for me alitle to english only there for a cheap getaway though weather was warm and pleasnt spme sun and a litle cloud at times,very nice.Was not aware of the nudist part till we went a walk strange that they were all men im not a prude but found it a bit stange.Please be aware of thieves as my bag was lifted from right beside me on the beach money and cards gone half a day at the police station filled with other unfortunates so be beware.But we did have agood time if you sty here as long as you know this is a basic apatment you wont be dissopointed."

Holiday in Paradise
"We stayed at a privately owned apartment at Costamar which had been updated and improved. There is a fifeteen story main block but our apartment was in one of the three story blocks. We had the one on the end overlooking the beach and harbour with wonderful views. The three weeks we were there the weather was lovely with temps reaching thirty degrees which in February is great. Everything on hand including an Iceland store with English staff, an English doctor 5mins walk with a chemist next door. Plenty of places to eat and drink and the prices are excellent, however always check your being charged correctly and check your change. We bought a camera card from a local Asian shop near the doctors and he tried to charge us 58 euros, they normally cost 5 pounds."

"This is a very old block of apartments. But in my opinion it had the best position along the beach. The views from the pool area out across the harbour were just stunning. The Pool bar had friendly staff, and there were plenty of loungers around the pool and palm trees for shade. There are lots of restaurants and supermarkets just outside the block and an easy walk into town. In my view this block has an idillic situation. I stayed in apartment No.41. Privately owned with everything you needed. Excellent bedlinen and kitchen equipment. TV with BBC channels, so a real home from home. There was also a sunny balcony with uninterrupted views of the sea. I'm definitely going back to spend more time there after Christmas. And I feel sorry for the people who had to rent the lower standard of accommodation because in my opinion they were just unlucky."

"ese ap We have just arrived back from these apartments, and oh my god, i read the other reviews on these apartments before leaving, for our hoilday and thort, you dont really no until you try. Well believe me i wish i had took notice of the reviews. If anyone out there is thinking of booking these apartments please dont, they are discussing, in very bad need of refurb. The bed settee that my daughter had to sleep on was full of stains, you had to see it to believe it, the patio door did not lock, the bathroom was also a disgrace, they are very very basic believe me. The one and only good thing about these apartments, is that there is a resturant called rumours across the road and the couple that run this bar are lovely, and the food is excellent, "
