ignore the bad review's St. George apartments were very clean, peacefull and enjoyable.
"After reading the review's my patner and I were a little worried about what was instore for us, no need to have worried though the place was a pleasure to stay in. The room was on the 2nd floor with pool and sea view, clean, peacefull and very very helpfull staff. Room service was regular and fresh towels every other day. The walk to the beach is only 5 mins away down hill and a steady incline back. Our only comlaint is that you do have to hire everything ie. iron, microwave, fan etc. lucky I packed our iron and we managed with out the microwave but I think it should be included with a self cat. hol. Great holiday and did not want to leave...."

"Just returned from Saint George Apartments and am left slightly disappointed but guess you get what you pay for. Whole place seemed deserted, no main bar just a pool bar open from 11 to 5. Described as short walk to beach but bit further than that and up a slight incline so not recommended for anyone with walking problems. We were allocated a ground floor apartment with patio doors, it was ok but it tired looking. On the second night as we were just about to go out we could not lock the door. We just caught reception as they about to close so we were given another room on ground floor but in the corner and down some stairs, it was so tiny and really hot and a bit like a basement room. During the night a phone and radio were stolen from the room. Next day we were moved again to the fourth floor which was much better, room had a proper door and felt much more secure. Beware if you are given one of the ground floor apartments, there are notices everywhere telling you to keep the patio doors locked even when you are inside so I suspect things have gone missing from rooms before. We had no problem with the staff but then we only saw 3 of them the whole time we were there and were very helpful."

St George Apartment
"Lovely place, basic but clean, beds hard to get comfy on if you have back trouble. No telly no microwave and very little in the way of kitchen equipment but we managed. Dont rent a telly as its expansive and no english channels on it. Dont rent a fan - you can buy one across the road for the price of a weeks' rental. Staff very friendly and helpful. - no rep on site at all. Reps are to be found in a hotel 20 mins walk away. Pool lovely and clean, quiet at night, Found supermarket easily and lots of ex-pats to get the best bargains from. All in all we had a really good time. "

Noisy at night
"I stayed at The St Georges Apartments with my Grandaughter . The reception and bar staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was basic the fridge was rusty on the outside and the shower tray kept overflowing when you showered so we had to put towels all around to stop the floor from getting flooded.The main bug bear was the noise at night from the Hotel opposite loud music,shouting and screaming. Also if you are unfortuate enough to have a middle floor apartment you will like us experience a high volume of noise from the apartments above especially when the residents arrive home early hours of the morning."

"A wonderful place to visit. Lovely apartments. Very friendly. Achilles and Emma are excellent hosts. Sam and George are very good barmen. Far enough away from the main road in Sidari to be a relaxing holiday but within easy reach to walk to enjoy the busy nighttime atmosphere. Ideal place for a base, whether you want to relax by the pool throughout your stay or go out on the many trips on offer from the many travel stores available. Definately a place to revisit."

"Booked the Saint George Apartments after reading reviews and being to Los Cristianos / Las Americas before but in different apartments. The Saint George Apartments were fantastically clean, simple, but nice rooms. There is a 5 minute walk down to the beach, and depending on which way you go a small hill, but it really doesn't matter at all. I'd reccomend them in a flash. It's quite nice that it's not used by many English tour operators (the Dutch seem to use it most). The apartments are next to a fairly busy road, but you don't really notice it when you're sitting round the pool. My only complaint is that the rooms were sooo hot at night without aircon!"

"just back from staying here.overbooking of original apartments put us here and i must say to a better location.yes there is a hill to go down to beach but if you explore round about there are easier ways to get around without having to come back up that hill.very clean .only downside we found arriving sat,sheets and towels changed sunday then again friday ,we were away on saturday! modern apartments not much room in shower tho!our apt very bare compared to some pictures ive seen.table & 4chairs,sofa-bed and sideboard lost in huge living area. bedroom plenty storage space. only one mirror .in the bathroom, not too handy if you needed to dry your hair when others needed to shower. a
couple of pictures would even have helped furnish the place ,there were hooks on the wall.pool bar was open monday -friday , even on the 2 days it rained .reception closes for 2 hrs in the afternoon 2-4. not very handy when you arrive at 3.20 and have to wait on someone appearing to give you keys. i would have said that was the worst thing about our stay there. not many brits there, a lot of scandinavian. and would imagine in summer there would definatly be a fight for sunbeds. i think what previous reports said about a supermarket i can only assume that is what is now a pilates club,and the indoor bar is still closed. all in all a nice place to stay and theres plenty going on within walking distance. we didnt use a taxi once. and dont miss a trip to loro park.book any trips at the booking office at the back of the vulcano hotel for the best prices. we checked out a few and they came up tops. also the strip of bars along that way are great any entertainment you want is there. we liked brahms and list best. their comperes robbie and j.c. are the best! hope you have a brill time."

"We stayed for 2 weeks in Aug, we were a party of 12 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 child we had a great time here. The only downside was that the pool bar was closed the whole 2 wks we were there and the onsite shop was closed too. But there was a supermarket which was just down the road and you are near plenty of bars and restaurants. You had it quiet if you wanted or lively. I recommend Garrys bar it is fab and also Odd Fellows the food and drink there is excellent and good value for money."

"Loved these apartments, they are so clean, staff friendly and lovely pool area.
Bit of a hill up to them but this just burned off the calories of all the junk food you eat on hols!
Absolutely gorgeous apts, everything in them, real big spacious rooms with plenty of space, balcony large with nice view.
A road runs by these but itâs not very loud traffic wise. Lots of nice shoe shops, restaurants in the area and real reasonable.
Went here in June 2005 to relax after a bad car crash found it the ideal apts to have gone to. Staff nice, but majority have little English. All the same though would definitely go back.
One fault - no TV in room and if you were lucky to get one there were no English channels."

An apartment complex with very friendly...
"An apartment complex with very friendly staff in a respectable part of Tenerife. The apartments have many good aspects to them but also have a few bad ones.
Good aspects: 1) friendly staff.
2) Large swimming pool with shallow end for children.
3) Very modern and spacious apartments.
4) Not extremely high rise.
5) Night security.
6) Pool side bar with food (snacks only).
Bad aspects: 1) Situated beside a main road.
2) Located on a hill, large for over 40's small for under 40's.
3) No nightly entertainment at night.
4) No day time entertainment.
These apartments are a very staff friendly complex with its own supermarket and large swimming pool. There is not much for young children but the complex is ideal if your looking for that relaxing location."
