We rented two apartments with Mountain views at the rear of the property. Perfection - private gardens but access to the pool steps away. The apartment is well furnished, beds comfortable, plenty of hot water (just a few minutes to arrive) and even a welcome food parcel. We loved the pool, the view, the location, the host and the ambiance - laid back and totally relaxed. San Diego apartmentos is situated on a fruit farm and the bananas and avocados were lush and we could literally help ourselves. There is so much to love.
We had the apartment 7, this was very clean and spacious. Everything you need was there. We stayed 2 weeks and the apartment was cleaned once in that period, towels changed, etc. Big thank to Maria, she is so diligent in all she does.
The apartment has a lovely terrace where we could eat and two lounge chairs and play area for our daughters (3 and 5 years old).
Location is quite remote, so you definitely need a car to be there, but once you arranged this, everything else is within reach. From the common / pool area it was a wonderful view on El Teide and the sunsets are really spectacular. Also nice views towards Puerto de la Cruz from the garden.
Good beds and large living area.
We especially liked the window shutters, that allow to make the room completely dark, very handy for a good night sleep.
The common area (pool) is well maintained and very nice, the pool is heated which is perfect (otherwise probably not easy to take a swim whenever you want).
We had been well informed before about the apartment, how to reach it, and also we received extensive info in english about surroundings, what do to in the area, restaurants, etc. Maybe an idea to have this info at hand also in the apartment (currently very limited info in english in the apartment the rest only in Spanish).
My wife and I had a lovely stay at San Diego Apartments. Rooms are really big and furnished with style, we also cooked a lot in the kitchen. There are private terraces with a nice view and very beautiful common area with wonderful pool and sitting area with fresh fruits. The owner Enrique and also the maid Maria were very friendly and helpful. Definitely one of our favorite things was location, it's really beautiful and secluded in nature, it feels really far away from the stereotypical Canary package tourist resorts, but if you feel like it, you are just a minutes car drive away from Puerto de la Cruz. Also, it is really close to El Bollullo - one of the most beautiful beaches in Tenerife and on the good starting point to explore the whole island.
We are really enjoying our stay here in apartment 7. The apartments are clean, stylish and have all the necessary amenities. The bedrooms are large and have built-in closets to stash everything. The living room and kitchen areas offer a lot of space to just hang out. The terrace is great, lots of space and with a table to eat outside. We are traveling with two kids and they love the pool. It’s a close drive to Puerto de la Cruz, Santa Cruz, El Teide, etc. all in all a good place to stay.
@Enrique: thanks for the things you left in the fridge upon arrival, it really made eating breakfast the next day much easier as we arrived quite late.
This place is great, owners and staff are lovely and the apartments are top notch. Really well kept, clean and well stocked with items for everything you need. Plenty of space in every room, good equipment for kids (2 year old). The view is stunning out to see and when weather is clear you can see El Tiede looming over you in the distance. We loved the "disco" tree outside our apartment at night, the pool area is fantastic, with lots of bananas for all, although the lizards like them too! The hammock is an unexpected holiday highlight. There were so many ways to make coffee in this apartment how could i resist some quality caffiene rushes. Safe and great for kids (had to move a couple of items for safety). Need a car for sure as its a little out the way (perfect) but not far to shops and local (wonderful) restaurants. The sooner you get here the sooner you will lose all your stress and be a happier person, a throughly wonderful holiday, if we return to Tenerife, we will be staying here, thanks again!
