Awesome place to stay, near the downtown, very accesible and secure. The room was very clean and fully equiped, including a nice terrace with full ocean and sunset view. Customer sevice could be better, national tourists should be treated equally as the foreigners.

everything was perfect for me. I enjoyed the tranquility, the silence, because I am a writer. It was often warm ''caliente''outside, well, I have used only one climatization. It was enough. The view was fantastic. I would suggest to have screen in the windoes

We were surprised by the nice view in the first morning when we opened the blinds. The rooftop balcony is incredible. The moon and the stars over the ocean are over the top. It is also easy access to everything Las Palmas has to offer and the beach. We saw monkeys at dusk on the pass to the beach many times. One thing though, in order to get this view in the unit, you do have to walk a lot of stairs up. This is the second time we stayed at Coco's Sunset Hill. This one is far better being on the top floor. Highly recommend if you can get the top floor unit. We loved our stay.

We visited this place for our anniversary and wanted to really get the feel of the culture and not stay at the ritzy resorts. So we rented a suv which would have been cheap but the insurance was the same price the rental was and that was at the middle level, that was offered. But any hoo... The staff is friendly and there at normal business hours for you! The place overall conditions are not the best but are good for the price, some units have no hot water some do. The wifi only works at one pool that is by the gravel lot, not inside or at every pool, so you will be sitting outside checking email or doing any sort of business affairs which includes talking on the phone by wifi. We did check out other places similar to this one, but wasn't as nice with no pools. The place was about two blocks from Coco Beach, which the Beach has volcanic sand, and has a lot of nature debris on it, and it is pitch black at night. If you are a walker, it is about 20 minutes to walk to the main strip of CoCo where all the bars and restaurants are located. The place has good security and we felt secure, so you shouldn't have anything to worry about because they do walk the premises and there is a gate guard on the front gate. I am partially disabled to walking, so if you have in your party someone who has issues walking or going up steps and hills, this is NOT the place for you. The parking is at an angle and there are about 4 to 5 steps on the first level and 2 flights for the second level and Lord knows how many on the 3rd floor apartment.

This place is not located exactly nearby the main restaurants nor bars but that gives this place a really nice and quiet place to stay.The place is very well equipped and security is something you shouldn't have to worry about.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days I will outline the pros and cons. It really depends what you are looking for and your travel goals. We simply wanted a place to be able to cook some meals and crash at night while being comfortable and safe. PROS: -walking distance to Coco Beach and main stip ( 15-20min walk)- lots of shops and places to eat. - employees are friendly ( people working at the front desk speak english well) - were able to get clean beach towels daily from front desk - plenty of pools to choose from . never felt over crowded as there are 6 to choose from - AMAZING view of the sunset - we felt safe. they have 24/7 security guards at main entrance. in room safes as well. - beds were decent CONS: -if you are unable to walk don't stay here. no elevators and its all uphill pretty much. being young and fit this didn't bother me. - there is not maid service regularly. you have to ask for products if you run out ( ie garbage and you have to take your garbage out ) - they do not leave you with the basics even though i am sure people do leave things behind ( ie coffee filters) they do however provide a few mugs , plates and utensils. - we had an ant problem in our shower which required us having to constantly spray raid down the drain to kill them - "FREE WI-FI" is only available at one pool and the front desk. the signal was hit and miss at these areas. - I was a bit thrown off when i saw that Locals either rented or owned some units - we never had an issue with this - but it is something tourists should be made aware of. Overall it is a decent place if you are looking for a place to just crash , but if you are looking for luxurious you will need to go to an all inclusive resort.

Cooking utensils are limited. Stairs are steep and have no railings for safety. WiFiis good.Distance from beach and local stores is daunting for mobility impaired guests. Rooftop terrace is unnecessary as it is too hot to enjoy and the steep unlit stairs are dangerous to use. Bedrooms have no drawers only a few shelves in the closet.

The staff is always there for you! General conditions, however, are not that good. Some apartments need renovation. This being said, definitely one of the best places to stay at Coco Beach. Beach has volcanic sand, and are definitely not clean.
