Just back from a week in Tenerife last week in November. Weather was fantastic 22-24 degrees.
Studio is very stylish with modern contemporary furnishings, beautifully kept. It is in a very quiet area so you can get plenty of rest time. The large balcony with sun for hours each day was great. Great shower and english channels on tv. A total plus was the heated swimming pool, make the most of it. The pool area is wonderful, plenty of sunbeds and space. The water machine at the pool is only 50c for 5 ltrs of drinking water and saves carrying it distances. Our host, Cristina, was so very helpful and arranged our airport transfers as our arrival was very late evening. A great help when arriving. Thanks Cristina.
Nearest supermarket is just down around a corner and try the fresh croissants in the morning. We hired a car very close by for €40 for 24 hours to go for a drive, includes all insurance and taxes.
This was our first time in Tenerife and we hadn't expected the area to be so spread out. It is very built up, although beautifully kept. As it has many hills you really do need to be able to walk down and up hills daily. It is about a 30 minute walk down to the main town. We did this each day and if we needed to go back in the evening we would get a taxi at a cost of approx €5-€7 depending on how far you want to travel across Los Cristianos and Las Americas. Lots of restaurants near the studio. Taurus steak house is lovely. In Las Americas across from the Hard Rock Cafe is Mama Mia and the lasagne there was fantastic (not the Mama Mia close to studio, that wasn't great). We ate in one of the small sports pubs near by and it was dreadful, avoid those. We had a fabulous hot breakfast in the shopping centre Oliver Garden. Very little real band music in the area, which we missed. Mainly backing tracks with different singers nightly.
We had a very enjoyable energetic week.
Our stay in the apartment was from 2nd November to 23 November 2018. It was our first holiday in Tenerife & we spent a long time deciding what resort to stay in & which apartment to book. It was a good choice & we spent 3 very enjoyable weeks in this Los Cristianos apartment.
The apartment is situated in quite an elevated position which means the views are great. Being away from the beach/promenade area it is relatively quiet & we were not bothered unduly by nighttime noises.
The apartment is above the Port Royale reception area.It is very easy to find within the complex & is not far from the communal swimming pool.It is well equipped with TV/DVD (incl UK channels),Cooker,microwave,toaster etc.There is also an iron,hair dryer & vacuum cleaner.There are 2 bedrooms,one of which is ensuite & the other has provision to sleep 4 people although it would be a squeeze.There are 2 air con units,1 in the lounge area & 1 in the main bedroom.The lounge unit worked fine,we didn't need to use the bedroom air con.The overall appearance of the interior is good.We were told that the kitchen will be replaced at some time which will make a big difference.The water pressure is very good but don't drink it,use bottled water. You can fill up water bottles from a dispenser near the swimming pool for only 10c a litre.The outside space is superb with lots of space & 4 loungers,parasol,large stone table with seating & 2 single & 1 double patio chairs.The sun starts to hit the patio mid morning in November & gives you lovely sunset views.
The location of Port Royale does mean there are some pretty steep hills to climb back up to the apartment from the beach/promenade areas.We must have done the climb at least 24 times but you can get a taxi if necessary.It takes about 10 minutes to walk down to the beach/promenade.On the way down are many bars/restaurants to choose from & this continues when you get down to the promenade.You can eat cheaply or expensively.We did both & we were never disappointed with any of the meals/snacks or drinks we had.Walking along the promenade Las Americas is not too far.Further along is Adeje,well worth a visit as is La Caleta.A trip to Las Galetas is also recommended.All of these places can be easily reached by using local buses.The bus station is only a 10 minute walk away & the fares are very reasonable.
Overall then a very enjoyable holiday.The apartment is functional with many pluses & just a few niggles none of which spoilt our stay.
