Why Collette O'Leary chose San Miguel de Abona
Tenerife is hot all year round. The Golf Del Sur is a lovely quite area with all the conveniences of a village. Winter Gardens is one of the nicest complexes there. We climbed every ladder on the building site before choosing. It has the best location.

Very good position but has some issues which have been referred to Owner.
Spacious, great position
Loved the apartment, great balcony, sunny aspect and good view. Apartment a little tired, bed hard but very clean and everything you would need provided.
Lovely situation but apartment poorly equipped & needs updating
The positives - the apartment is situated in a great area for access to shops and restaurants. The pool area is lovely and kept very clean. The negatives - the apartment is not adequately furnished/equipped - it is advertised to accommodate 8 - it may have beds for 8 but that’s about it! Although it doesn’t make any reference (or it didn’t when we went but I have since raised this so it might now have been amended) the only table provided for sitting and eating at - even though this is a self catering property - is a plastic table on the balcony which comfortably seats 4 - and 5 at a push! Not great if the weather is not nice - or if - as in our case - there are 7 of you! Also there were only 6 chairs on the balcony so even if the table had seated 7 only 5 of us could sit at any one time! Other disappointments were, as previously mentioned by someone else, only one set on keys provided - we were two families so really difficult as you require key to access pool area too (we subsequently requested another set and these were provided but no idea why not given initially!), shower leaked in second bathroom, bedroom door jammed and had to get locksmith out to let us out of the room after being stuck in for 5+ hours from 5am (despite this issue with the door apparently already being a known issue with one of the management team it hadn't been addressed!) - it was not a pleasant experience on our first night!, bath towels old & threadbare, mattresses very uncomfy, one tea towel provided for 7 of us in a weeks stay (requested and got more), not sufficient cutlery (5 forks!), crockery (eg 4 mugs of varying sizes and designs again for 7 of us!), glasses, etc. Could have been lovely but let down hugely for us by these things - made the owner aware of these on our return and response was far from satisfactory although hopefully issues have now been addressed to make someone else’s stay more enjoyable!
clean but basic
the towels were very flimsy and we had to go and buy 4 bath towels.
only having 1 set of keys was a problem as we had work out were to leave the keys when went to different locations. two sets of keys would have been helpful. Also the lock on the apartment door was well worn and it took some time to get the key to engage.
The beds were a bit lumpy. We only used the rooms for sleeping we ate out every day for b/fast and dinner but the kitchen did seem very well equipped.
Would definitely return
Amazing location. Well kept, spacious 3 bedroom apartment.
The resort is a nice resort, we was very disappointed in the property.
Unfortunately the property was not up to the standard that we expected for the value that we paid for the property. It was very worn and needed updating and decorating - we was advised to take our beach towels as bath towels where provided - the towels provided where old thin and discoloured. The property wasn't very clean on arrival and smelt. The property has no air con so we had to hire a air con unit. I had to buy glasses, utensils and tea towels as the owner / management agent hadn't supplied them for a self catering unit. I have a number of photos that I will supply to HomeAway.com in support of my review.
