Vamos a los mercados

... fruit... Lazing by the pool, we topped up our tan and I even managed to get sunburnt feet! Although cold, the pool was a welcome place to cool-off.

Soaking up every last ray of sunshine, we didn't head to dinner until 8.30pm and walked along the gorgeous water front, back to Playa Cucharas for my birthday dinner - the waiter treated me to a sparkler in my drink (just like at Valentines haha). Our last day ...

Sun and sangrias

... large, a second table was required, just for the plate! Rolling our bellies down the hill, we head to the Island Bar, for a live music night. The owner Cara and her husband Rory, are friends with my cousin, and Rory has us clapping and cheering all night long with his very entertaining music. We met the coolest taxi driver on the ride home, who complemented my (drunken) Spanish, and told us how the water, electricity and petrol plants are side-by-side, so if one goes... they all do!

Day 12: This. Is. IRONMAN.

... using the chairs. But it was only 6 euros a person for the whole day. Which was not bad at all considering the umbrella was our only escape from the blistering hot sun. We hung out there for a few hours bathing in the sun and even took turns going in the water. The ocean was crystal clear and the softest sand, it was beyond amazing. Then Em had to run some protein filled water bottles to the special drop station and said she'd be back in an hour. ...

Day 11: Bring On The Sun

A travel blog entry by flahivemo

... a LONG day. And I'm not even doing the race so I can't image how those people are gonna survive. Em and I are taking the 6am bus over the to beach to watch the start of the race and then won't be able to come back until about 11pm. Really hoping the sun is at least out for a little bit, but at the same time for the sake of all the racers I hope it's mostly overcast. I will definitely be napping on the beach a lot tomorrow. And maybe getting a little ...

... and then I didn't remember "verde" meant green so I kept pushing the wrong button. All those years of Spanish and didn't even remember my colors. Whoops.
Enjoyed a fine array of salami, cheese and crackers while watching the iron man parade process through the hotel. The parade was led by this all female drum line and they were thee most lively group! It was a very very cool experience to see. Just kickin' it all day tomorrow, really hoping the sun decides to come ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BelleVue Aquarius Puerto Del Carmen

    Great location

    from

    arrived at the side entrance and wasn't happy with first impression, but seeing the pool and bar area we were happier, reception staff were helpful and when contacting them for more bed linen etc, they always provided them rooms were basic but clean. The appartments are situated just behind the harbour part of Puerto Del Carmen in the "old town" which is very picturesque request a first floor room and you have a loveley sea view and private balcony . One draw back is the icy pool. Would definately go back

    ¡1 estrella es ser muy generosos!

    from

    Reservamos por medio de nuestro tiempo compartido - una perdida de tiempo. Nos habían dicho que era un 3 estrellas (no era un problema ya que, de todas maneras, queríamos una semana barata) - a nuestra llegada vimos el señalamiento de 1 estrella en el hotel. Y aún dudaría el si se merece la clasificación de ¡1 estrella! La piscina estaba sucia (la pintura desconchada, sucia, moscas, etc. flotando y en el fondo), ¡ni siquiera dejaría que mi perro nadara allí! Después cerraron la piscina y la vaciaron (sin aviso). Estaban dándole mantenimiento y pintando (todos los trabajadores cantando, gritando, con golpes fuertes, a las 8 a.m.) - de nuevo, ¡sin aviso! El personal era muy agradable, aunque parece ser un hotel alemán (¡hasta el bingo era en alemán!). El área alrededor del hotel es excelente, mayormente eran españoles de vacaciones, no había borrachos y un bar irlandés desperdigado. El bar San Miguel es fantástico en los fines de semana, y el asador es fenomenal, ¡tanto para bistécs como para mariscos!

    Nicht so gut wie erwartet

    from

    Wir sind dorthin zusammen mit zwei Kleinkindern im Alter von 2 und 3 Jahren gereist. Der Pool war zu tief und es gab keinen Baby-Pool, nur einen Pool für Kinder über 3 Jahre. Das Essen im Komplex war nicht gut, hat sich für Kinder nicht geeignet. Keine Familienunerhaltung im Komplex, ich hatte eine Kinder-Nacht erwartet, Discos usw., aber es gab nichts für sie.

    Wert für Geld

    from

    Komme gerade von einem Wochenende zusammen mit meiner Frau im Aparthotel Aquarius zurück. Das Hotel liegt sehr bequem in der Nähe der Altstadt von Puero Del Carmen (5 min Gehentfernung), wo es keinen Mangel an Bars und Restaurants gibt. Das Apartment war okay und wir hatten einen Ofen, Mikrowelle, Kochkessel und ausreichend Geschirr und Töpfe usw. (obwohl wir sie alle gar nicht nutzten). Die Apartments haben ein separates Schlafzimmer mit Einzelbetten, aber ich fand, dass die Matraze etwas unkomfortabel war. Das Badezimmer ist auch separat und verfügte über eine Grundausstattung mit einer Wanne/Dusche. Im Wohnzimmer gab es einen Fernseher, aber es schien, dass es keinen Fernsehempfang gab. Das war kein Problem für uns, da wir kein Interesse hatten, fern zu sehen. Im Apartment gibt es keine Klimaanlage, aber einen Deckenventilator über den Betten und im Wohnzimmer. Das Frühstück war im Zimmerpreis beinhaltet, und es war für jeden etwas dabei (Zerealien, Wurstaufschnitt, Käse, Brot, Joghurt, Früchte, Spiegel- und Rühreier, Schinken, Würstchen, Säfte, Tee, Kaffee usw.). Alle Apartments scheinen etwas Meeresblick zu haben, aber die beste Aussicht hatte man wohl in den oberen Etagen und über der Rezeption, was aber für einige Gäste ein Problem sein könnte. Unsere Betten wurden jeden Tag gemacht, und es wurden auch saubere Handtücher gebracht. Der Pool ist groß und sauber mit viel Platz für Liegestühle. Diese waren komfortabel und nicht hart, wie die Kunststoffliegen. Der Hauptpool eignet sich nicht für Nichtschwimmer, da die Tiefe 1,75 bis 2 Meter beträgt, ist aber gut für Schwimmer geeignet, da er entsprechend groß ist. Es gibt einen separaten Pool für Kinder, und dort ist den ganzen Tag ein Rettungsschwimmer anwesend. Die Bar am Pool ist gut ausgestattet und Snacks stehen auch zur Verfügung. Alles in allem, eine gute Lage für die Altstadt, einfaches Apartment, aber ein guter Pool, für den Preis würde ich mich nicht beschweren.

    Not as good as expected

    from

    We travelled over there with 2 young children ages 2 and 3, the pool was too deep and there was no baby pool, only a pool for over 3 yr olds. food in complex was not nice, did not cater very well for children.

    No family entertainment on complex, i was expecting a kiddies night, discos etc but there was nothing for them.

    Value for money

    from

    Just back from a week in the Aparthotel Aquarius with my wife. The hotel is very convenient to the old town of Puerto Del Carmen ( 5 mins walk ) where there is no shortage of bars and restaurants. The apartment was ok and we had a cooker, microwave, kettle, and plenty of cutlery pots/pans etc ( although all were unused by ourselves ). The apartments have a separate bedroom with twin beds but I found the matresses a bit uncomfortable. The bathroom is also separate and fairly basic with a bath/shower. In the seating area there was a TV but we appeared to have no reception, not a problem for us as we had no interest in looking at it. There is no air con. in the apartments but there is a ceiling fan above the beds and seating area. Breakfast was included in our deal and there is something there for everyone ( cereals, cold meats, cheeses, bread, yoghurt, fruit and fried/scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, juices, tea, coffee etc ). All the apartments appear to have a bit of a sea view but the best views would be on the upper levels and above the reception area, but the higher up you go then the more steps you need to negotiate and this could be a problem for some. Our beds were made every day and clean towels supplied. The pool is large and clean with a lots of room for loungers and these were comfortable and not the hard plastic type. The main pool would not suit non swimmers as the depth is from 1.75 to 2.0 metres, but good for swimmers as it is a good size. There is a separate kids pool and there is a lifeguard on duty all day. The poolside bar is well stocked and snacks are available. To summarise, good location for old town, basic apartment but good pool area, for the price I couldn't complain.

    1* is too generous!!!!!

    from

    We booked this via our timeshare - waste of our time. we were told it is 3* (not a problem as we wanted a cheap week away) - on arrival we saw the 1* sign on the hotel. And I would question if it even deserved a 1* rating!!! Pool was filthy (paint peeled off, dirt, flies etc floating and at the botton), I would not even let my dog swim in it!!! Then they closed the pool and drained it (without warning). Painting and maintenence work was going on (all workmen singing shouting loud banging at 8am) - again no warning!! Staff were very pleasant, although it seems to be a German hotel (even bingo was in german!!). Area around hotel is excellent, mostly spanish on holiday no lager louts and only the odd irish bar. Sa miguel bar is great on weekends and the steakhouse is amazing for both steak and seafood!!

    Sea

    from

    WE booked these apartments as a last minute deal on the THOMAS COOK web site and were not let down.The apartments are well maintained and are cleaned out daily(apart from THURSDAYS AND SUNDAYS).There are however a few steps to the higher apartments but once you are up them it is mainly flat.All the rooms have sea views and are well equipped with electrical appliances.ie microwave,toaster,kettle etc.The old town is 2 mins away with plenty of nice restaurants and some nice bars.The new town is 10 mins with plenty of night life and restaurants aswell.All in all something for everyone.Would definately go again to same place
