We recently stayed in a cottage in Torquay in Devon, which he really enjoyed.  The cottage was in a great location for getting to the beach and also other amenities such as restaurants and a pub. The cottage had clearly been refurbished recently as the standard of the decor was very high and the cottage was very comfortable.  It really was like a home from home! The sofas and the beds were very comfortable. We were particularly impressed by the fast wifi broadband. The kitchen was very well equipped and included a washing machine and dishwasher. We travelled as a family of 2 adults and 2 children and we booked through Karen from Holidays4U as a celebration for my husband’s 40th birthday. The booking process was very straightforward and easy. We came in one car, but there would have been room to park 2 cars if needed. We were also lucky with the weather and were able to spend several days at the beach, which our children loved. Most days we went to Meadfoot Beach.  This cottage is also dog friendly. The owners allow a total of 2 pets.  It’s lucy as we have a labrador and a cockapoo. The owners also left us a welcome pack which was a nice touch.  It meant we could relax and have a drink on arrival, before having to worry about going shopping. We were travelling from the North of England, so we didn’t arrive until late. Because it was my husband’s birthday celebration we went out one night to Memories Bistro, which is in St Marychurch. The food was amazing and I can highly recommend it.  But as we have been to Torquay many time, we knew it would be important to book several weeks in advance.

Reviews Torquay Cottages

Although only a small little studio, we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. It felt like having a room in a large villa. The original features were stunning especially the entrance hallway and staircase. The garden was very large and well maintained. We will definitely return again. We booked through Karen from Holidays 4U, who was very efficient in dealing with our enquiry. We originally enquired about a different property which was not available, and Karen emailed a list of suggestions and alternatives. We really enjoyed the area of Wellswood. It has a lovely selection of restaurants. There was also a wonderful little cafe which was part of a pattiserie. They also sell lovely chocolates. The nearest beach to where we were staying was Meadfoot Beach. It was great to walk along the sea front and watch the sea lap against the sea wall. The beach is very family friendly. But be aware that if you walk down the steps from the sea wall to the sand below, you need to watch the tide very carefully. We walked around the corner and we almost got trapped as we didn’t notice the sea was coming in. Luckily a diver walking past warned us. By the time we got back to the steps, the water was covering the sand by about one foot.  As it wasn’t too rough we were able to wade in, to reach the steps and to safety. Another day we visited Kents Cavern, which I would definitely recommend. A little further afield, Babbacombe Model Village is also worth visiting and Bygone Days where you can walk through Victorian streets and look in the shop windows to see all the produce and products that would have been sold in the day. It’s quite amazing to see how old some of our famous brands are!

Reviews Benimar Apartments

We have been to Tenerife many many times. But this last holiday has been the best yet. The apartment was as described. Pure luxury! First to describe the location, the complex is set back a little, but the right side of the motorway. It is equi-distant from Fanabe Playa and Del Duque Playa, so in that sense it is very well located. The complex is quiet and peaceful, so if that is what you need, then you can’t go wrong. If you want luxury then I can highly recommend this apartment. It has all the extra. There is wifi internet access, satellite TV with lots of international channels including English, air conditioning, and top brand appliances in the kitchen. We paid a small deposit and the balance had to be paid on arrival. People talk a lot these days about guarantee from fraud. But really this is the simplest guarantee. What could be better than only paying the majority of the money at the point that you see the apartment?  We booked through Karen from Holidays 4U and would definitely re-book this apartment if it is available next time we want to book our holiday to Tenerife. I travelled with my wife, my sister and her husband, so the double beds in each bedroom were perfect for us. It was also great that there were 2 bathrooms. The balcony was great. It was very large with good quality patio furniture, including a patio table and chairs and sun loungers. The balcony overlooked the pool, so it was nice to sit out as the view was good.

Reviews Parque Santiago Tenerife

We have just returned from a lovely holiday on the Parque Santiago I complex. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday which we booked through Karen Durant from Karen booked a duplex one bedroom apartment on Parque Santiago I. Although it didn’t really have a sea or pool view, it was very comfortable and clean. The complex is very well maintained with a lovely pool area. Getting a sun lounger was sometimes a challenge though. As the complex was on the sea front, it was very conveniently located.  The beach was a short walk, as well as restaurants and bars. We did hear a bit of music a night, but it didn’t bother us as we came to Tenerife to enjoy our holiday. The only slight niggle was that there were no lifts to the 3rd floor, so it was a bit of a trek. But as we are in our 40s, we didn’t really have a problem with it as such.  It was just a bit tiring in the heat to climb all those steps.  Not so difficult coming down of course. It’s best to book early as we did, as the privately owned apartment can vary in price quite a lot. Karen told us the owners set the prices, so it doesn’t always follow that a more expensive apartment will be nicer. So we looked carefully at all the available options and looked at the photos on the website, compared the prices and made our decision.  We will be booking a return visit with Karen in the near future and would definitely recommend this holiday and her services to other guests.

Reviews Palm Mar Apartments

We travelled as  couple and we are in our 60s. We were looking for a holiday with peace and quiet, so Palm Mar definitely fits the bill. If you are coming to Tenerife for the nightlife, you won’t want to stay here. We stayed for 2 weeks in a one bedroom apartment on San Remo, which we booked through Karen from Holidays 4U. She recommended this complex as it is very modern (she told us it is only 6 years old!). We were not disappointed. The apartment was lovely and just as we were expecting from the photos on the website. It was quite spacious also and very clean. There was a double balcony off the lounge and bedroom which enjoyed panoramic views.  A patio table and chairs was provided for alfresco dining, but there was also a lovely sofa with mosquito net. It was lovely to sit and relax on the balcony in the evening with a gin and tonic, to watch the ocean and the setting sun. The TV complex on the complex was very good. There were plenty of English channels. There was also good wifi internet access. We hired a car which I would recommend if staying in Palm Mar. I was a bit surprised how hard it was to park though, for a supposedly quiet resort. It was very convenient for walking to the beach, as it only took 5 minutes. We did that most days. The pool area was very nice also, and the pool very clean. It was not crowded at all around the pool, so it was easy to get sun loungers.

Reviews El Camison Townhouses

Location location location! The 3 most important factors in a holiday.  We booked a three bedroom townhouse through Karen Durant from Holidays 4U. It is just on the border of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas and is there in the perfect position. It is also close to the sea front and Las Vistas beach. You can therefore walk along the sea front promenade in either direction to the centre of Los Cristianos or to the posh part of Playa de las Americas, where all the top restaurants, bars and shops can be found. There is also a fantastic supermarket very close by, called the Mercadona. The fresh fish here is particularly good. The complex itself has a pool which is shared. The terrace faced towards the inside of the complex and was well equipped with patio table and chairs as well as reclining chairs. There was even a washing machine under a covered part of the terrace.  The stone barbeque was also fantastic. It was our favourite thing to buy some fresh prawns with shell on, from the Mercadona and to cook them on the barbeque for our evening meal.  The fish is so fresh that it is even labelled with the time when it was caught! The townhouse was spotlessly clean when we arrived. We loved the decor, being slightly rustic and seemly more in keeping with a local style, rather than just being a copy of every modern apartment these days.  It was a bit more individual, which was nice. In our opinion this townhouse would be ideal for a large family, as it actually has beds for 8 people. The bedroom on the top floor is very large with a double and 2 single beds in it.

Villa Reviews Callao Salvaje

We have just spent a brilliant 2 weeks in Callao Salvaje Tenerife. We booked a three bedroom villa through Karen from Holidays 4U.  We were met on arrival by a very nice local lady who spoke very good English and showed us around the villa. A generous welcome pack had been provided which even included a bottle of prosecco. We really appreciated that. The weather was very hot, so we were relieved to find out that the villa had air conditioning throughout. We travelled as  family of 6 (2 parents and 4 children), so the villa was a perfect size for us. Our children adored playing and swimming in the pool.  There is a Lidl in Callao Salvaje now, which wasn’t there on our last visit. So we did a lot of shopping there and cooked our own meals most days. But we did go out and sample some of the fine restaurants on a couple of occasions. With a large family, it can be costly to do this every night. We hired a car, which was handy and the parking was very easy outside the villa, as it is situated in  residential area. We drove to Siam Park for a day out once during the holiday, which the children really enjoyed. They tell me this was the highlight of the holiday. We felt the villa was very spacious, and very clean when we arrived. The kitchen was very well equipped with the usual appliances that you would expect in a villa, such as a diswasher, washing machine, oven, tall fridge/freezer etc. There was even a water filter for drinking water.

This was our second holiday in Los Cristianos. We prefer it to Las Americas as it is more of a family friendly resort. We prefer to stay away from the Veronicas Strip if at all possible. We travelled as a family of 5 people. The apartment suited us perfectly as there was a double bed in the master bedroom for my husband and I, and the 2nd bedroom had 2 single beds which our twin boys had and our older daughter had the single room. We booked the apartment through Karen from We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would definitely return to this apartment and this resort again. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival and the towels were arranged in the shape of swans.  Our children were very impressed by that. The complex itself is very close to the sea front, over the road from the Arona Gran.  So everything we could need was close by, including restaurants, bars and supermarkets. We certainly didn’t need a car. That was what we wanted on this holiday: to be able to relax without having to drive anywhere.  Not that I do any of the driving anyway. I find the roads in Tenerife, especially the motorway, to be a bit of  a challenge, so I leave the driving up to my husband. It was a quiet complex, which suited us. There were only a few people around the pool when we were there. The balcony enjoyed a view over the pool.  It was nice to sit out in the evening with a gin and tonic.

Review Malibu Park Apartments

We have just returned from our second holiday on Malibu Park. This time we booked a studio, which we got through Karen from Holidays 4U.  She recommended the studio in particular as it has just undergone a full refurbishment and it really was lovely inside. The staff were very friendly.  The pool bar, called the Splash Bar, serves great food and drink and is very reasonably priced. The apartment was well equipped and the linen and towels provided were of good quality. The pool area is nice and there are life guards on duty. There are plenty of sun loungers, so you don’t have to rush or reserve them, like on some complexes. Also the life guards are very helpful with moving them as necessary. I would have to point out though that the complex is across the motorway and in quite a hilly area. So it wouldn’t be suitable for anyone with mobility problems. But it wasn’t a problem for us. We were also very lucky with the weather during our stay. There is a mercadona supermarket as well as an Iceland, which are only a short walk from the complex. It is also close to Siam Mall, which is very good for shopping. And of course it is also a short walk to Siam Park.  Aqualand Water Park is just opposite.  We visited Siam Park and Aqualand during our holiday.  It was great fun. There is also free wifi internet access available on the complex.  We will definitely be returning to this complex for our next holiday, providing we can find a privately owned apartment which is available. We prefer to book one of the private ones as they tend to be better equipped when it comes to cooking utensils, pots and pans etc.

Reviews Altamira Apartments

I have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Tenerife. I stayed on the Altamira complex with my partner.  We chose this complex as we used to holiday here around 10 years ago, but because of family health issues we hadn’t returned until this month. We were not disappointed, the complex is still as lovely as ever and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. We booked through Karen Durant from Holidays 4U. The apartment was privately owned. It was on the 3rd floor and enjoyed amazing sea and pool views.  I would say the view was one of the best on the complex. The only way to better it would be to be on a higher floor. The complex is well maintained and there are 3 pools. There is also a restaurant which serves very good food.  It is nice to walk along the promenade, as the complex is right on the sea front. In just a few minutes you reach Playa del Duque. In my opinion this is one of the beaches on the island. There are sun loungers and sun umbrellas which you can hire, but the beach is not big and never over crowded.  The arrangement with the wifi was a bit strange. You have to ask for the password every day as it changes. It wasn’t even very fast, so it could be a bit frustrating. But as I have a smart phone, I was able to use the wifi hotspot on my phone instead, which was a lot better. I am with Vodafone and they only charge £3 per day so you can use the data on your bundle.
