Well. What can I say about this wee gem of a place. Wasn't sure what to expect as I went by reviews when I booked it. Was important that we had an amazing holiday as it was my first with the kids for years. Self catering apartment about 30 minutes from the airport. 3 bedrooms , living room, kitchen and...

My wife and I rented a two bedroom apartment at the Sombrero and found it very satisfactory. The apartment was very large, lounge and kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms. The balcony was large as well, plenty of room for table and chairs. A lot of steps everywhere made it difficult for me with a dodgy knee but we got by. The...

We've been to Los Gigantes several times, in the big hotel and in a private rented apartment. We knew El Sombrero apartments were there in an ideal location, but we didn't know which travel company used them. So, when I got an email from Thomas Cook offering these apartments at a very reasonable rate we thought it would be rude...

Booked a week in late February and we were pleased with our choice. The apartments are well located, just on the edge of the commercial area which is just a few minutes walk away. The marina is about a 10 minute walk. The apartments are up an incline but not as much as some reviewers suggested. Los gigantes is hilly...

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of February. The apartment is clean, comfortable and very spacious. We usually stay in a hotel, but enjoyed self catering as Los Gigantes has some good bars and restaurants. We loved the peaceful friendly atmosphere of the apartments and the resort. The Tipsy Terrace just opposite is a great place to...

Stayed here for a week at the end of February. Although you have lots of steps to get to your apartment the location of the apartments were excellent. The room was large enough with a separate kitchen and bathroom. There was a safe in the room, which you have to hire at a cost and optional TV for hire. Rooms...

My husband, daughter + I stayed in the El Sombrero February half term for a week 2017. There are plenty of steps up to each apartment + to the pool area. The whole of Los Gigantes is on a hillside. It's a small resort overall + we noticed a lot of older people around. The hotel is basic but adequate....

Good apartments in a great location. Well equipped kitchen, electric cooker and hob, toaster and kettle. Could cook a full meal if you really wanted to (not that I did!) Numerous restaurants within easy walking distance but book in advance as they get very busy. Bus stop almost opposite apartments can easily get to other places in Tenerife. Swimming pool...

Good hotel, clean, basic but what we needed for our short stay. Room were large enough. Location is excellent. Only down side is that it is next to the hill that the buses/cars come up and down from. Staff were very friendly

We visited Los Gigantes at the end of January.This was our first visit to Tenerife, but won't be our last. The apartments were perfect for us, clean and comfortable, and extremely well furnished and maintained.The staff were friendly and efficient, the pool area was busy, but not overly so. The complex is in a great position, not too far from...
