Expert review of Poblado Marinero

Top value-for-money self-catering apartments, in the best location in Los Gigantes.

In their enviable position right on the marina, the Poblado Marinero are a mix of privately owned and holiday rental apartments with lots of character. Situated on the lowest level of the resort, everywhere is a walk uphill but compared to the near-vertical position of much of the resort’s accommodation, shops, bars and restaurants can be accessed without the aid of crampons.

Location: 

Directly behind the lovely yacht marina of Los Gigantes where you can go on whale- and dolphin-watching trips. The apartments are behind a row of restaurants which line the marina and are opposite the El Laguillo swimming-pool complex.

Bedrooms: 

The apartments are clean and roomy but don’t expect any flashy facilities. Most have traditional white walls and pine furniture, a galley kitchen with everything you need to prepare basic meals, and good sized balconies with views over the eponymous ‘giant’ cliffs of the resort and the marina.

Public areas: 

Apartments are in traditional, Canarian styled, two-storey blocks featuring carved wooden balconies. The grounds are nicely maintained by the community, with window boxes of scarlet geraniums and walkways lined with bougainvillea and hibiscus.

Eating and drinking: 

The apartments are self catering and there are lots of places to eat right on the doorstep with everything from full English breakfast to gourmet dining a short stroll away.

Leisure facilities: 

The Poblado owners also own the César Manrique-designed El Laguillo swimming pool complex opposite and guests have free usage. The complex is chic and tranquil as families prefer the more facilities-rich Club Oasis along the coast. Don’t miss the opportunity to take a whale-watching trip on one of the marina’s pleasure boats - it will be a highlight of the holiday.

Service: 

Staff are friendly and helpful but their English is limited.
