The receptionists were very nice and helpful, the apartment was very spacious, very modern with everything you need for a comfortable stay. I had to ask for a hairdryer at the reception, but got one immediately. The best part is the large roof terrasse, with a beautiful view, and where small groups of sun beds are separated by many green plants to provide an intimate atmosphere. Absolutely lovely. The only desappointing thing was the swimming pool. It was not heated, and in February, the water was freezing. But otherwise, I will definitely come back!

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Playa Santiago then I would definitely recommend the Tapahuga apartments. From the welcome fruit basket to the free lemons and Apples the apartments are a delight. They are very clean and the cleaning staff are lovely. A sea view apartment is a must allowing you to watch the comings and goings of the harbour and to watch the sun come out of the sea every morning. The sun area with pool is fab! Yes the sun goes behind the hill at 5pm but if you're been out in it all day then it's no problem. Simply walk to the beach bar and you have sun again. Be aware that twice a year a digger clears the beach if pebbles, only lasts two days and is really not a problem, walk to the other end of the beach and you can't hear it. The construction work on the front is completed now and it is lovely....fab place to sit with a beer or have a meal. The apartments are really well kitted out, very comfy beds, very quiet at night and spacious. The kitchenette has two rings and a microwaves, more than enough. The balcony is just lovely and Santiago is a quiet peaceful community where we have found many new local friends. Have booked again for next year, can't wait!

We spent a week of our stay in La Gomera at these apartments. We had a sea view, and whilst there was the last vestiges of the sea front rebuilding work ongoing, this did not spoil our stay. The apartments are well equipped, are cleaned everyday very thoroughly and towels etc changed twice a week. Yes there may be rules on no guests to visit etc, but this is for the safety and security of the residents. The roof sun area and pool were very clean and an abundance of chairs and loungers. Would certainly use again .

The overall design, including the public areas, plus the high standard of workmanship and maintenance give this establishment a quality feel. Our apartment (205 mountain view) was large immaculately clean, averagely well equipped and the large balcony with cared for plants was an ideal place for breakfast and lunch. The welcome fruit, chocolates and biscuits were a nice touch. We arrived on an unusually cool afternoon. Our apartment had neither heating or aircon and our unsuccessful attempts to obtain a heater revealed the fact that the apartments are managed from Tenerife and that escalating a problem to a manager is not an option. The reception staff are intelligent, helpful, personable, kind and speak acceptable English but they find themselves in a position of responsibility without authority. The failure to provide a hair dryer (company policy as highlighted over a full page in the room rules book) presented another apparently unresolvable problem. However, within 24 hours, one of the receptionists appeared at our door with a hairdryer (her own?)and a sink plug which we had requested. Well done!!! At the present time the value of a sea view apartment is doubtful as the promenade is currently a building site on which nothing much is happening, so at least noise is not a problem. We very much enjoyed our stay, there are some excellent restaurants close to the apartments but we must recommend that you read the apartment description very thoroughly before booking. Incidentally, the rooftop pool and sunbathing area are a delight.

Lovely sea view apartments overlooking the harbour. There is a lot of work going on to create a new promenade in front of the building but that didn't affect our short stay. The rooftop pool area is perfect for relaxing after a day's walking. The apartment was well equipped but didn't have a hairdryer.
