Reviewed 11 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed in Studio Helen for a month in February 2016. Giniginamar is a very quiet & peaceful village and the view from the terrace is beautiful,

The flat is fairly basic but had everything we needed (although a washing machine would have been useful, but we knew that was not provided). Fresh bedding & towels are supplied once per week. When we first arrived, we found that the DVD Player was not working. However, we reported this to Helen, the owner, and she arranged for a brand new one to be swiftly supplied.

There are 2 restaurants (one Spanish & one German), plus a beach bar where we enjoyed freshly caught fish.

A car is essential. We had an Avis Budget car (Skoda Fabia) and it was fine. During our month's stay, we drove all over the island visiting Corralejo, Antigua, Betancuria, Costa Calma, Las Playitas, the Eco Museum at Tefia and Puertito de los Molinos (where there is a permanently flowing stream and a duck...

Management response:

Thanks, Janice, for the comprehensive review with lots of great info for other future guests! I'm really glad your stay was enjoyable and am grateful also for the tips for improvements I could make in the apartment. We're overhauling our accommodation and will be renovating and buying extras which our guests tell us they need.

Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The apartment is fairly basic but the view from the balcony is lovely and you can sit in silence listening to the birds and watching the stars come out and the sea darken as night falls. Giniginimar itself is very small and quiet. There are 2 restaurants - one German and one seafront Spanish with fresh fish. We only had the Canarian potatoes as we are vegetarian but the view of the sea and beach is lovely. The German had a bit more choice but you must ask for the menu or they will think you have only gone to dring German beer ( which they are happy for you to do if you wish)
The apartment block is privately owned by individuals and was extremely quiet when we stayed late April. The pool looks nice but is not heated so I was not brave enough to try it. Helens apartment is a studio with 2 single beds, living area, kitchen corner and bathroom. The kitchen area consists of 2 rings and ample utensils. We did cook a few times and it was fine although a microwave would be useful. The...

Management response:

Thanks in part to the feedback from guests we have done a lot of renovation. The bath has been resealed, we have new linens and towels, new mattresses, a microwave, a new clothes dryer and pegs and the whole apartment has been deep cleaned.

About the neighbourhood
The Apartments are just 4 minutes walk from the beach (black, pebbly) and have great sea views. There is also an outside pool. Tennis courts are 2 minutes walk away and are free! Great fishing can be had from the beach or cliffs (as recommended by some of my guests) and for golf enthusiasts a few miles away you'll find El Castillo / Caleta de Fuste.

The village of Giniginamar itself is a traditional fishing village for the locals - very quiet and undeveloped, with just one Canarian bar/restaurant on the beach, an international/German restaurant and small bar for drinks and snacks.

Gran Tarajal is the nearest town (10 mins by car) where you can do all your shopping and find more restaurants and watersports centres etc. One of the biggest towns on the island it was once the main po...
