Balcon del Mar
from £34 /night help
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Bargain at £225 per week for such a quality place. Enjoy your al fresco dining and watch the dolphins swim past from the balcony as you watch the sun rise and shine continuously all day every day. It's a good sunny spot (all year round) on the southern most tip of Tenerife and just a few metres from the coastline. Balcon del Mar has easy access to all amenities, including the local supermarkets, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Take the kids to the world famous water park 'Siam Park' or 'Loro Parque' and have a great day.
The apartment comprises a bedroom with a double bed and ample storage facilities. Further sleeping facilities are provided within the lounge area on the bed settee (maximum persons: 4). Leading from the living room is a spacious balcony with stunning and unbeatable sea views, furnished with a table and chairs to enable you to dine al fresco. The apartment is well kitted out with american style kitchen, fridge, microwave, oven, television, CD player, DVD player and washing machine. There is even a shopping trolley - every need is catered for!
Ideal for couples just wanting to relax or families with small children (in a secure complex with security guards), with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay, why not take a trip up Mount Teide in the cable car and view the fantastic scenery (the highest mountain not just in the Canaries but the whole of Spain) or visit the capital Santa Cruz or the old port 'Puerto de la Cruz' and take the kids to Siam Park and/or Loro Parc? Alternatively relax and read your book, do the crossword or enjoy your favourite soaps on the English TV channels. You can visit the local fishing village of Las Gallettes and watch the beautiful sunset as you drink your glass of wine and enjoy your evening meal.
Beautiful golden sandy beaches, water sports, entertainment and amusement parks are available in the nearby main resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas which can be easily reached by a short cheap bus ride or taxi.
Ideally this will suit couples seeking a relaxing, therapeutic, get away from it all, holiday. In addition to the double bed in the bedroom there is also a double bed settee, maximum occupancy is therefore four people.
Due to the secure complex this is a very safe place to be with small children

The Canary Islands region
Costa del Silencio (literally the 'Coast of Silence') is located on the sunny sout coast of Tenerife, just a 15 minute drive from the Reina Sofia airport. The island offers all year round sunshine with a sub tropical climate with temperatures generally ranging from between 25 - 30 degrees between summer and winter. The resort nestles between the golfing haven of Amarilla Golf and the bustly resorts of Los Cristianos and Playa de Las Americas (about a 15 minute drive away). There is a small fishing village within a 15 minute walk, with a frontline row of bars and restaurants and an early morning fish market (lunch or dinner straight out of the sea!). Diving trips from here! Fantastic sunsets can be seen from here. There is also a small shopping centre with numerous coffee bars, shops and a park. Closer to are a number of restaurants and shops within a 5 to 10 minute walk. Or if you don't fancy that why not pop next door to 'Gavines' for a tasty ghoulash or fish dish?
Tenerife is often described as an Island of contrasts - as the south is hot and sunny and yet the north offers beautiful scenery, villages and places of interest to visit. Meaning the 'Coast of Silence', this quiet resort could be light years from its neighbour Playa de las Americas. Here, most days are spent lazing in the sunshine - ideal for winding down and perfecting your tan.
When you're feeling active, the village is filled with shops and welcoming restaurants serving international cuisine together with numerous music bars offering fun nights out. You'll also find tempting seafront cafes where you can watch the surfers from the rocks and close by, a small stony beach and rocky headlands ideal for sunbathing.
Costa del Silencio is one of the warmest resorts on the island because of its location. It is rain free for the majority of the year with the best weather in August. The temperature rarely falls below 20C in the winter and in the summer it is around 30C. This quiet resort could be light years from its neighbour Playa de las Americas.

"Great appartment with a great view"
My Girlfriend and i had a great trip to Balcon del Mar and Tenerife!We had a great apartment with a great few across the ocean. Everything was clean and neat and the Service of Denise was also superb.… More
Thank you for your positive review. We work hard at keeping the apartment in tip top condition so it's always nice to get the positive feedback. So glad you had a good time in Tenerife. Best wishes Denise

"Fantastic view over the ocean"
The apartment is really nice, well equipped and furnished as well.The view is fantastic: every morning we had breakfast on the terrace (2nd floor) with the sunrise!Really quiet area but well situated … More
Thank you very much for the positive review. Unfortunately Internet access would add quite a bit to the weekly rate. We try to remain competitive on price hence the lack of wifi. We work on the basis that people are on holiday to relax and 'get away from it all' including access to business/works emails etc. But we will take on board your comments and consider for the future. We are pleased though that you enjoyed it and had a good time Denise

"Fantastic As Always!!!!!"
This is my Wife and I's 3rd visit in as many years, to this fantastic apartment!We find the location to be perfect for us, as it is nice and quite, with a really relaxing view of the Ocean from t… More
Thanks Mark. I know you have been out three times and are considering a fourth. Just for the benefit of Trip Advisor visitors I would like to confirm we are not related or friends in any way, but it was nice to meet you for the first time, albeit briefly, when we were both in Tenerife this time around. Also we genuinely saw dolphins twice off the balcony again when we were there - on the same day, so again it's a real possibility. I get really excited when this happens and start shouting at everyone one on their balconies as it truly is a wonderful sight. We get out ourselves about four times a year. We like to just chill,relax, sunbathe, read and do our various puzzles which suits us to a tee and we are completely relaxed when we get home for the next onslaught of business and work related activities. So glad you enjoyed it and thank you so much for the positive review. Denise

Many thanks for your positive review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Balcon del Mar, We work hard to keep the apartment clean, fresh and welcoming for all of our 'customers' so thanks again and hope you will visit again soon. People think we are joking when we mention the dolphins, but we have seen them many times, which is a wondrous sight to see. Best wishes Steve & Denise Morris

Having stayed in the Silencio area on many many occasions over the last 20 or so years, I now know that we have finally found the best apartment!!! The view is absolutely amazing and the apartment is … More
Thank you so much for your positive review and very pleased you are planning on returning. Hopefully during your next stay you will see the dolphins off the balcony which we have seen many times. Although we've not been as lucky as my in-laws who have seen a whale twice! We relax out here several times a year and during these periods generally give the apartment what I consider a 'good old spring clean' which keeps it fresh for our guests, which is in addition to the obvious cleaning rounds following each departure. We also try to keep it looking nice by updating the soft furnishings on a fairly regular basis. Thanks again Denise

Hi Cinzia. Many thanks for the very positive response. So glad you had a lovely relaxing time. As you intimate it is away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts, but enough to do and see for an enjoyable stay with bars and restaurants within walking distance. We agree the views over the Atlantic ocean are amazing and simply in our view unbeatable. Hopefully next time round you will see the dolphins! Thanks again Denise & Steve

We stayed at balcon del mar for six days. The flat was in good conditions, clean and tidy. The residential complex features a great swimming pool; it was also very quiet as we were there in late Septe… More
Many thanks for your positive review which is very much appreciated. Eating Al Fresco is also a favourite of ours and we often sit out glass of wine in hand, keeping an eye out for dolphins, which we have seen many times. Although the in-laws have the upper hand because they spotted a whale in the bay on one occasion!
