Alicia is a very nice host who made me feel very welcome. She's educated, very polite and great to talk to (for those of you that don't speak Spanish: don't worry, her English is very good).
She'll always be there for you if you need anything.
The apartment is in pristine condition and everything is clean. The WiFi internet connection in the living room is very good (about 20 Mbit/s, which is great for the Canary Islands). While the kitchen is very well equipped, in the shopping centre (a 5 min walk) there are plenty of restaurants that offer tasty and affordable meals (as cheap as EUR 4.90 for some dishes). For those interested in fitness training / working out: The same shopping center is home to a gym I can highly recommend ("Muévete"). While you could walk to Las Canteras Beach (appr. 15-20 min), if you want to swim, it might be better to take the bus (called "Guagua"), as the part protected by a reef is further away. The bus stop to go to the beach or the city center is a mere 2 min walk away from the apartment door. (It is worth getting a prepaid bus card if you stay for longer (buy and recharge it at any tabacco vendor); it just sets you back EUR 1.50 for the card, saves you from searching for coins everytime and you enjoy a discounted price for each trip (85 cents)).
To put it in a nutshell: I can highly recommend staying with Alicia! Perfect host, great apartment with ocean view, nice area which is very well connected; what more could you ask for?
