Keeping up with the painting etc, the apartment was clean and had all mod cons including english tv, comfortable beds and the balcony had sun on it from lunch until sundown.
The complex is very quiet and most days you could have the pool to yourself. I would recommend this for a couples/single/family holiday as the complex is only a 5 min walk or so to the local beach, and you have plenty of bars and restaurants in the vicinity.

in phase 2 and enjoyed a full months vacation.
The apartment furnishings were showing signs of hard use and we found the seating in the living area uncomfortable but it did have a fully equipped kitchen area.
We found a couple of cockroaches which we dispatched with the insecticide provided in the unit and had no further problems.
The balcony was in a superb position for catching the winter sun all day.
I think we got what we paid for

First visited during the world cup 6yrs ago, best holiday ever, the rooms were what you want, a bed and food making facilities with a bathroom, what more do you need. Always clean and the maids knocked us up most mornings to tidy up.
Situated out the way, near the auquapark / main rd area but that gave us the oportunity to explore the area
Instead of just heading into the busy Las Americas resort.
You will find Miguel in the bar most nights, he gets along with everyone and is very friendly.
Can't really think of anything bad to say, oh yes, sorry, the lifeguard, as there are five pools and just one lifeguard, dont expect any help fast.. He's slow, I think he Russian ( not rushin ) and tends to be seen smoking a lot.
This complex is huge and for me offers more than some 3 and 4 star apartments I have stayed in before.
I reckon the only whingers will be the snobs on a cheap holiday or the never ending whingers who are never happy..
Try it out..

The location is a bit out the way, it's away from the lively area of Las Americas so it's a bus ride or taxi.
The cleaners were annoying, they would knock knock knock until you answered, we didn't get in until 6/7am so we didn't appreciate them annoying us at 8am, it was only once a week though.
The reception was aparently 24hours not once was it open 24 hours whilst I was there, so many times I had to plead with security to let me in because my mate had the key and she wasn't home.
If I were a holiday maker I wouldn't personally go there, but some people buy these studios/apartments to rent out so you might get a lovely room but we weren't so lucky, very basic.

The club on site was great fun - hello Toni & Miguel!
The cats were cute and friendly and obviously were fed by everyone so were very tame!!
The complex is owned and lived in by a lot of locals so was still very busy. Personally I thought the value for money was excellent - we paid

All the pools bar one were opened and spotless. Our apartment E8, was dated but adequate. Yes there was a few problems but nothing to spoil our hols.
At the end of the day you get what you pay for. We paid

Front was door falling apart.Patio was door glass falling out. Sofa bed provided for kids was filthy. The mattress on our bed was grotty.
To cap it all the wife found Cockroaches in the fridge
Only one pool open in which the kids cut their feet umteen times.
An air of neglect hangs arround the place with broken floortiles in the walkways.
Some strange people are resident here & don't seem to do anything but hang around and play loud music!
This place really is the pits, If you've already booked take my advice & cancel, Try some place else!

Our apartment was overlooking the large pool in the phase 3 area. When we arrived we were rather disappointed as the pool was empty and the area around the pool was very scruffy. The whole complex is in need of better mantainance as there are many broken tiles and other items in need of repair. We saw a lot of cockroaches at Mare Verde, inside and outside the apartment. Unfortunately in a climate such as Tenerife they will always be common. We bought some cockroach spray and stopped them coming into the apartment.
The Mare Verde complex is very mixed, some areas are very attractive, especially the areas in Phase 2 which are close to the cascading swimming pools. Whilst other areas of the complex are very shabby. Apartments are a mixture of rented, owned and resort managed. There are a large number of apartments that are lived in by locals. Looking at the local estate agents, Mare Verde apartments are the cheapest in the Torviscas area.
Some areas of the complex are very noisy and we were woken several times in the night by people leaving the Family Show Bar (which shuts at 4am...) opposite our apartment. However, there were not many of the 18-30 brigade so the noise levels could have been a lot worse!
As we were self-catering in a privately owned apartment we didn't really have any dealings with staff, but we did see the cleaner visiting the pool area each day.
All in all I think you get what you pay for and Mare Verde is a budget complex with it's good points and bad points.

The location was good, the resort was very clean along with the pools and I could really find no fault.
Never see much of the staff so cannot comment and didnt use the entertainment, to be honest was not aware there was any.
the only reason I would not visit the mare verde again is because on my last day when I was packing I realised my duty free ciggies were missing from my room, which I can only put down to the cleaners so I reported this to the reception desk but nobody was really interested, and I left there feeling very cross with there attitude.
