Set in quiet gardens just minutes from the beach, these spacious whitewashed bungalows are perfect for an away-from-it-all escape. There are 2 big pools to pick from, too, both edged with sun terraces.
This place is great if you’re after some peace and quiet. Bungalows and apartments are spread out across leafy gardens, so you get a real sense of your own private space.
The bungalows themselves are traditional whitewashed numbers, with green-painted woodwork and plant-heavy pergolas. Inside, they’re spacious and fresh, featuring crisp white walls and classic wooden furniture. They come with modern kitchenettes kitted out with everything you need for cooking, and they all have little outdoor patios with a barbecue so you’re well set for al fresco dining. Plus, if you prefer to kick back on a balcony, this place has some apartments, too. And the most you’ll have to climb is one flight of stairs – there aren’t any high-rise blocks here.
Outside, there are two pool scenes - one on each side of the complex, so you can switch between them when you fancy a change of scenery. Both have a large pool plus a smaller one for children, and they’re set into roomy terraces dotted with loungers. Thanks to the low-level design of this place, you’ve got uninterrupted skyline all round. As for the beach, a wide, sandy ribbon unrolls for miles just a five-minute walk away.
On the food front, there’s a restaurant serving up breakfast and dinner, and you can choose between buffet and à la carte options. When you fancy something different, head for the Puerto del Carmen strip. A 15-minute walk away, this buzzing stretch really comes alive at night - you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of bars and restaurants.

We stayed in Hyde Park in early Oct on a self-catering basis.The apartment was clean with comfortable beds and very quiet at night - well away from the hustle and bustle of the strip which was a 15 mins stroll away.
We didnt use the kitchen appliances apart from tea/coffee and toaster but everything appeared to be in good order.Breakfast ,for 5 euros ,which we had on a few occasions was excellent value but finished at 10 and was a bit of a scramble.
Dinner was served from 7 - 9 ,a choice of a la carte or buffet and while a little limited was good value,while there is a wide choice of restaurants along the strip or in PDC which is a 5 euro taxi ride.
The staff were friendly,competant and hard-working especially the girl in the bar who was pleasant and extremely helpful.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would return.More

Excellent budget holiday.
I travelled here last week in May/first week in June this year as a party of two adults and four children. Purpose of holiday being to relax for a week for not too much money.
Transfers from the airport were fine, as I'd expect, with a rep at the front pointing out which hotels/apartments that the coach was stopping at.
Check in at Hyde park was brilliant; staff very friendly and spoke excellent English. We required two apartments due to party size and these were allocated in very close proximity which was a nice touch.
Apartments are standard budget self catering; pine, lots of pine! However, very clean and tidy. Only criticism is that the smallest bed (if required) in the living room had a very uncomfortable mattress; my son figured out that if the sofa cushion was used as a mattress topper, it made it extremely comfortable, so we did that for the whole week.
The onsite restaurant and takeaway do brilliant snack food and meals next to the pool, plus free wifi around pool area! Pools were clean and plenty of sun loungers available.
The location, for us, was ideal. Short walk to the main road which has the beach over the road, turn left and you can walk to the older town with restaurants, shops and an excellent view of the airport runway, this takes about half an hour to walk to. A right turn takes you into the busier strip with restaurants, shops, perfumeries, etc. It was the beginning of the season there so still pretty quiet but all workers in local businesses were very friendly.
All in all, a very pleasant and relaxing holiday.More
Another lovely holiday
Have just returned from another lovely holiday here, I e-mailed ahead to request the same bungalow and got it :) bungalows are clean, with cleaners in most days, comfy beds with memory foam mattress, it's so peaceful with bougainvillea trailing from trellis over the patio. It's so nice to have your own space to relax on! Pool is lovely, staff here are very helpful. They even put a bottle of red wine in our room as a return guest so thank you, :) basic but clean accommodation what more do you need? Great for families and couples looking for a quiet get away, we will be back..............More

Don't use the the supermarket on site total rip off there's a spar about 10 minutes walk awayMore
we have just returned from hide park lane bungalows, 05/10 to 12/10.
we opted for half board, the apartments were self catering, and they were amazing, everything that you would need, hobs/microwave/coffee maker/pots/pans/etc/flat screen tv with numerous channels, a patio/outside brick barbie/oven, table/4 chairs. plenty of scenery/peaceful.
the bar good selection of drinks, reasonably priced, free hi-fi in bar and reception areas.
there are options to hire a safe in room, hair dryer, iron, all reasonably priced, the staff work very hard, and speak/greet everyone. you can buy meals and snacks in the bar area/restaurant. which were very good/reasonable price on the menu.
the only let down was the buffet food, i wish we had gone for the self catering option. it lacked staff to cover both the restaurant and the bar. the buffet hot meals were not very nice, mainly chips, there were plenty of salad choices, cheese/ham. but the choice for the hot meals was not very good,
but not withstanding i would return on a self catering option.
good relaxing location near to all routes/bus tops/taxi etc. very clean location, staff work very hard
