On arrival at the apartments, the check in guy was immediately helpful and checked us in straight away even though we were early. We got 406 which was clean and very nice. The noise is as stated at night but any hotel overlooking the shopping centre will get this and earplugs sort you out. The steps from the centre up... More

Only minutes from the main centre where all restaurants and bars are. ... but what a hill up to it! As said before though,. taxis are less than €3 so its not all bad!! Rooms were very clean,...

Towels changed on visits and bed linen changed once, 159 steps to main town and shops, 3 euro for taxi back. Downside to holiday in puerto rico is the hassell from restaurant staff... More

Stayed as a couple at the Altair in early October. Can only repeat what most guests have already said - Clean and spacious apartments - huge balcony - nice pool area and helpful friendly reception. And yes frustratingly the pool bar does shut too early at 6! We did go to the very pleasant neighbouring hotel as you're allowed to... More

We found a 4 day break at this apartment withThomas Cook for a bargain price flying from East Midlands, flight was hassle free from the moment we got aboard. We landed half an hour ahead of schedule due to a favourable tailwind. Transfer from airport to resort was efficient as Altair was the first drop off. Reception and check in... More

We thought it might be too good to be true (especially after reading all the great reviews) but were more than pleasantly surprised. The whole apartment block (and sister hotel next door) is lovely and clean, and the apartments... More

A lovely apartment . Very friendly staff and the whole complex is kept very clean and tidy . There are some great views of Puerto rico . We had no problem with the amount of hill and step climbing to reach the apartment (taxis are cheap and plentiful) . The only thing that's lets the stay at Altair down is... More
