Had a great two weeks in the Altair Apartments in Peurto Rico, Gran Canaria. The apartments were cleaned everyday except Sunday and Tuesday. They were very nice with a great view across Peurto Rico. My only gripe would be that there were some ants but it wasn't a problem. There was 187 steps to walk down every time but got... More

We found the Apartment well laid out , lovely Bathroom. Balcony overlooking pool. Kitchen was well equipped perhaps some instructions on how to use the hob, would be useful. We did not hear too much noise at night, as we had our windows shut. On the downside the sheets on the bed were obviously worn out, as with the towels... More

Had a lovely winter week staying in the Altair apts, they were so clean and spotless. Nice relaxing pool area. Near the Commercial Centre although about 200 stairs to climb from the road, plenty of taxis if you can't be bothered. Did a trip to Mogan which is beautiful and also an Island tour which was fabulous, lynch was included.... More

This was our fourth time at Altair. Very clean and modern apartments, adults only, lovely pool (not warm enough to use this trip). Five minute walk from town (lots of steps but good exercise)! Don't take this as a really bad thing thing but the noise from the resort means that you may benefit from earplugs if you want an... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms, good poolside bar for snacks and drinks. This hotel is in a good location across from the Metro centre, which has lots of shops, restaurants and bars, but there is 200 steps (we counted) to get to/from there, once you've done it once or twice its fine :) you could access metro centre from another route...

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
