Stayed at the Altair apartments for a 1 week stay . Amazed that Thomas Cook failed to advise customers of the building work next door at the Cala d,or. They had customers booked from this Saturday, but as we left Thursday, the lower level area was just a shell!!. The work started at 8am and continued until aprox 21.30. Lots... More

Just back from one week stay at Altair Apartments. Clean and spacious. Fantastic view from big balcony. Staff friendly - reception desk manned 24/7 and very helpful. Maid service - beds made, bins emptied daily. Well maintained pool area and ample sunbeds. 15 minute walk to beach; lots of steps down to commercial centre for shops/restaurants, so not suitable for... More

We stayed here for our first time in Gran Canaria and we thought that the Apartments were excellent. They were very modern, spacious and clean. One problem however is there is NO air-con, I think you can rent a fan from Reception, but we spoke to someone when we got there who said there is no point as the fan... More

Eight of us went, all our family, and it was OK. Nice pool but quite a long walk to the beach. Food was acceptable (just) and our experience of the staff left us no cause for complaint. Best not describe the entertainment (lamentable).

Visited the altair from 6th-13th July and did not want to come home. When we arrived on the coach me and my friend were very surprised to see the hotel looking as nice and modern as it was, for the cheap price we paid! The whole of the hotel and rooms we're spotless and we even got a pet cat... More

Night time reception was rude and insulting. Cockroach in bathroom. Pool was small. Not a frendly atmosphere. Apartment was nice. Modern with large balcony. Television was free to watch. Great view from balcony. If the night man who wasnt wearing uniform wasnt insulting to me I would have given 3 stars.

First visit to gran canaria and we're very pleased with the apartment. Fairly basic but fine for budget price. Rooms were large and well equipped with good balcony. No sea view. Well serviced and good position but if steps are a problem I would not use this hotel as it sits up the mountainside so getting about might be difficult... More

Just returned from a week at the Altair and would definitely recommend it. Rooms are modern, spacious and well kept. Reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. We had a slight problem with our fridge (our own fault) but as soon as we reported it to reception the technician arrived within 10 minutes and sorted it. Only downside to the... More

As the trip adviser reviews on this looked too good to be true I had to try it/just returned 25/06/14 after two week stay with my wife. It was even better than expected from the warm welcome at reception thanks( Eduardo) to the newly refurbished rooms all with sea views to the excellent cleaning staff. We were on floor 6... More

Spent 11 delightful nights in perfect comfort. Clean well kept and very affordable. Would definitely stay there again. Read reviews before I booked so was prepared for the 200 hundred stairs to get to and from the town centre only opted for the taxi ( about €3 ) once when I'd had a few too many.
