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.

This hotel is located quite a long walk from the beach - 15 minute walk minimum, going down is ok, but coming back up is quite a steep staircase walk. Friday and Saturday nights can be quite loud but it's a distant noise more than anything else, the main strip is a 5 minute walk down the hill (again steeeep... More

Brilliant hotel. Has everything you need for self catering, microwave, toaster, kettle, hob. Bloody good shower, perfect for washing the salt and same away. We stopped for a week and it was very nice to chill out at night on the balcony with a can or 3. The place really does need air con, it got too hot at nights... More
