What can i say loved it,you will not be disappointed.Only downside the noise from the bars across the road in the centre. The steps leading up could be a problem but its 3 euros to avoid them if you dont want to walk up them. Beach is good,prices not to bad,we spent our evenings by the harbour as the centre... More

My friend and I booked Gran Canaria under the recommendation of websites, friends and family. We were attracted to the Altair due to the clean and modern look of the apartments together with the fact that they were adult-only. We booked with Thomas Cook and flew with Thomson airlines for 1 week from 23rd August. From booking to returning, everything... More

Was slightly dubious about apartments due to the very good prce we paid via Thomas Cook, as when something sounds too good to be true it usually is!! Not with Altair, they are exactly as described. Very clean, with change of towels regulary throught a 7 night stay, bedding also changed twice throughout our stay. Plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas... More

(Young couple ages 21-20) can't fault the altair, the value for money is next to nothing. Turned up to a 24hr reception desk which is just slightly below the pool area so no wanders into the appartments would be a problem for anyone. Got to the room it was really modern overlooking the pool and the rest of Puerto Rico.... More

My wife and I recently returned from a seven day holiday at the Altair Apartments. The first impression was extremely good as the apartment block had been completely refurbished. There is no doubt that if you are not physically fit then this is certainty not your holiday, as it states in the brochure. The steps up to the hotel are... More

Self Catering accommodation. Based on if you have looked at the hotel description/reviews etc and know what to expect. The hotel is as advertised. The whole area is hilly(very hilly - puerto rico) and means easy walks downhill and athlete type walks back up or a taxi couple of euros from the shopping centre. The hotel - Rooms are modern...

Same as many people had put. Made the mistake of counting the steps down to the valley, it was 189. I counted them every time lol. Only 3€ for a taxi when on a few occasions I was hot and tired. Well let's get back to the apartment review and location. The apartment was clean and modern, beds changed and... More
