This really is a great apartment/hotel. Arrived in the evening to be greeted by friendly staff. Checked in and paid for our safe which was €35 (you get €5 back for deposit). We were in room 304 and room was really clean and spacious. And because all of the hotels are built into the cliffs you get fantastic views of... More

I'm writing this from the balcony at the Altair. As you can see by the reviews the Altair is a really nice clean place to stay summed up very well by all the past reviewers who highly recommend it. Over the past couple of years visiting Puerto Rico we have mostly stayed at Gloria Palace 4 star hotel but as... More

Just returned from an 11 night stay in these apartments and cannot fault them. They are clean and modern with everything you need for self catering and have large balconies, great for enjoying the views day and night. They are also adults only, so no kids screaming around the place if you're looking for relaxation. The pool area is kept... 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
