We stayed here in July 2014 for our 1st family holiday and we had an amazing time. The weather, the hotel, the food, the all inclusive drinks were fantastic. The only downside is the hill it's ok to walk down but you definitely have to get a taxi back up but that only costs around 3€

Great hotel..food was good every time. And the rooms were spotless. All staff were very helpful and friendly, the restaurant manager even reserved a table for us to sit together each meal. The maid service on our floor was excellent. Happy Hour Bingo was really good fun. Will definitely be going back. I would say that the only fault may... More

Stayed at Hotel Altamar 20th July for 7 nights, my partner and I in our early 30's. Location of the hotel is not what it seems. Its on a steep, steep hill. We attempted a walk to the beach only once, it will take in excess of 20mins and is a struggle, even for us at our age, particularly in... More

If you enjoeyd the 80's, then you surely also like the Altamar. Everything over there is still original from the time when the hotel was built, incuding beds, sofa covers, etc. Don't expect to get quick service, at least not in the restaurant. It seemed that it was more important for the staff to do something else than serve the... More

This was mine and my boyfriends first visit to Puerto rico and the first thing that caught my eye when looking at the pictures of the altamar were the views from the apartments..

In short, Altamar is a clean but an outdated hotel that offers a nice view from most if not all of its rooms over the Atlantic Ocean. Plenty of sunbeds available on the pool areas. Very noicy place (road noice + loud "music"). In general, the clientele was more boose than family oriented. We will not visit the hotel again.... More
