“A great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We stayed at the Terraza Amadores for a week at the beginning of October. This was our first holiday with our baby (5 months old).

Apartments:
We had an apartment on the first floor, which is the same level as reception and the entrance from the street. There is a lift to access other floors, including the ground floor with the swimming pool and pool bar. The apartments are clean and a decent size with big balconies. The kitchen area is fairly basic, but includes everything needed unless you are thinking of preparing a banquet.
Several previous reviews have mentioned the lack of air conditioning. We did not find this to be a problem. Fans can be hired from reception, although we did not find this necessary.

Pool and Pool Bar:
The pool area was quiet every day that we were there, and there were always plenty of sun loungers and umbrellas available, even later in the day. There is a small children's pool in addition to the main pool, with a large area around both pools for sun loungers.
The pool bar serves food from around 9.30am to 8pm. There is a good selection of food on the menu, and it is all very good quality and well cooked. The food can also be taken back to your room if you want to stay in but don't want to cook. I would recommend the barbecue on Thursday evenings.
Mel, Tracey, Toni and all the other staff at the pool bar are very friendly, and do a great job of running the bar.

We had a great holiday here, and would definitely return.

We recently spent a week here, myself, my husband and our 5 month old little boy. it was a great relaxing break, the apartments are basic but perfectly alright for a break in the sun. Kitchen equipment, a large lounge area and a massive balcony which got the evening sun-lovely. The whole place is very clean and quiet, no loud music etc. The pool area is fairly small but again clean and peaceful, and there was always sunbeds available, no rushing down to put towels down, a huge bonus on this type of holiday. The best asset of the place though is the pool bar. It is run by a lovely English family and their friends. Mel, Tracey and Toni really are very friendly and lovely people, as are Viv, Julie and Eric. They are helpful and attentive without being pushy or in your face. The bar offers a good selection of drinks and great food, excellent quality and prices. We ate here several times, having breakfast, lunch and dinner and it was always good, The weekly BBQ is also very good, great food and again value and a good atmosphere. It was nice having that facility in the heart of the complex, and it really does make the place. There is also a good Spar shop within the complex which sells all the essential-very handy and reasonable prices too. Amadores is lovely, a very relaxing place, and the beach and restaurants are a short 5 min walk away down the hill, a bit longer up the hill on the way back! but nothing unmanageable, we did it every night with a push chair. It is a lot quieter that Puerto Rico, which for us was a big plus especially having a small baby, but it is only about a 15 min walk around the nice coastal path, which has stunning views. We would happily go back to these apartments, safe in the knowledge of it being clean, great location and very friendly. Its not a 5 star by any means, but it doesnt pretend to be, however if a quiet, relaxing holiday in a lovely location is what you are after then i do not think you can go wrong.

Stayed here from 18th September for one week.2 apartments, beside eachother with sea view as requested. Have stayed in Puerto Rico several times and will not stay again but here in Amadores. Booked though travelrepublic. Great staff, big apartments, with great sea view and very large balcony with table and chairs and loungers. . Apartments serviced reguraly, and had great power showers. No air con, but that did not matter as you can hire fans. Anyway as we all know if you leave your curtains closed by day, sunlights will not get in and keeps heat out :) Pool fab, pool bar great value. Cleaniness all round excellent and staff friendly and always helpful. Best i have stayed in and will hightly recommend. Stone throw from beach and spar shop located on lower part of building offering everything you would need. Taxi's cheap and no problem to get from side of road, aprox Eur 3.00 - Eur 4.00 to Puerto Rico Centre,

Room Tip: Sea view apartment not by roadside.

Just returned from another fab holiday at the Terraza in Amadores. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Hats off to Tracey and Toni who do a great job of running the pool bar :o) Breakfast was very nice but we would have preferred other options rather than egg and bacon every day. We will return............

Room Tip: Ask for a high room in the back block.....not overlooked and fab sunsets

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a week and had a great holiday. The rooms are very clean and spacious with a huge balcony with great views. They are very equipped so you could easily cook breakfast, lunch etc if you didn't fancy going out. I've read alot of reviews complaining about the lack of air con, which I think is unnecessary as the rooms aren't that hot and you can hire a fan for 10 euros, which we didn't even think was necessary - the hotel clearly states that there is no air con before you book. My favourite aspect of this hotel is the pool area. With it only being a small hotel you didn't have to worry about overcrowding and reserving sun beds as you could walk down at any point of the day and you would be guaranteed to get a sun bed. The pool was lovely too which looked over to the beach. The pool bar was great the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food is lovely but also very cheap considering the standard. They offered a variety of drinks and cocktails and happy hour is everyday from 4-5. We attended the weekly BBQ on Thursday for 10 euros all you can eat which is really worth the money and I would recommend. The staff even kept the bar open later than usual for the occasion and they also did on our last night as a favour so we could all have a drink together. The staff are so attentive and you don't generally find this in big chain hotels which is what makes this hotel special. There is a spar shop on site which is handy. The beach is gorgeous and only a 5 minute walk away. The hotel is very peaceful as it is not directly in puerto rico centre but is only a 20 minute walk away or 5 minutes in a taxi costing around 3 euros. I would definitely return to this hotel again one of the best holidays we've both ever had!

Zedbex below is absolutely spot on with his review.

The apartment was large, clean, well-equipped and spacious. Nothing broken or in poor condition. Definitely under priced and much better than more expensive establishments across the area.

I have no idea why people below are moaning about air con?! This isn't a 5 star, 100/euro a night apartment. You can easily rent a fan for next to nothing if the room is too hot. Terazza doesn't advertise air con either so it's your fault for not doing enough research.

Can't recommend the pool bar enough. Excellent and helpful staff who aren't pushy or irritating in the slightest. Nice food and competitive drinks with a 'buy 1 get 1 free' happy hour between 4-5PM (gold star to Tony who let me borrow her e-book as I read my books in the first couple of days!).

5 minute walk to Amadores beach or 25 minute walk to Puerto Rico (3-4 euros in a Taxi).

Highly recommended and worth every penny.
