“IS IT HAPPY HOUR YET?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Arrived home on 14/7/13, spent 2weeks at these lovely appartments. Cant really complain about anything, brilliant location right on the beach.Appartments big, bright, tasteful decor, comfy beds. Maid service was great, kept the room spotless. Pool area perhaps a little small, but had lovely padded sunbeds. Pool bar was nice too, happy hour was 4-5pm, cheap drinks, the food was also good. Would definately recommend these appartments to anyone.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, if on ground floor you open your balcony doors on to the pool area, but then yo...

Just returned from the Vistamar appartments in Gran Canaria and had a fabulous time. The appartments are suitable for everyone including disabled people as they are across the road from the beach and no steps up the mountains! There is a lift in the appartments so stairs are not a problem. The appartments have recently been refurbished and are wonderful. The cleaning staff are great and there is security on all night, so any problems and they are on hand to help.
The pool bar is good value and Jess and Donna behind the bar are lovely girls and very knowledgable about the resort.
We went with Thomas Cook and went on the blanket trip which I would recommend as you see part of the island you would never get to see and have a lovely Tapas meal in the natural caves, which was really good. The trip is free but you do have to sit through a presentationn for mattresses and blankets which really wasn't a hardship.
Our Tour rep was Ryan who was wonderful, very helpful and knowledgable and a good all rounjd person, really lovely to talk to and very friendly

been 2 Puerto rico many times now and I saw this little gem the last time I was there so I did the homework on the place and research we were traveling as a couple out of Glasgow on the 2nd of may 2013 and it cost us £1190 with barrhead travel for a fortnight the place was spotless maids in every day and the location could not be any better u were right on the beach with amazing views of the harbour u could sit on ur balcony for hours just looking out and watching the activity plenty of places 2 eat and consume the demon drink on ur doorstep the best has to be THE RHODOS PALACE alittle greek gem food is first class cost about 30euros for 2 people there is also a good pub next door called the harbour lights which shows all the footy games and does an amazing sunday roast for 8euros roast beef roast tatties the works the best thing about where u are based is that u can access the main places in Puerto rico and the amadores beach and it is only 20mims walking 2 the farthest of the attractions and its all on the level no

Travelled in Aug 2012 with hubby and 2 children..Great location, lovely, refurbished rooms. Shame about the pool. Picture on tour operators website shows a much bigger pool... been before to apartments so would have liked to have known before we went that reduced the size of the pool...might have changed our mind about going..it got very busy in peak times so found we spent more time at the beach..not ideal. Not nearly enough beds for number of guests and most were taken long before pool was open... you can't physically put your towel on a bed to reserve it but you can sit by the beds that you want from as early as 7am.. ( pool not open until 10am so a long wait for all those people who did it)... Great for couples and adults, but if you have children, unfortunatley, not alot to do.... Would highly reccomend a trip to Palmintos Park..fab day out for everyone..dolphins, birds of prey shows, parrots etc..

We have just arrived back from a girls holiday at the vistamar apartments. The apartments had just been refurbished 2yrs ago and we spotless. The maid we brilliant and worked really hard.
Martin the receptionist was very friendly and was always pleased to help us.
I have been coming to Puerto Rico for the last 10yrs and have stayed in these apartments once before, I will be using the vistamar in future. I would definitely recommend the apartments to all age groups including familys. Excellent location on the beach and the main shopping centre is only a 10 minute walk or 3 euro taxi ride away. We will be back next year and will be staying here.

Room Tip: Choose a ground floor room. The pool is right outside your window and you have your own little garde...
