“Would stay here again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2011

Stayed here on two occasions, in august 2004 and august 2006. Rooms are basic but very clean which is the main thing. Up on the fourth floor so there was a fantastic view and not a cockroach in sight. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was really good in the restaurant, even got free spainish lessons off the waiters there. Only downside is the steps! Not really good for elderly or disabled people. But then taxis are dirt cheap. Close to the main area in puerto Rico but far enough away from all the noise. Would stay again, especially now that it has been refurbished.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2009

I stayed here in July 2007. We booked the apartments on the advice of a Budget travel agent.
We have been to Puerto Rico 4 times over a 3 yr period and we opted for someone different. The apartment itself was very small for 3 people. As you open your door ur kitchen hobs are rite beside u and your bathroom is to your left, the bathroom has frosted glass and no lock, the bathroom is also grubby.
As we continued into the apartment, there are two single beds and a sofa bed, my friend is 5,7 and the sofa bed was too small we had to put a coffee table onto the end of it so she fit.
the hotel was clean otherwise. the view was fabulous and the check in staff were wonderful, however the night porter was a little too much, he would simply stare at girls as they collect there keys from the reception, it could have been simply fasination but it did make you a little uncomfortable.
the pool was clean and spacious, the bar food left alot to be desired.
these apartments are great for the view, however the walk to the beach was not so great, they do have steps down to the beach but u have to walk through an underground tunnel type of thing that stinks of urine, but if your looking for a holiday with great views this would be my first choice,

a taxi to the commerical centre is about 3 euro.

Once again we had a very pleasant stay at Punta Del Rey in Puerto Rico from 02.11.2008 to 17.11.2008. The rooms are a little dated but they are cleaned almost every day. The staff is very polite and the restaurant is a very nice place with wonderful food and life music 5 days a week.
We have stayed at this hotel for 5 years now and we can't think of anything better.

Apartments: Basic apts., small studios, cramped, frosting on bathroom door, no lock on bathroom door, no bath stopper, etc;

Pool Area: Fine, quite clean apart from the cats running around day and night, also a lot of birds, good quota of sun loungers, nice view of the beach.

Situated: On a steep bending hill above the main round about. Taxi costs around EURO 2.50 - 3.00. 10 minute walk down to shopping centre. Steps from the apartment entrance down to the promenade.There are quite a lot of steps even if i do say so myself, eben for young, fit people.

Staff: Cleaners were good, no fuss made, just in, get the job down, and out again. They didn't steal anything which is a bonus, although i would recommend a safe in any apartments. Reception was fine, although one night he followed a person walking to there room and told them to stop speaking and made someone turn off there radio at 7 in the evening!

i stayed here last year with the girls for a two week girly-end of exams holiday and it was far from spectacular. The apartments themselves are the most basic of the basic, badly lit and the bathroom door would hardly close. The pool was grand but had a lot of bleach etc in it which made my skin quite brittle. the floor in the lift was coming up which was a bit dodgy. the food in the hotel was nice enough and very reasonably priced but the pool side bar smelled like gone off chicken. the reception staff were quite rude and unapproachable and lets just say you would not like to meet one of them on your own at night he made me feel quite uncomfortable on a number of occasions! the apartment was kept very clean and was cleaned almost everyday but there was no such thing as the cleaners returning after a few more hours sleep, they demanded to be let in... quite often at 8am!

the beach area is amazing. the man made beach most be seen but there is very little beach activity occuring such as banana boating etc which i was quite disappointed about. if you have a bit of cash i definitly would not recommend staying here, instead for a few hundred euro more you can stay in such spectacular hotels as the gloria palace amadores which has panoramic views of the sea and the complex is out of this world.

all in all i put up with the apartments because the area was so nice but except the that the place is a dump. oh an dont use the first pc... it just eats your money an u dont get it back!
