Just returned from 10 days at Terraza Amadores, although we had a good holiday it would have been much better if we hadn't been allocated Room 106. Rooms 101 - 106 are on the ground floor and directly across from the Pool Bar, which is open from 9am until around midnight, but holiday makers aren't encouraged to leave when the bar closes and can stay there talking until they feel like returning to their rooms - so it was rather noisy.
The family who run the Pool Bar are very welcoming and friendly and the food and drink is reasonably priced, but if you don't want to be the life and soul of the party, and engage in the weekly BBQ (Thursday) and daily happy hour (between 4pm and 5pm) then ask not to be given Room 106.
Also, Rooms 101 - 106 don't have any windows that can be left open to let the air circulate, so they can be rather warm and stuffy. As they are on the ground floor you don't get any privacy on your balcony or within your apartment - unless you keep the curtains drawn at all times. You can leave the bedroom patio door open a little, and it can be secured with a blot, but then you are subjected to the noise from the Pool Bar.
On the plus side the apartments are spacious and well equipped, they are cleaned 5 times per week, and towels changed regularly. The sheets were only changed once during our 10 days, but you come to expect that. The complex as a whole is nice and clean and if travelling with young children would be ideal, as there are only around 42 apartments so everyone gets to know or recognise one another.
The bathrooms were excellent, as they had a separate walk-in shower, so no bath to climb in and out of and no flooded bathroom.
The Spar shop on the complex is well stocked with day to day essentials and is reasonably priced.
The complex is within walking distance to both Amadores (5 mins) and Puerto Rico (20 mins), both of which have plenty of places to eat and drink. If out in Puerto Rice you must try Miami in the CC, the food is delicious and the staff really friendly. If staying closer to the complex then Grill Amadores is amazing, Santi the owner/waiter is really friendly and passionate about his food and pleasing his customers - and it's very reasonably prices.
We would definitely go back to Terraza Amadores on the condition that we were allocated another apartment - definitely not Room 101 to 106.
