“Enjoyable hotel”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I spent a week at the terraza amadores February 1-8. The rooms were really spacious and had all the amenities required. Had room 306, which was in the building by the road. Some have commented that these aren't as nice, but this had to be the best room in this building. Located on the tip of the top floor, the view was amazing. the balcony large with sun loungers. There was sun on the balcony from 3-3.30. Occasionally some wind, both on the balcony and pool. Sun hit the pool at about 11. Biggest minus was that the beds were definitely not the best and that I broke my foot leaving, when I was negotiating the stairs in the darkness. They really should have motion detector lights or similar.

Room Tip: 306 was a good room, although some traffic sounds which did not bother me. 101-106 does not have a p...

Nice and clean hotel and serviceminded personal. It is very good situated with a short walk (5 min) to a very nice beach. Very close to the local supermarket, which was good.
Beds are a little to hard and pillows to small. Asked for an extra pillow and it was better.

Room Tip: If you ask (or pay) for big terrass, you will get a better sea view, but more trafficnoice. In my op...

Spent two weeks here in October and we're already planning our return,was literally the nicest place we have ever stayed. The complex was fully booked throughout our stay but you'd never know-there was zero problems with noise, space at the pool was never an issue and there were plenty of sunbeds. The staff were fantastic. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Neives at reception, offered a welcome glass of wine and directed to our fabulously lean and spacious apartment. The place was spotless and we even had a chilled bottle of water in the fridge which was such a lovely touch. The balcony was twice the size of most and it was lovely to have our own sunbeds if we wanted to stay at the apartment. The pool bar was great Julie was fantastic, gave us so much info about the local area, where to eat,drink etc. she couldn't have been nicer and we continued to stop by and have drinks there if she was working, a great asset to the place!
The complex itself was perfect, spar on your doorstep, and the beach was a three minute walk. Limited restaurants in amadores itself but Los amigos is certainly worth a visit. Only a short taxi to Puerto Rico where Oscars restaurant has to take first prize and Charlie's next door is fab for cocktails. All in all it's an amazing spot really worth a visit can't wait to return next year!

We returned a week ago from one of the best holidays we have ever had!

Last year (October half term), we stayed in an all inclusive hotel with a water park (Taurito, Gran Canaria), with no independent restaurants at this location, we realised this isn't really our style. We enjoy eating in different restaurants and we found that this year staying at the Hotel Terraza Amadores suited us much better. The room was large, clean and comfortable with an excellent shower. It was very reasonably priced, and was really close to the beach (a pleasant 5 minute walk).

I worked out the difference in price for the all inclusive that I paid last year compared to the price of the hotel Terraza Amadores self catering this year and budgeted to spend the difference on the meals at lunch and evening at restaurants. We spent less than last year! We own a restaurant in Frinton-on-Sea in Essex (Franck';s) and I wanted us to enjoy being waited on for a change! We wined and dined without being concerned that we were breaking the budget! We had breakfast "at home" and arrived at beach in time for lunch. We all had fun choosing which restaurants we wanted to go to.

The beautiful white sand beach and crystal clear sea is in a horse-shoe shape with plenty of restaurants and shops around it's perimetre and we enjoyed trying most of them out (for lunch and evening meals). We decided to cook only on one evening, my husband nipped down the stairs to the Spar shop and bought pasta, king prawns and cream to create a lovely meal. Another evening, we sat on the beach after a tiring day of swimming and sunbathing and ordered takeaway pizzas from the restaurant Belice which we could have eaten on the beach, but we took back to the hotel. The Belice gave us both a pint of beer each while we waited and gave Sam (our 11 year old son) a bottle of coke and two bottles of water to take back with us! The Chinese waiter is the owner and was so lovely! We had quite a few lunches and evening meals with them and were very well cared for, the food was excellent. Equally, the Monacco treated us in the same way and we found that the food was also excellent and the staff became friends!

This was our second visit to Terraza Amadores

If you are not looking for 5* and just want good basic, scrupiously clean accommodation with plenty of space, a huge balcony, comfortable beds, and you are not planning to cook a lot you really cannot go far wrong at this resort.

Having been before, we hired a fan and the safe as soon as we got there. As many reviews mention there is no air con, so the fan is well worth getting if you are going in the summer.

The apartment that we had this time seemed to be better equipped than last year. The manageress Neives bless her, will try to get you anything that you ask for within reason. She let us have an Iron and a kettle for the week and we also asked for an ice cube tray which was soon provided. I think a lot of the things people ask for get left in the apartments, and that's why some may be better equipped than others. One thing that would have been nice would be a sangria jug, but we managed by making it in a large bowl and using the ladle.

The cleaning and linen changes are regular and well executed, better than some 5* resorts we have been to.

There were new beds around the pool this year and they are always plenty to go round, and there are parasols as well. The old beds have been put on the balcony's. The pool is not huge, but well big enough for the size of the resort.

You can get good home cooked reasonably priced food, and drinks at the pool bar which is run by a lovely English Family Mel, Tracy, Toni and Eric, who really look after their guests.

The beach is man made, but is a lovely sheltered horseshoe bay with golden sand that is kept nice and clean, and the water is lovely. There are lots of beds and parasols at around 10 euro per day for two beds and a parasol, and they are kept very clean and re-upholstered regularly. The beach is backed by a variety of shops, cafe's and restaurants open all day and some restaurants into the evening, and is only a short walk from Terezza Amadores.


It takes about 20 mins to walk around the cliff to Puerto Rico, where they are more choice of restaurants bars entertainment and shops. It's a nice walk too, and most evenings there is a lovely sunset to watch and photograph. If you don't fancy walking back a Taxi costs about 3.5 to 4 euro, so well worth it. There is a nice beach here too and two harbors.

There is a weekly market at Puerto Mogan, and you can catch the bus there. This resort also has a nice beach and plenty of bars and shops.

The best thing about Terezza Amadores is the location, so much of the accommodation is Puerto Rico and Playa Amadores are up very steep hills, and this is not. also there is a small Spar underneath the apartments which seems to have improved a lot this year in choice and on their prices. There are bigger supermarkets in Puerto Rico which used to be cheaper, but
the little Spar has become more competative I think.

We will definately try to return to Terezza Amadores again next year.

We spent 11 nights at this apartment complex in September. We found them to be really nice, clean and only 5 minutes from the beach.

The apartment was huge with a well equipped kitchen and a lovely balcony. Great shower and a really comfortable bed. As per other reviews we would have welcomed some air conditioning as it was very hot some nights, I think if we visited in the peak of summer we would have had to get a fan.

There was a small pool on site but to be honest the beach is so nice and close we only used it once. There is a great Spar on site which has everything you need and a small bar which seems to have a lot of regulars so must be good. We had a lovely lunch there on our last day.

There is a bus stop 100 yards from the hotel so you can travel all over the island really easily. From Mogan to the east all the way to Las Palmas in the North. Its a quite resort and by 9.30pm the beach bars and restaurants are closing but you are only a £4 euro taxi or a 20 minute walk to P Rico. Although I suggest getting the bus as its cheap and drops you right at the door.

So why not 5 stars. Firstly the pool is next to the road and the bar which is open to everyone so doesn't make for a relaxing day by the pool. Secondly there must be some kind of sewage junction just outside the hotel which was smelly some days as we walked to the beach. When we sat by the pool the smell did drift in and was not pleasant.

Otherwise for what we paid it was excellent value and the apartments really are first class. We would stay again.

Room Tip: Room 315 was away from the lifts and had a partial sea view. It was also on the inside of the comple...
