Stayed here end of August/early September for 12 nights. Very basic but we booked last minute and got a very cheap deal. Staff were friendly and apartments were cleaned regularly. It was the end of the school holidays, so there were lots of children by the pool playing games. Great for families, but would visit outside of school holidays if you want peace. One time we did stay by the pool, a spanish family left their toddler crying on several occasions, which was annoying. There is also an onsite entertainer with a microphone running games and competitions. Again, great for families but a little noisy if you want peace. We escaped most of this though with trips out!
As other reviewers have mentioned, the apartments are located high up from the centre, which involves walking up/down a lot of steps. This was ok for us, but no good if you have mobility difficulties. The centre is very commercialised and is full of irish bars, steak houses and all you can eat chinese buffets.
However we did come across a couple of great restaurants. One was underneath the apartments, called Minanas. Excellent value for money, great quality and friendly service. Do book, as it is packed every night. The other was La Taberna de San Miguel in the main commerical centre. This isn't to be confused with San Miguel restaurant, which is likely to be the one you'll see first when walking down the steps and straight across into the commerical centre. Turn left in the commerical centre and you'll see it on the right by some steps, further down. We passed it several times during the day and were put off that there were no customers. We eventually tried it and it was much better than any other restaurant in the centre. We couldn't fault it. Best tapas around!! Service was so good aswell.
There is a beach in Puerto Rico but I'd recommend Amadores beach, which is easily accessible via the walkway from the harbour. The walk was lovely and not too strenuous in the blistering heat!
