Reviewed February 25, 2010

Went to the Omar appartments in February half term. I'm 18 & boyfriend is 19.
Booked the Omar via 'On The Beach', I have been to Puerto Rico before and knew the location was alright.
It's up about 80-120 steps (as in steps UP, depends which ones you use) and a very short stroll (like 5 minutes max) from the main 'shopping centre'. This IS alright compared to some up higher and some on the other side. Puerto Rico has cliffs up the side and the main centre in the middle has quite a few shops for perfume, souvenirs, tobacco & bottles, shoes, novelties etc. There are 2 supermarkets in the main centre, both 'hyperdino' which have totally different prices, but quite good range, and there is a spar down towards the beach. There's lots of bars, go to Snoopy's, Jack Daniels & Harleys. 'Joker' nightclub was a bit naff, we only went once for half an hour.
In the Omar, we had a ground floor appartment, 109, with a HUGE balcony, however it didn't get much sun til about 3, which was not helped by a very odd sticky outy piece of concrete above it, right in the way (decoration maybe?)
There wasn't many sunbeds (they're free) but there wasn't much space around the pool anyway. The pool was nice, quite deep, and cleaned thorughly after the couple storms we had. (Apparently due to low Atlantic stream or something, usually it's nice in Feb)
The pool bar is run by a lovely English couple, very nice & reasonably priced.
The room... It was very small.
There was a breakfast bar (not very clean) & 3 seats, sink, 2 rings for cooking, a few (broken) cupboards, 3 saucepans and 2 frying pans, couldn't fit 2 on at the same time though, 3 knives, forks, teaspoons and desert spoons, sharp(ish) knife & a corkscrew. No kettle and no toaster, but could be rented for about 15 euros. We boiled water in a pan and did fried bread :)
Try UHT milk, the fresh stuff tastes funny.
A soft chair and sofa, coin operated TV which stopped working completely after we had a powercut during a storm.
2 Single beds & some blankets, the 3rd person (if there was) would presumably have to sleep on the sofa.
The safe was 15 euros with a 10 euro deposit. The receptionist was very helpful.
There were ants EVERYWHERE the second a crumb hit the ground.
The cleaning maid came in every day except Sunday, mopped outside and brought leaves and mud in (!!?!!) and changed the towels twice in a week.
The shower wasn't hot for very long, so we had to be economical with that. Plenty of plug sockets.
The key-cards locked us out at 12, though they said at reception that we could stay til we got picked up, soon sorted though.
It was basic & a bit grotty, but alright for coming back from the beach and at night.
Don't expect too much. :)
