Myself and two friends visited these apartments the last weeks in August 2004. The apartments were very basic but very clean. The cleaners came in and changed the bed linen and left clean towels every two to three days (unless you were sitting in the apartment).
Staff at the hotel were nice and friendly and even the wee night guard who can NOT speak a word of english, was very funny but did tend to do his nut especially if you come in drunk and make some noise (which I suppose is his job).
Our Holiday Rep Lindsay from Airtours was lovely, cheery, helpfull and up for a laugh. Lindsay came to the apartment every other day, so if you need any information or help there is a timetable at the reception with the time's you can catch her on the premises.
The apartment is very near the commercial centre, although there is nearly 100 stairs to do down to get to it. This wouldn't be too good for elderly people or people with walking difficulties. Going down them is ok, but once you have either had a day of roasting in the sun or sunbathing in the pub, walking up them is murder as they are quite steep, but for about 2 pounds you can catch a taxi anytime at the bottom.
You will also get the chance to go on trips with your reps. We booked up to go to the Gladiator Theme Night, as we won two tickets on our welcome night and just had to pay for the one. This was a good night with a nice meal and as much free wine as you could drink!!
We also booked up to go on the partyboat but didn't actually make it, which wasn't so good as we didn't get our cash back.
There is a mini-market in the apartment, this was a bonus to us as the last thing we wanted to do on our holiday was to go shopping for food and essentials.
Next to the shop there is a bar with friendly staff who you can have a laugh with but I did find that it was my job to tell the barman when to STOP pouring the vodka and start pouring the Irn Bru. The bar is also linked to a burger bar which sells food during the day, the food was quite tasty as was the chef's son who works there at night!!.
There is a pool which is cleaned every night. It looked very clean at all times and I never seen any bugs or anything creepy floating in it. There is a small bit for very young children which is about ankle deep. Although the main part of the pool is quite small there is enough room for the older kids and adults to have a wee swim and fun in.
I have lot's and lot's of stories about my holiday at The Tamanaco Apartments but very much doubt that there is enough room on this web site for to write all of them.
But I will leave you with this, we were three young ladies looking for a great holiday in the sun away from work and children. We chose these apartments and were NOT dissapointed with them. They were clean, freindly and were right next to some great nightlife. When we are to return to Puerto Rico (which we are planning on) I will be happy to return to these apartments.
Jaclyn, Kirsty + Donna.
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT HOLIDAY.
