This apartment is in a great location for a relaxing break in the sun. Plenty of room and wardrobe space, big bottle of water left for us that was really helpful. The apartment has everything needed and the air conditioning was a real bonus. Pool area is fantastic with plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. Good bar and restaurant down stairs by a beautiful beach. Near enough to walk to other areas with lots of nightlife and taxis very reasonable. Very good communication with helpful owner. Will definitely be returning.
I enjoyed a great week staying in the apartment with my wife and 2 year old daughter. It's a a simple, well-kept apartment with A/C in the main lounge/kitchenette area, although none in the bedroom (which didn't matter to us as it was mid-20 C temps, but might be less comfortable during 30+ weather).
The balcony overlooks a car park but isn't too noisy, and also features some views of the sea and surrounding mountains.
The resort is very good and great value, although slightly out-dated compared to the brand new luxury resorts surrounding it. It has 3 very nice pools, a very good restaurant (especially with 20% discount), and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
It's location is the main attraction, with the luxurious Playa del Duque, shopping centres and resorts surrounding it. If you don't mind paying slightly more than typical holiday resort prices, it means you'll enjoy a great choice of cafes, restaurants and bars mainly targeted at families and middle-aged couples.
Apartment was clean, complex was nice, pool area was good. Restaurant was great especially with the discount card ... BUT the apartment balcony overlooks a large car park - that is not shown in the photos. The location is good - 2 minute walk to Playa Duque and a 10mintue stroll into busier Fannabe area. Bus stops close so good to get into town. Everything was great apart from the balcony overlooking the car park

Having just returned from a 17 night stay at Altamira I thought I would write a brief review.
The apartment is located in Costa Adeje, a 10 minute walk to Bahia del Duque and a 15-20 walk to Playa Fanabe. This location we found to be perfect for us. Nice and quiet but not far from the excellent choice of restaurants bars etc at Fanabe/Torviscas/Colon. There is a taxi rank just outside the apartments where for €4-6 euros they will take you to any of these resorts. Bus stop is also at the top of the road with buses running every 20 minutes down to Los Cristianos.
The apartments are great. Nice and clean with the grounds well kept. There are 3 pools of varying depths including a great little kids pool. The pool bar is excellent value with kids meals or toasted sandwich and chips for less than €4. A large beer is just over €2. There is also a restaurant downstairs called la Brasserie which without exaggeration is outstanding!! We also we given a 20% discount card for being a resident which made the prices even better, they were good already!!
The apartment itself is tidy and pleasant. It is air conditioned which was a bonus as in Tenerife it's not usual. There is a bedroom at the front with twin beds, ample storage and a safety deposit box. Also there is an iron and ironing board. Bathroom with large shower and washing machine which was a godsend. There is then a small but functional kitchenette complete with all utensils and a microwave.
The lounge has two large sofas one of which converts into a surprisingly comfortable double bed. Also there is a flat screen tv which has numerous English channels.
Balcony has two loungers which we didn't use and a table with 4 chairs. The only slight negative was that the air con drainage pipe drips slowly into the balcony corner. I put the mop bucket in the corner to catch the water though and only needed emptying every couple of days.
All in all we were delighted with the apartment. We were with 3 children, one of whom slept in a blow up easy bed that we took along. We had no issues at all and look forward to our next visit!!!
