Altair Apartments

A picture of modernist chic, the Altair Apartments block is a dazzling white building that overlooks a curved pool and enjoys an enviable location exceptionally close to Puerto Rico’s town centre. Despite being in the thick of the action, the complex itself remains peaceful and understated, offering guests the option to go in search of a livelier scene, as and when they want it.

Just 10 minutes from the beach, 300m from the resort centre and fantastically close to a large shopping mall, the hotel is perfect for spending lazy days by the pool or heading out for an adventure a little further afield. If you don’t fancy going out to a restaurant, however, the well-equipped room kitchenettes will give you the opportunity to cook in your room.

Overview of Puerto Rico

Holidays to Gran Canaria have always been popular, thanks to the island itself being something of a natural wonder. Utterly charming and beautiful, it is an island of many parts, terrains and even different climates, so there is always something new to discover.

Puerto Rico is a city with two distinct sides. Before the sun goes down, it is a bustling region filled with stunning beaches, excellent shopping and jaw-dropping vistas. At night, it turns into a fantastically sociable town filled with restaurants, cocktail bars and vivacious clubs. You’ll have the opportunity to stay up as late as you like in this hotbed of frivolous fun, but don’t forget that the next day will offer up even more things to see and do, so head back to the Altair Apartments and get some sleep.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

Days at the beach are a given in Puerto Rico and the Altair Apartments are so well situated that you can take your pick. Amadores is the quieter of the two man-made stretches of sand, with no loud music allowed and a ban on ball games, to guarantee relaxation. If you prefer a bit more of a party atmosphere, you should head to Puerto Rico Beach, where you can hire a lounger.

As you’d expect, there are plenty of water-based activities to enjoy but land lovers rejoice, as there is some brilliant shopping to be had on dry land, thanks to two large malls. There are even a host of child-friendly days out to participate in, with mini-golf, amusement arcades and an activity park to enjoy.

Regardless of your age or interests, Majorca and more pertinently, Puerto Rico has something for you. Beach days and clubbing nights are par the course here, but the fun doesn’t have to stop there!

Resort Summary

The two main beaches in Puerto Rico are pretty unique, and we aren’t just saying that – both are man-made, which means both had their sands shipped in from foreign locations. The tranquil Amadores’ shores came from the Caribbean, while the golden grains of the bustling Puerto Rico Beach came directly from the Sahara, making that first squish of sand between your toes that much more exotic.

A Blue Flag award-winning beach for its superior water quality and attention to environmental preservation, the Amadores is loud-music free, ball-game free stretch of sand, whose calm bay is ringed by a wall of rocks that keep the waves tempered. At the Puerto Rico Beach, relaxation-ready holidaygoers can rent sunbeds and stretch out underneath the Spanish sun while children splash in the lightly lapping water.
