Cala Nova

The hillside position of the Cala Nova means you’re greeted by sweeping views of Puerto Rico and the golden sands that sit below the skyline.

The pool here is bordered by sunloungers and comes complete with views of the ocean. If you fancy staying refreshed or you’re feeling a little peckish, there’s a nearby snack bar.

The hotel has a DIY set-up, so each apartment has its own kitchenette. You’ll receive a toaster, a kettle and a fridge. And if you need essentials, the supermarket is only a couple of minutes away.

The entertainment is also really impressive – professional shows take the stage in the evening, and the weekly line-up includes karaoke, bingo and live music.

Overview of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a destination that’s packed with beachside activities, bustling shopping centres and beautiful restaurants.

Shopping and water sports are the specialities in Puerto Rico, so if you’re looking for a holiday to Gran Canaria where you can get the adrenaline pumping and keep the kids entertained, Puerto Rico should be right at the top of your list.

A family-friendly resort with a variety of experiences, fun is always on the agenda here. As the sun goes down, Puerto Rico really comes alive, so you’ll find your stay at the Cala Nova is packed with action from morning until night.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

The Cala Nova is just outside the centre of Puerto Rico, so you miss out on a lot of the noise but have all the main attractions just a short stroll away.

The beach is only a 10-minute walk from the hotel’s front door. There’s lots on offer down here – you can soak up the sun, paddle as the gentle waters lap gently against the shore or zip across the open waters on waterskis.

By night, the city transforms and you’ll find music filling the squares and restaurants. Whether you want to enjoy a meal, sing your heart out in a karaoke bar, sip on cocktails on the seafront or watch the big game, there’s an option in the lively centre. Days at the beach combine with all-night fun in Puerto Rico and the whole family will have a fantastic time.

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.
