Castillo de Sol Apartments

Overlooking Puerto Rico, the Castillo de Sol Apartments complex is a tiered property that guarantees sunny bedrooms and excellent views. Just minutes away from the resort centre, including Puerto Rico Beach, guests can choose between the pool or the sea for swimming. The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped, each with a modern kitchenette but with so many restaurants in close proximity, you don’t have to cook if you don’t feel like it. An unfussy but perfectly central accommodation option, Castillo de Sol Apartments is also great for holidaymakers who want to explore rather than just lie by the pool every day.

Overview of Puerto Rico

Holidays to Gran Canaria are unpredictable, in the best way possible, as the island is so multifaceted. Different climates and landscapes all on one island are just two things that keep people returning here, as well as the variety of activities on offer. Puerto Rico is THE city to visit on the southern coast of Gran Canaria. There’s nothing lacking in this gorgeous part of the world with beaches, restaurants and fun activities at every turn. There’s a definite luxury vibe too.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is ideal for a spot of shopping, as it has two large malls. You’ll be able to pick up everything from designer clothes to fun souvenirs, and the food courts make it easy to sample a few new dishes as well. There are two beaches in Puerto Rico and both are man-made, which means that they have been designed to cater to the needs of visitors perfectly. Incredibly soft sand has been imported in with Blue Flag accreditation being granted to Amadores Beach. Spending a day or two here will restore even the weariest of holidaymakers in no time. When the sun sets, Puerto Rico lights up with pubs, bars and nightclubs. The vibe is upbeat but not raucous and the best way to experience it is to approach the nightlife like a local, by enjoying a siesta, eating late and letting the party continue into the early morning.

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.
