Porlamar Apartments

Instagram-worthy views come as standard at the Porlamar Apartments. Topping up your tan’s easy, too, as each apartment comes with a private balcony and a pair of sunbeds. Inside, the apartments are fitted with up-to-date kitchenettes so you can rustle up your own meals.

The pool is on a spacious veranda overlooking the ocean. There are plenty of sunbeds to choose from and a pool bar. Twice a week, a barbecue evening is held out here. Live music is also on the bill at the weekend and the barmen will happily mix a tipple of your choice.

Overview of Puerto Rico

When you choose Puerto Rico for your holiday to Gran Canaria, you can expect a stay packed with activities. The resort specialises in water sports and shopping, so you can enjoy high-octane fun and high-end fashion.

Puerto Rico is a family-friendly resort. Days are often spent on the beach, while families and friends alike congregate in sea-view restaurants in the evening. If you’re not ready to head back to the Porlamar Apartments, you’ll never struggle to find a bar that stays open late.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

You’re nestled into the hillside at the Porlamar Apartments, but the beaches and the resort centre are both within walking distance.

Puerto Rico is home to two man-made beaches. One had its sands imported from the Caribbean while the other beach has Saharan sands. Families usually head to Puerto Rico Beach, but if you’re looking for extra relaxation, Amadores is free from loud music and ball games.

It’s easy to keep kids active. Puerto Rico has a mini golf course, amusement arcades, boat tours and a nearby waterpark. There’s even an Angry Birds activity park!

Puerto Rico is a something-for-everyone location – the whole family will want to return again and again.


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.
