Puerto Plata Apartments

A huge pool and a central postcode are just two of the reasons why guests return to the Puerto Plata Apartments year after year.

The complex is set up like a small village, with whitewashed buildings gathered around a pool with a bar. Nearby, there’s also a well-stocked supermarket and a hair and beauty salon.

The pool’s in a prime position on an elevated terrace, so you can enjoy the views over the ocean while you’re topping up your tan. After dark, you can head to the bar for late-night cocktails.

Overview of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a coastal resort the whole family will fall in love with. It’s a bustling place full of child-friendly attractions and beautiful beaches. Days away from the Puerto Plata Apartments are often spent relaxing on the sand, wandering around shopping centres and heading on excursions from the marina.

In the evening, the fun ramps up a notch and the many bars and restaurants come alive. Most of these stay family friendly, but party-hard spots are also part of the package.

Things to do in Puerto Rico

The hillside setting of the Puerto Plata Apartments means you get great views of the Atlantic. Plus, you’re only a 10-minute walk away from the beach. The two main beaches that line the front of the resort are unique because they’re both man-made with sands from the Sahara and the Caribbean.

Away from the beaches, Puerto Rico has two large shopping plazas. If you’re travelling with kids, there’s a nearby waterpark, an Angry Birds activity park and amusement arcades.

In the evening, Puerto Rico’s atmosphere kicks up a notch. Expect to encounter karaoke, sports bars, cocktail lounges and all-night clubs.

The something-for-everyone resort of Puerto Rico is a great base for a sunshine-soaked holiday to Gran Canaria.

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.
