We stayed here last summer, 3 adults and 3 children in adjacent rooms. This hotel was just perfect! The apartment had everything we needed-hob, microwave, fridge and all accessories!! We were able to make most of our meals here and enjoy them on the gorgeous spacious balcony! Fabulous views, comfortable rooms, great cleaning service. The pools and bar were spot on aswel, the kids loved them , always plenty of space, always clean. Poolside beauty room aswel, and pool tables for the kids! The bigest benefit was by far the amazing kids club. My kids were 10 and 8,my friends son 5 and they all had a brilliant time. My son had thought he was too grown up for it but after trying it for 2 hours he was hooked!! They asked to go every day, had brilliant activities and the staff were amazing. At the end of the week my kids considered them friends and were so sad to leave them! Hotel staff were polite without being in your face. Arranged day trips without a hitch. 1 night our key broke in the door and after a quick call to reception it was sorted in less than 15 mins, despite it being 11 o clock at night. Location was good, 5mins walk to shopping centre, 2-3 mins in taxi to an amazing beach. The hills really r severe tho, would have never walked it with kids. All in all great stay, cant fault the hotel at all. Would go again tomorrow!!

Great hotel, friendly staff and would recommend this hotel to anyone who is heading to puerto rico, I really loved waking up in the morning to the stunning sea view and that alone was worth every single penny, no complaints with the food or drink either. Thanks for a good holiday altmar.

Stayed at Altamar last April for our second visit. Whilst the rooms are a little dated they are clean and have everything you need. The staff are friendly and there is a good variety of food and entertainment. The location of the hotel offers stunning views and is convenient for the Europa Centre. We have also stayed at the Riu Vistamar next door and really prefer the Altamar so much so that we are returning to the Altamar on 23 April and have also booked to bring the rest of our family in July.

Having stayed at the nearby Babalu Apartments,we decided on a change and after reading some very good reviews we booked a 10 day holiday at the Hotel Altamar.What a great choice we made.The receptionists were very polite and friendly on arrival.The reception area was very clean and tidy and included a small supermarket which was very fairly priced.Our room was on the bottom floor,six floors down by lift.Having read that the lift kept breaking down we were pleased that it only broke down once over the whole ten days,even though the hotel was busy.Our room was spotless with a large balcony overlooking the sea and furnished with 2 sunbeds,a parasol and table and chairs.The maids were in nearly every day.Nearby,Lord Byron steak house,Mary D's and The Cocktail Bar with DJ Russ are a must visit.
