“No facilities were open during high season”
Reviewed 23 August 2011

I arrived at Los Veleros for a week's holiday with 3 children (13 months, 4 and 7yrs) to find a notice on the reception door asking me to ring a tel no. on my arrival. We arrived at midnight due to a delayed flight. On ringing the number I was told to wait in the street with the children and bags and someone should arrive in 30 mins with a key for our room. When he arrived he explained that he didn't work at the complex he was just delivering the key as a favour for his friend. The first floor apartment was clean with a good size terrace and a lovely view of the harbour. The kitchenette was well equipped. The maid came every other day to clean and change the towels. The complex had a reception, bar, mini supermarket and restaurant and they all remained closed for the whole week despite it being high season. Thank goodness for the Ipanema Park hotel across the road which was fully operational and very helpful for directions, food, water, taxis etc. The Los Veleros reception finally opened on the Friday and the friendly lady explained that they only open at the weekend as they spend the entire week at their other property. This property is a very long walk away from the main shopping strip,supermarket, beach, bars and anything else you might need during your holiday but taxis are fairly cheap. I'd definitely return to Puerto Rico but not to the Los Veleros apartments.

My husband & I have stayed here twice & are going back this year, as we've never been able to fault it.

I'll admit that we do rent the apartment privately from some friends of the family rather than booking through a travel agent, so I'm not 100% sure the facilities are the same as the rest of the complex, but we always have everything we need here.

The complex isn't the most modern, but it is clean & peaceful, with a spectacular view. You won't be badgered by an animation team or annoyed by loud piped music around the pool. And I've never had trouble getting a lounger.

Don't expect much in terms of staffing though - the bar only opens occassionally & I've never seen the restaurant open, but that's probably becuase it's only a short walk to the supermarket & there are no annoying rules about having your own drinks round the pool - this year, I'm bringing a lilo with a beer holder. :-)

The apartment we stay in is bright, spacious always clean & is also practically stocked with everything you'd need in the kitchen, including condiments (rather than the two-plates-&-a-fork setup i've seen elsewhere), as well as a (free to use) safe, TV, DVD player & even a cabinet with books, games, a sewing kit & all the local info we need (maps, bus & ferry timetables, etc).

Only downside is that it's a fair walk back up the hill from the bottom. Then again, it is worth it for the peace & quiet. Plus, it burns off a few calories!

Just come back from another wonderful holiday at Los Veleros. We have lived at many places in many country, but we have never been so satisfied with an appartment before. No, the appartment is not luxury but it works. It is small hotel and very family like to live here.
Beatiful wiev over the Harbor. Large Balcony with sunloungers which catches the sun from 8.30 in the morning to 18 in the evening.The best of it all - you can be totally in peace if you want that for the whole holliday. There are 157 steps down to the the little center and supermarked at the bottom. Further down another 15 steps and you can reach two other centers. 10 minutes to Portonovo center and 15-20 minutes at foot to the bigger Puerto Rico Center. We dident bother - because you can always ger a Taxi back for no money.

Room Tip: All rooms with Balcony are superb.

we had a 2 bedroom apt lots of room, the apt was a bit tierd looking but we dident mind our friendsapt was much brighter and on the first floor with a great view out to sea.
the location is quiet, but close to beach and resturants but a good walk to the centre where there are a lot of bars resturants and nightclubs , not our thing.
there are a lot of steps from the apt.s to beech level but if you take your time their fine
taxi,s only 3 euro.there's also a small centre below the apt's with some resturants and 2 bars and a large supermarket,we would definitely go back.
