Hotel Terraza Amadores
Ranked #16 of 67 Hotels in Puerto Rico
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Amadores is a beautiful part of the islands coast and the apartments are spot on in every way.

The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk to amadores beach which is one of the best on gran canaria. There is a well stocked shop on site and Puerto Rico is about 30 minutes walk away along a spectacular cliff-side path. Worth making the walk just for the views.

The apartments are spacious and very well equipped (full size fridge, two rings, toaster, microwave) though we did very little cooking as the pool bar serves excellent food and is really good value. Highly recommend curry night. We were particularly pleased as our family is vegetarian and my wife is also on a gluten free diet - this can be a problem but the staff at the pool bar understood the diet completely and there was always plenty of choice. Got the feeling that the staff would be able to cope with any special diet. Very friendly laid back atmosphere.

The whole hotel was very clean and all the staff were helpful and friendly.

No hesitation in recommending.

The hotel sits by a very busy road, ascending a very steep hill, leading to numerous hotels. Our patio, and room doors, were 10 metres from the road and also the entrance to a large public car park. The noise was constant and unbearable, the exhaust fumes choking. From 05.30 every morning a steady procession of HGVs and coaches would shift down gear and accelarate to climb the hill. Anyone walking past had a view into our accomodation, esp thru' the bedroom patio doors! and unrestricted views of our patio.
Went to the man made beach on our first day to do some snorkelling , only to find myself swimming amongs human excrament.Reps response to this news was that she wanted to try snorkelling!
Only saving grace was the local bus stop was outside, escaped to Mogan,beautiful, and Maspolomas, great swimming and beach.
Shame, as the Spanish staff were excellent.

Room Tip: rooms in any other hotel would be less of a health hazard

Have just returned from a two week holiday at Terraza Amadores apartments and can't recommend them highly enough. The location is superb, only a few minutes walk from the beautiful beach, with plentiful lovely restaurants. The maid service is carried out 5 times a week and the apartments are spotlessly clean. We were in room 301, above the Spar shop, and overlooking the road. The pool bar is run by the lovely Tracey & Mel, with assistance from Toni, Viv and Julie, who is a complete star!! We were made very welcome and left feeling like we had made new friends. The Thursday night BBQ was delicious and great value. This was our 5th vacation in Gran Canaria, and we will definitely be paying a return visit to Terraza Amadores.

The Spar shop is very well stocked and a great asset to the apartments.

Kettles are available on request from reception, at no additional cost. Safety deposit boxes cost €18 per week. Wifi cost €20 per week, per item. We took our iPad and had virtually no connection problems. Fans are also available at a cost, however we were advised by reception that we probably wouldn't need one as the rooms were cool, and they were spot on, whether that would apply later on in the season I can't comment. The staff in reception are very helpful, but be aware that the reception is not covered 24 hrs, there is an emergency 24/7 tel no in the event of a problem.

We found the resort very quiet at this time of year, so don't expect party central if you are visiting April/May time, it wasn't an issue for us, but came as a surprise.

I would recommend 2 beach restaurants in particular, Ciao Ciao (Amazing pizza!) and Monaco Grill (fantastic steak)

Literally just back from this hotel a day had a lovely stay people and staff very friendly. Spar shop attached to the front of the hotel very handy, had everything you could need. Pool very cold but you just need to jump straight in ! Mel and Tracy plus the other pool bar staff very helpful and make it a nice atmosphere, BBQ every Thursday which was fantastic, all you can eat.

Reception has silly opening hours arrived on our first evening after a very tough plane journey and extremely long bus trip to find reception closed and not able to check-in ! Not happy with this at all, had to go the bar which were very helpful and eventually found us a lady who works/lives there, we eventually got checked in. No air conditioning, enquired about a fan and never got it ! We would leave the curtains closed to keep the sun heat out while we went out for the day, the cleaner would then leave it wide open, at night we had to leave the sliding doors open in our room. No kettle in the room you have to rent it which again I think this is silly considering the apartment had everything else you could ask for !

No night life around but Puerto Rico commercial center is a 45 minute walk, a lovely one at that. Myself and my partner walked it three times a day. Amadores beach (5 minute walk from the hotel) is beautiful filled with shops and lovely restaurants, we ate in Restaurant Zenubia near the end on the left hand side, very friendly waitress.

If you want a late check out make sure you ask for it as soon as you realize you need it, we gave 48 hours and we could not be accommodated. This meant we were not getting collected from the hotel by our shuttle bus until after five and we had been out of the room at 12pm, our suitcases were put into a room downstairs at the game room with no light fixtures and not locked !!

Room Tip: With this hotel to get a room with a view when you are booking ask for a front facing room.

Booked these apartments based on the good reviews on trip advisor and the low price for May. The reviews are accurate. The apartments are very clean and the staff very nice. Spar shop under hotel very handy!. Amadores beach is one of the best, we spent every day down there, 10 euro to hire 2 beds & parasol for a day. 15 min nice walk into puerto rico along the promenade.
18 euro to hire safe in room for week. No air con but we knew that when we booked, it was warm at night but not unbearable. We had to keep the patio door open for bedroom

Just returned after spending 10 days here. Apartments lovely we had room 306, we thought this was the best room as it had wonderful views and was next to everything. The Spar shop is great it has everything you will need and more.. Pool great albeit a bit cold but okay once your in. The pool bar is okay, bit overpriced though the people are very nice. Amadores beach is a 2min walk away, stunning beach. There are loads of places to eat here. Our favourite place was a steak house called Monaco's right at the end of beach. We ate there a few times, best steak we have ever had. Lovely friendly people here also. Would definately go back here. The Apartments are spotless as is the whole of Amadores. The weather was glorious, very very very hot.

Pam

Room Tip: Room 306, great views and closest to pool.

We visited Amadores in march 2013 and stayed in Terraza for 2 weeks. Hotel room was a duplex on the ground floor with small patio to the hotel yard. We travelled with 3 kids from 10years to 10 months of age and fitted in our room quite nicely.

The hotel contained a laundry room, wich was a nice plus for us. Hotel staff was so kind that they lended us their own dryer. Room cleaning worked fine and they changed the sheets and towels about twise a week.

The best part about the hotel was definitely the pool bar and their staff. Mel and Tracey are the owners and someone you should definitely turn to if you have something to ask about during your stay. The most open and friendly people I've ever met during our travels abroad. The pool bar hosts BBQ evenings with all you can eat twise a week. Viv makes the ribs with her special recipie and they are fantastic!!

Just outside the hotel yard you'll find a spar market where you can find all the basic needs for your stay.

All together the hotel seemed to handle their customers as vip's and not like they do in big hotel complexes. This is a place where we would definitely return to!
