I always look on here upon booking a holiday, And I know myself you always get the moaners, but what I will say is the truth. After booking a holiday here I couldn't wait to get there as hotel on photos looks wonderful, And the majority of the views I have read are also good too. For a start I never book anything below four star BUT after seeing photos of this hotel it looked a 4 star standard although it was only a three. There is no air conditioning throughout the hotel which you really do need there was two fans one in the living room one in the bedroom which obviously just circulated the warm air. The sheets didn't get changed our whole stay and the towels were only changed once which to me is unhygienic. Under the beds (in the bedroom) were rolling in dust couldn't of been cleaned in weeks! found tablets under the bed that had obviously been there from the previous holiday makers. I didn't expect to share my hotel room which cockroaches and ants. If you are going with children don't bother.. there is hardly any entertainment for them just the swimming pool ! there is no comfortable chairs to sit on daytime or evening I felt as though I was back at school in the canteen, plastic chairs! You can hire the air condition units for 50 euro per seven days which when you book all inclusive you expect to have air conditioned facilities. food... morning and night time luke warm average quality one night where food was enjoyable was the Chinese night the rest was CRAP!!!! Although I personally don't go on a holiday to watch tv based on the fact that again you pay for all inclusive you have to pay for the tv to even turn on. very dated hotel could do with kim and aggie and a revamp. all in all my rating is a 2*. please take my review on board to avoid disappointment! Jamie G is the only good thing about the hotel.

returned back home on the 28th September after staying for 2 weeks all inclusive. first of all what a great host Jamie g is the guy was brilliant , tried his best to get everyone involved and I think that is what made the holiday so enjoyable. The food was great with something there for everybody, the staff behind the bar did a great job too and were so helpful and friendly. Our room was up above the basketball court , it was clean, comfortable and had a great view. We met some really nice people and enjoyed their company, we hope to go back the same time next year and hopefully the rest of the gang can make it too.

Just back on the 26th September after staying for a week all inclusive. Food was good plentiful and there was always something you enjoyed. Themed nights every night from Chinese, Barbeque, Italian, etc. This property is only 3 stars but it was well worth the money we paid. There were only the two of us, we had a large room with sitting room, kitchenette, toilet with shower no bath, and large bedroom with plenty of storage, tv on pay as you go, but we never came on holiday to watch tv. The drink side of things were fantastic you helped yourself to beer, wine, spirits and soft drinks and you didn't have the problem of having to wait to be served, you also never had the problem of some hotels where you had to wait your turn for a drink while someone waited for a coffee. The coffee/tea were seperate from the bar and available all day, well till 11.00pm which was long enough. If you wanted more you could always go out, where dependant on where you went prices were reasonable.
The pool area and sunbeds were very relaxing pool was quite cool for the time of year but i still enjoyed it. Sunbeds were plentiful but i was informed that earlier in the year this was not so.But all i was concerned with was the here and now and will be back especially at this time of year, one of the most relaxing holidays i have had as both myself and my wife really enjoyed ourselves. It is the first all inclusive holiday i have been on and thats quite a lot, that i have stayed in most nights as the entertainment was as good as any i have seen outside, during the day Jamie the entertainment guy organised various pool side games from, pool, darts, basketball, football, tabletennis and quizes, there was also music being played from 11.00 am which we really enjoyed as it was our taste in music, it wasn't to loud either. Overall we rated this hotel highly, we have stayed in Puerto Rico before in 4 star accommodation and would rate this hotel alongside them especially the entertainment. We will come back maybe with the grand kids as i think they would enjoy it as well.

Room Tip: as there were only 90 rooms i believe all of them were as good as the other dependant on what you were looking for we stayed in room 429 where you got a terrific view over Amadores beach every ground floor room had sunbeds and table and chairs and, clothes horse, it was one big sun trap.

Came back on 13th September after staying here all inclusive for 2 weeks. The food was ok but was repeated too often, the beds were the comfiest i have ever slept in on any holiday i have had abroad, we were in room 407 which was handy for everything and gave you a lovely view over the beach at Amadores. We travelled as a couple but had friends with their young son staying holidaying here also, the entertainment was good some nights and not so good other's, we taxied in to Puerto Rico a good few time's over the 2 weeks as the football was on and the hotel didn't show it, having a footie mad hubby this didn't go down too well lol. We met some really lovely people while ther and i would return, the only downside to this is the bar, it shuts dead on 11 and your almost ordered to go to bed then, i feel it should be open after that for customers who wouldn't mind paying for drinks once the all incluvise curfew looms. There was supposed to be cake's ect between 5 and 6, i was there 2 weeks and never saw these cake's. Jamie G does a good job entertaining the guests and Arianna in the happy feet salon was lovely as well. Our room was cleaned every day except for sunday and tuesday's and our cleaner was lovely, she was hugging me for dear life the day we went home which i thought was lovely. You can hire air con from reception but the ceiling fans did the job at night. All in all we had a great holiday here and although not planning to go back next year we will deffo go back at sometime in the near future,,,,,,,ps, only saw 5 cockroaches the whole time i was there which is a plus :-)

Befor i start this will be a very long review as i really would like to cover everything i can possibly think off lol so here goes.....4th time we have visited Gran Canaria but are first time as a family for 2 weeks and all inclusive at the Altamadores.
First i will start with the arrival, this was very straight forward and very fast but the map they hand you looks very daunting as its just a penciled in line indercating your room number. We did get lost but a very nice couple helped us on are way. We stopped in room 425 which was not so far away from the pool and eating area and the views were fantastic. Are appartment was very large and to be fair i would have prefered a smaller one as there was familys with more children and they found it a struggle in the smaller appartments. There was only myself partner and 4 year old son and i just found the appartment way to big for us. The hotel was fully booked so no move was avalible. The living area and kitenette was lovely and the kitchen provided all pots..pans etc nice to have a fridge/freazer microwave..toster also a coffee machine. The only item missing was a kettle and i really think the hotel should start to provide these, i love a cup off coffee as soon as i awake and had to boil water in a pan to achieve this which was fine but i did miss a kettle. TV also is provided but euros needed my son loved having the tv. The bedroom was very large to with very good size wardrobes and plenty off space and yes the beds are very comfortable they have memory foam mattresses to. I did have to request more pillows tho as 1 per person is just not enough but i just asked the cleaner and this was sorted in a few hrs. The only issue i had was no proper bed for my 4 year old son there was no way i was letting him sleep in the lounge on a settee so he slept with us for 2 whole weeks but near the end off are holiday someone told me you could request a camp bed which if i had kown previous i would have done this. Now the bathroom was the only room i didnt rate yes again it was big but it really did need a good clean, the tiles were very dirty and the shower tiles had alot off mould and the shower curtain was abit minging to..the claener did clean as i watched her one day but it needed a really good clean lol. The shower was very powerfull but i really think there should be a fan in that room to it was awful coming out the shower because theres no windows and its just to warm it made me feel sick trying to try my hair in there(hairdryer also provied) and also no bath but we knew this and it didnt bother us but if you have young children who like the bath this may be a problem. The ceiling fans were fine kept you cool at night but living room was abit slow on the move but bedroom was fine and no need to hire air con. Air con was 50 euros per week to hire.All windows had blacked out curtains to which really helped in the day. Safe was very good to not nothing cheap this cost 30 euros and you get 10 back on departure. Last thing is the Terraced which again was very large and we had table chairs and 2 sunbeds.

The pool was very nice but as we went in august very busy with all the children but there was always plenty off sunbeds no mad rush at all. Nice small pool for the kiddies to. Sun is around this pool all day long so was very hot. 2 lots off toilets which was kept very clean at all times. The happy feet shop was fantastic lots off bits and bobs you can buy also the swap box is just a brill idea we used it near the end off the holiday as i didnt want to buy more sun cream, you just swap your item for another. Andreanna is lovely to.
Now for the food i found the food to be very good for all inclusive yes it did get reppeative but there was plenty and for all those people who say its rubbish and disscusting you are just so wrong. We managed 2 weeks on the food without any problems and deserts are fab. There is 3 themed nights per week bbq..chinese and canaria night we found chinese to be the best and im sorry but the bbq was not all that, ive read so many reviews on here saying bbq night is the best but i woulnt agree, it was just 3 items bbq chicken legs..spareribs and steak and that was it. The drinks are fine and there is a good selection off spirits ...local beer.. red/white wine also sangaria also lots off pop. i did read on a review all drinks are served in plastic cups this is not the case but i would advice you to keep hold off your glass as they do get low,if you want top branded stuff you do have to pay. Meals start with breckfast 8 till 10.30...Lunch 12 till 4.30 and your evening meal 6 till 9.30 there should have been cake and tea at 4.30 but we never seen this happen once in 2 weeks and your self service drinks start from 11am till 11pm and they stopped this on the dot. But i was very impressed with the staff in the eating area they work long hrs and food is coming out constant they just dont stop at all eveywhere always clean and tidyand they are all very friendly.
Jamie G does a great job and he works hard to gets everyone involved but hes not pushy. Day time activities include killer pool..killer darts..water polo..and the brill pool side quiz night time we have bingo and other quizzes and the entertainment was really good.
Thats about it really becase im not going to talk about outside the hotel lol but i will mention to all the people who moan how far up the hill it is maybe next time you book a holiday read up on reviews and you will no this the amount off people that moaned about this while we was there was unreal.

The best bits with this holiday was the people we met, we met so meny and they was all lovely first hotel we have ever encounted such friendly and helpfull people and they was not all english to which was nice. Made some really good friends who we will stay intorch with.

The bad bits were really the reception staff were quite miserable didnt really smile alot. And i think they should have a snack bar my son eats crips everyday and no snacks were avliable. Also the bar shuts at 11 so after this no drinks are avliable we did stock up befor 11 and also brought drinks from the shop on site but 11 oclock we found it abit to early to go back home and thought it would have been better to have the bar open till 12 with the option of paying, yes we no its a family resort but come on we are on holiday.

We enjoyed every minite and would defo go back at some point and im sorry for the long review lol
