I have just returned from Altamores Apartments having spent a week there with seven other guys, it was for a 50th birthday party. Glad to say it is not a place to go for a drink up (as I said a 50th and not a 21st). The rooms are very basic, fortunately I had a twin and shared with a friend, next door three of the group were in together, most uncomfortable as the rooms are small. In my opinion there is "no way" these should be described as for four people. The sofas that double as beds are very hard and very uncomfortable. No air con, unless you want to hire one and pay for it, but there are ceiling fans. TV in the room, with a slot meter so you have to pay for it, how mean is that?.......There is a 2 ring stove, a small fridge freezer, no kettle so you have to boil water in a pot, not very safe when pouring. Bathrooms are tired, ours had a shower that was very good and powerful with lots of hot water. There are safes in the rooms, but again don't be surprised to have to pay for them. No WIFI, but guess what, yes you can pay for it at reception, only problem it is very unreliable, extremely slow and switches on and off as it pleases. The food area is quite small, but very very clean and staffed by very helpful smiley people who are exceptionally well trained. Unfortunately this area is also the entertainment area, so forget having a nice quiet meal as the entertainment host drowns out your conversations. The food was average to good, with one lousy meal which was Chinese night, so to be fair the food is quite ok. The food is always fresh and plenty of it. The kids there seemed to love it, lots of kiddie stuff like fish fingers, chicken nuggets etc. Breakfast is very good quality, but the T Bags are disgusting. There is a really nice mini mart on site, very well priced and well stocked for food, toiletries, sun creams, etc. The pool area is nice, lots of tables and beds and shade, so no problem there. The entertainment is below average in my opinion, but others in our group enjoyed it. It is very family friendly, as I say the staff are fantastic. Our room was kept very clean, sheets and towels changed as often as you want. This is not a place for couples, it has no romance what so ever, but for families and those on a budget it is good value. I have seen people complain about cockroaches, we saw a few, but this is a very hot warm climate and that is where cockroaches live. You wouldn't complain about elephants in Africa and India so why complain about cockroaches in warm places?...some people amaze me at times. Try the fishing trips from Puerto Rico beach, six of us went and it was a truly memorable day, great value and great fun. Drop me a line if you want to know anything else, and have a great trip.
