Very nice and familiar hotel in excellent location

Posted Oct 1, 2014
Everything was perfect - location, contact with staff, cleaniness. Very good facilities, activities, familiar and really nice atmosphere. Any unforseen problems and circumstances in hotel. The highest mark for that price.

Quiet location, easy walk to beaches. Family of 4.

Posted Aug 29, 2014
2 adults and 2 teenage girls. Our room was secluded from the main walk way with a private patio and garden with a beautiful sea view. The rooms were cleaned twice during the week and the bed linen changed once. The air con is ceiling fans, but the windows in the bedroom had metal shutters, so opening the window and closing the shutter meant air circulation was not a problem. The room was advertised as bath tub only, but a combination bath/shower tap and shower curtain was provided. There was also a hairdryer provided in the bedroom. There is one external lift, but this will not take you directly to your floor. Steps are involved and our room had a small flight of 8 steps of its own which offered more privacy. The pool area was busy, all loungers taken at 10 am, we tended to use the pool later in the aternon from 4 pm and could find loungers available then. The restaurant had a range of choices available and a daily specials menu of starter and main for 10€ (three choices), this included a Spanish dish which was good as finding Spanish food proved difficult in town. Loads of water sports are offered at the beach in Puerto Rico and the sea offers great snorkeling. Both beaches are about a ten minute walk from the hotel, and the town centre is about a twenty minute walk. However a taxi cost on average 3€ (4€ with tip) so we used to walk into town and then get a taxi back. Amadores beach is very pretty and the quieter of the two.

Excellent apartment with sea views

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: We particularly liked the location of the apartment, in a quiet setting but with easy access to other places.
Cons: Although we didn't try the restaurant, the menu didn't look very inviting.
Location: A visit to Mogan is recommended, we went on the ferry from Puerto Rico. A drive or cycle into the hills is spectacular but not for the faint hearted.
We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights. The location was perfect for us, overlooking the sea with easy access to the walks along the seafront to either Amadores beach, which is beautiful, or the busier Puerto Rico. The apartment had everything we needed and we were extremely happy with the price we paid. There was plenty of room round the pool at all times and it had a good atmosphere. The beach bar with happy hour each evening was also very pleasant. Entertainment is provided each evening ranging from Elvis to Boy George, all excellent but not in your face if this isn't your kind of thing.

Bahia Blanca and Puerto Rico

Posted Sep 18, 2012
Pros: The sea view from our room
Cons: Poor customer service at Reception and on-site supermarket
Location: Puerto Rico is a VERY quiet resort - almost boring. There aren't enough shops, and it is too hilly to make walking comfortable
Even for moderately fit people, the resort of Puerto Rico is a walking challenge, especially in 30+ degree heat - the 15-minute walk to either Puerto Rico or Amadores beach includes some short inclines, so its not exactly a leisurely stroll, and there's nothing before you get to a beach, so it's a lengthy walk to do anything. The room at Bahia Blanca was clean, but the lack of basic manners from Reception and supermarket staff let the hotel down - in particular, the young(ish) guy in Reception who is the rudest front desk person I've ever had the misfortune of meeting, and is the kind of person who should not be in a customer-facing role because he lacks the basic skills. Also, there is no secure room to store luggage in after checking out when your return flight is a late one; when the majority of outgoing flights from Gran Canaria leave in the evening, a secure room to leave luggage after checking out should be provided - not some dinghy room - no door - in a prime position that anyone can walk in and out of. As a base, it was an OK hotel (we didn't use their pool or visit their restaurant/bar, so I can't comment on that), but I would not go back to Bahia Blanca because you don't feel welcomed - or even wanted - there (on checking in, I discovered that their idea of a "welcome pack" was a bottle of washing-up liquid and a sponge). I wouldn't go back to Puerto Rico either - it is too hilly and there isn't enough to do for those who don't wish to bake on the beach every day.

Great value, view, and location. Beautiful place.

Posted Jul 26, 2012
Pros: Our balcony was private, large and had a great view!
Cons: Lots of stairs, if you don't walk much you might want to find something else.
Location: 5 minute walk from both beaches and the town of puerto rico, couldnt find a better location.
This property was a great deal for the money. The location is great, right between all of the places you might want to go and as close to the beach as you can get (all hotels are off the beach and built into the hillside here, so don't look for a hotel ON the beach, you won't find it). We didn't pay for a ritz Carlton staff and so didn't expect it, they are friendly and helpful but are just locals and not professionally trained hotel staff. Don't plan to eat there as the food is expensive and forgettable, but the location is just minutes walk from so many good places to eat it would be a shame to eat at the hotel anyways. The view is the most amazing thing here, all properties get a sea view and it's breathtaking. Avoid garden properties unless you are traveling with a family, they are on the walkway level and provide less privacy but more room for kids to play. Find a map of the propert and try to request rooms on the north edge of each terrace or along the. Bottom level below the pool. These rooms provide the best view and combine the space and ambiance of a garden with the privacy and view of a balcony. We spent our honeymoon here and never felt like we had skimped or were taking a budget vacation even though we were saving a considerable amount over other places. We highly recommend this place for its value view and location.

You get what you pay for

Posted May 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was a good hotel, but not great. We loved the ocean view and it had all the amenities necessary, they even had a few groceries for us when we arrived!, (although the hair dryer hose had a hole in it and didn't work well). The pull out trundle bed was not very comfortable, but it was clean and provided the basic needs. Fortunately the hotel wasn't our highlight--it was the beach! And the hotel was close to 2 very nice beaches and a boat ride from a fun town with a market. Oh, and a nice gentleman greeted us on our first day and gave us some helpful hints--a very nice service! The pool closed too early we thought, but all in all it was inexpensive and allowed us to see some fun places and experience the warm tropic island without having to spend too much money. Thanks! If you're looking for luxury go somewhere else, but this was great for our needs.

Great location

Posted Mar 31, 2011
On our first night we had a problem with the fridge not working which was immediately sorted out and the receptionist and the maintenance guy were very accommodating and polite. The apartments are in excellent location between the main resort of Porto Rico and the nice beach at Almadores both within easy pleasant walking distance along a cliff path. The apartment was reasonable size very clean and had lovely garden which was not over-looked with sea views. We did avoid the evening entertainment as not really our thing. We did go to restaurant one night the food was okay wine better! Pool is not as big as it looks in picture but warm and long enough to get a bit of a swim in. Also had fun riding the funicular/lift up and down in the evenings. The whole lay-out of hotel was really good as you are not in some massive tower block so not noisy despite there being a number of apartments there was no sound from chairs being dragged across next door and we only heard our neighbours child cry a few times. We had a lovely stay and weather was amazing. Almadores beach was really good. Porto Rico the resort is a bit tacky in places, but we had a really excellent paella at a restaurant near the marina. The supermarket is also very convenient but a little bit over priced but that is what you expect with convenience. The bread that they sold was nice and freshly baked. Just don't buy tampons there £5 for a box of 30.

We had a lovely time at Bahia Blanca, it was perfectly located between two beches- both Less than 10 minutes away. We were also lose enough to the shopping centre and restaurants. Our apartment was clean and spacious and all of our needs were catered for. Would definitly recommend Bahia blanca to friends
