its irrelevant number of people you book as long as up to 4... you dont pay per person

my point is you dont need to be large group to get the price at these appts....

your post would be more helpfull if was more generic

ie book up to 14 days for...... rather than great holiday for 8 people.... reducing your audience

You do realise the pound is as strong as it has been against the euro for over 18 months?

If it is expensive it is nothing to do with the exchange rate.....

I was in Las Palmas last year and cycled all the way to Puerto Rico. Guess what! It is the worst part of the whole island! The beach is human made fake bitch and extremly dirty!

All around is cliffs and no green! If you want to spend 2 weeks in between cliffs and rocks with a horrile beach, go ahead and book your disaster holiday.

My advise is to go to Las Palmas and spend £100 or so extra... Cheap price tho if you wanna go somewhere just for the sun and stay in the hotel around the swimming pool AND/OR if you renting a car... Hot price so im still voting hot...
#15
I love Gran Canaria and Puerto Rico is an ok place for a day out but personally I wouldn't want to stay there. It is as described above.
#16
i found it to be full of chavs and timeshare sellers in this resort ! pity cos its a nice island
#17
Resort is a real hell hole, really the worst resort i've ever stayed in, wouldn't go back there again if someone paid me.
#18
you find to get hotels on their own is around this price its not uncomman and the cheapest flights i can see are around £200 so its not that good after all
#19
I used to work here a couple of years back and the weather is great in the winter but the tourist areas are a nightmare with every scammer under the sun(no pun intented)Great fun though if you want sun and beer!Just don't be surprised if you win 600euro on a scratchcard,surprising how many winners there is:roll:
Hot Deal!

i understand we used to go every year it was a cheap holiday i even belong to one of the hotel loyalty clubs (to get cheap hotel prices) but as the euro came in everything went up and every year got more expensive

lots of accomodation is cheap in October, for three years running we paid £49 for a week(half term) in a really nice hotel in Majorca worked out just over £8 a week each, we only stopped as it was dropped by the English travel comapnies and became all German clientelle.
#28
Stayed at this hotel in 2000. It was a hell hole then. The rooms had poor fitting balcony doors that could be opened by lifting and if you wanted a safe it was out by the entrance and was about 30 years old. I'd say the only people who will like this hotel and resort are the sort of people who are going to get drunk and sleep all day. I'd want paying to go back to this resort.

So basically any country with the Euro as its currency is expensive?

The days of going abroad and getting a pint for 50p are long gone............

Opinion may be split about Puerto Rico as a resort but I really like Gran Canaria as some of the island's interior scenery is stunning. I stayed in Puerto Rico a couple of years ago and the resort is not that bad. Picturesque it isn't but the marina and harbour areas are very nice. We also had a hire car for the whole holiday so were not restricted to the resort anyway. Can't comment on the quality of these apartments as we stayed at the Terrazamar Sunsuite apartments which were great but there are lots of reviews on the links below. Just round the corner from Puerto Rico is the excellent man-made Amadores beach which has fine white sand and boasts almost Caribbean-like azure blue sea. It helps that the resort is located in the sunniest part of the island and of course the weather in October is fantastic.

From what i heard, Puerto Rico died last year with the recession.

Went there 3 years ago and was not bad, went to Maspolomas last year and everyone said about 50/75% of Puerto Rico had shut down.
There wasnt much in it before, few bars and 1 over-priced "nightclub" if you can call it that.
If a lot shut down, i wouldnt go back.
Most places bars/restaurants etc charged a lot as it was quiet so there wasnt anywhere else cheaper to go, can see it being worse now.

Most places went All-Inclusive to get the hotels booked and killed off the restaurant trade, everyone stays in hotels for free food and bevvy, so the restaurants and bars dont get near the business they used to and is apparently a ghost town now.

I have an apartment in Gran Canarias in Playa del cura.

Puerto Rica "Town" is an absolute hell hole. It's like Blackpool on Steroids. Lots of street traders / time share sellers / pain in the arse types. I'd avoid it like the plague.

Las Palmas is the islands city. I'd equally avoid there.

Playa De Englais (check spelling), is good for shopping, has banks - other than that avoid!

The street traders / time share sellers / random lottery sellers are really annoying. Politely tell them to go away. If any of them tell you you've won ANYTHING - it's a ploy to get you to go to a time share sales pitch - which you won't be able to get away from.

Most of the nice places are further round the south of the island. I'd recommend (in order)

Puerto Mogan - has beach, markets on Friday (can be a bit wiffy occasionally).The port is beautiful. Food is a little more expensive here as it's quite up market, but some restaurants offer some good value "fixed price" meals.) There is a good supermarket there which is 30% cheaper than the smaller shops - Dinomarket. Some of the 2euro sparkling wine is surprisingly good. The drive to Mogan is quite daunting if you're not happy on the roads.

Amadoras Beach - Fantastic man-made beach. Lots to eat & drink there. I personally get there at 3-4pm and enjoy the afternoon sun until 7pm. Restaurants change style for evening dining.

Melonaris- Very sleepy (quiet) beach with some nice restaurants - nice coastal walk to Maspolmas. Chao Chao's is worth a visit.

Maspolmas: Upmarket tourist shopping / eating area. Very pretty. The Chinese and the Italian eateries are particularly good. Worth a walk around. Has good disabled parking (by lighthouse via taxi rank).

Puerto Rica "Port" - Nice to have a look around. Shops & beach. Also has a good PADI centre. Go to Oscars for breakfast :) Various other water sports on offer. "Submarine boat" worth doing - aim to half their ticket price.

Restaurant Guantanamo in Tauro Beach - You MUST eat there atleast ONCE. The Flambé peppered fillet steak is amazing. Family friendly. Ring to book.

Oh come on, food and drink isnt dear in any popular euro resort, its only dear if your a muppet that goes to the expensive places. In the morning look for the cheap small British cafes/bars, the more low key and run down the better. Then later on find a cheap eatery and get steak and chips/spag bol etc or even the chinese buffet places that are very cheap.Just use your head.

Dont buy any jewelery, glasses or watches off the african sellers unless its only £3 for some sun glasses etc. Dont get suckered it timeshare or other scams. Buy excursions off your own back, use taxis and be polite they are pretty cheap. I find the roads in the canaries very difficult to understand so better to use a taxi. Dont buy any electrical items from the electrical shops, they rip you off any chance they get and things like cameras, ipods and games consoles are cheaper here anyway, (and items here are genuine with guarantees and all the correct wires, batteries charger memory cards etc) And if you have a small portable LCD Tv or laptop with tv card the take that with you and connect it to the hotel/apartments aerial instead of using those coin operated tvs.

And do we have to have the whole "chavvy, like blackpool" complaints on every cheap holiday thread? Its getting abit tired, these are resorts created for the British and German working class and youngsters that want to club it, so dont be surprised if its not upto monte carlo levels of class and sophistication (whatever that means):roll:
