Situated on a hillside in the popular resort of Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria, the Blue Star Apartments afford breath-taking views out to sea in a quiet, peaceful location. Puerto Rico benefits from excellent weather, being located on the southern tip of the island just across the ocean from the Sahara. This charming complex has attractive white-washed apartment blocks with bright, clean and comfortable rooms. Guests looking for a cheap holiday in the sun will be able to opt for self-catering and cook meals in their room using the well-equipped kitchenette provided. Alternatively, meals can be taken in the restaurant on the 8th floor of the hotel, where guests can enjoy a great range of international dishes while admiring the stunning views of the Atlantic.
The Blue Star Apartments have an excellent location for those who enjoy their holidays near the sand and sea, with the gorgeous Gran Canarias Puerto Rico beach just a few minutes’ walk down the hillside from the hotel.
