I was participating in a summer internship in Tucson, and the apartment complex we were originally living at had just undergone a change in ownership and management, and it was headed on a downward spiral. After a month of living there… Full Review ▶

I can heartily recommend Altamira to anyone. Manager, leasing agent and maintenance director all top notch. So welcoming and friendly--the best I've ever experienced. Lots of upgrading going on, even since I moved in--new kitchen units, new washers and dryers, and… Full Review ▶

This is a great place to live. I think what sold me on it was the exceptionally friendly and helpful attitude of the management when I initially moved in seven months ago. I just renewed my lease. Thank you for making… Full Review ▶

I'd like to update my earlier review, as apparently the management company listened to our complaints and transferred our previous, well-loved and respected property manager back here. Oh happy day! Full Review ▶

I recently looked at these apts and loved them. However after reading all these reviews I've changed my mind. Not due to the fact that so called manager is "rude or racist" but because who wants to live in a place… Full Review ▶

I moved into Altamira back in 2010 sight unseen based on a 100% rating on Apartmentratings.com, and it turned out to be a worthy gamble. For the next 2 years or so the complex was run smoothly having a great staff… Full Review ▶

View is great. Facilities really old and outdated. Residents great and for the most part quiet. Past management was great all the way back 4 managers. New manager us rude and uncaring. Ruins the good reputation May be time to move… Full Review ▶

Horribly staffed with rude, racist individuals who tongue in cheek discriminate against & forget their own tenants. No security when things do in fact go on which should involve the authorities. Unreasonably restrictive as to what is permissibly visible on their… Full Review ▶

I've lived in numerous apartments in numerous cities. Altamira is by far the best of them all, in terms of value for your money. Management and maintenance will quickly address any problems or questions you have. The location is very safe,… Full Review ▶

I have lived at altamira since 2004 and I have enjoyed it very much. Before moving in here I looked all over for something better. Sure you can find newer apartments but they will usually cost $60-$100 more per month for… Full Review ▶

Beautiful, quiet place with nice neighbors and solid management. Other things I enjoy are the wildlife that walks by my sliding glass door (bobcats, rabbits, lizards, squirrels, birds), the view, and the pool that nobody ever uses. Full Review ▶

The bottom line is that Altamira is an excellent community. The grounds are great and the views are the best. The price is very competitive also. My only complaint is that you can definitely hear your neighbor above if you live… Full Review ▶

The person who said that Altamira has thin walls must have lived here a long time ago. I have never heard a single on of my neighbors. The grounds are extremely quiet and very well kept, and the management is awsome.… Full Review ▶

Landlord/staff were VERY helpful and attentive. Studio was small but had a great view of the mountains and a patio for watching the famed AZ sunsets. Pool/deck/exercise room overlooking the city can´t be beat. I´d return in a heartbeat. Full Review ▶
