Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm rating the Eirasol as a budget apartment not comparing to a hotel.
So I'm giving it 4* based on what it is, a cheap basic apartment. Don't let that put you off, I knew what I was booking after reading previous reviews and for the £21 a night I paid I wasn't expecting much.
The room was for myself and my 9 year old son, a few days before June 2022.
On arrival we were greeted nicely and checking in was very quick.
Opened the room door and was surprised at how big the apartment was. It seems its had a fresh lick of paint recently too. All the apartments are the same, twin bedroom, bathroom, small kitchen area and a large living room onto a balcony.
The bedroom was adequate, no thrills. Two single beds, that's it. Not the best mattresses but we managed to sleep on them.
Bathroom, no really issues apart from a underpowered shower. Otherwise clean.
Kitchen is what you would expect for a self catering unit, again clean.
Living area had these two bed/sofas, not sofa beds. Dated and tired.

The only negatives were:
1 towel, yes 1. Even though multiple people could be in the room they only give one. When I went to reception to ask for a second towel it was like I asked for a Bentley to take me to town. Further towels did appear at night.
Iffy electrics on a couple of plug sockets in the lounge.
The pool. Day one there was an umbrella in the pool and the water was green. Day two, umbrella in pool but maintained arrived.
Day three, started to clean the pool. Day four pool looked much better and someone risked going in!

The positives:
1. Super cheap apartment
2. Location is spot on, 5 mins from the Strip and 15 mins from the Old Town by foot.
3. Supermarkets literally outside.
4. Superb bakery for breakfast opposite.

So there you have my review. As the famous saying goes "pay your money, take your chance".
I'll come back!

We were absolutely delighted with this apartment. It was absolutely spotless , well equipped and the location of our apartment on the ground floor with direct access to the pool was perfect.
Staff at reception were a delight . There is no housekeeping carried out but towels were changed every 3/4 days and fresh bedding was provided after 7 days.
For value for money you cannot go wrong. Be aware that you will be asked for 200.00 euro deposit when checking in, so make sure you have cash available.

We stayed here for 9 nights in July as a family of 5. After reading the reviews we were very nervous about how are holiday would go.
We were pleasantly surprised and had the best time. On arrival check in wasnt until 4pm but we were able to leave our luggage and make use of the pool and pool bar which the kids loved. We had to pay €200 deposit on arrival which wasn't an issue as we knew this in advance. We paid cash and was returned without fuss after a quick check of the room upon checkout.
2 Bedroom Appartments are spacious and clean. Towels were changed after 4 days and there are rubbish bins outside the entrance of the appartments to dispose of rubbish from Appartments.
Pool bar is really cheap for food and drink. We used this the majority of the holiday. Supermarket which is very cheap is a 5min walk away. The bar in the complex wasn't open when we were there but that didn't bother us as we went to the old town for meals and drinks in the evenings. Reception were more than happy to book taxis for us. They were also very helpful in booking excursions for us. There was a few groups of lads and girls staying while we were there but they were absolutely fine. We had the pool most of the day to ourselves they never emerged until after 3pm. This suited us perfect. Kids enjoyed watching the lads dive in and staff were always on hand of it got abit rowdy (which it never did).

All in all we had a fab time and would definitely go back.

Just back from a week's stay at Eirasol apartments, only a large and small towel each also no bath mat for stepping out of shower on day 3 we requested fresh towels, on day 5 after 4 requests we finally got them . There is no maid service,,no one came to clean apartment which I found a bit unusual???? Also pool area is not clean ,broken glass, dirty mattresses for beds. We won't be back so disappointed and worst part which was at the weekend there was 3 stag parties so people beware

We have just finished a stay at Eirasol and can't fault the place. The room we had was spacious and really clean. It came equipped with everything you need for a short self catering break
One thing we really felt was a strong point of this hotel were the reception staff. They were incredibly polite and helpful, in particular Debora who genuinely couldn't do more to make our stay comfortable and was always smiling.

If you are looking for relative low cost accomodation in an ideal location for both the strip and the old town then this is ideal. Both are walkable and there are a range of close supermarkets and restaurants to cater for most tastes close to Eirasol.

We would definitely return to this hotel.

I stayed here on the 3/5/2023 till 8/5/2023 they asked me to pay a damage deposit which was not stated on the booking. Paid 200 euros. On leaving I was informed the deposit would be refunded as we left the room as we found it. I was advised it would take between 8-14 days for the refund which is a joke considering they wanted it upfront with no warning. damage deposit still not refunded from Eirasol - By Portugalferiasstay nearly 3 weeks now and that’s working days not including weekends I’ve waited. Still haven’t seen no refund. All correspondence from them has seemed to have stopped also. I’ve emailed and what’s apped the apartment reception. Also the way the woman on the night desk screamed at my friend because he lost his room card was shocking! Do not stay here!

Staff were helpful in getting our room to us sooner than the 4pm for which we were grateful. Upon check in, I was asked for €200 cash deposit, something never mentioned in travel agents when booking. I was informed I would not be given a receipt so opted for a card payment as I was a little concerned about this. We left our room spotless and cleaned everything and also left some gifts for reception staff unfortunately I have still not been refunded my deposit. They don't know how to refund debit cards. They have promised me the money would be paid back into my account and I am still left in the lurch, surprise surprise still no money. I am skint after holiday and am shirt I food and medicine and was relying on the €200. Extremely disappointing process. I cannot recommend booking here given this situation . Many people will also find the beds uncomfortable, but place does have Aircon and safe in living room.

Some reviews for this complex are quite poor, however our experience was very positive. The reception staff were so welcoming and friendly. The apartment was spotless and well supplied with all the equipment one could need. Pillows were poor but we used cushions from the living room so problem solved. Great value

I visited this resort two weeks ago where we rented out an apartment for one week, everything seemed good from the pictures and the cheap price. It seemed too good to be true!!! Mosquitos in the bed and lots of dead flies and spiders on the floor. The apartment itself had a very bad smell and when we told them about it when we first arrived they said they could do nothing about it and we would just have to endure it I couldn’t believe how the hospitality could be this bad.The hotel offers a pool bar online but when we got there we realised there was no pool bar just a pool that hasn’t been cleaned for years. I felt like I was in a prison cell more than actually paying for our holiday. After one night of staying here we decided to move up the road to tropical sol. On telling them this they refused to give us back our 200 euro deposit and refused any sort of refund. If you are looking for somewhere family friendly or even a get away with friends I can not recommend enough to stay away from this filthy hotel.
