This place was amazing from the start to the finish of our holiday. We went for a 5 day break out of season and loved every minute of our stay. The accommodation was 5 * Our own luxury home, with televisions in the bedrooms and living room and a DVD player. The kitchen was immaculate with a hob and microwave which allowed us to cook simple meals if we required. (We had some amazing fish!) The restaurant was excellent and the food beautiful, although we can only comment on the breakfasts ( champagne and fresh orange juice :-)). Lots of cold meat/ cheeses and smoked salmon, bacon and eggs e.t.c and lovely fresh baked rolls as well as pastries, cereals and fresh fruit. We only didn't eat at night as we'd gone on a budget and the evening meals were quite expensive, ( in our opinion) but the standard was high so probably not for what you got.
The pool and grounds were immaculate and even though they were in the process of completing an additional pool, it didn't detract from the peaceful atmosphere.
The setting ,for us, couldn't be bettered. Set Above a couple of little cove beaches with steps leading down to them and a small restaurant/ cafe in the process of opening and nothing else in the near vicinity.
Walking along the cliff tops in either direction was a joy. That said, if you prefer action, entertainment and plenty of things to do at night, then this probably isn't the place for you. A short taxi ride would take you to a nearby resort village though if you want the best of both worlds.
We hired a car which was very cheap to do and not far to get to Portomaio and lots of shops!
Would have loved to explore the area more but time didn't allow as our deal included a lovely massage each ( the masseur was brilliant) and a cleopatra bath ( honey milk and essential oils, soothing music,soft lights in the bath and candlelight. We certainly felt relaxed! Robes and towels are provided and the swimming pool was lovely after a bit of a session in the gym.
The staff went out of their way to be helpful, and were very polite and always had a smile.
I only wish we had more time there!! A romantic anniversary treat maybe.

Just back from second stay here and so impressed have booked a third. Everything about the place is excellent. Staff, accommodation, food, location etc etc. couldn't have been better and this high standard has been maintained from our first visit a year ago. Long may this continue. Not a large development in size like some in the area and the better for this. Superb!

We would go back in a heartbeat. Wilson at the reception was an incredible help to us while making our reservations and such a strong ambassador for the hotel. I couldn't wait to meet him upon our arrival. We walked around planning a party in our heads - would love to hang out with our best friends here for a weekend. Perfect for events, reunions, weddings.
The kids lived in the pools. The gym was sufficient. The Spa area a pure joy (Thank you Monica) the restaurant a visual delight - yummy champagne breakfasts!
The Villas made us feel at home. They were well decorated and well planned. We chose not to eat in the restaurant over Christmas as we found some beautiful fish at the local market. Our kitchen was well equipped for all of our cooking needs - including a white tablecloth. The bathroom with its skylight and dual sinks made it a pure joy to bath..for an extended period of time :) We will definitely return!

Room Tip: All the villas are nice but ask for the villas closest to the pool area.

This hotel is amazing, it's almost in the middle of nowhere and everywhere in Algarve.
During summer Algarve can be pretty chaotic and Suites Alba can deliver the privacy anybody needs and the quiteness to rest.
This is one of my favourite places in Portugal.

Room Tip: If you can choose a room with a sea view you will not regret.

Just returned from a pleasant short break here. Very impressed with the suite and staff and certainly feel it was real value for money and the rate that we paid.
Only let downs for us were the large amount of flies around the breakfast buffet (very off putting, we stuck to the packaged items) and also the temperature of the indoor pool. It was rather chilly, would have been nice if it was a few degrees warmer during the cooler months.
Certainly would consider staying again but possibly on the room only basis due to the issues with flies at breakfast.

Room Tip: we had a one bed villa with spa bath, very comfortable and spacious with nice view from lounge area

My husband and I married at Alba Suites in August 2013 (my mom has also written a review below) and I just needed to express how amzing the venue is, the staff were and the overall experiance was! Tania and her team did everything possible for me to have the wedding I dreamed of, even down to building a special entrance for my arrival into the Lounge Zero area so I could walk down the aisle. The decoration was beautiful, the attention to detail was first class and Tania even sync'd my playlist so it would play through the portuguese system (which wasn't an easy task!) I just want to say thank you to everyone at Suites Alba for making it the best day of my life and wish I could do it again every year! Thank you x
