My Sister & I stayed here for 10 nights in October, the apartments are spotless and cleaned on a daily basis, the staff are always very helpful and it is both close enough to restaurants as well as being far enough away from the strip in albufeira, it is only a 30 min walk to the old town or €5 in a taxi, this is my second time staying here and would definitely recommend it

The place is brilliant with very large modern apartments and most importantly spotlessly clean.
Upon arrival we only found limited cooking pots (1 frying pan and 1 saucepan) But asked reception for more and within an hour had another set.
There was also no toaster but they gave us one but we had to give them a €20 refundable deposit which seemed a bit strange but we got our deposit back upon checking out.
The location is ideal for a quiet holiday but only 5 minutes walk to the madness of the strip so the best off both worlds.

Room Tip: As always pool view.

We arrived at the hotel and couldn't believe how nice it was! Everything was immaculate!

The rooms we huge, very modern and had a large balcony. As others have said, there is no oven but our room had everything else (toaster, microwave, coffee machine, hob and fridge) although there was a limited amount of pans provided so we did struggle to cook our own cooked breakfast.
The pool area is beautiful, again very modern and always had plenty of free sun beds, the only downside was the price of the drinks at the bar (4 euro for a bottle of desperados).
We only visited the bar area once as it was always empty and had no atmosphere, however there is a small games room with a pool table and a few arcade games which we did spend a bit of time in with a pint from the bar.

Great location, 5 minute walk to the start of the strip with loads of bars, restaurants, takeaways and shops, 20 minute walk in the other direction to the old town, however you can also walk up the beach which we did a few times and there are plenty of places there too.

Best hotel we saw around Albufeira and we did quite a lot of walking around. Would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: I'm marking the fitness centre and room service as 3 because we didn't use them so cant say...

Stayed here from 17th oct for 1 week. Lovely hotel, not one thing I could complain about. Apartments ultra modern and spotless. Very good value for such a lovely 4star hotel . Staff very friendly. front of hotel has sun in the morning and back in the evening. 5 min from strip.my only small gripe about the place is no sweeping brush ant tiles in kitchen black so you have to wait for cleaners to sweep up every day ( WHICH THEY DO). Hope to be back!!!!!

4 star quality hotel, spotless and in a great location. For the price paid the hotel was well above any of its competitors in the local area. The hotel is very secure and main entrance is locked at 10pm with access only by residents using their key cards. a nightclub directly opposite which opens at 1am on Friday and saturday, no real issues slight noise heard 1 night. The self catering option is slighlty basic with no kettle or oven but the surrounding bars and restaurants are so resonable its makes for a cheap hotel like the old days. No music around the pool area and always plenty of sun beds, every aspect was perfect. 5 minutes walk up the hill to the strip. Nice 25 minute walk down hill to the old town. average price of beer 1 euro 50, average meal per head 7/8 euro in town, hotel prices slightly more expensive but well worth it. Try this hotel u will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: pool view, sun most of the day and people watch, try the hotspot cafe at the top of the hill for lu...

We just returned from this hotel today. As in previous reviews excellent location. Just a short walk to the strip which has lots of bars, restaurants and shops. A hidden gem of a restaurant is Estrela de Oura. Excellent food, service and value for money. You won't be disappointed. The hotel is so clean both the rooms, reception and pool area. Very friendly staff. The accommodation is second to none. Very spacious and the balcony is class! We will definitely return. Only downfall there is no toaster or oven! The restaurant across the road does a good breakfast, however beware if you go on the traditional Portugese evening as we were told to be quiet as you are not allowed to speak when they are playing!! The waitress who came over to us was extremely patronising and we did not return after that.
The Old town is a must. A good 20 minute walk or you could get there on the little train. Beware of the open topped bus. there is very little to see on this trip. We ended up getting of at the old town and taking it the second day just to the Old town again. It cost 13euro each which is too much. Book your taxi with flexi travel if you can over the internet to collect you at the airport. We took this taxi home and it cost 33.60 for 4 of us. When we arrived we just took one outside and it cost 52 euros - so a big difference.
There is a small beach if you turn right when you come out and walk to just beside the hotel at the end (dead end) there is an electric gate and immediately left is a pathway which is covered by a bush and doesn't look like it would take you anywhere but goes down to a lovely wee beach with a restaurant.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be overlooking the pool.

We have just retuned from these apartments. Very nice and clean. Very spacious and pool area lovely. Very friendly. Very quiet as they don't allow noise after midnight, so very good if you have a family. Not a lot here for my 4 year old son but despite that he loved playing in the pool with his new friends. Very modern and had everything you need. Around 10 minutes walk to strip and around 15 minutes to the beach. There is a supermarket next to the KISS Nightclub but if you carry on walking another few minutes a more larger supermarket and a lot cheaper is available. Next to that is a place you can book tickets to zoo marineland, slide& splash etc. Very good and the bus picks up 2 minutes from the apartments. Would definitely recommend!!!!!
