Stayed here for a week in June.
Arrived at the Areias and was quickly checked in and given our room key. The rooms were to a good standard and of a really good size and the facilities in the kitchen area were excellent, as we were only there a week we didn't use the kitchen to it's full potential but if I was there for 2 weeks i'm sure I would have. I did rent a toaster for 20€ which you get back once you return it. The pool area is lovely and plenty of loungers available to soak up the sun. I did find the pool bar slightly expensive but the fresh OJ and smoothies were lovely and worth the money. The hotel is in a good location if you fancy the beach, old town or the strip. Its all in walking distance. There's a lovely restaurant opposite that I would recommend for lunch or dinner, we ate their twice for lunch and twice for evening meal food was good and very reasonable. I would 100% recommend this hotel for exploring the albuferia.

Just back from brilliant week in Areias Village.

Location: Brilliant location - 5 min walk to The Strip (lively, full of bars etc) 15 min walk to Old Town (far nice restaurants however bit dearer on average). Taxi to Old Town 5 min at €5. Beach only 5-10 min walk. In the middle of everything!

Hotel: Rooms are very spacious, always spotless and have everything you would expect for self catering. We hired a safe €10 deposit & €2.50 per day. No toaster however you can hire this too. We had room facing pool, which was great view, sun I'm morning and not in afternoon. We had to stay an extra night (cancelled flight) and changed to other side of hotel. Still fine but slightly noisier due to road being closer (nothing to complain about though!). Ignore anything about noise from Kiss nightclub - we didn't hear a thing and it was open.

Pool: Pool is quiet enough so bare this in mind if you are expecting entertainment etc, though we loved it. Easy to get sun loungers, and staff try and stop people reserving them for long periods. Only downfall the pool is in shade from 5pm or so but just move your sun lounger onto grass for sun. We had burgers at pool bar on last day, €5 each, nothing special, probably making your own stuff!

Overall a superb hotel, nothing to fault at all. Staff are so helpful and lovely. And brilliant for money too!! 10/10.

I stayed here with my husband for a week in early June and we had a fabulous time. We arrived mid-morning and were told we couldn't check in until 3pm, which we were aware of when we booked, however we were able to get changed in the downstairs shower area and leave our suitcases in a locked room next to reception. We did ask at 2pm if our room was ready only because we'd not had much sleep and were able to check in a bit earlier.

We had a pool view room on the second floor which was lovely. As mentioned in other reviews the only thing that really lets the hotel down are the beds which were a bit flimsy. Aside from that the room was great with a spacious living area and plenty of room in the bedroom with lots of wardrobe space. We were self catering and I see from previous reviews you can hire items i.e toaster/kettle but we didn't bother. It was so cheap to eat out all we used the kitchen for was to make cups of tea and our water cool in the fridge. We had aircon in the bedroom and living area and also a flat screen TV, there weren't many English channels but we only watched a bit of Sky News and put the music channel on in the evenings when we were getting ready to go out.

The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and this is not the sort of hotel where the cleaners are banging on the door first thing to get in! We did not hear anything from KISS nightclub across the road which had worried me when we'd first arrived. There is a small shop less than a minute's walk away and a supermarket a little further up the road. We never had any problem getting a sunbed by the pool at any time but I would say if you want a day at the pool then to get there early only because the pool area loses the sun about 6.00pm but you can move sunbeds on the grass area to get those last rays. Our balcony was shady but this was not a problem and we enjoyed being able to sit out and cool down after a long hot day at the beach. The water pressure was what I would expect when on holiday, not great but adequate and the temperature was fine. Our balcony window in the living area didn't have any safety stickers and we moved the coffee table in front of the window so we didn't accidentally walk into it. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Now a bit about the location...... a short walk up to the Strip where there are lots of restaurants and bars. I would also recommend getting the tourist train to the Old Town, it costs 4 Euro each for a day rider and runs every 20 minutes, we used this the whole time during our stay and didn't catch a cab once. The Old Town Restaurants are of a much higher standard and it's worth exploring past the Square and up the hill for some hidden gems. The beach here is much nicer as well compared to Praia da Oura which was not that clean and full of seaweed and cigarette ends.

I was surprised by the number of Stag and Hen dos on the Strip but they weren't any trouble. The age range seemed to be late 20s upwards and while some were a bit loud they were civilised and behaved themselves. There was a police presence whilst we were there but I'm not sure if this is usual or because of the start of the World Cup.

I would recommend The Cottage for breakfast which was very reasonable with good service and also the Chinese restaurant called The Golden Garden which is the first one you reach on walking up from the hotel, there is a Chinese PR outside who was always entertaining! We ate there twice as the food was so good. We did a day excursion and got out tickets from the Ticket Shop, if you don't mind leaving it until the last minute and book the evening before you want to go there are some deals to be had. All in all we had a wonderful holiday in a fabulous hotel.

My husband & I stayed here in April 2014 for 8 nights. We were very impressed with the standard of these apartments, very clean & modern. The kitchen area was quite large with open plan to the lounge area. The only gripe about kitchen equipment was that we had to hire a toaster from reception but it was a refundable deposit so cost nothing. We had a great view from the room, we were in on the 4th floor overlooking the pool with sea view. The balcony was a good size with nice furniture, it could easily accommodate 5/6 people. The pool area is very nice with decking. We had no problem at the time we visited in getting a sunbed but otherwise it is nice to spend some time on the beautiful beach which is just a few minutes walk down the road. Also from the beach walk it is only 20 minutes or so to Albufeira old town/beach. For nightlife and restaurants, the 'strip' is just five minutes walk up the road on the right. There are plenty of small supermarkets around but a larger INTERMARCHE can be found on Estrada de Santa Eulalia which is a little further along the top road & runs parallel to the strip

Room Tip: Pool view at front is nice but higher have better views
