Just spent a week at the Areias and overall it was a good experience.

The rooms are big enough for a family of 4, two single beds pushed together in the bedroom and a 2 piece sofabed in the lounge. The sofa was the most comfortable of the 4.

You got AC in both the lounge and bedrooms.

The Kitchen facilities are a bit limited, you get a 4 hob electric oven, enough plates and cutlery, but only 6 wine glasses, no tumblers. Also, there were only 3 pans, 1 saucepan, 1 frying pan and 1 kettle. There is also a frindge (with tiny freezer compartment) microwave, but no oven, nor was there a juicer like some other poster had.

We had a late flight home and the Hotel policy is to check out at 11:00am, this wasnt so bad as the Hotel has a room by reception where you can dump your bags while you enjoy your last day.

The only issue I had was that the noise from the other apartments can be very intrusive. I had requested a top floor room at the time of booking (Jan 2010), but they seemed unable or unwilling to accomodate this, so ended up with a first floor room and probably the worst first night sleep ever thanks to a loud family next door talking and arguing until 2am, then a young group of lads upstairs who arrived at 5am and proceeded to scrape chairs and make hell of a racket until 7am. Thankfully, it was both their last night at the place and the rest of the stay was relatively quiet. helped by me using earplugs at night.

The noise of furniture scraping does really travel in this place.

I had a pool facing view, which also faces the Kiss nightclub, but I did not notice any noise from the nightclub at all.

My partner and i very recently stayed at this hotel, and we had pretty much no complaints, the staff very friendly and polite, the rooms were nice and clean, and comfortable. One thing was that instead of a double bed there were two single bed's pushed together which was a bit disappointing!

The location is very good. Ignore previous reviews complaining about the noise, there was a kiss nightclub just across the road, but it was open maybe twice in the whole 7 days we were there and the noise wasn't too bad. The strip is worth a look, lots of nice places to eat, and little shops to visit, altho it is rather touristy, which is fine unless you were looking for something more traditional.

We also found taking a taxi into old town was an enjoyable experience and only cost around 4 euros. There is also a beach which is about ten minutes walk away from the hotel, its called Praia Da Oura, and is at the bottom of a steep hill but well worth the walk.

So overall the hotel was nice and clean, the rooms were comfortable, and we had everything we needed, fresh towels every two - three days. The hotel restaurant was not too bad either, and relaxing by the pool provided a days worth of entertainment. The rooms were air conditioned which was very useful, and made sleeping very easy .

I would recommend this hotel to other people. Was all in all a fantastic holiday . :)

This hotel lives up to all we had read on previous tripadvisor reviews. The location of the hotel is far enough way from the Albufeira strip that you are not bothered by it but close enough that you can walk to all the shops/bars/restaurants in around 5mins. The room was clean, airy and a nice size with a nice spacious balcony. The pool area was well maintained and there was always enough sunbeds. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the biggest supermarket is a 10-15 min walk away, but there is a small shop just across the road for all the essentials.

Beautiful aparthotel in a great setting. What was supposed to be a nice family holiday was ruined by a terrible group of rude lads on a stag do. The staff have no hotel security to do anything about it. We were kept awake 3 nights out of the week due to having groups next door, opposite and above us. Shame as it is a great place but no good if you have young children in the situation we were in. Also the nightclub opposite you can hear lots of noise from too.

This is a great reasonably priced hotel and the rooms are some of the best you will stay in for the money. The hotel is comtemporary and fresh throughout. I have read the recent reviews and I don't understand them. Yes there is a nightclub, but this is at least two or three hundred yards from the hotel. Yes the strip is tacky but this is even further away and If you go to Albufeira then this could be one of the draws. We stayed at the hotel for a golf tour and everyone was impressed. Yes we had stag and hen parties at the weekend but I imagine this is the same for thousands of hotels in Portugal and Spain. The hotel is extremely clean and on the whole very quiet. Highly recommended
