Do not stay here -poor quality hotel that does not deserve it's 4 star rating. The staff here are rude and very unwelcoming to their guests. There was constant fighting between the staff that could be overheard by the guests. On multiple occasions they tried to give us the wrong change claiming they'd forgot what we paid. The rooms are small with a tiny balcony, very dated interior and in long need of a decent clean. The cleaners visited the room everyday but barely made the bed by tossing the sheets about and didn't change the towels or wash the floors once in the week.
We had breakfast included which included 'orange juice' made from orange cordial and croissants that came from a cheap packet, this was served on dirty table cloths which were not changed from day to day just the crumb wiped down from them but yet covered in stains. You will not be feeling anyway full after this breakfast!
The pool was dirty with cigarette butts left at the side and not cleared from day to day. There was also a lack of sunbeds and umbrellas by the poolside. Although the pool bar did not sell crisps, or did any other parts of the hotel they tried to stop people from eating them while sunbathing by the pool.
The hotel is situated up a large hill which is only a 10 minute walk to the old town which is beautiful, however there are steps down from the hotel which help shorten the hill but these close at 9pm meaning at night you have to walk back up a steep hill which is about a 20 minute walk.
We will definitely return to Albufeira again however I would strongly recommend anyone not to stay here, it is over priced and over rated with 4 stars,
