“Cheap and ideal location”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 via mobile

Myself and a friend stayed in this hotel at the start of July this year. The hotel was basic but clean and all that we needed for this type of trip. We booked very last minute and stayed bed and breakfast for 4 nights. The pool was nice and there were plenty I sun loungers. It seemed to get cleaned every evening, which was good. The rooms were basic but clean. From the outside the hotel looks slightly run down but is in the process f getting its balconies replaced so once that's done and hopefully painted it will look a lot better. The breakfast was not a huge choice but was enough to fill you up until lunch. The hotel is basically on the strip and we had a street facing room, which is really noisy until about 5/6am but great for people watching. Hotel is very close to everything and great for a short, cheap and cheerful stay when you want to be close to everything going on.

poolside room is the only room to have.Unless you like very, very loud music until 4 in the morning!
Food very basic. Eat it or eat out. Eating out is by far the better option,
I first visited this Hotel some 30 years ago because then television in room seemed appealing. 30 years later...same televisions. Sattelite television? Sky news or portugese programmes.
Pool. Surrounded by sorry sun beds also very odd tiled concrete blocks as tables. most of these blocks have chipped tiles on the corners, very dangerous for children.
Arrived 8 in the evening to very unwelcoming reception staff. "Welcome to the Hotel Aldeia"
would hve been nice. This Hotel is overated at 3 stars.

Room Tip: Find another hotel!

I came with 2 friends, we are all 22 so up for the lively night life. We had a strip view room which was loud but not a problem for us. When we initially arrived the room was not cleaned well. There were cigarette ends on the balcony, dirt on the bathroom floor etc. The plug in the sink was stuck so the water took a long time to drain. But the major problem was that there were only 2 beds. We booked a double/twin room for 3 people so expected either 2 single beds and a camp bed or a double bed and a camp bed. We went to the reception and they said they would sort this problem while we were out. We arrived back at the hotel 2 hours later around 11pm and nothing had been done. We agreed that we would make do for tonight but tomorrow it needed sorting. In the morning we went to the reception. The receptionist was not understanding when we explained that there would be no room in that room for another bed as it would block the balcony door and we would not be able to have a bed side cabinate fit either. I had to go back twice as the receptionist was quite dismissive explaining that it was not her fault it was the travel agents and that there were no rooms free. This was very frustrating bit after persistence we got moved to a larger room with 3 beds. The room was tidied daily but the towels were not changed regularly when they were dirty (even if they were left in the bath) Breakfast was basic and perfectly fine but was the same 6/7 days that we were there. Outside or balcony was a meter high pile of rubble which wasn't great to look at. There were plenty of sunbeds by the pool which was great, the poolside surface was old, slabs were cracked and it wasn't the safest and on our first day we couldn't use the pool until after 11 as it was being cleaned. I wouldn't go back to this hotel or recommend it purely because of the room issue but it didn't ruin our holiday.

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel and if you want a hotel in the middle of the nightlife this is it.
The hotel is clean and check in was fine with someone showing us to our room (if you want a tip make sure you book a pool view room if you want sleep at night) pool area great very spacious and has a pool bar ,breakfast is not great but it is a edible,what sells this hotel is its location as its situated right in the middle of the strip so you don't have far to stagger home.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room if you want any sleep

I read all the reviews after I booked a stay here with 4 of my friends for a first girls holiday. However we still went through with it and I was left pleasantly surprised. It was nothing like what we had read on Trip Advisor! It was clean, maids were cleaning our rooms once a day, the swimming pools were clean! The food was scheduled, and came in varieties! It is on the strip and as a group of 5 girls in their early twenties it was the perfect location! The staff were friendly ESPECIALLY JOAO PEDRO FERREIRA & EMMANUEL (receptionists). Safe area. Police officers are very alert. (Halal) takeaways a stone throw away (we went half board). Wifi was a bit stupid because it could only be used in the lounge area, however there's wifi connection EVERY WHERE, CLUBS SHOPS TAKEAWAYS ETC. I am most definitely coming back to this exact location!

Whoevers reading the reviews and thinking twice, please don't be put off, you get what you pay for so I don't know why everyone on here is complaining as if they paid for a stay at the hilton! Tbh I believe it gave me more than what I paid for, absolutely LOVED it. Most definitely coming back! ENJOY!

I was a bit apprehensive about this hotel when i read the reviews on here. i booked this last minute and didn't look here first, our first room, which was a street view :( was clean and tidy,i went out on the balcony and thought it's nice here, i like people watching so it was ideal. had to go to bed early as we had had an early start. i had earplugs so never really heard anything but the noise was horrendous, my hubby went down in the middle of the night to complain and was told the music didn't finish till four in the morning. managed to get two hours sleep then the rubbish wagons were round about 7am that went on for an hour. we asked to be moved the next day, the woman on reception was a bit shirty at first but was ok when we offered to pay the 25 euros to move to a poolside room which was nice, bathroom was clean and tidy but shower was a bit tempremental best 25 euros we spent, could hardly hear any noise at all. the food was ok. as long as you aren't fussy although they could do with heating it better. we had no ill effects from it. the staff were helpful and polite. the pool was nice and clean. we had a good time here.

Room Tip: ask for a poolside room
