My husband and I and another couple have just arrived home from our holiday in Albufeira and I am compelled to write this review. This hotel is in an appalling state of disrepair and neglect. Once you leave the very tasteful foyer it's all downhill. The rooms are shabby and extremely dated. The beds were like mortuary slabs with pillows half the size of a normal pillow. The door frame was falling apart and the tap in the bathroom wouldn't turn off. The remote control for the TV didn't work the list is endless. We had requested a pool view, which they didn't have or at least they wanted €7.50 a night extra yet, our friends did get the room requested, this meant that we were facing the street and had to endure the noise until 5:00am every morning. Outside there were only 10 umbrellas to about 30 beds, paving around the pool was cracked and broken and a definite hazard, there were square tiled tables which all had cracked and broken tiles again not very safe. The steps into the pool were very shaky and felt like they would come away at any time. We did have breakfast one morning which was dreadful and it was far more preferable to eat out. The thing which made me most angry about this terrible hotel is the lack of any type of service, asking for a tea or coffee tended to incite the reply 'no tea' or 'no cream for coffee' there was a general apathy about the staff (there were not enough staff which I think attributed to this). There was a lovely bar but it didn't open till late in the evening. To my mind a hotel should have a working bar at all times where you can chill out with a beer or a coffee whenever you feel like it (apart from pool bar). At €100 per night I would have expected a lot more from any hotel. Of course the location is great and when the bar was open the barman was very nice but that in no way compensates for the poor service and sorry state of Hotel Aldeia.
