My friend and I have just spent 2 weeks at this hotel 3/11 to17/11/13 and we found all the staff very friendly indeed in every department. We had 2 rooms in D block 321 & 322 with balconies over looking the beach, we had no complaints about the rooms the beds were comfortable, cleaned and towels changed every day and bedding changed every third day or more often if needed. We had a fridge , a kettle, and my friend also had a microwave in her room, not that we needed it but it was nice to be able to make tea in the morning, and have cold bottled drinking water in the fridge.If you take your tea bags you can buy bottled water in the hotel shop or less than half price at the local shops. The indoor pool was like getting into a sauna it was lovely not very big but just fine, the outdoor pool was very cold but that was to be expected at this time of the year, There is one thing we would like to change if it was possible and that is the food in the pool restaurant needs to be covered more as there are flies around and this is causing problems with sickness with the guests. I myself had a bad bout of it for 24hrs. I must admit the staff are very concerned if told and they ring the room to enquire and sent up a tray of chicken soup and 2 bananas and camomile tea which helped. We were all inclusive which I don't think we would again we would just have 1/2 board as the food in the mornings were good and plenty of choice and the evening meal was fine considering they have to cater for different nationalities.
We loved the area a few minutes walk to the strip and a lovely walk along the sandy beach to Albufeira old town taking about 20 mins. There is also a free bus twice a day from the hotel to the town and return later. I would stress that if you are disabled or have trouble with your legs there are lots of steps and I mean lots and quite a hard walk down to the beach which also included many steps so this hotel isn't really suitable, we were never told about the steps and there was nothing in the brochure about them. Overall we enjoyed our holiday and would go back again especially to that area of Portugal
