If you are looking for a smaller hotel, in a peaceful location, and with stunning hillside views over the old town, beach and sea - the the Mar a Vista is the place to go. We had a top floor room (5th floor) with spacious balcony drenched in sun from daybreak to dusk, with views to die for. The rooms each have a fridge, which is handy for storing beer, wine, snack foods, chocolate.
Breakfast was simple but adequate (cereals, fresh rolls, ham, cheese, marmalade and jams, tea, coffee) but you could supplement this with your own fresh fruit, tomoatoes,yoghurt etc.
The hotel staff could not be more friendly and helpful - personal service is at the heart of this hotel.
Although the hotel might feel a bit 'out of the way' on arrival, it is just a 10 minute walk down to the beach and a taxi back up the hill is less than 5 euros if you are not keen on the climb.
At night, you are guaranteed a good sleep - no night clubs or noisy bars, just the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach. Delightful. A real gem of a find in Albufeira.
