“lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

our 2nd visit to Alisios our 1st was 2 years ago and we worried it would not be as good as remembered but it had not changed. We took our son age 20 this time he was in a single room but other than him not having a balcony the room was of the same standard as ours. The hotel is perfect for a quiet relaxing holiday the staff are very friendly and extremely courteous nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast is continental with loads of choice the food in restaurant is very good if a bit pricey compared to the restaurants in the Old Town. This is a gem of a hotel and we had a lovely holiday and look forward to going back.

Great hotel on the beach. Moved here after staying up the road in a very uncomfortable hotel. Staff were very friendly, lovely sunbathing terrace. Only thing missing was an outdoor pool.

Room Tip: Sea view room worth the extra euros

What a fantastic time we had in the Alisios Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous, they could not do enough for you. The bedrooms were first class as was the food and restaurant. A top class hotel by any standards. We spent just a week and wished now that we had booked longer.

It has been our first visit to Portugal and we were very happy with our stay and will definitely be back.
The Hotel Alisios is in a great location , equally suitable whether you want to visit the beach,old town or tha strip and new town.
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the hotel we were made to feel very welcome and special from every single member of staff.
I shall not run on about where to eat or drink as there are so many reviews doing that all ready, however I would like to say believe all the good reviews.
There is no evening entertainment at the hotel but we went out as did most other guests to my knowledge.
Show your support to the local bars and restaurants, they are a very important part of this lovely resort and we do well to avoid the all inclusive trend that is taking business from them.

The hotel is located on a small hill, the rock. Of course (not Turkey) area of ​​the hotel is not big, or rather it is practically not. The hotel has a pool, it is closed, never saw anyone there. Also, the hotel has a bar on the terrace in the evenings when the wind and cool, there stretched polyethylene "protection" and everything is warm and comfortable. The hotel building also has a kind of restaurant, but most tourists prefer to eat outdoors overlooking the ocean. For ten days, were not just speeches and live music (but I spent the evening in the city). The rooms are spacious, exactly the same as in the picture. Cleaned daily, towels are changed as soon as they leave the floor. Plumbing new, I think, recently redecorated. In the room there is tablets that were not cleaned or vice versa. Lease (bail) safe 10 euros - a week. Pass the items to the dry cleaners in the hotel it is possible (24 hours - this is urgent, 48 - standard), but expensive. It is best to do this in a city mall.

In the food I had only included breakfast. Breakfast was standard. I do not know in Europe they are the same everywhere. Rolls to choose from, butter, cheese, several kinds, ham, sausage, yogurt, fruit (mainly canned peaches, pineapple, fresh - apples, watermelon, cantaloupe), tea, coffee, cereal, juice, scrambled eggs. The hotel is very conveniently located with respect to access to the ocean. On the open terrace - restaurant, there are sun beds and umbrellas (you can soak up the sun in the distance from the sand, drink something refreshing), the stairs going to the beach. Just want to make a reservation, all the beaches in Portugal municipalities, so do not count on free sunbeds and the hotel grounds. Rent sun beds and umbrellas on the beach is from 10 to 20 euros / day. Simply buy an umbrella in the city for 5-9 euros, towels give the hotel (10 euro deposit on a vacation.). The beach is clean, there are ashtrays. In a 5-minute bar. Beautiful beach, cliffs, ocean ... beautiful!!

Just a little less, my room was on the second floor, after going to the supermarket and buy pechenushek, ran ant)))) And the same evening, "ran away"! He had only to tell the administrator about the problem, as in 2 minutes is really the damage.

The hotel has its own packing, free of charge (they took the car to the rental, and quietly left the hotel).

In my opinion, the hotel Alisios one of the most successful. It should be right on the ocean, within walking distance of the "old" and "new" town (15-25 min.), Very nice and pleasant. You can eat at almost any time (the night before 1-00). The food is very tasty and relatively expensive. So I advise everyone, unless of course does not scare the absence of the outdoor pool.

I travelled solo late in the season at the end of October and stayed for one week. The weather was great, sunny with clear skies. The hotel has a magnificent location right on the beach and within a walking distance from the old town. The beach is great, and the hotel also has a good sea-water pool downstairs, where I enjoyed a good swim every evening. The whole staff was most friendly and willing to give assistance even in the slightest matters. I've never had such a wonderful breakfast before: one morning there was even a real show of mastery as a member of the kitchen staff prepared me a special treat of scrambled eggs. The comfortable room was a double room with an open view to the town, much better than what I had experienced ever before, travelling single. I can truly recommend this hotel, even for solo travellers!

Room Tip: Rooms with a sea view are quieter and sunnier.

We went with Thomson Holidays who offered the Alisios hotel in Albufeira - it was was right on the beach so no need to go elsewhere for a swim in the warm waters of the Atlantic here at Albufeira. (7 days of warm sunshine and clear blue skies at the end of September.)They also have a heated indoor pool for those days when the sea is a bit rough. There is an expansive elevated terrace with loungers if you don't want to lie on the beach below. The staff were exceedingly friendly and helpful - couldn't have asked for better! We had B&B package and the variety and quality of the breakfast food was fantastic. Good English spoken by all staff in the hotel and indeed most local people we encountered, shopkeepers, restauranteers and taxi drivers. The Hotel was beautifully furnished in modern style, but with traditional touches in the furniture placed on the landings and alcoves, and very clean. Used the bedroom air conditioning sometimes at night, but opening the balcony gave adequate cooling during the day. Many German clients, so the Brits were in a minority, but everyone very pleasant. Mostly couples or groups of adult friends. No young families here.
Out and About:
In the evenings we mostly went into Albufeira old town (10 minutes walk) to eat and enjoy the live entertainment in many of the bars. Once we stayed for the hotel for their Saturday night barbeque with live music and once we went up to the New Town to sample the night life and eat on "The Strip".
Both old and new town areas are very clean and full of places to eat and drink - the choice is overwhelming. We can recommend Cabana Fresca on the sea front and Ricardo's Italian Ristorante close by. Both buzzing at night. Slightly at the back of the Old Town is a quality restaurant "Grandmother's House". In the New Town, on the Strip we dined well at Restaurant/Pizzaria Ramos.
Transport:
The little Tourist Train runs between the Old And New Towns - a round trip is 2.50 Euro or you can hop on/hop off for 4.00. However a taxi between the two towns is only 3.90 so we settled for taxis home most of the time.
Sightseeing:
We did one excursion with friends who had a car to Cape St. Vincent, the most westerly point in mainland Europe and the nearby enormous coastal Fort at Sagres - spectacular.
Overall: This was a great holiday and Thomson looked after us royally. Recommended !

Room Tip: You may have to ask for a sea view.....our room faced the other way on to the main road and the balc...
