I booked this place last minute for myself and two friends (the three of us being students), as it was cheap compared to most other accommodation in Albufeira itself. Ideally, I was looking for a place in between the Old Town and the New Town, so we could take advantage of both areas, depending on what kind of evening we were up for. For this, the Alta Oura was great, as it was a 5 minute walk to the New Town and a 15-20 minute walk to the Old Town.

You must check-in to these apartments at the Choromar, located approx. 2km from the Alta Oura. We caught a taxi from the Choromar, but found that he had dropped us off about a 10 min walk away from the Alta Oura, so do ensure that you take the full address of the apartments with you. We arrived after dark, and there is very little light outside the apartments, so without a reception I can see it being a struggle for some to find their apartment. Luckily, ours was the first apartment that you come across when entering.

Generally a basic apartment, but the largest I have stayed at. There was a bedroom with twin beds, and a large living area with two single sofa beds, as well as a dining table and well equipped kitchen, and a bathroom with shower over bath. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Our terrace looked out on the pool, which was convenient if we wanted a swim or to sunbathe. It was mostly quiet around the pool with usually enough sun beds for everyone, although a lot of the sun beds seemed to have cracked or broken. The pool wasn't the cleanest I've seen, with some sand and fallen leaves, but it didn't stop us using it daily.

Cleaners came in every other day to do some basic cleaning such as empty the rubbish bins and sweep the floors, nothing much more than that, and we were given fresh towels half way through the week.

The Alta Oura does need a lick of paint and some work on the outside and inside, but for the price, it was ideal.

Albufeira and the Algarve is a great area to go for a break, with plenty of lovely restaurants as well as lively bars in the Old Town (do try Bank for their wonderful fillet steaks), and a very busy strip with decent nightlife in the New Town.

We had such a great holiday the apartments were really spacious. Service ok, but sometimes it was hard to get in contact with someone. The biggest problem was we were on the first floor and someone broke into our apartment and stole some belongings....so be careful and lock the patio doors, you'll just have to sweat as there is no air conditioning

My 1st and abiding memory of Portugal and Albufiera! We went as a family of 4 in October 2001 and found the apartment to be spacious, extremely clean and accommodating. Very central for our boys who loved The Strip and also for us "olds" who favoured the Old Town (though the boys also fell in love with its charm, having numerous fabulous eating places and wonderful live performers in the square which abounds with the sounds of sparrow song, especially in the evening) A magical place to spend a holiday!
When we visit again, and we definately will, Alta Oura will be our preference. Cherished memories - I only hope we can re-visit soon.

September 2004. Just got back from the Alta Ouro hotel and thought i would say what a fantastic time we have had. Had a one bed room which was huge! Was quiet when we went which made it a lovely relaxing holiday. the hotel is in walking distance from the beach, the strip and the old town. not to short a walk but nice if you dont mind a fifteen min stroll. My 5yr old could manage it easily. My favourite place was the old town, crammed with lots of shops bars and restaurants. Try Liza' pizza an pasta place right near the square, the food and service was brilliant. The night life is pretty good to! Would definatly go again to Albuferia and to this hotel.

My family stayed in a one-bedroomed apartment at the Alta Oura in August 2004. Spacious and spotlessly clean, if fittings showing slight signs of age. Ideal location. Thoroughly recommended.
