“what a glorious hotel”
Reviewed 11 March 2011

what a glorious hotel.. not too large and very proffessionaly run.

Its in a strange location in the middle of a local cul de sac at the side of the resort. This is not detromental just a little unusual , if you go you will understand just what i mean.
It is quite new and very clean has a lovely bar and pool area also an indoor pool which is rather nice.
We are older and like to use the gym in the mornings but don't like to be intimidated by the body builder types. Was perfect for us.With a lovely sauna and steam bath.

We could walk in about 15 minutes to the heart of the old or new town. Where there was abundant restaurants and some very quaint bars.

We travelled with Thomas cook we don't like to go all alone at our age its nice to have the back up of the tour operator in case anything goes pear shaped. But we don't use their transfer facility definatly not they take far too long stopping here and there , it takes longer than the flight sometimes.. No we used a company called yellowfishtransfers ;com my niece had already used them so we knew they were good . The young man was very sweet he met us and took the trolley off us straight away and walked nice and slowly to the car with us .He gave us a little gift . He was called Ricardo we gave him a small tip when he left us at the hotel. He was on the dot when he collected us too..

We rented a studio apartment from holidaylettings.I had corresponded with the owner via email and phone and was told we could have the apartment form 10am as we had a very early flight. When we arrived we were told that the apartment would not be available until 2pm. We had a bit of a hassle just trying to get into the complex as they dont let you into the pool area without a pass. After a while we managed to get it sorted and sat around the pool with our cases until the apartment was ready.
When we got the keys we went to the apartment which was not a bad size for a studio, sofa bed, small kitchenette and bathroom. We were told that the apartment had a washing machine but there wasnt one so the advert for the apartment is a bit misleading. There was also a small balcony but it had a horrible view looking over the road that runs along the back of the complex.
The apartment was fairly clean and linen and towels were provided but the apartment didnt get cleaned or towels changed for the whole week we were there.
The pool area around the complex was nice and clean and very well kept. There were plenty of sunloungers available and although it was the height of the season we always managed to get one even though we didnt get to the pool til 11am some mornings.
The holidaymakers at the Belavista are all mostly Portuguese. We were the only British people staying there but we didnt mind this too much as it meant the pool area was lovely and quiet and the pool empty from 1pm til 4pm while they enjoyed a siesta.
There is also a nice pool bar that was very reasonable.
The location of the Belavista apartments is very good, just a 10 minute walk to the beautiful Fishermans Beach and the old town which is were we ate most nights in some lovely restaurants. The strip which is very lively is about a 20 minute walk away and if you like lots of noisy bars and nightlife then you should go. We had a couple of fun nights there.
If you are thinking of coming to Albufiera then these apartments may be ok but try and get one that overlooks the pool and has the facilities in it that it advertises.

Over all not a bad place, the rooms had no air con which we were expecting. The apartments were very clean nice accomodation maids in daily. The balcony looked over the bar & pool area which looked nice but obviously rather noisy later at night untill the early hours which wasnt so good when you have hot young children. Reception were very helpful and there was a free bus down the town and seefront if you could work out the timetable! I had been lead into believeing we were very close to the sea front but this was not the case. Overall very nice apart from the one or two little problems
