“50th Birthday celebration - weekend”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Travelled to Brisa Sol for a girlie birthday weekend. We had a variety of accommodation studios and apartments, I don't think one person was disappointed with their accommodation, plenty of space. I was slightly worried by some reviews, and also looking at some of the pictures. Well no need to worry! I had recommended the hotel and I am so glad that I did. Make sure you ask for pool/sea view. Pool area very clean, it actually all looked like it had recently been refurbished. Fresh towels each day. Staff very accommodating, nothing too much trouble and always very pleasant. Some of us did have breakfast in hotel, which they said was very good, but some of us went to a place across the road, which was lovely too. Definitely would stay here again, sometimes I wonder what people expect for the price you pay. We only made a coffee/tea in the room, but there were electric rings, microwave, electric kettle and a toaster. If people want a fully equipped kitchen when on holiday, then I would say better to stay in a holiday apartment!

Room Tip: As I mentioned pool/sea view, or you could ask for a ground floor room which would be ideal with chi...

First thing is my warning to you all about shuttles in the Algarve it was my mistake i wasnt aware how it worked .i thought they collected you at the airport and shuttled you to the hotel. Its not the case they wait till they fill a coach from various flight s and then stop everywhere .its a nightmare such a big waste of the day .
We loved brisasol though its big , clean and very friendly staff.
They have a great pool area with a lovely sea view .
Tennis courts which is a bonus for us we both play. They had squash courts too .
The old part of the city suited us best the Strip was too rowdy.
Old city has shops and fab eating houses.
Favourites being ricardos italian and tasco viegas portuguese..
We did a historical tour to the mountains and a lovely town called lagos.
We prefered not to go home on the shuttle coach as we would of been first collection .
We managed to get a private transfer service with the yellowfishtransfers people. Airport trip was 30 minutes.Highly recommended.
Brisasol is great we hope to return.
Note.. breakfast was fab!

Positives
1. Great location - 10m to old town or strip
2. Lovely outdoor pool and indoor heated pool
3. Studio's well equipment with kitchen utensils
4. Staff - very friendly and helpful
5. Fantastic supermarket next door which is very cheap
6. Fantastic patisserie at hotel - you must try!

Negatives
1. Decor - rooms are in desperate need of reburishment
2. You need to pay for use of sauna/steamroom. Have no idea why!
3. No pool towels provided

We had a fantastic stay at this hotel. The positives definitely outway the negatives but that is mainly due to the hotels location. Its rated a 4 star hotel but is more a 3 star. Our room decor was very shabby, however, it was well equiped and we had a ground floor studio overlooking the pool which was a great sun trap.

We booked through alpha rooms and got a fantastic deal. £134 for 5 nights SC in a studio apartment. Would I recommend this hotel or stay here again? Yes but only if the price was right.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a pool view room otherwise you will overlook the car park and main road

Stayed at the Brisa Sol for a one week stay over the Easter holiday. The hotel has a great location and staff were very friendly. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was very spacious and had all the equipment required for a self catering holiday ie. microwave, pots & pans etc.

The only downside to our stay at the Brisa Sol was the room we stayed in. Room 001 is on -1 level and is located near the games room. We could hear the people playing air hockey and were woken up countless times by people leaving the games room. This room is adjacent to the door leading to other rooms and we could hear it slam.

Other than that I would recommend staying at this hotel as it is only a 15 minute walk to Praia dos Pescadores and the strip. It is conveniently located next to the supermarket which is great for those who are on a self catering holiday.

Room Tip: If you are unlucky enough to get room 001 ask to be moved to another room if you would like a restfu...

Bad points: Dated rooms, rock hard beds, dirty walls, dirty floor, hit and miss housekeeping, musty smell in room.

Good points: Clean bathroom, nice balcony, glassware, plates and utensils spotless, reception staff excellent, bar staff very friendly, nice hotel bar, excellent amenities, located behind a fantastic cake shop and shopping centre.

If ever a place needed a lick of paint this is it. An average three star hotel. Not the best and not the worst. Bit of advice - AVOID Besttransfers4u at Faro airport. Rip off. Takes ages to get to hotel and when we rang the day before going home to be collected they gave us a crazy pick up time of 3.50am in morning. Our flight was at 8am and the airport is less that 45 minutes away. Got a taxi that morning instead for €10 more - think the name was algarserra taxis and was at the airport in 35 minutes

Room Tip: Choose pool view room as these are the only ones with sea view

Cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in, the location is perfect and the service is pretty good too.
Rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels.
The view from the rooms is also great.
Enjoyed my stay and would stay again..
