I had the opportunity to stay at The Brisa Sol on my recent Christmas golf break, which i booked with golfbreaks.com. I have long admired this place but never stayed there so was really looking forward to it. The price i paid was exceptionally good. So i knew and was prepared to upgrade on arrival which i did for 7euro per night to a pool view, which was deffinatley worth the little bit extra. The apartments are very nice, but very limited on cooking utilities so we booked breakfast every day and ate out every evening. The location is very good, so even at Christmas we did not struggle to find a good place to eat each night. The golf was the higflight of this break though. Even tough i did enjoy the small indoor pool.
Now, i would not choose this time of year to go again. The main town of Albufeira was like a ghost town, i mean like being on the moon at times. No Christmas trees, lights or any of that its a very low key affair. This may have an upside because the few places that were open everything from drinks to meals even in top restaurants was really good value.
The down side to all this was, the breakfast in the hotel although it looked very good, was always stone cold, so we wish we hadn't done that. But the thing that put me off the place for life was just one man. The misserable bloke who runs the bar. The first few days we started our evenings and finished in the hotel bar, but after 4 days i had, had enough of this chap and stopped going in. Obviously he's in the wrong job and he hates people, but i think he hates customers more. I tried to be nice and make friends and even gave generous tips but to no avail, i think he is the worst, ruddest person i have met on being a regular visitor to the Algarve for over 20 years.
To sum up if you don't have breakfast and you dont use the bar its really quite nice.
