“Relaxing holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Our second stay was as good as we remembered it. Spotlessly clean with excellent housekeeping. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Lovely poolside lunches at reasonable prices. Bed was a bit hard. Within easy reach of old Town shops and restaurants

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view

we stayed at the brisa sol last week for 9nights, we enjoyed it very much, at first i was dissapointed we were overlooking the side street (06) but it was quiet and just off the reception it was huge the biggest apartment we have stayed in and very clean and because we where on the end we only had people one side of us. we loved the pool area and pool bar, the inside bar lacked atmoshere we didnt use it much. an easy 10 min walk down to the old town and the little train back made the holiday for us. we will come again. ps you must try the cake shop next door brilliant!!

Just returned from a 10-night stay and I really wish we'd booked a fortnight as I didn't want to leave. We didn't have much dealings with the Reception staff other than checking in and out but we found them to be pleasant and efficient. Our apartment was spacious and comfortable with all the equipment we would need and, having done a bit of research prior to our holiday, I was a bit concerned with other reviewer's comments about the hardness of the beds. However they turned out to be quite comfortable and we slept really well. Our apartment was on the ground floor with the balcony facing the car park and the side of the shopping mall next door - hardly picturesque - but this didn't bother us as we were out all day and only really used the balcony to enjoy a nightcap when it was dark anyway.

We booked on a bed and breakfast basis and breakfast was served on a buffet basis with a wide range of items to choose from - including cereals, fruit, breads, rolls and croissants and the usual English breakfast. I will particularly miss the fruit bread with the glazed nut topping. We also ate dinner in the restaurant one evening which was tasty and good value. I was especially impressed with my monkfish kebab which I had expected to arrive on a plate but was instead served hanging from a stand en flambe. We also enjoyed an unexpected breakfast entertainment of the sight of towel-wielding fellow guests queuing and then stampeding to the sunbeds when the doors opened at 9.00 am, despite the fact that there were plenty of sunbeds available. We never had a problem finding sunbeds when we moseyed down to the pool around 10.30 am.

Whilst I would agree with other reviewers that the Brisa Sol is in need of a bit of a spruce up, this doesn't detract from it being a very good hotel which is in a brilliant location. There is a shopping mall next door with a large supermarket which has just about everything you need and there are restaurants on either side and across the road. An added bonus was that it's only a 10-minute walk to the Old Town.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay at the Brisa Sol and I would definitely recommend it. We will certainly be back.

Room Tip: If you are the type of person who likes a nice view from the balcony, it's probably best to pay...

Hotel very clean, great location, we had a pool/sea view, the rooms were a nice size & well equipped for people going self catering, the bed was really comfy & we were not disturbed by any of the other guests at night, my only complaint would be that groups of either young male/ female groups staying at the hotel did not go well with the young families that were staying there, drinking from early morning they tended to get louder & the language stronger as the day went on, but that was the only downside. Next door there is a huge supermarket, we went half board, & found a good selection & variety on offer, Old town only 10mins walk away, buzzing 24/7, would deffo return.

Room Tip: We asked for a pool/sea view, which were equipped with table & chairs as well as sun loungers...

After recently returning from the brisa sol, I wouldn't say this hotel is anywhere near a 4 star standard, 2 star at max. The 2 good things of this hotel were the location and the staff. After that, room was very dated, beds uncomfortable, baby's cot felt like it had a blank of wood running through the middle of it, bed sheets not changed on a regular basis and had to ask to have the babies sheets changed (which they did). The outdoor pool was somewhat 'fresh' at 20.5c!! We stayed as B&B board and the breakfast became very dull, boring and tasteless after a few days. We stayed in a studio room with a baby and felt cramped in there, not big enough. Expected more for what we paid, definitely wouldn't return or recommend this hotel.

My wife and I just returned from Brisa Sol in Albuferia last week, after a week at the resort.
After an eventful trip from the airport to the hotel ( we waited at the airport for 90 minutes trying to find one of our suitcases, and when it was found, the bus supplied by Thomson had left without us and another 10 passengers !!! ) when we arrived at the airport, the staff on duty at the hotel were in such a rush to get rid of us, they grabbed our passports and gave us the card key to our room and pointed at the lift. The room we had was a studio for 2 persons, we were facing the local shopping complex, which was not a problem, we could actually see the sea, if you leaned over our balcony which was approx. 50 foot from the ground (not recommended), The hotel is billed as a 4 star, maybe it was 20 years ago, as the rooms are very dated, I would say it is probably scraping a 3 star in its present state, the cleaners clean your room every day, they have no set time for attending, sometimes 09.30 in the morning or sometimes 15.30 in the afternoon,( you cant relax in your room as you have no idea when they will turn up) and when they do attend,they wipe a wet mop over the floor and leave some loo roll, even after being cleaned every day, the room still did not feel very clean. My wife and I have been to Albuferia before, but this time, the resort felt quite unsafe, it now seems to attract stag and hen parties, and for some unknown reason, the waiting staff at the local cafes and restaurants were quite rude and not very polite, we usually go to Tossa De Mar in Spain for our holidays, where the Spanish people are always very friendly and the resort is fantastic if you are looking for a relaxing week away, the total opposite of Albuferia. In general the Brisa Sol is okay if you can get a good deal on the internet, but if you think you are getting 4 star luxury, then you will very disappointed.
