For the price we paid the hotel was excellent. Good facilities, great location, lovely staff. 2 minutes to the strip, 5 minutes from the beach, 15 minutes to the old town. Very clean and good sized rooms, very nice bathroom with great shower. We were a bit stupid and didn't realise that the room we booked was room only so no kettle/cooking facilities. All we needed to do to get that much needed morning cuppa was ask for a kettle at reception and they bought one up to use with cups, saucers and spoons within 5 minutes with a smile. Staff willing to help in any way throughout our 8 day stay. Only negative was that the pool bar closed at 7pm and balcony was small and wet due to leaking air con. Just to clarify that the hotel is situated opposite a night club, however we had our doors shut and the air con on and did not hear a peep!! Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Hotel itself was very nice and the staff lovely but it is has no atmosphere , the rooms are spotless and very spacious. Breakfast at the sister hotel is awful, some mornings we went and there was hardly any food left even though the resteraunt was never busy...when i asked for some bacon they brought out 3 slices for me and my husband to share.... avoid it if you can.
The supermarket across the road was pathetic, hardly any stock and very expensive.
Avoid room 314 as this is directly facing the Kiss nightclub , we were told by one of the receptionists that it was only open at the weekend, it was open every night.
Although this review sounds very negitive the hotel has a lot of good points, although i would not recommend b&b.

Room Tip: Avoid room 314 at all cost as it is directly facing Kiss nightclub and very very noisey, opens at 2...

Stayed on a B & B basis. Room was nice free Air Cond, beds to singles pushed together didnt bother us.
Only thing not right was the cleaners came to clean your rooms at very odd times 6.00pm.
KISS Club across the road, didnt hear a thing from them.
5 min walk from Strip, beach a 5-10 min walk, old town 20min or €3.90 taxi ride away.

The bad news,
Just back from 1 week staying in the Topazio. Had an awful 1st night- our fault! could not find a switch to turn on the air conditioning so left balcony doors open. Night club across the road opened at 2am and finished at 7am. Really noisey, young people shouting at the top of their voices all night. needless to say, very little sleep! Then John's burger bar opened at around 5am and this encouraged the night clubbers to congregate longer. Next morning we found the remote control for the air conditioning,were able to close balcony doors and sleep at night! When we got up in the mornings the revellers were on their way home and from our room we saw people urinate in the street- Both male and female!!!
Breakfast in the sister hotel next door was not great. Food tasteless! we brought down our own coffee as theirs was horrible.
The walk back from the nearest beach was all uphill and difficult to negotiate in the heat of the afternoon.

The good news
Very clean hotel- rooms comfortable. We brought our own kettle- no tea coffee making facilities. Flat screen Tv with a few english speaking channels. Pool area comfortable, plenty of sun chairs. Happy hour at lunch time and from 5-7pm. Wine 1 euro and small beer 1 euro duringthat time. No food served in the hotel at all- just crisps and ice-crams from the pool bar.
Location was good. 5 minutes from strip and bus stop which goes into the old town (1.2 euro one way). There is also a tourist train which runs all day until mid night 4 euro , unlimited use in 24hours.Tip- for a good meal go to a portugese restaurant- we ate on the strip a couple of times and it wasnt great, then went to some of the top 10 recommended by trip advisor and had beautiful meals


































The good
Very clean hotel, rooms comfortable, beds a bit on the hard side.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the front of the hotel

The hotel is not big. There are two big buildings and few small cottages. We stayed in an apartment with kitchen. A building with apartments is located farther from the street then the main building. It is good, because you don't hear the noise from the KISS club. I really don't know whether the noise from this club was or not :) But the disco was every nigth. So if you want to sleep in quiet take an appartment instead of a hotel room.

There are few cafes near the Topazio and one good restaurant just on the other side of the street.

The beach is in the 7 minutes walking distance. There is a free car parking at the street near the hotel.

The most attractive in Topazio was the price of our apartment. It was very cheap to stay there. I very like Topazio.

We stayed here for a week for our summer hols. I was a bit worried when i found out there was a night club across the road as i do not sleep very well if there is any kind of noise. But we never heard a thing. We were staying in the apartments which were at the back of the hotel so it was far enough away from the club.The apartmemts were lovey they were very clean and the maid was in every day. The staff were very helpful and pleasent. We were moved from our first aparment not because there was anything wrong with it i just happened to mention that i would have preffered an apartment a bit higher than the ground floor and without any hesitation i was offered an other one on the second floor. The picture on the web site does not show the true picture of these lovely apartments. They have been done up since that picture was taken.The only down side was the pool was freezing.

Room Tip: Apartments are at the back. But if you were staying in the hotel i think it would be noisy

As the title indicates this is an ideally located hotel for access to the beach and strip, both being only minutes away.

Recent reviews reference the KISS night club across the road but as long as you are not at the front of the hotel then this is not an issue.

The hotel itself is modern, clean and has well apportioned rooms. However, on the down side this hotel has no soul. There is no restaurant or snack bar, there appears to be a bar hidden around a corner in recieption but it never looked open.

The pool bar was fine for a drink and the girl working it was very nice. The pool area is ok, you need to position yourself for the path of the sun through out the day. The pool itself is not good, it was more like a green swamp. The hotel did attempt to clean it for a day during which we used the sister hotel "Arieas" next door, and their pool area is fantastic. I only wish i had discovered we could use it from day one as i would have for the rest of the week.

Overall the stay was good, the price is good and as i said the location perfect so i would propbably return.

Room Tip: Use the sister Hotel pool area.
