Reviewed 7 December 2012 via mobile

This hotel is undeniably basic however serves a purpose and serves it well. It's nothing special however the place is kept very clean and the facilities are very good. The town is approx a 25 min walk away and there is a supermarket 2 mins walk away. The trips to places like the waterpark etc are run by coach transfer and you are picked up from a bus stop right across the street. Evening entertainment is good and I recommend this place particularly for young families.

Stayed here for a wk. Was spotless clean. Kitchen had everything in it pans microwave etc glasses all utensils. Pool area and bar lovely. We were told when booking we were centre to everything but we were about 2 km out of the old and new town. Streets r cobbles and very slippy, near fell a load of times. Got a train up at Brisa sol apartments took u's round to old and new town. Wasn't much shops. Was shops with suveniors etc. Lovely bakery at brisa sol had tea and cakes. Weather fantastic. But don't think I'd rush back to albuferia.

We arrived at the Paladim Apartments feeling very tired, but were very cheered with our apartment, which was spacious, extremely clean, well kept and with a well equipped kitchen. We also had a pool view from our balcony. The hotel is also close to local restaurants and 2 supermarkets.
The reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we developed a special rapport with Helen.
All in all, another fantastic stay in the Algarve!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view.

Spacious clean tidy apartments. Had everything you need plus british tv channels on flst screen tv. Lovely reception area with friendly staff especially helen. Plenty of sun beds pity pool was too cold (end of season). Short walk to old town which is nicer than the strip. All in all a great place for what we paid.

We got a very good rate for the Paladim through Trivago and were expecting a fairly basic apartment. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.

Rooms - Were clean, spacious and cleaned all but one of the days of our stay. Alot of english language channels on the TV and plenty of utensils in the kitchen.

Bar - Reasonably priced bar - 2.50 euro for a large beer. Good night of Karaoke.

Pool - Alot of free sun loungers and the sun worshippers were able to follow the sun. The pool is large but has a few patches with missing tiles (this is the only fault I could find with the apartment).

Location - The old and new towns are about a 10 minute walk in either direction, we spent the majority of our time in the old town. Seemed to be the more lively of the two. Large supermarket and stop for the tourist train are close by.

Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom apartments are on the pool side and are quiet at night. The studio apartments are on the...

From the outside it looks tired and dated,once inside it was not bad.The room was a large one with kitchen and a large balcony.The day after arriving we trieda fried breakfast (4 euros) we could not eat it the food was cold and we asked for it to be reheated he took it away.saying sorry as he went.When he came back with the food 5 mins later it was still cold.So we left it and ate out the rest of the holiday A pleasant pool area to relax in and karaoke twice a week.Only a minutes walk from a large supermarket,and 5 mins from KFC and MacDonalds.

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors will give a better view of the area

This is the first time we have stayed here - stayed at Brisa Sol/Cerro Alagoa before but they were full or over priced at this time. I wish I'd found the Paladim a few years earlier ! Its a little dated - bathroom/kitchen etc; units in kitchen didn't match and there was a hole in the wall where something had been taken out and not fillered/repaired. But it was lovely and clean, spacious (1 bed apartment), and the staff were absolutely lovely.

Its a short walk to either the Old Town or the Strip, we prefer the Old Town. We have a baby and they made a cot up for her and kept changing the cot bedding as regularly as ours was changed, she even had her own towels. They made a huge fuss of her and were generally very friendly which, in turn, made us feel very special and welcome.

The pool looked a bit tatty with tiles missing but another reviewer has stated that this will be repaired for the next season. Not sure whether the number of sunbeds would be sufficient for all the guests in the busy season but there was no problem at all in October, and they are comfy sunbeds.

We only visited the bar twice - which was when the musician was on - fabulous.

We will certainly return to this hotel in future.
