“All you need at a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

For the cost its very good,nice and clean with plenty of towel and sheet changes.
Would I go again ? it would be a YES.
As for some of the other comments about noise of other (drunken tourists) when they had booked in 15 people Ill bet that they made enough noise between them.If there is a problem with noise book next time further up the hill by the windmill.
We did not have any noise problem and we were facing the square from the window,all we had to do was close the window and put on the air conditioning.

We had a week's stay here. The keywords are: Small room, being well-cleaned, balcony only for one person at a time. Pool area fine, but swimmers and sunbathers compete with sea gulls who leave their spots. No pool bar - in fact no bar open at all ! There are a lot of bars in the neighborhood though and the noise is to be heard most evenings and nights until around 4 o'clock in the morning. If you love South American flute players, their stuff can be enjoyed most af the daytime from the balcony. Breakfast: Two kinds of buns, toasts, cheese, ham, jam, oranges and a coffee machine that could have been adjusted more properly in my view. Staff seemed quite reserved to me, not many smiles.

The hotel is comfortable if somewhat dated. The location is excellent a few minutes walk to the old town and the beach. There are some excellent restaurants close by. The pool has sunshine until early afternoon and after that the roof terrace is a great place to top up the tan. We felt it was great value for money.

Just back from a 1 week stay in this place. Hadnt stayed in Old Town before and therefore was a bit aprehensive of the place and the area. Shouldnt have worried. This is a great place to stay if you want somewhere which is within easy walking distance of the Old Town Square and surrounding area and doesnt break the bank.
While the hotel is showing signs of age it is very clean and tidy and the staff are brilliant and couldnt be more helpful.
It is a bit of a climb back up from the square but my father who is 86 was with me and he managed without difficulty
The continental breakfast is fairly basic in terms of choice but plentiful and there are many cafe's etc within a short distance if you want something more substantial
I will definetely return

Room Tip: Even numbered rooms on floors 4 & 5 give the best view over the area

This hotel has the perfect location in the old town of albufeira, the hotel is very clean an is well kept up. We stayed here with 15 of us so i booked 8 rooms and all were fine.
The only downside is that the hotel is ver y noisy and when you stay in the front of the hotel you here the noise of drunken tourist coming home in the middle of the night but you cannot blame the hotel for this. Other than this we had a great stay and only slept here. Can advise this when going with a large group especially paying so less money for a weekend.

Just spent 7 nights at the Recife(our 4th visit in about 7 years).Location excellent,breakfast very basic but you get what you pay for.Only downside is the sunbeds seem to be the same ones as 7 years ago very worn,the ones on outside do sometimes have bird poo on(cleaners never really clean outside to be honest).
Rooms very basic,TV very old(sellotape on controls) and some that dont work( iknow you dont go on holidays to watch TV but sometimes for news you do.
All in all a very basic Hotel in a prime location.

Room Tip: Choose a room on 3rd,4th or 5th floor,can be noisy on pool side as it faces the square,and it never...

7 of us spent a week here. It's the perfect spot if you want to spend a week with a few friends - all the best bars and restaurants are within walking distance. The hotel is basic, but very clean and cheap - just what we wanted - somewhere to rest our weary heads (and hangovers) after a day in the Old Town or on the golf course.

Room Tip: The breakfast is very basic - go for room only, and you can have your full Irish Breakfast in Eddies...
