Just returned from a week in Villa Recife with my boyfriend. All in all this is a decent hotel and base to stay and a good budget accommodation. Don't expect Hilton style luxury because in life you get what you pay for.
Great location- central and convenient for the old town. Those complaining about noise confuses me- we were in room 501 and never heard any drunken people coming back late. I thought it was quiet at night.
Very clean- the maids work hard and are polite.
If you want privacy then this is a good hotel- you are free to come and go as you please with no pressure to buy food/drink on site.
Price- delivers good value for money.
Free wifi is good along with the fridge in the room.
Those complaining about the shower- I was actually really impressed with it. Every shower we had was hot and powerful.
The roof terraces deliver a great view of the area.
The sun beds are dirty and tired- umbrellas would help a lot.
We didn't have the breakfast but saw that it didn't look the best- top tip: go to Eddie's across the road for a fabulous full English for 4.75 euros.
Pool was small and no sun past 3pm.
A good hotel- we don't use a hotel as a constant base and love getting out exploring the local area- if you are like this then this is the perfect hotel for you. If you spend a lot of time in a hotel and enjoy lots of pool days and like a lively hotel bar at night then this is not the place for you. Our top tip would be to get a cheap bottle of wine and some snacks and watch the sun set on the roof terrace. We did this one evening and it was amazing- so private and peaceful- way better than paying 12 euros for sitting in some of the commercial bars in the old town!
As for Albuferia, it is a fabulous resort- some lovely restaurants and glorious beaches. We hired a scooter for 3 days for a good price of 67 euros from Almotos in the new town and got off the tourist trail a bit- highly recommended for quieter picturesque beaches that the Algarve has in abundance!
