Hotel Santa Eulalia
Ranked #73 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Worst hotel ever visited. Small smelly and very basic. Canceled our booking when we arrived and went across the road to the grande real Santa Eulalia. A bit more expensive but a lot more for your money. Would not recommend to my worst enemy

The room was small and smelled of sweat, wet towels and worse! Unfortunately, had to stay there for three nights whilst on business in Faro last month. Checked out a day early and drove back to Porto in the evening rather than staying an extra night and driving back in the morning. Escaped the bedbugs! Probably the worst hotel that I have ever stayed at in Europe.

We rented a superior room with garden view.
The room is 2 m per 2 meters, smells very bad, dirty, and the view is in the back of the residential Santa Eulalia , a virgin place where cars can park, no asfalt, no garden, just mud and bushes. Not RECOMMENDED AT ALL!! We cancelled our booking!!!

Very basic hotel but the staff are all lovely people, very kind and willing to help. There is a buffet breakfast but no bar or restaurant in the hotel and no tea/coffee facilities in the rooms. We did have an issue with a barking dog on the premises one night as did one of the previous reviewers. It is advertised as 3 star but the sign by the front door says 2 star.
Unfortunately it is a long walk to any shops or bars etc.
Overall a pleasant stay but a lot of walking until you find the bus stops and times.

Very nice apartments, small and basic but everything worked and the rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels provided, one hint if you are a larger person like myself you may want to take a bath towel with you!! The staff are friendly and informative. I stayed here with my partner for a week and the only time we had to complain was when there was a dog barking for a number of hour, this was the only downside to the apartments as it never said they allowed pet and my partner has a fur allergy.

The breakfast was basic but was fresh each morning.

Room Tip: rooms to the back are quieter, front straight on main road

In a positive light, the hotel staff were very friendly, the room was clean and it is quite close to Santa Eulalia baech. However, the facilities were not great. There is no bar, just a soft drinks/coffee dispenser, this is a problem, as it is a fair walk uphill to the nearest bar. The hotel is quite isolated, especially from Albufeira. The roms were basic and if you were as unlucky as us, staying in a room at the front of the hotel, near the road, it is noisy. The rooms at the rear are quieter and have somewhere to sit outside. It was not cheap, but saying that, Albufeira hotels are not cheap. If you want to stay in the centre of Albufeira, this is probably not the place for you, but if you want chaep and friendly, near to a beach, then it is ok.

Room Tip: A room at the back, with outdoor space.
