“really friendly hotel”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

me and my husband have just returned back after a week 22nd -29th october.the weather was a bit hit and miss,3 days of rain and 4 days of lovely sunshine but it did not spoil our holiday.although the hotel needs badly updating,the staff including the cleaners were excellant.bar staff cannot do enough for you and especially the reception staff.our room was huge,it was it bit noisy at night,dogs barking.young ones coming in a bit rowdy,but after a few bevvies who cares.had some lovely meals in the old town and near the strip,very cheap.found a very cheap supermarket at the back of the hotel which was really cheap.cant complain about anything.had a really good time.

Room Tip: rooms at the back of t5he hotel are a lot quieter

I stayed here from 23 - 27 October. Had such a good time. Rooms are basic but they're all you need. Who goes on holiday to spend their days in the apartment? Staff were extremely amazing especially Bruno and Marco from the bar and Marg from reception. Amazing pool area and decent walk to the strip and beach.

Me and 2 friends came here from 5th - 12th of October of this year. After reading the varied reviews we didn't expect much and were pleasantly surprised when the hotel was fab and the location was excellent. As 3 18 year olds we wanted to be near the nightlife and were not disappointed. Was my 2nd time here and will defo be coming back to albuferia next year! We totally loved it, so don't think much of the bad reviews if you want a quiet, near the nighlife, shops and places to eat, this is the place for you!

Room Tip: We were on the top floor, room 810 and was no noise at all. very nice

I was at the hotel for a week from 16-10-13 with my girlfriend and I though the hotel was fine.
Other people have mentioned the two separate sofa-beds they have in the rooms, but we just pulled them together, so that wasn't a problem.
They had a couple of pillows and blankets available for use, but I didn't really need a blanket since it was warm enough to sleep without one at night.
The only two things that I'd like from a hotel that this doesn't have would be wi-fi access (the internet room they had seemed pretty useless as the computers/connection were very slow) and probably a couple of English t.v channels as my girlfriend and I are the type that retire to the hotel room quite early as we aren't drinkers.

The hotel had a safe that could be rented for 23 Euro for the week (with 8 Euro being given back to you at checkout as the deposit) which was very useful.
There was also a free shuttle service 3 times taking people to and from the Old town which was very handy - we used it most days!

The reception staff at the hotel were lovely and friendly, Louis probably being the most noteworthy!
Considering the price we paid though, the hotel was great value.

Room Tip: Get a room over looking the pool for the best view.

I can't really understand the bad reviews for this place? It's absolutely ridiculous! It's cheap and excellent! People saying the staff are bad etc, a load of bull, they couldn't have been nicer! Any help we needed they helped best they could! Even when the weather was bad and we asked the staff about indoors and they were only happy to tell is what was on offer! The apartments were great! Couldn't be happier

We went here on the 30-09-13 and will never return. Having red the reviews I taught it might be okay but it was awful. When we arrived they we very rude just grunted at us rather than spoke to us. When we went up to our room in the death trap of a lift we opened the door to firstly be met with a horrifying smell when we walked in there was two sofas at opposite sides of the room. No Blankets, no pillows no sheets. We taught there must have been another room with a bed in it but no thats how they expected us to sleep at opposites sides of the room on and old smelly sofa. We went down and asked why was there no blankets or beds or anything to what we were told thats what they provide in a studio room so we asked from an upgrade to a better room which they said no. The hotel was dirty and smelly we got our bags and checked out and when they refused to change our room we said that was it. It was way away from everything else with no Taxis near it. We were refused any money back and they were very rude. We will never be returning and make sure we let everyone know to stay clear of there. Be warned people was an awful expierence and it would have ruined my whole holiday to stay here.

After reading the reviews after we had booked this hotel we were dreading our holiday. When we arrived on 10/10 the room wasn't ready but we arrived at 11:30am. We was told our room would be ready at 12:30 which it was and we weren't disappointed. The room was spotless and the bedding and towels fresh with a cracking view of the sea. We couldn't have been more pleased.

The courtesy bus is excellent and we used it many times during our stay. If you go at the times the driver will keep going back and too until everybody that wants the bus has been picked up.

Our kids loved the pool and the arcade room. We only checked out yesterday but wish we was still there.

We will be booking again for next year :-), best holiday we have had for a long time.
