“AMAZING!!!! 😄”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

My first EVER holiday abroad, thought our deal was to good to be true on the price factor. So read the reviews ( which was not to great) I have to say we got way more than we paid for, it was absolutely AMAZING! Throughout, flight destination hotel and experience with low cost hols. It was so welcoming and clean, the food was good too. Booking to go back this OCT 2015 so may see you there... Thanks low cost holiday for an incredible holiday all for £109 all in

What a lovely setting for a relaxing early summer break, friendly staff, food was great, location was ideal for us as we wanted that relaxed feel to our holiday what with the "STRIP" being a 5 /10min walk away there was no noise from the bars nd clubs but also ideal if you want a value holiday to experience Albufiera's night life well worth a visit, we will certainly be going back and taking our two 14yr old boys (who will be 15 by then tho) as we felt that the hotel was very family friendly, a wee bit dated but everything you would need in a self catering apartment, with the option of food served at any time at the restaurant. Can not fault the SILCHORO it was our first visit to Portugal and the accommodation was ideal, loved it loved it loved it x

Room Tip: Higher floors have the most amazing views over the grounds and towards the town and beach, stunning...

We booked Silchoro a week before arriving for a last minute trip! Can honestly say I was so impressed with the accommodation considering I paid £115 for 2 people over 7 days! That's around £8.20 a day!

The hotel was in a fine location only about 10 mins from the strip and about €6 in a taxi to Old town. There was also the bus to old town as mentioned in other reviews and a bus stop outside the main road (unfortunately where 'Montechoro' is spray painted) that takes you to old town too.

The apartment itself was clean, spacious and just had everything you need for a basic and cheap stay in Portugal. As others have said, if you want luxury, stay in a 5*. This place is not pretending to be anything other that what it says on the tin!

All staff were friendly and had a good sense of humour! We enjoyed ending our nights in 'bird bar' in the hotel where the bar men seemed very generous with the drink portions!

No offensive people were to be found here in April and there is of course a pool and snack bar too in which I seen people eating from which looked nice enough!

My boyfriend especially loved borrowing a free book from the little library there too!

Thanks to Silchoro for a great last minute deal away!

We arrived here on Thursday 17th and were greeted by a young man called Viktor. He checked us in to 415 and provided us with all the information we could need, including a local map to the beach and old town!

The apartment was lovely. It had all the crockery and utensils you would need and suited us well. I would say it was decorated more locally and traditional than it bring dated. Contained two hobs for cooking and microwave. Kettle and toaster are also provided and helped us on many a morning!

We loved to explore and questioned poor Viktor everyday with something new. He was really lovely however and helped us no end. Another lady on reception, Margarida (hope I've spelt that correctly) was just as helpful and so so lovely.

The only negative I have is an occasion when the hotel manager let herself in to our room when my girlfriend was in the shower. She knocked on the bathroom door and spoke to her, whilst dripping wet in only a towel, about 'the mess' of our room. The mess referred to last nights clothes and a bag of rubbish that was going to be taken out. We understand her role however it could have been dealt with differently.

As a whole, the accommodation was exactly what we needed and perfect for us. A ten minute walk to the strip, 15 minute the beach. We found that you could walk to Old town, on the beach, and took no more than half an hour. A lovely walk and you get to see the stunning coastline.

They can phone taxis for you at a cost of 70 cents and can print off anything such as boarding cards for 30 cents a sheet.

They seem to have everything you could ask for.

Thank you. We would definitely come back!

Friendly, helpful staff, huge 2 bed apartment with 2 bathrooms, a bit dated but loads of hot water and space. Basic crockery etc but all you need. Minibus to town 5 minutes away and leaves you right at beach, restaurants etc goes 3 times a day, taxi fare 6 euros. If you are looking for accommodation on a budget this offers really good value. Could not fault it, suggest you eat out, lots if variety. Thank you Silchoro. Lynda from Northern Ireland
