Arrived late on a Monday night and the reception stayed open just for us . I didn't know what to expect from reading the mixed reviews but when we arrived , I noticed Torre Velha is not very good for first impressions.
When we were welcomed at 1 am by Marta, the lovely manager we went straight to our room which was small but very clean. We'd a mini fridge and a ceiling fan in the room and a small balcony over looking another building. Every morning we would go to the supermarket about 3 mjnite walk from the hotel to get breakfast . Beside the supermarket there is an ATM which was convenient as not many places take card.
The pool area , where we spent most days, was quiet friendly and clean. Most the people staying were young couples too. We found a small hidden beach which was quiet and beautiful but very hard to get to. But there is 2 beaches close to the hotel.
We absolutely loved the pizzeria " the spot" across from the hotel . The food is delicious. There is not much to do in the area of the hotel. Taxis to albuferia are E10 each way so it is a bit out of the way .
All in all we both had a wonderful time here. The staff were great. Bella on reception helped us book a boat trip very last minute and was helpful throughout our stay. Marta is so nice and friendly and Maria is lovely , makes a great cocktail! All very hard workers! We would come back again for another quiet relaxing holiday :)
