My partner and I stayed here for just under a week and we had the most amazingly blissful holiday. We were looking for a week of just pure relaxation, somewhere we could enjoy the sun, sea and good food, where we could really re-charge our batteries - We most definitely got it at Torre Velha!
This is a real gem of a find and we couldn't have asked for better value for our money..the hotel is set in a gorgeous quite secluded environment, just what we preferred to the busy, crowded Albufeira..it's not what you would call modern but I don't think we would have loved the place half as much if it didn't have it's own character and charm....yes the rooms are basic but have everything you really need: bed,air con,bathroom! with it's lovely location you will hardly spend any time in your room anyway! The pool area is quite small but is exactly what we both prefer from a holiday so no complaints there, and the restaurant offers a limited but tasty menu with either indoor seating or outside beside the pool..I don't think we ate inside once!
though the hotel itself is brilliant, what really made our stay special was the amazing service and friendship we received during our stay - particularly from Kevin and Marta, who whilst we were there were the faces of Torre Velha and couldn't have made us feel more welcome.
If you're looking a nice, quiet, relaxing break then this is for you, particularly if you're a couple wanting to add a touch of romance to that list! It is a gorgeous area with a few beaches to choose from, depending how much walking you want to do..and there is quite a varitey of restaurants dotted around, pick up a free map from the hotel or one of the shops and it tells you where all of the eateries are or try WWW.FREEMAPS.NET - we were so glad to find a free map as it really helped us get the know our way around - lots of really good food to be found - our fave little place was O Amigos, just round the corner from the hotel, a lovely family run place offering quite a varied menu and the only place to offer great veggie food as I'm Vegetarian and there's not always a lot of choice when on holiday...TRY IT!!!
I could jabber on for ages about this place! but to keep it short - This is the perfect place for you if you want to relax and enjoy the sun and surroundings of a beautiful, peaceful environment with lots of lovely people and good food and drink!!
WE WILL BE BACK XX
