Not a 4 star at all. Maybe the reception area, rest in need of a big revamp. Rooms could do with reprinting. Beds not great nor pillows. Comparable to some hostels. Bit drab and dated. Didn't use restaurant or spa .good location between old town and new town.weather beautiful for time of year.

Room Tip: Ask for room facing pool area

We stayed (a couple) at Paraiso De Albufeira from 5th to 8th November - very nice hotel - we had a one room apartment facing the pool area (Room 221) which was roughly 20 footsteps to the restaurant, which was handy. We were all inclusive and ate there everyday and the choice and quality of the food was great. It is out of season and the place in general was quiet; there was one night of entertainment midweek and a decent crowd in the bar. Would definitely stay here again, great location between strip and old town - taxi to Algarve Shopping Centre will cost 9 or 10 euros. We did find out that the all inclusive drinks stopped at 11pm, after which you'd pay normal price, but they would now give you normal sized glasses - we didn't realise the measures were smaller (just meant going top the bar more often!) Overall, great trip and I would recommend the all inclusive

After reading reviews I was nervous about staying here (heard about roaches etc) but I must admit its a lovely hotel.
Me & my boyfriend arrived on 31/10 and were checked in right away and given our key (only 1) and also a remote to control the air con - it was great and not as noisy as other hotels ive stayed in - we stayed in a studio apartment (341 3rd floor) and it was huge !
Ok so the kitchenette was a bit dated and the tv was tiny but who goes on holiday to admire the decor of the room and watch tv - not us anyway - the balcony was okay with table and chairs. My only issue was the beds, there is 2 single beds and the mattresses were awful I didnt get a full nights sleep once throughout our weeks stay. The maid service is good and there is no need to take towels as the towels are massive and can easily be used as beach towels or taken to the pool.
The pool is massive but the water is freezing, I never saw more than 3 people in it however the indoor pool is great if its quiet but you have to wear a swim cap.
The bar is very expensive if you arent all inc, it was €5 for a smirnoff ice/wkd, at the weekend the hotel bar was very busy with Portuguese dances and singing etc.
The hotel is in great location between the old town and the strip, id recommend the old town for day and night although it is quiet as it's out of season but great food, I particularly liked Doce Jardin and also Buddy's for a lunch/evening meal although be warned, at every turn is a local trying to pull you into theyre establishment.
We went to the strip twice but it was dead and also quite tacky with drunks and kebab shops etc. The beach at the old town is stunning however dont be fooled into any excursions as they are a rip off. We booked 3 hours reef fishing in the neighbouring town of Villamoura altogether costing €78 which turned out to be 20 minutes of fishing and the 2 crewmen were too busy drinking beers and enjoying lunch. We complained but of course as I am 18 and my boyfriend is 19 they done nothing, the locals are very unpleasant and we could only put it down to us being a young couple, in particular we had a terrible experience in the restaurant next the hotel - chines (chinese restaurant) - they didnt give us eye contact or ask how the meal was etc, we had to ask twice for our bill and waited around 20 minutes then as we got up to leave they finally gave us it. I found the Portuguese woman to be very arrogant and if you are wearing a summer dress be warned, you will be looked at as if you just came off a space ship !
I would recommend the gypsy markets for leather bags and boots etc but they only happen a few times a month so ask at reception to ensure you dont miss out as its an eye opener.
Over all we both really enjoyed the hotel, old town, food etc and if we return to Portugal we would 100% be staying here again.

I was sceptical with the reviews but can now say.. Stay away.. The beds!! Felt the springs!! Pillows? Poor!! We suffered with shoulder aches stiff backs.. Sounds silly.. but u cant relax or have a good rest or sleep.. Rooms wer ok.. Showers ect.. We went self catering.. But no frying pan.. Not many things to cook with, but good restaurants around.. I could go on but would recommend ondarmar which is the one next door to this which we stayed at last year.. Self catering apartments.
