Ranked #71 of 152 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I always like to start with the good points so here goes:
- the hotel has almost completed a big renovation and it is lovely and fresh inside; there were 2 of us in our room and it was great. Lovely and clean, balcony looking on to the poolside and it was huge.
- its situated right in between the old & new town so 3 euro in a taxi will take you to either
- the salad bar and fresh fruit was always tasty in the restaurant
Now to the not so good points:
- there were 14 of us there on a hen do and unfortunately as soon as we arrived at the hotel reception we were warned by the manager with a 'you respect me and i'll respect you' speech. Not exactly the welcome you would like and as a 33 year old professional i was a bit insulted!
- if you are going as a hen or stag do i'd be wary as i dont think they particularly want you there! Especially when other guests include families and older people. The all inclusive nature of the hotel meant that and rightly so stag and hens would enjoy the alcohol on offer throughout the day, however because more than some enjoyed it a bit much the hotel implemented daily rules which was a bit annoying. First it was only 2 drinks per person, then 1 drink per person, then beer and wine only.....they didnt know how to handle such large groups and the manager was clearly not happy!
- the all inclusive food....well like the title of my review if your expectations are low then you'll enjoy it! Breakfast for me was best part.

I wouldnt say never stay here as that would be unfair - the hotel just need to be clear on the clientele they want to attract as the mix just didnt work when we were there. If you're a hen or stag do then do your homework first - make sure they're ready for you!!
