“excellent break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

just returned from a 4 day stay at this hotel and what value for money i was very surprised as recent reveiws dont do it justice. A warm welcome at reception and by the weather as well, we were shown to our apartment which was clean and very well equiped hairdryers etc .The area outside has sun loungers, tables and chairs if you wish to just chill, the pool area was very well kept with pool bar and plenty of loungers or shaded areas with comfy seating YES! the comments on building noise just let them do their job and we as guest will benifit in the long run.The beach is a stones throw from the hotel with many resturaunts all reasonably priced the icecream stand is a must as all my party will tell you. To get around and about there is a Free bus that takes you to the old town for shopping or dinner( try the Three Crowns typical Portugese good food) well done CPO hope to return soon Happy Guest.

Room Tip: just try it

We stayed in a studio on top of the hill closest to the main through road in the resort. Parts of this hotel are lovely like the reception and piano bar area but in our experience that's where it ends.
On arrival we we're met by rude, uncooperative staff yet seemingly overworked so we let this go. The polite and friendly porter showed us to our studio (8 min walk from reception-no exaggeration) and our first reaction was it's ok. On further inspection it was very old and shabby in every way, lights not working, no aircon (30 degrees when we arrived) so we we're not particularly happy so I walked to reception to ask for a room change or offer to pay for another room, the reception area had quietened down but was still greeted by the same rudeness and arrogance that we had at check in. Anyway they told me I could not change room unless we paid €330 for a simple upgrade to a one bedroom apartment. Obviously I refused and walked again back to the room (I'm now ready for bed after all this walking). We decided to stick with the studio and start our holiday and got ready for an evening out.
The following day and after a disrupted sleep due to the ridiculously noisy fridge in our studio we decided to explore the rest of the hotel, the pool area is nice with it's lovely surrounding landscape gardens but we never even got close to the pool area as it was always rammed with all sunbeds gone everyday by 10am, the sheer size of this place means there is no where near enough space around the pool to fit all holidaymakers in.
As already mentioned areas of this hotel are lovely and in addition to the reception and piano bar I can say all the grounds and gardens are immaculate but as we we're in the block at the very top of this hotel we never got to experience these enough.
Clube praia da oura is part of a group of hotels in the area operated by Petchey leisure and it's sister hotel Oura Praia hotel was situated directly across the road from our studio block so that hotel was actually closer to us than ours and because it's part of the same chain you can use the facilities of this one as part of your stay. Well thank god we could, more space by the pool, better staff etc etc we ate here in the day and spent all of our days by there pool instead of ours and could see our balcony from the poolside.
Oura is a small resort in itself offering a few decent yet unspectacular places to eat and the beach area is very nice.
SUMMARY..........
If you are wanting to stay at Clube praia don't have a studio there awful.
Don't expect to get anywhere near the pool.
Don't expect the staff to be nice.
Workmen everywhere.
Stay at the Oura Praia.

9 Golden Oldies had a great weeks Break. Bit of a blip to begin with, as apartment had pullout bed on floor, dire near killed us, but reception resolved issue to our satisfaction.
Yep, there is work going on, but had very little impact on our enjoyment. Possibly the amount of alcohol consumed helped in this matter. Resort is still beautiful, with lovely flowers,new garden furniture and lots of sparkly lights at night- or was that the Gin?!
Staff all very pleasant and courteous and Albuferia itself felt safe and welcoming. Weather was glorious, food was fabdelicious and we are hoping to return in not too distant future.
It is quite Hilly, which was hard going at times, but Lifts and alternative level routes available.

Room Tip: Portable fans are in wardrobe. We only found them 2nd last night, hence lower mark for sleep Quality

I stayed here with my husband and 2 year old girl at the end of September 2013, my mum and her friend also stayed in a different apartment at the complex. After reading loads of reviews I was really worried about the accomodation but I have nothing but good reports. On arrival we did have quite a wait for our apartments as it was so busy but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our bags at reception so we made ourselves comfertable and had a bite to eat and a few drinks in the lobby which was totally relaxing! When we were told the apartment was ready I was nervous to see where they had placed us - wow we had the most fantastic 1 bedroom apartment a stones throw from the beach with the most beautiful view ever! The apartment was massive and spotless with a lovely balcony complete with 2 sun loungers and table and chairs. We realised there was no travel cot for our little girl so rang to reception and they said because it hadn't been booked at the time we would have to pay - I agreed to this but literally 5 minutes later the travel cot was delivered to our apartment and reception rang to say there was no charge. At the time of booking I had asked for a nice apartment as it was our wedding anniversary so I was more than happy - another knock at the door and we had a bottle of wine delivered! The staff were amazing at this complex and our apartment was cleaned several times during the week with loads of clean towels. It was a 2 minute walk to the beach - you can take a lift which brings you out near the beach and was also very close to the strip. Food at the apartments was excellent and loads of nice eating places on the strip which was only a short walk. There is also a supermarket a few minutes walk from the apartments. I would have no hesitation to book these apartments again, one of the best holidays we have had.

just returned from a week at the resort. We have been many times and we had another good holiday. The building work didn't affect our holiday at all. There is building works but not too noisy . Grounds as usual lovely. Had a nice apartment at the rear of the hotel. Did request a room at the front but the room we were allocated was ok although very warm .
I was however really disappointed the hotel seems to be gearing to Infinity members . Having been a petchey member for many years I was upset when I asked the infinity concierge about the newly refurbished apartments to be told these will only be available for infinity members. I paid my fees and also pay my annual fees but yet I will be unable to enjoy the new apartments Just because I am under a different scheme. Also there is now an area with new sunbeds etc for sunbathing but again you can only access this if you are a infinity member. The resort of albufeira is lovely especially the old town. I have booked to go again in September but this will be my last trip to this resort.

Hotel was really clean, entertainment not that great (on par with haven) but my son enjoyed it. Excellent location, 2 minutes from a gorgeous beach with facilities. Free shuttle bus into Albufeira at good times. Very close to supermarket & lovely.restaurants - bar Neto was by far the best for service, taste & cost.
