“Lovely holiday”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We stayed all inclusive and were very impressed with the hotel, staff and especially the food. There was a good choice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great value for money for those looking for a reasonably priced summer holiday.

The worst thing about this place is some of the people who stay in it, some of which are very loud mouthed and rude and have no respect for their fellow guests. Staff were generally friendly. The rooms were good, clean and nicely presented. The twin beds were terribly uncomfortable so i suggest changing the mattress. Air conditioning worked perfectly, the bathroom was spacious although the tub was very low and I felt a bit dirty in it as it didn't looks very clean. Very close to the beach and a few other points of interest. There were two pools, although I personally chose not to go near them because of the people.

I have reviewed these apartments before. We have stayed here 6 times now in the last 2.5 years. These are 4* Apartments and they are the best that we have stayed in. We go self catering as I do have to admit the "All Inclusive" element is not for us and isn't great quality. That said the facilities in the apartment are very good. You get maid service daily and the apartments are very clean and have plenty of room. The apartments are not in Albufeira itself and are around a 10 minute drive away. We have a hire car so if you are in a position to hire then I would suggest you do this. The T&C's for car hire are very good in Portugal. The beach is about 15/20 minute walk and you do walk down a steep hill and steps but well worth the visit. I know there are mixed reviews but we have been many times and will certainly be going again. One last thing. You get free wifi in the reception area that can be very slow. Also in the reception area there is an area with plants in the centre. Be careful not to trip over this area. We witnessed 2 people trip and all in reception area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 5th floor. There are great views.

I have visited this hotel many times and can honestly say i have absolutely nothing negative to say.
I dont go all inclusive so i cant comment on tbe food and drink.
The staff are very good although the barmen are overworked.
The rooms are spacious and extremely clean.
There are 3 onsite pools that are cold and in the summer months you will appreciate this.
There are 2 excellent resteraunts within 250 metres. Lagostiere is very famous for its seafood.
And the olimpico does great steaks and has the nicest staff you could wish to meet.
Finally the animation team are fantastic. I can guarantee if you take your children any age up until around 13 they will be entertained. Football tournaments, archery, water polo, through the day and a disco at night.
All in all a very well priced holiday in a nice hotel in a very nice place.

A pleasant stay at the Luna Alpinus. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious, clean and tidy, if a little tired. The hotel runs a free mini bus to the local beach (falesia) and Albufeira old town. A few nice restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance of the hotel.

Stayed on AI basis with husband and 3 children all of which had a pleasant stay - until the day before we left.
Similar to a previous reviewer ( 2weeks ago), i had left my phone charging in room whilst we went to breakfast and spent a while at pool. We Came back a few hours later to find beds made and all in place except my samsung galaxy s3 gone - charger still plugged in!!
We searched the room anyway even though i knew exactly where i had left it but it was not there.
Went to reception who were completely dismissive of the situation and i asked them to call the police which they did but they had not a word of English and it was becoming obvious the situation was not going to be resolved.
Regardless, we spoke with the manager and asked him to check the swipe card system to find out who had been servicing our room and he said it was a maid who has been with the hotel this past 20years and there was no way she would steal my phone!!! I found this completely unacceptable that a 4star hotel would let this type of thing go on and not even question their staff!!
So i am home again now, no phone and not a picture of our family holiday this year, really horrible thing to happen and i would not recommend this hotel to any1 even if they offered us a free holiday!!!

Room Tip: rooms at end have bigger balcony - keep all gadgets with you or use safety deposit box, lesson learn...

Had a pleasant stay at this hotel with my wife and 3 children. Room was excellent and even though we were all inclusive they were great for self catering too. Most of the staff were pleasant and the food was decent. Found it a bit restrictive for all inclusive though as you could only get food in one of the bars and the distance between the two pools was a pain because you had to go up and down floors to get to the north pool. Could only get ice-cream at certain times and bottles of water weren't included. Beach was reasonably close and was a nice walk although the shuttle to the town didn't run on a regular basis which is a shame as your a bit far out. Night time entertainment was great for the kids and they had a ball.
On our last day, my wife left her phone to charge in the room and when we returned, the room had been tidied but the phone was gone!!! Exact same scenario as a previous customer, the staff were no help whatsoever.They accepted no responsibility and almost made us feel like criminals for suggesting that a member of their staff had taken it...really poor from them and it was a bad end to an otherwise pleasant stay. Wouldn't stay here again given the disappointing treatment over the phone and to be honest we have stayed in better.

Room Tip: ! bedroom was fine for the 5 of us and couldn't complain
