“Better than expected”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

I spent a week here in June self catering with me and my young child. I booked a studio but got a 1 bedroom apartment, the rooms were very big, separate living room and kitchen and the rooms were clean definitely value for money. Only bad thing is the wifi isn't free except if your in the lobby which I didn't understand why because it should be. The receptionist was very helpful, they provide a free shuttle to the local beach, the strip and Albufeira town. The beach is a 10/15 minute walk but there is a hill on the way up and a lot of stairs so if you have a young child make sure you have someone to help. If you don't want to take the shuttle the taxi is about 10€ to the stripe which is roughly 10 minutes away and about 12€ to the old town which is roughly 15 minutes away. The hotel is in a perfect location away from everything and very peaceful, there is a local supermarket and very nice and cheap restaurants. Would 100% come back here today, not really sure why there are bad reviews but ignore them, if you want a hotel nearer to town use your common sense look at a map before you book! Would recommend this hotel to anyone with a family or a quiet holiday!

Such a great hotel, people should ignore any bad reviews on here, only downfall is how far away it is from the old town but they do provide a courtesy bus. I would recommend this hotel also staff were very friendly

We stayed one week and had booked well in advance hence our expense was ridiculously low All drinks at bar etc all reasonably priced Usuallly much cheaper than local pubs, we were not very impressed with breakfasts as quality was poor and repetitive but for 5 euro we decided it was not even worth it Rooms were functional clean spacious and the tv had bbc and three other English channels The only downside of our stay was that it was costing us 30 Euro a day on taxis just to get in and out of Albuferia though the hotel did have a free shuttle which didn't,t suit our times! All in all an excellent venue for families and couples

Room Tip: Book we'll in advance ie 2 months

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.
