Alpinus Hotel
Ranked #42 of 152 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is a large aparthotel located a few kilometers from the lively centre of Albufeira. The beautiful Falésia beach is a 10~15 minute walk away.
The rooms are spacious and klean. The ones located near the street are a little noisy because of the intense traffic. The kitchen is well equiped but my room was missing the microwave oven.
Never tried the food but the bar serves the drinks in plastic cups...quite strange for a 4 star hotel.
Nevertheless, a very nice hotel for holidays at the beach.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

Good points: size of the rooms were good and shuttle bus to old town and Beach. The loungers at the pool were abundant. Most of the staff were friendly, bar two members of staff.
Restaurants in the old town and near the beach where fantastic.

Bad points: non-existing wi-fi which we paid 20 euro extra for and had about five minutes time connected! Dirty mouldy shower and tiles in room 425 and drains that smelled when the toilet was flushed. Floor was dirty. Food wasn't great. Taxis we spent a fortune, approx £450 between 3 families for 10 days.

Really couldn't recommend the hotel so would not return.

Ok where do we start...
Staff were very friendly and helpful especially the hotel reception, dining room and cafe staff. The rooms were huge and spotlessly clean, only negative was the balcony door was a pain to lock (107).
The pool areas were kept clean and tidy and at most times there were ample loungers.
There was a huge selection of food to chose from, yes it does get repetitive but then your having 3 cooked meals a day! No-one would go hungry that's for sure, what with drinks on tap and a selection of snacks poolside, staying all-inclusive you can't go wrong.
The entertainment is a bit budget, the team are very friendly and try hard but I think more money needs to be spent on this. The reptile evening was a hit with the kids and the souvenir photos are a must for any family. The courtesy beach bus is good but book early as this gets booked up quickly as the local bus dropped us at a retail park & not the marina we were expecting! Taxis worked out cheaper than the local buses for a family of 4 so bare that it mind if venturing out of the resort (which actually our kids were more than happy to stay on site)!
All in all a very nice family holiday and we would highly recommend Luna Alpinus Portugal!

I have just returned from staying 12 nights in the Luna Alpinus. We actually went 5 nights all inclusive & the others self catering as we were going on trips a few days. Having seen a couple of negative reviews I was concerned before I went that we had chosen the wrong hotel. How wrong I was to doubt! I really cant stress how much we enjoyed the hotel. 2 Bed Apartment was massive with a balcony the size of 2 rooms! Pools were great. Food was great and varied. Free bus in & out of Albufeira & Beach. Free Wifi in reception with soft seating area. If you have booked this hotel & are worried having seen other reviews please don't. Would definitely come back & will recommend to friends & family. Fantastic Hotel.

I went here on holiday and was blown away. The rooms are massive, the food is meh. (There are lovely restruants nearby so don't let that put you off.) The rooms were cleaned nearly everyday and the hotel was positioned in just the right spot. (In a quiet area but not to far from the action!) I strongly recommend but a word of advice: there are two main pools, one out the back beside a bar and a bigger one located around the side of the hotel. It's quite hard to locate the bigger pool if you don't know your way around but if you go into the reception you will see a door on the left saying pool. (This may sound pretty simple but it's really quiet easy to miss.) Go through that and basically just follow the signs saying pool on them.

was very apprehensive after booking to stay here after reading reviews,but had a great time.Apartment was immaculate ,spacious and blissfully quiet .We only had breakfasts which were fine so cant comment on evening meals but used Hugos bar (just around the corner from hotel ) regularly and had some fab local Portuguese food with remarkably cheap wine and beer .Had a fabulously lazy 10 days and were very grateful for the pool temperature after a days sunbathing .small selection of good quality gift shops and eateries nearby and a very good salon with incredible manicures for a very cheap price !! Used safe in room and no problem at all about valuables or phones just took care . All in all after being frightened to death by reviews we had a great time .

Room Tip: room over car park excellent with absolutely no noise disturbance at all
