We are seniors who spent most of the month of February at the Alto da Colina for the past two years. The hotel is very well maintained with clean well-equipped apartments: living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms and washrooms. The outdoor pools are beautiful to look at but not to use in February! The indoor pool seems to be well kept. Beds are firm but comfortable and the couches are also comfortable to sit in while watching the miniscule television or reading in the evenings.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
A car is useful for getting to the host of restaurants and stores in nearby Albufeira and Olhos d'Agua. A nice beach is easily reached via the Alfagar hotel grounds across the main road, a ten minute walk. Other beautiful beaches are five to ten minutes away by car. The old downtown of Albufeira can be reached in 25-30 minutes along the main road or five minutes by car or bus.
Our rooms were big and bright with excellent remote controlled radiant heaters which are needed at night. The TV is typically Algarve hotel, tiny and useless unless you're a soccer fan or enjoy the mindless repetition of a few news reports on BBC and CNN. Most channels are in Portuguese or German.
Adjoining gardens of the Balai Golf Village are great for pleasant evening walks.
A large number of Canadian retirees stay here during the winter and everyone we met gave the hotel top marks.
We would definitely recommend it and only our desire to visit other parts of the Algarve will keep us from going back to this hotel this winter.
