We had a car and it was very easy to get around from this location, once we found it. We drove by it twice! Had sufficient parking and staff was helpful and friendly. Booked some tours thorough them and pricing was good as where the tours. We had a large room with seperate sleeping areas. Very nice and a view of the Ocean. Nice balcony with cloths rack and table with chairs. The cons were that service was slow at times and the room was a bit dated. They do not supply dish soap, which was very odd as most places that have a kitchen had that. They only gave one dish towel and only three bath towels for a family of 4. Had to request extra, and got them myself. Not a big deal, just annoying. Would still use them and go back again. It's a good location and cleaner and nicer than most hotels for tha price in the area.

Room Tip: Make sure you get either an Ocean view or garden view room. They are larger.

The hotel self catering accomodation was of an excellent standard the accomodtion looked to be recently decorated. the rooms were of good size with all the facilites likely to be needed . The old town was a five minute bus ride away with the bus stop being just out side the hotel. the strip was about 5 to 10 minute walk away. There is a good supermarket with deli and bakery section just round he corner from the hotel.On the whole i could not find anything negative worth noting. We did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food but since there are hundreds of restaurants within easy reach we did not think it was worth bothering with the hotel restaurant or bar. the pool was fair and there were plenty of beds but at this time of year you would expect that.I rarely go anywhere twice but if i was going back to the algarve then i would definatly stay there again. Teh beds were quite fim but i like a firm bed.

Room Tip: the pool side gets sun all day and the rear gets shade

This was our second vist to the Luna Forte da Oura, and we were not disapointed! We stayed in the hotel from the 20th september till the 26th.
When we arrived, we were greeted by an exceptional member of staff who, despite the time (around 11pm), was remarkably cheerful and helpful. We then had the added bonus of being upgraded to a top floor apartment which was very spacious to say the least, and also came with a pool view.
The apartment was cleaned everyday to a high standard and had everything we needed to prepare meals etc.
All the staff we came across were polite, happy to help and spoke perfect english. This hotel is in a perfect position for nightlife, beaches, and the old town, which we walked to, but a taxi was only 4 Euros.
Another excellent holiday in Albufeira at the Luna Forte da Oura! We will be back next year! x

We went to the Luna Forte on the 29th September for a week and had a marvelous week there. I had already read the previous reviews and could not find a bad one that any one had written so went ahead and booked. I was not disappointed!! The staff all spoke perfect English,the food was lovely and very well cooked by an English chef (there was a carvery on a Sunday and Wednesday and was as good if not better,than we have in uk and reasonably priced at 8 Euros if previously booked)the apartment was very spacious and very clean and the air con was brilliant and was on all the time if needed as it was worked by a card in your room. The cleaners came every day with all towels etc. The pool was not as small as I had read by others and immaculately clean as were the sunbeds, which there were plenty of so no one was fighting over them. It took 5 mins to get to the strip and the late stuff but having said that, every bar was open late and we were not getting home some nights until 4am wherever we went. I would def book this hotel again for next year and would recommend it to anyone be it couples,families, young or old. There was also live entertainment on 4 times a week until 11.30pm so you could still go out after it had finished. We had a fabulous time and cant wait to go again.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms have a good vew,we were in 213 and overlooked the pool

Booked this hotel just 4 days before departure and ticked all the desired boxes at the travel agents, balcony,sea viewpool view etc expecting at least one of these options.
when my wife and I arrived we were delighted to find that all of our expectations were met, balcony, sea and pool view, central for all the entertainment and nightlife and beaches but not near any noisy bars or clubs.
A 4Th floor apartment, access via 2 lifts, which must be the biggest 1 bedroomed apartment for two people we have seen,very clean if a little dated.
Maid service every day and beds changed every other day.
Ideal location with a bus stop just outside.
If you want the old town simply jump on a bus or walk to the right and onto the strip and catch the land train which runs all day and into the night for 4euro return trip.
Nice pool if a little cold but nice when you are in. Plenty of sun beds.
Try the carvery which is on on Sundays and wednesdays, an injection of home when you are away, if you want it.
Overall a very pleasant and relaxeing 10 days,complimented by a graet location, helpful and friendly staff.

I got a late deal to Albufeira and was worried that we wouldn't enjoy it as we usually prefer holidays experiencing the culture of a different country/place. However, these apartments are in a good location, near pretty beaches such as Santa Eulalie and easy 30 minute walk to the interesting Old Town of Albufeira.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view

Stayed at the Forte da Oura for a week with three friends. Hotel is in a great location, a few minutes from "The Strip" and a short cab ride away from Old Town. There are no rowdy bars nearby so it's quiet enough, but there's plenty of shops etc within a few mins walk. The pool is nice, large enough that it never gets too busy. There is a bar/restaurant on site but to us it seemed very expensive. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk away from the hotel, really not that far at all.
Our room was fine, if a tad small. Bedroom, lounge, balcony and that was about it. For four adults it was really quite small, but that's my only gripe. Oh that and the paper thin ceiling. People in the room above seemed to spend hours every morning rearranging the whole room. Luckily I got to hear it all.
Overall I enjoyed my stay, I wouldn't say no to going back, but would definitely have no more than three to a room!

Room Tip: Rooms can technically sleep four people, but if you're all adults the you'll have a tight sq...
