Reviewed 3 June 2014

As the title says, this hotel is all about it's location. I booked a very cheap late deal at the end of May and initially, when I arrived at the hotel I was a little disappointed as it didn't have a pool (I knew this), no wifi and my room failed to have a balcony.

HOWEVER, what you will get is a no frills, very clean, self catering apartment with a fully stocked kitchen and working white goods.

The staff were very friendly and the rooms were cleaned 4 times in a week.

The best part of this hotel is it's location. You are literally 50 yards from a beautiful beach and 10 yards from Albufeira Old Town. We were 100 yards from the taxi rank, which was ferrying in people morning, noon and night from the surrounding areas.

So if like me you prefer the beach to a pool anyway and see your room as exactly that, a place to lay your head, then this place is an absolute bargain.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view or a balcony, as not many of them unfortunately. Also their is an additional cos...

Well I don't know where to start, let's start with the one and only good point the location which is fantastic right opposite the beach ask for sea view room if you can't find any where else to stay . I certainly would not recommend this place on arrival we found the hotel bar not open and wasn't open for the week we were there, they have 3 swimming pools with no water in and after talking to a local has not had any in for over 12 months when my son asked about pools was told large pool over road the sea, no gym as advertised. The whole place is dirty ,turned bath on you get brown water coming out if you want a shower you have to hold the shower rose in your hand no shower holder .i am just happy there are loads of nice restaurants local because you certainly couldn't cook in the rooms if you wanted to . There was a stag party in the next room and even they said what a dump it was that's putting it politely

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Apartments showing their age and could really do with upgrading.
Couldn't fault the staff at reception and the cleaners.
Fantastic location near beach, shops and plenty of bars and restaurants.
Sofa type beds not very comfortable.
Would I stay here again ?
Yes.

Just returned from a weekend break at Turial Park, It's in a great location, right on the beach, so near everything!! Kim in reception was great fun & chatty. We had a little problem with the electricity, he came up immediately to fix it... turned out it was our fault :) he just laughed! Beds are hard but then they all seem to be the same in Albufeira .I put a blanket under my sheet- it worked!:)
I would definitely return there for the nxt break.
Unless u like looking at walls of other houses & apartments... book a sea view :)

We've been there two weeks ago for a little weekend break. We got two nights in the hotel. We took the self catering room which was without balcony but with perfect sea view. In the evening from 8pm till midnight we heard live music from the bar on ground floor but it makes our stay even more romantic. Self catering equipment was good enough for us...and there was the most important thing - corkscrew! so we were able to open our Portuguese wines! The location of the hotel is really perfect! 2 minutes to the beautiful beach, and 2 minutes to the city centre! Maximum one minute to the nearest mini supermarket.
The room was clean, staff very friendly and helpfull. It wasn't luxury room but deffinitely for this price you won't find anything better. I can recomend it to couples, groups or even families.

The beach is unbelievable beautifull and sand is so soft! I wanna go back there soon.

Be carefull with sun! We got 30 degrees at the begining of May! Protection cream didn't help! It's hard to find any shadow there as the sun is always over you!

Room Tip: Ask for sea view or pay extra for it. We 've been in block C.

We booked through 'on the beach' for a long weekend in April 2014. About half an hour from faro airport (we got a transfer there and paid €40 for a taxi on the way back as there is a taxi rank 2 minutes from the hotel). The hotel is right on the beach! It is surrounded by amazing restaurants which all serve food and drinks all day and into the early hours.

We received a lovely warm welcome and went to our room. We paid £20 extra for a seaview and were not disappointed - the view was gorgeous! The room was a really good size with two single beds, a decent bathroom, a large lounge/kitchen and a little dining area. The decor is dated but we didnt mind as we mainly used the room for sleeping and showering and spent all day out.

We were self catering but ate out every day for lunch and dinner so cannot comment on hotel food. We also didnt use the pool as we swam in the water so cannot comment about that either.

We spent a day at the marina doing boat tours/parasailing etc and this is within easy walking distance (or about €7 in a taxi). Theres nice shops all about and plenty choice of food and drink.

Downsides:
We were self catering and although there was everything you needed it would have been easier to have a kettle instead of boiling a pan of water but this is a very minor niggle.
There was a bit of outside noise on the Saturday night due to the football match but i am a light sleeper so i woke up a few times because of it - i just put on my headphones and went back to sleep straight away. if you are a light sleeper i would maybe take some earplugs with you just in case.
TV looked old and no remote, only had a couple of channels but who really watches tv on holiday?
Window/doors are a bit rattly but again this is a niggle not a complaint.

** if you just a want a nice cheap hotel thats on the beach then this hotel is perfect for you as it was for us! **

Room Tip: we loved our view from a sea room. we noticed other rooms with balconies overlooking the beach so t...
