Ranked #62 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2011

Stayed at this hotel for 8 nights from 23rd July. I travelled with 3 friends and we have just returned today.

Booked the holiday a week before we went, we paid £420 for 3 of us. We couldn't find many reviews for the hotel, but as i have been to Albufeira a few times i knew the location which was one of the most important things for us. Our flight landed at 10pm, and we had to wait for a shuttle bus transfer, after dropping off at two other hotels the driver couldn't find the Lageado Sol! Finally we arrived! I was aware that the reception was not 24 hours before we went, so i had asked Fleetway Travel (who we booked the whole holiday with) if they could inform the hotel we would be arriving late. The main door was locked and lights were out! We pressed the buzzer a couple of times and after a few minutes the owner came to the door. he explained this is their first season of owning the apartments, and the first season they have had bookings with Med Hotels. He also said Med Hotels have not been supplying the flight times, so they are completly unaware of of the times people will be arriving. We were shown to our room (B9). A studio room with 3 sofa beds. The room had everything we needed, clean and a pool view. It wasn't until the next morning we found a fault. The shower. After one of us showering, the hot water ran out. It meant the whole holiday 2 of us would end up with a cold shower. Also the shower leaked onto the floor leaving us with a swimming pool....we had wondered why there was a mop and bucket in the bathroom!!

There wasn't aircon in the rooms, however we hadn't actually paid attention to whether the hotel had it or not when we booked. On our 3rd day boxes of aircon units arrived on every floor. As guests were checking out they were installing aircon units. There was some noise throughout the day but not enough to bother us.

Our rooms were cleaned daily, towels changed twice a week and linen changed once a week. There was a lack of storage space however. Only 6 coat hangers and no drawers to put our clothes. Being there for a week was ok, i don't think i could have stayed longer.

The location was perfect, a 5 minute walk to The Strip and a 15 minute walk to the Old Town.

Albufeira is still fairly priced, taxi's food and drinks.

Overall we had a great holiday, and for the price the apartments were fine....just some more hot water would have been good!

The aparthotel was a gem of a find! Clean well kept, great staff, organized, great pool. Bar and resturant to open soon. FREE wireless internet. Great cable channels and not your typical 4 channels. Right Behind Pingo Doce super market...everything you need. 5-10 minue walk to the "STRIP" 20 minute walk to Praia dos Pecadores. Very helpful and courteous staff. SECURE bldg.
