Just got back from a week at the Lageado Sol and feel like I got myself a bargain.
We arrived at about 9.30pm and although there is nobody on reception at that time there is a number on the door that you can call. Within 5 minutes or so there will be someone there to let you in. Even though we arrived quite late we were given a run down on Albufeira and shown where everything was on a map by Salvatore. He then showed us around our room. A thoroughly warm welcome.
There were 3 of us in a 1 bedroom apt and there was plenty of room, even with 1 person using the lounge as a bedroom. The bathroom is basic but clean. The owners are aware of some issues with the showers and possible wet floors (mop and bucket provided) but we did not have any problems at all.
We only used the apartment for sleeping and showering etc so didn't do any cooking or much food preparation. The kitchen does seem to be fully stocked with cutlery, crockery and utensils though (including microwave). There is a supermarket just across the street and other larger ones nearby.
The pool area is pleasant and surprisingly quiet considering the apartment's location. There are lots of lilos around the pool if you don't like the sunbeds. There is a bar by the pool run by Marco who will look after you as long as you want to stay there.
The Lageado Sol is about 5-10 minutes walk from the strip, far enough away from the carnage! The old town is about 20 minutes walk away or about 4-5 Euros in a taxi (taxi rank is towards the strip).
The reason I gave this property 5 out of 5 was for the welcome and service from all of the staff. If you have any issues or problems or need advice, simply ask. If you want a big shiny expensive hotel with robotic staff, this place is not for you. If you want low cost, friendly accommodation in a great location, this is perfect.
