“Great week in a great place”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

My boyfriend & I just spent a lovely week in Albuferia. Lageado sol was a lovely little place to stay. Very quiet and relaxed, which was just what we wanted. A 5 minute walk from the strip and 15- 20 minute walk from the gorgeous old town. Our apartment was clean and just perfect for two of us. The only thing I would change is that the pool bar does not serve food and our tv only had 1 english speaking channel. Apart from that I would recommend it and would definatly come back again.

After an early flight and arrival at apartments, Salvatore was waiting to check us in and show us round the apartment. Apartments large airy and comfortable. Noise levels largely depend on fellow holidaymakers so bring earplugs if this annoys you. Just book, you can't go wrong!

We decided on a last minute booking this year and based mainly on trip advisor reviews, plumped for this hotel. First the location. There is a medium sized supermarket 1 minute away, and as we were SC it was ideal. 5 minutes walk took us to the strip, a very lively area especially on an evening; mainly for the young or young at heart though. 25 minutes easy walk took us to the old town, a lovely place with a great combination of quiet bars and restaurants to more lively bars with live entertainment. the towns' beach was good, no problems finding a spot to sunbathe. Shopping in the town was exceptional (gents, find a good bar and let them go !!).
The hotel and pool itself was very clean including the rooms which were basic but functional. Woke up a couple of times early hours with guests coming back, but this could happen anywhere.
We found the staff very nice and helpful. Salvatore was great, very polite and knowledgeable about the area, fixed a problem with the room tv without hesitation. A special mention for Marco the barman though, a lovely helpful chatty bloke, on whom we practised our Portuguese during our weeks stay.
Eating out was always good, with the highlights being the Oceano restaurant ( look up Bikash the usher ) on the beach front of the old town, and the Clay Oven Indian restaurant on the way to the strip. Finally mention for the Ze Peixe Assado fish restaurant (ask Salvatore), where for 15 euros you could opt for a belly busting all you can eat fish dish, the catch of the day. you have to tell them to stop though or else it will keep on coming. No late night for us this day!!
Overall, a fantastic holiday, we would stay at this hotel again without hesitation.

The hotel was a great location 5mins from the strip & 20 mins from the old town there was a supermarket 50m so convenient as we were on a SC holiday. The staff were very pleasant, very welcoming and so helpful.On arrival you are taken down to the pool bar for a free drink. I liked the security of the place you had your own key for the front door so you could come and go when you pleased.. plenty of sun loungers so you didnt have to get up before 6am to put your towel on them.. The kids really enjoyed the pool and most of the time they had the pool to themselves. the pool bar is excellently staffed (mario is a great barman he took time out to talk to us & other guests, the bar closes most nites before 12 or if the bbq is on it stays open later.. so this is a great family place. The appartments are grand only thing no oven,but then again that aint a bad complaint. Salvatore even suggested emailing directly to the hotel to avail of a better discount as through our travel agent we paid alot.we are defintely going back next year with my sister and her family..

After reading all the reviews on here I decided to book a weeks hols here. I found Salvatore to be a bit of a hot head and not helpful at all. One of the most worrying things was a guest burnt some toast in the early hours and the fire alarm was going off for 45 mins and no one turned up. Salvatore was called but was quite rude no apology or anything. The apartment was very clean the pool could have been cleaner though. Marco and all the other staff were lovely and helpful. Salvatore on the other hand was helpful to some people and not others. Another night a big fight happened between some guests staying and again there was no one on hand to resolve issues. This place needs someone around 24hrs.

Our stay at Lageado Sol was excellent in every respect. Our room (9a) was perfect, no leaky Showers or no Dis-ruptive fellow Guests. Salvatore and his Wife were the perfect Hosts with the ideal support of Marcus and another young female who actually supplied my Wife with a Birthday Card a week early. This Hotel is positioned in a perfect location, set back from the main Drag but with the old Town and Strip within Walking Distance. We had a 'Bargain Basement' holiday, 29/7-05/8 and we found both hotel and Resort excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We stayed in 9a and was ideal

Very odd experience staying at this self catering hotel, one minute you think it's great, next thing you wish you were somewhere else, anywhere else.
This is down mainly to very noisy and less than polite fellow holidaymakers, setting not only yourself against the place but putting the very moody Salvatore on a permanent state of high alert.
The noise isn't his fault, but I think he takes it out on everyone in an attempt to retain control of some pretty rowdy clubbers of which the British seem to be worst.
Marco in the bar is ok and the lady on reception is very polite and accommodating.
Overall not a bad place but cheap prices do attract some pretty noisy folk.
Won't be back here, there has to be more peaceful locations elsewhere.
