Stayed here as part of a running holiday - this is a popular hotel for runners as there is a running track next door, a cross country course down the road, many trails and of course the beach.
The Stella Maris itself is hard to fault.
I was in a studio single which was very comfortable and clean and had everything I needed. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Wi-Fi good at 12 Euro for a 24 hours (not per calendar day as rate card might suggest - so buy a 24 hour ticket and it will last all week). Breakfast plentiful and good choice. Two good aircon units in the studio, large immaculate bathroom.
This is outside the hectic Albufeira town centre so it is a peaceful and relaxed area. There is not much locally other than the beach and a small shopping mall - but you can eat in a different place everynight for a week without getting into a car. The apartment kitchen was fully equiped so you could cater for yourself if needed but the choice of food in local supermarket is not brilliant and the local places were quite reasonable. About 30 min from Faro by taxi. Nearby Villamora marina worth a visit.
