Altea Beach Lodges
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in Dhermi
Reviewed 16 August 2013

It was the worst hotel that I stay in my life. Rooms are at the limit of acceptable. The bathroom it was wretched. No room services for three day that we stay in the hotel. Services are very very poor and the hotel staff are very lazy and apathetic. The breakfast it simply ridicolous (no coffee included). The beach it was full rubbish: the only worries of the beach boys it was to ride acqua scootes. The beach umbrellas goes quicly busy from all other people that not stay in the hotel

Wonderful location. Just in front of the sea with it great turquoise color. The bungalows are very nice, specially since 2011 when a new administration was set. Fresh fish and sea fruits with absolutely tasty local olive oil us the best combination. If you ever visit the area, it's a place to absolutely not miss.

It is the only place we love to go with my family and friends for holidays in the south of Albania that satisfy our requirements. It is near the sea, the room are very good, the bar and restaurant are excellent. The staff is very friendly. I will suggest to everyone that want to have some holidays in south of Albania.

I stayed here on August 2009. If for a few days, this place is a delicately marvelous one to stay. The location is not yet part of a entertainment/tourism chain. Partially unpaved roads will take you in this oasis. Huge development could come here when the so rumored tunnel is built. The tunnel, could make driving here from Tirana, the capital, about 2 hours. Still, there are some bars, a few hundreds of meters away.
My family stuck with Alte's own restaurant and we tried no other one. (Filoksenia has medium to low quality. They made us an ugly spaghetti one night). I shouldn't miss out that the restorant, at that time (Aug 2009), had an Italian chief.
There are no other buidings ata all around the complex, in its Right/Northern side. While the closest buiding on its Left/Southern side is some 300m away. The beach in its peak season has only a few tens of sunsitters. The shore has gravel and plastic shoes is advised to be able to walk on. No quality shopping possible, unless you drive some 20 km to Himara. Still, you could buy excellent olive oil and bee honey, in the homes. Historically with an Albanian prevalence, currently on Greek funded ego, local people's attitude stays in between harsh character and marginalized minority facade.

Hopefully we staid only one night! The location was fantastic, individuals bungalows with olive trees all around and a pure blue and clear beach in front! But the bungalow was so dirty, no AC working, just a shower jet for shower, very small bathroom if we can say bathroom ! A lot of spiders and Mosquitos as the isolation was not good! But good restaurant with fresh grilled fish and nice bar on the beach with excellent cocktails!
Then go there to swim and eat and have fun because it is like a hippy village but don t sleep except if you only want to pay high price for nothing!
