Been back just over a week from staying at the Altamadores for 14 very hot nights. Lovely friendly, great value all inclusive Hotel. Reception staff were very friendly at check in. We were given a map to find our room 211, second floor balcony room overlooking the lovely beach, road/mountain. I did request a high room however the room was on the second floor. 3rd floor rooms are far nicer and some have a view of both the pool and beach and are closer to the restaurant/bar and entertainment, which all happen in the same place! Our room was very clean, well maintained we had been left a welcome bottle of free water and washing up liquid which I thought was a nice touch. The kitchen was fully functional. Overall the room was very nice. The shower was the best shower I have ever had in a room abroad, the water actually stayed in the shower not all over the floor!! Only problem was that the room was so hot!!! The fans helped a little, however air conditioning is a must in 40 degree heat, we never stopped sweating when in the room, hard to sleep, even with the patio doors open. The restaurant served very nice food always something for everybody even my fussy son! We loved barbecue night meat feast..yum yum!! The sweets were a little boring lots of jelly, ice cream, fruit and soft cakes. Good for the kids but i could have killed for a nice wholesome cake!! Loved the self service drinks great idea and nobody abused this. However i believe the bar was shut too early at 11pm and therefore the entertainment too. No big ques at the restaurant but very hard to find a table outside sometimes as it was so hot and most people stayed on their table for the entertainment. Again the restaurant would benefit from having air conditioning if such high temperatures persist. The entertainment was ok we were programmed into Bingo twice a day and the enoying bingo song still rings in my ears!! Funny though, miss it in a weird way! Jamie, a very nice man, tries his best to entertain the troops with waterpolo, killer pool etc At night the entertainment was more for children,. However the hotel would benefit from a kids club especially during school holidays. Then Jamie could concentrate on the adults. The pool area was lovely but make sure you get up at 7am to reserve beds as they are all gone by 9am. The pool was very nice however got a little busy with lilos, kids as it was very hot!! The location of the hotel is very scenic with lovely views, however very high up and bars and night life higher up or lower down for the beach. Taxis are a must so take extra for this. I was a little sad that after your meal you could not go for a stroll without needing oxygen!! Not for people with walking difficulties. All in all we loved our holiday at the Altamadores we met some lovely people and made good friends we would go back. Have a lovely holiday we did x
