Our second stay here and will be back again. The whole experience from check in to check out is exceptional. the room was spotless, food both at breakfast and diner was lovely plenty of choice and delicious. staff couldn't be any more pleasant or helpful. Altura is a quiet destination but that is one of the reasons we like it.
Only slight criticism is the bar prices, but because of that we found a great little local bar around the corner where we sent many a happy night...

What a beatiful break we had, beautiful hotel and amazing food. Not a lot to do for kids but still had good time as we rented a car and went to see dolphins... overall a very clean hotel with lovely staff..

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms above 3rd floor have a good beach view...

We travelled as a couple in our 40's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We wanted a nice hotel, somewhere that was peaceful, with good walks and a lovely beach, and were not at all disappointed. The recent refurbishment of the hotel is to a very high standard. We had a corner suite on the 8th floor (808)- views on 3 sides, and more than enough room for the 2 of us. We did use the heating in the evenings and the room heated quickly. The air conditioning from other rooms can be noisy at times.
The breakfasts had a good choice of food. I had informed the hotel I was wheat free before I arrived and they brought me my own wheat free bread every morning. We even had a glass of cava on the morning of our anniversary- it's available every morning at breakfast!! We had one meal in the hotel, and my 'wheat free vegetarian no butter' meal was enjoyable.
Altura itself is very quiet but pleasant to walk around. A couple of bars and 2 supermarkets. We walked along the beach to Monte Gordo (1 hour) - ok but nothing to write home about. Just the other side of the town we found a path through a national forest, and walked for an hour to the Spanish border and Vila Real. Worth a visit.
The hotel lay on free buses to various destinations throughout the week. Tavira was worth seeing. The restaurants along the main strip are very expensive- try those that the locals use- they are much cheaper.
The hotel and pool area was very clean at all times. The staff were very helpful. The reception has a large list of DVD's, and the reading room has a selection of books. We spent one afternoon reading on the loungers by the pool- very relaxing.
All in all would thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Worth upgrading to a suit- very spacious. Corner rooms have great views on 3 sides.

A lovely hotel, very stylish and beautifully maintained. We had 2 superior rooms on the 9th floor. Very spacious will stunning views; you can see the sea when lying in bed, great way to start the day! Pool and garden area very pretty and spotlessly clean with plenty of sunbeds. Restaurant good but with a smaller choice of options than other hotels. All the food I had was lovely but my sons did miss not having a choice of pizza. burger or chips at every meal!!! The breakfasts were very good, with a large choice.There is direct access to the beach which in April was very quiet and peaceful. You can walk along the beach to Monte Gordo. Not a very attractive place but plenty of shops and bars. It took about an hour to walk and a taxi back was 7 euro. The hotel provide a minibus there and also to Tavira. This was well worth a visit; beautiful winding streets and lots of churches and gardens. Altura itself is very small and was very quiet so early in the season but walking left out of the hotel we found a lovely walk following the cycle paths along the coast. Had a great holiday and would gladly return. The only negative was the cost of drinks at the hotel.

Great value for money. Beautiful beach and sea views,the hotel itself is a bit ugly but when you are in it , the views across the beach and sea and pool are amazing. The rooms are really nice and up to date. The hotel offers some lovely extras like shuttle to the nearby towns, DVDs in your room , slippers and robes, and best of all Kids club from 11am to 4pm that is free! The town is quiet and sleepy but perfect if you want a getaway that is great value for money. Food is probably a 4/5 but there is enough choice to find something you like. Overall great value for money, excellent friendly staff and will be back.

Stumbled upon this place, the cost of the room was tremendous value. The hotel immaculate. Food option very good. The food might ideally have been warmer. They work on a buffet basis, but still very good quality AND GOOD VALUE.
All rooms have a sea view! The room itself, glorious but Very Cold! Preferring a cold room to a warm one, this says a lot. No amount of playing around the remote made any difference. We heard others complain that their room was cold too.
That said, well worth the money. Altura is a quaint, unspoilt seaside town with a beach unsurpassed by any we have seen anywhere else on the planet and we've seen a few.
