You definitly get more than your money's worth..
Excellent customer service, very very friendly staff.
Breathtaking views from the hotel.
VERY clean rooms and bathrooms.

However, if your into the nightlife and the city, it is not a very ideal location as it is about 25-30 min drive away from Albufeira! But for those wanting to escape the busy city- its perfect!
I wouldnt shy away from recommending it to anyone..

We stayed here for 2 nights, in 2 rooms, from 9th to 11th August.

The Positives:
• Self-Service one off evening meal was nice (and staff were ok that night). - Was in restaurant away from main areas due to christening.

The Negatives:
• My room absolutely stank of smoke, despite a no smoking sign, and after a complaint to reception, they finally put some air freshener in which didn't help.
• Breakfast was poor, stale old bread, cheap sausages, and some juice.
• The hotel is very noisy.
• The shower rail isn't fixed on with anything, and continuously fell down (hitting me one time)
• The other evening meal we waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for starters, a further 45 minutes for mains, and we left without desserts. On asking we were promised plates, which never arrived. (We were the second group of people in – and there were about 6 members of staff!)
• The staff make you feel like everything is a hassle.

Overall, what a waste of money! The location is miles away from anywhere, and the hill down to the town of Alte is quite steep. There is also very little there. There are about 3 sets of stairs up to the hotel – which makes luggage difficult! I slept very little due to noise, and the room wasn't very pleasant or comfortable.

Staff – Mainly miserable and made you feel in the way. 2/5
Location – Middle of nowhere! 1/5
Room – Old, smelly, falling to pieces. 1/5
Noise – Very noisy. Hardly slept at all. 1/5

Would I stay again? No – never! This hotel is a DISGRACE and I was so disappointed to stay here. I was actually looking forward to returning to the UK (which never happens on a holiday!).

We stayed at the Alte for New Year and I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and the staff. The position is great with fantastic views for miles around.The rooms and bathrooms were very good and VERY clean, there was tv, air con/heating and even a safe in the room. We overlooked a pool ( not huge but most attractive ) which looked very inviting even on New Years morning! The food was wonderful for the New Year meal (far too much, we were bursting!) and the breakfast was good too. The staff were lovely, very welcoming and helpful, a happy group of people. I would definitely recommend the hotel, even if you just wanted 2 or 3 nights up in the hills to go walking as a break from the beach. A very happy experience!
