    Superb

    Excellent friendly staff, and location great for the Centre of Albufiera with being quiet enough at night too.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Fantastic location, decent restaurants very close by. Short walk to the escalators which take you into the centre of the old town in the evenings and to the beach during the day. Parking directly outside the hotel. Great pool and outside sun bathing area, with fantastic views over the ocean.

    The rooms need updating and I am sure if this happened nobody would mind paying more, due to the great location close to the town and beach. Lack of air con was a problem during the evening in the summer.

    Exceptional

    the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful, i moved from a studio apartment to a one bed apartment without any hassle and the staff were more than happy to help. i will be returning to old town Albufeira and this is where i will be staying again!!! i would recommend this hotel to couples and families, as it is in a good location, just 5 mins from old town and the beach and it is quiet.

    Superb

    Excellent value for money. Typical three star standard but the price more than makes up for it! Location is excellent! Nice clean pool, nice and quite when we were there. Kept nice and clean by staff.

    Fabulous

    Nice big rooms with good view over Albufeira and the sea (4th floor). The rooms are a bit 'used' but very clean. Hotel is not far from the beach. Big supermarket (Modelo) at 10 minutes walking. Many small (local) shops around the hotel.

    Television is middleaged and very small (14') for such a big room.

    Found the staff very friendly and helpful and room/hotel very clean.

    Found it unusual that there were no umbrellas round the pool area.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful and it is close to the centre of the old town.

    The apartments are a little tired but are being refurbished at present.

    Central location

    That there was no real bed: two separate kind of sofa's, absolutely not appropriate for any kind of couple!

    Plenty of space in apartment. Decent size balcony. Good garden & pool area.

    Very dated, faded furnishings. Cracked tiling in bathroom and throughout the flooring in the apartment.Bath surface cracked and starting to rust.Peeling paintwork and rendering around the balcony. Solid, ceramic tiled headboard, sharp edges and very dangerous.Beds uncomfortable, recommend that you use the sofa-bed mattresses (only works if there are only 2 using the apartment!). Staff were unable to arrange a transfer to the airport for our return at the time required. We walked into town and arranged transfer for less than the hotel charged on arrival. Hotel claims to be 400 metres from the beach but they fail to state that it is located on a hill. Totally unsuitable for anyone with mobility or sight restrictions due to uneven walking surfaces. Very noisy plumbing, could hear toilet flushing in next apartment! Very poor insulation, every door that closed echoed. Bedroom window opened onto public corridor, very insecure. No air-conditioning. We re-booked this twice as the price came down, had we paid original amount 405 euros we would have complained while there. We paid 249 euros it was probably worth no more than 200 for the week.

    Bathrooms a tad shabby

    Very good

    Good hotel with good staff especially cleaning ladies and the ladies in the reception, always a smile and doing their job well. The location was good for reaching the city and the beach.

    1) One older gentleman in the reception gave a very negative mood and I recommend that he should not show his face in the hotel at all in contact with guests. 2) The bed in the bedroom was very hard and I missed a mattress. We used the mattress in the kitchen on top of the bed.

    Fabulous

    We have stayed here three times so know what to expect- good basic 3+ accomodation. The situation is excellent- convenient to the old town and some good, reasonable restauranrs. There is free parking which is relatively secure and provides the oppertunity to utilise a greater part of the Algarve. And any shortcoming was more than compensated by friendly, helpful staff and a fabulous view.

    It is important to have an apartment that has the bedroom window opening on the sea view side (alternate apts.have the bedroom window opening onto an internal corridor)- while it can be requested ione is unsure until arrival whether or not the request can be accomodated!! Also while the apt was clean it was very "worn". For example one would not be tempted to bathe in the very chipped bath - common to all three apts that we have stayed in. However the shower was more than adequate!!

    Close to the nightlife, nice pool area.

    Very noisy in the mornings, car drivers constantly blaring their horns and bedrooms back onto the communal walkways and the staff could talk for Portugal. No air conditioning, bedroom really hot, and they charge 1 euro to call a taxi which is a rip off.
