Stayed 13-21 December 2014. Excellent location on the beach, best location in Albufeira. Lovely views. Close to the Old Town bars and restaurants. This hotel was great value for money. Quite retro 1970s style hotel, which appeals to me. All rooms are the same size and have sea view and balcony. Room large and clean, with small crt tv and... More

We wanted a winter break- sea view, close to old town so no need for car hire and plenty of restaurants to experience. Chose the Mar e Sol in Albufeira despite negative reviews mainly regarding breakfasts and dated rooms. The location is perfect; the sound of the sea mesmerising; plenty of excellent and good value restaurants and bars all within... More

we chose this hotel as we already knew its position in the old town. We cannot complain on price of the hotel, or standard of the room and its splendid view or even the reception and bar staff( although drinks not cheap). Our main area of concern was the standard of food served for the evening meals( breakfast was fine).... More

Reviewed the Sol E Mar back in 2012 as well. Have stayed here at least 4 times and I must say there has been little change. The décor is still dated which I love, but freshly painted. The rooms are still the same, colours and fabrics, hard wooden based beds, fridges that are often broken but still function (just), small... More

Very nice hotel. Dated but clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast and dinner was good. Hotel on the beach and all rooms face the sea. The other side of the hotel is the old town which was very quiet because end of season. Overall a very good break.
