We have just come back from a week in Albufeira. When we arrived at the hotel it was very late at night. We were surprised to find some food (salad) in our room which was very thoughtful. The receptionist told us that instead of having a double room we had an upgrade to a two roomed suite as we had... More

Good breakfast, polite staff, good cleaners, great location. Lift takes you to just steps from the beach. Loads of great bars and restaurants all round. Great resort for live acoustic if you like that sort of thing - try Martin Jonathon from 6-9 in Sangria Bar down the Marina or 10-2 in Steps Bar (right next to hotel), Simon in... More

Have stayed at this hotel at least 5 or 6 times and cant fault it or its staff. Yes it was built in the 60s but it is the charm of the place that gets you hooked. One of the best locations in town. Cant wait to go back next month

Nice hotel, all staff and the manager all very friendly. We felt that the buffet dinner menu was a little limited. Hotel is very convenient for both beach [about 10yards away] and town centre. Hotel beach bar serves good food. Hotel does not have a pool or garden area

Good food, clean room, right on the beach. Staff polite and helpful. Close to centre of town with bars and restaurants everywhere, we were half board and the buffet breakfasts and evening meals were so good we only had a snack at lunch time. Other couples we met staying at the hotel had stayed there before and were booking again... More

Stayed here for two weeks in August. As has been said before the location is excellent;the hotel is relatively clean and the air conditioning works. Unfortunately that was all of the positives from my perspective. This hotel is seriously outdated from the old and wrinkled carpets that partially cover the corridors to the mould stained and chipped tiles in the... More
