Hotel slightly dated and could do with upgrading perhaps flat screen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities but the rooms are big and have a really beautiful view over the sea , there is a fridge in the room which is good for keeping drinks in . Air conditioning is very good but I think wifi should be available... More

The hotel is superbly located for the beach and the quieter part of the Old Town. All the rooms have balconies with sea view and twin beds. Our room on the 4th floor was large and bright although a bit dated. The bathroom was in need of some updating and TLC but was cleaned and towels changed daily. Plenty of... More

Loved our two weeks at this hotel. Ideal position for both the Old Town at Albufeira and the beach. The staff all very helpful and friendly (particularly Cocktail Bar by the beach). The room was adequate for our needs, clean and had good air conditioning. Maid service every day and clean towels provided daily. We feel that we would willingly... More

I would and will stay at this hotel again, we were lucky enough to get a room on the 4th floor with a balcany over looking the sea, very relaxing looking out to sea every morning and evening. There was no noise from the other guests, but heard the skinny dippers every night, but that was because we had patio... More

we stayed at this hotel for one week at the end of May into June 2015. We were told it was built in1965 so that would have been before most people could even think about going on a holiday to the Med. Built into the cliff all the rooms have sea views of the lovely beach where you can hire... More
