My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Sol E Mar between 10th and 17th February 2015. What a fantastic hotel and a great location! The premises are built on the side of a cliff so you arrive at what appears to be a single storey building. On entering on the 5th floor, we were greeted by the night manager... More

We didn't stay at this hotel, but used the cafeteria facilities. Located overlooking the beach, made for a very relaxing afternoon. Outside seating is very comfortable, service was excellent. Large range of food & drinks available. The sangria was out of this world. Huge choice of ice creams available also.

Stayed at Sol e Mar for 7 nights B+B 3rd to 10th February 2015. This is a 2 star hotel with a five star location which more than makes up for the lack of luxury. The accommodation was very clean with all the bedrooms overlooking the beautiful fisherman's beach right in the center of Albufeira. It will be hard to... More

If this was a high-season review I'd struggle to get beyond 3 stars. We stayed as a group in February. Probably 80% of "turistico" businesses in Albufeira (Old Town) were shut for the winter so we spent quite a bit of leisure time in the hotel notwithstanding we were on a golf trip in early Feb. The premises are a... More
