our room was worse than basic - bathroom with cracked basin and tiling and a grubby shower Curtain (though the shower worked well) - the beds were uncomfortable and noisy - the electric sockets were loose and sparked - but worst of all was the food - awful - no worst than awful - We were on a half board...

just back from 5 nights at the sol e mar. Location is just perfect, all hotel rooms facing beach, steps to old town right outside hotel door. There was a man on a piano playing in hotel bar every night, but did get boring after the 2nd night, this wasn't a problem as there's loads of places to go on... More

Second time back to this hotel with the girls, the rooms are quite basic but very clean, the views from the room are stunning, the staff are very helpful and polite. The location of this hotel is superb.

This hotel will take you back in time to maybe the 1970s with a touch of retro class. The whole place has a relaxing feel, the staff are polite and friendly and helpful if you ask questions. The food is more than adequate with various choices and goes with a view of the sea. The location is superb right on... More

This is our third trip to stay in the Sol e Mar and once again we had a wonderful time. Of course, the location helps as the hotel is right in front of the beach and all the amenities in town are just a few minutes’ walk away. But you cannot deny that attentive and professional staff make a holiday... More

Hotel a little out dated but for staff, food, position then look no further. I'm booked to return. Right on the beach. All rooms face sea with no road in front. Five mins walk to old town. Good restaurants bars, shops. Very happy with holiday.

this was our first trip to Portugal and we enjoyed it very much. The hotel must have been the best position we could have had. Every room faces over the beautiful beach. On the down side there is no outdoor pool and if you want to sit on the beach with a lounger and brolly you have to pay 15... More

We were here in the last week of May. 3A 1C. Great friendly welcome when we arrived by the manager and staff when we arrived. The friendliness by all staff continued for the duration. All rooms are big and clean with a sea view. The hotel overall is from another era but that adds to its charm. Albuferia Old Town... More
