We got to this hotel absolutely occasionally. We were travelling in Portugal by car and decided to stop in Albufeira for a night. Due to the peak season all the hotels in downtown were booked, but the tourist map had some hotels marked together with their phone numbers. And one of them was Mar a Vista. We didn't expect anything... More

I've stayed there early May and it was really nice. The stuff was really friendly, helpful everytime we had problems or questions. The location, view is outstanding. The hotel can be found easily while driving into Albufeira by car. I recommend the hotel for low/mid budget persons, worth every penny.

Just got back from 8 nights staying in Mar a Vista with my boyfriend and although some might think some aspects of this review are negative we actually had a really good time and would recommend this hotel. We stayed in room 210 which was on the second floor but downstairs in the hotel as you enter the hotel on... More

Stayed at Mar a Vista for a week with my Girlfriend and really enjoyed it. We requested a sea view room with a balcony and thats what we got, it was fantastic, you can literally see the entire town and for miles along the beach, was beautiful. Couldn't ask for more for the money we paid (room 301). If you... More

We stayed at the Mar a Vista for a week at the start of September and overall we had a pleasant stay. We requested a sea view and air con in the room. We had a partial sea view and, although the rooms don't have air con, they provided a fan, which helped a little. The view was great. Despite... More

No view, nano-sized TV and a pool in a completely awkward place where everything you see are room windows. This is the best description for this hotel that charges a lot for very little. Rooms are very ugly and I couldnt see the sea, which the hotel name suggests, in portuguese: Mar a Vista = Sea View. They also have... More
