This is a superb hotel with great accommodation and very helpful staff. The rooms are still of a very good standard and the hotel is kept very clean. The breakfast was good and a few different bits to choose from. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. Its location is a little out of the center of Albufeira, nicer... More

This hotel is worth more than 3 stars. It's perfect for a quiet holiday as it's away form the main Albufeira resort. The rooms are large and airy, ours had a little balcony overlooking the quiet road to the side of the hotel. Both the room and the ensuite bathroom were very clean. Staff are very friendly, especially the bar... More

Great hotel in a location that is out of the main town and the noise of the strip. A taxi cost 10€ from the old town. Our room was at the front of the hotel with a sea view and free aircon. The main road was a bit noisy when sitting out on the balcony but as we were chilled... More

Lovely location, great selection of restaurants close by. The rooms are still of a very good standard and the hotel is kept very clean. The breakfast was not bad. The coast is not right by the pool but beautiful beaches are about 15 min by foot away. Yellow fish was our first option in albuferia for private transfer after reading... More

The coast is not right by the pool but beautiful beaches are about 15 min by foot away The breakfast is more than adequate. The reception staff were very friendly... More

Great free wi-fi was a bonus.The breakfast was tasty and... More

This is a nice hotel but there is absolutely nothing to do here. It cost us a fortune in taxis to Old Town, €7.50-€8.50 each way. It was either pay it or stay at the hotel and be bored. We travelled with two teenagers ages 14 & 18 they hated it. We didn't go to the beach, but we met... More

This is the 5th year running that we have stayed at this hotel and we have never been disappointed. I have read a few reviews that the management of the hotel has changed and it is not as good as it used to be. I have to say that I disagree with those reviews - it's true that many of... More
