Frento mar is a residential ( what we would call boarding house ) not a hotel , hence no pool , restaurant etc . If you just want a clean , friendly , nice place to get your head down with the benefit of an outstanding view at a good price , this is it .. We had breakfast sent... More

This was a very good hotel at a reasonable price in a great location. It is very close to the beach, bus stations, and the center of Albufeira is ~5 min walk. The room we stayed in was an old-fashioned, the wardrobe was not that clean, but overall it doesn't matter if you are not going to spend your day... More

I had arrived in Albufeira without a hotel reservation, but trusted on the fact that in late September it might not be difficult to find something basic but good. Searched for some options and passed by Frentomar twice - it has such a discreet facade that I didn't notice it was a hotel - but in the second occasion I... More

Firstly it isn't a 5star, nor a big resort, but if you'd prefer to go to the beach or be near the bars & action, then this hotel works well and is great for its price. We caught the train from Lisbon to the Albufeira station and then to save a little cash jumped on the circular bus to the... More

Albuefeira has expanded enormously in recent years, so it's great to find somewhere with character in the old town. We had a spacious 1st floor room with a terrace, rather than just a balcony - great for drying washing! Unfortunately there's no lift if you're disabled. A minimal breakfast can be brought to your room at extra cost, but there... More

Perfect location right near the beach and in the nicer part of town. My room was modern with a balcony and a sea view. My room was cleaned daily (great to get rid of the sand), had a fridge, kettle and fully equipped bathroom. Staff were friendly with very good English.

Good value for money but don't go expecting the Ritz. Nicely set in between the old town and the marina, great view right next to the lift which takes you to the beach. Staff were happy, room was cleaned daily, WiFi was fine on the 1st floor, room and bathroom was newly kitted out by the looks of it.

This hotel (if it can be called a hotel) is really a big disappointment! They have nothing but THE view! Everything is just basic. Room is small, furniture is old and outdated. During our stay they left only one small soap at the beginning. Towels are changed every second day (not every day!?). They did not even bother to clean... More

I didn't have high expectations for this town or this 'hostel' but was pleasantly surprised by both. The rooms we stayed in were freshly re-modelled, spotlessly clean and even though not classified as sea view had balconies with soothing views out to sea. The staff on the reception were helpful and eager to please. If you're looking for an affordable... More
