“Well worth a try, we were pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2011

Small front leading to nice cool reception, inet & library. We had road side apartment,which was bit noisey with traffic, but cooler, and which we were pleasntly surprised with the size of it, bathroom, double bedroom and large l.rm diner, double sofa bed (wasnt comfy to sit on) All pleasantly furnished. There is only a 2 plate hob, so cant cook much and no toaster, but there is a microwave & kettle, table & 4 chairs.Beds were good, but pillows bit lumpy. Pool was nice,garden area, not packed, ample beds (October) all clean inside and out, after a few days there was few minor repairs required but nothing serious. Its 15 mins walk to the left or right to old town or the strip area, the small train stop is down rd slightly, and costs 4e a day for as many trips round as u like. Staff all nice, and there is a lovley bar area by pool, servings drinks and snacks til 6pm, dont know if bar is open at night, as never used it. Yes we enjoyed it and would recommend.

Room Tip: Pool view for sun, traffic noise on road side but cooler rm.

Had a lovely stay at Alagoamar, had a pool view so was not noisey! Very friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms and very spacious. Will be recommended. Perfect location, a 10-15 min walk to strip and in the other direction the old town.

We arrived at the Alagoa Mar 270911, and were immediately told that my pool view request for a room was declined. However 'if you live in the city you will be used to the noise'. I have never heard noise like it and could not sit in the room with the door open. The a/c clicked during the night and resulted in a week of unbroken sleep. I mentioned this to reception, who sent the engineer to have a look. They said the noise was normal??

When asking to change rooms it seems the standard reply is that the hotel was full. I guarantee the hotel was not full. On walking into the room, found a mobile phone next to the patio door, that clearly demonstrated the cleanliness of the room. The cleaner came into the room every day but sometimes only mopped the floor, sometimes made the bed. It decided how she felt. Somedays we had our bed made 2 days in a row!! also, there was a rug in our room which was never vacuumed the whole time we were there. Looking at the rooms that were poolside they were vacuumed and the decor was completely different.
Having stayed around the corner at the Real Bellavista twice in the last year, this was a big shock to the system. I will never stay at this hotel on the main road ever again. Not if I want to sleep!

On arrival we were ushered straight out to the Hotel/Apartments next door,obviously they were overbooked.
The Hotel we were taken to was approx 20 yards up the street,called the Paladim..
I cannot comment on the Algoamar but if you feel or worry that the same could happen to you.please read my report regarding the Paladim apartments.

Me and my two teenagers stayed at the apartment for a week. We were given an apartment overlooking the road and after having read previous reviews I was worried and had wanted to move. Unfortunately the hotel was full so were stuck. Our worries were unfounded however and there was no noise to speak off at all.

The reception staff were absolutely lovely and always greeted you with a smile and made the whole experience very enjoyable, this could not be said of the guy who worked in the bar however whose attitude and customer service left much to be desired!

The room was a good size, the cleaners came every day and towels were always replaced.

The room did smell like drains when you first walked in and it was only the air conditioning and spraying of air freshener that helped and this was the case every day. I know that this was definitely not down to the cleaners who did an excellent job - not sure what it was?

I think it was a good place to stay central to the strip, old town and supermarket.

We came with our family and was pleased to finally arrive in Portugal. Outside our apartment we could see the pool because we had a pool side.In the apartment it was quiet up to date, our room was very clean and new built look. The only weakness is that our bathroom door and lounge door had a massive dent in the external side.

The kitchen and lounge area were together and there was sofa bed also a single bed underneath which 2 people could sleep on, which was good for a family of four. The apartment had a lot of space and we could prepare hot/cold food without any problems.except there was no oven just two hobs. When asked to provide bulbs the request was prompt.

Room Tip: a comfortable room and a large enough room to feel relaxed.

We arrived, after requesting a quiet room, to be told we had a room facing the road. It is reallt noisy. If u were planning on just using the hotel as a base sleeping in the day and drinking at night it is fine.

The staff were amazing when we complained and moved us within 3 days. Which was the soonest they could change.

The cooking stuff in the room is mot really conducive to self catering and this hotel is no way a four star its a three. But staff couldnt be more helpful. The location for amenties is cool 10 mins walk to old town/strip and the supermarket is 2 mins walk
