just back from a week at the eden with my 17 year old daughter. We were all inclusive but had a very spacious spotless apartment a few mins walk from reception and right across from the pool. Maid cleaned every day except sunday and always got clean towels. Pool area lovely, only drawback not enough parasols for amount of sunbeds, 5 for 84 beds one day, and nowhere to sit in the shade. Snack available at pool bar all day, although A/I guests only between 11-12 and 4-5.30 and not everything on the menu was included which i found unusual. Soft and alcoholic drinks all branded names. Staff all very friendly except Jaoa at the pool bar who only seemed happy to speak to those who were portugese and seemed to have an issue with guests who were A/I as apposed to self catering!!! Food at dining room lovely and always fresh, not enough staff though to clear tables and a couple of times we had to clear and set our own table. Lack of seating at night as only small apple bar open which was roasting inside and only seated about 20 people. Would suggest pool bar opened at night as would have been pleasant to have sat down there in the evenings with music on in the background. A lot of other guests agreed as the evenings were quite boring and we ended up back in the apartment watching tv. Shuttle bus great for going down into the town 4 times a day. Steep incline to walk back up so would recommend a taxi for 4 euros. Old Albufeirra is lovely with lots of eating places and nice wee shops. Good supermarket at bottom of hill and an Aldi and Lidl about 10 mins walk further on. If i had gone with young children i would have been disappointed at lack of avtivities for them heard you had to pay for kids club and when one couple enquired about it were told it was fully booked for a week!!! A wee kids disco at night would have been good to keep them amused too. All in all we enjoyed our week at the eden resort and not sure what peoples complaints are about cleanliness and food. Reception staff very helpful and all speak very good english :)
