This hotel is brilliant. It is in the best location being a short walk into the old town of Albufeira, so very accessible for restaurants and bars. The cleanliness of every part of this hotel is amazing, it is spotless. The indoor pool is an asset but as the hotel has direct beach access via the sun terrace, it's equally possible to use the sea. Breakfasts were fantastic, so much fresh fruit to choose from with lots of breads, meats and cheeses, plus a couple of hot dishes and super efficient staff to replenish stocks, take away dirty dishes and keep the place immaculate. The owner and her team are a winning combination, their only aim is to give you a great experience and that's what my husband and I certainly experienced. Thomson's definitely found a little gem for their Small and Friendly brochure.
