PLEASE READ UNTIL THE VERY END. Many of the reviews I read said that the hotel required quite a bit of TLC as it was very dated - this is entirely true. The interiors could do with a bit of work as the hotel is very very dated. I also read some reviews which said that the beds were quite uncomfortable - also true. HOWEVER, the hotel is spectacularly clean and the rooms are insanely large. The staff are all so incredibly lovely (shout out to Fernando - the guy's a legend) and are always there to help. The swimming pool is delightful, and the hotel boasts lovely views from all around. If you are concerned with modern interiors a memory foam mattresses whilst on holiday - then perhaps you should stay away. But, if you are visiting Albufeira for a delightful holiday with fantastic people in an unbeatable location, the Almar is certainly the hotel for you.
PS. Upon arrival, the receptionist told us that a miscommunication had occurred between our booking provider and the hotel staff. Rather than cancelling our stay (which they easily could have) the Almar upgraded us from a studio apartment to a 1-bed apartment, free of charge. This proves what great people the staff are there. Furthermore, I, somehow, accidentally threw away some Euros. When emptying our bin, the maid found them and returned them to us. The staff really are a credit to this establishment.
