“Uma semana sem stress”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Excelente serviço, suites confortáveis e de bom tamanho, com varanda. O fato de ser um pouco isolado, proporciona uma tranquilidade ímpar. Caso não disponha de transporte próprio, existe um shuttle disponível diàriamente de/para o centro - um percurso de, no máximo, 15 minutos. A parte antiga de Albufeira - Albufeira Velha - é indescritível. E, estando em Albufeira, porque não conhecer outras cidades do Algarve?

We have just come back from a week at the hotel 23rd October, very quiet, you really need a car to explore the area, beach very close. Nothing going on in the hotel this time of the year may be better in the season.
We were disappointed with our apartment as it overlooked the roof and the hotel extractor fans were running so could not have door open or sit out for long due to the noise, would have understood if hotel hade been full.
Staff were friendly and room cleaned every day, would not return to this location as just abit too quiet for us, but ideal if you just want to relax.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking hotel roof

We travelled to Albufeira in spring 2008, two adults and one six year old. The location of this hotel is a bit secluded, (in a suburb) away from the action downtown. A shuttle bus was available daily to and from the downtown core, which was roughly a 15 minute drive. Walking would not be an option, which was a bit disappointing. There is not much around the hotel, besides other hotels and condos. We were glad to have rented a car for week number 2 to say the least. Hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and nightly entertainment provided. There are swimming classes in the indoor pool and the ocean is a two minute walk from the hotel. All in all, would stay there again and recommend it to seniors and families with access to a vehicle.

I've just arrived back from a 4 night break here, arrived at 11.30am and room was ready, rooms nice size with balcony and towels changed everyday. We stayed on an All Inclusive basis and the food & drinks were nice, ice creams around the pool were included. The rooms had a kitchen area for self caterring which was well equipped. Beach just a 5 minute walk, not much else near the hotel, went to Albufeira 1 night whichcost €13 to get there and the same to get back, the hotel runs a free bus 3 times a day.

Room Tip: Dont get a room near the reception if you want to go to bed before 12 as this is where the bar area...

If you are after a relaxing break,taking things at your own pace, this is for you.Lovely hotel,staff very friendly and helpful,rooms cleaned everyday.The beaches are gorgeous and just a short walk from the hotel as is a supermarket.There is a free bus from the hotel to Albufera if you are after a more livelier day/night as there isn't really much going on at the hotel for younger couples but having said that it depends on what you are after in your holiday.We looked in the hotel's brochures on activities away from the hotel,there were lots to choose from and we picked the buggy safari and quadadventure both well worth the money and the people running these trips were fantastic.Would definitely recommend this and would go back.

Me and my wife Stayed there for the weekend. It´s a very calm and pleasant hotel. For those interested, the kitchenet is a plus. And the interior pool also. If you want to use it bring a swim cap with you, or you can buy one in the hotel. The exterior pool and the proximity with the beach (about 100m) are very nice too. Breakfast is great! The negative part is that the hotel needs some restauration works, but they already started in May 2011.

I find it ok when we have kids because we can cook our own meals instead of choosing an "all-inclusive", which can be "too much" when we prefer to spend all day at the beach.
Both pools (children and adults) are not bad and kids can have a lot of fun.
Beach is 5 minute walking; there's a supermarket 5 minutes walking as well.

Don't expect to find a real 4**** Hotel nor a Modern one. But it is nice for some peaceful holidays.

Room Tip: Sea view or -1 Floor Apartments
