Stayed here for a week with my wife and 2 kids along with the brother in law and his kid. Picked this hotel from the good reviews on Tripadvisor and I believe it's high rating is fully justified. Was a bit worried about some reviews that mentioned noisy hens/stags at night but even though there were groups of both around during our stay we never were disturbed at all. We had room 224 and it was plenty big for the four of us. 2 beds in the bedroom and 2 sofa beds which were surprisingly comfortable. Tv in bedroom and flat screen tv in the sitting area was great as was the DVD player which came in handy. The kitchen was also fully stocked with everything you like from fridge, cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle etc. Staff were top class and the hotel is spotless. Outdoor pool and little one for the kids also very clean as was the indoor pool too. Located very conveniently with a 5 minute walk to the strip or a fiver into the old town/fisherman's beach by taxi. Overall everybody enjoyed the stay and on our next holiday in Albufeira we'll be definitely back to the Vila Petra.
