After reading earlier reviews we were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel to be such a fantastic place to stay. It has been renovated recently and new owners.... ignore previous reviews! This hotel was so clean (as is Albufeira). The staff were very nice and greeted us every day with a smile and so friendly. Rooms cleaned and towels changed every day and soap provided in bathroom dispensers. Also there is now a 24 hour reception. This was the annexe to the Hotel California about 20 yards away and this is where the bars, restaurant and pool are situated and all guests at the Polana can use these. Having spoken to guests there the facilities were again excellent. Although we were on Bar Street we did not find the noise a problem once windows were shut. The air conditioning was excellent and there were english movies and news on the television. The staff even brought a bottle of bubbly up to the room for my 67th birthday on 7 July with a hug to go with it....fantastic!
There is live music at most bars and numerous restaurants. Albufeira itself is such a lovely place! The beach is 2 mins to the right and the square is 2mins to left. two streets up from square are restaurant bars which provide a very good english breakfast with drink for 4.5 euros. It is so pretty here and exceptionally clean. We normally travel around Spain but cant wait to return here to Albufeira.........we will definately return! To all the staff at the Polana....THANK YOU!!!
