We have just returned from our second stay at this excellent hotel. We arrived at the hotel in mid afternoon having transferred by taxi from the airport. The service at the hotel is first class starting with our warm welcome from Nelson on Reception to the extremely friendly Maria on the Housekeeping Team to the excellent Restaurant and Bar service staff. Our room was a side sea-view room on the second floor which afforded very good views of the well maintained grounds on of the sea itself. Our room had ample storage and hanging space for our stay. The beds are fairly firm and a call to reception will provide you with mattress toppers for the beds and additionally rubber bath mats if required. These where delivered to our room promptly. The location of the hotel is very good with easy access by bus to either Albufeira, Vilamoura and Faro.
The fare to Albufeira costs Euro 2.20, Vilamoura Euro 3.25 and Faro Euro 4.50. Timetables are also available from reception. The hotel reception offers a superb selection each evening which will suit everyones tastes. We pre-arranged transfers from the airport with Yellowfishtransfers.com who charged 60 Euro for the return fare. They kept us fully informed by email of all arrangements and can not recommend them highly enough. They will be our choice of transfer every time we make individual arrangements to travel here.
Our stay at the Riu Palace Algarve fully met our expectations once again and can highly recommend this hotel.
