Commanding view of the beach sitting on the balcony with a cold drink and the warm breeze. Does not get any better than this. Absolutely one of a kind spot, that you will remember for years to come. Food is excellent and fresh local produce.

Looking for that elusive late summer sunshine. Someone suggested the Algarve. A little web searching, used TripAdvisor and asked friends. We settled on Albufeira. Now, where to stay. The stand out location was Sol e Mar. Right on the beach, old town, can't get better than that. Best rate? Direct with the hotel. A 25% deposit direct with the hotel. Balance on check in. Sorted. We chose the B & B offering. On arrival we were greeted at the minimalist reception, well two modern desk's with computers. Easy check in, explanation of the restaurant and bars, etc. Times for breakfast. Excellent staff. Our room was on the second floor, access by RF proximity card. Wow modern, or what. What greeted us was, probably, the best resort hotel bedroom I have ever stayed in, and I've been in quite a few in my 50 plus years. Balcony over looking the beach. Excellent sound proofing from the balcony doors. Black out curtains. A/C and a mini fridge. The bathroom would not be out of place in a luxury apartment. Fantastic shower and a good selection of bathroom toiletries. In room safe, and no cost for the safe or A/C. Beds extremely comfortable, with extra pillows, blanket or additional duvet if you get that cold. Buffet breakfast was definitely the best I have ever had. No dried out scrabbled eggs, perfect fried eggs, even at 10am. Fantastic selection of fresh fruit, 'canned fruit' ,meats, cheese, bacon, beans. You name it, it was fresh. Staff uber friendly and the staff remembered my room on day 2. Good entertainment in the evening, and a great cocktail barman. The beach side bars were well staffed and very good. Already planning go back in 2020. I thoroughly recommend this hotel

Clean, modern hotel with free safe, air con, t.v & mini fridge. Fantastic sea views from a fairly private balcony. All staff were friendly & helpful. We arrived a few hours before check-in so our room was not ready; however reception staff sourced another room that was available within 10 mins of us arriving. Evening entertainment was limited & quite dated; however we did enjoy listening to the electric organ being played & chart songs being sang after our evening meal & before hitting the main square that is only a few minutes walk away. Food was nice. Meals were of a buffett style with a reasonable choice each evening. My husband & I loved the hotel & it’s location was second to none in Albufeira. Vejo você ano que ven (see you next year!)

The staff are brilliant and the hotel very friendly. Our room was on level one number 107 right above the bars and restaurants which got very noisy at Times we could we could hear all the going on at any time of day. The food in the restaurant never varied and the bacon was awful at breakfast at dinner pork seemed to be the main dish with endless salads and no English tea. Regards Robet & Doreen Fairmam .
