Arrived in the hotel and were given our keys when we got to the room I was in shock . A family of 4 had 1 tiny area to live in. Our beds were separated from our children's with a fabric curtain . The beds were so small my husbands legs were out the bottom and they were so narrow... More

....exactly what we got. A Deluxe room with a sea - pool view. We stayed in room 206 between 13th and 23rd August. Just home now. It's our first stay at this hotel but we know the area well.

I stayed here for 4 nights in August 2016 in a Superior 1 Bedroom Apartment. The interior of the apartment and the facilities inside the apartment were absolutely first class. The room was clean and well presented, with a good deal of available space and a high quality TV broadcasting UK channels (great for watching the Olympics in the evening).... More

This was our 4th visit to Albufeira in 5 years and by far the worst hotel. We had walked past the hotel previously and seen the 4 Star sign. Om arriving we were told that the hotel required either a credit card or 100 euros deposit In case of damages. In 16 years of taking our family on holiday this... More

Very dissapointed, way below our expectations considering its cost. Very run down and tired looking. We stayed for a week and only got our room serviced twice. The pool isn't clean and we never saw any body maintain it ever. Definitely not a 4star hotel

We were deeply disappointed with this hotel. Its very 50's style, we did a RCI Resort exchange and when we booked it the classification was Gold resort its since been reduced to Silver however its not even worthy of this. The rooms are old and run down however they are clean. The beds are hard and the pillows lumpy. The... More

The staff in the Malabar Restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The food as an all inclusive traveller was ok but their hands are tied as they have to cook what they are told to cook by the hotel. They are an Indian restaurant and their Indian food is fantastic.
