We have stayed here 3 years in a row as the location is really good. The lifts are small and the pool is small but both do the job! There is a bar but it is open very short time periods. (I since discovered they would lose a 'star' if they don't have a bar - so it's physically there...

I have just read a lot of bad reviews about this little Vila. We return every year with the girls. Aged between 45 and 60. It is not trendy or very up to date. It's an old Vila !!!!! And it's very cheap to stay !!!!! The balconys are small. Every room we have ever stayed in has been spotless....

You get what you pay for at this hotel. Basic, clean & near to centre of Albufeira Old Town. My friends & I stayed for 3 nights & it was fine. Had room only. Ate breakfast over the road at Eddy's Bar. Small swimming pool with a few sun beds. We were 3 adults , so had 2 rooms with...

Excellent location very close to the beach and near Albufeira old town, but that is basically it. In my opinion, the rooms are okay if staying only for a couple of days (we stayed there for a weekend), but they do have a great view if facing the city (pool side). If facing the street next to the hotel, not...

This was quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! The lifts are tiny fitting 2 normal size adults and a carry on case! If your claustrophobic you do not want to use these lifts. The whole place smells damp and old and just not very inviting at all! We were given a room on the 5th floor...

Starting with the positive like others have mentioned it is ideal location for all. It is a 5 minute walk down into the old town and not much longer down too the beautiful beaches. As for the hotel itself it was horrible. I arrived late the first night (just after 11pm) and was given the keys without drama and headed...

We went in the school holidays and were delighted with our poolside room. All as you would like for a no nonsense bed and breakfast type holiday. Breakfast was buffet style and perfectly acceptable. The hotel is well placed for a stroll downhill to the beach and restaurants. We would certainly go back.
