This was our second visit to Hotel Alte and left us a little disappointed. Once again the staff were excellent but the management were poor. We ordered a fridge in both rooms, important for me as I am a diabetic and need to keep my insulin cool, but arrived to find no fridges. They managed to get one but it... More

Great get away location. Such a shame the hotel is stuck in the 1970's. Hardly anything on the breakfast table this morning by 0.930 but then the kitchen managed to scramble 3 eggs between the 8 or 9 people waiting.

Hidden away up in the countryside just outside Alte stands the Alte Hotel. Although the decor leaves a bit to be desired, stick with it for the food. They serve a Sunday special of a starter and a main for €10 - the main when we were there was Javali (wild boar stew). Now the secret is out I hope... More

I have just returned from a week at the Alte Hotel on a half board basis. The prices at this time of year are incredibly cheap and hence the stay provided excellent value for money. Would I return – yes definitely, any criticisms in this report should not detract from that fact. The Hotel has about 35 rooms, and while... More

My brother and I were walking the Via Algarviana. The Alte Hotel is situated right next to the trail (the hotel backyard has a direct connection with the trail) and is therefor a logical place to stay along the trail. The hotel is large, yet cosy, but a bit dated. When we arrived (in february) the hotel seemed to be... More

Stayed for just one night after a day at Alte Carnival. The hotel is a little dated but it is very clean and the staff are lovely. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day with showers so we didn't get to see the lovely views on a sunny day but you can't book the weather! It was perfect for enjoying a... More

Very nice staff, brought me food on trays to my room when I was taken ill for exemple.Beautiful view and pittoresque village. Unfortunately I had to stay on my room but my husband explored the golfcourses in the surroundings. Priceworth.

I'm not sure what I can add to all the other rave reviews about the staff, the location, the restaurant, the grounds and the pool. All were fabulous! Everyone seemed to descend upon the restaurant for dinner at the same time (around 8:00-8:30pm, if I remember correctly), so be prepared to wait for your food or come earlier. Some wait... More

If you are looking for a place to chill out and relax, than this is the place. Has a fantastic view of the mountains of Algarve, great lodging, outstanding staff and great food. A must go for holidays in Algarve. Note: Alte is not a beach village, the nearedt beach is in Albufeira, about 30 minutes driving through mountain roads.... More

I have stayed at this hotel in September every year for the last 4 or 5 years. it is wonderfully located to act as a central point for travelling or exploring around Portugal, but best if you have your own transport. As other reviewers have said there is a hill down to the village where there are a few curio... More
