“SLEEPLESS NIGHTS.....................”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

Stayed in room113,from morning to night to morning all you hear is the constant traffic noise car/lorry horns. The reason for this is because the appartment is at the front of the hotel, right next to mayor roundabout and road juction.
so if you book in at this hotel you take a chance as to which room you get,(if you get a poolside view room you have no problems).
Sun comes round about 5.30pm. Maid cleaned room every day/clean towels.limited tv channnels(but you don't come on holiday to watch tv).Make over in the bath room shower head bracket broken, so was shower curtain.
Reception staff ok, wi fi available down in lobby can buy card 5 euro for 1 hour /internet 1 computer 1 euro for 15 minute.
Pool and bar area ok. But the hotel was very noisey already mentioned about the traffic, but constant noise from other people especially the early hours of the morning which made sleeping almost impossible...................

Booked this trip as a last minute get away, and was little worried when i read some of the reviews on trip advisor, however there was no need to worry. The studio apartment we had was very spacious and well equipped. All very clean with daily maid service. The location was great, close enough to all the restaurants and bars, but not too close to be disturbed by noise, approx 10 mins walk to beach and main strip. Hotel staff were very friendly. Hotel bar was not open during our trip as it was out of season, however there are enough local bars close to hotel. We were able to use the indoor pool and jacuzzi at sister hotel which was 5 mins walk down the road. Very nice shopping mall 200 yards up the road with some lovely shops and eating places. We found lovely restaurant called Alfredos on the right on the road down to the beach, only small and not open in the day time, but well worth a visit, the sword fish was the nicest i have tasted, and staff were lovely and welcoming. Overall great short break.

Room Tip: Poolside room was very nice

Stayed at this apartment in April/May 2011 with my girlfriend. We only paid 200 quid each for the whole holiday (flight ,transfers and hotel) so for the price we couldn’t complain.
The hotel is not a 4* hotel in my opinion but it is a very good 3* hotel. The staff speak good English and are very helpful also rooms generally clean. BUT THE DOWNSIDES!!!!! The poolside bar wasn’t open until may the2nd which was a pain and wasn’t stated. The pool was being used as a bird bath as it was raining for a few days. Birds nest above door to poolside bar and obviously the birds mess ewwww not nice. The room was generally clean few bad points where little stains on curtains, outside light broke, no plug for the bath. All these are miner little problems there are no big problems with this hotel !!! I would defo go back.
Good location as supermarkets was just over the road or a shopping centre 100yards down the road. Also nearby the hotel is a mc donalds, pizza hut and kfc all within 2min walk. 100yards down the road was also a taxi ranch. The old town and beach is about a 15min walk away I would say ideal for most people but if u have trouble with walking not such a good idea all though a taxi only costs around 4 euros. Ask at reception for a map and how to get to the town and they will help.
I have been on a fair few cheap and cheerful holidays over the years and this has to be the best hotel I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: ask for pool view

We arrived expecting a 3 star hotel as 4 star generally equates to this, but feel this hotel is more 2 star in quality but has a few more facilities if they were open or could be used. We were very disappointed with the hotel, the beds were very small and the pillows hard and lumpy! The refurbished rooms consist of a paint job on the bathroom tiles of pink and bright blue, as for the shower you are unable to stand underneath it to shower as the head has no bracket for overhead use and also had no power. However there was always hot water for a bath. Three out of the five lights in our room did not work, the handy man did respond very quickly and all that was needed was the bulbs to be changed, we did show him the shower and how it was un-useable and he smiled, to work it needed to be totally replaced. When we arrived there was only 23 sun beds by the pool, for the first 3 days lots of people had to put there towels on the floor to sun bathe around the pool.There was lots of parasol bases around the pool, far more than sun beds but no umbrellas available for use, 3 days later 10 more sun beds appeared out of a store, but no umbrellas. There were still not enough sun beds and the appartments were no where near full. there was lots of people (children included) that suffered sun burn due to the lack of umbrellas and shade. The pool bar and restaurant was not opened at all during our stay, so know where within the hotel to buy an ice cream or drink by the pool.
This hotel/apartments are definitely not 4 * much closer to 2*, you get what you pay for, just do not pay much.

Room Tip: Do not stay here stay else where.

Just returned from a 10 day stay at the Alagoamar apartments with my husband. 1st time in Portugal. This place was supposedly refurbished 2 years ago. However a dont think a paint job and a hairdrier in the bathroom equates to a refurb as this is all that they seemed to have done. What was good-Quiet although we were on the pool side and not the street. Room was cleaned every day but bedding changed only once a week. Great location between old and new town, lovely view of the pool and the sea, huge supermarket 2 min away. What was bad-Grumpy receptionist on arrival ( we saved up all our questions for the man who came on in the evening as he was very helpful and nice), bar only open between 12-6pm every day and manned by very unhelpful staff. Beds were small and hard. You had to pay to use the safe in the room. not what you expect of a 4* place. This is definitely not a 4* establishment. 3 at a push. If you want a no frills place in a great location, this is the place. Dont expect anything else.

We were also greeted by the same rude receptionist at the last reviewer! The room itself was recently refurbished so looked lovely. The twin beds were tiny and rock hard however (I was with my partner so would have appreciated a double). Also the bathroom was overlooked in the refurbishment and was best described as grotty. The tiles were all stained and the shower was the worst ever. Went hot and cold all the time and has a grungey awful shower head. We were very thankful of a pool view room as the road out the front is the busiest road in portugal and very noisy. Location wise was the best in Albufeira, 10 mins walk from both the old town and the strip and 2 mins from the huge Modelo Supermarket. Definately not a 4* in the UK sense of the world but we got a good deal on the price from Thomas Cook so was ok.

On arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a very rude receptionist. The room was situated at the front at the hotel, it was therefore very noisy. The room was also in need of a good clean. Overall I do not feel this hotel met the 4* rating which they are currently supposed to be.
