Just got back from staying in the Solaqua hotel. We stayed in a self catering studio. The hotel has its good points but also some not so good.. The reception staff were excellent and extremely helpful. They gave us good directions to different places and also advise about buses, markets and good retaurants. We had a problem with our toilet and we reported it and within an hour a chap came and sorted it. Unfortunately the problem continued after a couple of days and in all we reported it 4 times. They were very concerned and tried to sort it out but I really think it needed a plumber. The studio was ill equipped for self catering compared to other 4 star hotels we have stayed in in the Algarve. The bathroom was very big and the shower good. The maids changed the towels every day and the bed linen once during a two week stay. Yes there is a lack of umbrellas and the childrens pool is extremely tiny. Also very little in the way of equipment for small kids. There did not appear to be any evening entertainment or kids clubs. We asked for a quiet room but we got put in a room next to the kitchen and right next to the snack bar. Very noisy at times especially at washing up times (9pm) and music from speakers outside snack bar which often went on till 11pm. If they put you in room 010 please ask to be moved. On the plus side, there is a huge supermarket very near the hotel. You can use the air conditioning as much as you like. The beaches are within 15mins and the tourist train will take you to Fishermans beach and the strip. Don't be put off by some of the reviews but do not expect 4 star accomodation. We spoke to quite a few guests who agreed with our views.
