“Very Good value for money”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We had a great time in Portugal this October, me my husband and two couples. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the rooms cleaned and towels changed every day. We stopped in a 1 bed apartment and it was huge. The kitchen was well equipped but we didn't use anything apart from the kettle as we didn't do any cooking in there. We had breakfast on one morning which was a buffet and there is plenty to choose from for €6 but the downfall was that the dishes holding the bacon sausage and beans were quite small so they had to be filled up often and it took quite a while to bring them back. The pool is large but it was freezing so didn't go in more than once, and the sunbathing area is very good although not sure it would accommodate a full hotel in the height of summer as the hotel is very big. The location is between the new and old town, the old town been a 10 minute walk away and the new a good 15 minutes away. There is a massive supermarket located at the top of the street which has everything that you could need. The bar was open from 10.30 til 8pm serving drinks and snacks, the toasties and salads were excellent,but the burger was a bit iffy! and disappointed that it was not open after 8pm. We came back early one night thinking that there would be a bar open outside but there is nothing nearby open and would have been nice to relax in the bar. .

Room Tip: We asked for a pool view but didn't get one, we were on the street side which are overlooked by...

Just back from here and it was a great holiday hotel was spacious and clean the maid came every day and gave fresh towels the pool was good size , my only quip with this hotel was that the hotel bar closes at eight which is quite early and there is no hotel entertainment especially on those rainy days and nights when you have children other then that this was an excellent hotel about fifteen min walk from both towns or five euro in a taxi ✌would defo return

Was a bit nervous considering the price paid but was very pleasantly surprised. Everywhere was clean and the room was cleaned every day. Good bathroom, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and the furniture was fairly modern. Pool area was good and great little pool for kids with various water toys presumably left by other guests. The hotel was apparently full but we had no problem finding empty sunbeds for 4. Old town was approx. 15 minute walk with plenty of choice of restaurants and bars. Shopping centre and large supermarket just at the end of the road so really handy.

All in all a very good apartment hotel not too far away from the old town and a good price. No wonderful views or stunning surroundings but a good place to stay. Would return.

We just got back from a 5day cheap break the solaqua is in a good location for the shops and places to eat we liked the clay oven exelent. We wear there to meet friends for a weding so never used the pool but looked nice. Are room was at the front of the hotel to the left of hotel entrance secon floor it was OK for us but if i was staying for two weeks would go for a pool view. can recomened for a good break if you get the price right.

Room Tip: Pool view is best

We stayed at the Solaqua Apartments for a week. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful from check in to check out.
The apartment it self was clean and well equipped with Fresh towels everyday.
The pool area had a good amount of loungers and parasols .
Location is perfect 2 minutes walk to the supermarket 20 minutes to the Old Town.
Overall great holiday

Stayed here first week of sept. The pool is not overly large but big enough for the amount if guests. U need to be up early for a sun bed though. 15 min walk to new and old town but worth a visit to both. Great huge supermarket almost next door open till 11 at nite and mcdonalds and KFC and Chinese all local. Def recommended
