Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Just back from a ten day stay at solaqua as a family of 4.these are great apartments we had a pool view ground floor apartment which was very clean and modern with helpful staff ,perfect location 10/15 mins old town or 15/20 mins other direction to the strip , mondelo shopping centre 2 mins from the door with a big supermarket with everything you would need for self catering . Entertainment on a few days or evenings would have been good and the only thing lacking in these apartments but other than that I would stay in solaqua again

Apartments were clean and tidy, towels changed every day and public indoor areas were kept clean too but pool area could do with a little sweep and mop. Air con in both lounge and bedroom which is a bonus and you could even sleep through! We were checked in straight away even though we arrived early. Great indoor pool and Jacuzzi, plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance and only 15 min walk from the old town and 4 euro taxi back. Breakfast was awful, very basic, don't go B&B, opt for room only and go out as there's plenty about or self cater as great little kitchen. Definitely not a 4 star, more like a 3. We only stayed for the weekend but I wouldn't like to stay for a fortnight. Female receptionist was very rude and unhelpful but all other staff were great. Overall, cheap and cheerful.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view.

We recently stayed in Solaqua Apts and were delighted with it! We arrived at 9am to the hotel, check in is usually 2pm but as our room was ready they checked us straight away. We were surprised with how clean and modern the rooms were, the kitchen was spotless, comfy beds, clean towels everyday and lovely balcony overlooking the pool. Plenty of sun loungers by the pool, and there is also an indoor pool and Jacuzzi. There is a huge supermarket up the street, the old town is a 10-15mins walk away, new town(the strip) is around the same. Taxis only €4-5. Fantastic stay overall.

We have just returned from a four night stay in these apartments. The room was excellent we had a pool view room on the ground floor. The room has air conditioning, was very clean, the towels were changed daily, a hair dryer was also provided in the bathroom.

The staff are very friendly and are also very helpful. The apartments are in the prefect location, a ten minute walk to the beach and old town, which has lovely restaurants and lots of shops. If you go the opposite way it is about a twenty minute walk to the strip, which also has plenty of shops, restaurants and bars, a good place to go in the evening. There is a supermarket at the top of the street which sells everything and there is also a shopping centre very close to the apartments.

The apartments have an outdoor pool which always have plenty of sun loungers available. They also have an indoor pool and jacuzzi on the lower level.

Will definitely be returning in the future!!!!

Room Tip: Would recommend the reception level with a pool view room.

This is a great hotel, one of the nicest rooms I've stayed in for a while, really clean and tidy, bathrooms are great and well lit, I don't ask for a lot when I'm away just the little things that make my stay as stress free as possible! hair dryer in the bathroom brill, plenty of plugs and a near full length mirror, excellent, Room to put your toiletries on the side of the bath even better, pool view..perfect. As the other reviews have said there is a asda size supermarket at the top of the road where you can buy anything! Food down in the old town was really nice, 15 minute walk down €3.90 taxi flat rate back up! try steak on a stone if you'd like something a little different! if you have children or struggle with the food then McDonald's and Kentucky are across the road! Indoor pool is lovely and warm we took our twin grandsons in as the main pool was a little nippy for them.

Would definitely return to Albufeira and the Sol Aqua Thanks to all the staff who were very helpful
