dawn from newcastle
stayed all inc for 12 nights at beginning of august, family of 6 ranging from 5 to 71 years old. excellent pool ,good choice of food, spacious and clean rooms in block a. great location for the beach and only a 10 minute walk to the strip. only downside was that there were too many arrogant and obnoxios germans,and the hotel also let them have there own private pool as well!!!

Party of six (50's + 20's). All inclusive, flight by Easyjet.
Superb location, overlooking beach. Excellent pool & food. Always at least four choices for lunch and dinner.
Took out the speedy-booking on Easyjet for a cost of £5pp, well worth it as we were loaded first and obtained exit-row seats.
Downsides are the number of steps from the rooms to the restaurant (don't go if you have difficulty climbing steps, not very good disabled access).

Our main grumble was the practice of "reserving" pool-side loungers (would love to blame the Germans, but it was mostly the Brits who were doing it). I hate doing it, but if you didn't join in, you didn't get a sun-bed. Some right on the pool-side weren't used until late afternoon. The hotel management should enforce their own requests not to place towels on the loungers.

Overall, if you get up early and reserve your sun-bed you will have a geat time here.

We (4 girls) stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in mid July. We had 2 rooms in block B, 1 room was nice but the bath in the second room could have done with a good clean. The room was pretty standard although we didnt really want luxury as we didnt intend to spend much time there, we only needed a base and a comfortable bed in which to sleep - that's what we got. We spoke to other guests who werent very happy with there rooms, but they were staying there for 2 weeks so I guess they spent a lot more time in the room than we did.
The reception staff werent very helpful as they didnt give much advice on which activities and trip we could go on. The bar and restuarant staff however were VERY friendly and pleasant! A friend of mine left her purse in the resturant and the waiter came running out to return it to her. The restuarant was very clean and the service and food were great. We were on an all inclusive deal and were extrememly happy with the food.
The inside and outside pools were very clean although the outside pool was a little busy as expected. The views from the pool and restuarant were great.
The hotel is located right by the beach - literally a few steps away.
I would def recommend this hotel.
The nightlife is excellent - the location of the hotel is perfect for this. The hotel is near the beach and only about 5-10 mins from the nightlife!
If you decide to visit then ENJOY!!

My partner and l have just returned after a 10 day holiday from the auramar. we booked the holiday through 'going places' which cost us £550 each for 10 days 'all inclusive'.
The location of the hotel was excellent as it was set on a cliff right next to the beach giving us great views. access to the beach was down quite a few steep steps just outside the pool area. the strip was only a 5-10 min walk and was very lively at night (beware of some locals trying to sell 'hash'). there was lots of good bars + restaurants to choose from. we spent most nights on 'the strip' although we were all inclusive because we found the entertainment in the hotel very boring and the food was nice but very repetative.
The rooms was very basic but always kept clean by the cleaners who came everyday. our balcony did have a nice view of the sea if you looked around the tree outside our room.
we found that some of the staff were rude but the majority of the rest were fine if you spoke to them.
the pool was very clean + quite big + deep enough to swim.

overall we both really enjoyed our holiday and would return to this hotel if we ever wanted to go back to portugal

Went to the Auramar in April for my wedding anniversary , OH DEAR !, . After going to a Rui in Gran Caneria all inclusive for my honeymoon i thought it would be a good idea to do it again but somewhere else . The difference was unbelieveable . First off the hotel is so dated , the room was clean and generally ok but the noise from the corridor was very bad every noise was amplified , so like it or not you were up by 8 o"clock everyday . The bar staff were good when you got to know them a bit the rest looked really unhappy in their jobs . Before i mention the food i would like to say the location was excellent but because it was early in the year the weather wasn"t great . Now to the worst bit of the holiday THE FOOD , . The first night was great then that was it , most of it was tin food i would say , repetative and vile . We went out to eat a few times . My wife even found a piece of metal scourer in her food one night ! . I would say stay there , if nothing else is available , but dont eat there. Overall this experiance has put me off Portugal for good .
