we stayed here because of location to oldtown, apartments have great character, very spacious and amazing sea and old town views.all one bed apartments have either full or side sea views. we had side sea view and it was amazing. approx 7 minutes walk to the escalators which bring you to the beach and oldtown. i would not recommend these apts to families as there are no entertainment facilities or proper bar or snackbar facilities. they are purely for accomadation purposes only, which suited our needs. the reception staff were very friendly. the higher the floor the better the view, four floors in total. only major drawback was no air con.

Have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Almar with my boyfriend. All in all this was a lovely place to stay, great location (short walk to the Old Town), nice big one bedroom apartment, gorgeous pool/sea view (requested prior to arrival), lovely quiet and refreshing pool area - great for a dip on a hot day! Staff were also very welcoming and accomodating!
Own only issue with this hotel was that there was no air con OR ceiling fan in any part of the apartment. This meant that it was not particularly pleasant getting ready in the evenings and also after walking in from a beach/pool day already hot, only to be met by a wall of heat in your apartment! Beds also very hard, but this is common in that part of the world, however due to the beds and lack of air we ended up sleeping on the sofa's on the floor of the living room with the balcony doors open! Which was wonderfully breezy in comparison!
Other than this I'd really recommend this hotel, great for couples and families alike - wonderful holiday in Albuferia! :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view and on check in enquire about fans to rent! (we did this but they had none available!)

Stayed here in April 2012. Apartments are a bit dated but in good location and view from balcony is amazing. Hotel was quiet and pool was cold, but it was only April. Kitchen is fine and has enough amenities for a comfortable stay. Would recommend it

The Almar apartments are in a quiet location close enough to walk to the beach, old town and supermarket. In a quiet location, friendly staff, from what we saw of them. No bar staff, and the bar didn't seem to be used very much. Your had to get the reception staff to serve you drinks. Only went there once and there was no one only us and one other man there.
Rooms are lovely, and cleaned regularly. Pool cold, and quiet, no one seems to stay around the pool, at no stage was it ever busy.
Didn't have food at all so can't comment.

Beautiful view of Albeufiera from the rooms.
Hotel would be suitable for couples looking for a quite break away, but not for those with walking difficulties

I stayed in the Almar for 1 week with my boyfriend. We arrived early and were very surprised that our room were ready for us. We stayed in a studio and were a bit worried about it being small but were very pleasantly surprised when we walked into a very spacious room. Although the bathrooms could be revamped they are still spacious with a huge mirror, the hotel also provided me with a hairdryer when I forgot to bring my own.

Again, I was worried that the lack of air conditioning would be a problem but it really wasn't an issue since the evenings are quite chilly and the rooms stay cool during the daytime. The pool was fabulous and perfect for what we needed although we did not use it too much. There was never a problem getting a sun lounger and there was a lovely garden for sunbathing.

The best thing about these apartments has to be the location, literally 10 mins walk to the heart of the old town and the beach. We witnessed HUGE queues for taxi's in the Old Town at the end of every day so we were thankful to be so close. The apartments are also very close to a large supermarket and the little train that brings you to The Strip if that is more your thing. Even though we are in our early twenties we still preferred the Old Town as there was far more to see and do there in the evening.

All in all I was extremely pleased with the Almar, having seen a lot of the otters accommodation on offer for the same price range it is by far the best. In fact, just for its perfect location I would go as far as to say its one of the best places to stay in the whole of Albuferia.

Room Tip: Sea-view if you can get it!
