The apartment is clean and well furnished. Beds comfortable. The kitchen area could be a little better equipped. As mentioned previously, the bathroom is very small (shower and no bath).
The complex is not large (45 apartments I think) - but it has a very nice pool area within pretty gardens and lovely tiled pictures on the exterior walls. It is rather too far to walk to the beach or the strip/old town - but that did not matter since we had a hire car. I understand the bus service is quite convenient.
We would certainly consider staying here again when we next visit the Algarve. If you like live rock/blues music like us - go to seen Bacal Hendrix at the Vertigo bar in the Square at the Old Town.

Would i go there again i think not !!!!!! the room we were given was room 11 it was like a haunted ballroom , the room was massive , but the bathroom was soooo small and the shower was a joke , the beds were like sleeping on an ironing board, and we were given a superior room !!!!!!!! all because it had one of only two on the whole complex ,AIR CONDITIONING ,but we needed it because it was quite chilly when we went .also they charged you 50 euro for the remote refunded at end of your holiday , whats that all about , i would understand 20 euro but 50 !!!!and 20 for the remote for the tele also refunded which was a waste of time , i do not know what people expect form their holidays because everyone is different ,last but not least do not buy any water from them as its 2 euros for a bottle,(in the supermarket it was 80 cents) and 2 euro for them to call a taxi !!!!!

Had a lovely week here, just far enough away to be close enough. If you like to have your internet the reception is not great in the rooms but only 5eu for the lenghth of your holiday. Local bus to the Strip every 30 mins which also takes you to the Old Town and Lidl's for your shopping.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice

Booked here with Hotels4u after reading good reviews on trip advisor , if your looking for 4-5 star youll be dissapointed its very basic our studio was very small although the superia ones where quite roomy , walls were very thin could hear next door neighbour snoring would have been worse if there was noisy kids next door . it was about a 15 min walk to strip and bus by roundabout at the top of the road runs regular to old town , we found it quite a treck to the beach through quintas de balaia think its easier to go past the strip but we didnt get , old town is lovley and worth a visit strip nothing special we liked the american diner which seemed very popular , the locals were very nice , and staff at balaia sol were very nice and helpful , the complex was small, at this time of year very quiet but i liked that and was very clean if i go back to albufiera id like to be nearer to beach , but overall enjoyed our stay not the ritz but clean and friendly , the cocktails were lovley and cheaper than on the strip the pool bar does snacks and small meals and there,s a mini market on quintas de balaia , although better supermarket on strip . Overall not a bad holiday

Clean tidy rooms
friendly staff
nice pool, could do with more umbrellas for fair skin like mine!!!!
a good walk into the new town even further to old town.
hotel offers shuttle into albufeira for a small fee.
taxis are cheap about 4/5 euro to get back.
Limited parking available, tight squeeze! overall I enjoyed my stay!
