We stayed at the Brisa Sol for 2 weeks in July and had a studio apartment. It was kept very cleaned and had a lovely kitchen area which was well stocked. Unfortunately our room had a small balcony which overlooked the car park and the sun was only on the balcony from 7am until 9am. We didn't manage to get sun beds at the pool for the whole of the first week as we did not queue to 'run the gauntlet' every day. The sunbed situation is a real problem at this hotel and although there are signs saying they should not be reserved they were covered in towels by 9.05am every day. In the second week we had to queue along the corridor and up the stairs at 8:45am each morning to be able to get round the pool and enjoy the experience. What we noticed and were shocked at was the number of people who placed their towels on the sunbeds then disappeared, some not returning until after lunchtime. This stops others from enjoying this area but the management did nothing about it.
There is a lovely cake shop attached to the hotel-well worth a visit, and a handy supermarket right next door. The hotel is quite noisy at night along the corridors as the sounds echo, and as our room was next to the carpark and road we also had those disturbances. It would definitely be worth checking whether a pool view room is available.
The old town has a fabulous beach and some great restaurants. It's a good place for a wander with a central square to sit and people watch. This was our third visit to Albufeira but I don't feel that we would stay at this hotel again. It was very clean but the negative issues need addressing to allow others more enjoyment, and they need to stop the terrible 'run and throw' culture that's developed at the pool.
