Reviewed October 3, 2011

just back from topazio hotel,arrived on my own to this hotel which was no problem as everyone you met was very friendly,on being shown to my room the first thing that hits you was the modern decor. the room i had was really spacious and modern two really large beds pushed together well kept furniture and a spacious balcony,air con was brilliant and free.the pool area is great plenty of sunbeds and a nice pool the surrounding area about the pool are well kept .the pool bar is cheap and camilla does her best.when you book this hotel and read reviews abut the kiss club over the road dont moan as you know its there,sports bar across the road is great,turn right out of hotel to get to beach about ten minutes walk and follow beach signs.if you turn left out of the hoteland walk up the small hill for300 yards the first restraunt next to the supermarket serves great food and is very cheap walk past this restaraunt and turn right at junction and this is the start of the strip,here you will find anything you want to eat and drink at many different prices,wander away from the strip and many restraunts are very cheap and worth a visit try the blue sky restaraunt for avery large t bone steak you wont be dissapointed.the old town is a must to visit plenty to do and see.go and enjoy yourself in albuferia.

Room Tip: rear rooms or apartments are the best

This is the third time have visited the hotel in the last 2 years, as always excellent value for money with everything on the doorstep... stayed in the main hotel rooms, there are also apartments on the other side of the pool area.... which as long as you don't get a room at the front you don't hear any noise from the club over the road....the hotel offers a ideal location for all of Albuferia, with restaurants within 5/10 mins walking distance and the beach about 10 mins stroll away...the strip with all the shops and bars and the stop for the tourist train to take you into the old town....only down side is the pool bar only serves drinks not bar snacks... so you have to go out for food during the day... but other than that... ideal.

For the price we paid the hotel was excellent. Good facilities, great location, lovely staff. 2 minutes to the strip, 5 minutes from the beach, 15 minutes to the old town. Very clean and good sized rooms, very nice bathroom with great shower. We were a bit stupid and didn't realise that the room we booked was room only so no kettle/cooking facilities. All we needed to do to get that much needed morning cuppa was ask for a kettle at reception and they bought one up to use with cups, saucers and spoons within 5 minutes with a smile. Staff willing to help in any way throughout our 8 day stay. Only negative was that the pool bar closed at 7pm and balcony was small and wet due to leaking air con. Just to clarify that the hotel is situated opposite a night club, however we had our doors shut and the air con on and did not hear a peep!! Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Hotel itself was very nice and the staff lovely but it is has no atmosphere , the rooms are spotless and very spacious. Breakfast at the sister hotel is awful, some mornings we went and there was hardly any food left even though the resteraunt was never busy...when i asked for some bacon they brought out 3 slices for me and my husband to share.... avoid it if you can.
The supermarket across the road was pathetic, hardly any stock and very expensive.
Avoid room 314 as this is directly facing the Kiss nightclub , we were told by one of the receptionists that it was only open at the weekend, it was open every night.
Although this review sounds very negitive the hotel has a lot of good points, although i would not recommend b&b.

Room Tip: Avoid room 314 at all cost as it is directly facing Kiss nightclub and very very noisey, opens at 2...

Stayed on a B & B basis. Room was nice free Air Cond, beds to singles pushed together didnt bother us.
Only thing not right was the cleaners came to clean your rooms at very odd times 6.00pm.
KISS Club across the road, didnt hear a thing from them.
5 min walk from Strip, beach a 5-10 min walk, old town 20min or €3.90 taxi ride away.

The bad news,
Just back from 1 week staying in the Topazio. Had an awful 1st night- our fault! could not find a switch to turn on the air conditioning so left balcony doors open. Night club across the road opened at 2am and finished at 7am. Really noisey, young people shouting at the top of their voices all night. needless to say, very little sleep! Then John's burger bar opened at around 5am and this encouraged the night clubbers to congregate longer. Next morning we found the remote control for the air conditioning,were able to close balcony doors and sleep at night! When we got up in the mornings the revellers were on their way home and from our room we saw people urinate in the street- Both male and female!!!
Breakfast in the sister hotel next door was not great. Food tasteless! we brought down our own coffee as theirs was horrible.
The walk back from the nearest beach was all uphill and difficult to negotiate in the heat of the afternoon.

The good news
Very clean hotel- rooms comfortable. We brought our own kettle- no tea coffee making facilities. Flat screen Tv with a few english speaking channels. Pool area comfortable, plenty of sun chairs. Happy hour at lunch time and from 5-7pm. Wine 1 euro and small beer 1 euro duringthat time. No food served in the hotel at all- just crisps and ice-crams from the pool bar.
Location was good. 5 minutes from strip and bus stop which goes into the old town (1.2 euro one way). There is also a tourist train which runs all day until mid night 4 euro , unlimited use in 24hours.Tip- for a good meal go to a portugese restaurant- we ate on the strip a couple of times and it wasnt great, then went to some of the top 10 recommended by trip advisor and had beautiful meals


































The good
Very clean hotel, rooms comfortable, beds a bit on the hard side.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms at the front of the hotel

The hotel is not big. There are two big buildings and few small cottages. We stayed in an apartment with kitchen. A building with apartments is located farther from the street then the main building. It is good, because you don't hear the noise from the KISS club. I really don't know whether the noise from this club was or not :) But the disco was every nigth. So if you want to sleep in quiet take an appartment instead of a hotel room.

There are few cafes near the Topazio and one good restaurant just on the other side of the street.

The beach is in the 7 minutes walking distance. There is a free car parking at the street near the hotel.

The most attractive in Topazio was the price of our apartment. It was very cheap to stay there. I very like Topazio.
