Reviewed April 16, 2013

Great location especailly for couples, me and my boyfreind went for a few days in march, found the night life good but can imagine in peak season its very busy.
Hotel was lovely and clean, the cleaners were very nice and welcoming and we had a apartment room, very spacey and quite modern.
Recommend you go visit the old town, it has some really good traditional restaurants and nice beach.

stayed at these apartments for 10 days from 18 march, they are very very clean and the cleaners came in every day and where lovely ladies as i was ill from early in the holiday ( nothing to do with hotel) and was ill until we left the cleaners where asking me how i was and was i better. apts are in a very good position near to supermarkets and bars, plenty of sun loungers if you get the sun, try to get a room at the back overlooking the pool the only thing is the balcony on the upstairs rooms is very small with no room for a table just two small folding chairs, the only thing i would really have liked is some english t v as i was ill and could not go out, you only get news from sky and bbc but you do get free wi fi in the rooms, the beds are very comfy showers good micro wave 2 ring hub the only thing kitchen could have done with was a dish drainer and they don't supply tea towels also no toaster.

Room Tip: room at back overlooking pool

Stayed at this hotel in March 2013. The hotel has rooms and apartments and we stayed in the apartments. It had a balcony with two metal chairs and a plastic table that had seen better days, but fulfilled our needs. The apartment had a small kitchenette that was adequate for a couple. The bedroom was quite large with plenty of storage. The bathroom was clean and tidy with a shower above the bath which was billed as a power shower but was actually a mixer tap with showerhose, with a showerhead that was not original and which needed a descale and the screen didn't fit the bath properly so water leaked out onto the floor. (I have visited so many hotels with this problem that I now take it in my stride - why oh why cannot hotels fix this simple problem is beyond me!!). The lounge was quite large with a sofa and a dining area and a TV that, supposedly, had satellite TV but only had 14 channels of the usual foreign stations plus BBC News and Sky News. So, overall it was a nice apartment, clean, tidy and roomy. The negative aspects really are the usual things you find with hotels/apartments of this type and didn't really detract from our holiday. The hotel had free wifi, a bar/restaurant which provided breakfast included in price and had about 4 tv screens showing football & other sports.

It was a late late booking through lastminute.com (literally had 4 hours to get to airport to catch flight) and actually cost more than if we had gone direct which is what I would recommend one does if booking out of season as we could have saved approx £100. This early in the season hotels will do a deal and in fact we spoke with another couple in the hotel next door who had done exactly that and got 20% of the room rate and said every year they go to Portugal and get a cheap flight and then negotiate a good deal with the many choices of hotels.

A good tip, if you have time is to look hte hotel up online, then ring them direct and ask about airport transfers/pickup as getting a taxi from Faro airport is now so expensive that it actually cost over twice as much as the hotel minibus!

After reading many reviews on here, booked these apartments and was not disappointed. The one bedroom apartment was very roomy everything modern and clean and the photos that other travellers put on were very true to the place. It had a lovely pool area but not quite warm enough to use it, rooms have TV with a couple of English news channels as we had a couple of days rain we made use of. Staff very friendly and helpful, towels were changed every day. There is an air cond/ heater unit in the lounge and bedroom, which you have the remote to regulate, this was very useful.
Apartments situated only 5 mins walk from the strip but far enough away there was no disturbance. We walked to the old town a couple of times it took about 30-40 mins well worth a trip it has not changed since I was there in 2003 and very atmospheric a lovely little town. Overall we had some lovely meals out and a relaxing time, I've travelled quite a bit and have to say the Portuguese people are some of the nicest that I have come across, customer service was very good, and a smile makes all the difference, would recommend.

Room Tip: All the one bed apartments have a pool view.

My wife and i stayed for a week from the 20-27 march this year,like most of the reviews there s not a bad word to say about the hotel/apartments,we stayed in an apartment and could not the believe how nice it was.....fully equipped Apartment for everything you need for your stay.

The strip is about a good Ten minute walk or more depending how fast you walk,its a typical holiday strip Bars/restaurants ect.But i would Personally also try the old town out which is even better for meals and buying presents.Staff at the Hotel were fantastic and very help full,as in phoning taxis for you and information,i spent some days in the bar "like you do"and the staff came over kind and help full and freindly to,a big thank you to Roy who works as bar man there for giving me the lowdown on the the "Sporting Lisbon" owner and a big freindly smile to which includes most of the staff.The apartments also were looked after as in cleaning and towel changing and the staff there worked hard,,all i would say if you have fault with this Hotel well there must be something wrong with you as it was perfect for everything location/service/staff.

Thank you to all at the Hotel Topazio/Apartments for making our Holiday and good one and also a happy one to....Dean xxxxx

Booked after reading trip advisor report, not dissappointed.......friendly staff, no rip off,s......bar snacks good. We booked B and B...........well worth it, everything made fresh and good choice... Hotel itself is spotless, with good size rooms, tv,air con, mini fridge, 4 pc bathroom and huge beds.
We asked to see self catering...one bed apts which were amazing, all with views...
Would book again as central located..........This is a quiet, relaxing, smaller hotel, ideal for all......

Additional........consider cheaper half day trips to Faro,Portimao, Loule (8/10 euro pick up and drop off)..........as local buses would cost as much as every local bus goes to bus station( approx 1.5 euro) to change for bus journeys outwith Albuferia.....Walk to "Strip" 5 mins....beach 10mins....old town 30mins.

Found in old town, many good eating places, but don,t mention 3 euro cover charge on bill!!!

Room Tip: A few rooms with street view, nightclub opposite(only one,in general, quiet location) although this...

I think I was expecting a lot more due to previous reviews however this was a nice hotel good value!
Be warned if checking out at early time surprisingly when asking for deposit back from security he suddenly has little grasp of English! We never got ours back!
The hotel does say cleaners between 9-6 ours were always after 3! They didn't change sheets or the floor during the stay! The apartment are large and have well equipped kitchen!
Resort was very quiet midweek!
We uses resort hoppa for transfer who were very reliable!
The wild and co restaurant surprisingly nice! A little dearer than else were but worth it!
