Hotel Mirachoro Albufeira
Ranked #98 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Arrived with 12 girls for a hen party- Rooms very spacious, Clean and all apartments had views of the pool had all Kitchen facilities Microwave, Kettle,toaster ( not that we needed these ) and a fridge/Freezer :) .. the hotel is located in the New part of Albuferia , near supermarkets,it is about a 10-25 min walk to the strip - we arrived on a thursday night and not that many bars/restuarants were open, Half way down the strip you can get a train to the Old Town which is gorgeous and brilliant night life, it is only 3.50Euro for a day return.

Would definately recommend this hotel for any Stag and Hen Parties there was 3 there when we arrived- Would NOT reccomend this hotel for Families.

The Staff -- Reception staff were soooo Rude !! the 1 lad who was on his own attending the bar and cafe he was brilliant. ( they should emply more staff with better customer service)

Room Tip: High Floor :) we were in 406 was lovely

like others i was concerned about the noise but it wasn't bad at all,yes there was a lot of lad/girl groups but all was just their for a good time,swimming pool was enpty for families until early afternoon but we used the swimming pool across the road great place to chill with 18 hole pitch n putt loads of space,the rooms are very spacious and the cleanliness of the hotel was second to none there is not a lot for younger children to do but as mine was 16,13 lads all they needed was a pool the staff are very friendly and helpful it was our first time in portugal and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: if travelling with a family i would go to the top floor as it is quieter there are lifts so getting...

Just got back from these apartments with 7 friends and we loved this hotel, full of younger people aged 17-25 and the odd family which seemed a bit Orkward, would not recommend taking young children or older people as the hotel is fun and lively! Especially at night..... Maids cleaned rooms every other day and changed towels very good service overall great holiday would go back !

just got back from these apartments and like other people i was quite worried after reading the reviews and whilst i probably wouldn't go back to them they aren't as bad as some make out. it can be very noisey with teenagers but on the upside we had the pool to ourselves until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon because they were all in bed. they are clean and well maintained and while we were there they were putting in air con. for some top class food then go to o'buzio restaraunt on the left hand side as you walk down towards the strip , we went every night and everything was amazing. on the whole we had a great time and never let the noise spoil it do be aware of the park accross from the apartments , stay clear of it at night and take the 30 sec detour round it for your own safety

I'm just back from a 10 day holiday in Portugal and after reading the reviews before going I was quite nervous but I can assure ye that it is lovely accommodation. However I was with 3 girls (we are 19) and I wouldn't recommend it for families because it gets loud so its more suited for young people. It was very good value and the maids clean the room nearly every day. Father Ed's is no longer open and that area in front of the apartment is very run down and I would not recommend walking through there as a short cut. Taxis are cheap so its best to get a taxi home from the strip after a night out, its only 3 or 4 euro. Its situated at the top of the strip and literally a 5 minute walk to all the restaurants and 15 minutes to al the bars and clubs. The pool was handy as well because we thought the sea was too cold and it was never too crowded. Staff were friendly as well so we were all very happy with the accommodation. Its very spacious as well and fits 4 people comfortably. I hope this review was helpful because I was very nervous going here after reading such negative reviews! I would go back definently!

Myself & 7 friends have just returned from this hotel and whilst my expectations were reasonably low, it still failed to meet them!

We're 8 older (30-40) guys looking for a clean and pleasant base from which to have a good weekend away before one of us renews our wedding vows later in the year.

The first thing that hits you is the hotel seems to be set in the middle of Beirut, it's only 0.5 mile or so from the strip but you would definitely not feel comfortable returning to this hotel of an evening alone. A number of the local bars have been closed including the often mentioned Father Ed's over the road, even if it had been open I doubt we would have chanced it given the state of the place.

The hotel itself was fairly clean although the rooms were desperately in need of an update, the pool was small and I can imagine would have been very crowded in busier times but worst of all was the constant shouting / banging of doors / arguing that you were forced to endure through most of he night and, believe me, we had drank enough to drown out most things!

Albufeira itself was great, although if we were to go again we would go to the old town and leave the strip and The Mirachoro I Apartments well alone!
