“Great hotel”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Just spent two weeks at the Tropical Sol and would highly recommend to any one who is planning on going to Albufiera. Spotlessly clean, really good apartment even though we had booked a studio, very pleasant staff, nice pool with good pool bar with reasonable prices. I would like to return myself sometime.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel having been recommended to us by a Portugese friend.
We have stayed in various hotels/apartments in Albufeira for the past 6years and this hotel is without a doubt the best. Apartments lovely, snack bar great and Antonio in the hotel bar makes the best sangria. Food is good and reasonably priced from the snack bar.

Room Tip: All rooms are pool view - a bonus in my opinion. Small friendly hotel. No need for entertainment in...

we have just returned from another week at tropical sol and again it was great. they have modernised the kitchens although i cannot understand why the overhead cupboards open from the lounge side but thats a minor detail. the beds are still hard and the pillows need renewing. we still love it here though and will definately return. we had no problems with noise even though the hotel was full. the apartments are spotless and cleaned 6 days a week. all the rooms are spacious and well equipped. we look forward to coming back very soon. thanks to all at tropical sol.

People had complained on Tripadvisor about lack of sunbeds - not problem for us after the first 2 days as a large party of girls left the hotel, but this would have been a good enough reason to have gone to use facilities elsewhere - that would have been a loss of income for the hotel as we used the pool bar for drinks and lunch every day. Its a false econonmy for them not to have enough sun beds (and parasols) for residents and getting up early to put towels on sunbeds was a bit of a pain. One very strange thing is that the grass on which the sunbeds lie was always wet (muddy in places) which didnt help my hayfever !
The hotel is clean and fairly close to the stip - where the night life is. There are a few shops there too - mostly for souvenirs. A taxi to the Old Town (and the beach) costs about 4 euros so doesnt break the bank either and on the whole food is nicer there but more expensive (10-25 euros). Hiring a sunbed and parasol on the beach costs 15 euros a day ( or part day) so for us staying around the pool was a better option. Drinks in the pool bar are about 3 euros for a spirit and mixer or a pint of beer (they also sell cider which is unusual) and the food was quite nice - between (5-10 euros) and good value. Rooms are very clean and the kitchen facilities are basic but adequate for making snacks - there is no freezer compartement in the fridge - so no ice for cocktails on the balcony (unless you as the pool bar staff - they gave us jugs with ice to take to our rooms).
The guy who checked us in was a bit grumpy and wouldnt give us any spare room keys - we asked one of the women later who gave us one each. They have safes in the room - charge is 10 euros (plus 20 euro's refundable deposit). The pillows are a bit lumpy and the beds a bit hard but you cant expect luxury at these prices). Staff got us extra pillows on request (arrived very quickly)
Dont shop for food at the little corner shop next to the hotel - one of our party bought some biscuits to find they were over a year out of date and they had changed the expiry date on the packet! The little supermarket just over the roundabout with the worms on it (you go out of the hotel main entrance, turn left then right - you'll see the roundabout - go diagonally opposite) is much better and cheaper. The Fat Cats bar thats left out of the hotel and across the road to the left does good food and is very reasonable.
Its a good budget hotel so dont worry about booking it - it will be fine!
Weather was lovely all week so we cant complain at all.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to face the pool - but the lift seems to stop between floors so you still have to go...

Nice hotel, great location. Internet was expensive. We were there for 3 nights and the bathroom wasn't cleaned at all during this time. No towels for the pool area. Close to the strip where all the clubs were but that wasn't really our scene. Perfect if you love Blackpool. The old town was much nicer. If we go back to Albufeira we won't stay in this area.
