We have stayed here before on several occasions and were booked in from 2nd to 19th October via Travel Republic. A week before the end of our holiday we were informed that the hotel was ceasing trading on the following Monday and that we were to be transferred, next day, to a sister hotel, Perola do Algarve. Apparently, 44 of the apartments have been sold in one block to an Irishman who is going to refurbish them and then, presumably, sell of let them off. Sure enough, the workmen were in on the following Tuesday and refurbishment work was under way.

Although the Valmangude attracted mixed reviews, we always enjoyed our stays there - it was in the perfect location midway between the old town and Santa Eulalia and we shall definitely miss staying here.

Having booked this hotel as a last minute rash decision, we regretted not spending more time doing research and reading reviews.

The hotels location was perfect, far enough away from the main nightlife area's whilst being a short walk away, same for the beach. Unfortunately this was the only positive point about the stay here.

The room was averagely clean upon arrival, a double room was advertised however the room only had twin beds. The maids were supposed to change the towels three times a week, we had to chase them to change them the first time which was the 4th day of a 7night stay and we ended up only having them changed twice during the whole stay, and this was after requesting them be changed several times. The sun loungers by the pool were really uncomfortable, half of the back rests were broken and the rest felt like you were laying on spikes. There was no kettle in the apartment, you had to pay for one at reception! There was also no safe in the room, you had to pay a deposit and a daily rate to hire one. The friendliness of the staff was also sub par.

If you are wanting to stay in this area, I am sure there are tens of other hotels that are a similar price but would give you a much better experience.

myself and 2 other girls stayed in this hotel in Sept 2012. We had read all the reviews about it and wasn't sure what to think. The hotel is basic but it has all the appliances you need for self catering, could do with a lick of paint if anything. The room we stayed in had to be one of the biggest in length. Was close to the strip about 10 mins and quick taxi into the old town about 6-7 Euro's. Lovely family pub beside it called Fat Cats had good entertainment and nice food. Will stay in it again in 2013 when we go back.

I've stayed in Albufeira a few times now, and this is bar far the worst hotel I have stayed in (would go as far as saying the worst out of all in the world, and I've stayed in some not so nice ones...)

Arrived to find dirty marks on the towels, peeling paint trying to cover up the dirt on the tiles in the bathroom, half inch thick dust on the paintings in the bedroom, under the sink, and on the vent in the bathroom, a dirty table cloth, dirty marks on the walls in the living room, sweet wrappers and rocks under the sofas and broken tiles in each room.

The water was constantly yellow, apart from the last day where it was off most of the day, and the few times it was on we could only get the horrible red/brown 'sewage' water out of all the taps.

The pool bar shuts from mid September, so if your going late September or October, don't hope on being able to use this amenity as advertised. The pool has missing tiles as seen in other reviews, and a good percentage of the sun loungers are broken.

An extra warning to not leave valuables around, I was on the apartment one day with the door locked, the door opened and I assumed it was a cleaner, even though they hadn't rang the bell or knocked. When I went to the door to look I saw a cleaner at her trolley 2 doors down, so I sat on the balcony watching the door, the door was left open for 40 minutes, and no one came in, the cleaner that was nearby disappeared, and our cleaner came in several hours later. I'm glad I was in the apparent or anyone could have been in our room with the door left open for so long.

We just got back on 4th October from Portugal, we stayed at the Valmangude Jardim Apartments. We were happy with the accommodation, the apartment was clean and roomy, the kitchen was adequate (hob, fridge, mircowave), spacious bedroom and living room. Excellent location, 10 minutes walk to the Strip, 10 minutes walk to the beach, 20 minutes to the old town. The reception staff were very helpful and the cleaning staff who came everyday were friendly and cheerful. This apartment accommodate would suit anyone on a budget. You will get value for money.
