Hotel Paraiso de Albufeira
Ranked #89 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed April 17, 2007

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday and thought that this hotel was fantastic. We went self catering but ate in the restaurant a couple of times and found the food to be gorgeous. The day and night entertainment was great and was suitable for all ages. The reps that we had were great when struggling with bags when we first got there they helped to carry them to reception for us and were really friendly. The reception staff were great spoke perfect english and were really friendly. The hotel has a jewellers, a small shop that sells food, drinks and cigarettes, a sweet shop. The location is great with plently of banks, shops, supermarkets, taxi ranks, KFC and Mcdonalds.
The rooms are spacious, clean and the kitchen has enough you need to make simple meals. The maids were brilliant they work 6 days a week and do a great job and are really friendly. They provide you with plenty of clean towels and blankets. The bar staff were nice and friendly. The pool area was lovely and it has a snack bar that serves burgers, chips, beer, soft drinks and ice cream.
We were told by another guest who was all inclusive that after 11 pm they had to pay for their own drinks so bear this in mind if you book!!!!
I would definately go back here.

Excellent hotel! We had a 6th floor suite overlooking the pool and the ocean - it was huge and in excellent condition (large bedroom and bathroom, living room and kitchen area, and large balcony with a gorgeous view. Kitchen equipment was most complete. Lots of storage space. Front desk staff spoke perfect English and were most couteous and helpful. Location is excellent with lots of parking, on a bus and tourist train route, supermarket next door. February is out of season, so the entertainment was minimal, but we weren't looking for that, there is so much to do outside the hotel. The outside pool was under renovation, but weather was a bit cool for it anyway. Albufeira is a lovely place, with a charming old town, and sand beaches. Had a rental car, and found the driving easy between towns, although streets within towns are very narrow. It is a great centre for visiting other Algarve towns, as well as Lisbon, Spain etc. Highly recommended!

Stayed at this hotel from 20/01/07 - 25/01/07 we stayed self catering. First impression of the hotel was great we arrived at night so it was all lit up. Have been to albufeira quite a few times before but never stayed in this hotel. Staff were really friendly and nothing to much hassle. Rooms are massive with great balconys. Would stay here again. For anice meal try The Bank in Albufeira old town square and Kilt and Celt for a lovely breakfast on the strip.

I stayed at this hotel with my partner in December 2006. The hotel is very clean, but wasnt happy on given a studio with a sofa bed which we were expected to make up ourselves. We asked to change to a twin room, and had no further problems. Food quite acceptable. Albufeira an odd place, had a litle trouble with drug pushers on the 'Strip' so avoided that and stayed in th 'Old town'. Also, time share touts were a pain. Found a good modern bar, 'The Bank' live music every night. Good food. Silves is worth a trip to, have sardines, they are good! Lol. Good week away , whilst everone else was struggling with xmas. Weather was warm. Cold at night. Visit Zoo marine, very good.

We recently returned from a month long stay at the Paraiso and were very pleased with this choice. We were aprehensive as we had read a lot of reviews that weren't good. This hotel is more like a 3 star than a 4 - but to us it had more good points than bad. Our room (on the 7th floor) was excellent with a wonderful view of the outdoor pool below and the sea beyond. At first they tried to put us into a 1st floor room, and when I told them "I didn't do the 1st floor" after a few strange looks from the desk personnel they promptly booked us into the 7th floor. The maid service was excellent and they cleaned and tidied our room 6 days a week. The location was very convenient to the Modelo Shopping Centre (a short block). We had a 20 minute walk down to the Old Town which we quite enjoyed. We did not use the Paraiso restaurant as it was over priced - as was the gift shop. There are so many places to eat (as well as excellent food shopping at the Modelo) that we thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them. Best Day Tours (which is located in the lobby of the Modelo Shopping Centre) offered great 1 or 3 day tours around Portugal, their prices were very affordable. There are a couple of Internet cafes within a block (above McDonald's) and a laundromat. Do not use the Paraiso's laundry facilities - they are very bad.
All in all we would definitely recommend this hotel for location and comfort and hope to return one day.

We went SC and had a T1 which was on the 3rd floor. The room was very spacious and clean. The kitchen was complete and the whole room was tastefully decorated. The facilities are excellent and the pools outside enormous. We only used the indoor pool and the jacuzi which let me tell u is a must, it's super warm. The room itself was just right and we never had to switch on the heat, the kids loved their stay:) The bathroom too was perfect, and let me tell u that the shower is potent, and I had myself a good massage lol. Oh and I read from some reviews that the beds were not comfortable, well ours were just fine. Our room had a view to the road and although some ppl meantioned that it got noisy, we had no problem, but I guess in summer it could get a little rawdy with the kids running around:). On the whole our little week-end break was just perfect! I'd definately go back to this Hotel.

Before visiting the Algarve and this hotel for the first time, we read lots of mixed reviews on this hotel that left us confused. we decided to go for it and see for ourselves what it was really like and we were very pleased. The hotel was lovely with 24hr reception and cctv everywhere which was very reassuring. The views were excellent and the staff very friendly. The hotel was extremely large and clean and included shops,restaurant and bar. Mcdonalds and kfc were literally only 2 minutes away! The weather at this time of year [october] was still warm and just the right temperature. we also had car hire which we would recommend as we could explore further affield.we would strongly recomend visiting the zoo marine which had dolphins, sealions,aquarium and lots more which turned out to be one of the best days we had! So if you are confused like we were, all we can say is ignore bad reveiws,as we found the hotel great and would definately go back there again!
