“A very nice hotel - but Albuferia is the Benidorm of the Algarve!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2011

This is a nice hotel, reasonably well located. It is part of a very large hotel complex for the region, but looking at many of the hotels in Albuferia, this is one of the best. Rooms are good, but not exceptional for apartment hotels (thought at £14/night low season, still great). Wifi in reception area (free) and the prices of drinks and food were reasonable (i.e. 8-14 euros for a main meal). Lots of tours on offer, and the pools and jacuzzi's were clean, with all facilities well maintained. Hotel has private beach access and free parking. Probably this hotel in high season would feel like Butlins though - if you're going April to September, I'd spend some more and find a nicer hotel out of Albuferia - the town is more of a Benidorm than a Cala d'Or! Anything around Faro or Lagos would serve you well. In all, 3-star rooms but due to the good facilities, it's a good choice. But avoid if you want a peaceful holiday during the high-season! Incidentally very clean, and pretty safe (the hotel compound is open, but felt safe). Beds middle of the range, and sound does travel, hence my low-season recommendation. But all round, a very good hotel.

We have just come back and all we can say is it was simply the best, this was our fifth time and we would go again and again, it was very quiet on the strip this year and we have had the most rain we have ever had but it beat the snow back home any day, the staff at CPO are just so helpful and a few places we tell anyone to try out are Mangellos, Netto, and Gills they provide such a wonderful welcome and quality to everyone who goes to visit them, we cannot wait to go back again

Just returned from the Club Praia de Oura Apts, having had a fantastic week there. Upon reading some previous reviews, I was a little bit worried about the hotel. However, we found the staff, complex and apartment very accommodating and ideal.

As we'd been allocated a studio apartment (self catering basis), we were shocked at the size of it - tiny open plan room, comprising of a kitchenettes and sofa bed. We asked to upgrade to a bigger apartment, which they happily obliged, at no extra cost!! This was in block k, and although we didn't hear the dog kennels, you did hear the main road traffic. Couldn't complain as this apt was three times the size of the studio ( so be warned if you don't like very small spaces).

Although quieter this time of year, there was enough to do - day trip to Lisbon, a visit to Villamoura - which is much more upmarket and has a lovely marina, walk along the beach and to the old part of the town. The bonus was having some lovely sunny days, when you did need sunglasses!

A word of caution, if you want to use the leisure facilities of the sister hotel - Oura Beach, it'll set you back 40.00 euros for the week -which includes an indoor (cool) pool, gym, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Else the Club Praia de Oura has a sauna and outdoor jacuzzi - no cost to use these.

The apt kitchenette was well equipped and had everything you needed, including a microwave.

Fantastic stay at Clube Praia da Oura. We booked it at a great price on Hotels.com, very friendly and helpful staff, lovely apartment with all mod cons, clean, fabulous grounds, lovely pool, free use of gym, excellent entertainment. Albufeira was lovely at this time of year (Dec/Jan), weather was so-so, up and down, but plenty to do and still great nightlife with lots of bars and restaurants open even though it is off-peak season. Lovely Winter get a way!

great complex !! shame about the yapping dogs but it didnt ruin the holiday the views more than made up for that !! asked for a pool view or sea view and low floor as we have wheelchair !! got all 3 but the complex is great for wheelchair users anyway, great entertainment staff xmas and new year in this complex was great defo coming nxt year .
apartments arnt all the same so if u have small kids tell them as some have open patios near to pools !!!
tips !!! food shopping is best done in pingo dolce and modelo hipermarket both at watch roundabout
clothing at chinesse shop at globe roundabout
lots of shops and bars and resturants open even at this time of year.
the strip is quiet during the day though.
use the lift to get to shops if u dont want to go up cardiac hill which isnt that bad !
bad thing drinks are expensive which is only let down i think, cos everything else is great even a toster,iron, and hairdryer and sky tv with all the soaps great holiday

Self catering is very well equipped. The hotel facilities and entertainment in the evening were fantastic. Not far to the Strip but you could have a lovely holiday without ever leaving the hotel grounds, as there is so much to do. We stayed in the K block, the traffic a bit noisy early morning. The coastal walk a bit scarey, would never attempt that again with all the rock falls. I would certainly recommend a visit to this hotel even though its very big ,it is friendly , well run and the staff are very helpful.

hi, this accomodation is great for every weather as it can be mixed in winter time but generally mild.Reason perfect is location to beach on your doorstep jus wander through the gardens past the pool , outdoor jacuzzis, mini cafe and juice kitchen an bowling green an its sun trap of a bar, straight to the fab beach with a selection of bars and restaurants.
The hotel has 2 more parts the beach club and Oura praia use their indoor pool and gym if you like.
2 supermarkets 3 restaurants between the 3 accomodations .
A well orchestrated entertainment programme is also in place if you like .
The hotel will organise your transfers from the Airport and back they use a company called yellowfish transfers they are very good we booked with the hotel first time they do a shuttle with them,but we went again in june (yes we enjoyed so much) and booked directly on the internet with yellowfish and realised its the same price for a private car with them.The hotel must make some commission so maybe do it on the net...
this hotel is perfect for a winter break as it has so many facilities and fantastic location.
