We stayed here all inclusive for a week, the room we were given was lovely, very spacious with our own private roof terrace. The thing that will stop us from returning was the food, so repetative, very little choice, no way is this hotel a 4 star!!

We have just returned from Portugal and stayed at this hotel for 5 days. We found our apartment very clean, and if you read the literature you will find that towels will be replaced within 3 days, all you need to do is leave them on the bathroom floor, which we did and everything was replaced. The staff were very helpful, friendly and I must mention David Diaz at reception, extremely helpful and friendly, we requested 2 extra pillows and immediately he requested housekeeping to bring to the apartment, same with the door he arranged maintenance to check it, he arranged all our tours, checked and confirmed our return shuttle to the airport, arranged packed lunch for us whilst on a day tour. Nothing was too much for him or any other staff on reception. We only had a bed & breakfast arrangement and we were happy with the selection available on offer at breakfast. We were near local restaurants which were very good, mini supermarket where good wines at very modest prices were available. The coffee shop nearby served lovely cakes as well. It's advisable to book your shuttle at the hotel as soon as you arrive as it's popular otherwise a taxi to centre town cost approx.12 Euro's. Our apartment overlooked the golf course and we sat on the balcony sipping cold wine in tranquillity. On the whole we loved our trip to Portugal and would definitely put this on the list to revisit again.

We booked this hotel based on the belief that four star hotels were of a certain standard ( we have stayed in enough that have been) however this hotel is no where near this standard. We booked our holiday on an all inclusive basis and found the food awful, each night there was a choice of only 1 meat or 1 fish dish and a pasta if you were lucky. The choice was no where near what we expected from a 4*. We were only there a week but within that week we saw the same meals come out twice. Surely in one week, the meals could be varied?!
The sunloungers beside both pools ( there are only 2 pools, not 4 as advertised in places, each pool had a childs pool attached) were filthy and sunk in the middle.
The apartments themselves were clean but exceptionally basic, over the 5 days we were there our towels were not changed once, just re-folded and the one day that we requested more toilet paper it took over 4 hours even after multiple requests, bear in mind we were all inclusive not self catering.

There is very little do around the hotel and therefore be prepared to pay 10-15 Euros each way for a taxi into Albufeira. The two local beaches are however beautiful.


Please do not book this hotel believing that it is of a 4* standard, it is absolutely not and will only leave you disappointed, we met so many people whilst we were there who were in the process of trying to move hotels.

We stayed at Luna Alpinus for a long weekend, our second stay. We found the Hotel to be spotless and staff very amenable & helpful. We stayed self catering so cannot comment on food, but found the service in the bar & pool areas very good. The Hotel is a distance from Albuferia which isn't a bad thing as we like to be undisturbed at night, there is an excellent car hire service round the corner from the Hotel and we also booked a taxi which arrived in a few minutes. The beach is 15 minutes walk from the Hotel and there are shops and cafes nearby, the beach is spotless. With 2 teenagers in tow internet access was a problem, this can be bought from Reception but at 5 euros for 24 hours for one phone/computer I thought was quite expensive. All in all we had an enjoyable stay and would definitely return

Spent one week at this hotel. We were half board:one bedroom studio. Our room was cleaned everyday with clean towels etc. All staff were polite and very helpful. The food was not fancy but good. Would have thought Internet access should have been available throughout the hotel and not just within the reception area.
Did not enjoy the location of our room as was close to bar etc therefore very noisy at night.
One criticism would be the in house entertainment....cringe factor comes to mind
