Can't say a thing against this place. From the midnight arrival to early morning departure I was happy. Marco and Salvatore did an amazing bbq. The other guests were all very nice. The yoghurt dip that the lady made was amazing on bbq and have used your recipe a few times since returning home. Thank you.
Would recommend these apartments highly. There is nothing too much trouble for the staff if you just ask. Clean quiet family friendly apartments. Nice pool area and very reasonable bar prices.

We have just come back from a 12 day stay and all I can say is if you book here you will not regret it. It's only 5 min walk to the strip... A few yards to a local supermarket and close enough to old tow n to walk or get a taxi for 5 euros. We had room b2 which was a ground look overlooking the pool...amazing. We could always get a sunbed and it was so peaceful. We met some lovely people too. BBQ is recommended!! Customer service is second to none and for a great price!! Missing it already!!!

Room Tip: B2 is ground floor with best view!!

First of all, I would like to thank Salvatore and the rest of the staff for their help and exceptional customer service throughout my week stay. Their efforts are commendable and really make this hotel. The hotel itself is clean, next to the supermarket and within walking distance of both the strip and the old town. As a younger customer, who stayed with two other males, we were shown respect and respected the rules that have given the hotel many plaudits. The hotel is certainly family/ couple friendly but also for groups of three or four, as long as you respect the rules. A special mention also for the BBQ, which was brilliant and well worth the money, considering mixed grills were priced at €40 on the strip. The only improvement i would suggest would be snacks at the bar or ice creams (as previous posters have mentioned). Although the bar prices certainly compensate for this slight drawback, really cheap! I will certainly be staying at Lageado Sol again, obrigado.

Just got back from a 10 day stay. First time in Portugal. First time in this apartment. Very impressed with the friendly and caring staff. Went out of their way to make us feel special and welcome. They even bought a beautiful birthday gift for one of the lovely girls we made friends with!!! Not many places would do that!!! OK the other reviews have mentioned a few problems- like the leaky shower doors. Be prepared to mop the bathroom floor. But in my opinion this is a small inconvenience, far outweighed by the excellent standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel. For the price I think this is a gem of a place. If you want 5 star look elsewhere-if you want friendly clean basic accommodation this is your place!! Found the sofa beds in our studio spotless and comfy. Well equipped kitchen area-although didn't do anything other than basics!!Our studio overlooked the pool. Lovely amazingly peaceful area when we were there-but as is the case on every holiday, your stay is influenced by the consideration or lack of by your fellow guests!! .Marco in the bar area was lovely. Would have liked him to sell ice-cream though! We found the noise in the apartment not too much of a problem. You have to expect a few scraping chairs on tiled floors, but not a great problem while we were there, my tip is to use wax earplugs from boots!! Never travel without them!! Salvatori on reception is amazing!! Took time with each guest to give a very useful map and explain local amenities. Perfect-didn't try to push or sell anything but happy to recommend if asked. Cooked a mean bbq while we were there!!Found the location great. About 5 minute walk to strip and 20 minutes to old town. We got taxi back up from old town cost about 4-5 euros.

We booked this holiday about 3 weeks before hand through easy jet holidays and paid about £230 for the accommodation (for 1 week), which was a 1 bed apartment between 2 of us. The reception of the apartment block is very nice, I think it must have just been refurbished. We arrived before the check in time, but the guy on reception was very helpful and took our details regardless and said we could wait in the pool area till check in time (3pm). He also gave us a map of the area which would have been useful had I not lost it soon after! We were given a free welcome drink by Marco the barman which was nice. When 3pm arrived we went back to the reception to get our keys and was told by a different man on reception (Salvatore - I think) that unfortunately the people in the apartment before us had broken the toilet(!) and they hadn't got it fixed in time so they were waiting for a plumber to come. He was very apologetic. We didn't mind this so much as he said it shouldn't be too long so went back to the pool area for a few more drinks. After about 25 minutes a lady came and said we could get into our apartment but the plumbing still wasn't fixed in the toilet but she didn't want us waiting around all day, so she‘d let us in the apartment to unpack. The staff members seemed friendly and helpful. Whilst we were unpacking the plumber came to diagnose the problem and the lady went to buy the parts. We went out soon after and when we came back it was all fixed. We didn't have any problems with the apartment all week after that apart from a blown bulb which was replaced straight away but that's neither here nor there. The one bedroom apartment we booked was huge! The apartment was very well equipt and in a quiet location, with the windows overlooking the pool. The windows had shutters on which we kept closed all day when we were out so that it was cool when we got back and didn’t have to put the air conditioning on. The kitchen had everything you would every need & more! There was more than enough cutlery and crockery for the four people it was supposed to accommodate (there was only two of us). The was a large dining table and 4 chairs. There was a small amount of dust on some of the surfaces but the rest of the apartment was clean. The bedroom contained two single beds and there was plenty drawers and cupboard space in the but the drawers did smell a little musty when first opened, but they didn’t make your clothes smell. The bathroom had a bath with shower overhead. The shower had a good powerful stream of water but the hot water seemed to run out quite quickly. There were towels provided, which smelled fresh and clean. The towels were changed once during the week and the ones they replaced them with were a little worn & stained but still smelled fresh & clean. The living area contained two sofa beds, a coffee table & a small t.v. We didn’t put the t.v on at all so can’t comment on what channels there were. The maids came in every morning except Sunday and made the beds and had a little clean. The balcony was overlooking a garden and had tables and chairs. We had breakfast on the balcony most mornings. The apartment was about a 10 minute walk from the strip and a 25 minute walk into the old town. There was a supermarket pretty much next door which stocked everything you needed. We got a good nights sleep most nights but there were one or two nights we were woken by people coming back at about 3am. I think you could just hear people going up the stairs as once they’d got into there apartments I fell asleep again straight away so they must have quietened down, although one night it sounded like someone was moving furniture about upstairs at 4am! The pool area & bar area is very nice, with plenty of sunloungers, tables & chairs. There is also a pool table, which we used. The pool isn’t huge but its more than adequate and the water isn’t freezing which is a bonus! There were a few leaves and flies floating in the pool but its an outdoor pool so you can’t expect anything else. I did see some men cleaning the pool area and skimming the water most mornings though. If you go the worms roundabout and turn right and follow the road towards the watches roundabout you can find some restaurants and shops. There is an excursions place called “Ticket Shop” along that road which we booked 3 excursions from which we enjoyed. They were also cheaper than anyone else. You can also catch the tourist train a bit further up the road about opposite McDonalds. I really liked staying at these apartments and wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if we went back to Portugal, I’ve already recommended them to my dad who’s looking to go to Portugal with his friends in the near future, and I’d recommend them to anyone who was visiting Albufeira.

This was simply the best customer service that we've ever received in a hotel, the management made us feel so welcome and part of their family, We didn't arrive till after 1am but the owner was waiting to welcome us. Nothing was too much effort for him or his family. Bargain price great customer service my fiancée and I will be visiting again, or as he called me Caeser Milan!!!
