Silmar Apartamentos
Ranked #82 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed July 19, 2012

When originally booking this, my friends and I were a little apprehensive due to the little feedback to be found on our beloved Trip Advisor, so let me reassure what a little gem this place was! We found that any questions or queries we had i.e. early check-in etc (which they couldn't do by the way), they were very efficient in responding to any emails we sent. The customer service was outstanding.

We had a newly refurbished one bedroom apartment with more than enough storage for all four of us and our copious amounts of belongings. The bathroom was newly replaced and a great size. The kitchen was brand spanking new, with untouched appliances other than the fridge/freezer, which was spotless anyway. The furniture was comfortable and the whole apartment was very spacious, we couldn't have been happier. You couldn't have had any cleaner, with the daily service of the maids including fresh towels.

The only drawback was there was no reception here and that we had to check in at the Cerro Mar Garden Hotel about ten minutes away, but then they dropped us to our apartments when they were ready, with a substantial tour on the way by our very friendly and informative driver, Francisco.

There was a pool which could be considered small but we found it was sufficient for the number of apartments and given the heat, there was ample room for all residents which comprised of a mixture of families, couples and groups of friends.

Location wise, it was a ten minute walk downhill into the Old Town and the fabulous beach. There were some spectacular coastal views here to take in before descending down the escalators (that was a first for me) in the vast array of restaurants, shops and bars in the Old Town of Albufeira. There is also a lively square with nightly entertainment suitable for all walks of life, young and old.

When returning home if you didn't fancy the steep walk home a taxi averaged about 3/4 Euros.

The apartment was about ten minutes in a taxi to the strip which probably cost about 5/6 Euros.

For value for money, you couldn't have asked for anything more! Great apartment in a great location! Would definitely go back there again!

washing machine leaked all over kitchen on first day, not repaired.
heater broken, only given a little fan heater to replace.
no double bed as requested two single beds shoved together but had single bed sheets and blanket and as room not warm not much romantic cuddling.
pillows atrocious i'd say about 10 years old we've terrible neck and back pain.
check in at another hotel about 10 mins away in taxi, no reception in apartments as advertised, they wanted us to return keys to hotel on morning of our departure at 6am, we declined as we would have had to get a taxi, so we left keys on table in apartment, they did not take kindly to us doing this.
otherwise location great but not the romantic holiday we had worked hard all year for and to make our birthdays a special one.
