“Quality hotel. Very happy.Studio Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

Partner & I stayed fourth floor studio room for two weeks 19/5/14. All staff very friendly and helpful. Foyer smart. Cafe/bar ok for light snacks eg toasties, burgers, chips etc at a very reasonable price. Accommodation excelled what we were expecting for a cheap hotel. Spacious studio room with a good sized balcony with table and three chairs. Hanging rail for drying washing(no pegs take your own or buy in shop next door) Looks over other apartments but look to the right and you can see the sea. Kitchenette, fully functional. Cooker with oven and hob,microwave, frying pan, saucepan, chopping board, bottle opener,tin opener, kettle, toaster and kitchen towels (kept in unit in living area).No egg cups. Fridge with box freezer. Iron supplied, however you need to collect ironing board from hallway storage room. Living area has table and chairs and soft chair. Tv in room shows Sky News only in English. ( Full TV shown in bar downstairs) Two good sized single beds. Bathroom clean, bath with shower within.Daily maid Towels changed three times a week, beds changed twice a week. general clean of room every day. EXCELLENT STAFF!! Gym on lower floor, reading room and fabulous roof terrace with a plunge pool . 70cm deep. I travelled with a broken leg and this was fantastic as the pool was raised and I was able to sit on the raised edge and put my legs in. Terrace has sun loungers and tables and chairs. Looks like there is a roof bar but was not open while we were there. Location of this hotel is PERFECT. Beach is literally across the road. Lots of steps to get to though. Wi fi area is directly to the right outside hotel. You are next to a good shop. Come out of hotel and turn right then right again for a slightly bigger store that has a butcher counter inside. You are in easy reach on foot of good bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: All studio rooms seem to have a street view with possible side sea view. The price we paid we were d...

Algar Apartments well equipped airconditioned very comfortable 2nd floor studio with bedroom, bathroom and kitchen diner. Seaview balcony over the promenade around 20m from the beach. All day Café downstairs with great continental breakfast. Perfect location with all the restaurants and shops within 5 minutes walk. We'll be back!!

Room Tip: Sea view studio self catering - 2nd floor was quiet enough

This is the first time that we have stayed in Algar Apartments (prev visits to Armacao stayed in the Garbe now Holiday Inn). We read the reviews beforehand and were so pleased that we stayed at the Algar. We had a studio on the third floor with a side view and partial sea view, studio had 2 full size comfortable single beds, leather sofa, tv (only sky news in English), full size cooker with oven and 4 rings, microwave and good quality cookware. There was also table & four dining chairs, iron & ironing board, pull out washing line on balcony, full size bathroom with bath & shower over. There were even clean tea towels & a new sponge scourer. Towels changed every couple days & sheets changed every three days. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff, so helpful & nothing was any trouble to them- Claudia on reception is great fun to talk to. The apartments also have a small gymnasium in the basement which is free and sun beds, chairs & a splash pool on the roof- great views. Mon Café first road on the left after the church square, Victor & Jose make great savoury pastries, perfect to eat there or packed lunches, plus free wifi

The room was more than spacious and provided an excellent base for what I wanted to do. The staff were always very friendly and willing to help, from the front desk guys to Rui the night porter, who waited with me while the transfer bus did several laps of the town before picking me up.

We returned from our week at the Hotel Algar on 14th September. The reason I booked this hotel was purely for the view and proximity to the beautiful beach. I had requested a nice sea view on a high floor. However, much to our disappointment our tiny balcony was at the side of the building, overlooking apartments in a bad state of repair.on the 5th floor. The apartment was very clean with linens and towels changed regularly. The kitchenette was tiny and basic and the only light provided was from the cooker hood, but it wasn,t much of a problem, as we only ate breakfast there. The bedroom was a good size with a/c and a TV, but only one socket in the whole room. The bathroom was in need of updating, but was very clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. We did request a 4.30am wake up knock on our day of departure, which didn,t happen, luckily we woke on time ourselves..

Room Tip: I would do if I had one.

Checked in on 4th Sept, went to supermarket underneath and sat on the balcony watching the sea/beach life across the way, whilst drinking a glass of white wine. Apartments cleaned every day, reception staff were all very friendly and helpful .Kettle, toaster and plenty of clean plates etc. Air con and a hairdryer, and plenty of room in the kitchen/bathroom and bedroom areas, what more could you want? Booked accom. through Travel Republic and Resort Hoppa sorted out the efficient transfer to and from the Hotel. Around the corner is a bigger supermarket where we found a great variety of food and a very drinkable white wine called Nico for the princely sum of one euro 75 per bottle. Another plus for the Hotel is the fact that on the 8th floor is a rooftop pool with a fab view.The only drawback to the beach is the cost of sunbeds-7.25 euros each- better to buy a lilo and use it as a bed too! Portugese people very friendly and English widely spoken.
This is a typical family resort where kids are out till 12( to knock them out) plenty of bars and good restaurants offering a tourist menu for 12 euros, incl wine-not for the disco types!

Room Tip: All rooms have a sea view, but choose a higher floor for better views and less noise from the street...
