We were slightly disappointed with the Solar de Alqueva; maybe the very positive comments by others had led us to have unreasonably high expectations. It was clean, bright, there was plenty of parking space, a swimming pool with seating around and our bedroom was of a decent size. Further, the staff that we met were friendly and welcoming. However, it was all, somehow, a little characterless. We used it for an overnight stop and had a good night’s sleep on comfortable beds. My wife appreciated a relative rarity, a dressing table which had both a decent mirror over it and an electrical socket nearby so that she could attend to her hair in comfort. The breakfast buffet could certainly be improved; it featured orange drink instead of juice, a limited range of bakery products and bland ham and cheese although cereal, yoghurt, a little fresh fruit and the usual hot drinks were also available. The Solar de Alqueva does the job and is fair value. We would certainly be prepared to stay there again but probably not for more than one night at a time.
