“Fabulous hotel”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We've stayed twice, once in 2011 and again in 2012. We loved it. The location on the lovely sandy beach is fantastic, all the hotel rooms have a sea view. The hotel is very clean with smart facilities - bar, lounge, library (loads of books to borrow) - all were immaculate. We were only b& b but on the couple of occasions that we dined in the hotel (a la carte, not buffet), we were treated like royalty. The food and service were excellent. The rooms are large with spacious balconies. On our first visit we were upgraded to a suite but it was so big we kept forgetting where we'd put stuff. The pool is large with plenty of sun loungers. Staff were all very helpful and polite. The area is very quiet, but as both our visits were in September I can't judge what it's like in high season. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from with varying prices. We love Altura so will be going back this year, next month in fact. This time we've decided to rent a villa as our family including 6 month old grand-daughter will be coming with us. But I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Eurotel, it's really lovely.

Great hotel on beach,when we arrived we got upgrade to suite on 9th floor with great views and free bottle of wine. As we arrived late in evening we just had a main from a la carte menu ,which was excellent ,another evening we tried buffet dinner and we were not impressed,would not have buffet again. Breakfast was great. Great pool area, we loved the decking area with big comfy chairs where you can have your coffee. Try restaurant next door you won't be disappointed. We used sun transfer taxi and would highly recommend them. We will return.

Stayed April 2013

This hotel is perfect if you want a nice out of the way place, beach holiday is ideal, miles of beach and plenty of room.
Hotel is easy to find, can be seen easily from main road into Altura, food is of a good standard, not loads of choice but always something to suit, room very clean and spacious with all the usual amenities including free safe.
This hotel I would certainly use again, I hired a car, Monte Gordo is ten minutes away and roads are reasonably quiet to get out and about if you wish. Enjoyed our stay !!

Like others, we were expecting an okay hotel but clearly it was way better than expected. Location was easy to find and the short walk to the beach was a delight. The grounds are very nice overall. Parking is easy and free. The breakfast was excellent and was typically what you can expect with a European meal. It always amazes us that nearly every property we stayed at in Portugal had what we referred to as watered down orange juice in a country where oranges are so plentiful. The Wifi is pretty weak in the rooms but stronger in the public areas. Very nice library to sit and read. The rooms were spacious with delightful balconies and the bathroom was spacious as well. There was a DVD player in our room that also played MP3's.
The front desk people were exceptional. Would stay here again without hesitation

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must

Was wanting a nice quiet and peacefull hotel and that is exactly what I got. The room was reasonably small but had everything I needed, helped by the fact the TV had about 6 British channels. The view from the balcony was fantastic, I was on the top floor and it was breathtaking. The pool area was lovely and had plenty of sunbeds. Chances are I will come back here again at some point. If you are after a relaxing holiday in a peacefull location then this is the hotel for you.

We stayed for a week in April/May. The hotel offers all that is needed for a relaxing break. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The free transport to surrounding areas is efficient and welcome. The town is small but has enough bars and places to eat to provide variation and the food generally (in and out of the hotel) is good. The beaches are fantastic and ideal for long walks.

Room Tip: we stayed in a sea view suite, very nice

Just back from 10 days at this hotel. Very pleased when we got an upgrade to a suite on the 8th floor. Hotel very clean and modern furnishings. Rooms exactly as the photos and all rooms have lovely sea view. The food was lovely and well worth paying for half board to have evening meal included.
The area of Altura is extremely quiet however. It feels like it is a summer resort and most of the houses were empty. It has only a few small shops and a couple of small supermarkets. The hotel runs a free bus 3 days per week to larger towns for shopping etc. This is very worthwhile as there are only so many times you can walk around Altura!!!!
This is the ideal place if you want a nice quiet holiday.

Room Tip: higher floors best views

Thank you for your nice comments. We are pleased to know that you have enjoyed your stay and our free upgrade to a Suite with sea view on 8th floor.
There is definitely a wider selection of local activities and shops in between June and September, but that is one of the reasons why we also offer the free shuttle bus service during the entire year.
We do hope to welcome you again soon.
