Recent reviews

Very Good 8.4 From 171 reviews

Good 6.0
Being right on the beach is fantastic - all rooms with balcony and sea view. Our plan was to watch the New Year fireworks from our balcony. Unfortunately the gala dinner was not well organised, starting late, long waits between courses and the meat course only being served at 11.40 so we had to choose finishing dinner or stick to the plan of fireworks from our balcony at midnight. This meant we missed the dessert and champagne, already paid for in advance, which was a bit disappointing. Housekeeping was great, the rooms are tired but clean (apparently, being completely refurbished in 2019) so would go again for the location but not pay for any events as it seems they can't cope with large numbers.

location & view
The location is the main reason to stay here, it’s right on the beach so you have easy access and dream views.. the breakfast was decent & the staff were all very pleasant..

Had expected more
Great location, decent balcony with lovely beach/sea views, close to centre with all shops bars and restaurants. Clean rooms, good shower, comfortable, but rooms a little basic. To be honest, we had ruled this hotel out on many other occasions because it was very expensive during the summer so we had expected a little more. There is better value in the area so for this reason we may not stay again.

Ideal break
Fantastic short break in this hotel. Ideal location in the old town close to bars and restaurants but rooms face on to the beach making it very peaceful when you want it to be. First time in Albufeira in winter so much quieter than our previous summer visits. Would highly recommend everything about this hotel
