2/10 Poor

The hotel was closed due to coronavirus But hotel didn't refund!
MR WAYNE, 3-night trip with friends

6/10 Good

We paid extra for a room with partial sea view and requested a room high up with expedia. When we booked in, reception told us they do not do rooms with a sea view and had not recieved information from expedia regarding this. She told us she only had one room on the lower level, we asked to see it, this was a dark hole of a room at road level and was unaceptable to us. She then stated she had another room, we looked at this, still low level with no view of sea and overlooked the swimming pool. We then said we would have to have a full refund, at which she then produced a third room for us to have a look at, this was what we had expected from our booking website with a partial sea view and we happily accepted. This experience tainted our start to our holiday.

8/10 Very good

We were in a room with no veiw & the manager gave us a room overlooking the pool & the old town . Rooms clean, beds comfy, only problem was there was a lot of noise from the corridor as the doors seem to all have large gaps & the corridor carpet has no underlay so heard every footstep & conversation!! But overall good, would recommend & stay again.

The property is in a good position within easy walking distance to the old town, bars, shops and restaurants and the beach. The breakfast is very basic, only offering Chamomile or decaf tea. I found the bed very uncomfortable it was extremely hard. There isn't a hair dryer in the room but thankfully I had taken one. There was only one socket in the room so taking a multi usb charger is usefull if you have more than one phone/tablet to charge.

Would go back
Nice place to stay, good location, helpful staff. Only down side was the noise made by the cleaners in the morning, starting from 8.00 am. Not good if you want a relaxing sleepy morning. Good visit overall though.

4/10 Fair

The rooms we had were on the first floor were very small and not clean at all. Location was great but that’s about it. Breakfast was also disappointing, go across the street to Eddie’s.

Great location near Old Town and just happy it was only a pit stop for the night. Don’t get me wrong, the people at the front desk were real nice but the hotel needs some work. We were given the first room when you walk into the hotel (room 300). Felt like I was in a jail cell! The room was located in the lobby of the hotel and as you can imagine, the traffic and noise level was very high. Pretty sure it was a handicap room because the entry way had two wooden doors that were paper thin. Cobwebs, stained blankets, and a dirty straw that was left behind from a prior guest. The carpet was disgusting as well. Not to mention, the mattresses literally felt harder than concrete. The air conditioning and the view from the window down to Old Town was the best part about the room. Fortunately we didn’t stay in the room for too long. Let’s just say we didn’t sleep too well (or at all).

A modest hotel but overpriced. Decent room. Small bathroom were you are notified from the start that for stained towel will be paying 10 euros and that the towels will be replaced every other day. Good service otherwise, but the area is very noisy day and night, as the whole Albufeira is.
