        Very good value, Rooms are lovely, pool area clean.

        Apart from the great night porter, staff seemed jaded, tired and unfriendly, as if it was the end of a very busy season, but its only the start....really we were not made feel welcome and our family felt we were in the way! Not a good feeling when you are your holidays.

      • Older travelers

        Studio was a great, bigger then any previous studio I stayed in.

        Hotel did not change the towels enough, once every four days is very poor service

      • Family with children
        8.2

        We loved the fact that the hotel was so central.It was very near restaurants and bars and had a supermarket on the corner.It was also very near the Strip ,a big shopping area with bars and restaurants and was just a short journey by train to the old town.We also loved the fact that it was within easy walking distance to the beach.A Word of caution though, the old town is a little more expensive than the area around the hotel or the Strip.

        There was entertainment there some nights but it would be great if it was provided everynight !

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Nice area around pool,and kept clean. Apartments are cleaned every day except Sunday. Staff are friendly,and food, and drinks not to dear.

        Situation and staff very good

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Central location, close to beach, shopping and nightlife. Bus stop very close.

        Reception staff were not helpful. They were ignorant and when we asked about loclal shopping they said there was none. In fact the biggest shopping centre in albufeira was five minutes away by taxi and there was another shopping centre within walking distance.

      • Single
        6.2

        location good supermarket across street, pool area nice

        rooms meant to be cleaned daily didnt happen saw cleaners twice in a week

        location and services of aparthotel.

        didn't like studio room, transferred to a 1 bed apartment

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Pleasant hotel and staff. Very good value and good facilities. Would return.

        One noisy guest at 2.30 am. just only once.

      • Couple
        6.6

        Location is good and pool big but needed to be cleaned more. Nice place for money paid.

        Hotel charged for bus from airport even though bus never turned up. No doulbe beds, two singles pushed together. Pool should be kept cleaner.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Got the pool view that was asked for when booking,only 10 minutes from the strip,cheap and cheerful plesent stay

        Towels only changed every 4 days,and bed sheets only once a week Race for sunbeds which had no cushions, very hard on back

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Good pool facilities and its location was near to everything - cafes, bars etc

        Towels could have done with changing more frequently however I understand that this is for environmental reasons

      • Family with children
        7.8

        hotel was in easy reach of beach and the strip

        would have been nice to have had a oven in the apartment

      • Group of friends
        7.8

        Clean and big pool

        As someone who likes to go to the beach....I would not select this Hotel again due to the silly pool time opening times. Although a big nice pool .The pool closes at 1900 every night.....this is silly as in mid-summer the guests are still coming from the beach. Flexible pool opening times to adjust for day light should be enforced.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Very clean, quiet area, nice pool, all amenities provided

        Two gripes. Towels provided once every 4 days. We paid for breakfast for the 3 mornings. Breakfast very very poor, not even a tomato insight. We had to supplement our breakfast by buying in proper orange juice , tomatoes, onions, olives, even breakfast cerale
