              Individual guest reviews

              • Couple
                8.2

                Staff friendly and helpfull.

                Requested use of an iron and none was available-from the entire complex or the hotel next door- not great when attending a wedding.

              • Group of friends
                7.8

                good location for a easy walk to lovely beaches and town with many restaurants, bars and nightlife, plenty of car parking and easy road access in and out of town. good sized comfortable rooms, would certainly use again.

              • Couple
                7.4

                The spacious apartments were great, the pool area also spacious, clean and well planted with palms etc. .

                Wouldn't recommend the 6Euro Breakfast option however as it wasn't good value and very repetitive,

              • Family with children
                3.8

                The apartment is OK. It does have a well equipped kitchen and is quite spacious.

                Very "cold" feeling as you walk in. Rude receptionist. Def not 4 stars. Found dirt in room first day. Was later cleaned though. The location. It has great rates although this boring hotel is not to ´recommend

              • Family with children
                7.8

                The apartment was very spacious and was equipped moderately, good sized freezer and big fridge. Air conditioning worked and we had BBC1 as an english channel on the TV. Outdoor Pool was fine and although Easter holidays poolside was empty and never had to consider saving sunbeds! Distance of Hotel from strip is a short 10 minute walk as is the local beach. We had hire car to travelled further a field to beaches. Maids came every day to clean.

                Indoor Pool a bit shabby and not the cleanest around pool edge but still clean in water and an option for kids when it rained. Hats must be worn in indoor pool but can be pruchased at 2.50 euros from reception. Would be good to have an oven but only had Microwave.Sofa Beds very hard after 7 nights on them.

              • Family with children
                6.2

                Indoor pool was great for the kids as it was a little stormy during our visit. Bathing caps were required, but were available for 2.50 Euro at the front desk. It was not a bad walk down the hill to the beach for older children (ages 11,9,7) We were able to cook some meals in the room to save money. The room was spacious and cleaned daily. The town of Albufeira was nice. The room was a great value for the money

                This is not what you think of when you think 4 stars. It must have been very nice when it was new. The bedding was a little musty and not very comfy. The room was little stuffy so we opened the windows at night but then there were a few Mosquitos. The place needs some maintainance.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                The rooms where very spacious, lots of parking space. Very quiet environment, peacefull.

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Good location, cleanliness, kitchen, reasonable price.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                The good location and good size of apartment

                A little too close to busy road. Rather quiet.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                Relaxing, comfortable . We have been before and would definately be back

                The size and comfort of the apt

              • Older travelers
                5.8

                Good room with sea views (although some distance away). Quiet pool area with superb Pool Bar serving excellent lunches.

                Adjacent to busy road but traffic noise minimised with double glazing.Few facilities -bar and restaurant not opening until 15th May. Poor state of room kitchen equipment.

              • Couple
                9.2

                quite nice and good location will recommend

              • Single
                9.2

                The apartmenthotel is spaciously designed, with good car parking faciliteis. It has very ample comfortable apartments which are well serviced, and include air conditioning,There is a well equiped kitchen, and a good range of TV channels. It is well located for sea/beach, tourism, and golf.

                While not far from all amenities it is probably necessary to have the use of a car.

              • Family with children
                5.8

                Good location, good size rooms , not expensive.

                The sheets and towels are worn out, the rooms are mouldy, no glasses in the kitchen and in the bathroom for the tooth brushes, there is no everyday supply of soap and shampoo. The internet is very slow, the city map given in the reception isn't updated.
