                  Central location

                  That there was no real bed: two separate kind of sofa's, absolutely not appropriate for any kind of couple!

                • Older travelers
                  4.6

                  Plenty of space in apartment. Decent size balcony. Good garden & pool area.

                  Very dated, faded furnishings. Cracked tiling in bathroom and throughout the flooring in the apartment.Bath surface cracked and starting to rust.Peeling paintwork and rendering around the balcony. Solid, ceramic tiled headboard, sharp edges and very dangerous.Beds uncomfortable, recommend that you use the sofa-bed mattresses (only works if there are only 2 using the apartment!). Staff were unable to arrange a transfer to the airport for our return at the time required. We walked into town and arranged transfer for less than the hotel charged on arrival. Hotel claims to be 400 metres from the beach but they fail to state that it is located on a hill. Totally unsuitable for anyone with mobility or sight restrictions due to uneven walking surfaces. Very noisy plumbing, could hear toilet flushing in next apartment! Very poor insulation, every door that closed echoed. Bedroom window opened onto public corridor, very insecure. No air-conditioning. We re-booked this twice as the price came down, had we paid original amount 405 euros we would have complained while there. We paid 249 euros it was probably worth no more than 200 for the week.

                  Convenience-budget hotel apartments,location was great,short walk to old town and beach,and in walking distance of the strip

                  Bathrooms a tad shabby

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Good hotel with good staff especially cleaning ladies and the ladies in the reception, always a smile and doing their job well. The location was good for reaching the city and the beach.

                  1) One older gentleman in the reception gave a very negative mood and I recommend that he should not show his face in the hotel at all in contact with guests. 2) The bed in the bedroom was very hard and I missed a mattress. We used the mattress in the kitchen on top of the bed.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  We have stayed here three times so know what to expect- good basic 3+ accomodation. The situation is excellent- convenient to the old town and some good, reasonable restauranrs. There is free parking which is relatively secure and provides the oppertunity to utilise a greater part of the Algarve. And any shortcoming was more than compensated by friendly, helpful staff and a fabulous view.

                  It is important to have an apartment that has the bedroom window opening on the sea view side (alternate apts.have the bedroom window opening onto an internal corridor)- while it can be requested ione is unsure until arrival whether or not the request can be accomodated!! Also while the apt was clean it was very "worn". For example one would not be tempted to bathe in the very chipped bath - common to all three apts that we have stayed in. However the shower was more than adequate!!

                • Couple
                  5.8

                  Close to the nightlife, nice pool area.

                  Very noisy in the mornings, car drivers constantly blaring their horns and bedrooms back onto the communal walkways and the staff could talk for Portugal. No air conditioning, bedroom really hot, and they charge 1 euro to call a taxi which is a rip off.

                • Older travelers
                  4.6

                  Excellent position for the old town and fishermans beach. The staff on reception and the security man were brilliant.

                  Do not book a studio! the beds are very narrow, L shaped and fixed. The bedding and towells were not changed as often as you would expect. We stayed in August when it was exceptionally hot and no air con in the rooms.

                • Single
                  7.0

                  We enjoyed the sea view from our room very much and the short distance to the old town and the beach

                  We could see that our bathroom were a bit old - maybe it needed to be shined up a bit and the shower was not very good. The beds were not of the best kind.

                • Family with children
                  7.4

                  The Location is Perfect if you want a beach holiday and like the old town of Albuferia. Well worth paying extra for the Sea view. Apartments are basic but large and very clean.

                  The apartments are large but really need updating and the beds are without doubt the most uncomfortable ones I have ever slept on. Towels and linen should of been changed more than twice.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  Very friendly staff, very helpful with 24 hr reception. Nice and quiet around the apartments but short walk to the lively old town with loads of shops, bars and places to eat and also the fab beach.

                  No food or drinks available after six when snack bar closed so very quiet and no onsite entertainment

                • Family with children
                  9.0

                  This was a quick decision hotel we had to decide upon as our original hotel let us down last minute, we rang up straight away and the lady was very nice as she verified the room with a sea view and we checked in as soon as we arrived. Location was excellent, 5-7 mins to the beach via walking, old town with eating out places and lots of souvenir shops, stalls and markets, 10 mins from algarve shopping centre via taxi (7-8 euros) and same for zoomarine which had amazing dolphin shows (10-13 euros) for family of 4. We self catered Which worked out better as plenty of cheap places to eat full meal being 6 euros! Definitely returning very soon. Sea view was amazing and anyone with a disability or mobility problem can access the beach and old town as there are free escalators to go down to get to these places. 2 single beds and 2 sofa beds very comfy. Plates and all cutlery and glasses provided, too many things to do :) !!!

                  The bathroom was the main problem as it needed re-doing but looking at other reviews this seems to be the only fault. It has a shower and bath but the bath is starting to peel on the inside and is okay for a very quick shower, also no lock on the bathroom door which was a pain. Nothing else to fault.

                  A bit outdated but suited our needs. 5Min walk from old town,would stay there again.

                  Rooms could do with a bit of updating.
