Recieved an upgrade to a sea view room which was rage and comfortable excellant walk in shower. If I had to raise one negative point it would be that there was 2 complementary coffee pods on our first day but then charged for extra. Breakfast normal selection always fresh, pool area clean with towel service.

We had a 2 night stay, arriving on a Sunday morning and leaving on the Tuesday afternoon. We were able to use the hotel facilities for the entire time, leaving our bags at reception. On arrival, we were given a cool drink and cold face towel and facilities were explained by the receptionist. We had our room upgraded to one with a pool view, which was a nice surprise. We were given a voucher for a free bottle of wine if we had 2 main meals in the restaurant (we used this and had a top notch 3 course meal), a voucher for a 2nd drink half price (which we used on a cocktail each) and a voucher for a reduction on a massage, which we didn't use in the end. The hotel was clean, modern and had a luxurious feel. The staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel was quiet and felt uncrowded, but busy enough to have a nice atmosphere in the restaurant and bar. The buffet breakfast was plentiful and very good, with an amazing amount of choice, including a few more unusual options. We used the spa facilities, gym, yoga room, pool, and had lunch outside on our last day. There were smart toilets by reception and toilets and showers by the spa/gym area we could use when we didn't have a room. The whole experience was thoroughly relaxing and felt like a real treat!

Excellent room - good facilities (including a bidet), clean and functional room with a comfortable bed. We had a room with balcony on the street side of the building which meant we received a surprising amount of traffic noise as we were on the main road out of Albufuera to Faro airport which meant that the noise continued through the early hours of the morning. Subsequently we were forced to close the double glazing and sleep with the air-conditioning on rather than enjoy the gentle buzzes of the Algarve autumn.
Staff are wonderful, friendly, efficient and knowledgable about the area.
Bar lacked a bit of atmosphere - drinks probably too expensive so everybody quickly catches onto the bar next door where drink is half the price (and a good range of snacks) and the staff friendly and efficient.
Beaches close by- involve a walk - but quality sandy beaches within a 15 minute walk.
Small pool - a bit cold for swimming in October.
Excellent restaurants very close - good value fresh Portuguese family cooking and a good Indian within staggering distance. Best of the restaurants was the Three Maria's where service, food and ambience was excellent.
Excellent buffet breakfasts - including the

Close to amenities very clean very friendly, helpful staff. The maid comes around every day. large room, we stayed in a twin with pull-out sofa which has a separate sitting kitchenette area with a balcony view of the pool. Has air conditioning which was slightly on the mild side, so we left the balcony door open to get the air in because it becomes hot and humid. Large pool and a children's pool with ample sun loungers. In the apartments there is a hair dryer, iron and iron board, all utensils they even give you washing up liquid and a sponge! Spare pillows and a few spare towels in the wardrobe with hangers to hang your clothes. Very good lighting in the apartment.. Television with remote control, ITV, BBC One and a few other British speaking channels. A very clean safe and secure Hotel.
Lots of restaurants little supermarket all just outside the hotel. Wi-Fi, pool tables, beauty therapy salon, sauna and gym all in the hotel. Overall couldn't ask for more had everything that you could need. A very clean and safe Hotel.

The former little white fishing village of Albufeira, now densely developed beneath a sea of apartments and mid-rise blocks, is the region’s most popular resort. The pretty Old Town is wall-to-wall restaurants and bars, though some local establishments and residential areas still remain. Its picture-postcard Fisherman’s Beach, with spectacular ochre cliffs and rock stacks, remains an iconic, albeit often very crowded, Algarve sight.
