                The hotel don't have a secure room where I can leave the bags after I checkout

                8.8

                Our room was lovely, I booked a double room and our room was very large with four beds and a balcony that got all the afternoon sun. The pool was nice and the hotel was very close to the beach. The city centre was only a short walk away.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                We enjoyed going to the indoor pool and jaguzzi , able to access beach from pool being able to use the facilities of the internet.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                The fact it was situated right next to the beach and in short distance to the town centre of Albufeira. Will definately recommend this hotel and will be going again

              • Couple

                5.8

                close to the beach, nice view & sound of the ocean.

                It's a sprawling complex aimed at a certain type of tourist, if you're looking for peace and quiet look somewhere else.

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                The location close to the beach

                The service in the reception could be much better! The two of us living in room 612 had a pair of trousers that fell down to the balcany below.We asked the staff in the reception for if they could could pick it up for us. In three days we asked, but we had to leave the hotel without the trousers.

              • Single
                7.4

                Nice location, 20 min walk on sand beach to restaurants and center of Albufeira. Balcony with a seaview, nice personell.

                Maybe not a 4 star hotel, although did not expect that either for 19 euros a night. Room was a little shaby, breakfast not luxury either, but for 4 eur ...

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Very well positioned with the beach close by and old/new town a 5 minute cheap taxi ride away. Nice pool area.

                The room was pretty basic but certainly cleaned well. On arrival there was just one person on reception trying to deal with a group of 19 arrivals and it was painstakingly long checking in taking an hour from start to finish.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                reasonable accomodation, plenty to do in area, good facilities on site

                check in was long winded

              • Single
                7.4

                Location and big terrace. Close to beach. Great value for money.

                A little run down, inexperienced staff.

              • Couple
                3.2

                Please be warned if you are given Room A128 on the resort as this room was filthy, dated and the bed is full of bugs which we eat you alive. The whole place requires some TLC and the facilities such as the indoor pool, finess suite and mini golf are all victims of slick marketing. There are much better accommodation available in the area for similar cost. We left this hotel and checked into another in order to salvage our holiday in the Algarve.

              • Single
                8.8

                Excellent location, right on a beautiful beach, walking distance to Albufeira Old Town. My room had the most fantastic view of the ocean. Booked a studio apartment but was allocated a spacious one bedroom apartment.

                This could be a fantastic resort unfortunately the grounds are not very well kept. Also advertise gym facilities but only had about 4 very old and worn machines. Of no use to a gym junkie like myself. To be fair, despite the few negatives, for 17 euro a night which is what I paid it was extremely good value in my opinion

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Nice one bed apartment nice balcony. For self-catering do not go half board or full board customers said itwas poor. But for 30 pound great deal for two apartments.

                Lots of of package tours arriving. Poor fill board service

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Excellent value for money. Large apartment. Good facilities.Very quick response to any problems. Linen charged twice a week. Bath and tea towels changed everyday

                Electricity supply very low. Only able to use 2 hobs.Table tennis room had been 'modified' from last year and was it barely able to play in it and it was very dark. Wifi didn't work more times than it did work. Hot tub often cold.Tiles round pool very dangerous.
