Very clean, staff friendly, relaxing. Close to beach. Be aware there isn’t any area in the town for bars or restaurants or much to wander around / look at in the evening - hotel also doesn’t have any evening atmosphere. it is more of a quiet local residential neighbourhood. The hotel kindly recommended some really good restaurants though which were only short uber rides away.

Nice hotel in a peaceful area.

We found the hotel and its staff very calming and enjoyed the peace of our stay. The breakfast choices were good. The hotel was a short walk to a small, secuded, beach area where there was a very nice sea view restaurant to the right. The room was large enough for two and the bed generously sized and very comfortable. It is located about a ten minute drive to Albufeira centre but, to be honest, we only went there once much preferring the Gale-based restaurants.

Lovely very close to the beach and wonderful staff

Pros: Lovely staff, great accommodation, spa, pool, 2 minuets from the beach and adults only. I would recommend this for couples and singles.
Cons: I can't really think of anything
Location: Beach is 2 minutes away
This was a last minute booking as I needed somewhere to relax and de-stress. I was not disappointed. I was only there for a a few days but the location was great and the staff were so wonderful. They remember the little details like how you have your breakfast every morning - in my case after my tea I need a coffee. There wasn't anything I could fault. I didn't venture into the old or new town cause I just needed somewhere to recharge. There is a spa on site and the treatments were great - there was a discount while I was there. With the beach only 2 minutes away I was able to go there every day and take nice long walks. I was travelling alone but at no point was I concerned about my safety.

Super Hotel in Strandnähe

Das Hotel, das Essen und die ganze Infrastruktur war einfach super toll. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Essen war fantastisch. Es gab jeden Abend ein 4-Gang Menue oder man konnte à la carte bestellen. Auch das Frühstück war reichhaltig und bot für jeden Geschmack etwas. Die Zimmer sind gross und sehr sauber. Das Hotel ist nicht für Familien mit Kindern geeignet, sondern ehe für "ruhige" Hotelgäste. Das Wasser im Pool war so sauber, wie wir es noch nie in einem anderen Land erlebt haben. Toller Spa und es gibt auch einen Billiardtisch und eine "Bibliothek". Das Hotel liegt in einer ruhigen Nachbarschaft, also nichts für Partygänger oder Leute, die am Abend Aktion suchen. Der Strand ist in unmittelbarer Nähe, keine 100 Meter empfernt. Ein sehr sauberer Strand. Man Liegen und Sonnenschirme mieten (2 Liegen plus Sonnenschirm 15 Euro pro Tag). Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten vorhanden, auch Toiletten und eine Dusche gibt es vor Ort.
