Everything else was fab.
They made our beds but never changed the sheets for the week. Thought it odd
No smoking on balcony which is not fair
Not enough smoking areas
The hotel left a gift of a bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolate for an anniversary gift. We were so impressed with them. They also gave us a room with a sea view. Really couldn't fault the hotel, staff or facilities.
- Breakfast was excellent; the best thing in this hotel was the breakfast, many varieties from everything, they even had a healthy corner and fresh orange juice. The breakfast restaurant was also amazing (indoor/outdoor on the pool). - Room was very good; we booked the deluxe room with pool and ocean view which was amazing (please check the cons as well for few points). - Location; With respect to Algarve; Albufeira is in the middle of Algarve, which makes it easier for day trips to different Algarve cities. With respect to Albufeira; it is in a very good location if you are targeting "The Strip" and some beaches with scenic views (Oura, Oura Leste, Santa Eulaila) but not the main Albufeira old town (please check cons for additional information). - Staff; they were very informative and helpful, they can understand what you need. All recommended activities and restaurants by them exceeded our expectations. Thanks a lot to all of you. - The hotel works with a good car rental company (Visa car rental) and multiple touring companies, and you can book directly from the hotel. Bonus: Special thanks to the hotel for the lovely surprise; we were travelling on our wedding anniversary, and upon returning from the beach the first day we found a bottle of Champagne, Strawberries, and Chocolate in our room, and a lovely card wishing us a happy anniversary!
Room facilities; Nespresso machine in the room was not working, and unfortunately was not fixed during our stay. Room condition; some of the furniture were a little bit worn out especially the bathroom counter, but take into consideration that the furniture is new and it is expected to wear out fast since it is a coastal area and the furniture is made of wood, but that was not a problem at all. Location; it is far from Albufeira old city and Pescadores beach (main beach of Albufeira) around 30 mins walking, and there is a hill climb on the way back which adds additional 5 mins. Although there is a bus station 1 min walking from the hotel, but it was useless as the bus schedule is unclear and one time we waited for 30 mins and the bus didn't show up! Recommendation: rent a car or use Uber for transports to save time. Note: Despite these very few cons, the hotel is lovely and we enjoyed our stay very much. We will definitely go back there if we ever go again to Algarve.
