Our room was facing the beach. Beautiful spot. The view was spectacular and the deck was great for yoga in morning and drinks at night. Two teens slept on twin beds in front room facing the ocean. Husband and I slept on double bed in back room. Had breakfast every morning in the unit.
The place felt run down. The bathroom had an odor that permeated the whole unit even with the door closed and fan on. It was explained to me that the sea level causes the odor but in any case, the smell was nauseating. Our hostess was gracious about it and had bath cleaned but odor quickly came back. Also, the location was very loud—lots of screaming and partygoers late at night. Very much a busy tourist town.
The location great, away from the noisy street as they are all at the back of the building. The hotel building is just the beginning of the old Albufeira town and the start of the long narrow streets with thousands of restaurants and bars and markets stalls. The room is big enough and it could easily fits four. Kitchen fully fitted. The hostess Frederica was very nice and friendly, quick check in which is on the side from the first tourist attraction booking office. Easy transfer to Faro airport, by taxi booking form her. Good view from the balcony. It’s recommended to do a big siesta then long stroll out for late evening is when the party or hustle bustle, for hundreds of places to chose from fro diner. You can even do a long walk to The Strip via the coastal road or by Uber. We prefer the old town as you can also party till super late and there’s much more clubbing bars places here too, all walking distance from the hotel. In the morning it’s very quiet, hotel is opposite the big escalator where you can see hundreds of tourist in and out of Albufeira old town. Food and drinks good prices you need to wander around and chose what you want. Drinks very cheap. Every5hing is on the doorstep, supermarket everywhere, everything stays open till super late.
We travel from Lisbon by Alfa pendular train super quick comfortable journey, had to wait like 35 mins for bus to Albufeira bus station where you have to change for another smaller bus which does takes long to arrive, but we Uber for €3 for like 6km down the coast where you’ll have to walk as no driving in the old town. From the bus station which is dead quiet place then you arrive in middle of the old town the music, crowd, it’s buzzing , prepare for a sudden change. Noise was ok, once you balcony door is close. Day time noise due to the kids racing area in front of the hotel , it’s not bad as it was UK playlist all day till quiet late at night. Beach was not that crowded as weather was not that warm but ok for walk.
I couldn’t fault the apartment, the location, cleanliness, quiet at night, the view, everything was spot on, absolutely no complaints and I’d go back in the morning. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
