    The distance to the beach was fine... By a long footbridge. The beach was very clean, fine sand and wide. Annoying was, that a sun hat with 2 couches and editions 13 Euro per day and few cost and that from 7 october of which despite Great weather nothing more was available. The hotel has everything Clearing leave. Supposedly a regulation of local Police. The distance to the airport-about 45 minutes. The next town... Monte Gordo was about 4 kilometers away and one could it well through a beach walk directly by the water away. Shopping and night life was in altura none... There one should already after Albufeira drive. Trips cannot one make... But so much worth seeing there were not... You should definitely rent a car, to get to the other towns. Restaurants and snackbars there are some in the town and also elsewhere. They are very reasonably priced and good. For next bus station one must already a few hundred meters walk.

    We had half board. The breakfast was completely sufficient. However one had with sausage and cheese had the impression as if they would come from frischhaltepackungen. The dinner in buffet form was tasty... But the choice for a 4 star hotel a bit poor. The dining room was very clean. The drinks, based on the prices of the surrounding Snack bars and restaurants, relatively expensive.

The hotel was located quite remote directly on the dunes to the beach, at the end of the town. You can book halfboard or only overnight accomodation with breakfast. It offers free wi-fi in the rooms and in the hotel area, at the pool there were enough beach chairs, on the beach the beach chairs are not free. A restaurant, a bar, a small snack bar and a beach bar at the hotel, unfortunately all with very extortionate prices. Otherwise there was a reading room with 2 computers and a spa area, but also very high prices to pay. Many ... guests were rather older people, many british, german and dutch, among younger were mainly portuguese. The audience was rather quiet. The cleanliness and the style of the rooms, as well as the quality of the food are simply too bad for the price, the is required. Bewertung lesen

    The standard rooms are very small, with tiled floors. The furniture is very worn and chipped. Around the bed is a grey-brown carpet, the unfortunately totally filthy was, and very unappetizing looked and smelled. Why not simply away, is me a mystery. The mattresses were unfortunately totally worn out, and under the sheets also very dirty and stained. There is a big cupboard for the clothes, unfortunately full of cobwebs. Tv was available, with satellite channels, there was a selection of channels from different countries. A refrigerator is present, with some bottles and minibar, also here - stay away, grossly overpriced. Balcony is only usable, if the neighbor room no air conditioning, the outdated equipment make noise as a truck. The bathroom is very narrow, 2 people could not in the bathroom. Unfortunately it was very fossil and the mold blooms in the corners. And the rooms are poorly soundproofed. Use a neighbor next door or above the toilet, one gets the rooms live with.

    The location is for those seeking peace vacationers excellent. The beach is wonderful and not too crowded. For a beach holiday exactly the right thing. For excursions is a rental car a good idea, since in the surrounding area not many stores or restaurants were. The hotel offers a large parking lot, the free use.

    At the front desk a neutral. The reception is always occupied, and who nachfrägt get polite response. English of all is spoken very well, some of the staff can also speak german. However, you all the information itself. Check-in, there was no information, neither towels, nor over wi-fi, no information where everything was, no information about the shuttle bus service, or that you pool chairs on the beach at the hotel can reserve. The room cleaning was miserable. The bed was made each day, but despite a request from the sign was no new bed sheets. The bathroom was in 14 days whole 4 once mopped, on the other days was the dirt. If you walked through the room barefooted, you got black feet! And it got me now with the old 'you have to stop times tip give.' I normally every holiday very generous tip for the maids, but if after 2 days already expected, that the bill on the bedside table is, before again cleaned, in a 4 star hotel an impertinence! The service in the restaurant is hectic, and rude

    The food was just mass processing with the cheapest from cheap. Hardly any fresh, only canned food and ready-to - cook meals. Even the scrambled eggs were from powder touched. The bread was always dry, i had not even experienced, that fresh bread for breakfast. The dinner was even worse. No variation, only convenience food, bad heated and in the case of the soups also watered down, carelessly in the warming clapping. The vegetables from the freezer, always mushy cooked and tasteless, meat tough, and fish dry. The use of spices saved you completely. Not once there was fresh fish or fresh mussels, there was in every eckkneipe in Portugal delicious dishes with fresh seafood! Desserts were always only the same ready-cakes and every day the same fruit, äfpel, melon, pineapple... During the quality of the food and service 1 star are, you have the prices for the drinks from the 5 - star standard, for example costs 0.2 liter orange juice whole 3,75 Euro! Why also always, it was usual, that the guests wait in front of the restaurant left, although inside still plentifully free tables were, but there was no explanation for this behavior.

    Shuttle 45 minutes over the highway, otherwise 60 minutes on the national road. Shopping rather in tavira or Monte Gordo, in altura only a few supermarkets and restaurants, from the end of september shows suddenly, that the season is over. The beach is already much reduced, unfortunately also the trash can.

    We only booked with breakfast, because the dinner from 7:30 p. m. is too late. Nice is the terrace in front of the dining room, so you can always sit outside. Unfortunately is on the terrace the smoking allowed, so you as a non-smoker often in the smoke of the neighbors sat. Breakfast is after two weeks, unfortunately, somewhat monotonous. Prices for beverages are very expensive in the hotel. Large beer 4 Euro, glass of wine 2,80 Euro.

    From the management to the maid were we only friendly and our desires open to staff met. The guest is very attentive and accomodating acts, for which two specific examples are: We were first in a room on the 1. floor quartered, which our originally with the reservation over its expressed desire, in a upper floor to be accommodated, contrary to state. Since the hotel on arrival but was fully booked, was here only once, do nothing to change. After talking with the front desk and the hotel manager, however we were moved on 2. day room on the 10. floor, whereas it also a larger room than what we originally booked double room was. A charge for this was not required. To my birthday i found a fruit basket and a bottle of sparkling wine in the room with glückwüschen from the side of the hotel. For complaints know there is no reason, they were resolved, before there is any reason for this would have given.

    The hotel is situated on the beach and borders directly at the dunes, the beach is through the garden gate directly to reach over a footbridge. The beach itself is about 50-200 meters wide (depending on section and on tide times), bright and fine sand and is ideal for long walks on the beach (circa 6 kilometer in both directions), of course, also best conditions for a pure beach holiday. To be highlighted was the cleanliness of the beach, it is meticulously maintained and has many strandgaststätten lined, so is a refreshment on the way, a toilet and other amenities always within touching distance. Restaurants, bars and supermarkets are in the proximity, from shopping to talk would however be exaggerated. Also a night life we did not notice. Here is the those seeking relaxation or the pure bathing correctly waived. Due to its close proximity to the spanish border are excursions both to Sevilla and Cádiz, as also in the direction of the other places in the portugisischen Algarve possible.

    The restaurant was very clean and with outside terrace. However, the places on the terrace were mostly occupied, often with smokers. Food buffet style with fish and all. As a vegetarian i must the food in relation to the variety was rather bad rate, since even the pasta and rice with meat or wursten puts were. Vegetarians is often only fries. At spices in preparation hardly or even not used. Prices of the drinks on german level.

    Central to the town. Within walking distance, are supermarket, restaurants and snack bars. As diort were already many stores were closed, therefore made altura the impression of a ghost town. In the high season but also no place with night life. Beach walk through the dunes in 300 meters away. Great rfeinsandiger beach with beach bar and water sports. (far stretching and especially at low tide very wide). For excursions with the car rather poor, since altura not centrally located in the Algarve is.
