I do not recommend this hotel, it is off the beaten track, you need at least. 20 minutes to the next town and there are except the beach nothing in the area to see. You will need a car. We have three times changed the room, in order to get one, not the ceiling joints and with no hair in the bath lie. The food is for athletes and sportsmen a nightmare. I am fitness trainer and can anybody, the serious sport would recommend, the food to eat there. The dose fruits from the day before (declared than 'fresh fruit' ... wandered in the following day in the yogurt granola. The chairs were partly broken and the hotel has no flair, it is just a meatball. Nice is the beach and the cliffs and if you have a car worth hiking in the mountains absolutely! Result: finger away! read hotel review

In general one can say only not recommendable, if you don't only want to hiking, but also in the hotel. We were in december and it was dead in the hotel. So not the guests, but from the offer. The only thing open was the pool in the tiles already abbröckelten, sauna (very small and maximum 3h on the day). The front desk was not even in the location a bouquet of flowers for my birthday my girlfriend on the breakfast table and a massage could i not give, because everything had. The whole hotel is in need of renovation ... and i would more than one star. We will certainly not more there. read hotel review

    In the morning, there was enough choice, but the dinner i'm a little disappointed. So there was, for example, three days in a row, fries, rice and pasta every day. Spaghetti bollonese you could always food. In addition there was each day fried, always other, but has almost tasted the same. The mashed potatoes from the bag, this has very extremely good. It was clean in the dining room. Until monday you could immediately around 18,30 food, but when all the russians were there, it was so crowded, it, if one has with the side dishes arrived, the meat with the sauce i was cold. It was the best time as against 19, 45/20:00 h. A bottle of water 0.75 liter has 2, 50 Euro cost. The bars i cannot say anything.

    Unfortunately only in english. The rooms were cleaned but the dirt and dust one saw the service, the cleaning lady is once kurzt with the rags gone through. When what next to bedside tables was like, heavier layer of dust and hair. Then i am naturally curious has become, over the bed thick dust layer, on the three pictures also. Only the fehrnsehtisch was clean. Even the refrigerator was cleaned not longer. On the tap were stains have only water offered and they were way. The ducharmatur was very furred up.

    There was no entertainment during the day, not even reduced. The pool was nicely refreshing, but colder than the sea. The hot tub was only from 4:00 p. m. until 7:00 p. m. open. The indoor swimming pool from 9:00 continuous until 7:00 p. m.. But fortunately, there was not a single day of rain, otherwise it would be a little boring. A gym in vain. Weather permitting rasenfussballplatz, large area for kugelstoßen and hammer throw ( leichat. ). Tennis court.

    The hotel is right on the beach. To the airport Faro amount the shuttle 45 minutes. After vilamorra, which so beautiful i did not find one is somewhat more than an hour run. In the other direction is precisely an hour on the beach, not to recommend on the street, is an ascension day and one ran certainly almost 2 hours. The situation i personally was a little quiet, but you could long and extensive walks on the beach. The bus stop was only 200 m away from the hotel, in order to come into the city the way 3, 25 Euro cost.

Short beach holiday in a beautiful area! Per: Great location & unbelievable beautiful surroundings, good food, friendly staff, quite secluded, therefore also very quiet Cons: No child care (loud offer however available), Babysitter service spoke only portuguese (so for our 4-jährigen sohn not an option) Foreign language skills of the staff very low (english mostly only with 'hands & feet') Level or condition of the hotel certainly rather 3 than 4 stars read hotel review

Due to many little schmeichelhafter reviews, i was almost to the extent that the matter back to canceln. Thank god i have not done so. Because it was a fantastic holiday. Even my wife (from Brazil hailing from) was very good. With olimar booked, pick-up in a small van, return also. Very large area. Rooms are very clean, location fantastic. In the middle in Europa a broad, kilometer long beach, where lonely pltze can be found and which also in the high season overcrowded is. The hotel was not ramshackle, but airy and bright. In 1970 he-years style. Me gefällt's. ... and i was on business in so-called top hotels. This moaning about the breakfast i understand. There was everything over fruit. 6 different yogurts and cereals, beans, fried eggs, ham, sausage, cheese. X different kinds of bread and rolls, croissants, small cakes etc. Which should please still missing. Juices, water and cafe in different variants of douwe egberts was also available. We have lunch and evening in small restaurants eaten. There was free wi-fi. In the hotel you have to buy a card. At the reception one was very friendly. Ok, it is not a 5 - or 6 star hotel. See also the favourable price. The price-performance ratio is given the top-location pretty darn good. There is something for people, which no organised mass tourism are looking for. Like long beach walks and the portuguese cuisine will appreciate. Of course there were also people, the whole day at the pool. Only in the face of the top beach in front of the door? We are coming again. And give this hotel a very good touch. Because we were comfortable and that is crucial. The hotel and the adjoining apartments also gladly by high-income portuguese booked. The will also know, why you are so gladly into this hotel and the beach and not elsewhere around the towels at the pool or the best strandplätze scramble. Tourists with such ambitions should just nevertheless better at the 'Ballermann' go. read hotel review

    Clean, functional, relatively large rooms. The room cleaning was very thorough. Every day the towels were changed. The rooms are not very luxuriös furnished. Rather suitable for a beach holiday. Air conditioning system gave it also. But evening comes a fresh breeze, this should not be necessary, these to use. Beautiful gardens. Beach in the immediate vicinity. Couch for 5-10 Euro on the day, depending on the time of day. Or wild (with own umbrella) his place. Very nice surroundings. Jeep-safari try ;-)

    In front of the hotel are three little restaurants, close further. There is a, which every evening a barbeque power, food without line for 10 Euro! Top. Another is top in fish, another is the totally delicious folios. You can also down the beach walking or driving to the nearest village (agua de olhos) or next town of villamoura ca. The food in the hotel is also quite good, we portuguese and brazilian questioned, the good portuguese cuisine understand. Unlike the meckertanten and uncle here, the probably in the week at Aldi shopping and then upset, if they even fresh meat from small farms or fresh fresh from the sea? I can the negative reviews really not understand. Then they should be but please the oriental hotel in Bangkok or something equivalent book.

    Helpful, i speak english and portuguese, next to german. Do not know, whether also the german speaks. Safe costs 2 Euro on the day, if i really remember. Also a Euro have been. Schloss you get the front desk. Very safe location. No crime. Mini-club for the kids there was also, but we were only there as a couple. Room with a view of the country quiet. Rooms with sea view a bit louder, because evenings music and show. But it is also at the latest around midnight peace.

    Fantastic beach situation only by a wooden bridge separated. There was always a light breeze, so it can be bearable. Clear air, very relaxing. You can walk in both directions walking and on the way something to drink and food. Bus stop at the larger supermarket (left 500m from the entrance). Close to the airport, about 35 kilometers. Disadvantage, sometimes probably migrating in Lissabon. Was, did not seem to be the rule.

I was with my friend in this hotel for a seaside holiday. The beach is great nice and highly recommended. The hotel was not. It is very run down, especially the exterior. The rooms are okay, however, our air conditioning was not. After 3 requests for repair, they told us, that we had no other rooms can be offered, since the hotel would be. At the pool there were estimated 60 chairs for 1400 guests. So always early in the morning all the beach chairs occupied. At the beach one pays 15 Euro for 2 beach chairs per day. You ... can already times into account. The restaurant is also much too small for the number of guests, so one is often to, for in the restaurant. If you then is included, you feel like a cafeteria, totally noisy and no atmosphere. The food is okay, but not much choice and the meat also not tasty. The dessert was not chilled. At dinner the drinks are not included, so you can wait until a waiter came. This is rarely the case. English is not their language. The drinks at the beach bar and in the kiosk in the hotel are expensive. Fortunately, about 10 minutes from the hotel a small mini market. Otherwise is nearby practically nothing. After Albufeira one drives about 40 minutes by bus. It is very nice. The hotel is so not recommended. read hotel review

The location of this hotel as regards the distance to the beach not to be topped! The beach is wonderful and quiet. However beat the beach chairs with 15 Euro per day but on the budget; only at the hotel pool were free of charge. The hotel itself is though getting quite old, appears from inside but tidy and well-maintained. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. The room maids do their work, but not necessarily always tidy. Complaints were immediately dealt with and the housekeeping again high skillful. The hotel is suitable for a quiet beach holiday. Around ... the hotel there are no restaurants, bars or the like, which to foot to be achieved. If you want to do something, should rather in the near the centre of Albufeira go, there are more than enough (cost by taxi: 1 5 €simply). Is sad, that the centre of tourists almost taken is; a real portuguese restaurant in vain. You have to outside the become drive. A nice hotel, and an even nicer beach. Anytime again! read hotel review

The hotel is massive ageing, what the blätternden plaster on the exterior to gammligen smell in the rooms and the wood-panelled kellerbereichen (hairdresser, mini club, indoor swimming pool (!) Cannot be ignored. It is however basically clean. The main building has two wings, which will help, since many youth and sports groups in the house and they separated from the 'normal' guests stayed, so it was quite quiet in the house. End may were almost only german guests and a few portuguese guests in the hotel represented. The age average was probably about 50 have lain. Internet in the lobby ... or according to the front desk in the room can purchase a card at the front desk wi-fi can be used, 60 minutes 5 Euro (48 hours valid), 120 minutes 8 Euro (72 hours valid).

    I travel otherwise always Tunisia and am therefore not spoiled by rooms but one experiences still surprises : the rooms are big and seem to, as the hotel robbed and worn again furnished. The ' garderobenbereich' looks like a dirty turnhallengarderobe from the 70. years, it smells in the room after modrigem wood, nothing fits together, the blue chair is faded and stained, the paneling behind the bed, the one really not lean would like. There are only in the bathroom mirror. The curtains are loose and sticky, the atlantic wind hooting of through. The bathroom is against relatively in good condition. The small fridge was loose in the room and worked very well, as well as the tv (ARD).

    In every youth hostel is the food better, richer and more attractive. I am not really picky and happy, if i cooked the, which in this star hotel was offered, was more than questionable. I love sweets and if didn't taste everything, save it generally at least the dessert. These (jelly, artificial creams...) I have not even touched. Salad buffet was ok. The main course was repeated already on day 3 of 5 there were always rice and a fried dish, as well as daily the same matschfisch and 'meat' (but sometimes Schnitzel was, that a thick location breadcrumbs or batter was. In very serious days saved the daily offered pasta with sauce. The breakfast was however great!

You were always already threatening stared, if you approached and after i already on arrival (no greeting, no help with luggage) said, that the german not good is, i have from the beginning english spoken, the matter to facilitate, but that seemed not to be right. Any information was rude and reluctant. Only highlight them and i would like to, that the days of a trip my breakfast and lunch package got, was very nice and convenient. But both thumbs highly. The cleaning of the rooms was split. The room was basically clean but the dust under the bed were considerable, garbage from the previous guest was there still with departure. The chambermaids ignored also beflissentlich the 'please do not disturb-card and hoovered already before 8 o'clock mornings in front of the room. In the restaurant were the language skills significantly better than at the front desk. Until recently was not to penetrate, after which system times times no his room number at the inlet had to let. The tables were delayed until not cleared, so that i as individuals often in the leftovers of the predecessors my meal took. With few exceptions, one felt rather as load and necessary evil given the gesichtsausdrucks of the staff.

    The sport place sets near the hotel during my stay not use, a space was expired, an athletic ground was very well-kept. During the day there was according to the bulletin decent activities offered, i didn't notice anything. The pool looked nice and well maintained, but it was hardly visited. It is in the garden and pool but no umbrellas. On the beach there were toilets and showers, and a bar. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for 10 Euro per day be rented-best bring your own umbrella, but beware, it winds strong. The beach is gorgeous, at high tide but very narrow, so that it in the peak season tight could. But low tide it is amazing to walk along the beach. The absolute plus of the hotel, from the ludicrous tourist infrastructure in and around Albufeira.

    The hotel is massive ageing, what the blätternden plaster on the exterior to gammligen smell in the rooms and the wood-panelled kellerbereichen (hairdresser, mini club, indoor swimming pool (!) Cannot be ignored. It is however basically clean. The main building has two wings, which will help, since many youth and sports groups in the house and they separated from the 'normal' guests stayed, so it was quite quiet in the house. End may were almost only german guests and a few portuguese guests in the hotel represented. The age average was probably about 50 have lain. Internet : in the lobby or according to the front desk in the room can purchase a card at the front desk wi-fi can be used, 60 minutes 5 Euro (48 hours valid), 120 minutes 8 Euro (72 hours valid). The maps were however partly. Out of print. You can use the internet by skype credit or by kreditkartenabbuchung log in.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is located outside from Albufeira directly at the beach - the large plus. There are but 2 mini-markets, a café and the bus stop to Albufeira (2,4 Euro per route) in 5 minutes walking distance. Supplest one is undoubtedly with a rental car, excursions, but of course also with the travel agent or be booked in the hotel. For a beach holiday the location is but absolutely perfect.

The hotel is very recommendable, if one it somewhat more calmly and relaxed wishes. Closest possibilities for evening events (disco, etc.) Are by car about minutes away (Albufeira / vilamoura). The resort offers enough space at the pool, as well as for sunbathing. Particularly to emphasize is the short way to the beach and the possibilities for sport, especially for walking and running. The food is sufficient and varied. The evening meals were often only lukewarm. The service in the hotel is to be described as very good. We recovered very well. read hotel review

Very recommendable hotel, especially for sportsmen, which the immediate location on one of the most beautiful beaches of europe want, however, had drawbacks concerning condition (a renovation would be useful) and comfort of the hotel (rather 3 than 4 stars) in purchase. Important for vacationers is the 'fussy' (!) Cleanliness (for me personally the key characteristic of a hotel ) to the other the (Portugal typical) hospitality of all the staff. Additional information very good for athletes, for example, for the of athletes, suitable (comparisons the hotel description while we were there, there were many national the wurfdisziplinen in the ... camps).! Price-performance ratio: excellent; we have about 25 Euro per day and person with half board paid! read hotel review

The way on decking to the beach is very good and very close. The hotel is very outdated And for us no four stars worth. During dinner wait up to 20 minutes before you get to table and due to the size of the hotel are often four guests together at a table. There was free towels for the pool which one every day to exchange. To be recommended the hotel is for sportsmen. read hotel review

Is already much true written. This was our 2. time in march in the hotel, would also a 3. once, because the location is stunning. Especially there were detailed walks on the beach (at least the 5 kilometer in each direction on the almost deserted beach between villamoura ca and Albufeira) pleased. And where one gets in march already for certain sunburned and can overcome baden.! You can on the disadvantages of the hotel look. Of course it is not star hotel according to german standards, to do so, it would have once again overhaul. It remains an unpleasant ..., but very solid built block from the 80. years, but had the advantage. That the rooms are not clairaudient. They are large, simply furnished, but newly painted, clean (i'm always glad when i don't have a carpet must see) a fantastic view of the ocean, or-if you pass look also at least into nature. Pleased this separation bathroom toilet. Food is in comparison to 2011 in the quality better, in the selection not, but no one didn't starve. The everything in the detailed reviews 2 years ago pointed out. Unfortunately, there were many sports groups during the meals quite loud, otherwise disturb the athletes from all over Europa but not. Friendliness, especially in the restaurant is returned, the waiters are great! Not understand i want the einmalverpackungen (butter, jam and so on.) That is today not any more. Not the hotel i would people recommend, the entertainment and shopping be, the should stay at this exchangeable cities such as Albufeira. Here are all the right, the active, is at the beach and detailed walks, hikes or the Tennis and so on. Wollen. So are all alterkategorien addressed, from abiturklassen're spry pensioners. Still some tips: - englischgrundkenntnisse are necessary, also in the hotel otherwise problems. - rental car very recommendable, in Germany over mietwagenmarkt. De booked for a ridiculous price ( poloklasse without sb for one week = 66 Euro from, to airfield! Otherwise you are very expensive trips in the hotel Rely on. Gps please take away, also facilitate that the driveway. Tour assistance To loule in the hinterland, beautiful market hall every morning, a big market on saturday, cafes where one still under portuguese sits To Lagos, nice pedestrianised area still quite typical, beautiful rocky inlets right at the city exit with spectacular photo motifs Right next to the airport Faro, by car 5 minutes, on the offshore sandbanks beautiful tierbeobachtungen and directly at the beach one last dorade for circa 7 Euro enjoy. The best there was next to the indoor market in loule. And then we are at the main argument for Portugal and especially for this hotel, Besides in Croatia i have never such a good value for money experienced, at least off-season. There must be a reason, that this hotel costs less than hotels with 2 or 3 stars. And that leaves me then over small things aside and this hotel also would not hesitate to recommend. We felt at home! read hotel review

On tv there were a few german channels and there was also in the room a small refrigerator. Safe can one also rent. The room overall seemed however somewhat 'old' and cool from the furnishing.

    From Faro it is a good minutes by car until to the hotel. In the off season were lots of restaurants and supermarkets in in the area completely closed. One had good 35 minutes on foot walk, to the first supermarket to arrive. Shopping and night life is therefore also zero in in the area. Either one rents a car or must go with the bus. During the week this right is regularly, but in the evening only to shortly after 18 o'clock. Is anyway, overall rather quiet.
