Fantastic, great hotel, staff very helpful. Stayed in a studio apartment, brilliant looking out over the roundabout with sea view and pool view. Great.

Having visited Fort Do Vale Apartments on two previous occasions I was looking forward to returning. Unfortunately things were not the same, while the apartment public areas were clean and well maintained the rooms and furnishings were in poor condition; towels torn and threadbare and room cleaning was minimal with sheets only changed when beds were left unmade (once in 7 nights). The pool was well maintained with ample sunbeds and reception staff courteous. Things need to improve from 3 star to 5 star before I return.

Apartments where spotless and cleaned 8 out of the 10 days we stayed. Really well equipped with everything you could need, staff were friendly enough and there was a free bus service to the new town which was handy. The only downfall would have been the entertainment in hotel; it was ok if you where a pensioner but not so good for young families. All in all we would definitely stay here again.

Rooms immaculate, very spacious and like home from home! Only one downside was the one outdoor pool and total lack of working sun beds. It didn't spoil our break as it was a mini break and we were more interested in exploring but I could see the frustration in other guests faces.

It is about a 5minute walk to the strip, which is a buzzing lively street of never ending bars and restaurants. It is about 20 minute walk to Albufeira old town, which is wonderful, lively but some lovely bars and restaurants.

Fast check in at reception. Rooms large and spacious. Beds rock hard, so I asked for a duvet to be fitted under sheet which made it more comfortable. About 20 minutes from old town and 15 minutes to strip. Not too far to nearest beach. Nice sandwich stops on the way down.

The apartments are big, bright and spotless. They were cleaned everyday, the staff were really friendly and helpful. The location was great for both the old town and the strip.

These apartments were excellent - We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. The size of the rooms are excellent - cleanliness first class - tea towels/ bathroom towels all changed every day. The reception staff - bar staff and cleaning staff were all so friendly. We could not comment on the food in the restaurant as this was closed for end of season - although you could have bar food in the bar which we did not try as we were self catering and only there for 4 nights. The location is quite good too, strip and old town. The Forte Da Vale has a courtesy bus which leaves every 15 minutes and takes you to their other resorts in the area so this gets you to the strip without walking. Had an excellent holiday there.

Great having a washing machine means you can pack a lot less. Great location, away from hubbub but close enough if you wanted liveliness.

Apartments very spacious, well maintained and excellent cleaning carried out daily; Sundays just bins. Pool freezing (it was May, start of season and had several days of rain), loungers satisfactory.

Staff in all departments friendly and helpful, pool staff under pressure at lunchtimes. Location brill between the strip and old town, walkable to either, steep hill back from old town but treat yourself to a Taxi 5.00 euro.

Excellent all round, they are large, clean, modern and well equipped. You will struggle to find better. Fantastic location midway between old town and strip. This was our second visit and we are going back next year.

The pool water (outside) is cold however the one in the spa is warm but is extremely small. The location is good if you eat at the hotel and not make your own food because, the supermarket is far away. The beach is just down the road. The rooms were nice and they were cleaned properly. At breakfast there was not much food for a vegetarian because my mum had to just eat fruit and that was it. There were no children TV channels so that was useless.
