Rooms cleaned daily, pools clean - facilities adequate. Food ok, not enough choice, ate out most nights. Bar drinks ok though served with flat bottled pops. Bar staff, staff very friendly, helpful.
Guests are very poor, no consideration to others, guests make hotel appear rough, guests just there to get drunk. Our time was spent away from hotel as much as possible. Would never go back to this hotel.

Been here before, prices creep up. Despite my being early for breakfast they have a knack of cooling it. Free wi-fi is a plus although it is in most of the town.

Nice location on the beach, not luxurious just adequate. If you are a TV addict then look elsewhere. All inclusive attracts drinkers so beware. We had the lads playing funky house music at 3am but the staff will be firm with them, still ruins your sleep.

Rooms spacious and clean, cleaner was in every day. Staff were friendly, entertainment everyday for kids and adults. Couldn't fault anything for the price, right on the beach and close to both old town and new town. Will definitely be back.

Very basic 3 star budget hotel, no frills here. It was our 3rd stay. At half term there was 3 of us and it totalled £440 with flights and all inclusive so a bargain. Other family paid £1800 for half term so book it yourself is my tip. This time we did 9 days for the 3 of us again all inclusive, paid £540 total. It's very cheap but basic, if you want anything more luxurious try the sister hotel Aura-mar. People there complaining because travel agents had charged them 3 grand for a fortnight, ripped off. Do it yourself. We did only get clean towels daily, beds were not changed once in the 9 days, only made the beds for you, no clean sheets. Also the hotel has a steep bank so you're up and down, many steps around it and uneven cobbled terraces, so you do need to be fit to be at the hotel. Not ideal for toddlers or prams or elderly and unsteady, be prepared. If you want cheap value then this is it.

There is very mixed opinions on this hotel. Let me explain. We have just been for out second visit to this hotel, two adults and one child, we paid 175 for three return Ryanair flights and 260 for the hotel, one bed apartment so total half term holiday was 435 pound. That's not each, that's all inclusive for 3 people. Bargain if you ask us. Basic hotel, repetitive food (we've had worse), beachfront location, indoor and outdoor pool, kids club ran until Saturday 31st October, my lad did archery, boules and tennis so it was cheap and good enough for us as we're on a budget. However, there was people there that paid that amount each travelling with jet2holidays and they were not happy at all. The Albufeira floods happened while we were there, rooms leaking during the heavy rain, but it was torrential and not the usual rain. I am a big coffee drinker and the drinks dispensers were awful. Beer very weak but all in all it was cheap and we can't grumble. Large queues at lunch and dinner, restaurant not coping too well at busy times, would run out of bowls, plates, cutlery etc and sometimes they would ask if you'd like a drink and other days you didn't get one, very poor staff service. We tried also to let the reception know that our ground floor room had leaks coming through so we just told them incase the upstairs room was flooded out if it was empty-they just said "all rooms are leaking", we were just trying to let them know to be helpful but I don't think they know how to accept help or even be helpful in return. Staff were very miserable and unhappy in their work. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk to the strip, probably 20 minutes into the old town. The hotel staff never work as a team, on check in I asked after the kids clubs and activities and the lady on reception said she thought that was just in the summer, but suggested if we walked around the pool areas we may find out more!!!! Ha ha ha, you had to laugh at them. There was kids stuff but apparently the hotel does not have any knowledge of it or has literally nothing to do with that side of it. It has nothing to do with the restaurant side either, very unusual set-up. The sister hotel up the road has facilities you can use but they don't tell you that either! It's the Auramar and it's lovely, there's a shortcut straight up the side and it's far nicer but more pricey. We went up inquiring and found it better altogether. PS it's says there's wifi but it's very weak or non existent in reception only, when there were people all trying to get internet it didn't work, if it was quiet you did get a little bit. You could buy internet dongle, from reception, think it was 30 euro refundable deposit and from 5 euro per day. We didn't get it so can't comment on that further. Sun loungers made your back ache a bit as they were very old and bowed in the middle just through wear and tear. Just need new ones as outdoor area is very nice.

Food ok, studio room we stayed in needed upgrade urgently and if you don't like steps and steep ramps keep away. Dining room staff very poor service . We went all inclusive, at the bar always a queue, not in any hurry to serve you, needed more staff on. One positive they cleaned the room daily.

It wasn't as near to the old town Albufeira as we thought it was. Our apartment was over the road from the hotel and because we had to go up to the top floor we had a lot of stairs to climb. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

The room was cleaned every day. The communal areas around the apartments eg stairs were often very dirty. The pool area was very crowded and untidy. Most of the sun beds were dirty and totally worn.

Do not stay all inclusive. Food is poor and the restaurant is too hot to sit in.
