Definately not a five star hotel

06 Nov 2019
I was expecting much more from this hotel, it does not warrant a 5 star rating. The reception staff were amazing, extremely friendly and genuinely happy to chat about places to visit locally and...

3rd stay there as great value. Such a shame that the hotel bar is so poorly stocked and the fresh squeezed oranges are no longer available at the equally poor pool side bar. It's clean, friendly with excellent reception staff. Will definitely go again but getting used to the poor bar!

More sun loungers needed and pool cleaning more regularly but this was a lovely hotel generally and I would definitely recommend it.

It was ok as we did not use many amenities or activities of the hotel. Overall stay was ok. Staff generally were polite and pleasant. Apartments were as expected for 4 star hotel. Some of the furniture was worn out and need replacing/upgrading. Location of the hotel was good - being in a quieter part of town and near to other areas of interests. Pool amenities/loungers/sun umbrellas were in short supply and people tend to reserve the loungers next to pool a night before despite hotel not being fully occupied. We were ok as we went out to explore other places in town or beaches.

This was not a 5* hotel. All Inclusive package was poor compared to other hotels. No water or drinks available until 12. Not much choice for the restaurant food, same desserts every night just displayed differently. Service in restaurant slow to clear and set tables and restock the food trays. Not enough sun beds around the pool area. I would not recommend this hotel and have stayed in better hotels in Albufeira.

Very friendly staff and fantastic facilities in the apartments. The rooms are huge with washing machine, dishwasher and fridge/freezer in the kitchen. The lounge and bedroom have large tv's with bbc1, bbc2, ITV and channel 4. We went all inclusive and although the food was very good, there wasn't a huge choice. If I had one criticism it would be that there weren't enough parasols in the pool area. 13 parasols between 100 beds isn't any where near enough! The hotel is kept extremely clean and the location is superb as it's between the old town and the strip and a little land train stops right outside the hotel taking you to both places.

Very clean apartments. All mod cons. Helpful staff. Took out a 3 day pass to gym, swimming, sauna etc, facilities are good but would be better if they were included. Tried meal in hotel one night but not impressed. However tried the expresso restaurant down the road and the meal was excellent and also reasonable price. Would recommend the apartment.

Very safe, clean and well run apartments. Entertainment by the pool on certain days, kids club 3 days a week, entertainment every night in the bar. Could not fault this accommodation! Travelled with a young family and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Beds very uncomfortable and small in the studio rooms. Smaller than any bed I have ever stayed in at a hotel and very lumpy and could feel springs. The staff were nice and did add bedding to it so by my third night it was comfortable but still tiny and definitely not what you would find in any 5 star hotel. Rooms very clean and spacious. Big kitchen with all the things you need.

The entrance lobby was lovely. The staff were excellent and really warm, welcoming and went out of their way to assist. The breakfast was ok but if you go late the warm food has been sitting there for ages so is over cooked. The bar is quite nice but it is so dark and hot. It's not an appealing place to sit in and it's a shame it's not opened up to the outdoors more. The outdoor bar isn't always open and closed by 5pm. Also the hotel bar would stop entertainment by midnight for the guests but I found that odd as we were the guests who were sitting in there. I think most people don't mind noise at a holiday place even if it is after midnight, but perhaps that's just my opinion.

I would still give 4 stars because the staff really made the stay nice and I had a good stay except for the beds!

We have stopped in these apartments about six times now. I would rate it a good 4 star not five. Rooms are very clean but I think they need up dating a bit now.

Lovely hotel, clean throughout. All staff very friendly. Massive rooms with English tv channels, toiletries and towels provided. Kitchen with fridge/freezer and washing machine. Everything you need. Wouldn't say its 5 star luxury but definitely all you need for a relaxing holiday and would stay there again with no hesitation.

We had not been on an holiday for some years and this was an experience we were glad to have. The hotel was stunning and the room we had was out of this world, room 110. When we arrived the curtains were closed, then when we pulled them back the sight opened our eyes, a lovely view of the pool and the poolside area. The rooms were of plentiful size and the kitchen was of a good size, fridge freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, 4 ring hob, microwave and other items. The bedroom had 2 great sized wardrobes with drawers bedside cabinets and a 42 inch tv. The living room had table and 4 chairs, sofa/bed, 2 nice leather chairs and another 42 inch tv. This hotel will be hard to beat, part of the M G Muthro group, they have another 3 within a mile radius and a bus service within the group to the old town running every few hours. The pool was of a great size and 1.43 metres deep, when swimming in top pool the water runs over the wall into the lower pool, same depth. The pool maintenance team were out just after 08.00 to clean and wash down around the pool area and after 20.00 to tie down umbrellas and clear the bins. Morning breakfast, vast choice of cereals, yoghurt, fruit and grilled/fried items, choice of a few coffees,teas and juices. Deposit for a safe, situated in the wardrobe, 20 euros for a week and worth it. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were cleaned daily, except Sunday.
