Hollidays

Great week of solo vacation. Property near the beaches. Easy to park the car...

The restaurant "Varanda", on site is very good and the staff are very attentive. The apartment was spotlessly clean. Cleaning was done daily during the week. And, very important for me, there was a capsule coffee machine.

TripAdvisor Review

Great resort, awful accommodation.

Review by joeycoco79 Chippenham, United Kingdom

It’s easy to see how this complex gives itself 4 stars as the complex itself is great. The pools are well maintained, the shop is useful but expensive and the staff are friendly. The pool bars are good, also expensive but to be expected...

It’s a great place to take kids in a perfect location for the beach and for albufeira.

The rooms are awful. They are dated and dirty. The beds are old, filthy and uncomfortable and the blankets they give you are so old and tired. None of the kitchen stuff matches or is in a full set. The coffee machine was absolutely disgusting with spider webs in. The fridge was rusty. There were cockroaches in the bathroom. Etc etc. they moved us to a superior apartment when we complained about the cockroaches but it was more average than superior. It was cleaner though and the beds slightly comfier.

We did have a grey holiday but probably wouldn’t visit again until the rooms are updated.

Good value for money

Great stay and enjoyed our stay. The apartment we stayed in was 339, overlooking the pool and near the pool bar. The room was comfortable and had everything you needed for your stay...

Shower was lovely. Beds comfortable enough. It was ok - not stunning but ok and I was happy enough. I loved having a large balcony with sun loungers . Plus we had all the channels on the tv including sky sports which was great as the wales football game was on - great for my husband whilst I finished getting ready!

The supermarket is just outside the resort. The resort is kept very clean and tidy. The cleaners came very 2 days with fresh towels and made the beds. The pool areas were very nice with plenty of Sun loungers at all times. The resort was 20 min walk to the strip but we preferred the old town which was 15 minutes in a taxi - approx 6/7 euros each way or villamoura, which was approx 20 mins in a taxi and cost about 15 euros each way. Tip: Go to the reception and order a taxi - they are cheaper than getting Ubers and we found they come quicker ! Couldn’t comment on the restaurant as we didn’t eat there but the food by the pool is fine for breakfast and snacks.

My husband played a bit of golf and said the clubhouse was very nice. Good driving range too. He went off for a couple of days on his own and played at the bigger resorts too.

I have to mention when we first walked into our apartment it did smell of stale smoke so the previous occupiers must have been smokers. I went straight to the supermarket and bought lots of air fresheners and the smell did eventually go away. Also we only had air con in the bedroom. Living room had only one fan and it got very hot in the nights so not sure you could sleep on the sofa bed as you would be too hot!

For the price we paid for the holiday I was happy with our stay and would definitely come again.

Great Location

Staff: everyone we had spoken too was very friendly. My friend and I went for her birthday and another friends’ wedding. The hotel staff had kindly organised some drink and chocolates (at an additional cost) for us in the room...

As we were celebrating a birthday they also put some balloons up on the ceiling which my friend appreciated.

The room: we stayed in apartment 316. Very clean and spacious. Modern bathroom. Two balconies looking onto the kids pool. The only problem we had was most days coming into the room it would smell of sewage.

The grounds: very well kept and clean. Multiple pools to choose from which was great. Would be amazing if one of them was a ‘quiet’ or adults only pool

Food: Went to the main restaurant late in the day of arrival and I had asked for a Cesar salad (which was on the menu) with some grilled chicken mixed with it . I’m not sure if it was a language barrier with the waitress but what turned up was a standard house salad (cucumber, lettuce, tomato) with a piece of bland grilled chicken on a separate plate which I ended up paying £15 for!! We went for a buffet breakfast which had a good selection of hot and cold foods. We also had food from the pool bar which was tasty.

Location: Short uber journey to the strip and the old town and a short walk to a lovely beach. A bit of a walk to get to the nearest restaurant but I would recommend getting an Uber to the old town which has plenty of choice.

Overall I would recommend this hotel and I would stay again :)

LOTS of hidden charges

Review by Ukstoke Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom

I'll be very fair, if it wasn't for hidden charges we would be scoring this 4 or 5. It's very clean, well presented and maintained.

HOWEVER...

2 hours of kids club = 5 euros per child. We have 3...

We didn't use it, but if we didnt it would be 150 extra euros per holiday.

Tennis - wanted to play. Nobody on the 4 courts. However, for 2 adults and 2 children it is 28 euros! Play 3 times and that's another €100.

No shuttle bus as advertised - be aware!

Gym - have to pay.

Just charge a set price and include these items. This prevents additional unexpected costs and disappointed children.
