Arrived at 9.25pm to be told the room was sold because we were late. we had read reviews regarding the 8pm check in limit and so had notified of 'late' arrival, but this doesn't work either. No where to stay first night even though we had paid weeks in advance for a week. Not allowed to check in until 2pm the following day. This also happened to 3 other couples during that week. Our holiday was ruined.
The only good thing about these apartments is the location and the view from the plunge pool terrace.
Our room was very tired and not very clean.
I actually felt sorry for the receptionists having to put up with the daily fiasco . After all 'they only work there'
Unless you want stress on holiday don't stay here.

Stayed: September 2017

We booked the apartment for 3 nights, the check latest time is 8pm there, make sure you arrive earlyer if not they will take your money and will leave you on the street for that night.You will be able to come ther enext day from 2 oclock only, and they will never return your money for previuos night! Worst place ever, the manager the staff are incredibly rude , couldnt help us , as we arrived to the apartment reception at 9pm as our flight was late, we couldnt predict that ! so they didnt let us sleep there that night, took our money of the card , could help us to find a tleast another hotel! ruined our holiday totally! we had to search to find another hotel , that took us 3 hours because most of the were fully booked on such short period !

Room Tip: Dont choose any, its dirty, smelly rip off!

We stayed here for 11 nights in June with our 2 boys aged 5 and 10. We have been going to albufeira twice a year for 5 years now and this hotel is definitely in the best location. Just at the bottom of the main square but far enough back so no noise from the nightlife. Arrived with yellowfish transfers excellent service as always. Greeted by Elenora on arrival at reception and shown to our 1 bedroom apartment. Room was fit for it's purpose. Clean and comfortable. Cooking facilities, iron and ironing board, TV and 1 aircon unit in the bedroom. 1 bedroom apartments don't have balconies which I wasn't aware of before booking. But we don't spend a lot of time sitting in our room so this was ok. You do need to ring the hotel in advance if your flight arrives in the evening as your room could be sold if you miss the checkin window. Ours was ok as it was an afternoon flight. The children loved the roof top pool. Perfect depth for kids they could both reach the bottom. Small pool but we had it to ourselves for the first week. Not a lot of space for sunbathing but lovely view of the town. Kids made use of the free wifi in the bar. Bar was basic but could be great if they provided a wider range of drinks and started doing bar snacks. We used the Portuguese restaurant just underneath the hotel. Really lovely meal with a drink for less than €12. I have no complaints about this hotel it's very good value for money and provides a clean base from which to explore. The staff were all so good and my children loved chatting to them everyday. Eleanora and Jon in reception do a fantastic job. I have already booked again for the half term school holiday in November. See you soon guys!

Placed right in the centre of the old town, however apartments need updating. The basic of everything and you could end up facing the car park. After asking for a room with balcony we were happily moved (even though I requested when booking). It was better to be on a higher floor too. The lovely Italian receptionist Elenora was always happy to help. We would go back to this area but would pay a little more for more superior apartments.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, balcony
