The night we arrived at the hotel the guy at the reception told us that there has been some kind of water damage in our room, so we had to move to another (4*) hotel that had a spa and everything. At least that's what he told us. In fact, we had to spend the night in an average hotel that was far away from the city center (15 minutes by car). So the staff member lied to us just to make us move to the other hotel. The view from the terrace was very nice though ;)


My stay at this hotel was disappointing. It has an excellent location but the cleaniness of the rooms and social areas is very poor. The staff are nice, some are more helpful than others. The pool area is pleasant but very poorly maintained. I think there are probably better places to stay in the area.


Very Very basic. You get what you pay for. Very noisy late at night. Balcony doors very insecure. We only needed a bed to lay our head so that was fine for us. Close to the old town. Overall it did the job but wouldn't stay again.

For the cheapest room, the room was a good size, had everything you'd expect (towels, soap, wifi, breakfast..) it was also en suite, however the light in the bathroom was very dim, and the shower was more like a hose pipe, but proved to do the job quite well... I honestly doubt any other hotel in the area has the same amazing breakfast views, and the location is perfect. It was the first time either of us had stayed and we definitely would stay again.

My girlfriend and I strongly recommend this small low cost hotel. They have the same price as an hostel but they have privacy in the rooms. Our holidays were a real honeymoon in Albufeira. We booked a room with balcony with the best view facing the sea. We recommend!
