    Very well set out with lovely views over the old town. Steps up and down to the main square are not for the faint hearted.

    We stayed here for 6 nights, and were very happy. The staff were incredibly helpful, and very friendly. The accommodation was clean, and everything we needed was there. The balcony overlooks the pool which is most inviting. We will most definitely be back

    Overall good stay

    Overall stay was quite good - very nice property, although the primary complaint is that it was very hard to find from reception. The staff made it seem like it was right around the corner when in fact, it was almost a 360 degrees - all the way around. Also, they said parking was easy on the premise - when we finally found the gate, which was wide open in any case, just a few cars in the small area, however, had we parked there, we would have been entirely blocked in by other guests given the small area. However, we were able to park on the street without issue, the apartment was very large - only a small bar of soap (no shampoo), but otherwise very comfortable and 10 mins walk into the main area of nightlife, though far enough to be quite quiet and relaxing.

    Nice Location, Facilities and Cleaning can improve

    The place is overall very nice however there’s a lot of room for improvements. The studio we ere given we were ensured it was good for 3 people, which would have been enough if the 3rd bed was not a bed on the floor with a flat mattress. I did call before booking and was ensured the 3rd bed was going to be there, upon arrival we had to ask for a proper bed which was still not as comfortable as the other 2. The cleaning was quite poor every other day, very superficial and in fact on our last 2 nights we were scared to death by cockroaches, huge cockroaches that we had to call the night security. We were told there was going to be a deep clean the same day which didn’t happen and it was our last day so we were out most of the day. Staff was overall nice but as the place is nice, as well as the location (5 minutes walk to the centre of Albufeira) they could do a bit more especially in terms of bars and cleaning. There’s another building, couple of blocks further down that has a jacuzzi and a nicer swimming pool but we only found it on our last night. I would book in the other block next time for sure.

    Our room was big enough for 4 of us with a fully equipped kitchen and a huge balcony with great sea views. The grounds were well landscaped and very clean and we enjoyed the swimming pool. The hotel was a 10 minute walk from the old town. The staff were friendly and helpful. Altogether, this was a good choice and we enjoyed our holiday here.
