The comfort instalations.
Everyone was so polite and obliging.
Quiet in the evenings. Large apartment. Two balconies. Fully equipped kitchen. British channels on TV.
Paying for a safe. Poor hotel transport to beach and town. No facilities on balcony to sunbathe.
Apt was very spacious & lovely decor kitchen was excellent washing machine, dish washer,it had everything you'd need. 5 mins walk from spar shop so could get everything we needed for self catering hol. The beach was only 5-10 mins walk & if you walked along the beach you ended out on the old town. Overall great apts great location (halfway from new & old town) & would def stay again
The beds & sofa beds were awful and the pillows were the worst I've ever had
Superb 1 bedroomed apartment with every convenience, spacious and spotless. Staff were all efficient and caring. Gym, pools bar etc all great. Courtesy shuttle bus to "Old Town" and sister hotels and a road train that takes you around stops opposite! Fantastic, will visit again, Betty. Norwich
Nothing at all!
every thing was good
liked every thing
Very spacious apartment with well-equipped kitchen; wi-fi available in the apartment too; great outdoor pool area
The spa and indoor pool are (or, at least, were) closed on Sunday. I've double-checked on the page in Booking and it doesn't mention this anywhere, as far as I can see. Given that this was one of our main reasons for choosing Forte do Vale, we felt cheated in this respect
We visited The Strip on the evg of our Arrival with our 15 and 20 year old daughters. Stay away from there if you have teenage girls and its late evg its seedy. The Old Town woyld be a choice for all. Sydney Australia.
Good apartment hotel,situated fairly close to the old town itself.The apartments are fairly spacious in the one bedroom apartment we took.Typical balcony for hotel,but the accomodation has plenty of storage space and the apartments are fairly stylish with a t.v. in both bedroom and sitting room and a small see view from this particular room.Interior of hotel kept very clean and staff were fairly good.The hotel runs a shuttle bus to the other three hotels in their group and also a bus to the old town of Albufeira in the morning.Food in the hotel was fairly good on two occasions,once A la carte and once a buffet.Poolside the hotel has the usual kidney shaped pool which was well kept.Doors to the apartments were very secure with high quality locks as standard and a safe at your disposal if required.
Bathroom towels in the hotel were fairly poor and could have done with being replaced by new ones.Sun loungers around the swimming pool could have done with being replaced as most of the older styled ones have seen better days.
The location was good as it was within walking distance of old and new town and it was near the tourist train.
The gym was closed some days. The cafe and restaurant were always closed. The staff gave very little tourist information on arrival. The food at the "bar" by the pool was so bad we had to return it numerous times. The hotel had no atmosphere.
Location was great for both old and new town. The apartment was really spacious and beds were comfy. Staff were really friendly and helpful.
Very clean Friendly staff Spacious room and well equipped Good pool area
Pool side bar prices quite high Some of sun loungers broken
Location very good, walking distance between old town & strip. Apartments excellent.
This hotel offers you everything to make your holiday perfect! It has a great location as it is a 10 minute or so walk to the strip where you will find many bars and restaurants if you so wish, the ambience in the day is quiet and relaxed, pool area lovely plenty of sunbeds and if it all gets a bit too hot there is a beautiful indoor spa and gym, to take advantage of. ( there is is an extra payment for this) something to think about whilst your there..My 20 year old son thought it was brilliant! Would definitely return!! I can honestly say that the senior management of this holiday are brilliant! Extremely accomodating and helpful.Thankyou for a great holiday!!
Whats not to like??
My husband and I have just returned after a week in Forte do Vale. This was our third trip to Albufeira and also the best. Our apartments were very large, perfect size kitchenette, large bedroom with a balcony, air conditioning and a sitting room area with English channels. The apartment was cleaned every day. We went to the pool every day and always were able to obtain sun loungers. The apartments were perfectly located between the old and new town with a grocery shop next door for your essentials. I also used the gym and there was a fee of 25eur for the week and it is closed on Sundays. Reception very friendly and informative on check in. Speedy check out with early departure of 6am. To conclude, we will return and it was a wonderful holiday.
Building site outside bedroom,tiles on bathroom floor filthy with spiders crawling around.Towels well pass there sell by date all torn at the edges and off white.Parasols blowing all over the place even over the balcony onto a busy road,people coming home about 5am and sound of heels all over the ceiling,when we got there to check in receptionist tried to charge more but I produced my booking form which said we were entitled to breakfast which was very poor same thing every morning dried out scrambled egg no selection of fruit if you were down after 9.30 and staff very slow to replace,even had to ask for coffee one morning as machine was empty this is not a five star hotel,I would say about 3 and we have stayed in a lot of five star hotels.
Room size was huge, very spacious and homely! Very clean also! Room was very quiet 204!
Beds not great but manageable
The room was comfortable, large and decorated with taste.
There were only 2 towels for 4 guests & no shampo/soap at arrival. Reception was only able to help with 1 small sample for 4 people until the following day... That is not acceptable from an hotel & sufficient for me not to be able to recommand. There was also quite a bit of fuss because I was not carrying my kids passports. That is fine but should be noted on the website if a requirement in Portugal as most EU countries require only 1 adult passport & generally not the kids'.
Location was very good, beach, strip and old town just a walk away, just make sure you ask for directions - we made a few wrong turns at the beginning... Train stop was just across the road if we were feeling lazy. Worth getting a day ticket to get a feel for the area at the beginning of holiday. Rooms were very big and comfortable. Washing machine was a real bonus.
Did nt get to use the pool much as the area is quite small and sunbeds were always taken by the time we got there.
We loved the location, facilities & pool area. Close to the beaches & the Hotel is midway between the Old Town & The Strip, both were approx 20 minute walk. Hotel was very quiet at night although we were there in August but we ate out most nights so chose not stay in the Hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the apartments were clean, bright & spacious. The Hotel was spotless & my son enjoyed the Gym facilities. Would definitely stay here again.
Beds were hard and not very comfortable. The kitchen needed an oven as difficult to cook everything in a microwave or on the Hob. View from the room overlooked an unused tennis court so was not very exciting!
Free shuttle bus service to beach Walking distance to the strip Walking distance to the old town
A lot of the sunbeds were broken Rooms are a bit dated
muy grande el apartamento y muy bien equipado
Room size Air-conditioning Location
Hard beds Lifeless around pool and bars Lack of crockery Only 1 set of towels at any one time Pool beds broken and insufficient number for guests. Bar prices for food and liquids expensive. Busy road location with both vehicle and drunks.
Location is excellent, staff very friendly and hotel is top notch!
