Location was perfect room cleaned and towels changed everyday lovely sea view
Only had breakfast it was very poor very little choice and poor quality other guests said the same about dinner. Some of the staff unfriendly anf unhelpful. Nowhere to relax in the sun unless sat in cafe where you were obliged to buy something !!!
It really comes down to what you are looking for, If it's hotel amenities then this isn't the place (it's not the 4 seasons), however if it's about being in the thick of it you can't do better. Everything is within a 5 min walk from the hotel front door. It is an older hotel however, it was clean, beds were ok and staff helpfull. If we went back I would have no issues booking this hotel again.
Made to feel extremely welcome. Beautiful sea view room.
The location could not be beat. The staff was excellent and went out of their way to help accommodate us. The hotel is beachfront and features an esplanade just above the beach with a restaurant, bar, deli, and dessert shop. The hotel elevator goes down to the esplanade and is very convenient. The breakfast was very good and featured a wide selection of hot and cold breakfast items. Our room had a balcony with a great view of the beach and ocean. The décor is mid-century modern with a 60's vibe. The hotel is also very close to the old town part of Albufeira with many shops and restaurants. Overall, a great hotel.
The air conditioner in the room was not very powerful and it took a long time to cool the room down. We could tell the mattresses were old. They were very stiff and not very comfortable. Thankfully, the pillows were very fluffy and comfortable. It would have been nice to have Wifi in the room and not just the lobby.
Location of beach & old town Great view Staff were helpful with air con problem was fixed straight away Will stay at Sol e Mar again
If I really had to pick any faults they were that the Bed frames were Noisy. Safe in room (309) was unusable Lock missing We were only there for 3 nts so didn't feel the need to say anything.
Location was fantastic
FEMALE Receptionest wasnt very helpful at all
Balcony with small table and chairs for private ocean view lunches & leisure. Spacious room. Great location in the heart of the beach zone.
Would recommend due to the excellent location. Other good things were that the rooms are large and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Hotel is dated and in need of refurbishment (plastic shower hose attached to tap in bath, one example). Was also quite noisy (was woken in the early hours on all but one night of my stay)
We faced an issue which comes with mostly because of hot weather, the manager/front desk was fast to respond with very nice and professional approach that completely changed our perception of the place and made our stay agreeable. The front desk staff is very helpful with a lovely smile on their face
the view overlooking the beach was amazing the food and drink was great and reasonable prices
no outdoor pool no double beds
this is are 3rd time and we had a great week weather was good ,
some of the staff in the resturant bars were miserable may be it was the heat, some of them was lovely ,
Location was excellent, easy access via the lift down to the beach. Rooms spacious with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space.. Loved the restaurant at the beach with the cushioned seating.
Thought the hallways were drab and needed revamped. Bedroom furniture looks a little dated. Bathroom had only a small light over the wash basin ,needs a few more light fittings to brighten it. Breakfast lacked variety of choice, every day the food on display was identical.If you don't eat fried or scrambled eggs there was little else.Table cloths were dull and drab and made the restaurant area unattractive. This hotel was Five star in some respects and only three star in other ways in this way its falls between two the respective standards.
V Good location, Staff friendly and helpful
It took two days to sort out air conditioning due to one member of staff on the reception not responding to report of problem
Great service - organised our taxi transfer. Very friendly and efficient service. Large spacious rooms. Great location.
Location!! right on the beach and every room has a beautiful view. Bright airy spacious and comfortable room
no wifi in room and was unable to get wifi in any of the public areas no matter how many times I tried over the three days
Wonderful location directly over the beach. Friendly efficient staff and very good breakfast
Parking is not easy and no internet in the rooms
Location, and the balcony
Firstly, facilities are very old and noway it is 4 stars hotel, I would rather rate 2 stars hotel. Breakfast was OK, comfort was OK. I would not stay there if I go to this area again.
Fantastic location, all rooms have sea view.
My stay was too short.
GREAT OCEAN VIEW
THERE WAS INTERNET ONLY IN LOBBY, NOT IN ROOMS.
Location and communal areas excellent
Rooms basic and most definitely not 4star. 2star at best. Rooms do not match rest of hotel.
Clean, very good location with view.
Beds could be more comfortable.
Location within the town and right on the beach
They nearly ran out of Magners.
Location, staff friendly and good value for money
The location was amazing, couldn't get any better. The views were fantastic.
Breakfast was only average and the same musician was playing every night in the bar.
