Nice week away

We booked this hotel on a self-catering basis but the majority of guests were all inclusive. Nice pool, but could do with a few more sun loungers.
Food seemed nice, but only ate breakfast a few times as we were out most of the time.
Hotel bar was nice and relaxed, easy to get served. Also had a pool table in a separate room. Staff were friendly. Would return but probably only as a couple as we are looking at hotels with kids clubs for our next family holiday.
Situated next to a big supermarket, and McDonald's and KFC. About a 15 mins walk to both the old and new town.

Not clean and would not go back
7 years ago
I have just returned from this hotel and the rooms are cleaned every day but the bedding was not changed once in two weeks and the towels where only changed once in two weeks. Also there seemed to be a really bad smell from the drain in the bathroom which can get really bad during the night.

The pool area was full of glass which was not cleaned up and the pool was only cleaned once in two weeks as it was full of toilet roll and leaves.

The hotel bar shut at 6pm, so you have to go to the sister hotel Sol Aqua for food and drinks. Also one night one of the hotel staff was asleep on the front desk. Outside the hotel you had homeless people asleep, which was quite scary.

I would not go back to this hotel and it is definitely not a 4 star hotel.

Our sixth time in Albufeira, the first stay this hotel.
We normally go at Easter but were desperate for some late sun so booked at the last minute.
The hotel is situated approx 15 minutes to either the old town square or the strip in opposite directions.It is set away from the main road and it was very quiet at night, you do however hear some noise from the rooms above you. The Modelo supermarket is only 150 yards away, I recommend buying plenty of Oranges and a squeezer for fresh juice for breakfast.
The hotel staff were friendly enough although we did not spend much time in the hotel apart from sleeping. The cleaners were excellent and the room was cleaned everyday.
Our room was a good sized studio apartment with comfortable twin beds and a small cooking area. The room is well equipped for self catering only short of the afore mentioned orange squeezer which we bought for less than a Euro.
The pool and bar area was clean and tidy with plenty of loungers to go round and the children that were there seemed to have a good time splashing in the small pool.
There was no entertainment at the hotel when we were there but there is plenty nearby.
We have booked the Brisa Sol for next Easter but I wouldn't hesitate to return to "Varandas de Albufeira" and would recommend it to my friends.

When we finally found it (for other tourists it is down to the left of the Modelo Supermarket, first turning on the left at the end in a quiet cul-de-sac), the staff were welcoming, the room clean and tidy.

The main nightlife on "The Strip" is approx 20 minutes walk or a short taxi ride. The hotel is in a very quiet location, the pool area is small and very quiet - we only saw about 6 people at the most at any one time, but if you prefer it quiet then this will be OK for you.

There was no entertainment at all - I would have expected entertainment given that it has a 4 star rating,

It would be fairer to say it was a 3 star compared to other hotels I have stopped in.
