The hotel is on top of a long steep hill and bearing this in mind, the courtesy bus service was pretty diabolical. It only ran three times a day with the last service being at 5:30 pm. The hotel didn't have a restaurant on site and after 5:30, the courtesy bus would only take you to the hotel's restaurant in the town centre, providing you have a table booked. We compared the prices with other restaurants on the resort and found that the hotel's restaurant was overpriced and it was cheaper to get a taxi and eat in one of the many restaurants in the resort. The Oasis is highly recommended.
We'll be back to Portugal as we loved the Algarve but we'll not be back to the Selferias.

The pool and bar area were good enough, nothing spectacular.
The only negative aspect of the Solferias Aparthotel is that it is quite far away from the centre of the resort and up a steep hill. However, there is a courtesy bus 3 times per day, and a taxi only costs 5 euros.
What really makes the Solferias Aparthotel great is the staff, who could not have been more helpful and friendly.

We asked if we could move to a room overlooking the pool, (we were willing to pay extra for this) this was granted without any fuss and at no extra cost.
All staff are friendly and courteous. The hotel runs a bus 3 times a day which is handy if you need to do any shopping.
The hotel also own a restaurant away from the hotel and if you a book a meal here they will provide transport free of charge. We enjoyed the Solferios so much we returned in July 2006.
Yes the hotel is situated up a steep hill but after a good night out you do not notice it and the view of Carveiro from the top of the hill is spectacular.
