We arrived here on 27th September for 7 nights half board. A very cheap hotel with excellent friendly polite service from all staff. Breakfast is basic continental with juices, tea and coffee. We ate lunch by the pool most days, toasties, burgers, chips and salads! Our evening meals were eaten in front of a gorgeous sunset right over the pool...

I was looking for a late summer getaway on a real tight budget and this place did not disappoint :) I am a female solo traveller and pretty hardy but even novices would feel safe and have no issues here. The hotel looks a little old but everything is in perfect working order and is perfectly clean. The lady on...

I ended up booking a room at this hotel as most hotels in the region were already fully booked and this one seemed OK. The location is quite nice if you have a car as it is not in Albufeira itslef (tourist trap) and close to nice beaches. The hotel has a rather old feeling, kind of outdated. Rooms are...

This is a review of the restaurant etc - we didn't stay at the hotel. Firstly, do not be put off by the basic look of the Torre Velha (sports bar!) because it's a real gem of a find. On the other hand they do show sports on a big screen and have a ridiculously massive whisky collection if that's...
