First holiday to the Algarve, two adults and one child on a short 4 day sunshine break, all inclusive.
Arrived at the hotel around 10.30am, staff were friendly. We were unable to check in our room at this time But they did allow us to use the all inclusive from 11am onwards.
We were able to check in at 1.30pm, our room was on the 8th floor, good size room with two singles pushed together and another single made up our son. The sea view was lovely and the balcony over looked the pool.
The room was very basic but clean. The cleaners attended to the room daily.
We were unable to use our safety deposit box as there was no key available which meant we had take all money and passports out with us each time.
FOOD- not the best, four main dishes each meal time, lack of choices, felt like we were queuing up in a school canteen. Lack of tables during meal times. Drinks are provided in glasses not plastic cups when having a meal. During the day when sat around the pool we were given plastic cups. Drinks were good, local beer, cocktails and spirits.
POOL- Small and basic but clean. Very cold!, Plenty of sun loungers choose from.
LOCATION- hotel only 2min from the lovely beach. Plenty of cafes, restaurants. Relaxing/ chilled area. We were informed by a local that QUARTERIA is a holiday destination for Portuguese. There were many other nationalities also around.
During the evening the beach front was busy with market stalls and some street entertainment. Nice atmosphere. Plenty of day trips available if required.
We would recommend Aqualand if your going with children.
WOULD WE GO AGAIN? YES to QUARTERIA but Not to the Atisma hotel as it was not child friendly.
We would recommend it to couples but not families.
