Stayed for a week in October during which it was my husband's 50th birthday. On return to our room there was a lovely (very tasty) little chocolate cake plus a note to say go to one of the bars for a complementary drink.
Hotel is nicely designed, comfy beds, very clean. Free safe. Scales in the bathroom (I was made up with these!) Various English TV channels including BBC1 & ITV. Grounds of the hotel are not huge so I suspect in the summer it could become a bit crowded.
Close to a number of restaurants and bars but far enough away to not hear noise.
You can walk down to the beautiful beach but the quickest route does include approx 80 steps! There is a nice bar/restaurant at the bottom.
Tuk Tuk rides cost €10 and you can flag them down. Taxi rank around the corner from the hotel.
We would return to Albuferia and would recommend this hotel.

First of all I would like to compliment the staff of this hotel especially the cleaners as they all deserve a pay rise!!. The hotel is so clean I can eat off the floor! We booked this hotel from the positive reviews and they were 100% correct. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the beach. Across the road there are bars, restaurants, shops and transport system. We flew in from Faro and the bus going there was literally around the corner! If we ever come back to Albufeira, we will definitely book with this hotel again!

We chose the hotel based on two features - adults only and well designed. Extremely picky (Normally we don't care), but we thought we'd treat ourselves.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the rooms are immaculate. No matter how much sand we brought back from the beach, it was always spotless after a visit from the cleaners.
The designs of the rooms itself are well spaced. Love the giant numbers on the door, and the contactless locks are fantastic.
I read grumblings about the double beds being two singles pushed together. In fairness I've never known any different in Europe, and let's be honest it makes no difference.
The bar, in the evening, is great and breakfast in the morning is fantastic with an array of food available.
We never spent time at the pool, preferring to walk down to the beach nearby. It's about 10 mins walk down a rickety platform, but worth the trip (Not literally) down. Soft sand and a reasonable cafe.
About 15 minutes walk to the strip, you'd never know it. The room was really quiet. We did, technically, go just before the end of season.
Lovely Hotel and Location

Me and my partner are just back from 10 nights at this hotel which was lovely very clean and bright the staff where always helpful and the location to the beach was excellent.
Our room was at the front of the hotel with a nice balcony which had enough room on it in my opinion it had two chairs and a small table the view was of the opposite apartments but we weren’t bothered by that. Room was cleaned daily and on arrival we were left two beach towels. There was a kettle and fridge in the room and when asked we were given an iron and ironing board.
Breakfast was very fresh and had something for everyone.
The pool area was very clean but a little small in busier periods I would imagine but we used the beach most days which we accessed out of the pool area and down the wooded steps which are great going down but coming back up is a little harder. We always had two sun beds and a parasol for €12 a day 😀
Location for bars and restaurants was good and only a ten min walk from the strip although we preferred to visit Old Town at night by taxi at €6 each way which was full of lovely restaurants.
Transfer from the airport was about 30mins in a private transfer with Yellow Fish Taxi’s this was €63 for pick up and departure and we always use yellow fish who have never let us down.
All in all a great time in a great hotel and no kids 😝👍
