Albufeira

Surrounded by delightful gardens, this modern hotel is situated in a great setting, only a 10-minute walk from the beaches of Praia da Oura and Praia da Santa Eulália, two of the most beautiful beaches of the area. The famous Albufeira strip with its countless restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and nightclubs is only minutes away, the historic old town of Albufeira can be easily reached.

Nice modern hotel but food wasn’t 4 star

Hotel was really nice, modern and clean. However when it came to the food in the restaurant it wasn’t great but it wasn’t awful either. It was fine for the odd meal but I wouldn’t recommend eating there every night unless you’re on a tight budget.

The breakfast was better than lunch and evening meal...

The food wasn’t very well labelled so we had to ask staff on several occasions what certain food was.

Nice holiday

Review by dlorrc Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Nice holiday at the Sol Albuferia. Lots of safety measures in place and rooms were kept nice and clean. Food in restaurant was very well presented and repetitive-shame there was no labels showing what you were eating...

The entertainment team (Bellux entertainment) were fabulous and so so friendly without being too pushy. Shout out to Alex & the 2 girls (Anna). My kids don’t normally go to the kids club but they did this time. One of my kids has autism and they were so understanding and accepting of him - he had an amazing holiday thanks to Alex & the girls. Sadly the evening entertainment lacked when the Bellux team were not around. Recommend a trip down to the old town of Albuferia .

Good 4 star hotel

The hotel had lots of Covid measures wearing masks inside unless seated at a table, in the bar or restaurant and wearing a plastic glove to wear while getting your choice of food using the utensils. There was also constant cleaning which was excellent to see. Our pool view rooms were excellent with good air con, comfy beds, TV with a couple of English channels and WiFi. The bathroom is modern with a great shower, they provide shower gel, shampoo and lovely liquid soap. The main pool was heated and was a nice temperature...

The entertainment staff worked hard playing some good music and organising games Anna was a star but they were all good. They started with their excellent dance to their catchy music. They finished with pool aerobics which got lots of participants. The sun loungers were ok with towels available for 20 euro deposit. If you wanted a good sun bed with a large parasol you had to get up before 8.00. which is typical. The beer was good the measures for the spirits were on the strong side, so you had to guide the bar staff to get the drinks to your own taste. The food was generally ok as most all inclusive it becomes very samey there was always something you could have and it was good quality however Breakfast and Lunch much better than evening meals. We personally went out for our evening meal every other night. The evening entertainment was quite poor we saw a couple of ok singers and Karaoke once, and Bingo once and a quiz twice.

I would suggest you have a paid Bingo a couple of times a week, Live Singers every other night or possibly kids Disco then Adults disco or Karaoke, the lighting needs to be more dimmed in the main bar area. I would also recommend leaving the music at the pool area on low when the entertainment team go for their lunch break.

Mixed bag. But mostly ok. (Just ok though)

Review by gregnewton13 Manchester, United Kingdom

We’ve avoided the all inclusive holiday for our last few family trips. Obviously lockdown has minimised travel, so we figured… winter sun, make it easy.. let’s go...

The hotel is in a great spot, far enough from the horrors of the strip, and a short hop to the beach and surrounding attractions. The food. It was ok. A bit samey, no daily theme, just a constant flow of similar stuff. It was tasty though.. albeit, it seemed very cold! Unless you were first there when it was refilled. It wasn’t hot. The bar area and drinks were good, normal AI choice. Pool area, small but perfectly functional, it was never over crowded, and apart from a couple of days when it was exceptionally busy, didn’t really struggle for sun beds. (The 6am towel droppers were out in force though!) The animation team… wow… they work hard! Plenty to do during the day, and they carry on through until everything shuts down.

So.. why only 3 stars then? The staff. Not everyone, there were a handful of very pleasant and engaging people (mainly the meeters and greeters at the restaurant entrance) … it was the bar staff, and the waiters / table clearers. They were just rude! I got fed up of saying ‘hello!’ ‘Thank you!’ ‘How are you?’ —— so I just gave up.

When you book all inclusive, there’s no real chance to enhance someone’s holiday, other than by the experience, and that experience comes through service delivered by the staff. The bar and restaurant teams are the ones who interact the most. These should be excellent customer facing people… We all remember the funny bar guy!

Note to hotel *** if you can improve this, you’ve got a great hotel here…

Great Stay with Entertainment!!

Review by Dggranger Birmingham, United Kingdom

First time in Portugal with kids. I was quite concern about it, because of Covid, but it was great!

Food it's awesome, staff super friendly and the environment around the pool is everything we asked for.

Gotta say that my kids didn't want to go to the Kids Club, cause they've been in lockdown for so long. They wanted to enjoy every second at the pool...

But it looked like the Kids there had a lot of fun, with crafts and facepaintings.

Shout out to Alex from the entertainment team Bellux, who was unstoppable. Always with a smile and some really good energy around the pool.

Best part on the holiday were the two Halloween nights the entertainment offered to the guests. Even tho the makeup were scary, the kids and us had a blast.

Best entertainment team we've found so far!

Thanks to everyone envolved.
