As the title stays this little gem of an apartment hotel is nicely tucked away from the busy strip yet you can walk down there within 5-10 mins. Staff (Marco and Maria) were absolute stars and were always on hand to help with any needs - We originally were booked in to a room overlooking the road but on request managed to get a room overlooking the pool with the Ocean on the horizon. Forgot a few things from home but they were always happy to have a search and lend us something you normally would have to go and buy. If I was to go to Albufeira again this would be the only place I would stay.

Our experience of this hotel was second to none. The facilities are excellent, its clean, the staff are attentive and the food is great. The beach is 2 minutes walk away where there are 2 great bars/ retardants serving excellent food. The hotel itself is in a quiet residential area making the stay peaceful and relaxing, away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts
Hotel had everything you needed, pool indoor and out plus spa facilities. Breakfast was plentiful with a good variety to choose from.The hotel was very clean. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming and helpful.
Stayed for 13 days in November 2014. Very good overall impression.
Very quiet environment in and around the hotel (in November), many great beaches around (Coelha, Sao Rafael, Castelo), absolutely incredible cliffs (!!!).
Ocean water warm enough to swim even in the winter months. Swam several times, the only problem was high waves.
There's not so much "civilization" around the hotel, which was also a good issue, especially if you need a quiet place for the stay, but the nearest city (Albufeira) is only 7 min away, there's a free shuttle bus from the hotel.
Been to Spain before, in my opinion Portugal is very different from it. Strongly recommend this hotel and Portugal as a country to visit.
This hotel is located right on the strip and steps away from the beach. You have everything you need right at your doorstep. Restaurantes, bars, cafés, grocery stores and much more! Highly recommended hotel if you don't want to be driving everywhere. I read some reviews about noise because of the location but I have no complaints and slept fine. I Will definitely stay here again when I return to Albuferia!!
Very pleased with the relatively recent refurbishment of this hotel. The glazed 'wet room' approach of the shower / wash area, very much to our taste. Bed comfort also very much to our taste. Breakfast ample selection for a 1 week stay. Very clean. Proximity to the old town very close albeit a short hill walk for those with any difficulty. Room right on the beach with the sound of the sea to fall asleep and to wake. Lovely. Negatives would be that the public café isn't open for residents only to enjoy a night time drink to the sight and sound of the sea. 3 star because some facilities eg pool are located at the mother hotel just across the road.
