Browns has all the amenities required for a short break with the added bonus of access to sports facilities.
During our stay there was a football team staying, there but this did not impact on our holiday as the complex is well designed and the were separated from the other guests most of the time.
Rooms were well decorated and very clean, although the bed quite firm for my liking.
We were also given a continental breakfast which we did not expect.
We had a lovely short break at this hotel at the end of September and the weather was still beautiful. It was in a lovely location with great views over the sea. It was just a short walk down to the closest beach which had the bluest water I have ever seen. The hotel was nice, the room was spacious and clean with a huge balcony. We ate in the restaurant each evening and although I can imagine if we had been there for over a week the food would probably have become a bit samey we really enjoyed our meals and the staff were really friendly plus there was entertainment every night. The outdoor pool was beautiful to sit and relax by and there was a games room and bar. We walked into the town which was quite a long walk but worth it. Disappointed that we had to pay extra to use the gym and for the safe but overall we loved our holiday and we are looking forward to going back!
Arrived early with airport hotel transfer but the appartment was ready with a nice wecome. Well equiped kitchen. Balcony. Large sitting room. Lots of room. Bathroom a bit dated and the TV was small.
The facilities were OK. Wifi only available downstairs but good value for a 24hr ticket. The sauna, indoor swimming pool area I found dissapointing with extra charge with no area/seating to relax but the outside pool and garden were excellent.
Just a few minutes walk to the lovely beaches and restaurants/shops. Felt very safe.
My hotel transfer was due to arrive mid-afternoon as I had an evening flight. They extended my check out until 2.30pm without any problem.
All staff very friendly and eager to help.
"Lovely hotel, free bus to shopping centre&old town"
Arrived late on a Friday night, staff were excellent and offered a porter to carry our bags to our room. Facilities in the room were excellent, the free bus to the shopping centre and the old town was a great help to see Albufeira. The entertainment in the evening was excellent and varied for all ages.
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.
Situated close to Praia da Oura and providing seclusion, privacy and comfort, the Aparthotel Vila Petra, Albufeira is the …More
