Really liked this hotel and will go back again. Hotel staff very welcoming. Breakfast, which is included in the price, was excellent.
We had originally booked a standard room which we didn't know faced the street and blook of flats, but upgraded to a Deluxe sea view room which was worth the little bit more extra.
My only complaints are that the bathroom was a bit smelly.
"Nice hotel. Quiet clifftop location good sea views"
Lovely sea views and quiet location make this a lovely place to stay. Breakfast bar really fantastic selection. Bus services to both Albuferia and Vilamoura were very user friendly. The half day excursion to Lagos and Cape St Vincent was well worth doing. Would like to return one day.
A better hotel in past days. Before timeshare (or Infiniti, as they like to call it !) This has lead to parts being only for them (Pathetic in my opinion)! and less rooms to use for the general public. Rooms that are available are quite nice, good cooking facilities. Kept clean by hard working staff (Thank you, to them) It would be nice for newcomers if there was a sign saying "This way for the lift to the top" (its in the corner by the swimming pool) This saves climbing up a big hill to the shops etc..Especially for the elderly or infirm.The price of drinks is high, 'cept for happy hour !
Really good hotel, had a very pleasant stay. Room was very comfortable, very clean, with plenty of towels and toiletries. The only downside for me was the view...I was on floor 2, directly over the restaurant, so my view was of the outside eating area, and not very private.
The staff were helpful and polite, and overall it was a great place to stay.
This hotel is in an amazing location, situated in the Old Town, right on the beach, and all rooms have a sea view balcony. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and the cooked food was varied every day. Don't expect a double room because they are all twin beds. The evening entertainment in the bar area overlooking the sea was very popular. We had a fabulous stay with no complaints.

The 4 stars hotel Sol e Mar is located in the centre of the old town of Albufeira . Algarve , with its capital Faro, has …More
The former little white fishing village of Albufeira, now densely developed beneath a sea of apartments and mid-rise blocks, is the region’s most popular resort. The pretty Old Town is wall-to-wall restaurants and bars, though some local establishments and residential areas still remain. Its picture-postcard Fisherman’s Beach, with spectacular ochre cliffs and rock stacks, remains an iconic, albeit often very crowded, Algarve sight.
