Favourite autumn escape

Posted 11-Oct-2015
Pros: Amazing staff Immaculate rooms (big apartments) Nice small pool Quiet location / quiet beach
Cons: Terrible gym, hazardous equipment- needs updating badly. Most equipment broken, electric leads trailing everywhere. Stuck in the 1970's
Location: Ten min walk takes you to around 4-5 lovely restaurants, the fabulous not to be missed Black Cat Bar (old fashioned, full of character)
We just had 2 weeks in the autumn sunshine, peaceful, end of tourist time. Location is very out of the way from the main area so perfect for a peaceful break

Review of Clube Maria Luisa

Posted 21-Aug-2015
Cons: Neither of your reps mentioned this e-mail and I never received an e-mail confirming the changes to my itinerary. Awful customer service from Expedia
The apartments are spacious however the furniture and fittings are very dated and need upgrading. It is very close to the beach and 10 or 15 minutes from restaurants and shops. The main issue with our holiday was the poor customer service from EXPEDIA. We had booked 2 apartments for 7 nights which was confirmed by e-mail in June 2015. On Monday 10 August 2015, 3 days before we were due to travel, Expedia sent an e-mail saying that the apartment reserved for my daughters could not be honoured and that they would have to stay in a hotel, 5 miles away, for 2 nights. When I phoned Expedia to find out why I was told neither apartment could be honoured and that all 4 of us would have to stay in the hotel 5 miles away for 2 nights. This was unacceptable as we had family members staying at Clube Maria Luisa. Despite spending over 2 hours on the phone to Expedia in the US at my expense, this could not be resolved. When we arrived at the hotel in Portugal they informed us that they had no reservation for us. They phoned Clube Maria Luisa and were informed that the apartments were now available for the 7 nights. When I spoke to the manager at Clube Maria Luisa to find out how this had happened I was informed that Club Maria Luisa had sent an e-mail to Expedia on Monday 10 August 2015 confirming that both apartments were now available for the 7 nights. I never received confirmation from Expedia of this e-mail. I spent over 2 hours on 2 separate phone calls to Expedia on Monday 10 August

Pros: Proximité de la plage et le calme ambiant
Cons: - Propreté des chambres - Balcon inutilisable pour notre part (à hauteur de piscine et pas de place pour circuler) - Cuisine à moitié utilisable
Hôtel correct vue la proximité de la plage et du calme relatif. Commerces et restaurant pas loin à pied. Idéal avec une voiture car parking privé avec barrière.

En cuanto al apartamento, esta bien equipado, limpio y situado muy cerca de la playa. Veo mal la hora de entrada, puesto qie entramos a las 6 de la tarde, cuando a las 11 de la mañana, ya estabamos y tenemos que salir máximo a las 12 de la mañana. Además 158 euros por unas horas me ha parecido excesivo. No tenía restaurante tampoco.

hôtel très calme et reposant. Il ne faut pas compter sur le restaurant qui est sur le produit a vendre car celui ci est ferme. Le personnel est très bien parle bien français et nous a bien dirigé sur les visites a faire et a ne pas faire. Nous avons apprécie le cöté sécurisant de cet endroit.

Great place, fab beach, amazing people

Posted 11-Sep-2014
Pros: location, staff
Cons: Breakfast
Location: Great location, very close to the beach, fantastic walk along the coastline.
The apart-hotel is great, cosy and quiet. It is close to the beach, 10 min walk from the shops and a bit outside Albufeira city centre. The staff is great and Ricardo recommended the best places to eat. We will go back!

Showing its age...but helped by staff.

Posted 17-Aug-2014 on Hotels
Clube Marie Luisa is sadly showing its age. The decor and amenities reflect its 20+ years with no apparent modernisation. No Aircon in the rooms and curiously no available plugs in the tired tiny kitchen. Our toilet and washing machine failed and the fridge was more like another cupboard...such was its strength in chilling! All that said, the staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant. The rooms are cleaned very regularly. The area is quiet, with little or no passing traffic. Close to a busy beach...though not an easy access.

Venlig og hjælpsom service

Posted 20-Jun-2014 on Hotels
Godt lejlighedshotel, men venlig service. Beliggendheden er god for enden af en blind vej kun med direkte adgang til en god sandstrand! Kort afstand til de lokale restauranter og supermarked. (1.5km). Lejlighederne er fine, dog udstyrket med 10 år gamle 21" TV og eneste engelske kanaler var nyheder og vejr. Køknet var meget begrænset med ustyr. Ingen saks, sløv kniv. Skal stedet bruges til at lave mad anbefales det at medbringe egne knive!
