Adriana Beach Club Hotel Resort
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Olhos de Agua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2011

We stayed at this hotel in august 2011 for a fortnight and it was lovely. Got put in a room on X block which wasn't nice at all (smelt damp) when we asked to change the hotel was fully booked but there was 2 rooms left which people were going into so the porter came and picked us up in his buggy to show us them & we chose the S block 215. This room was a lot better which was next to the pool,bar and restaurants. This was in the Aquamarine end which was a lot quieter than the Adriana end. We sunbathed on the grassed area which was really quiet. Considering it was peak time we always had beds even when we missed breakfast and went down at 12. Rooms were a bit basic but you only sleep in them. Only ate at the Adriana once as it was really busy and the same food as the other restaurants and we also stayed down this end too. We got the bus into Albuferia one day which we weren't impressed & the beach wasn't anything special the beach was better at the hotel. The weather was really nice with a breeze and it rained a couple of days. Also what I wanted to know before we went was if you could get towels at the hotel which I found that you could when I got there for a charge which would have saved on may luggage. Would recommend this hotel and I have tried to book for next year but is a lot more expensive than this year.

Room Tip: If you have a choice choose the s or t block in the aquamarine.

This weekend "discovered" an excellent 4 star resort near Albufeira, the "Adriana Beach Club."
This system works in Resort All-inclusive and covers an area of ​​12 hectares, set in a pine forest, widely landscaped and wooded. It reminded me of the complex ... Bahia Principe Mexico I'm not exaggerating, and even anything ...
Adriana Beach Club is only 5 km from Albufeira and leaves nothing behind to Caribbean resorts (Unless the weather) ...
This complex arose from the merger of two hotels, and Adriana Aquamarina. It has three restaurants (one buffet and grill 2) amphitheater, two bars, two outdoor pools (quite large), an indoor pool, jacuzzi, Turkish bath, sauna, gym, Spa, supermarket, hairdresser, etc. (this last 3 paid, of course).

There are three types of rooms available: basic, standard and deluxe. I opted for basic, which costs less than about 40 € / night.
The only difference between these rooms to the "Standards" is that lie outside the complex (AA and AB blocks), across the road. No problem, because the road is not busy and the rooms are less than 5 minutes of receipt. As soon as it blocks out of AA and AB, is set and the road is a gateway to the resort (which only opens with the same card).
Then make a short walk to the reception, or even any other point in the resort ... I do not regret having spent less € 40!

The only "but" I found was that the all inclusive ends at 23.00, the pool towels have a cost
rental and espresso bars to be paid (€ 1.50). The latter two "mishaps" are easily surmountable:
it takes a towel from home and drink Nescafe is expressed, because there are free machines scattered throughout the complex.

I was delighted with the food, it has a superior quality compared to the resorts of the Caribbean (and attention I really enjoyed Caribbean food). The white spirits, although most are branded "white" drinking is well ... and Beer is a "must" as is sacred! No alcohol there, Pepsi, 7Up, Sumol Orange, Ice Tea (all pressure). Water is drink is served, but I guarantee that is not the network. In fact, there are several water machines in the complex, those that lead bottles of 15l/20l.

The animation can be considered good, although not as good as in the Caribbean. The employees of the resort also give notice positive, as were all clean.

There is a difference in the colors of the bracelets that are assigned to guests, some are blue and others yellow. Not I could see why this distinction ... if someone knows, tell.

Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise that I had because I was not expecting such high quality ...
In fact, and that like this kind of all-inclusive resorts, seriously recommend visiting this complex!

Room Tip: The best rooms are the "Deluxe Rooms".

This hotel was everything we expected and more.
We arrived early morning about 10am although we could not have our room till 2pm they gave us somewhere to put our luggage and we were able to get food and use all the facillities. By the time we had lunch and a look around the resort we were able to check into our rooms.

The rooms were very clean, there was myself my husband and 3 children (8,6,2) we were given two separate rooms joined by a separate lockable door. So we had three beds in one room and a double in the other, two bathrooms and two balconies. Our room was in s block right opposite the aquamarine swimming pool. It was great to walk straight out to the pool and the restaurants And bar especially with the children we could just pop to our room if we needed anything.

The restaurants were good with all the staff being very friendly and helpful. Two restaurants in the aquamarine part one was mainly portugese and one the grill and the 3rd restaurant up at adriana part of hotel (this one was much bigger and had a much wider variety of food) some people have said the food can become a bit repetitive after a while which is true but I think that is the same with most all inclusive hotels, however I was personally just pleased not to have to cook!!

There is a bus into alberferia six times a week which was a great service and we used it several times.

The beach was also lovely and although you have a few steps to walk down to get to it, it never seemed to be a problem with the children. You can also walk to villamoria from the beach which takes about 30mins but worth the walk.

There was also a kids world with Thomas cook which the children loved and gave us a few hours break in the day!

I would dedinately go back to this hotel and would recommend it.

Also just a note if you go here visit zoo marine it was a fantastic day out, one of the best days of our holiday.

First impressions were pretty good as we arrived expecting to wait to wait to be given our room as it was well before booking in time but were brought up right away. The room was more like a box with a large bathroom but who wants to stay in their bedroom most of their holiday? Having stayed in Portugal many many times and sampled their lovely cuisine, I was so disappointed with the food there. If you are into you're salads you are in for a treat but the soup is muck and the cuts of meat for the mains is the toughest I have ever tasted but you wont starve. Most places I've been to in all inclusive board, the bar staff treat you like a beggar and this was no different...for goodness sake we have paid for this service. If you were paying for your drink at the bar they would be tripping over themselves to serve you unless you are Portuguese (hope you're reading this Leonardo). I returned home last night and its the first time I've been drunk since I went....please bring your own alcohol as the drink in this resort is watered down to the extent that it does'nt taste like alcohol....how come the weights and measurements authority have'nt investigated this place. The water out of the tea and coffee machines is barely luke warm and the burgers in the snack bar well....my dog has left a more appetising snack out the back. The entertainment is a complete joke as if you did'nt want to go to the theatre to see the animators show you were left to silly piped music...yes Im sure you're thinking if you want entertainment then go to the show, well what about the many many people who just want to sit and have a drink by the pool after your dinner? The complex is nice and well maintained with plenty of sun loungers. I am not the fussy sort but I can assure you I will not return in a hurry

Its really nice as beaches go, just follow the path by the pool go through a gate then down a few steps (87).
When you get down to the bottom just turn right and walk about 4 k (about 45 min slow walk 30 min brisk) and you'll find a lovely little harbour with a few cafe's and bars, shops and if you dont fancy the walk back get a taxi back for about 10 euro.
Don't know where it go's if you turn right ?

Hotel bus into Albufiera.

Book at reception before 8am on the day before.
Times are 9.30,12,30,15.00,16.30,19.00. I think.

I thinks thats about it .

Thats a no cause its not a 4 star by a long shot (ie).
No bottled water unless you pay for it (you get one with dinner).
Not aloud to take snacks out side unless its on a servette.
Beds are awful.
A\C was no good and not even explanned if it was fixed when reported.
Entertainment was poor (unless you like arobics).
