Aparthotel in a quiet area of Albuferia, good sized rooms , very clean. Ate breakfast in the hotel, good selection but the cooked items were luke warm at best.
Lunch and dinner available in the hotel but didn't use as it was buffet style only.
No oven in kitchen just microwave and hob and fridge freezer so some restrictions on cooking. Washing machine and dishwasher fitted.

Pool terrace was good with plenty of sun beds, towels can be rented from the hotel.
Free hotel shuttle bus only ran on weekdays into Albuferia and ran a limited service.

Three restaurants within easy walking distance. I'm happy to recommend.Tres Palmerias a primarily fish restaurant. Stews and more and the restaurant next door. Be prepared to book to avoid disappointment.

A small supermarket within a few minutes walk. Larger supermarkets on the outskirts of town.

About 45 minutes from Faro airport.
We found car useful to explore, plenty of free parking at the hotel.
Be aware of motorway tolls with car hire, pre authorise with hire company as you pick up hire car much better to pay in advance as penalty high if you don't. All tracking electronically no booths to pay in as you drive on and off toll road.

Visited Sagres, Silves, Quarteria .Nice fish market and did the cork factory tour.

Two of us stopped here for a week,self catering in late September.The apartment was huge and very clean.The location of the hotel is very good.Not only is it within walking distance of both the strip/old town.If you walk out of the hotel and down one of the nearby side streets.It will take you onto the lovely beach,from where you walk directly into the old town.Their are several very reasonably priced restaurants nearby and a good well stocked supermarket approx 150 yards from the hotel.For you sports fans their are some good bars approx ten mins walk away.Their are plenty sunbeds around the large pool area(although this may obviously be different in peak season) and yes the pool area gets the sun all day.We were both very impressed and would definitely stop here again

Excellent Hotel, friendly helpful staff. Made to feel special on arrival. Apartment excellent kept exceptionally clean by a member of staff daily. Hotel situated halfway between the Strip and Alberferia. Plenty of sun beds available around pool no queues no stress. Would highly recommend this Hotel will be returning next year.
