Hotel da Aldeia
Ranked #131 of 154 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Well, half of the Hotel Da Aldeia faces the noisy nightclubs of "The Strip" and the other half of this hotel faces its tranquil pools and gardens. If your room is in the half facing The Strip you will NOT sleep until gone 5 a.m. each night, whereas if your room is in the other half your nights will be calm and peaceful. Your peace will come at a price though as the quiet half rooms cost 5 euros per night more, but this is worthwhile if you want rest assured. The hotel has made no attempt to screen out the street noise and maybe prefers to charge for room upgrades instead. Food is enjoyable, staff are helpful, and rooms are basic but clean(ish). We would stay here again but only if our room was on the quiet half as we value our sleep.

Room Tip: For Pete's sake DO NOT book a room facing The Strip!!!

We have a five night break at this hotel last week in March and it was just fine. We didn't pay much at that time of year and certainly got value for money. No complaints at all about the room itself, it was spacious and comfortable, and our pool facing balcony was really roomy as well. Bathroom was fine - shower good, lots of hot water, and comfy beds. I really don't know what some people expect! The food too was fine - there were some things I didn't fancy but always a good selection of salads and two or three hot mains plus veg. The people who asked for a chip butty make me laugh, each to their own, but when there's a range of good food on offer its not surprising the staff are susprised to be asked to make chips for a sandwich! I actually found the dining room staff in particular to be very helpful and attentive. The hotel was obviously quiet at the time of year so we didn't experience the entertainment. The pool area was also very nice, but because of the stiff breeze we weren't there that often. The rooms facing the Strip would probably be noisy at night - but our room was fine. Perhaps later in the year the location might be more for a younger clientele but we certainly enjoyed our stay al Aldeia in March.

Room Tip: Definitely worth booking a pool facing room.

First impressions on arriving were great. The reception area was very grand and clean. The staff on reception were friendly enough but we didnt like having to hand our passports over for the duration of the stay!!!! The rooms were fairly basic but served a purpose. Our room and balcony was located overlooking the strip where there around 4 lively bars directly opposite. This was great for a few drinks in the evening but awful when we tried to get to sleep. We mustave only slept for 28 hours max the whole week we were there. The food wasnt the best but we didnt book for that reason. Instead we took a stroll down the strip most evenings and only used the hotel for breakfest.

This hotel is ideal for young couples who want a healthy mixture of sun, sea and nightlife. The club/bar reps arnt sleazy like they are in places like magaluf and families are welcome it seems at all hours.

We used the hotel as a "base" and spent most of our time on the beech or sight seeing. For this the hotel was excelent and served its purpose. Great value for money.

I am writing this review to stick up for the Hotel Da Aldeia as i can't understand what all the complaints are about me and my wife have visited five times. Lovely bright reception area, lifts to all floors, shown to your allocated room within 5 mins of arrival. Nice clean pleasant room, balcony, plenty of hot water, room ammentities, clean towels, friendly helpful staff, nice bar area, good breakfast and food, lovely pool area and gardens AND QUIET! Plenty of surrounding bars and resteraunts especially Green Bar and Elfornel steak house (think its spelt right.) Always nice sunny weather, March, Dec, Oct always lovely and sunny.
The advice i would give is you MUST NOT book a room at the street side, a pool view room is a must if not then dont expect to sleep. Although this is through NO fault of the Hotel Da Aldeia this is the fault of the local authority who allow discos and bars to be open after midnight and allow the noise and commotion to continue well into the early hours! - LaBamba is the main culprit for all the noise!
See you soon! Mr Grayston

Room Tip: Pool view room is a must, i cant stress this enough!
