Hotel Frentomar
Ranked #62 of 152 Hotels in Albufeira
Reviewed 12 July 2017

Based well into the old town and not too far away from the picturesque harbour, this small 9 room hotel is in an ideal location.
Even though it is only a few minutes walk into the old town square that houses the noisier bars / restaurants, the location of the Frentomar means you will have a quiet nights sleep.
Even from the new town / strip a taxi is only 6 euro current prices.

To the room itself ...
We stayed 5 nights and the towels were changed every day, the sheets twice. Kettle, cups, glasses, fridge in the room. Free wi-fi ( password on the wall on entry )
Reception staff were lovely and even loaned us 2 plates and knives and forks for the Indian we ordered - 10 yards away from the hotel ! )
Key card entry to hotel after 9pm opens both outside door and your room
Beds sooo comfy too.
Will definitely return. We have stayed several places in Albufeira but this simply because of the location and cleanliness has been a mini revelation.

Room Tip: Room 105 is street facing but still quiet just up one flight of stairs

Lovely small family run hotel. Spotlessly clean, lovely fresh smelling bedding , very comfy bed. On a quiet street right on the beach cliff top , about 50 meters from the elevator down onto the beach . Very close to the old town square , 5 minute walk down , along the way passing fab cocktail bars and eateries with sea views . We stayed for 9 nights , and had clean towels daily, and room cleaned .
We chose a room with a balcony and partial sea view which we found to be perfect for us .
Fantastic location to the old town , and the marina . if only it had room for a pool .

This hotel is not fancy but lovely nonetheless. Our room overlooked a stunning pier and the beach. Very quiet area but 5mins walk to the excitement of the town centre. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. Very nice people at the front desk.

Booked at short notice after being reassured by the various reviews we read and we were not disappointed. The location is perfect for a short walk into the old town or lounging on the beach. The room was spotless but not the biggest in the world but was more than adequate for the 2 of us bearing in mind that very little time is spent in the room when on holiday. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels replaced. We had a town facing room (106) and one tip for the owners would be to hang a net over the window to provide some privacy when wanting to have the curtains open. The toilet takes some negotiating but once again it did not in any way spoil our stay. Overall great value for money and we will be back.
