Had expected more
Great location, decent balcony with lovely beach/sea views, close to centre with all shops bars and restaurants. Clean rooms, good shower, comfortable, but rooms a little basic. To be honest, we had ruled this hotel out on many other occasions because it was very expensive during the summer so we had expected a little more. There is better value in the area so for this reason we may not stay again.

Ideal break
Fantastic short break in this hotel. Ideal location in the old town close to bars and restaurants but rooms face on to the beach making it very peaceful when you want it to be. First time in Albufeira in winter so much quieter than our previous summer visits. Would highly recommend everything about this hotel

Best view in Albufeira
Stayed here last year and returned because it was so lovely. The refurbishment of the reception and bedrooms is superb. Fantastic service all round and a delicious buffet breakfast. Not to mention the views which are the best in the heart of Albufeira. Definitely coming back.

Good hotel and Bad service
Hotel has great location with all rooms get seaview. Spacious rooms with balcony. Hotel bar and restaurant is great on top floor with seaviews. Considering high price for hotel rooms in premium segment, service is not great. Disappointed about service. Complimentary water not provided. They don't provide complimentary tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Even the budget hotels provide this service. There is still scope to improve this hotel and make us use of available space they have.

Think carefully before booking here!!!
We were relocated to the Hotel Auramar as the hotel we originally had booked (Hotel Sol E Mar) was under refurbishment. This was our 1st time at the Auramar and will certainly be our last as we weren’t at all impressed from the moment we arrived. When we checked in we were told that we had a room with a front facing Sea View, however this was not the case at all. The balcony was tiny and we had a Side Sea View room. The room was very old and tired looking with marks on the walls and chipped paint work. Very basic and in need of some work. The buffet restaurant was not that brilliant either as the selection of food was poor and we found the quality of meat to be fatty. Quite repetitive as well. I became unwell one day after being sick severely. I’m pretty sure it was the Paella that I ate in the restaurant that night. It was in a huge pan and may have been sitting in there all day. I understand you get what you pay for, however I would only class this hotel as 2 Star. Certainly not 3 Star. Also the sun beds were all splattered with Seagull dirt which was appalling. Some of the staff were friendly and others were just unfriendly especially the waiter in the downstairs entertainment lounge. I didn’t get his name but he was small with wavy short hair. Not the friendliest. Above all, we still had an enjoyable time but would think twice before booking here again!
