Fantastic relaxed environment but close enough to the bars and restaurants to explore the area. Room was fantastic and the Spa and indoor pool luxurious

Great hotel in great location.
Fantastic hotel in a prime location (albeit slightly noisier than usually at night being located on bar street) . That said, it did not bother us in the slightest. Only slight niggle is storage space and lack of balcony. Being of a modern style open plan wardrobes I understand, but more than 2 drawers would have been preferred as we had to store most of our clothes in piles below the wardrobe rail. Again a balcony was almost expected so nowhere to dry swimwear and towels was a niggle. However the pool area, staff, sun beds and rest of amenities definitely compensated for these. Although on the slightly more expensive side, worth ever penny and will be returning in the future.

20/10
The hospitality was 20/10. My partner and I felt so welcomed that we are definitely staying there again when we return to Albufeira. It’s nice to be at a hotel where the staff is all smiles and ready to help with whatever request you may have. The spa is amazing, the underground pool was such a great experience and the water was at a perfect temperature. The breakfast was superb, I struggled to finish the cakes offered at the end from how full I felt.. 😯 The rooftop is very chill and has an amazing view, they have this area next to the pool that has beanbags on top of a net where you can see quite a few floors down.. it’s for those brave ones who aren’t afraid of heights! I recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a wonderful hotel experience.

Perfect
This ultra modern adults only hotel was a joy to visit. All white with occasional blue decor is fantastic. It has two entrances with reception at both. It's situated in the centre of all the nightlife action that Albufera has to offer. Two minute walk to the beach either thru the hustle and bustle of the bars and shops or a quiet downhill walk. Breathtaking views from most of the rooms. Staff very friendly and multilingual. It was a relaxing stay for 3 nights.

Beau, bien situé mais bruyant
Bel hôtel en plein centre, mais attention le quartier est très bruyant (l'hôtel vous fournit des bouchons d'oreilles), à éviter pour ceux qui recherchent le calme
