Brisa Sol

Brisa Sol, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

A centrally located self-catering option that has a good range of on site facilities and spacious communal areas. The rather dated and bland appearance is offset by comfortable and cheerful interior decor which pleases many middle market travellers who prefer a relatively central semi-self-catering base.

Exterior

A rather gaudy and unexciting off white T-shape building with slightly protruding curving balconies many of which overlook the pool and sea whilst some overlook the busy street.

A snack bar and shops occupy much of the ground floor’s frontage and there is a parking area outside the wide glass panelled main entrance.

Property type: Aparthotel

Balcony/Terrace: All

Storeys: 3 to 6

Built Year: 1992

Exterior: T-Shaped building

Interior

A large marble clad lobby appears a little dated but serves its purpose and accommodates a large, welcoming reception desk. Authentic Portuguese ceramic tiles line the staircase that leads down from the entry area to a cosy bar and a congenial but unexceptional restaurant overlooking the pool.

Rooms: 170

Grounds

The spacious and well maintained grounds compensate for the distance from the beach. An extensive lawn surrounds the pool terrace that accommodates a good supply of sun-loungers which have little in the way of shade. A large children’s splash pool is an added bonus as are the on site squash courts.

Location

Area Type: In the centre of the resort, flanked by a number of other similar style properties, that skirt the dual carriage way that runs from E to W through the entire area. There is a good assortment of restaurants, bars and shops in the immediate vicinity and the fire station is immediately opposite. Buses regularly stop outside the entrance and there are a number of fast food outlets across the street.

Nearest beach: 1km (Oura)

Public Transport:
outside to Bus
