Hotel da Aldeia

Hotel da Aldeia, Albufeira Portugal

★    ★   ★

A central and well organised establishment that should suit couples and families who are seeking a relatively central property with easy access to a good supply of amenities but a trek, downhill to the beach areas. Attracts those who prefer a full service 3-star hotel as opposed to a self-catering establishment.

Exterior

A wide and inviting entrance has a short drive in area. The V-shape beige and white coloured building has wide and airy balconies with brown wooden railings, most of the accommodation overlooks the pool. The rooms on the top floor have less shaded balconies than those below.

Property type: Hotel

Balcony/Terrace: All rooms

Storeys: 4

Exterior: V-Shaped Building

Interior

The cheerful and welcoming interior is well arranged with a large lobby and inviting reception area. A colourful children’s room is a useful facility and the first floor a-la-carte restaurant provides a relaxed and amenable dining venue.

A bar, with an entertainment area, and lower level self service restaurant appear more functional but are acceptable for the rating. A terrace, with waiter service, stretches from the main restaurant.

Rooms: 133

Grounds

The flat and well arranged gardens feature many mature shrubs, including a few palms offering some shade. The pool is an adequate size for the number of guests served and the children’s pool area is unusually large. There is a good supply of sun-loungers and additional shade is provided beneath wide parasols over the bar terrace.

Location

Area Type: In a relatively calm and relaxed street, tucked behind the busier area known as the ‘strip’, in the modern district of the resort, surrounded by residential apartment buildings and a good supply of shops, bars and international restaurants. Bus stop 150m.

Nearest beach: 1.3km (Oura)
