Hotel Forte do Vale

Hotel Forte do Vale, Albufeira Portugal

★   ★   ★    ★

A pleasing, modern apartment complex with rather stark looking communal areas on its interior. A public health club at the ground floor level is an added bonus for those wishing to pay for its services.

The dining facility on the ground floor has restricted opening hours and is frequented by non-residents. Attracts those seeking a modern and somewhat sterile base in a central and easily accessible location.

Exterior

A long landmark cream and beige coloured building with a wide, drive up entrance at its rear. Steps lead up from the street to another entrance which also serves the separately managed ground floor health club. All accommodation units have a wide and airy balcony with many overlooking the street.

Grounds

A flat, paved pool area, with a limited supply of vegetation, is located at the S end of the building and overlooks the street. There is an ample supply of sunloungers and parasols are provided on non windy days. The pleasantly landscaped pool has a bar/ snack bar to one side, with additional shade.

Location

Area Type: On a pleasant road, approximately 400m S of the central dual carriageway and within 200m of the edge of the popular ‘strip’ vicinity with its many shops, bars and restaurants. There are other similar but older self catering complexes all around and there is a rather busy cross-road junction 80m from the entrance. Bus stop outside.
