Janelas do Mar

Janelas do Mar, Albufeira Portugal

★    ★   ★

An adequate off centre, self-catering base with ample parking outside the main entrance. The uninviting exterior appearance does little to inspire although there is a good range of facilities for those wishing to remain on site. The2 levels of pool area offer plenty of space for relaxation although a rather stark and sterile ambience prevails.

Exterior

A pair of white painted, mundane looking, symmetrical blocks with recessed balconies and off street canopied entrances. A flat patio like terrace connects the buildings and extends out towards the main pool and steps leading down to a lower level.

Property type: Apartments

Balcony/Terrace: All

Storeys: 8

Built Year: 1990

Exterior: Blocks

Interior

The unexceptional interior is spacious and airy but nondescript in appearance. A marble floor provides a cool approach to the wide reception desk and a cheerful looking bar/lounge has green decor. A cafe style restaurant does little to inspire and extends on to a covered terrace.

Rooms: 164

Grounds

The grounds are extensive and generous for the number of units they serve. A mini golf area is available but there is little in the way of natural vegetation. The pools are on two levels, linked by narrow steps. There is a limited supply of sun-loungers and a pool side snack bar has a shaded area and plenty of seating.

Location

Area Type: In a slightly raised location, towards the rear of the resort, amongst an array of residential apartment blocks, resembling a council estate. Set beside a cul de sac, overlooking the main resort area with distant views over the sea and coast. A small collection of shops and a snack bar is located 100m away. There is a courtesy bus service to Old Albufeira and the beach.

Nearest beach: 2.5km (Oura)
