just returned from a week away in the algarve for the wife's birthday. we have stayed in this area many times over the years but first time at this hotel. arrived and checked in, given a room on the third floor (room 337). on examining the room all appeared to be well. as you walk into the room toilet on left two double wardrobes on the right with safe in one of them(30 euro a week with a 15 euro refundable when key returned). Two single beds, then you enter the kitchen come dining room, then onto the balcony, this is were the problem was. The balcony was spacious, but not in the sun, the balcony was constantly in the shade. This made the room very cool at night. We were told at reception that the room was at the rear of the hotel, if we had requested a room at the front of the hotel this would have incurred an extra charge. we pointed out to reception that all photographs and comments on the website (on the beach) showed rooms from the front of hotel, with no mention or comments regarding the rooms at the rear. during our stay we overheard another guest complaining about the same problem. I accept that it was our choice to opt for one of the cheaper rooms available, but this is the first time we have experienced a room with no sun all day. This resulted in us not using the balcony and the room being cool at night. There is a tourist type apartment block with pool facing our balcony which appears to be empty with no furniture or curtains in any of the rooms, But gets the sun all day.

Stayed at the Luna Forte for 5 days at the end of February the weather couldn't have been better for us though chilly at night. The apartments were located in a lovely area close to shops bars and a large supermarket just round the corner. Lots of nice restaurants including The Happy House Chinese Buffet a must if you are in the area. The staff are very friendly especially the wee man on reception who was very helpful. The pool area is very nice. We had a sea view suite on the second floor. Would not hesitate to return.

Stayed here in February for 7 days hotel in good position close to bars and restaurants also about a 5 minute walk from the strip. The beach is about 10 minutes down a hill (tip here coming back up if you walk into the Playa da Oura hotel there is a sign saying elevator use this and it takes you up to the main road level) Back to the hotel everything looked to be kept clean the towels changed daily even on a Sunday, the pool area was nice and clean, all in all value for what we paid with Jet2 holidays.
