Just returned after a 9 night stay. 6th April to 14th April 2015 Check in was quick and efficient, we were allocated a room on the first floor. The room was clean and plenty of space, lovely to have a fridge although it would have been nice to have a kettle, (we did take our own) A balcony with a table and chairs and a beautiful sea view for everyone. We left our door ajar every night and fell asleep and awoke to the sound of the waves. We were bed and breakfast! Very good choice jam. honey, meats, chesse, brown and white rolls, sliced bread for toasting, full cooked breakfast, eggs fried boiled and scrambled, choice of juices tea and coffee choice of cereals yogurts, also fruit salad, sadly this was tinned so I missed my fresh fruit, Old town right on your doorstep, lots of bars and restaurants and I would definitely recommend Shallom 2 all you can eat ribs all their food was amazing! What lovely friendly people all over Albufeira. We hired a car for 3 days to get to see more of the island and so glad we did there are some beautiful places to visit, although parking could be expensive in high season around the hotel as it is very limited. We will definitely return and definitely return to this hotel The hotel is very clean and very well run, All the staff are very friendly. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

I've reviewed the hotel a few times before however I have said in the past may not be suitable for people with mobility issues. On this visit I had restricted mobility due to a broken hip and hired a scooter from Algarve Mobility just to see how it worked. I have never used a mobility scooter before but what a great help! If you fancy a couple of minutes watching my trip from Sol e Mar to the Old Town Square you'll see how easy it was for a beginner. The hotel staff were really helpful and made sure I had no issues with leaving the scooter in the hotel and charging at the same time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv7XrRhIqVs Hotel superb value as usual!

We stayed here 31 March to 9 April for an enjoyable 10 days. Check in was smooth. Room on 4th floor was large, airy and clean with maid service daily.Beds were comfortable and extra blankets available. Went HB and found the food very good. There was always something to tempt you at dinner and breakfast covered everything from cold meat,fruit,cereals to fry ups. Something for everyone. Found the lounge which had a piano man every night a little too quiet but as you are central in Old Town livelier entertainment is close by. I recommend Sherry's Bar for a good nights craic. We used Yellowfish Transfer to and from the airport and booked online 48 euro. They were great. Overall a very good holiday and would return.

Imagine going asleep to the sound of the sea!well I just did at the sol e mar Portugal for the last four nights.Every balcony has a sea view.We had thunder and lightning last night and I know it is the last thing you want when you go away but just to watch it all from the balcony was amazing..The hotel is quite old fashioned but spotless.The beds and pillows are comfy. Loads of hot water.Has bath,shower.The TV has few English stations.No kettle in room but you have a fridge.You ask at reception for hair dryer. The only minor prob was there was only two sockets in room and only one was working.Breakfast has plenty to offer.Really loved the hotel staff.Every one of them were so polite and helpful.weather was not great but was roasting when we were leaving on Thurs.Thanks to all the staff for wonderful holiday.Paul and Linda Dublin
