My wife and I stayed in the Sol E Mar Hotel the last week in July and the first week in August 15. If you are staying in Albufeira you will not get a better Location. Out your back door and straight onto the beach and right outside the front door you have the Old town all around you. 10 out of 10 for location We were half board. The food was always good but lacked variety especially for those who stayed for 2 weeks. 7 out of 10 for food. NB there are loads of good restaurants just outside the hotel door. We took our own tea bags so enjoyed our morning cuppa. My wife also took her own hairdryer. The fact that this Hotel does not have an outdoor swimming pool forces you onto the beach where you pay €15 per day (14 days adds up to €200). You cannot hire the beds for half a day it is €15 or nothing. The air condition in the room worked very well which was welcomed in August. The TV only had 2 English speaking stations. BBC world news and Sky News. As has been stated numerous times although this hotel is dated it is very clean and the staff are very good. I will be back and would stay no where else. I would consider staying Bed & Breakfast as there are many good places within an easy stroll of the hotel.

just back from a lovely week with my husband at this hotel , yes the location was perfect, hotel its self we couldn't fault it , we only paid £20.00 to upgrade to half board , after reading some reviews we thought the food was going to be just ok , so whats £20 we thought take it or leave it , however the evening meal was fab , seems they have a new chief , being a smaller hotel there wasn't much choice , but they always had a fish dish , meat dish , and pasta dish every night, along with the usual salad and sweets , breakfast also very good , orange juice was fab , so I take it hotel must have took note to a review earlier stating the orange juice was like diluted juice , our rooms were large basic but very clean , plenty storage , only fault not enough plugs , only one plug , but found out while coming home the other plug next to our bed which we thought was broken only worked when you put your bed side light on , so that's worth knowing I would say , staff were all very pleasant would definitely return to this hotel and recommend it to friends , just remember before you book , this hotel has no out door pool , so if you don't like the beach think before booking .

We have just come back from a week in Albufeira. When we arrived at the hotel it was very late at night. We were surprised to find some food (salad) in our room which was very thoughtful. The receptionist told us that instead of having a double room we had an upgrade to a two roomed suite as we had our daughter with us. It was great and was on the 6th floor. Fantastic views from the balcony of the beach and sea. The breakfast and evening meal were good. The safe in the room costs 15 Euros for a week. My husband and daughter went para-sailing one day. If you want to book it then go to the para-sailing desk on the beach and not to any of the agents in the streets as they are about 15 Euros dearer. All in all a great holiday and we would definitely go back to the Sol e Mar.
