Accommodation was very clean but the beds were very hard and the pillows lumpy,the food was excellent in the flavours restaurant and good value.however I will not be returning to the forte do vale as the place lacks holiday atmosphere and the swimming pool was the coldest pool that I have ever been in I think they must pump ice cold water into it .
a 3 year old hotel/app, rooms very luxurious, very clean, excellent location between the strip (10 min walk) and the old town (20 min walk), everything is within walking distance. Beach on 10 min walk idd everything up/downhill. Hotel was not well sound-proofed and were promised free wifi in the lobby never worked. The hotel is so sleek and modern decorated that they are passed to the cosy, everything has a cold and chilly atmosphere, even the bar invites not to drink all the attempts with karaoke, etc.. but there is no chicken! For a friendly atmosphere you really need to go out and on the strip or the old town is that in abundance. Staff is helpful but not do more than is necessary and so Curt and business breakfast cheap causing little choice and cheap products. 1 x done and further every day fresh sandwiches etc. taken when a warm baker only 5 min walk and a super market only 3 min walk had a wonderful holiday with super weather!!
Modern furnished apartment. Sufficient space and equipped with air conditioning in bedroom and living room. The kitchen is as regards equipment very complete with a.o. (vascular) washing machines. Crockery, however, minimal. We found cleaning fine, they exchanged every day, towels 1 x per week clean bedding. The flaw is lovely, allowing you to hear and suffer from noise management of chairs. Staff we found not unfriendly, but necessary and correct. The complex is centrally located between the old and new part of Albufeira. As a result, everything is within walking distance to do good. Beach and old town ca 10-15 minutes. Our son of 18 could be fine with friends on the Strip, also nearby. Eating out is well regulated, near complex you will find Koala Garden (Australian cuisine with enthusiastic owner) and Palacete (more Portuguese) In old town is Cabana Fresca a recommendable. We have had a relaxing holiday here and certainly recommend this accommodation.
