n0t that good

there was a lot of building work going on a pile of rubble out side my room door on arrival, also the building next door was having a lot of work and all day you could hear jack hammers and drilling all day long, I complained to the manager but there was little she could do ,it completely spoiled my holiday ,, the tap in the kitchen dripped all the time so had to sort out myself, no hot water the whole time only got sorted out on last day, I was fed up with complaining to the staff ,and I'm not the sort of person who likes complaining ,will not be going back there,

Really enjoyed it. Very clean, sheets and towels changed regularly. Iron, ironing board, hairdryer supplied and well equipped kitchen. Had the studio was spacious and used top floor as balcony 😀 View from there spectacular 😊 Staff friendly. Location brilliant. Very reasonable tourist menu at local restaurants. Very quiet but waa there in October. Great cliff walks nearby. Two gripes. Water in rooms not very warm. Sea cutting up so rough couldn't get in water, tried twice ended up face down in sand both times. 😉

Another Great Stay

Love Algar. Stayed in seaview apartment on 4th floor. Unfortunately was not one of the refurbished apartments. Dining sitting area is very dark and dated. Would love to have washing machine available. Apart from this view was amazing and location could not be better

A gem

This hotel is amazing value for money we have been visiting it for 10 years... a seaview room is a must, rooms are always very clean the maids will clean your room every day if you want and all the staff are wonderful. Only fault is only one English TV channel.

Beautiful views

Our 5 night stay in March was excellent. Friendly staff, brilliant location with sea view.. Only fault would be the very dim lighting in the kitchen/lounge area.. Maybe should have down lighters instead of up.. Top standard cleaning which was daily.. Will be returning in November.

Just ok

The best way I can describe the Algar is dull and boring. Apart from it's central location and sea views it really doesn't have anything else going for it. We had a 1 bed seaview room. The bedroom area was reasonably decorated for the price with a nice balcony overlooking the beach, unfortunately this room was lacking both in power sockets and lighting. The lounge/kitchen area was disappointing as it lacked in privacy due to semi opaque wood and glass windows and door to a public corridoor. The television has no british TV and seems to cater very much for German/Dutch clients. We were also plagued with ants during our stay. The roof pool is not really useable as it is tiny and only 70cm deep, there is just a few sunbeds up there that are snapped up very quickly and the bar NEVER opens. You are also forbidden to take up your own food or drink due to the abundant seagulls watching, cawing and waiting to swoop(annoying). There is wifi in the restaurant bar area if you buy a drink or food but this facility is not extended to residents and as the lobby, bar, restaurant area lacks any charm or entertainment it is not a pleasant place to spend any time. We cut our visit short as we found the whole place extremely depressing and checked into the holiday inn which we enjoyed immensely!

sound of the sea

We had an apartment on the fourth floor (404) which had a super view of the sea and front of the resort.Apartments are spacious with everything required on hand,good sized bathroom with bath and shower and a/c in the bedroom but the balcony was its best feature.A tv was provided but we did not use it.We spent our days on the beach near the beach cafe Carlotta which was ideal for cold drinks, snacks etc.We enjoyed our stay in the Algar and will return in October 2015 for another stay.Wifi was hit and miss with leaning device over the balcony for best reception

Great stay

Great hotel, excellent location right on the beach, staff are great and very helpful. They have free internet in the lobby and the tourist office outside has free WiFi, not very reliable but does the job. Cleanliness is superb and the room has everything and more for self catering. Try the municipal market for fresh fruit, veg and sea food, next door to the school at the back street. The restaurant Balbino at the back of the market is very good and service is great. I recommend this hotel if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a great location.

The best thing about my stay was...

The sea view is just great from the balcony.

This was our 2nd year to stay at the Algar apartments. Not much has changed since our last visit but what I like about them mostly is their central location. They are currently upgrading the rooms and I wouid certainly consider returning

Great location and clean

Great clean hotel and although the pool is really small it's great for kids as it's not deep so kids can splash around while parents sunbathe knowing kids are safe

Very pleasant and relaxing holiday

Friendly and efficient staff, apartment very clean. The rooftop sun lounge was a very nice place to chill out and the bar and food was very good on the ground floor. All within a few yards of the beach, restaurants and the old town. We will be back soon.

Absolute value for money!

Spent 11 nights there and it was brilliant! Check in was easy with very helpful staff. For the money, the room was fantastic! We booked basic but little touches like the cushions an matching throw made it look quite chic! Very clean and beds changed on a regular basis. Kitchen area was very adequate. Toaster needs to be handled with care as it gets very hot! Could do with a couple of smaller saucepans for boiling eggs etc but that's just me being picky! On the whole, for the price it was fantastic. Only regret is not booking a 1 bed apartment with full sea view but stay away from floor 7. They have a brick wall n not glass so you have to stand to see the sea. Rooftop pool is a lovely area, bit hot but you can sit on comfy seat stand get a bit of breeze! Would I stay there again? Without a doubt and would also recommend which is something I don't do lightly!

The best thing about my stay was...

The whole place especially reception and the bar attached. Not part of the hotel but service, food and staff are A1

Great View

Was greeted by a friendly helpful young woman. My room was ready, despite my early arrival. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The linen was changed several times during my stay. The room cleaned daily. The most noise at night came from the roar of the surf on the beach. The roof pool area becomes a bit of a scramble, during busy periods, to get a nice spot.

The best thing about my stay was...

A total relax

What a view!

We booked this for the amazing view and we were not disappointed! Right in the middle of the main tourist area and 20 paces or so to the beach. And there are even better views from the rooftop pool area which is a lovely place to chill out although the pool is very small and shallow. The apartments could do with a bit of a refurb. They were unusually set out in that the kitchen and dining area were as you entered the apartment, with the bedroom having the balcony. This was a bit odd but I suppose it wouldn't put most folk off. Maid service every day and very helpful reception staff. The view and location were the main things and they were excellent.

Central, good quality aparthotel

This aparthotel is a gem, very central in this lovely resort with everything you could need close to hand, restaurants, bars and directly opposite a beautiful sandy well kept beach.Very good for a comfortable self catering stay with ample space in the living area and bedroom and lots of storage for clothes with a large wardrobe and several sets of drawers. The kitchen area was compact being just a sink unit and cooker and unusually the cutlery and plates etc are kept in the television cabinet but there is a table and four chairs and the sofa bed was an L shape which opened out to good size double. The bedroom had a balcony big enough for a small table and a few chairs but the best thing about it is the view overlooking the beach, sea and pedestirianished promenade. There is a sun trap of a roof top pool with comfortable beds and a shaded seating area. Cleaning was done daily and was to a good standard.I would return and definitely return to this accommodation.

A great alternastive to conventional hotels

The Algar is in the ideal location on the seafront, the staff were all extremely pleasant and helpful. Our apartment was a little dated but immaculately clean and very good value for money. The bar served very good snack meals and is the perfect stop for lunch, again the staff were excellent. The roof top pool is very attractive with good views along the beach and sea. We visit Armacao de Pera twice a year but this was our fist time at the Algar, we will certainly use it again.

Cleanliness and the friendly staff made us feel very welcome
