Excellent hotel in very good location

Stayed here for just three nights and from check in to check out everything was excellent. Rooms spacious and all have sea view/fridge and safe deposit box. Towels changed daily and breakfast buffet was good with a good selection of both hot and cold food. Great location for the old town with it's shops, bars and plenty of eating places. Hotel right on beach with sunbeds for hire at 5 euro per day.

Friendly and clean, ideal location

This is one of the first hotels to be built in Albufeira Old Town, and is in the best possible location - right on the beach, all rooms sea facing and a minute's walk from the start of the old town. It is spotlessly clean, but does need upgrading-though the matresses were brand new and comfy. The rooms are large, with lovely balconies. There is air con, which we didn't need for our Christmas stay. The room and other areas was comfortably warm day and night, so I imagine there was heating but it was silent and not visible. The half board was super value-though not much choice for evening meal, it was good quality. The bar prices were much the same as in the town, and there was pianist/singer entertainment. Christmas Day gala dinner was superb.

Christmas Day

We have stayed at the Sol e Mar on numerous occasions but this was our first Christmas Day there.. As usual the staff were fabulous, the Gala Dinner was superb and the entertainment from Nuno was outstanding. We had such a great time that we have already booked with friends for next Christmas!
