This is a great location, friendly staff and very comfortable bed with beach views if selected. Value for the money is what sets this no frills hotel apart.

I would highly recommend this place. It is close to the water for swimming and not far from the marina. It is a family business and they treat you like family.

Frentomar September 2022
Just loved this place, peace and quiet but just a short walk into the old town. Nothing flash but spotlessly clean and really nice staff. Lovely room and balcony with a view to die for. One minute from the lift down to the beach and bars and restaurants along the street. Will definately be back next year.

Little Hideaway Above the Sea
This small and nondescript hotel has a great location for walking onto the amazing beach or into the lively Old Town. Public transportation is not great in Albufeira, but that's not the fault of the hotel. You need to do a lot of walking or rely on taxis or Uber. The staff is helpful about local information. Note: the train AND bus stations are about 8 Km from the city, so they're not a viable option for everyday usage.

Good value for money
Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel — finding affordable accommodation in peak season was difficult, so this one was picked just because of the price. But it turned it to be a good pick: great location between the old town and marina, close to the beach. The room was basic, but ‘good basic’. Housekeeping was done to a good standard. No complaints and would happily stay there again.

Great little find.
Great views of the beach. Comfy bed to sleep in. They allowed us to check in later which was nice - I just needed to contact them about our arrival time. Front desk was helpful and attentive. It was close enough to walk to the marina and the old town but couldn't hear any noise on the evenings.
