Lovely stay at a gorgeous hotel. Was all very clean and well run. All areas of the hotel also felt huge so at no point felt too crowded which was great for Covid times. Beach is also lovely and has a great beach bar. Uber to Albufiera old town or main town is between €5-€10 each way which is very reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to this hotel.
