The best of this hotel is the price. Breakfast also included. Not so far from the center, and the beach is close too. The rooms was always clean! The bed was too soft. It is maybe good for pensioners, but not for a young couple. The hotel is at the main road, so if your window looks there, you will have a noisy night. The light in the bathroom was poor. The other little bad thing is about the breakfast. It is from 8-10, but it is strongly advised to get there until 9, because there is almost nothing at 9:30.
The map shows the hotel behind the BULL ring but in reality it is a further 4 KM, if the map was correct I would not have booked the hotel The map shows the hotel behind the BULL ring but in reality it is a further 4 KM, if the map was correct I would not have booked the hotel
Good basic hotel. Coffee facilities at breakfast and juice drinks not very good.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Liked that it was such a short walk to the beach. Hot part of breakfast buffet was not kept hot throughout the breakfast time and there were mornings were there was no hot breakfast. Rooms are advertised as modern and soundproof, this was not the case for us, our room was street side and often people were standing outside our room window, you could hear everything they said and the traffic is quite loud. Privacy is also not great for this room. Beds are unusally hard. The fan in the bathroom did not work and there was damp on the walls and shower curtain due to this. The bar on the occasions we ventured up there had no staff was no not an option for a cool drink. Room was not cleaned completely on our arrival, but was cleaned very well throughout our week there.
Very clean, staff are friendly & helpful. Value for money. Very basic continental breakfast. Our room was facing main road and this is very noisy, we changed our room but ended up with room behind reception! Residents and people coming to hotel late at night make such a noise and sometimes conversations went on well into small hours of night. There are no sea view rooms.
Good staff. Location.
Welcoming and courteous staff, good clean room and conditions, breakfast very good and adequate for our needs. Forseeable Car Parking difficulties at high season and difficult to drive and reverse was not easy.
The possibility of taking our small dog and the hotel giving good access for us to take the dog out the back Mould on the walls and not very well aired
Clean and simple
Godt hotel til pengene, ligger højt med god udsigt, personalet er søde med ved ikke så meget. Der er køleskab på værelset. Der er meget stille. Der er ca. 1 km til byen og stranden med stejle gader og mange trapper. Kan ikke anbefales til gangbesværet.
Den fantastiske udsigt over byen og bugten. Personalet i Receptionen er rigtige søde og behjælpelige... Morgenmaden var en dårlig kvalietet og kan ikke anbefales... Lad vær at bestille det på forhånd. Hotellet kan evt. forbedre niveauet.
Rigtig godt hotel med super venligt personale.
I found the manager and staff very friendly. The manager in particular tried very hard to be helpful at all times and was particularly friendly towards the children. The beaches and caves were well within walking distance and despite being at the peak of the holiday season it there were sufficient beaches not to be too crowded. One of the more refreshing aspects of the holiday, however, was that the hotel had a fair mixture of French and Portugese guests as well as the English The hotel would have been better improved if the rooms were air conditioned.
Brilliant resort, unfortunately no a/c available
Nice staff, beautiful enviroment, parking very near from the appartment. Not very efficient staff at the restaurant, shabby mini market with no basic products like milk, we did not find another supermarket near the appartments, in the kitchen there were some useful utensils missing.
The villa had very very old and crappy furniture, the sofas were very dirty, the floor was not clean and there was dust lying in every surface. The blankets and sheets smell musty and one of the beds was broken. There was a tiny TV in the living room with very poor signal. The cooker in the kitchen was very old and did not work properly (too slow). To make everything worst on the first day there was no hot water (solved after a couple of hours) and on the second day there was no water at all (repaired after some hours of waiting). We got to know that there are some villas renovated however we got a non-renovated villa and the overall experience was terrible. I would have better conditions in a camping site.
nothing very old furniture, towels, pillow, almost every thing old and the worst one is the dirty sofa, Small old cheep TV has 3 local Chanel, no Internet.the address is good for local or some one have been their , my GPS could not locate it i had to spend time and money asking for help
Lovely hotel, rooms where spotless. Rooms even had fairy liquid supplied, best equiped self catering acom that I have ever stayed in Large rooms with plenty of space, cleaned every day Location great few mins walk to strip and beach No air conditioning working in the rooms, it was so hot we had to sleep with all doors an windows open
Maid service every day. Fresh towels every 2 days. 24 hour reception. Friendly, helpful staff. Good sunbeds, always available. Free parking right outside hotel. 3 minute walk to the beach. Full cooker with oven. Air conditioning which was absolutely essential as temperature was constantly above 28 degrees, often into the 30's. Fridge was a bit dodgy, never seemed to get cold enough. Air conditioning very slow to cool room. Broke down completely for one night. 2 days before we arrived, we had a phone call to tell us that they could not accommodate us but would put us up in Alvor, which we did not want. Finally after many phone calls, at 6pm the evening before we travelled, it was confirmed that they would take us after all. Maria, the receptionist who dealt with us was great, but it was a very bad way to start our holiday.
Location close to beach. Studio are very old and dark. Loud airco. Got another room after complaints, was better but still... Rooms in August are pretty expensive for what you get. Not worth the 3*
booked 2 bedroom appartment really spacious,comfortable, 2 bathrooms, great shower, flat screen big tv, all the channels liked all but be careful we heard there was a break in to an appartment this can happen anywhere
The location was great as we had easy access to the strip, old town and beach. Shops etc were also close by. The lumpy pillows made for restless sleeps
The Studio apartment that I booked were full but the hotel gave us a one bedroom apartment and honoured the price of the studio apartment. The pool side area is lovely and the snack bar is keenly priced for pool side snacks. Good location between the strip and the old town. The hotel also allowed us to check out at 2.30 as we were not leaving until then! Excellent service all round! Well worth a visit, I would highly recommend the Tropical Sol.
i liked bedrooms very large reception area very inviting very clean/tidy booked a studio apt but got a 1 bedroom apt no entertainment of any sort no background music even
We were impressed with the staff who were very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of repeat clientele for that reason The Hotel has a few restaurants to choose from so you can choose to dine in any one of them. We liked Arte Nautica as it is on the beach in Armacao de Pera - stunning location and brilliant fish, or you can have a snack The location isnt so great as it is out of town. If you are not mobile you will need to hire a car or take a taxi which are cheap and plentiful. The staff seemed to push their very expensive New Year dinner and there wasnt much choice. to dine elsewhere. They also naughtily put the costs of two New Years dinner on our bill when we hadnt even booked or attended the event which goes to show that behind the staff smiles there is the pound signs motive to make as much money as possible from their guests! We were not convinced the hospitality was genuine for that reason especially when the staff all repeated the same sentence - is there anything we can do for you. It seemed they attended a management school and were taught to say that
Variety of restaurants, quality of food, amazing beach with beds and professional level of SPA. Servants in the restaurants expressed quite strong dissatisfaction if the tips were less than 10 %.
The variety of facilities, the high standard, the staff, and the wonderful gardens. Beds could be better. Do not like two singles pushed together to make a double or king. Need better beds.
Everything was brilliant,with the exception of below. Food was not up to a good standard, but was not overpriced.
Well kept hotel and equally smart guests. Excellent food & beverage. Interior decor style needs updating.
hotel was of a very high standard and we were very well treated by the staff. not really
In addition to the above, I liked the peace & tranquility & space in general, in particular the spacious grounds, gardens etc. I was disappointed with the quality of furniture on my balcony given the fact that I observed furniture of quality in similar suites where I was based, furniture on my balcony was that of a 1 or 2 star Hotel, I have already indicated my disaproval on the personal questionaire at the Hotel, I would at some stage like a report directly to me regarding the unsuitable furniture on my balcony, I stayed in 7 Oasis Parc at the Hotel.
excellent service by staff, beautiful grounds, private beach & overall pleasant ambience. Good buffet breakfast Forget the bar snacks - both too expensive and very poorly prepared. The main restaurant was acceptable - just. The food was OK but not exceptional however the prices were very high. You can easily find a better dining experience outside the hotel so only go to this restaurant if you really don't want to leave the hotel surroundings.
To stay was very pleasant, hotel staff friendly, the room was clean, the fridge in the room was really handy...I really like the hotel, definitelly will come back.. Just a one thing, it wasnt a double bed in a ''double bed room'',but two single ones, what wasnt relly good...
Excellent loction in Albufeira, very satisfying "included" hot breakfast and use of free van-service into old town.
the view, cocktails the local steak bar prices
Pool area is great and very friendly staff
very relaxing no
The breakfast is very good and the staff are very nice and helpful.... It was not a 4 star hotel it needs a bit of work (which seemed to be happening). this is our groups 2nd year staying there and it is fine, cheap and cheerful in a good location
room and general layout of hotel was excellent. was a bit noisy at night time, reception staff weren't very helpful.
Comfort of room staff were very kind and helpful pool facilities all round a great hotel with good attractions nearby everything was perfect no faults at all
The room that I had was excellent.
We had very small rooms with no balconys. All the other rooms were much larger with balconys, we asked for an upgrade and offered to pay extra, but the hotel staff said all the rooms were full, this was not peak season and we saw many empty rooms.The staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Check your booking or they will give these small rooms with a tiny window like a cell. Not nice!!!!
Peaceful, relaxing, friendly staff distamce from town centre, no car parking, payment terms - cash only
It's nice and quiet.
Quiet and peaceful yet 10 mins walk from beach and 10 mins to centre by car/taxi. Beautiful breakfast and courteous staff.
peaceful, nice quiet pool, small number of rooms,short distance by taxi into town, friendly staff,lovely beach within walking distance
very quiet place and very comfortable. no private park for the car's and no fridge on the room
We have stayed at Vila Channa before and chose to go back as we were so impressed by the location, service and cleanliness of the hotel, and were not disappointed this time. It is such a peaceful place and makes for a truly relaxing holiday. One member of the staff in particular, Sonia, went out of her way to make sure we had a perfect stay and she is a real asset to the hotel. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anybody looking for a quiet location, excellent service and the perfect chill out holiday!
the hotel is quiet and very silent. no parking, the breakfast should be better
Venlig modtagelse, venlig og smilende dame i morgenmadsrestauranten. Hjælpsomt personale som ved hvordan "kræsne" gæster skal tumles. Gode omgivelser og ikke overrendt, men det var jo også medio november. Det fandtes lidt pudsigt med de niveauspring fra værelser til restaurant. men en yderdør var pga tiden blokeret.
Min veninde og jeg har haft et helt fantastisk ophold. Vi har absolut ingen klager og vender tilbage igen til efteråret. Helt perfekt til vores form for ferie. Fuldstændig fantatsiske værelser..Perfekt belligenhed I forhold til stranden og The Strip Brusehovedet på badeværelset var meget dårligt. Der kom næsten ingen vand ud og bruseren kunne ikke siddde fast på væggen. Vi savnede et lidt større supermarkedet lige omkring hotellet..
God beliggenhed, acceptabel rengøring, lejlighed ok Nedslidt, dårlig at man ikke håndhæver at solstole ved poolen ikke må reserveres ved at folk smider deres håndklæder meget tidligt på dagen, hvorefter andre ikke kan få plads.
localisation, le concepte apartement
Bright comfortable Apartments, in a quiet relaxing area. Central to all amenities. No complaints. Would go back again.
The apartment was nice looking, very clean and the location was pretty good, only few minutes walk to the beach and the old town, and right beside supermarket. Our window had a view at a huge, busy roundabout, very noisy at night. The girl at a recepton never told us about the indoor pool at their sister hotel that we could have used free of charge.
Having the swimming pool at the hotel and it's convenient location to everything. Kitchenette not very well equiped, very small saucepan, no kettle, no grill.
Nice and comfortable hotel, good swimming pool a distance to the ocean is a bit far by foot
The room, balcony and bathroom were spacious Busy roundabout right outside hotel and a large pack of homeless dogs running in the streets and barking early morning, 4am most mornings.
its central location for the shops and three nice cafes right outside the front door. this was our second visit in eight weeks and the nice receptionist we knew from last trip, turned quiet nasty and implied we were fools for asking for a room on the sunnyside
very basic and tired looking apart all facilities closed since 6th oct not advised when booking
The staff were helpful and very friendly. Cleaning was done everyday and the situation of the hotel is perfect for the Fisherman's Beach which is a short 10 min walk away. Hotel is opposite a supermarket as well, which is very useful
Good situation, room was good size Some elements of fridge and bathroom was bad condition. If stay just few days it's no idea to buy dishwashing things - hotel could give these.
meget generet trafikstøj på hele bagside af hotelet >> undtaget mel kl 3 og og kl 5 om morgenen >> skyldes en hovedvej lige forbi ):
Dejligt hotel med mange gode punkter. Vi var familie med 2 børn på 8 og 14 og de elskede stedet. Værelsets renhed var i top, ren håndklæder hver dag. Personalet super. Jeg føler at vi har fået meget for vores penge. Vi er glad for vores ophold på Oceanus
the peace and quiet athmosphere. the ease of access to all the facilities. closeness to pool and 'strip' only thing... no shampoo or soap supplied apart from arrival day.
The rooms was spacious, very clean. Good kitchen facilities. Nice big, comfortable bed. Excellent facilities in general. Large Pool area. Situated off the strip on quiet street, but only a short walk to the action. And short 4euro taxi ride to the old town. Overall, had a great holiday with my girlfriend, and found it a lovely place to stay.
Very helpful and friendly staff and the good size of the apartment. Breakfast was excellent.
food excellant no
spacious room and great view
Very friendly bar man with great English
Everything - room facilities first class - like being home from home. Dishwasher, microwave, many kitchen utensils too numerous to mention. DVD Player and a selection of British channels on TV. Location was excellent - two minutes to numerous bars/restaurants yet quiet. Poolside sufficient loungers and space to relax in the daytime. Good food at hotel. All in all totally enjoyable experience The only think I did not like about this hotel was having to go home. Will definetely return in the very near future.
I liked the sport facilities that you have on site! I think your rooms are spacious! Cold water in the pool
The welcome from the staff and the fact that we did not reach the hotel till 9.20pm were still able to get a meal in the resturant, where the staff were most friendly. None
Allocate a quiet room on upper floor as requested. Food, both quality and quantity excellent. Standard as we expected from a Thomson Gold hotel. Nothing
The hotel was one of the best we stayed in
Elegant interior with everything we could wish for on a walking holiday. The facilities were superb and convenient. Unfortunately we weren't able to sample the outside pool - wrong time of year, too cold, but the set up looked very enticing. Thought some of the bathroom fittings etc were beginning to show their age...but not in a major way.
We had spent three nights here and were ready at the airport for departure when the volcano errupted in Iceland. The staff were superb.A frantic phonecall from us to the hotel ensured we had a room for as long as necessary.They price-matched booking. com and helped us in every possible way.We were given a superior room, free internet access and a same day laundry service because our supply of clean clothes was diminishing.Everyone was so caring and sympathetic.The hotel is set in lovely gardens with a beautiful pool area which is kept spotless.A five minute walk takes you to a selection of restaurants.Hugo's bar is a friendly place for either lunch or an after dinner drink and we can highly reccommend Tanias for lunch or dinner.
Fabulous hotel, friendly attentative staff, 5* comfort, very clean & stylish, lovely pool & spa facilities, great food & service. Perfect location close to sea & cliff walks & all local amenities/restaurants. Away from the madness of Albufeira and no children so very quiet & restful. Excellent!...will return very soon, thanks! Nothing springs to mind, no complaints at all!
Enthusiastic, cheerful and informative attitude from Recepcion, and large, clean room. The noisy (intrusive) nature of the exercise routine which was carried out by the poolside. The very poor quality of the orange juice, in a country where the fruit is good, plentiful and cheap.
lovely room with excellent cleanliness
