Quiet and lovely looking grounds and pool area

Posted Dec 1, 2017
Pros: The kitchen and bathroom were nice, especially a nice deep tub. The beds were comfortable and the unit was clean.
Cons: see above
It was secure and quiet except for the neighbour. Parking and access was relatively easy. . The unit is spacious. The dresser was broken and the walls needed a paint. The heating/cooling system right over the eating area is a poor design and not very effective. There were not enough towels and they did not supply paper towel, dish soap or a dish cloth or scrubber. Not very handy if you are staying there for just a few days. Also unfortunate that the sprinkler system hit the main large windows so it was not very pleasant to look out on the beautiful grounds through a water stained window. It's not a great location if you do not have a car as there is a marina, a few restaurants and a few small convenience stores but you must drive to get to decent shopping and beaches.

Nice spot.

Posted Oct 18, 2017
Great accommodation and pool area, nice walk into town 30mins. Free weekday shuttle bus into old town at certain times till 1600. €5 in taxi good service. Ideal place for relaxing holiday. Staff very helpful in the day and friendly but night staff let the place down with bad attitude. Please be aware that if you leave early in the morning to get your deposit back for the safe the night before because when we left there was no reception and everywhere was locked for saying it is 24hour reception.

Disappointing

Posted Jul 30, 2017 on Hotels
Disappointed with this one. Had high expectations but the overall experience was not great. The beds are some of the worst I have slept in during my 25 odd years holidaying - the mattresses were thin and lumpy and the pillows were terrible - again awfully lumpy. My Step-daughters bed was a roll out camp bed that had a V shape fold to the middle of the structure and had poor bedding. we complained and some fixes were made but it was still not great. No cleaning on some days either as we had locked our front door apparently, even though this was how we found it (so the cleaners must have been the ones to lock it), after 3 days of no cleaning, we complained and eventually got it sorted only to find that the last 2 days of our holiday also saw no cleaning (one of which is planned / rest day). Water failure during our stay too so had to flush the toilet with pool water and buy bottle for brushing teeth / washing hands. no communication on this and no offer of compensation (e.g. price of bottled water) - outage not their fault, but made for a terrible few days. Pool wonderful, staff friendly and tried to help. location ok by the Marina and 30 mins walk to old town / beech (Old town is fantastic), so loved Albufeira overall but the apartments were a let down.

Great room,large and overlooking the pool.

Posted Jul 11, 2017
Pros: The size of the apartment,size of the pool.
Cons: Room cleaning.
Location: Very close to the marina, short ride to the old town. Boat trips.
Everything was good about the apartment,the pool and reception staff.The only negative,the lady who should have tidied our room. No show for two days, asked in reception sent cleaner straight away.

Albufeira hotel near Marina

Posted May 22, 2017
Pros: The pools and grounds
Cons: Better beds/ better control of the "ant" issue
Location: Close to "Old Town Albufeira" and the marina.
Orada Apartmentos was a decent apartment/hotel in a good area. Was close to the marina and about a 20 minute walk into old town Albufeira (mostly uphill, so a good workout). It was a convenient location from which to drive to different areas around the algarve. You definitely need a car!! The resort was beautiful with wonderful pools and lovely surroundings. The apartment was spacious and had everything you needed. The only negatives would be the very HARD beds...they really could improve on this very important aspect ( perhaps mattress toppers, which is what we had at other places in the Algarve). There is only wifi at the lobby area, and the staff have to put the password in onto your device for you? Also, there were tiny bugs ?ants that seem to be an issue. It was distressing to find a number of them coming into the room from under the baseboards one evening after a long day out touring. I couldn't sleep that night just kept thinking about them!! However, when I told staff the following morning, they took care of the situation and made certain the apartment got sprayed. I was told the ant issue is a problem throughout the algarve wherever there is green space, although we didn't encounter them in any of the other 3 places we stayed. The front desk staff were pleasant enough, but compared to how warm and friendly all the local Portugese people were, I would expect an even friendlier reception from the hotel staff. Overall, a good place for the price.
