A la Carte was disappointing for the money we paid

Posted Jul 13, 2017
Overall we had a fantastic week the hotel,location , staff and food were very good. We just felt that the A la carte was a bit pricey for what we got.

Exceptionally clean hotel, staff very friendly

Posted Jul 13, 2017
A large clean hotel, a short walk to the beach (quite a lot of steps). A taxi ride from Albufeira old town, where it's bustling and vibrant. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants. For a quieter meal try the restaurants within 15 min walk of hotel, the Praia Grande, has a nice terrace, overlooking the sea and the food was good. Also the Don Dinis, for cocktails or fine dining.

Fabulous Hotel for a relaxing break!!!

Posted Jul 1, 2017
We enjoyed our time at the hotel and found the facilities to be quite good especially its proximity to a good beach. Reception staff was quite helpful and provided us with as much information as possible. They do have a live musician playing at their restaurant during dinner hours which was also quite romantic however felt they could improve upon the food.

Spacious, clean hotel and great staff

Posted Jun 30, 2017
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, proximity to the beach, good food
Cons: Could have more area around the pool
Location: Easy access to the beach directly from the hotel. Easy access to Albufeira.
Atlanticos is a modern, clean and spacious hotel with convenient access to the beach at Sao Rafael and Arrifes. Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. Rooms are large and comfortable and no noise bleed between rooms. There were no armchairs although a couple of nice upholstered chairs provided. Breakfast a wide ranging buffet which would lead suit any diet. Space around the pool is adequate. The sun beds are very good, easy shade in the palm trees or under an umbrella. Towels are provided daily to use in the pool area. Gardens are simple with olive and palm trees and are quite large. Underground parking facilities are available. Overall a good place to stay

Secluded but stunning

Posted Jun 30, 2017
The room, staff, facilities, location are all outstanding. The staff simply cannot do enough to help. If you are only staying a few days you do not even need to venture from the hotel vicinity. There is a beach a 2 minute walk through the grounds. The pool is great. We would recommend the a la carte restaurant as the food and service is top quality. We enjoyed the rooftop bar with its different singers every night. The indoor pool is also worth the £10 shower caps. Just can't recommend enough!

Amazing 5 star!

Posted Jun 5, 2017
Pros: the pools and close to the beach. Breakfast was amazing too.
Cons: Dinner options - buffet did not have that much to choose from
Location: Did not venture very far from the hotel, however the beach was very close by and just down some stairs. This was an amazing beach!
the staff could not do more to be helpful to us. The suite was amazing and overlooking the pool. I will definitely be returning to this hotel.
