Posted by Caroline Lomas April 29, 2009

Please can you answer me a question about Vale de Carros. We have booked in this hotel in June and the company that we have booked with said that things like kettles, iron etc can be hired, but on your web site it says that there are hot drink hot making facilities and microwave can be found in the apartment. Please can you tell me which is true as I don’t want to bring any of these things if they are already in the room

Hi Caroline,

When we conducted our review, hot drink making facilities were included, but of course things do change from season to season (and in some cases from one apartment to the next), so I would advise you to contact the hotel directly to be 100% sure.

I would like to book here but I am too concerned with the fact I have to bring these with me or hire at the location. Surely you cannot advertise that these facilities are available as part of the package then charge for them??

How far aways is the Abuferia nightlife from the apartments?

Posted by I Love Algarve May 24, 2010

Hi Holly,

The apartments are around 10km from the main Albufeira action and the famous Strip.. It’s fairly easy to grab a bus there during the day and a taxi back at night.

If you prefer to be closer to the action, then perhaps something like the Vila Petra Hotel would be better?

We have stayed here five times. It is quiet but not dull,the food is ok as is the beer which is cold.

The first time we stayed there was just two dogs barking,this time (our fifth visit) we had the pleasure of six dogs competing for the longest and loudest barking session.ear plugs are a necessity. Be warned. It will get to you even the most placid of people will get drawn.

my family stayed at these apartments Oct 2010, they were a bit out of the way but fortunately there were a few families there at the same time so we were happy to stay by the small bar, no good if you are looking for nightlife though. the staff were friendly but the apts were a bit shabby, the shower hose kept falling of the whilst you were washing and the shelf in the bathroom was hanging off so we were unable to put stuff on it, but other than this it was clean, there were dogs barking but to be honest when you’ve had a few drinks you don’t really notice it too much, there was no playground as stated and no microwave or kettle but you were able to hire a kettle, toaster and iron if needed, I just heated water on the hob for tea and coffee. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. We are coming back to Albufeira again this year as we love the area, but we are staying in apts nearer to the old town and beach.
