The Solferias Aparthotel Carvoerio is ideal for families who want an affordable holiday in Portugal on a self-catering basis. Nestled in a beautiful coastal location in the Algarve, the Carvoeiro fishing village doubles up as a quaint and authentic holiday resort.

The Aparthotel is situated at the top of a hill which overlooks the traditional Portuguese village and Solferias Carvoeiro has been awarded a 4 star rating which is high in this area of the Algarve.

The Solferias Hotel isn’t just great for families who choose the Algarve for action-packed adventures, it’s also a very peaceful place to stay and perfect for romantic getaways. There are no stairs to climb so the hotel is also good for people who must use wheelchairs and small children. The decor at the hotel has been described as anachronistic, but the rooms are all clean and comfortable with everything you’d expect from a 4 star hotel in Portugal.

Because the Solferias is close to the beach and resort centre visitors can easily enjoy the surrounding area with little need for further travel. The more intrepid guests can use the free shuttle bus for connecting transport networks though and of course, to get to shops, restaurants and other attractions in the surrounding areas.

Getting to and from the airport is easy too as it is located just 57 kilometres from the hotel. Carvoeiro is a delightful and traditional fishing village and that means the seafood in the area is absolutely fantastic. If you like eating fish why not arrange a fishing trip with a local tourist company; there are many businesses throughout the Algarve who arrange fishing trips in small commercial boats, regardless of your experience level.

Facilities and Services

Solferias AparthotelThere are 64 apartments at Solferias and there are also plenty of facilities on offer too which is rare for an apartment-style hotel in the Algarve. There’s a pool with a section specifically for children and a sun terrace complete with loungers and parasols, perfect for getting a tan beneath the Algarve sun. If tennis is your kind of game you can enjoy playing it at the tennis courts and if shopping is more your style just hop aboard the free mini bus to the town or beach. The beach alone offers hours of enjoyment and relaxation and for those who prefer to stay indoors during the hotter hours of the day the hotel also runs a Bridge Club. Along with all of this there’s also a game room, gardens and a childrens’ playground.

If you don’t feel well during your stay, the hotel provides access to medical assistance and can also exchange currency, so that you never run out of Euros. There’s no need to worry about parking because customers can use the hotel spaces and the reception is open 24 hours a day so you can request help or advice any time you need it. There is even a luggage storage room and babysitting can be arranged on request. If you need clothes to be cleaned that’s no problem either, because like many other Algarve hotels, the Aparthotel offers a laundry service.

Solferias CarvoeiroRooms contain many of the facilities that you’d expect from traditional European 4 star holiday apartments, including: tea and coffee making facilities, cooking utensils and a fitted kitchen, air conditioning and heating, and king-sized or single beds. You’ll also find a telephone in your apartment along with a satellite television, a safe for your valuables and a stocked mini-bar. Most apartments also have balconies with incredible views. For families with babies cots can be placed in rooms on special request.

Customer Views

Solferias HotelThe Algarve still has a growing tourist industry and Portugal appears to go in and out of fashion. As such, little towns and villages with real communities such as Carvoeiro prosper from tourism alongside traditional trade such as fishing. On some years towns like Carvoeiro get more visitors than other years, but what this all means is that they offer value for money, an authentic Portuguese holiday experience and high quality hospitality. The locals are friendly and businesses in the Algarve are all happy to see tourists enjoying the beautiful countryside and beaches.

The main criticisms of the Solferias Aparthotel Carvoerio are that for a 4 star hotel the decor is very old fashioned, though online review boards are littered with comments from happy holiday makers saying that despite the ‘time-warp’ decor the apartments were ‘impeccably clean’, ‘incredibly good value for money’ and charming in an old fashioned rural or coastal sort of way. One customer who desperately wanted to visit the Algarve and booked a holiday at the Soferias online, said that often their party was the only one around the pool and that the staff (especially the bar staff) were very friendly and helpful.
