2/10 Okay

Very Basic

, Scotland

We stayed here for 11 nights in October. When I booked in April I emailed and requested a room on a high floor facing the town (no reply) We got a room below reception facing the back street. Girl at reception not interested in helping. Room (213) very basic and needs updating, small room and not a lot of storage space. Small bathroom with great shower. Kept spotlessly clean with maids in every day. We were room only so can't comment on breakfast and the bar was only open occasionally. The pool was quite small but ok. We would not stay here again which is a shame because it is in a perfect location.

Hotel is set in.the centre of albuferia old town, just away from the crowds. Location was fab. The hotel is basic but very clean. We were room only so not sure about breakfast it looked continental only and again basic. The bar area is nice unfortunately the bar des not open very often nor did it have any atmosphere. Overall we got what we paid for the pool area is poor very little space and certainly not enticing.

Vila Recife - Pleasantly Surprised

, Dublin, Ireland

We have just returned from an 8 day stay in Vila Recife and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Ok so It's an old building, but it has been well kept and it's an authentic Portugese building, if you want a modern hotel there are plenty of them in Albufeira, but Vila Recife is old style which personally I prefer. The view from our apartment was stunning just like a post card. The rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels provided also on a daily basis. Villa Recife is in a great location, close to the beach and also close to really good restaurants with exceptional food and picturesque views. Price wise villa Recife is exceptional value, we will definitely be returning and and I will be recommending it to friends and family.

Incredible Value For Money

, Ireland

We just returned from a 5 night stay at Vila Recife. The rooms are basic but functional. The cleaners come round every day and change all towels, make beds etc. There is a fridge in the room, and kettles can be requested at no extra charge. The location is so central to the Old Town and the beach. We would return here in a heartbeat as it was such good value for money. The aircon in our room was really good, and we enjoyed a couple of days by the pool which is a great sun-trap. I wouldn't necessarily come here for a romantic break but for our no frills/hassle free mother/daughter getaway it was perfect.

Good basic hotel in a great location

, Sheffield

My husband and I have just returned from Vila Recife. We knew before we arrived not to expect a luxurious hotel but it was actually much nicer than anticipated. It is situated in a prominent position at the top of a hill in the Old Town. We stayed in Room 054 which is on the same floor as the pool in fact you just have to step over the balcony to bag yourself a sun bed. We didn't have any problem with getting a sun bed but they could do with investing in some new ones as they are really dated. Breakfast is continental style, lovely fresh bread rolls with ham and cheese, also cereals and sliced bread to toast. Tea coffee and fruit juice is available. Free wifi is available but only in the bar/breakfast area and outside on the front patio. The hotel is spotlessly clean and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is dated and a little shabby in places but well worth the money paid and we wouldn't hesitate in returning.

Pleasant

, Birmingham England

I found this accommodation basic but clean and tidy. Very basic breakfast which would be enhanced by boiled eggs(?) and perhaps tomatoes. The staff (both day & night) were pleasant and helpful and when I return to Portugal I will definitely choose this hotel.

The general quietness and the good location

A nice break

, Wales

We stayed at the Vila Recife Monday to Friday. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It's on a slight hill but a nice walk down into the square. The rooms were basic but all you need was there. Towels and bedding changed often. Would we go back there yes. Staff were helpful and polite.

I have to say the room we had (319) not the best of , but I guess if I had gone to reception we could have changed . Cleaners in every day , towels changed every day too . Just a few minutes to town and all . For £60 EACH FOR 8 DAYS !!!! Need I say more ?

basic hotel

, West Yorkshire

Basic clean hotel in good location.Noisy at night from square as we had pool view overlooking the town. but soon got used to the noise. Downfall for our party of 11 over 50,s was the bar closed after 2 days(9th October).We like a bar or at least a lounge where we can meet up and finish the evening with a night cap. Disappointing as this was not stated on hotel description. Best thing rooftop terraces on 4th and 5th floor.Have been to better hotels in Albufeira

Hotel tired but clean - but good price for your stay

, Stafford

Although hotel is a little "tired" rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, linen and towels are very clean. It's an ideal place to have as a base, so near to everything - good restaurants and bars that are very reasonably priced and the beach. Request a room at the top as level 1 & 2 has only wall views! And you do get those above flicking ash and cigs down am afraid :( We asked for sea view as we booked in Jan but were told first come first served ??? ... Otherwise we were actually quite pleased with this hotel and you do get what u pay for basic but very very clean.
