    We could not have been more pleased with our stay at the Sol e Mar. It was everything that we had expected it to be and more. If we go back to Portugal and we will for sure, we will stay at the Sol e Mar again.

    We honestly cannot say anything bad about our stay at ther Sol e Mar. It was perfect.

    This was our second time staying in the Sol e Mar and we love it. The location is perfect for both beach and restaurants etc. Very friendly staff.

    Fabulous

    The fact that you go down the stairs and you are at the beach!

    The fact that there was an Indian playing outside the hotel for hours and hours. It was a bit annoying having to listen to the same music for a week...

    O hotel esta situado mesmo à frente da praia.

    O ar condicionado não funcionava. é impossivel estacionar o carro á frente do hotel. Para um hotel de 4 estrelas, o pequeno almoço podia ter mais variedade.

    Central location. Good value for money.

    One of the receptionists was very agressive and unfriendly.

    Superb

    I was not greatly impressed with the breakfast, but everything else about this hotel is brilliant. Staff helpful and friendly; very good English; location wonderful for beach and night life and shopping. I hope to go back to Albufeira and the Sol e Mar is where I would want to stay. It really is squeaky clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

    Breakfasts just ok

    Great location,with excellent,friendly staff. The hotel decor is a bit dated, but it didn't detract from the holiday. The bedroom was spacious,with a fantastic seaview.

    Good

    chill out on beach. Easy access to restaurants. Staff very helpful and friendly.

    Choice of cereal limited, layout of breakfast could be better organised, limited amount of cereals and only teaspoons instead of dessert spoons to eat them. Entertainment could be better and a bit more lively in the evenings.

    The location of this hotel is stunning. You wake up every morning to the sight of the sea and beach. It is breath taking. There is a lift directly from the hotel down to the beach so you don't have to walk down the cliff yourself. Very nice lounge area and you are really close to all the resteraunts and town square without hearing any of the noise - Brilliant.

    The breakfast was as previously reviewed by others; Very repetitive and a bit bland. The cooked breakfast option is very poor. Bacon only appeared once on the options throughout an entire weeks stay and the hotel insists on providing hotdog style sausages instead of the sausages we like with our breakfast in the UK. Having said that though, there is enough choice to be able to fill your belly before the day begins and it is convenient. In the lounge there is a pool table but this is charged at 7 euros an hour which is too expensive. 2 other small things to bear in mind - the location of the hotel means a bus cannot get to the hotel and drops you off '100meters' away (we were told. So organise a private transfer or minibus to and from the airport. Secondly, the lifts only go upto the 5th floor so if you stay on the 6th, you have to walk up a flight of stairs. Other than that, there should be no problems.
