My partner and I stayed in the beginning of February for a week half board and had a lovely time, check in was very quick and easy staff at reception very helpful with any requests or queries we had. Room was spacious thou a twin instead of the double we had booked we didn’t bother to ask for a change of room, beds were very comfortable plenty of storage and room very clean , free safe and tea making facilities plus good channels on tv ! Breakfast was very good and well presented buffet style, we particularly enjoyed a glass of prosecco each morning,the evening meal was a three course Meal which we both really enjoyed the waiters were very attentive and able to tweak the menu for me as I don’t eat meat ,the soups were especially delicious.if your looking for a lively place with lots of entertainment you might be disappointed it’s an adult only with just a bar in the evening and two nights a week a brilliant musician comes to play various instruments whilst you relax In the comfy seating,the hotel is near a lovely sandy beach via steps and not too far from the shops and bars thou quite a few were closed but just preparing to open ready for the warmer weather a trip to the old town is a must and we enjoyed a trip to silves to visit the castle and enjoy a lovely lunch from one of the local cafes, we went to the algarve and to this hotel so we have a relaxing week and spend some quality time together which we did

Beautiful modern hotel. Could not fault it in anyway. The room was lovely size, great view over the sea. The breakfast for delicious fantastic choice and service was excellent. The pool area was very nice, but no one ventured in as the weather and pool temperature too cold. It was our silver wedding and the hotel delivered to our room on arrival sparkling wine and dessert which was very much appreciated, and upgraded the room. The hotel is very modern and classy, and great value for money. Would recommend to anyone.

Seen this hotel last December when staying in one of the apartments surrounding it , our first impression then was this looks a very nice hotel would love to stay here. Well we got home and booked this hotel for late February. We had the cheaper room looking inland over the road room 202 . The room was very clean and well presented, the twin beds were luxurious and very comfortable, TVs with English channels , fridge and tea and coffee all to hand . Breakfast good but did not like the sausage and bacon , you cannot please everybody, plenty of fruit, orange juice was the best we have tasted in any hotel we have stayed in. All the staff are friendly right down to the cleaners.This was our 6th visit to Albufeira in 6 different establishments, this was the best by far , I would highly recommend it, and if I ever go back to Albufeira this is definitely the hotel I will book.

Visited in October 2017 with the family. This is a nice clean and spacious hotel. The breakfast which was included was very good. All the rooms had working TVs and air conditioning. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay just outside the main area of Albufeira as it’s walking distance.

Stayed two weeks here, after upgrading to a deluxe room with sea view, slippers and bathrobes (well worth it). Efficient check in, the room was spotlessly clean, with a great sea view. Housekeeping is excellent, clean bedding and towels each day. Though they are stingy with toilet rolls. Coffee machine a nice touch, yiur need to ask for capsules though. Breakfast, plentiful and varied, but as with all buffet breakfasts warm at best. Breakfast staff v friendly and helpful. Only had dinner the once as it was a disaster. Soup was tasteless and my duck raw, a good vet would get it quacking again. Sent it back didn’t pay for it, very poor customer service recovery, wouldn’t recommend the restaurant. Cocktails terrible. Tried two the worse I’ve ever had. Wouldn’t recommend. Went to the hangover bar for excellent g n t’s go there instead of the hotel. Donaldo’s at the top of the strip is the best restaurant we ate there 6 times. Brilliant place! We are returning in October as the hotel is fantastic. Regrettably the pool was contaminated for our final week there which was a shame. As cordoned off.

The hotel such a beautiful hotel and the staff are wonderful. The breakfast is great and the bed was very comfortable . An highly recommend hotel, which is away from the busy town but not too far away.

A warm welcome greated us on arrivel from the receptionists. Quick and efficient check in all cheerfully done. The decor of the hotel is ultra modern and all spotlesslyclean. Our room over looked a 'orchard', which saw the sun in the early morning. Very comfortable bed and lashings of hot water in the shower/bath. Clean towels daily and bed linin change every 5 days. Breakfast was a huge choice of continental/European/English.The beach is a short walk away, down a series of steps but it is a very steep incline. It is however worth the walk. Usual facilities within a short walk and the bus stop is just round the corner. The hotel staff bent over backwards to be helpful and always cheerful. Highly recommend this hotel.

This was our second visit to the Aqua Pedra. What a great hotel this is. Spotlessly clean, excellent breakfast, buffet style, all the hot and cold food you could want. The staff in this hotel are lovely. Everyone from the cleaners to the manager has a smile, and are always polite, friendly and helpful. The location is ideal for us, 5 minute walk to the beach, and just 10 minutes in a cab to Albufeira old town, about 5 euro. Looking forward to our next visit.
