Auramar Beach Resort3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Yes ok, we were in a group of 10 and on a stag but that doesn't excuse some of the negatives of this place. The immediate sight of a run down and dated hotel, unwelcoming staff at reception and later in each bar, basic and unstructured all inclusive meals, a really cold pool, and vintage (but poor) standard rooms. The best thing about this place was the walk from there and being able to get to the bars and restaurants quickly. To add - we were a well behaved group so there is no malice behind this review.
Returned recently from the aurama beach after having 10 great days there . the food was brilliant so I dont no what the moaning lot eat at home probably caviar or lobster or macdonalds ,The staff work very long hours and found them to be polite.Unfortunately you all ways get people that go on holiday and dont care less about any body but them selves who ruin it for the rest of us by swearing and shouting but thats not aurama beaches fault.
Just returned from a 10 day holiday at this resort. Travelled with family, who had booked holiday, bit dissapointed that we didn't get rooms in same block one was in block A other in block C. Certainly not the place to stay if you have a problem with stairs. Some areas of Hotel bit tired and in need of some tlc!! Breakfast and dinner were both buffet. Bit repetitive but always managed to find something. Most of the staff were friendly. The cleaners always seemed to be working very hard keeping hotel nice and clean. Great location for getting on to beach, really enjoyed walking to old town via beach. Lot of competition for sun loungers start putting towels out at 7 am, not a problem for us as no interest in lying in the sun all day. All in all a very relaxing holiday.
On arrival staff were very busy so had to wait to check-in. A bit disappointed as I had to wait till 3:00pm to get into our rooms. Was staying in B Block which required some TLC. Room: On one day I had water dripping from upstairs in the bathroom, rusty pipework and ceiling in poor condition in the bathroom. The TV worked but there is only 1 channel that speaks English and that was the news channel. There are no Tea and Coffee facilities so make sure that you take water to the room. Restaurant: The food is great and plenty to choose from but be aware it is a free for all when you arrive and try to get a table...there is no structure when it comes to meal times. Hotel Staff: Some are friendly and helpful but some could not even put a smile on their face. Overall the weather was lovely and the Old Town is a great place to do some holiday shopping. I would also like to recommend that everyone visit ZOOMARINE..!!! My family had an excellent day there.
Very clean tidy hotel with amazing views over the ocean The staff work very long hours but are always jolly and pleased to help. The food is ok with good choices and plenty of it. All the alcohol is not watered down so be warned lol Great pool area and dining area with sea views. Block D is the best but A block was clean and tidy too and sea views. Rooms are cleaned every day All in all give it a try. Ps u must visit the old town with the free shuttle.
Lovely place but hotel is terrible.the noise mostly as I could hear everything from both neighbours rooms and nelly the elephant stomping above me til 2am and Scraping chairs . We wer in d103 which had table tennis outside and kids wer shouting and howling til 11pm Then crazy golf out the back so afternoon snooze was impossible right up til tea time they be out there shouting. Peopl coming back to their rooms up til 3am Quite a rowdy place . Very ignorant staff and guests. Pool was freezing . Food was great . Single beds with fluffy blanket. Shower was good . Snack bar was great .i didn't realise it was kids holidays which prob didn't help. Old town is nice . The strip was good .
The Hotel is situated on sea front location with a lovely beach. The staff are fantastic nothing is too much trouble for them and service is always with a smile. The food is good and a good choice each night. Entertainment is brilliant and caters for all ages. A visit to the old town is a must. The only down fall is the rooms could do with modernising. All in all my friend and I had a brilliant short break. 😊
My family and I have just returned from a week long stay here. On first impressions my heart sank, the hotel smelt of sewers. The rooms are very dated, looks like a step back in time to the 70's. No hairdryer in room. Poor air conditioning system. Old fashioned TV with 1 English Channel which only shows the news. The whole place just felt dirty. Ants and other insects in balcony area. Took my 2 granddaughters swimming in the indoor heated pool and was confronted by the sight of a young couple almost having sex in the pool!! We were all inclusive, there was a variety of foods with something to suit everyone. The all inclusive bar closes at 11pm, meaning you have to venture out to The Strip if you felt like having another drink. I got a coffee at the bar which was given to me in a horrible polystyrene cup whereas my 5 year old granddaughter was given 7up in a glass bottle with a glass??? I'd say the only good thing that this hotel has going for it is that it is on the doorstep of a beautiful beach. We found most of the staff to be rude and unfriendly. We also had maintenance men in/out our room doing odd jobs with no prior warning?? Would I return for a 2nd visit...NO!! Completely overpriced and not very enjoyable.
hotel very dated, could do with a refurbish. we stayed end of March to 2nd April. We had terrible storms and rain for the first three days. Were woken early the next couple of days by builders making repairs. Staff friendly. I don't think hairdryers should be hired for your complete stay. They should be hired for a couple of hours at a time .I asked every day and they never had one. Food and drink I thought was very good for 3 star. The Irish Bar in the old town is a must. There was not enough sun loungers so don't know what happens at peak times. Beds need changing not very comfortable.
Despite some quite bad reviews, this hotel is just fine. Yes, it needs some renovation but for the price you pay, it's hard to complain. Food was good, we found something to eat that was decent every night. Potentially a limited choice if you are a fussy eater. Proximity to the beach is excellent, just a 5 minute walk. Small beach to the east is nice for a quiet day. By walking along the Praia dos Alemaes to the west, you can access the old town in about 45 minutes (or catch the free hotel bus). Pools are great. There is a quieter 'holiday pool' around the back which we opted for most days. Cold water was very refreshing during the heat of the day. Staff were friendly and were happy to help. Room was a little dated but clean and comfortable with air con. One of the best things about this hotel is the short 10 minute walk to the strip. You can pre drink on the AI drinks and then head out at 11pm when the AI ends. Such fun nights out - especially Matt's bar with the rodeo bull!
