We have been to the Eden Resort a few times now and we stay in a 2 bed villa. It is clean, comfy and I could not find fault with it at all, its fantastic. During this visit we enjoyed some excellent sightseeing to the beautiful surrounding villages and the Caves. The staff are excellent, George in the restaurant is very nice, as are all the staff. Paula taught us a few phases to use during our time there. My friend Sandra and I always feel very welcome at the Eden and every year we talk about going somewhere else but the truth is we dont think there is anywhere else that would match the quality of the Eden or the friendly staff :) Margaret & Sandra.X

We have been to the Eden Resort on numerous occasions and have always had a superb holiday. The resort offers excellent well equipped accommodation with lovely friendly staff who have become good friends. We visit this resort at least twice a year and intend to continue to do s.

The two bedroom apartment was very spacious, the beds comfortable, a full sized fridge/freezer which was great. Good dining table and chairs. Outside patio with table, chairs & sun loungers The cleaning service was pretty good and we always had plenty of clean towels. New towels for bathing and pool were very welcome. Good changing facilities at the indoor pool and the pool was heated. Sauna and steam room. Free wifi through the wide-screen TV was good but if you saved a site on the smart TV, you would have to retune each day. It would be great if TV was a little bigger & had more Irish and English stations. Good modern cooker. Plenty of parking spaces which was great as we had a car. You can avail of the shuttel bus service again a nice touch. You are close to the old town in Albuferia. Now it would be a good enough walk but would be a few euros in a taxi. Cons- a dishwasher that took a few days to figure out as the writing had faded & no dishwasher tablets. No cloth to wash dishes or scruber. Called reception to ask if we should have a tee towel to be told no. The cleaner eventually provided one. Had to call 2 times to get a kettle as we had 3 in a two week holiday. The toaster burnt the toast so had to keep an eye on it. Some of the appliances were just cheap stuff. Had to get new lock on my bedroom patio door & a lock fixed in the back door. The maintained men or cleaners left the back doors open in the apartment 2 times during or stay, not impressed. thankfully, we used the free safe that is in the room. Nice touch. Hot water appears to be an issue, little pressure and lack off hot water at times. The showers in the apartment need to be modernised. If they could change them to the same showers you get in the indoor pool area that would be a welcome addition. The curtains wouldnt pull over in the room. The outside needs a painting as the paint had come off due to heavy rain the night before we arrived. No proper bar area as the bar was being revamped not before time apparently. It would have been nice to have been drawn to the bar but sadly this was lacking during our stay, nothing really to entice you to stay around. We managed to get most things addressed before we left so the next occupants should have less issues. In fairness, the staff would try to resolve things in a quick and timely fashion. Eden Resort is so close to be top class but it's these little & not so little things that is letting it down. All in all after taking everything into account, I would return. Aldi and Lidl not too far away and a huge shopping centre, Algarve Shopping about 6 KM away well worth a visit (US style shopping Mall) with everything in it.

Went here with 6 of my mates on stag party all inclusive. Can't find any faults with this place. Food was awesome and drinks were very good. 10 euro to new town for night life. Not buzzing this time of year but enough pubs and restaurants opened. Old town is very quite at night. I'd defiantly go back with my family. And recommend this place to anyone. We checked out at 11am and our pick up wasn't until 3.15pm so we were aloud to keep our all inclusive armbands until we left. All in all 9.8 out of 10.

Just returned from a short stay at the Eden resort and couldn't fault it. Staff all so welcoming and friendly especially on reception, and the pool assistant Armando was fabulous always there to help and going above and beyond around the hotel to make sure everything is in order and to chat when walking by. The food was gorgeous big variety to chose from, I am vegetarian and it catered perfectly for me. Free shuttle bus going into the town was amazingly helpful saves paying for a taxi. Rooms very spacious and have everything you could possibly need, bed also very comfy. Wifi available at most places throughout the hotel and in the rooms which is very helpful. Beautiful hotel will definitely be returning x

We stayed at the Eden Resort from 10th to 17th March, on a bed & breakfast basis. The buffet style breakfasts were really very good - with "proper" pork sausages (not the usual hot dog variety); bacon; hash browns; mushrooms; baked beans; half tomatoes; scrambled eggs (or you could ask for friend or poached eggs & these were freshly cooked for you). Then 3 types of ceral; fresh breads; croissants; toaster facilities; fresh fruit; yoghurts; meats & cheeses. Coffee & tea machines, and fruit juice machines also provided in the dining room area There is also an outdoor balcony area for taking in the sunshine whilst dining. At most resorts you usually just get a bedroom & bathroom when booked on a B&B basis, however at this resort we got an apartment - with a full sized & fully equipped kitchen including dishwasher; fridge freezer; cooker; microwave; toaster; ironing board & iron. Good sized bedroom. Good sized bathroom with shower over the bath. Large lounge area with L-shaped sofa with flat screen television, wi-fi, and a dining area too & this was just the one bedroom apartment. So we were very pleased. We were told that the resort was built as a time share originally but then as the time share market declined it was bought and is used as a hotel complex. Our 1st floor apartment had a balcony over looking the adults pool, and at the front door area there was a further couple of chairs and table too - ideal for catching the sun either at the morning (balcony over looking the pool) or evening (overlooking the front area). The resort is about a 20 minute walk to the town centre, or alternatively a 4 minute drive in the complex's shuttle bus, which ran at 10am, 12 noon, 2pm and 5pm - with the return journey being at the same time. Alternatively taxi's are only 4 euros each way. The complex is kept clean, with maid service 5 days out of 7. All the resort staff were very nice & pleasant & helpful. It was my birthday whilst I was there & on coming back to our apartment I found a card, bottle of wine, and fresh fruit with chocolate dip as a "birthday treat" from the resort. There is an indoor pool, which also has a sauna and steam room. In order to use the indoor pool you are required to purchase a swimming cap - which you can buy for 5 euros from the mini-market which is on the complex. There are also 3 outdoor pool areas, with a separate pool being for adults only. Ample sunbeds are also provided & you can get your pool towel from the resort too. Room tip - If you have children's push chairs you may be better asking for a ground floor apartment to save climbing the dozen stairs to the apartment. Look forward to returning to this complex.

Spent a week at the Eden Resort in March 2017 with my husband. Arrived late at night, smooth check in and were even given a packed meal as we had missed dinner - very welcome. Apartment 46 was huge. One bedroom, large kitchen, spacious lounge diner and balcony. Very modern just a little tired in bathroom and some of the furnishings but overall very impressive. Would have been nice to have loungers on balcony. Little out of the old town but a pleasant downhill walk if you so decide or free shuttle if not. Bit hilly on return but taxi cheap. Pool areas very nice and clean though one of the pools was emply during our visit. Didn't use indoor pool but heard it was cold. Food great. Not a huge choice but what was there was of good quality and plenty of it. Salads at lunchtime were lovely. Wine was good, as were cocktails but didn't go much on plastic glasses - but I understand the need for them. Drawbacks. The public lounge areas are dire. The Apple bar was being improved whilst we were there (we were told in advance) so we had to use the Kiosk bar early evening, then the restaurant later on. Both were brightly lit, high ceilinged and therefore very noisy and not at all comfortable areas to relax and enjoy a drink. Some guests allowed their children (we deliberatley went in term time...) to run wild and be generally very noisy. I hope the improvements to the Apple Bar solve this problem. Our daughter is visiting in May so I will be intrested to hear her comments. Overall a great holiday, mainly because we met another couple so could spend our evenings with them blocking out the non ambient surroundings.

We took a mid term holiday in the Eden hotel. We enjoyed ourself a lot. There was so much to do and facilities were new and great. The staff were lovely. Food was great needless to say we will go again

We just returned from our week long stay at Eden Resort with our three children. We arrived in the late evening and when I stepped into the lobby, I was really underwhelmed. The decor was very simple and the big light fixture was full of cobwebs. I was hoping our room would be an improvement. I was very pleasantly surprised. Pros: Our suite was very clean upon arrival. It was spacious with a large kitchen (with dishwasher/micro/kettle) and refrigerator/freezer combo, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an outdoor patio with two lounge chairs and a table + chairs where we were able to eat a few meals. The sofa bed was easy to open and close. There were blackout curtains in the living room and all bedrooms which were appreciated so we could sleep in longer during the bright mornings. The outdoor pools were beautiful and the landscaping is great. There were plenty of parking spaces for this time of year. The staff were friendly and answered all of our questions/requests. The resort is close to a number of restaurants and grocers if you do not have transportation, however, be ready for a very steep walk! The kids park and kids club is appreciated- it's a shame there isn't as many activities on this time of the year! The cleaning service was great! Cons: On holiday we take full advantage of a kitchen for self catering. We weren't impressed with the lack of cooking implements. We had to ask for a sharp knife. There were no small saucepans, only large ones so boiling anything took more time. There wasn't a vegetable peeler, cork screw or spatula. We had to walk up to the resort bar if we wanted a Portuguese bottle of wine opened. The dishwasher didn't have any of the writing for settings still on it so we had to guess what we were doing. The living space was nice but the tv was small and dangerously low with kids around. I was afraid my two year old was going to knock it over! The front door needed to be filed as it made a horribly loud noise every single time we opened it- I felt bad for our neighbors but there was nothing we could to remedy the situation! The back door to the patio was also really touchy and difficult to close. The indoor pool left a lot to be desired. The area was clean but the pool itself was small and cold. My kids were bored after 15 min in it, which was a shame because the outdoor pools were very cold in March. The resort is on a hill so it tends to be very breezy, which probably feels good in the summer but is very cool otherwise. Overall I was happy with our stay but I would recommend going another time of year when the outdoor pools will be warmer, there will be more activities for the kids and a more enjoyable time!

Having stayed at the Eden Resort previously. I had no hesitation in booking again this resort is suitable for family couples and solos , superb choice of accomadation from villas to apartments , beautiful gardens superb outdoor pools and a quality indoor pool. How ever you choose to stay the food is quality, superb choice to suit all tastes, the cleanliness of the resort is second to none and the staff at all levels from house to restaraunt offer great friendly service, free bus service to the town of Alburferia daily, can't recomend enough.
