      Historical Traveler Reviews Tropical Sol Apartments Albufeira

      Wonderful Hotel !!!

      from

      We enjoyed our holidays (again) in Trop. Sol in Aug. 03. It was our 3rd visit. Delighted to hear that you have aircond. in bedrooms now. The apts. are lovely and spacious and the cleaning staff are very good at their job and friendly. The staff are nice especially the bar staff (the young man (sorry I forget you name) especially). Also the food at the poolside restuarant is very good, clean and run by very nice people.

      We hope to go back this year maybe for 1 week only the 2 of us!!! I remember when the whole family (3 children) came with us and they too enjoyed it. They are adults now and still talk about The Tropical Sol. Slán go foill!!! Mairead and Gearoid O Ceannabháin.

      Excellent for families with small children

      from

      Myself and my wife stayed in the Tropical Sol with our 3 year old son last year. It was absolutely beautiful. Staff were friendly accomadation top class rooms cleaned every day and cleaned well.

      Location is excellend also. The bar located withing the complex is well suited to families with small children. My only really small complaint is the pool is not heated and could be quite chilly. All in all we enjoyed our stay and are returning this September. I must recommend the bakery just around the corner. Beautiful!!!!

      The tropical sol are above average apartments

      from

      Good location, close, but not too close to the main strip. The beach is a good walk (20 mins away) and I wouldn't recommend it for kids or the elderly. Our apartment was spacious but severely dated and not very clean, however, we went in another apartment and it was modern and spotless!

      All in all pretty average.

      Excellent location

      from

      We have just returned home from the algarve and we stayed at the Tropical sol apartments with Eclipse and we were very pleased with the cleanliness of the complex the rooms were spacious and the location was fantastic near to all the facilities and the great beaches Very good hoilday and would return again soon.

      Highly Commendable but Points To note!

      from

      I have just returned (14/08/03) from the Tropical Sol Apartments and would agree that the accommodation is spacious and well equipped and that the facilities are adequate.However, 2 things to be aware of. Firstly, there is no air conditioning in the bedrooms and they can become very stuffy. Secondly, the noise at night which seems to be continuous. There is a strip club opposite the entrance which seems to spew forth a very 'vocal' clientele at about 4a.m. There also seems to be an abundance of street sweeping machines and early morning delivery vehicles.However, if you're a heavy sleeper this is the place for you and your children.

      Very High Standard

      from

      Have just got back from a week's stay at these apartments and found them extremely well run. The entire place is kept clean and tidy all the time.The rooms were well decorated and furnishings were better than most. Well equipped with hot plates, microwave, fridge and (surprisingly) TV with 15 stations of all languages. The staff were polite and helpful.Albufeira is a fairly lively place but not too boisterous. Many families and age groups were there and during the evening there is something for everyone. Some excellent restaurants - Portuguese cooking is recommended. WARNING: Some of the 'trendy' bars charge serious high prices for drinks. If you like UK Garage, R&B, Urban etc. (or even if you don't), try Matt's Bar on the road towards the beach at the top end of 'The Strip'. You can pay double his prices elsewhere. It may appear to be a 'youngster's' bar, but don't let that put you off if you think you're too old for the place - they won't bite!Enjoy....Rick, Dorset

      Best place

      from

      I've been there for a last 6 years! Its clean, air conditioned, with friendly staff and quality amenities! Its quite a walk from the sea but with such a good pool and surroundings is not a problem and is within a short walk to bars/clubs/shops.

      Excellent holiday

      from

      We have just returned from our holiday, myself and my daughter and friend.It was the first time we travelled to Portugal and had no idea on the location/accomodation we would be staying in until we arrived.We were extremelly impressed with the accomodation and location. It was very clean and well equipped for our SC hol.The staff at the poolside Bar where extremelly hospitable and the quailty of the food was good.I hope to return at a later date with my family and would have no hesitation in returning to the Tropical SolMany thanks to all the staff who made our holiday a fun, comfortable and enjoyable holiday

      Needs new furniture and brightening up

      from

      After reading the excellent reviews on the internet I was disappointed with our one-bed apartment, room 014. It was a very good size but was very dated and gloomy inside. It is a shame as the complex is very well run will a lovely large swimming pool. We visited the Club Oceano which had much smaller rooms, but beautifully fitted with brigh, clean furniture (room 308). It makes clear the star system doen't guarentee quality as Tropical Sol is 4* and Club Oceano is 3*.

      ... to work hard at not succumbing too often. Coffee is about a euro or two depending on where you have it and there are loads of untouristy coffee shops and restaurants which is just a door in a wall, no advertising, complete with tiles on the walls and rickety chairs and a cat asleep on a table.There are loads of free roaming dogs. Some are typical medium height, long legged, brown mongrels. Others might walk past you on ...

      Hello again, After I published the first blog of today I noticed my heading was wrong. Sometimes the computer changes a word to what it thinks I meant and I neglected to proof read my entry. So the title has been changed to what it should have been in the first place! So only a couple of photos taken a couple of weeks ago and I just never included them before. So again, Happy New Year, Adventure ...

      Feliz Another Novo!!!

      ... Portugal! Not a very good history lesson.
      Tomorrow I take the bus to Seville. It is about a 4 hour ride in a giant bus, the long distance buses are huge. The cost again is inexpensive...about $16.
      Seville should be packed with places to explore and things to see. I have booked a room for a week, but may stay longer before I head down to Cadiz on the coast...to be seen!
      Enjoy the few photos. Happy New Year, Adventure ...

      Today is flea market day in Momte Gordo, but not a great turn out. I saw a few things I liked, but couldn't carry them with me in my small pack. The town is the Portugese Fort Lauderdale. The most interesting thing was seeing the fisherman on the beach. ...

      Merry Christmas everyone! Just one photo today, but a nice one I think. I made several origami cranes and gave them to the shop owners of the stores I frequent. Then I made some extras and put them in my pocket and walked around the village. I came across these two women sitting in ...
