Historical Traveler Reviews Tropical Sol Apartments Albufeira
Wonderful Hotel !!!
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
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
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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
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*.

After our 2 day sail we pull into Portamao and decide to drop anchor rather than go into the marina as it was a lovely big bay by the beach and a lovely afternoon. Just what we needed after 2 long days at sea. The sunset was beautiful and a cosy night in board before getting up at 3 to head onto Sines on the west coast of ...
... ie, ordered traffic. No crazy Tuk Tuks or motorbikes weaving along the road, overtaking in all the wrong places. Cars even stop for you to cross the road on zebra crossings! Very different from Asia. We stayed in a little cottage about a 5 minute walk from the historic town centre. The remnants of the city wall are still intact in places. Lagos is a very pretty town with narrow cobbled streets and small, whitewashed ...
A quiet day at our town today... Wandered to the town/village at the sea front and had a wander and coffee. Big purchase... A new pair of jandals. Havianas and cheaper than in NZ so grabbed a pair.... Don't suppose I will have much call for them for few months. Bill enjoyed a very extensive port shop ... Very big for size of town... Two floors. Beach not so calm today... Wind from Spain apparently.... Said with derision and blame !!!! Like it's their fault!!!! Still blue ...
Setting off from Estoril following our GPS ( Australian man's voice) we then went over Lisbons suspension bridge heading to the Algarve. As we headed south there were lots barren dry lands....bit like Australia actually. Almost expected the odd Kangaroo to appear. Very little grown it was so dry ... Then we went further and lots olive orchards, orange trees,and some animal farms. A very quick trip along the motorway .... Great roads and easy to get somewhere fast. Listening ...
... and a shower, we leave. We aim to go to Vigo down the N550, but as we drive over the mean speed bumps in Portovedra, there is a huge clatter and I see in the rear-view mirror that the bike rack and bikes have fallen off and landed in the road behind us! Jonny leaps out as I put on the hazards and by the time I join him to move the bike rack onto the pavement, the man who was in the car behind us has jumped out and is already offering his assistance.
Thankfully there ...
