    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*.

    ... from one rocky outcropping to the next along a blue crescent of ocean. Today the tide was out and the beach went far beyond its normal limits allowing us to walk farther and view the variegated cliffs and the green, algae-coated rocks normally covered with seawater. The cliffs are beautifully striped and form an interesting contrast of color to the blue water and the bright green rocks covered in algae. ...

    We've had a wonderfully lazy week, spending afternoons at the pool or the beach, and walking around Luz. Luz is basically a holiday village comprised of a dozen or more resorts and some villas all clustered around the Praia de Luz or the beach of Luz. The shopping here consists of everything holiday residents need: grocery stores, beauty shops, restaurants, bars, and a ...

    ... gave it another day at Lagos, hoping that the wind would vanish again, but ended up deciding that two nights was more than enough and that we'd prefer to move on again. Further east, it's supposed to be much less windy and a lot more pleasant.

    I have to confess that we're not altogether enamoured of the Algarve so far, although we haven't seen a lot of it yet. At this rate, however, we'll be hotfooting it straight to the Med as soon as we ...

During the evening we decided to do a food tour of Lagos, wanting to try both piri piri chicken and go back to this Aussie restaurant for nachos. Friday night we had gone for nachos at the same place and while Lori was away from the table I praised the quality of the food to the kiwi waiter, basically told him that "hey, my girlfriends dad is an amazing cook and she knows good food and she ...
