Timber tipis and clay clad walls

We have struck gold again! Like lucky prospectors we have stumbled upon a real gem and can't believe our good fortune. Olaf and Rosetta had posted a last minute request and, of the three in the area, who would take us at short notice, they were the first to respond. They have a 3 hectare property tucked 'invisibly' into the rolling hills and dry scrub just north of Monchique in inland Algarve. The land gently slopes down from a fresh water well and dammed swimming lake ...

Praia da Falesia and Faro

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon

We made it to Faro, our last stop on the southern shore of Algarve. Trying to avoid the concrete nightmare and crowds of Albufeira beaches, we drove slightly to the east to reach a 3km stretch of white sand called Praia da Falesia. Still pretty busy, but as people were spread out it wasn't so bad, and the water was the warmest so far (maybe ...

Lagoa & Albufeira

Quiet day today, as we had to find a place to watch the France - Germany game before 5. In hindsight I'm not so sure why we bothered, the game was largely soporiphic. The only comfort is that the Portuguese seemed to be rooting for us, thanks guys! But anyways the campsite is nice and family oriented, the swimming pool is big, and ...

Tourists of the south coast

A travel blog entry by vincent.michon

So that's where all the tourists went. To the south coast of Algarve. Mind you, I can understand them, the beaches are certainly pretty here in Lagos, and the historic town center does have a lot of character (and restaurants). It's just that the contrast with the empty campgrounds of west Alentejo and Vicentine coast is pretty extreme. The beaches here are already pretty packed, even tough the water is still seriously freezing. It didn't stop us this time ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Alto Da Colina Aparthotel Albufeira

    Great accommodation At the Alto

    from

    We spent 12 days at the Alto after being moved from the horrendous Natura Sun Club.

    2 great weeks

    from

    Just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at the Alto. The apartments are really impressive, in fact the best we have ever stayed in.

    Great hotel - lovely rooms

    from

    We have just returned from staying at the Alto Da Colina.

    Nice rooms - shame about the location.....

    from

    The room was excellent, spacious, clean and more than comfortable with fabulous views out to sea. Once in your room you felt like you were in a 4* hotel. Try and get a room on the ground/first floor as they have 2 lifts which are tiny and usually have to wait in a queue to get in one.

    Really enjoyed the Alto da Colina

    from

    We have just returned from 1 week at the Alto da Colina hotel, with 2 small children this is a great place for families, you don't need to leave the complex really. There is entertainment every night, kids clubs and a creche for babies from 12 months old, the creche can be booked up quick so I advise to get in there as soon as you arrive to get your sessions. There is also swimming lessons & football coaching for kids, the facillities are superb and very clean. You have a small shop on the site and they sell everything you need, the food at the hotel wasn't great I suggest you hire a car or grab a cab as there are so many nice restuarants in the town. There is a laundry service on the 4th floor you get tokens from reception to use the machines, and they have 2 computers so you can pay to use the internet. All in all we really enjoyed our stay, we had a corner sea view room which has 2 balconies and that was lovely, air conditioning was in the lounge and the bedroom. The only complaint was that they put up the drinks at the bar half way through our holiday, they said it was due to the high season.

    Alto da colina

    from

    I stayed at this hotel for 1 week,the room was excellent everything was to agood standard and was cleaned daily.there is lots for younger children to do and my daughter loved the kids clubs.The staff are helpful and speak english.It is in a quite area but bus stop is nearby and it is a ten min walk to a lovely beach.the evening entertainment is not great and tends to repeat but as this is a new hotel this may improve.There is a gym and sauna but children are not permited in these.There are 2 indoor pools and four outdoor pools 2 are for younger children.There is a kids splash area and a climbing area as well as a football club.I will be going back again

    One of our best holidays to date!

    from

    Back on 1st May 2005 we were the first coach load of tourists to arrive at this brand new hotel.

    Loved the Alto da Colina

    from

    The Alto da Colina is perfectly located away from the busy town centre of Albufeira. The apartment was spacious and very clean. It was well equipped with coffee filter machine and microwave. The pool area was exceptional with a very spacious pool. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was busy with small children and there seemed to be plenty for them to do. They are still finishing building work on a play area but this did not effect our stay at all. I would highly recommend these apartments.

    Great Holiday in Portugal

    from

    We recently returned from a month's stay at the Alto da Colina Aparthotel in Albufeira. This property is recently new and everything is modern to their standards, right down to having heat and air conditioning in each unit. The kitchen area is quite colourful and well equipped with even a glass-topped stove and a microwave oven, but no oven on stove. They also do not have a laundry service on the premises yet. The hotel, at the time of our stay (month of March) was not busy, so we had the hot tub to ourselves, but the indoor pool was quite cool. The outdoor pool was never used as it was too cold also, but nice to lounge around on sunny days. There is a recreation complex being built at the rear of this hotel, but it did not interfere with our stay. The front desk personel were very helpful with any of our requests for information, etc. Having a car is certainly an asset as it is a fair walk to shopping and restaurants from the hotel, but a bus stop is down on the main street from the hotel. There are so many fine restaurants, it would be hard to choose which was the best. We did find he local library where they let you use the computer on internet for one half hour, free of charge, daily. Great for keeping in touch with family at home. We would certainly recommend this aparthotel as a vacation spot in the Algarve.

    Great time at Alto da Colina!

    from

    We stayed at Alto da Colina from March 1, 2005 to March 8, 2005 and enjoyed it very much. This is a brand new aparthotel in the Balaia/ St. Eulalia area of Albufeira. Since this aparthotel is only 9 to 10 months old everything is brand new and in excellent working condition. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. The staff are very helpful and bend over backwards to make sure your stay is very enjoyable. There is a supermarket and restaurant about 5 - 10 minutes away by foot at Alfagar (Alto da Colina's sister resort). Overall, this resort was excellent and we would definately go back and stay here!.
