    Historical Traveler Reviews Luna Forte da Oura Albufeira

    Loved Forte Da Oura

    from

    Just back from a week staying at the Forte Da Oura. Had a wonderful time, hotel was very nice only downside was that the beds were a bit uncomfortable. Very handy for The Strip and a visit to the Old Town is worth while. Also visited Zoomarine which was really good and went on a Jeep Safari and Cruise. The cruise in the afternoon was a bit long but the Safari was excellent. A great place to eat out was The Sizzling Stone whcih has the best steaks ever! Geordie Pride has good roasts on a Wednesday and Sunday. The snack bar at the hotel was basic but good. We found that you had to be up pretty early to get your towels on the sunbeds but it was a great holiday and we have booked to go back next year!

    Brilliant

    I stopped at the forte da oura from the 15th of june till the 29th!! brilliant there is building work out back but i was lucky enough have a pool view but to be honest ya not on ya balcony that much.The rooms are lovely very very clean loadsa space i was very impressed.The lobby is where the bar is so if ya fussy bout noise you will hear some till the bar closes if there has been an act on! but i was told this buy other guests never heard any thing myself.the bar and restaurant is run by a lovely couple and they really make it feel like a local santos and paulo behind the bar are lovely and paulo's wife works in the restaurant. the hotel is 5 mins walk to the beach and 5 mins walk to the nightlife on the strip or ya can go out round the corner 2 secs away. the pool is lovely it is smaller than next door but it is apt it has a playground for children to.try mary annes on the new strip for food good english meals and if 2 paying adults kids eat free. also asian dreams at the top of the strip does a good all you can eat chinese buffet theres so many places i could recommend but more fun if ya explore....i will definetley stop at the forte da oura again

    Just returned not a bad hotel but make sure your at the front there is building work at the rear of the hotel not to mention the cockrill at six in the morning.We managed to get moved after complaining to the front of the hotel.The bar staff are very friendly but the lady on reception could do with a lesson in manners,pool was ok but use the one next door its bigger and better.

    Building work

    from

    Be aware a large building site is under construction to the rear of these appts. If you get a front location o.k but the rear is ugly and noisy and dusty

    Great place nice and relaxing

    from

    we have just got back and what a nice hotel, the staff are friendly the hotel is kept spotl;essly clean and the miads really do give the rooms a good clean everyday they hoover and mop and change the towels everyday, the bar, restaurant and pool bar pool staff are the same 5 people and they are very friendly and helpful, the only downside to our stay here was the mytravel rep she was useless, luckily thou the reception staff were a great help, but be warned the pools are really cold untill the end of the day when the sun has been on them all day as there is virtually no shaded area around the pool.

    Watch out for the turtles who live in the lobbys waterfall pool

    Excellent

    from

    Just returned from a week spent in the Forte da Oura and very impressed - the accommodation was excellent and although it was a studio apartment there was a separate bedroom. The kitchen was well equiped, rooms nice and clean as was the poolside spotless. We had lunch a couple of days in the Forte da Oura and the food was tasty and cheap. The only problem with the apartments was trying to get into the room even by the end of the week we were still confused by the lock!

    The location is ideal for those looking for a lively holiday as the Forte da Oura is only a 10 minute walk from the Strip where there are some great pubs - our favourite was La Bamba!

    Can't wait to return!

    Good but ...

    from

    The hotel was nice and clean, great location, close to the beach and the strip. Rooms were very large and well furnished. Facilities were very modest though. The only problem was in the way the building is designed - it has a large open space in the middle going from the lobby all the way up to the roof, so the sound from nightly entertainment was going all the way to our room and it was LOUD. Felt like party is going right by our door (until 2 am). Don't recommend to people with small children or anybody who likes to go to bed early.

    Beaches, Sangria and Seafood

    A travel blog entry by mdesoto on Sep 11, 2014

    Portugal is rapidly becoming our favorite place in the world. Why, you ask? Three reasons: interesting and beautiful beaches, pitchers of sangria and flavorful, fresh seafood. Here in Praia de Luz we have found all three within easy access. We're enjoying the variety and changing flavors of Portugal, especially this Algarve region.

    This morning we went for a walk on the Praia de Luz beach. Normally the ...

    ... shops selling hardware, souvenirs or jewelry. We've enjoyed exploring the village but it was time to venture a little farther afield--about 10 miles, actually. We hopped on the bus and rode to Lagos, the closest town and visited their old town area and walked along the marina. This is where most of the area's boating excursions leave. You can take a boat trip to see ...

    ... We're on the second floor with a huge balcony that overlooks an Italian style garden with fountain and lots of cypress trees and other Mediterranean foliage. The whole complex is in the Italian style with soft gold, stuccoed buildings. There are two pools, one adult, one child, and a nice restaurant in the complex. We're very happy with it. One of the best things is that maids come twice ...

    ... 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 ...

So last night when we went back, Lori was unaware that this conversation had occurred between myself and the waiter but he came and sat down beside us, winked at me and then asked "so you're back again tonight huh?" To which Lori replied "yes, the food was just so good we had to come for more!" He replied to her with "I can tell you know good food, is your dad an amazing chef?" At this point im giggling ...
