Leggo Lagos!

... love hanging out with friends. I love the beach. There is something about the beach that is enchanting to me. I could lay there for hours (with sunscreen of course) taking in the sound of the waves, the smell of the seasalt air, the feeling of sand between my fingers and toes, the peacefulness of the ocean, the heat of the sun. It is so incredibly relaxing. This is my piece of paradise.
After a short beach excursion, we headed off ...

... We move on and stop at a ceramic shop and talk with a nice girl who's English is strong and learn about the place and it's link to 'Porches Pottery' one of the most famous pottery studios in all of Portugal. We buy a couple little things and head on down the street to the Museum. At least now we're indoors. The museum is filled with artifacts from places we've been. Not just Silves but also Castro Marim and Mertola.
We take or leave of Silves ...

... odd rope barrier here and there. We spy some bits of mosaic left on a few walls, but nothing like the pictures of fish etc. on the web or brochures. We continue to a newer looking building, about 200 yrs. old which has been maintained and see it's part of the exhibition.
In Europe, so many civilizations have been built on top of previous ones that they've had a 'different' philosophy in the recent past. Abandoned castles, palaces, ...

Another Kick At The Can

... Many Pousada's have struck deals with the government to turn more or less public historic buildings into private inns by maintaining public access to the buildings. So, they don't make it easy to find or access, that way their guests have it to themselves (at least that's MY theory). We DO get in and are allowed through the loby to the garden which is impressive. We then leave by the front of the garden and find that entrance is right ...

Portugal New Years

... even try to sell Bryce drugs – Bryce is a dodgy looking guy after all. We then ventured up to a view point overlooking the city, outstanding artwork was to be found all over the pretty city – graffiti mainly but it was beautifully done rather than scribbled tags. After that we headed to a park for a lie down and some more nice views. As we couldn’t get enough of these nice views we headed up again to a castle which was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Stella Maris Hotel Apartments Albufeira

    Fantasic Hotel

    from

    If you are looking for a relaxing holiday the Stella Maris is the place for you! The hotel deserves its four star rating as it is beautiful. The hotel was spotlessly clean & the staff very friendly. On arrival we could not believe the size of our room & balcony they were huge!

    Ausgezeichnetes Hotel

    from

    Wir buchten sehr spät über first choice.co.uk und kamen im Stella Maris unter. Dieses Hotel ist das beste, in dem ich jemals war.

    Unsere Unterkunft wurde uns erst bei Anreise offenbart, und wir waren so froh, dass wir hier gelandet sind.

    Das Zimmer, das Personal, die Bar, der Pool und die lokalen Zusatzleistungen waren super.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    we booked a late deal on first choice.co.uk and ended up at the stella maris. this is the best hotel i've stayed in.

    we had allocation on arrival and were so glad to be placed here.

    the room, staff, bar, pool and local ammenities were great.

    Really lovely 2-bed apartment and fantastic staff

    from

    We booked this as a last-minute replacement to a rejected reservation elsewhere, and I'm really glad we were bumped from the first one!

    Lovely apartments

    from

    Booked a short break (four days) in Portugal just to remind myself what the sun felt like. Chose Stella Martis Aparthotel due to pictures seen on the internet. I was not disappointed at all. The hotel is spotless. The cleanliness is fantastic. Cleaners came in every day and left the room looking fresh. Balcony lovely. Booked on a bed and breakfast basis. Breakfast was nice but it got a little boring having same everyday and it helped me realise that I am not an All Inclusive type of person. Staff are helpful when required but otherwise unobtrusive. About 800 metres from the beach and on the way you pass a little bar called Neptuno which does the most fantastic grilled chicken salad going. Local beer is 1 euro and beers like Heineken/Carlsbert 2.50 euros. Not an expensive night out. Went into Albufeira which is very touristy and saw the Old Town. Good bar called Bank which has live music at times and another bar/eatery called Buddies. I would recommend this hotel and area to anyway.

    A pleasant surprise

    from

    We had originally booked a 7 day stay at the Balaia Atlantico through Hotelopia but they overbooked (I assume) and sent us over to the Stella Maris for the first 2 nights of our stay. This was a bit of a bother as we were travellng with a 2-year-old and wanted to minimise packing/unpacking. Still, the Stella was lovely, nicely furnished and nicely landscaped. We didn't try the pool and only used the restaurant once for breakfast.

    Worth visting

    from

    We have just stayed in a studio for a week and found the place very clean, linen and towels changed frequently without asking.

    Well equipped and great value for money

    Several restaurants within easy walking distance and well stocked supermarkets should you want to cook and eat in

    For breakfast we usually had fresh coffee and marvellous patisseries from the cafe 200m up the road

    Recommend the Stella Maris

    from

    We have just come back from a week's stay at the Stella Maris, which was very enjoyable and relaxing. Having read the only review before going and reading it again after returning, I find it a little harsh. Perhaps their experience was because it was newly opened, but we found it a different place.

    Good choice

    from

    a very good choice, great value for money.

    close to a fabulous beach,

    access to nightife and more varied restaurants requires a short taxi journey.

    Wouldn't recommend

    from

    We booked our flights from Bournemouth to Faro on thomsonfly[--], and the Alpinus 4* self-catering apartments, Albufeira through alpharooms[--], and a transfer from Faro to Albufeira on low-cost-transfer[--].
