Great family accommodation
michelle winn, United Kingdom
Accommodation was great for family's, all the necessary amenities were there , all except for air conditioning, this is the only thing which I felt the accommodation was missing
The best thing about my stay was...a choice of pools which was ideal for the children and pretty close to the centre of albuferia

Great value for money
Sharon, Kings Lynn
We had a really spacious apartment with great views. The bathroom had a great showers and the towels were changed all but one day. Cleaners came in just about everyday and made the beds,hoovered and mopped the floors and emptied bins. The lichen was small but well- equipped. The outdoor pools were fantastic and ice cream prices from the the poolside bar weren't exorbitant . People tend to book sun beds from early, which we resorted to doing as we couldn't find any available on a first day which is when you need a sunshade the most. The only downside was the noise late at night when youngsters came home from partying .Good supermarkets within walking distance if you don't mind hills. Overall a wonderful stay.
The best thing about my stay was...The spacious apartment ,balconies and outdoor pools.

Good amenities, quiet area, large apartment.
Lorraine , Belfast
Great family sized apartment. Basic but what I would expect for the money. Very clean. Staff were very friendly. There was a main pool with cafe and on another level both kids and large pool with pool bar. Indoor pool with health suite plus games room. Wifi at the pool was great. Plus a supermarket which is expensive. In a quiet area but 6e in taxi to old town which is very good. On a hill but didn't think this was an issue since travelling by taxi.
The best thing about my stay was...Amenities and location isn't an issue.

Real value for money for the not-so-picky!
moonshdw30, Exeter UK
Stayed for 11 nights in early September 2013. Really big studio apartment, clean and tidy and spacious. Beds and sofas really comfy, even when pushed 2 twins together to make a double. Kitchen was big but slightly worse for wear- cupboard door loose, fridge a bit noisy and toaster a bit temperamental but cooker was great. Limited and basic kitchen equipment but everything we needed to successfully self cater with proper meals. Tin opener remained a mystery though :-). Reception staff really helpful (spoke good English and happy to help me with my Portuguese!) and apartment cleaned regularly by friendly staff. Couldn't check in until 3pm which was not on any of the documentation but could use secure luggage room until room was ready. Nice balcony and 2 pools. Is a 20 min walk to town and 30 to choice of beaches and old town, uphill on way back which suited us fine and made it pretty quiet and away from the bustle and bars in town. Bars and shop at complex expensive and felt charge to use safe was too steep. Is a bit echoey which was not so great when had noisy stag party playing up in early morning. But all in had a great time and would heartily recommend to anyone who doesn't mind things not being 'just so' and can take a bit of wear and tear in their stride. If you need everything to be perfect, probably not for you :-)
The best thing about my stay was...Size and cleanliness of the apartment and friendliness of staff.

Cheap and Cheerful :)
Arrived at 1AM the man on reception was really helpful. Was 2 of us staying self catering and the apartment was really big - large front room/kitchen and bedroom and standard bathroom with a shower. The kitchen had a cooker microwave but didn't have a kettle which didn't bother us as we don't drink brews. The rooms are basic and not modern but it doesn't bother us as were not there to look at the decor just a place to eat and sleep. It was clean though and that is what matters. It did state we would have towels changed twice and bedding once within the week - the maids only come once and then they only changed the bins and left us no clean towels. That is my only negative of the room. It has two pools with lots of sun loungers and the area is clean and tidy. You do have to loan sun bed mattresses at €1 a day. The supermarket on site I thought was a bit pricey but they always are. There isn't much around the apartments but is a bus stop right outside where you can get it to the beach, the old and new towns and the strip for €1.40. We walked to the strip which was only 5 mins - we never walked to the beach or Old Town but it only took about 10 minutes on the bus and cost €4.80 home in a taxi. In my opinion the Old Town was the better place to be something for everyone with Restaurants, Rock Bars, Live Music and Clubs open til 4am. Great holiday Great No frills Hotel

had a great time enjoyed staying at the hotel.
michael oram, West Bridgford Nottingham
i found Janelas do mar very clean the rooms were as you would expect on a self catering holiday everthing you needed rooms were large. only downside was the walk to the beach & the old town but if you like the pool you had plenty of room to lie around both pools on a hole i would visit it again staff were friendly.

Nice Hotel - located on hill 20 mins walk from beach or taxi for 3.90 to Old Town or Hotel Shuttle Bus.
Joseph Michael Murphy, Dublin15
Midway between Strip and Old Town. Well located away from noise of Strip but close enough to walk. Went with Continental Breakfast included - good value, extra 2euro for Full English. Excellent staff in Coffee Shop/Breakfast room and good value for snacks. Lower Pool area/Bar -good. Large Living and Bedroom 4 adults, no problem. Entertainment not great in bar, which was usually empty. Too much ear-splitting Karaoke. Safe rental is expensive at 25euro for two weeks and TV rental returnable deposit of 20.00 euro required. Football/Tennis/Basketball pitch is expensive at 10.00 euro per hour. Gym 4euro per hour. " Pink House" local Bar at bottom of hill,across road is very good value, large good quality beer and large wine is 3euro. Nice to stop off on an early night. Seek out Bar/Restaurant which locals use.
The best thing about my stay was...Relaxing and good service.

5 nights in the Janelas Do Mar was ample time as the weather was not so good,
Helen Cullen, Dublin
We arrived at 11.30pm on the 17th April for a 5 night stay at the hotel tired and hungry and discovered that we could not get anything to eat or a drop of milk for a cup of tea as the shop closed at 7.00pm, we asked at reception for some to make a cup of tea but the night porter could not help.The rest of the reception staff were very nice during the day . The hotel was a distance from the strip ,we were in building 2 and the lift got broken the 2 nights before we were due to leave, there was nine floors in the building but thankfully we did not have children with us, but we had to haul our luggage down the stairs for a 4.ooam pick up to get us back to the airport. The weather was not any good so we did a lot of sightseeing on the local bus every day. The pool was not used so we could not judge it, overall you pay for what you get and this holiday turned out to be cheap enough,
The best thing about my stay was...Bus stop across the road brought us to lots of different places for €1.40.

John Burgess, Grimsby
hotel is set out over 3 buildings very dated and a bit shabby really,would not stay here again but it wasnt exactly a roach motel,it served its purpose if im honest although it really is bit of a dump,i can only comment on the room i was put in (overlooking the main pool,5th floor) and that was in a poor condition
The best thing about my stay was...the weather
