Review of Paraiso Albuufeira

Had a great holiday in Paraiso de Albufeira, although did not really spend much time in the hotel. Cleaning of the apartments was very good on the whole, although some attention to detail such as broken balcony locks, plug sockets is required by Housekeeping staff. Did not eat anything in the hotel, therefore cannot comment about the standard of food and beverages. Nice swimming pool area with great entertainment team. Again attention to detail required for maintenance issues!!

Better than had expected

I was nearly cancelling this hotel due to all the bad reviews i'd read of the last few weeks. Glad we didnt though as it turned out to be a very enjoyable holiday. Stayed here from 24th september to 2nd october. We went with our 4 year old daughter. I'll start with the good parts: Check in was easy and the receptionist had a smile when she greeted us. Rooms were spacious and decent size, though a brighter wall colour would of been nicer in the living room. Mattress was very comfy. Food was free for our daughter when we had breki and lunch. Had no issues with getting a sun bed and were lucky enough to find one sunbed that had a back you could adjust! Pool is a decent size but at the lower shallow end of the pool there isnt any steps/handrail to enter the pool,.this makes it difficult for young and old to get in and out of the pool. Food at the pool snack bar was lovely and very decent prices. Location is great and only €4 in a taxi to old or new town. Entertainment staff emily, Ellie, Lewis and Uri are 4 of the best thing about this hotel. It made the holiday for us! With lots of activities during the day and entertainment at night. The lads really do enjoy their job and kept us smiling and involved during our stay. Our little one loved all the activities and the mini disco. The entertainment staff are multitalented as they can dance, sing and present shows. We were in the bar every night that they were working. Not so good things: There are about 9 or 10 lifts and they all go to different floors and its very confusing. When you get out of the lifts theres no signage telling you where to find reception. Corridors are so dark and gloomy they are almost scary even when the lights come on. Curtains were are stained in the room and the inside of lightshades were cracked. Toilet door handle was broken. The pool area needs maintenance work carried out to it, the drain grills are missing in a few areas leaving an exposed area of a foot drop and someome will break their ankle if they fall down it. The pool area tho hosed down needs a sweeping brush to be used around it, there is moss growing and its slippy and an eyesore to see. The thatched roof in the snack and bar area have holes in them and need to be repaired. The paint is literally falling off the showers around the pool The kids playground needs up keeping and maintenace work done to it. We had a buffet lunch and it was horrible food, cost €17.50 per adult, the soup waS cold and so.was all.of the main course, i had one bite and couldnt eat anymore , it was a waste of €35, i should of stuck with baquette for €4.50 from snack bar. Would we return again? We would! It was great value for what we paid for it. Its no way near a 4star though.
