Not really a five star hotel anymore

Pros: Beautiful view from sea view rooms, pleasant walk to the most beautiful beach. Heated swimming pool for children. Child friendly hotel.
Cons: Plastic mugs that looked like glasses in our room. Tired and dirty, furniture, carpets and curtains. Old bathroom with no ventilation. Expensive SPA
Location: Very good location, close to new town and supermarkets, few minutes walk to Martina a local restaurants with good sea food and grill.
We visited Albufeira in October and stayed in this hotel for six nights. The smaller swimming pool was heated to ca. 24C so it was crowded with children. The breakfast was nice and staff were very friendly and you had lot of choices if you were on diet or preferred to have healthy diet. We did not use the SPA as the price was very expensive. The sea view form our room was just unbelievable and beautiful and had a good size balcony. However the rooms needed to be refurbished and indeed should have been refurbished long time ago. The carpets and curtains were so dirty and tired so you didn't want to touch them. The bathroom was cleaned but needed to be refurbished as well. The were no walking in shower and we had to stand in an old tired bathtub to shower. We did not have any ventilation in our bathroom and when we complained we were told that the ventilation would be working few hours per day only and would be switched on by the hotel? We have never seen that it would work. The rooms did not offer any tea or coffee facilities and all you could find were four glass look like plastic mugs (Two in the bathroom and two in the bedroom). On our last day the hotel hosted the world kick boxing championship so the lobby and surrounding area were crowded with lot of young people and parents running up and down. In conclusion with the current poor condition of it's hotel rooms, the hotel should not been rates as a five star hotel.

No Swiming pool unless you pay 20 euros

“No Swiming pool unless you pay 20 euros” Ok so we are here out of season but no excuses for not providing a useable swimming pool. There are many pools around the resort and each one is provided with a water quality information board. However the temperature stated on each of these boards in no way reflects the actual temperature of th water for example one pool says 23.5 degrees Celsius and I can't even put a foot in it. The actual temperature is about 5 degrees celcius so they have obviously turned the pool heating off. So this now leaves one option and that is the indoor pool but not for anyone under 16 and you have to pay 20 euros each to use it because it's part of the thalassotherapy spa. So don't think you are getting anything spa included in your booking because you aren't. The hotel decided to host a commercial team building event for a whole day where the entire grounds were overrun by ignorant annoying loud groups all searching for hidden clues. We couldn't get peace anywhere and everywhere we went they were in our face physically climbing above dinner tables to reach envelopes hidden on the pergola at the beach bar. Again I'm aware it was out of season but everything that wasn't essential to keep the hotel open was Closed. On the plus side it was a clean comfortable room and staff are very pleasant but when booking I had no inclination that our apartment was away from the main hotel in a separate block. But good WiFi. Room Tip: Get a sea view room if you want a to be in the main hotel

Lovely hotel, shame about the restaurant

Having stayed here previously we were really looking forward to our trip this time. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, with a beautiful view of the beach and it is a very comfortable place to be, we really felt at home. The restaurant was a real disappointment. Previously they had a nightly buffet, containing a variety of Portugeuse dishes, which we really enjoyed. As it was their quiet period they had closed this and diners ate in the restaurant from a menu of 'international' food, which did not change over the week and was not of the standard we would have expected, local dishes would have been very well received by the majority of diners I suspect. I do not like complaining but we did regret going half board and if we had hired a car we would have eaten elsewhere. I understand that it is impractical to have a buffet for just a few diners but feel that this should have been made clear at the time of booking, as we had not been in January before. That said, we shall be returning to the hotel again as we both rate it very highly - I shall just double check the buffet is in service!

Couples paradise

Starting with the arrival, the hotel is very grande and beautiful from the outside. The inside however is even better with our room looking out onto the sea which was stunning. Staff were very friendly and helpful and even upgraded our room for free. The breakfast restaurant had a lot of choices and the Santa Eulalia restaurant looked over the sea and has a wide range of fresh fish and meats. Pools outside were heated and games room/spa were offered. Beautiful hotel and perfectly located as it is right next to your own private beach!!

Not a 5 star hotel

Stayed the last night of our holiday in the Grande Real Santa Eulalia Resort and spa. It was somewhat disappointing coming from the brilliant Epic Sana to this out of date hotel.
