the location was perfect for the busy strip and the quiet old town
there was not nearly enough sun beds
The location is excellent. It seems family orientated and small which suited us. Facilities are basic but everything we needed for self catering was there. Staff where friendly when approached but not great with directions/help for first timers in the area but its easy enough to find your way around. Use the tourist train to get your bearings. Old Towm is lovely and relaxed (The Bank restaurant in the square is excellent). Avoid the Strip - tack tack tack! Hotel is right beside supermarket and 10 min walk to the beach.
Our room faced out front which meant the traffic noise was a bit much and we didnt get any use out of our balcony because of this, however they did say we may be able to change rooms after a few days but we didnt bother in the end. You have to be up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed! Sunbeds had towels on them from 8am (i didnt check earlier) and stayed that way until well into late morning which is v unfair as its a small hotel with limited sunbeds.
Travelled with my husband and 3 children under 6. Family friendly hotel. Pool area very safe as had childrens pool & a slightly deeper area for my 6 year old but safe enough for him to stand in it. Apartments were spacious and had all necessary utensils. They were also cleaned every day and had daily towel changes. Food & drink very cheap. Kids meals 3 euros & adults 5-6 euros. Bottles of Budweiser only 2 Euro, pints 2.50. Barwoman very helpful and pleasant. Had games room for the kids but more suitable for older children Supermarket & shopping complex right next door which was a bonus. McDonalds, KFC across the road. Half way between old town & strip. Will be back next year. Loved it.
Only small complaint. Could do with a sweeping brush in apartment as kids get very messy. Had to leave it for cleaners to clean and with having a crawling baby she was eating all the stuff off the floor! Also no night entertainment but you can walk to the paraiso hotel a few minutes walk right of the hotel and they have a entertainment for the kids at night. Room 006 could do with a new remote for the telly as we were not able to turn it down. Beds in main room hard & uncomfortable but sofa beds more cosy. Overall its a great place to stay and i'd go back next year.
We stayed in one of the 1 bedroom apartments with our 2 children ,aged 15 and 13. The apartment was very spacious and clean ,with a large balcony overlooking the pool. The airconditioning in the apartment was also excellent.The location of the Paladim is excellent , half way between the strip and the old town.( under 10 mins walk to either)We spent most of our time in the old town which has lots of good restaurants, bars, and shops..We also went to the beach at the old town. The main supermarket is 1 min walk from the Paladim,and there is a Macdonalds and Kentucky just across the road.(handy for snacks for the kids.)The Taxi rank is also one minute away. We would definitely stay here again.
This is my second visit to this hotel and I didn't hesitate to re-book. Aparthotel Paladim is modern, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is ideally situated halfway between the Old Town and The Strip - around a 15 minute walk. The bar snacks are good and reasonably priced. The pool is a decent size and set in well kept gardens.
Some evening entertainment would have been nice on a couple of nights a week. The only entertainment in the hotel was karaoke and this is only on a Friday.
Paladim is ideally located between the old and new town in Albufeira which makes it very convenient to walk to the beach, restaurants, shops etc. It dosen't deserve a 4 star rating as the facilities are limited.However, we did enjoy our holiday and would probably return as the staff were helpful, the location of the apartment was good, and apartments were clean.
As we had a 14 and an 11 year old I would have liked more entertainment for both day and night.
Accommodation was quite basic, but very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool, snack bar etc. Location was excellent. Would return to stay here again.
Location was great. Apartment was hugh and a large balcony, had all the facilities I needed. The receptionist Helen could not do enough to help with anything I asked. Very comfortable. As it was an apartment it was so handy to have the shopping center right next door and a central location for tour departures.
The seagull problem - the hotel pool was constantly overrun with seagulls to the point that you could not use it.
Everything was remodeled. Very clean. Good location.
I didn't like the fact there was no cutlary in the room. One would think that with a kitchenette comes plates/knives/forks/spoons. Also the shower did not work in room 203 which was very dissapointing.
The food at the pool bar was not particularly good
Basic apartments with good access to old town and strip
Paladim was well situated for access to old and new towns. Located close to shops inc good supermarket, restaurants, taxi rank. Room was spacious with large balcony. Maids cleaned room and made beds regularly. The room air conditioning was free to use. 24 hour reception and CCTV throughout hotel was reassuring.
No secure room for bags on checkout day. Internet on hotel computer was slow and quite expensive.
Good prices on food and drink. Air con,
Balcony overlooks busy roundabout. Not enough sun loungers.
this is our third time to aparthotel paladim, we find it quiet and peaceful and find it located just right for getting to the strip and old town in albuferia.
