    Location 4.17 /10

    The Montechoro is in the heart of a lively center with the same name and near a theme park. It is 2 miles away from Albufeira, 750 m away from da Oura beach and 20 miles west of the airport. You won't have any problem to find it, given its imposing size.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The rooms have all the necessary equipment : individual air conditioning, satellite television ( 16 channels), direct international telephone, safe (for a fee), Internet connection, a balcony with plastic garden furniture and a bathroom equipped with a bathtub and hair dryer.
    Carpet, bedding and curtains have orange shades but the colors look a little wilted. The decoration is simple. A pretty wall lamp greets you at the entrance of the room. The access corridors are particularly large.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Montechoro hotel is a white 10-floor building which opened its doors in 1984. It has 40 suites, 322 rooms and can accomodate 1000 people. From the outside, the Montechoro is not especially attractive : a white, massive structure with not very original architecture and a swimming pool which needs some renovation. Fortunately the inside is more pleasant : the Moroccan decoration, spacious common areas and a large terrace on the roof.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The restaurant room is totally in white and has a ceiling with several archways. On the opposite wall, a large painting with bright colors enhances the whole picture. Baywindows overlook the swimming pool. The buffet offers very fine Portuguese and international food . Barbecue night once a week around the swimming pool.
    Do not miss the 10th floor panoramic bar and the very pleasant piano-bar (the Almohade) located on the hotel's ground floor, decorated in a Moroccan style with sofa, cushions and coffee tables. Entertainment every night.

    Beach

    The nearest beach is Oura,  750 m away from the hotel.

    • Boa Vista Boa Vista Boa Vista

      • Value for money 6.84
      • Location 7.7

      Located on the outskirts of Albufeira a short walk from the beach, the Boa Vista has beautiful sea views and good service, despite its décor being a little dated. Although the rooms look a little higgledy-piggledy, we liked the fact that the rooms all had a different set of furniture and a different feel altogether. The area around the hotel is largely residential and is a great draw for tourists as it is far from the madding crowds near the harbour down below. The hotel, celebrating its 50th anniversary, has undeniable charm that cannot be created in a new-build; however, this does mean that the hotel looks a little old-fashioned. The Boa Vista mainly welcomes couples looking to spend some quality time together - there are few families with young children who stay here.

      Our favourite Vila Galé hotels in the Algarve region, the Vila Galé Praia, unlike its sister hotels, is a small hotel of 40 rooms that welcomes mainly couples due to the quiet atmosphere of the establishment. Modern, clean and comfortable as well as being just a two-minute walk to Praia Galé beach and a couple of beach restaurants serving excellent grilled fish, the hotel is one of our favourites for small budgets.

      Alisios is just two steps away from the beach, so that you almost forget the absence of an outside swimming pool. With its facilities it is more suited to couples than families.

      One of nine Vila Galé hotels in the Algarve region, the Vila Galé Cerro Alagoa is located in the small centre of Albufeira, a few minutes' walk to the beach. Typical of the large mass-tourism structures concentrated in certain areas of the Algarve, the Cerro Alagoa isn't our first choice for spending time relaxing in intimate surroundings, but is a great option for families on a budget as it has various facilities onsite and isn't far from the beach.

      The sprawling Balaia Golf Village is a large apartment-resort with hotel facilities, however, the founders have made sure that unlike many of these types of resorts in the region, and emphasis is placed on the resort gardens. The beautiful and well-maintained laws and colourful blooming bougainvillea, help to break up the heavy concrete structure of the establishment. Calm and pleasant with fairly good quality accommodations, the Balaia Golf Village is ideal for golfers due to its various golfing ranges as well as families and large groups of friends just looking for somewhere to spend some quality time together.

      As soon as you enter Vila Joya's gates, the rest of the world just becomes a distant memory. Along with the Bela Vista in Portimao, the Vila Joya is the best hotel in the Algarve as far as luxury boutique hotels go. With an intimate setting and extremely high-end facilities, stunning views and direct access to its own private little beach cove, there is absolutely nothing to add to this lovely hotel. Located close to Albufeira in Praia Galé, this is the only place to stay during a holiday around Albufeira. Not really a place for children, but more of an adult haven of peace and tranquillity for spending quality time with your other half, the Vila Joya is the jewel in the Albufeira crown.
