Alte is a nice small town in the countryside of Algarve quite away from the sea. The hotel is the only one in that area –its worth for the peaceful ambience and the panoramic view. As a hotel it doesn’t have anything special to point out; it’s just an average hotel already quite dated.

Did not stay at this place but had a lovely lunch there. I was with a group visiting the area. The hotel had wonderful views, but there are a lot of steps. Had a walk around the river which is a must for everyone visiting Alte.

Just got back after spending two weeks here and we loved it. We always stayed on the coast before so being inland was a new experience for us but the hotel and the stunning scenery made it for us. The location is remote so hiring a car is a must if you want to explore but there is a village... More

Having just returned from a week in Late hotel I feel I can only describe our visit as faultless! Every aspect of our stay from the food to the helpfulness of the staff exceeded all expectations.

Good was good but the service was slow and there was only a few other tables. Sirloin in the mushroom sauce was good, wasn't medium but it was still good. The dessert menu wasn't detailed or varied but the lemon pie was good. Would go again.

This was our second visit to Hotel Alte and left us a little disappointed. Once again the staff were excellent but the management were poor. We ordered a fridge in both rooms, important for me as I am a diabetic and need to keep my insulin cool, but arrived to find no fridges. They managed to get one but it... More

Great get away location. Such a shame the hotel is stuck in the 1970's. Hardly anything on the breakfast table this morning by 0.930 but then the kitchen managed to scramble 3 eggs between the 8 or 9 people waiting.

Hidden away up in the countryside just outside Alte stands the Alte Hotel. Although the decor leaves a bit to be desired, stick with it for the food. They serve a Sunday special of a starter and a main for €10 - the main when we were there was Javali (wild boar stew). Now the secret is out I hope... More
