Visited for 4 nights in early September, pool view 1 bed room was huge (more of a self catering apartment, with separate kitchen and sofa bed in lounge). Staff are efficient and friendly - we had an issue with our shower which we reported at breakfast on Sunday and the maintenance guy appeared by 10am!

Both pools were lovely and clean, no issue getting sunbeds. Larger north pool was great for swimming but tended to get rowdier later in day with kids. Nice mix of nationalities at the hotel

We were halfboard and the buffet was adequate - lots of choice at breakfast, evening meals were fine but not overly exciting, can imagine you would get bored if here for longer than 4 nights!

Hotel itself is in a quite remote area so not for you if you are looking to be right in the middle of the nightlife. Taxis to the strip etc would be quite reasonable though for evenings and the occasional free bus transfers Albufeira are great for a day visit. Beach is about a 20 minute walk and is beautiful, can walk all the way to Vilamoura in less than 2 hours.

This hotel is clean & welcoming. Staff friendly & efficient. Both pools are lovely with plenty of sun beds. Apartment 2 beds & 2 bathrooms - perfect for families with huge lounge & kitchen. Large balconies, hotel in quiet spot. Free courtesy bus to the old town & beautiful beach 20 min walk away. Lots of steps to beach & very steep road but so worth it - even the climb back up! Lovely ice cream parlour in square next to the beach.

I stayed at the Alpinus Hotel this August along with my wife and 3 kids (14,11,7). The hotel is situated about 25 minutes outside of Albufeira and the nearest beach is a 15 minute walk. The hotel itself was very clean and the room we stayed in had 2 bedrooms, a large sitting area including a kitchen and table, we also had 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies. The rooms were cleaned daily along with the towels changed. We never once seen any mozzies or other bugs the whole time we were there, apart from the baby gecko that seamed to live in the corridor which my youngest grew to love over the 2 weeks we were their. We were all inclusive so used the hotel buffet restaurant 3 times a day, the food was very good although we did get sick towards the end of our stay as it seamed very repetitive, there was always a good mixture to cater for all needs though. Don't let this put you off though as it was all very nice. The hotel staff were all very nice and would always go out their way to help you if you needed them to. This hotel is very much a family orientated hotel and their is plenty for young kids to do all day with the fab entertainment team. The only downside I thought was the night time entertainment was pretty poor and the small bar area that we ended up queuing for an age every time we wanted drinks. The pool areas were always very clean although they could do with some more sunbeds as it they always got taken pretty quickly even though a lot of them sat with towels on all day with nobody using them. All in all I would love to stay at the Alpinus again.

Room Tip: Families opt for a 2 bedroom suite as they are very spacious

Large clean and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms. Pool area clean. All inclusive food of a high quality but we felt that it was a bit repetitive having stopped at the hotel 10 days so started to eat out locally once a day for the last 5 days. Bar service was generally quick even during the evening entertainment but a quieter bar away from the entertainment at night time would have been good.

Room Tip: Rooms serviced daily. Great pillows.

This hotel is very good. It is located in a nice city of a nice country in Europe - just a two hour flight from the United Kingdom. The hotel rooms were nice and spacious and the campus (on which the hotel stood) was very big - providing us with lots to do: in pools and on the sides.

When deciding to come here - please note - breakfast is NOT complimentary. But apart from that I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
