We just got back from a wonderful holiday in Algarve! Ok this hotel is a bit far from the main strip or the old town, but its location is as wonderful as if it was! Yeah ok ok its a bit quiet but who wants kids running and screaming while you want to relax by the pool....yeah so what it has a pizza place open to the public..how much time do you spend the restaurant anyways!!! You can also take your food next to the pool and enjoy it there!! Food not the best but its not like anybody is forcing you to eat there for God sakes!!!! Breakfast was great...really nice FRESH not stale bread..lovely croissants and cakes..fresh eggs and bacon cooked in front of you by a lovely lady! What the hell do ppl eat in the morning?!?!COME OOONNN you lot just want to complain for nothing.....The beach next to this hotel (about 7-10min walk) its so beautiful it takes your breath away...so unspoiled...its little so hurry up in the morning and get a nice place! Restaurant on the beach a bit pricey so ill get a packed lunch! We climbed an the rocks and got the most amazing pictures EVER!! Really amazing...the water is lovely as well....at the far right of the beach there is a little cave which you have to explore first thing in the morning as the tide come after 12 so it will be a bit dangerous after!

All in all this hotel was delightful...rooms lovely and clean! And who said the cleaning lady was not smiley enough!! WHAT DO YOU WANT HER TO DO?!?! Cleaning in 40 degrees cant be that FUN!!! She was lovely....gave her a big tip for all the hard work she has done!! And we did actually have a room at the back at the hotel but we had the most amazing sunrises EVER!! Some ppl are just to pretentious....think they should go and sleep in their own tent and SHUT UP!! Recommend this hotel to everyone!! kids will love the pool (they have a kids pool as well) and the beach..so child friendly! Also me and my partner loved just walking hand in hand picking lovely rocks from the most unspoiled beach ever!

I was sold this hotel by Travel Republic who falsley claimed it was a best Western Hotel, it is a distance from the resort of Albufeira with a mini bus that operates twice a day on request at a time suitable to the hotel staff, the local bus requires a change of buses. The only way to get around is by Taxi or by hiring a car. When I arrived it was deserted, the first day I w as the only one in the dining room and the only one in the pool, there was no one else about I could have drowned and no one would have known. It was spooky bing on your own in an almost deserted place. It is a big Hotel, the staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. I went Bed and Breakfast so that I could use different restaurants in the evening but the only local one was up the road next to a small shop laughingly called a supermarket. I do not blame the Hotel for my ruined holiday the blame rests firmly on the shoulders of Travel Republic who dumped me in the wilds and when contacted did not want to know unless I paid myself, for a different Hotel, so beware if you are travelling with this Company they really could not care less about their clients. To add insult to injury they have offered me a 5% discount on my next holiday with them, as if ! I spent a fortune on Taxis and I am sure my dogs had a better time in the kennels than I had at least they had company.

Room Tip: If you get the room facing the waste ground, or the building site ask for a move

We have just got back from a few days at the Hotel Maritur and we were pleasantly surprised given the bad review recently. The hotel staff were very helpful and the reception staff were always friendly and helpfull. At breakfast you could order a hot breakrfast , they would cook you what you liked, ie scrambled egg, bacon, sausage etc. In the evening the receptionist would be happy to book you a taxi to town and the internet was free, a little slow but free. The room was clean and we had a sea view, there is a hotel being built but we had no noise whilst we were there. There is a gym and indoor swimming pool and two outdoor pools. All very good. We had no complaints at all. There is a bus to the old town but a taxi is the same price. At the strip we ate at Wild Co, a little more expensive than the other restaurants but worth a visit if you like steak. Thank you to all at the hotel.

Best Western website states there is ice and vending machine on each floor but none cannot be seen. also the on site restraunte is very basic and exspensive to eat. Needs a complete over look on the menu (Maritur Pizza) (Tomato base with cheese prawns and BANANA) !!!! the buffet style breakfast is probably the biggest joke. you get a selection of stale bread and a £3 white plastic toaster that takes 10 mins to gently brown your bread. then you get a selection of 1 cheese, ham and salami...cheap place to eat 50 meter down the road. £4 euro for a full english. you can smell the pool as you walk into the restraunte which is a delightful smell as your about to tuck into your meal... also the restraunte is open to the general public with its big blue flasing light on the outside of pizza take out....

Staff are great to speak to, always helpful and will answer any question with regards to the area, pool area is basic with ya cheap blue and yellow plastic sun loungers based on the grass. indoor pool is ok with your jaquzzi. rooms could do with some coffee / tea making facilities. although there is a fridge in your room which is nice.

Cleaners seem quite scary, banging on your shouting clean clean clean... getting a smile out of them will be like finding gold at end of the rainbow.... General manner of the hotel is quite airy with no music playin where you eat.

Could do with a quick update of rooms and double beds that dont have single pushed together that slide apart.

Give this hotel 2 out of 5.

Dear Sir
we do not belong to Best Western and we can not control the false information posted on the Internet.
We don´t have Vending machines on the room floors because of the noise, but we have a room near reception with a vending machine where you can stay for a drink or for smoke since it is not allowed to smoke in other areas of the hotel.
You could asked for information in reception but you didn´t.
We regret that you didn´t like our Hotel, we tried our best to satisfy our customers.
Regards
