We stayed in a one-bedroom apartment, at the Vila Petra, Feb. 13th to Feb. 27th, 2017. Situated in a quiet area, just off the highest end of the"Strip", it's close to restaurants, clubs, tourist train, and bus stops. The hotel is clean, with friendly staff, nice facilities, and comfortable accommodation. The front desk staff are wonderfully helpful and pleasant. There's...

Booked a pool view room studio for a short one week stay recently. The room and facilities were fabulous. Though it is off season and quiet just now, the hotel and grounds are immaculate. Our room had bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, with all you could require including dishwasher. The hotel restaurant provides well priced takeaway meals, which are popular...

Vila Petra is located just off the Albufeira Strip and about 1.5 km from Oura Beach, an easy walk downhill (the hotel provides a shuttle too.) We were there as part of a group from Ottawa for 11 days. It's a lovely apartment hotel, in a pretty quiet area, yet you can walk to many of Albufeira's attractions. (Old Town,...

This aparthotel has been recently refinished. The beds are very comfortable with memory foam and the pillows just as nice. I always ask for extra pillows because a lot of places seem to find the cheapest and flattest things. The kitchen is very well equipped with all the day to day items you would need to make a simple meal....
