Santa Eulalia Hotel Apartamento & Spa
Reviewed 21 October 2011

We recently stayed at Santa Eulalia and were very impressed. The rooms are basic but nice, the pool area was very nice, and it's location is brilliant: only 5 minutes walk to a nice beach and 10 minutes maximum to the main strip. I didn't think the staff were particularly friendly, but that doesn't matter much to me if the hotel itself good. Excellent value for money overall!

We stayed at the Santa Eualia (for the fourth time in 7 years, 5 if Globespan had not gone bust)
Usually we went on a package but because the travel companies who operate out of Scotland only provide all inclusive holidays, we booked flights, transfers and the aparthotel seperately and the total cost for a week was under £250 each.
On arrival we were surprised to see a new sign above the hotel where an HA was included when it wasn't the last time we were there three years ago.
Later in the holiday we noticed the sister hotel, the Dom Pancho was also displaying the logo HA. This made me believe that both had been bought over.
The front of house, bar, pool and lawn area were as they had been before, very well maintained and staff were still very friendly and helpful.
We had asked for the room we had occupied three times before but were told because the hotel was full this was not possible.
But, on arrival in our room we found it to be even better as it had a much wider view over the small forest, the hills and Atlantic all the way to Villamoura.
But there the good bits ended, on the second day we asked the housekeepers for a change of bath towels and this provoked a frantic discussion in Portugese which ended with a reply, "not possible for another three days"
The same reply when we asked for more toilet paper.
Had the hotel been taken over and the accountants taken charge we asked ourselves?
The housekeeping was sloppy, we found no evidence of the floor being cleaned and each day we returned we found the bedding had been thrown up, not carefully made up as you would expect.
This did put a bit of a damper on our holiday.
Sorry Giselia, but you need to turn the Santa Eulalia back to what it was when the guests were king and the money men did not have a say in the way it is run.

Room Tip: If you are a couple ask for room 324, views are incredible.

Went on a holiday here in early september and it was without doubt one of the worst apartments i ve stayed in. Our room was located right outside the lift shaft and stairs which is open. The noise at night was unbelievable. Ear plugs did nt even block it out. One night there was an awful commotion outside in the hallway and my husband eventually had to get up and go to the door to see what was happening.. A man 3 doors down was kicking the absolute crap out of his door trying to get in. Apparantly he had had a row with his other half and she locked him out. Where were reception when this was happening cause they defo would have heard it 2 flights of stairs down. Pictures shown of the apartments are also very misleading. They are quite old and the bottom of the bathroom door looks like it was flooded about 100 times and ready to fall off. the kitchen is tiny and again old. One plus is that the bedroom is quite a good size in that you were nt tripping over suitcases etc when you walked in.

Every night without fail we were woken up on average about 6 times. You would nt swing a cat on the balcony of the apt and we were also along a very busy road so if it was nt inconsiderate people waking us up it was the traffic.
Albuferia as a holiday destination was lovely. The food was lovely especially in the old town where we spent most nights. Queues for taxis for large most nights from 9.30 in the evening until the early hours. The beachs are clean and well kept and the food served in the restaurants and cafes along the beach front is of good quality. Dom carlos and Dom capito are both lovely for food. The strip is about a 7 min walk from the apts and the old town is prob about 30-35 mins but 4-5 euro in a taxi.
I will return to this part of portugal but WILL Never frequent this place again.
