    Nice modern reception area, fine size rooms although getting a bit dated, need new pillows, staff very friendly and helpful breakfast good value.

    problem with the pool children getting sore feet best to wear socks or pool shoes

    Tropical Sol was very clean, comfortable and well presented. The pool area was maintained to a high standard. Parents can relax by the pool knowing it is a safe and secure area for young children to play as it is enclosed by very high perimiter fencing. It is close to the beach, resturants and the ' Strip' but far enough so as not to be affected by the late night bars and clubs. Old Town Albuferia is approximatley 30 minutes walking distance.

    Almost everything.very clean and comfortable.only complaint was sometimes a lack of loungers around pool.

  • Group of friends

    Outdoors very well taken care of. Very nice pool. Rooms need a lot of work.

    It was very dirty and smelled. Our washroom smelled like urine. There was hair on the wall and floors. There was cigarette ash on the bedspread.

  • Family with children

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was right over the bar and because we had children I asked to be moved. No room was available but I was assured that the bar was very quiet, which it was, no noise at all! Pool was nice. All public areas were modern.

    The 2 bed apt we had was in serious need of upgrading & after seeing the public areas there was no way you would be anything other than disappionted. With accomodation so readily available they need to upgrade.

    I booked this hotel fairly last minute and only stayed for one night so cannot comment fully on all the facilities. The reception, bar and breakfast room appear to have been modernised. The room itself was a little dated but was very clean. It had everything you would need, remote control air con, tv, complimentary toiletries, fully stocked kitchen. We were ground floor and our terrace looked out onto the pool area, which was nice.

    The pool area could probably do with some more sun lounges.

  • Older travelers

    Staff were very courteous, excellent pool snack bar where the food was excellent value and staff were very efficient, always wearing a smile and made time to have a chat with everyone. The pool is a nice size and always in pristine condition.Sunbeds were always available so no rushing to get your towels down early morning.Apartments are quite large and are spotlessly clean.A Very good location were everything you would require is within a five minute walk. We will certainly return to Tropical Sol when we go to the Albufeira

    Beds not very comfortable, pillows need changing, cooker very small. Apart from this I cannot find anything else wrong

    We have been going to this hotel for many years and have made many friends that we meet up with every year. The rooms have everything we need and the hotel is situated within easy reach of everything we want to get to. The snack bar is very nice and the food and beverages are cooked and served by Francisco and Natalie who are lovely people, all the staff are helpful, I would recommend this hotel to everyone regardless of age

    I wish they would put some entertainment in the lounge bar in the evenings the tv is not enough one or two nights a week would be lovely. everything else is super

    Alas we have now returned home to the wind and rain from one of the most enjoyable holidays ever. From the moment we checked in to our hotel which took all of one minute supervised by the beautiful Mara until we checked out our stay was perfect in every feature. The level of cleanliness right throughout the premises was second to none. I would like to cheers to Sara and the bar team for the friendly and excellent service. To all at reception for all the help with calling taxis and general directions we say thank you so much. Already looking forward to our next stay in this gem. Kind Regards Martin and Sinead and friends.

    Clean comfortable studios plenty of room for three people. Cleaned daily. Great location near to beach (7mins walk} and Strip with bars restaurants and shops about 5mins walk.Also only 4euro in taxi to old town with lots of bars and restaurants also. Would definitely recommend The Tropical Sol.

    Beds a bit hard.No entertainment in hotel at night.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Spacious accommodation in studio apartment.Clean towels and maid service every day.Very well maintained pool and all general areas very clean. Shops near by.

    Lumpy pillows.Freezer compartment in fridge would be useful.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    The relaxed atmosphere around the pool and the staff in the snack bar. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was excellent.

    Unfortunately we had ants in the kitchen. It appeared that the seal between the worktop and the wall was not sealed properly (or maybe it was well worn) but we had ants on the counters every morning. On 1 of our days the beds were not made and at no time during our stay were the sheets changed even though it stated that they would be changed once a week, in the hotel information that was left in our room.
