Loved it for the 3rd Time and already booked to return!
We are a family of three - our daughter is 9 - we have a studio pool view apartment which suits us perfectly (as out daughter would not sleep i the lounge on her own and I don't fancy the put up beds!) The apartments are dated but extremely clean and you have everything you need to prepare basics - I am on holiday so am not going to prepare an evening meal but am quite happy to prepare breakfast and lunch! Personally I didn't have a bad nights sleep but you have to remember you are not staying at the Savoy! We never had a problem getting a sunbed and don't know anyone who queued from 7.30!! Yes people do queue from around 8.30 but there were always sunbeds to be had. we arrived at the resort at 1.30 in the afternoon and got 3 sunbeds easily! We also ate at the pool bar which was reasonably priced and very nice. If you have mobility issues then this hotel is probably not for you as the Old Town is a 10 minute walk down a steep incline until you get to the escalators but we walked every evening and walked back (didn't feel the need to queue for a cab) and treated ourselves to a cake to eat on the balcony. You must go to the Patissiere! Friends who had no children and were staying in Villamoura came to meet us one night and loved it so much they returned for another night out with us - try the cocktails on the the beach bags - the Mojitos are to die for! The Old Town did seem a lot busier than when we have visited before but we have never travelled at the beginning of August. My daughter and husband swam with the dolphins at Zoomarine which they enjoyed immensely. Would highly recommend. To sum up our holiday, we had wonderful food, great family time and sun and that was what we were after. We certainly didn't encounter groups of 18-30's getting drunk! We used Yellowfish transfers rather than get on the Thompson bus (which worked out cheaper)which I would highly recommend - we also hired the portable Wifi which was brilliant.More
Just returned today from a 10 day stay at Brisa Sol and this is a hotel we would return to. We were room 008 and had requested a pool view. Our apartment was a decent size for 2 adults and 2 children (11 & 13) so we didn't feel on top of each other at all and because the pool area is shut on an evening there is no noise just a beautiful outlook over the illuminated pool. We had no issues with noise during our stay. The staff at this hotel work really hard and as a result the hotel is spotless also the maids tidy up the rooms daily which is lovely, Couldn't comment on the food as we didn't eat at the hotel at all. The supermarket next door was fab, so we had breakfast and lunch in our room every day and on an evening we walked to the Old town for dinner. Never ventured to the strip as we loved the old town so much. SUN BED FUN!!!, yes it all gets a bit silly, people queue from the crack of dawn then fall out with people who run past them to get a bed!!. We however had no problems getting a bed at all. Set your alarm for 9am, go to the balcony and watch everyone rush out and smile :-). 9.10am walk down to the pool and you are still able to get beds. Most days whilst we were their, there were still free beds about at 11ish!. The rush I feel is for the parasols as it is so hot you do need some shade. For 10 euros you can buy a nice parasol from the supermarket and lie on the grass if needs be, this is what we would have done if we had, had a problem. Had a day out to Zoomarine and loved it. Overall a lovely hotel in a lovely area.More

i have just stayed at this hotel for 1 week self catering We were on the the 5th floor and had a great view of pool and sea. apartments very big, very clean. apartments are cleaned every day and had clean towels. There is a slight rush for the sunloungers but never failed to get one. Staff are very friendly and helpful. there is a good games room which my 10yr old played pool every night. my only small complaint is we are a family of 3 and being in a 1 bed apy there was 2 single beds and 2 sofa beds the complaint is the sofa beds are not very comfy. theres a great supermarket ( very cheap ) i would highly recomend the cake shop underneath the hotel, the big shanghia chinese to right of the hotel and the little train is cheap and a good way to get round the the resort .. would definatley return More

Great holiday lovely apts
We have just returned from a family holiday at the brisa sol in albuferia. On arrival we were checked in very quickly and went to,our rooms, they were pool views and sea views on the third floor. The apts are very spacious and very well equipped, although we did not do any cooking in them. The pool area is really nice with some green areas, there is the usual dash for the sunbeds at 9am when the pool,opens but that's nothing new. We didn't eat in the restaurant because the restaurants in the old town in albuferia are very varied and really reasonably priced. We did think the breakfast in the hotel didn't look worth 8 euros so we ate everyday in the small English cafe called the cottage which did an excellent English breakfast,We caught the little train there some mornings that picks up a outside the hotel., you can ride on it all day for 4 Euros. All In all we really enjoyed our stay there and would certainly stay there again.More

Sun bed hell!!!
Just spent two weeks at the Brisa Sol and unfortunately this place was below my expectations. The old town is only a 10 minute walk away down some steep hills. The sun beds require you to start queuing at about 7.30am in order to ensure you get a spot by the pool. The beds I found really uncomfortable, the pillows felt like sleeping on a 5lb bag of spuds, our apartment was 128 which had a pool view but the rear end of the apartment was over the busy main road. The road was busier during the hours of 1-4am with all the drunks returning from the clubs etc shouting and yelling out loud. The staff are helpful and we did use the buffet restaurant of an evening which we found was alright. The location is poor as you have either a Macdonalds or a KFC across the road, the same as in the UK. The old town dies get busy in the evenings with lots of 18-30s going on and on one occasion we waited just over an hour for a taxi ride back up the steep hills to the hotel. We went to the strip which is about 10-15 minutes the other way and to be fair this was a sleazy place to go. This restricted us to where we could go as these are the only 2 places to visit. We went to Villamoura for the one day and what a difference this resort is, plenty of restaurants and a beautiful marina with a glorious beach. The taxis cost was 18e each way but well worth a visit. The excursions are mainly boat rides or aqua parks for young children, these never appealed to us. The hotel is fine the location is poor, We have normally stayed in resorts whereas all the bars and restaurants are directly outside the hotel doors. I don't think we will return but I'm glad we experienced Portugal.More
