Aparthotel Brisa Sol  


The Aparthotel Brisa Sol has a great location, within easy walking distance of Albufeira’s shops, bars and beaches.

Aparthotel Brisa Sol is set between the new and old parts of Albufeira – you can walk to both in less than 15 minutes. There are plenty of bars and restaurants on both sides, as well as sandy beaches.

Apartments and studios come with kitchenettes, as well as roomy balconies for al fresco dining. There’s also a restaurant and a snack bar, and a big pool edged by a well-kept lawn.

The best

Currently here till 7 th September just ignore the bad reviews this place is the best. The breakfast is fantastic full English or continental. Fantastic position next door to a great supermarket very cheap shopping. 10 minutes to the old town and strip. Apartments are very big and spotless cleaned everyday the staff are great. Yes there is a rush for sunbeds but there are enough for everyone. It's a real gem fantastic cake shop next door. We already booked to come back and speaking to most people they've all been before. Couldn't find a negative thing to say about this place. More

Great hotel located just where u would wanna be in between old and new town and 10 min walk to the beach. Close to supermarket KFC and McDonalds. Rooms clean and spacious cleaned daily and towels and bedding changed, pool clean but bloody freezing lol staff really friendly and helpful couldn't recommend this place highly enough having been several times and would go again given half a chanceMore

Perfect relaxing holiday

Lovely rooms, worth paying a little extra for the suite....much bigger. Staff very helpful and friendly. Very clean hotel all round including the pool area. Perfectly situated, only a short walk to the old town which offers many restaurants serving delicious food, def try the fish it's so fresh. Beaches are stunning and again 5 min walk away. Would def stay here again More


Best holiday for us so far

On arriving at the Brisa Sol, we new straight away that we'd done well. After a great straight forward check in with a smile, we found our room. Slightly disappointed by the decor, as most people say on here, they're in need of an update. Sea and pool view from balcony is nice, although there are a lot of rooms on the other side of the hotel that don't have this so make it a request when booking. It can be a bit of a rush to get a sunbed but if you get down there for around 08:45, pool open at 09:00, you'll get one/some no problem. Drop your towel on them and pop back later if you want. Can't comment on the restaurant as we were self catering, but several fast food places over the road, an amazing cake shop next door and countless great places to eat in both the old town and the strip, which the Brisa Sol is in the middle of. The tourist "train" that stops outside is a godsend, Only 4 Euros Per adult for an all day ticket, under 5's go free. This takes you up to the strip and around to the old town so is great. It runs every 20 mins. Hotel entertainment is a big let down, so don't expect a live X factor show or anything like that, expect more along the lines of a poor working mens club turn. Plenty of street entertainers in the old town, some good, some not so. Zoo Marine is a great day out for everyone, with dolphin, sea lion and bird shows as well as a pirate show for the kids. They also have a man-made beach with waves and another couple of smaller pools with some nice features so expect to get wet. Only thing I would definitely recommend about the place is make sure you get a locker as soon as you get there as there are no where near enough to go around. Back to the hotel and would like to say the cleaners do a great job, in the room every day and around the hotel morning to night, they don't stop. Staff are a very friendly bunch and are happy to help. Would have given an excellent rating had the room been at the same standard as the rest of the hotel. Overall, a great time was had by all and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to be in the middle of old town and strip.More

Fantastic stay!

Just back from an amazing 11 days at the Brisa Sol in Albufeira. We had a poolside studio apartment for myself, my husband and our 7 year old daughter. I cannot recommend the Brisa Sol highly enough for the relaxing holiday we had there. There is a big rush for the sunbeds every morning and I don't know why. There are always beds available at any time of the day. Umbrellas might be a problem (not enough for everyone) but we bought one for 6 euro on our first day in the supermarket and didn't have to worry for the rest of the holiday. We have stayed in this location before but once we found the Brisa Sol we wouldn't stay anywhere else. The rooms are a bit dated and the cooking facilities very basic and there is no ice compartment in the fridge but we got over these little things and were prepared for this before we went. A great location between old and new town. MacDonalds and KFC across the road. Big shopping centre next door and another large supermarket (Pingo Doce) across the road. We are definitely going back next year. Just waiting to see flight schedules so we can book! We also booked Yellowfish for transfers to and from the resort. They are absolutely brilliant and we had them last year also. Any driver we have had has excellent English and are so pleasant. Very reasonably priced (30 euro each way) and you don't have to pay until you get there!More
