Intimate, unfussy and handy for Albufeira old town and the beach, the Casa Mitchell concentrates on the essentials and gets them just right.
The Casa Mitchell keeps things simple. Set in a converted old townhouse in Albufeira, it’s small and family-run, with a friendly atmosphere. Plus, it’s handy for all the resort’s attractions. You’ve got the restaurants, bars and shops of the old town just a ten-minute downhill walk away. Then there’s Fisherman’s Beach – its curve of sands is roughly the same distance away.
As for the hotel itself, it offers one-bedroom apartments and studios spread over the house, with some overlooking the garden. They’re all spacious and traditionally decorated with pine furnishings and terracotta floors.
Outside, there’s a pool with a terrace and sunloungers, as well as lawns framed by trees and flowering shrubs. There’s not much else in terms of facilities, which is a bonus if you’re looking for a quiet base. With no restaurant or pool bar, the hotel tends to stay quiet and laid-back, with most people heading in to town during the days and evenings.

Small & Friendly
Lovely small and friendly apartments very spacious overlooking the pool, staff very helpful and Laura the rep was great. First time in portugal but if I was to go back I would definitely stay at these apartments again, great location near to everything but nice and quiet too, some great little cafe/bars close by, had a great time especially on the sunset/mountain trip, endless champagne on top of mountain would defo recommend that trip.More

Super apartments and location
Much the same as other reviews, we had a fabulous time and met some lovely people and made new friends. Our apartment was pretty much perfect, very clean and spacious and overlooking the pool. We found the reception staff very helpful and knowledgable. we went on 3 trips and thoroughly enjoyed all of them - Loule market, catamaran grottoes and caves and the sunset/ mountain 4x4 trip. We used the little restaurant/bar over the road almost daily for a lunch, a beer or just a cafe. There is a handy mini-market on the corner and a bigger one about 10 minutes away. Having never been to Albufeira before we were blown away with the square and its street performers, restaurants, shops and bars both through the day and in the evening - it was wonderful. We had one of our best holidays this year due to location, accommodation, friends made and experiences; so much so we will certainly return as there is still very much to explore and experience. More

Terrific holiday destination
Spent a week at casa Mitchell in July 2014. What a gem of a find, so friendly and clean a perfect base for albufeira old town and marina. Laura the 'rep' was a star and brightened every day with her visit. Would definitely return.More

Have stayed here twice now and can't fault it. Lovely room overlooking pool which is normally quiet. Enough bars and cafes close by to occupy ourselves. A quite short walk down to the old town provides a far wider choice. But beware of the walk back up the hill !! Can recommend a stop off at Tunes bar. Try Micheals pork pie lunch .... MMmm. Brought one home with us. There is a lovely Portuguese restaurant across the road at the roundabout. Highly recommended (just under the steak restaurant) and don't forget the Indians at the top of the bank on the other side of the roundabout. All in all this part of the town is developing enough to keep you from having to go down to the old town every night. Can't wait to go back.More

What a Gem
My Wife, Daughter and myself have just had a fantastic week at the Casa Mitchell. We stayed self catering in room 54 and found it very comfortable and well presented with a position right next to the pool and garden. We had breakfast in the room every day but ate out at all other times, there is a small restaurant directly opposite the property which is quite reasonable for snacks and a little corner shop for milk, bread etc. owned by two really friendly people, just up the road. As other guests have mentioned, it is a bit hilly but even two old geriatrics like my wife and myself managed to get down to the Old Town to amble about and to eat. The Staff at the Casa Mitchell were all absolutely great, always willing to help and always smiling, this makes for a great holiday. This place is a little gem and well worth looking out for, we will, all being well, go back again. Thomson's rep Laura also made our stay enjoyable, well done to everyone and thanks or as they say in Portugal "Obrigada".More
