“Perfect location and pool area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2012

Stayed her the end of June 2011 this was my second vist to this hotel. The location of this hotel is fantastic right on the beach and a very short walk from main strip. The pool area is brilliant you get a new pool towel on a daily basis. The best bit about the pool is that u can get up at any time of the day and get a sun lounger. The negative about the pool area is the restaurant very expensive and service not great would recommend going next door to the oriental for food.

We stayed in the rooms that have sunloungers on the balcony which was fantastic to lie out if we didn't want to go to the pool. Negatives on the rooms bit dated and dark.

Cant say much for the bar area in the hotel never anything happening there but can always pop to the casino. Connecting corridor from the hotel. Didn't go to any of the cabaret nights.

Didnt find the staff very friendly this time round at reception had issues with the broad band and went to reception to report it was told that happens and given my money back asked if it would be fixed was told don't know. Also there was some sort of leak from the roof around reception so buckets around the place. For the price you pay for this place you would expect a higher standard.

The reason that I am swayed to this hotel is for the pool area and the location but if returning next year might try somewhere different as the beaches are fab and you can find really quite areas to put down your towel. I returned in September and did stay in the sol flor which was lovely but not on the same scale as the casino hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel for several years in a row over the festive season. All I can say is WONDERFUL.

The staff are outstanding, facilities top class and the Gala Buffet on hogmanay was out of this world. Sadly we cannot manage this year and will definitely miss it.

Love it. Great hotel and great beach. Nice bar overlooking the beach. So good for the money. Hotel looks horrid from the beach but it is great.
Sea view rooms are large but slightly dated. Cafe across the road is great and so are the beach huts for food. High street food poor but go to Alvor. Go at low season and it's class. Go in July/Aug = teenage trash.
Great place! Book today....

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

2 things are good here, the location and view, the rest was ok but not worth a repeat visit. The rooms are clean and large with balconies overlooking the stunning beach. The hotel feels impersonal and slightly faded. More of a conference hotel with the benefit of a large pool or beach,
The restaurant is diabolical, a hybrid of a Butlins Camp and the Moulin Rouge with food prepared by cooks using cantine packet ingredients. Breakfast on the other hand was good. And the staff was well trained and efficient.
Overall experience: we slept and had a roof over our heads for 4 night, but it is not a place to remember with longing to return.

Room Tip: Sea side rooms have balconies and splendid views

Just returned from lovely holiday at Hotel Algarve Casino.Fantastic location by the beach, swimming pool with heated sea water, poolside bar and cafe. Brilliant buffet breakfast, Casino at night within the hotel.
Staff are great, many have been there since hotel opened, reception staff extremely helpful.
We had great room facing sea with balcony, really great.

Room Tip: Have a sea view room, worth extra money.
