"Amazing!! Hands down the best hotel!"
This was hands down the very best hotel I have ever stayed at! VERY spacious rooms, incredibly well appointed amenities, super friendly staff, delicious food, cold drinks, awe inspiring views and so so quiet! I spent three days here with my sister and enjoyed every single minute. This is a bit of a remote location (which means nice and quiet) so I recommend […] you arrive by rental car. In the evenings we went on drives to neighboring beach towns, absolutely charming and wonderful. Fully relaxed! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little bit of heaven in the Algarve"
This resort is great: located in the middle of the Algarve, right along the walking path to see the most beautiful limestone cliffs, coves and caves on the planet. Great service at the front desk, in the dinig room and at the spa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a beautiful location. I would highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beutiful quiet resort on lovely beach"
Getting here may be a challenge, and GPS did not help, but it was worth it. The hotel is very clean, modern and groomed, the grounds are beautiful. Staff very helpful. The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen units well stocked. The beaches around the hotel are beautiful and quiet, definitely a great place. The restaurant is relatively expensive […] but excellent quality. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best Place in Portugal!"
After the first time I experienced Alba Suites it became my hotel of choice every time i visit Portugal. The Facilities are amazing, the staff are very accommodating. Besides it being a little difficult to get to for people new to the area the decor and peacefulness of the place make it worth the trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Christmas in Paradise."
We wanted to stay over the Christmas period. The ambience of SuitesAlba was FAB. Beautiful surroundings, amazing coastline, attentive staff, warm comfortable accommodation, great breakfasts and friendly guests. We also enjoyed the Spa with sauna, steam room, relaxing water beds, jet showers, swimming pool & gym. All included in the price. Treatments […] were excellent. We were also blessed with Glorious Sunshine. We chose a room with a sea view. Excellent tip from a previous review. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel but limited hot water available"
I stayed in the suite with two bedrooms. I thought the bedrooms were rather small. There were no kettle in the kitchen. I decide the quality of the hotel with its quality of the bathroom. This one had a very small bath tub and the hot water was limited. If one person took hot bath, then the hot water would not be available for the second person which […] I though was very poor for 5 star hotel rating. On up side, the restaurant was good, pleasant service. Spa was okay. Nothing out of ordinary. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, property, very relaxing"
Kids and we loved the place.very relaxing, great location. For directions, would be helpful to have GPS coordinates as well. Minor drawback is the one restaurant, although staff are helpful and willing to help book and offer other restaurant options if preferred.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great rooms and good service"
The suites were very large and comfortable. All rooms were air-conditioned (separately) and there was also a small outside patio with table/ chairs and a couple of sun loungers just beyond that. The main seawater pool was exceptional, although a little on the cold side - we didn't try the smaller fresh water pool or inside pool. The breakfast buffet […] was fine - at the expected level. The evening meals were very good, although limited menu and a bit pricy. There were a couple of weddings held while we were there but there was no noise or disruption to us at all.

Beautiful location, well appointed rooms and good service make this location a real haven of peace and tranquility. In a still unspoilt part of the Algarve it made for a delightful stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxing hotel with friendly staff"
Chose this hotel having read many of the excellent reviews about it. Wasn't disappointed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They seem to genuinely care about the quality of service they give. This is a tranquil oasis away from the high rise monstrosities elsewhere in the Algarve. The restaurant serves excellent food with an outside veranda that […] provides a stunning view of the sea. The grounds are well manicured and boosts an infinity pool again with spectacular views of the sea and coastline. The suites are well maintained with two bedrooms, dining room come kitchen and generous sized lounge. The bathroom had his and hers sinks. Breakfast was plentiful and varied with the perhaps the best fresh orange juice I have ever tasted. This is not party central but is great for couples who just want to unwind. The location of the hotel is on perhaps the most picturesque part of the Algarve.There is a small sandy cove very near to the hotel along with a beach bar which also does a limited menu. If you don't hire a car you would have to rely on taxis to get about due to this resort being off the beaten track. There are supermarkets easily accessable by car as the suites have a fridge and small hob to prepare simple meals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful hotel with average food"
The hotel is absolutely wonderful. It is located in remote location so renting a car is recommended. The hotel has direct access to a beach and has all neccecary amenities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Compact and friendly small complex."
We were warmly welcomed and shown around plus helped up the staircase with some of our luggage, and were impressed with the accommodation layout, cleanliness and comfort. All of the buffet breakfast food was very well prepared and attractively presented, and empty containers were quickly replenished. Freshly prepared coffee was far superior to that […] from the machine. We thought the standard of food prepared for evening dining was top quality, and 'romantic dining' was mentioned on all 3 occasions we ate there, however, with noisy children around us this didn't really work - perhaps 2 different dining areas could be provided? We hadn't known in advance about a set buffet menu on the Saturday evening, and the food, although very good, wasn't very hot. We stumbled across a live musician in the restaurant on Sunday, but hadn't known about this in advance and weren't aware on any other entertainment provided. This is a remote location and not that well sign posted or easy to track down until you are within close proximity. In fact the map we had didn't even show the resort but mentioned it's location between 2 other resorts so we knew which direction to head for! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Our little bit of paradise. . ."
Our second visit and we loved Suites Alba a little bit more than last year which we didn't think possible! Breath taking location, accommodating and service wonderful, loved the beach and spent every afternoon by the new 3rd pool. Kids loved it and miss it now we are home. Very quiet and remote so won't be for everyone but we absolutely loved it and […] hope to return again one day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"So-so resort saved by a fabulous location"
Suites alba is in a remarkable location - very isolated and away from touristy unpleasantness. It is on a stunningly beautiful beach with a lovely beach cafe/ restaurant making fab home made Crepes and pizza. We just loved our time on the beach... But suites alba is not, in my opinion, a 5 star resort. A solid 4 I think, but not five. The apartment […] was a good size but tired in decoration and bathroom ( pretty rubbish shower). The balcony was small and our apartment was dark and a bit dingy meaning we didn't want to spend much time in it. Ours was only a 4 day break so not the end of the world, but I would have struggled if it was a week or two. Service was friendly but not hugely flexible - I requested an apartment with a better view ( the car park!) and was told no, I requested a late check out and when told no, requested settling the account later in the day of departure so we could eat/ drink on tab until pick up for the airport at 6. Again, told no. Not a 5 star can do attitude. Some lovely individual waiting staff. All in all we had a great few days, but not because of the resort - because we made the most of each other and the wonderful location. Will definitely return to this part of the Algarve but probably not suites alba. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel too far"
Hotel is too far from most amenities. Useful if you would like to stay by the pool/beach only.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxing suites in beautiful quiet location"
Large tastefully furnished suites which are more like apartments in townhouses rather than hotel rooms. You therefore have the best of both worlds with hotel facilities but the option to self cater if you want to as there are kitchenettes in the suites. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The location is superb, situated on the cliffs overlooking […] the sea. If you want peace and quiet then this is the place for you. You can wander along the natural beauty of the cliffs & a boat ride to visit the sea caves is a must. The nearest beach is 2min walk & is a small beautiful isolated cove which has a beach bar. The nearest town is Caveiero which is 15min car ride. It is isolated but we got taxis easily enough to visit places or you may want to hire a car. The resort has a lovely spa & inside swimming pool, jacuzzi & gym though spa treatments weren't cheap they did have offers. There is a restaurant on site which does lovely food but is not that cheap. The breakfasts were plentiful. Staff were always very helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great quiet location"
A wonderful hotel with option of using the excellent 5 star restaurant/room service or self catering. I would agree with all other comments in that the location is very quiet so if you are looking for lively entertainment this not the place for you. A really great place to take a relaxing break.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful location but lacking some basics"
Incredibly difficult to find (not on radar even with Sat Nav) having to go down tight single track road. However, beautiful little resort at the top of a cliff with a pathway down to a secluded sandy beach. Lots of 2 bed apartments so suitable for families; but the kitchen lacked the basics to be comfortable - we had to go and buy cutlery as the handful […] of forks in the (mould smelling) draw were covered in rust spots. The water pipes also made some loud interesting noises during the night - and all the doors needed re-hanging (opening and closing them required effort and was noisy, so a visit to the loo in the night wakes everyone up). Morning breakfast buffet was excellent (including champagne on ice); but the restaurant was over-priced with slow service (despite being empty) for an evening meal. Small gym, 3 pools and a Spa, plus free Internet on a laptop in the lounge were good services; but could have done with an ATM and a small Shop on site as the location is pretty isolated. Overall, it was good; but didn't quite live up to expectations we had before arrival. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Great staff. easy walk to the beach. lovely pools.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing resort with a beautiful private beach"
We booked the deluxe room on Expedia and was greeted with a 2 bedroom suite with a kitchen area, dining room, living room and balcony. The suite was fully equipped for at least a family of 4 and the cleanliness and comfort of the room exceeded our expectations. Staff were very helpful and personal and assisted with all of our needs during our stay. […] The spa treatments are also amazing value for money and are definitely worth trying! Spa staff were professional and kind which made our spa experience extremely relaxing. The location of this resort offers exceptional views of the coast. However the location of the resort is far from local towns which required us to take taxis to each location which could end up being quite costly. But overall the stay at Suites Alba was exceptional and I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice intimate complex with good living quarters."

"Delightful, delightful, delightful !!!"
We watched the hotel video on utube before going and couldn't quite believe the quality of place and incredible villas, beaches, setting, gardens, pool, food etc etc. especially the price for what we seemed to be getting. It is all true and even better than you can imagine. The Villas are amazing, so spacious with quality furnishings. Just a fantastic […] place, we will be going back. This is a small thing, we wanted a quiet child free holiday, however the nature of this safe place with large spacious villas means it attracts lots of young couples with babies and toddlers, breakfast felt like eating in a nursery! They were very nice polite families but to sit amongst 8 toddlers running about and babies in high chairs, really got to me in the end. It would be good to have a baby/toddler separate area in the restaurant for those of us who are past that stage in our lives and just want peace and quiet. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very quiet and relaxing Hotel"
Very quiet hotel set in a remote part of the Algarve . Hard to get to but well worth it . Everything you need is onsite here . We spent one week in this hotel and loved every second . Car is a good idea but you could be ok with taxis . Not great for families as kids might be a little bored . Great for couples who just want to relax .Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is truly great. The suites are roomy and well laid out. Beds are very comfortable and bathroom is excellent. There are welcome chocolates on the table. After your check-in you are driven around the resort to give you possibility to acquaint yourself with surroundings. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Spa is well equipped. The restaurant is […] superb! I wholeheartedly recommend their dinners. Food is prepared with passion and expertise, which protrudes onto a plate. Food is of an excellent quality and perfectly plated. There are three reason, why this hotel does not get an Excellent overall rating. One is that there are absolutely no accessibility measures in the resort (my fiancee is blind), second is the WiFi, which is available, but leased from Vodafone and outrageously expensive. To add insult to a injury, credit card payment for the use of the internet does not work, and you can only pay with PayPal. There is some form of help, in the shape of a single, outdated laptop in the lounge area, which can be used for free (if no one else is using it. Third reason is the lounge itself. It is very dated, and stands out (in a bad way) from what is a superb quality resort. I would recommend this hotel to a friend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a little gem, would highly recommend. There is a short walk to the beach which is an unspoilt peace of heaven. If you like to get away from it all this is your place, if you want to party all night stay away.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location away from typical holiday resorts, next to beautiful beach and stunning coastline. Infinity pool and spa are fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
We liked it at Alba Suites very much. Our suite was very pleasant, home from home. However, in the grounds there was a problem with annoying wasps which we had never experienced in the Algarve during our many visits. We suspect a wasp nest close by? The restaraunt was a little disappointing in the evening as same menu was à la carte for 6 nights, which […] means small portions, but we would recommend the Saturday night BBQ. We went into town most evenings, the hotel staff were happy to book taxi for us. All in all, a very enjoyable holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Accomodation was excellent, access roadways were poor.[ not a motorway!] Facilities were good, staff were friendly and helpful. While the kitchen lay out was first class, the cooking utensils, delph and cutlery were of poor quality and scarce.- this was surprising considering the overall standard of the resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shame we had to home !"
We had a wonderful time at Suites Alba. The resort is clean, organised, friendly and very professional. We have a five year old and a four year old and the facilities catered for them perfectly. I would recommend this to families who want a restful holiday with young children. You do need a car though as there is no shop on site at the resort so if […] you want to eat anything outside of the restaurant or room service, you need a 10 minute drive to the nearest town. The only other thing to be aware of is that the walk down to the beach is quite steep - it's absolutely fine for able bodied adults and children (don't get me wrong - it's certainly not unsafe) but elderly people and parents with very small children (and lots of the associated gear to cart around!) may find the walk a little challenging. To be honest, Suites Alba delivered us our most relaxing and enjoyable family holiday to date - we can't recommend it highly enough. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel that never feels crowded"
As a family of 4 we stayed in a family suite which had a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. The accommodation was superb, with a large living room and a kitchen with fridge, microwave, cooker etc. Whilst we usually ate out at the hotel restaurant or other local restaurants, it was nice to have the option to stay in occasionally and prepare a simple […] meal. The resort is rather remote at the end of a long and narrow winding road which means you really would need to hire a car. On the plus side, this means the resort is very private and the beach, although small, is never busy. The food in the hotel is of a very high standard although there is only 1 restaurant. The only bar/restaurant outside of the hotel that is within walking distance is beside the small beach adjacent to the hotel. This is called Pirata (Pirates) and from this unassuming little shack comes some of the most delicious food! Everything is homemade, including the ice cream (and even the cones) and is exquisitely delicious. The pizza is as good as I have had anywhere and they also do fantastic seafood dishes. Well worth a visit. All in all, I would have no hesitation in recommending Suites Alba. It is rather a small resort compared to the likes of the Vila Vita Parc etc so if you want to do more than simply relax by the pool with a book and a cocktail then a hire car is a must.

"Great for a relaxing getaway"
We had a fantastic relaxing stay in a Villa. Accommodation was very spacious and comfortable with the kitchen very use-able. We had the bottom floor of the duplex and so also some loungers outside at the back. The shared pool area has views out to the sea. The food served for lunch here was very good both times we tried it. Breakfast is also served […] in this area which was a good sized buffet with lots of hot and cold options. The pool itself is clean but not huge or heated (which I believe is pretty standard in the area). The nearest beach however is only a 10 minute walk and has gently sloping sandy beaches. So if you can handle the temperatures in the Atlantic it's good for a swim. The area itself is stunning with lots of bird-life and wild flowers and a network of cliffside walks to explore. This is reflected in the resort where a lot of care is taken of the gardened areas. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I'm struggling to find anything to fault. The location is fairly isolated but that's what we were looking for. We went in to town once during our week stay and that was a reasonably cheap 20 min cab ride each way. No problems either getting reception to arrange the taxi out or getting a cab at the taxi rank in town to take us back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful beach and rooms"
The rooms were clean, beautiful, and huge. The staff was super friendly, and beach was amazing. Pool was beautiful but a bit small. There are many beautiful places for happy hour. Spa treatments are high quality with good prices (105 euro for a 50 min couples massage). The breakfast was excellent. The lunch was average (...with slow service, which only […] mattered on the last day when we needed to get going). Even though the parking lot was always full, it never seemed crowded, which was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Secluded Resort and Spa"
positives: Huge 2 bedroom villa furnished with amenities, Secluded beach, it's public beach, but we were the only there so it felt like private beach. Wonderful staff who are very courteous and would go the extra mile to please you. Nice Spa with gym and indoor pool, my wife did a massage and they went 20 min longer than what she paid for. Breakfast […] with plenty of selections. negatives: too secluded, have to have a car and drive 5 to 10 km to find good restaurants. If you are a runner, there is practically no place to jog or run nearby. The off road to the resort is invested with wild dogs, so its not recommended to wander outside the resort area. Internet WiFi is extra and a bit spotty. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Paradise in the Algarve"
Staff are very professional, friendly and helpful. Suites are very well-equipped, spacious, and clean. The services of the spa, restaurant and childrens play-area are excellent, and in summer the outdoor, salt-water swimming pools must be wonderful with the direct views of the ocean. The overall cliff-top setting and remote location of the resort is […] out-of-this-world, with fanstastic coastal walks on the door-step, and beautiful secluded, sandy beaches within close proximity. The access road to the resort is very narrow - but there are enough passing places. The small town of Lagoa is close-by if you need to stock-up with provisions from the supermarket. Suites Alba is a great place to relax and a base from which to enjoy the beautiful coastal landscape - highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
