"Good, Budget Option"
Spacious budget option that is close to Salgados and Gale beaches. Good value for the money, but not super nice/fancy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"COSTA DE CAPRICA"
HOTEL IS BADLY MAINTAINED. HOTEL INFO WASN'T CLEARLY ADVERTISED ON THE WEBSITEGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location. Really nice staff. Hotel so-so."
The experience of holiday I will always treasure. The area and beaches are beautiful. The hotel could do with updating and a paint job. The hotel is for people who don't mind going without luxuries for a few days. But if you are the type that will spend most of your time away from the resort, adventuring out to the local beaches and towns then you won't […] mind the decor of the hotel. Meals are really nicely prepared and surprisingly cheaper than the surrounding restaurants. There is only one cash point in the area that doesn't get filled during the weekend, although most of the restaurants take card, take an amount of cash that will suffice. All in all I had a wonderful trip and highly recommend Portugal and booking through Expedia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice family hotel"
The hotel is excellent for family but young people as well. Very friendly staff who always help. Very close to the beach and to the supermarket what is very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for family"
Friendly staff .very help full.Rooms are comfertable enough.Nice sorrounding(Gardens).Would have prefered cleaning to take place daily.Electric cooker/Fridge freezer very useful for self catering.A super marker in less than 10 minuits walk. 20 minuits walk from the beach. Will be happy to go again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place to chill out with friends"
Positives: good price for the facilities offered, helpful staff, 10 min walk to the beach which is amazing and not very crowded. The poolside bar does amazing smoothies. Staff helped us in booking excursions which turned out to be the highlight of our trip. Supermarket close by. Located far from the busy touristy old town of albufiera negatives: the […] hotel is located quite far from Faro airport and unless you are renting a car airport transfers can be quite expensive. Duvets did not have covers on them which was a proper turn off. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a family, friendly staff, needs updating"
Lovely staff. They were very friendly and helpful. Fantastic location to the beach though out in the middle of no where a little. shuttle to the old town put on by the hotel for only 1.75 euro per person per way a great idea and definitely worth a visit. If you are looking for a lively, fun-filled holiday don't come here but perfect for families wanting […] some piece and quiet and a beautiful beach (though be prepared to walk at least 15 mins for the good parts).

"a dream come true"
this hotel was a dream compared to where we had previously been placed not by expedia i may add but previous hotel owner. they were very helpful, they reopened the kitchen to make us some food when we arrived very late at night.staff are exceptionally helpful and they all speak very good english. cleaning staff are also very nice. would go again. if […] its only downfall is its location from Alberfuria then that is not a problem the hotel runs a shuttle service there for 3.50 euros return or a taxi is 13.50 euros. if you walk to the top of the road the beach acess is to your left or right and if you walk a little to the left you will find more facilities, restaurants etc. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good though basic, but excellent for the price. Take soap & shampoo, kitchen products etc as these are not provided. Avoid the hotel restaurant as there are cheaper and better quality options closebyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap, cheerful and OK"
Basic, cheap, friendly staff. Good to use as a base, but you'll really need transport ideally. Don't expect too much, but for what we paid it was greatGenuine Expedia guest review
This must be the worst hotel I have ever been to. It had the quality of a going on 10-year shutted down hotel. The reception and restaurant was cute so thats were all the money's gone. The rooms and area around the hotel was simply horrific. Don't go there! Lots didnt work and it was nasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Reception people were very nice, friendly and helpful, one has a very good sense of humor as well.

Das Personal ist grandios. Jeder Wunsch wird einem von den Augen abgelesen, ich hatte meine Jacke in der Bar vergessen, sie wurde sichergestellt, es hat nichts gefehlt. Klasse!

"Echt fijne vakantie gehad voor bijna geen geld!"
Super vakantie hier gehad (samen met mijn vriend). Schoon, eerlijk.. heel dichtbij het strand (wel iets verder van de stad... Bayside zit niet midden in Albufeira-stad zeg maar) maar qua prijs-kwaliteit verhouding was het echt meer dan te verwachten voor ons. Ieder appartementje heeft een eigen balkonnetje, een kookplaat, een paar pannen, bestek, koelkast, […] enz.. De sfeer (wij gingen mid-April dus het is dan ook wat rustiger) was prettig, luchtig en simpel.. Jong en oud kunnen zich daar wel genieten. Ik zou hier wel makkelijk terugkomen. (PS-- er is wel een (oude) engelstalig Youtube filmpje ergens te vinden over dit hotel.. en een facebook pagina met veel foto's.. dus het is mogelijk om meer van de kamers/appartementen te zien dan alleen via expedia of Baysides eigen website...)

Very friendly helpfull staff, hotel is o.k., but it is very remote. Not in Albufeira, but 1,5 hour walk or 40 minutes on bycicle (you can rent them for 12 euro's a day) or 10 minutes by car away from Albufeira. It is good the hotel provides an every day shuttle service to Albufeira, but it beats me (and everyone else I asked including staff members) […] why it is already returning at 3 p.m. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely worth a stay, I'l be going back."
09/20/14 DjPlay2014 Manchester, England, United Kingdom
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were treated with up-most respect and kindness from all the staff. The room was basic but very clean & comfortable.The location is good, close to the beach were there are some good bars and restaurant's nothing touristy. The first night we went to a great bar along the beach where they had a full moon party amongst the rocks, their were lanterns all over the rocks which looked beautiful and some nice house music playing, so if you go during a full moon check it out you won't be disappointed. Anyway back to the Bayside, Good pool, good bar reasonable drink and food prices but again the best part about Bayside is the staff they can't do enough for you, Loue was great as were all the staff they work hard and you feel that they really enjoy making your holiday one to remember. I read some comments about this place prior to going about stag do's spoiling it however we had nothing to complain about. It's very very good value however if you want 5 star then you will have to pay 5 star prices somewhere else.
"honeymoon in a lovely little friendly hotel"
09/18/14 sineadmoss2004 Belfast, United Kingdom
We honeymooned in Bayside for 10 nights in september 2014 and from our check in by christina and luis were made to feel very welcomed as they upgraded our room which was an added bonus ..yes its a taxi ride into albuferia but in the local area plently of nice restaurants in a short walk high recommend the restaurant salgadomar on the main road , and the supermarket 5mins and the beautiful beach 10 mins .. the salgados lagoon and the sand dunes a must see just natural outstanding beauty . A big thanks to all the team at Bayside ..big john for the karoke session and jose on the bar for the big gins . myself and my husband had a lovely relaxing honeymoon in Portgual .
"Lovely Little Hotel"
09/16/14 Robert J
Stayed for 4 nights from the 13th till the 16th September. Great little gem. Very cheap and very basic. Would defo stay again. Only one slight problem we had during the holiday was we got given a room in the same block as a bunch of teenagers who on numerous occasions where making so much noise that it was impossible to sleep. I even phoned reception and told them. The noise stopped for the remainder of one night but the noise soon followed night after night. My advice for such a great little hotel is that you don't take group bookings for large party's esp children in there early 20s. Apart from that would stay again. Would love a reply from the hotel regarding the above situation but guess I won't be getting that. Many thanks Robert James

This is a very nice hotel, rooms were clean and food very nice. Prices were cheap and staff were very friendly and accomodating. Beach is only about ten minutes walk away. We had a 1 year old with us and though there wasn't much he could do the place was safe enough for him to explore a little. The only complaint I would have is that the location is isolated and apart from the beach there is nothing really in walking distance. A bus or taxi will have you in old Albufeira in about ten minutes. All in all a nice place with lovely staff and a relaxing place to unwind.
"Better and better !!"

Again what can we say another superb holiday which we make our own this hotel has a great team of staff from management through to the cleaners .if you want a relaxing holiday then it is certainly the place to be pool area never a problem getting a sunbed or shade if required the pool is extremely clean and well maintained .had the €12 buffet for the first time this year in the restaurant and would not hesitate to have again value for money anybody moaning about how quiet it is and nothing to do then this is not the place for you however there are plenty of eating places around within a 20minute walk no need for a taxi.Thankyou Luis,Big John,Josef,Sergio,Christina Zi and Fernanda for another lovely holiday see you all soon!!!!

09/13/14 Natasha R
Just had a fantastic week in this lovely hotel staff are very friendly and helpful ...although it's a little far out which don't really matter as you can get a taxi between 10 and 13 euros to the old town ....only one negative thing is that the towels get changed every 3 days ...bit other than that I would definitely go back .

"Ok for base"
09/06/14 atreides1 London
Just back from a week here, ate once first day/ evening we arrived. Basic but then you get what you pay for, did not like the fact that the towels were only changed every 3 rd day, bedding not changed the whole week, walls paper thin so you can hear the light switches going on and off,and noise most nights from others coming in with their children who they let run and scream about hall way, would ask for room at back of building not front if I came again,saying that as we only slept there as we spent our days on the beach as said before €10-15 to get into town, not much on your door step food wise nice little place 20min walk away called, "museu dos salgados" which is open from 6.30 till 12 not open on Sundays, beach very very crowded sun beds €15 for full day or €10 half day
"What a difference 2 years make. "
09/06/14 Marcio A London, England, United Kingdom
We last came to bayside salgados 2 years ago in a group of 2 families. At the time the new owners just had taken over the place and it needed work. On our return because this complex is places in a quiet area that is ideally placed. Supermarket is 5min and the beach is 10min away. For us was a no brainer to return. We was so pleased to see that there has been lots of improvements including wifi in the rooms(not great). The pool is nice and inviting. The members of staff remember us by name too so it felt really welcoming. I would suggest give it a try and enjoy. Perfect for families.
"Lovely honeymoon break"
09/03/14 Leigh-ann D Plymouth, United Kingdom
Me and my husband have just got back from a long weekend in Portugal for our honeymoon. The Bayside was a fantastic hotel. Yes it was slightly out of town, but a short taxi journey gets you to the Old town for around 11 euros. It was also nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the town, and also amongst the locals a bit more. The food was lovely, and the staff always helpful. We stayed in a studio apartment, the only downside was that we had noisy neighbours that would wake us up around 3am when they came back from town, and who didn't seem to care about anyone else who was in the apartment (thin walls!!) Apart from this, we cannot recommend the Bayside enough. The weather was gorgeous (31 degrees), the location great (10 min walk to the most beautiful beaches and also a lagoon with flamingos and turtles!) We had a perfect break and are keen to visit again as soon as possible.
