"Fair price for what you get"
A nice place for the right price. A little further than I would have likes from the shops and beach. Wifi only available in the lobby. Which I knew from other reviews, and thought it didn't matter. After all we are on vacation right? But when it's rainy , cool and your kid is feeling under the weather it would have been nice to stay in our room to use the internet. But really that's the only "negative".

"Fantastic holiday!"
The location couldn't have been better, 10 minute walk to the beach, 15 minutes to the old town and strip respectively. The food was delicious and plentiful. Will 100% be recommending this hotel to friends and family and despite not liking to return to the same place again would happily consider it on this occasion.

"Lovely hotel!"
Stayed at the Luna miramar hotel for 8 nights during end of August. Was very worried as was staying with mother and two teen girls and reviews the hotel had received were not that great and appeared to not cater for families and young girls. How wrong was I, it's an excellent hotel, very family friendly, close to all amenities. Beautiful beach 10 mins away, supermarket right outside hotel, and about 15 mins to old town. Staff are more than helpful and the housekeepers work extremely hard and the cleanliness of the hotel is commendable. Please do not let negative reviews put you off staying at this lovely hotel. Will be returning.

Nous avons passé un agréable sejour dans cet appart hotel. Les chambres sont spacieuses et bien équipées. Petit bémol sur l'accès au spa, où le hammam était fermé, et les de la salle fitness horaires assez restreints. le personnel est très sympathique, la restauration très bonne. La proximité du supermarché est très pratique. Un peu distant du centre ville, la location d'un vélo ou scooter est un vrai plus.

"Max 3 stjärnor"
Rummen stora och rymliga, balkongen OK dock fanns bara 2 plaststolar till 4 personer! Sängarna något för hårda för vår smak. Gammal utrustning i köket, kylskåpet i dåligt skick då dörren var sned och luckan till frysfacket saknades, nedre "flaskhylla" trasig och tålde inga stora flaskor. DÅLIG DISCIPLIN I ATT FÖLJA REGLERNA VID POOLEN! I PRINCIP VAR ALLA SOLSÄNGAR BOKADE REDAN KL 08.00 FASTÄN POOLEN ÖPPNADE 09.00 - INGEN ÅTGÄRD FRÅN LEDNINGEN TROTS TILLSÄGNING (SOLSÄNGARNA RÄCKTE INTE TILL ALLA!!!!) Dock var närheten till köpcenter och affärer riktigt bra, ca 1km till Albufeira centrum (restauranger) och stranden helt OK.

"Sentralt"
Et helt greit hotell. Brukte ca 15 min å hå til stranden og 15 min å gå til bargaten. Fryseren i kjøleskapet var ødelagt, og kjøleskapet duret veldig mye. En del støv og dritter i kroker og kriker og under sengene. Rommet var forsåvidt greit, men ganske slitent interiør. Vanskene var omtrent umulig å skru helt av og det var dusj i badekar som er etter min smak veldig ekkelt. Men det var hyggelig personale og de hadde også privat buss som kjørte flere ganger til og fra stranden helt gratis! :)

"Elendig hotell, styr unna!!"
Hotellet fortjener IKKE 4 stjerner, lukta skikkelig vondt i korridoren og rommet var så sliten og sengene er så dårlig at jeg og dama mi fikk vondt i ryggen å ligge der. Fjernkontrollen til tv'n på rommet virker bare på volum knappen, ellers måtte du gå helt bort til tv for å skifte kanal, ikke fikk vi skrudd av tv, måtte dra ut kontakten. Tidlig på morgenen så blir du vekket av musikk og en som skriker i mikrofon ved bassenget for å få med folk på morgen gymnastikk i bassenget der, mye støy hvis du har vindu mot bassenget. Vi klaget og fikk på samme dag ett nytt rom, med litt bedre senger men rommet var like sliten der også, dusj batteriet hang løst ut fra veggen så du ser rett inn i 2 hull i veggen, skal bli morro når vannet trekker seg inn bak veggen der og danner sopp og råteskader! Fjernkontrollen på dette rommet virket ikke i det hele tatt, enda det lyste når du trykket. Vil IKKE anbefale dette hotellet her, det er det verste jeg har sett.

"Mycket nöjd med hotellet"
Först vill jag säga att jag läste recensionerna innan jag reste och blev lite orolig. När vi väl var framme i hotellet såg vi inget av det dåliga som jag läst om. Vi fick ett rum på fjärde våningen och hade en underbar vy över hotellet, polen, havet och växtriket mellan hotellet och havet. Vi fick ett rum som uppfyllde våra krav och det enda dåliga jag kan säga var att dusch kranarna var lite slitna och gamla. När man går omkring i Albufeira inser man ganska snabbt att alla hus och hotell inte är moderna vilket vi tycker är en bra grej, bevarad kultur. Vårt rum var städat och rent, städning varje dag i kombination med byten av handdukar och påfyllning av förbruknings artiklar i badrum. Servicen är otroligt bra och alla är väldigt trevliga. Polen är fin och ren, bra helt enkelt. Maten kan vi inte uttala oss om för vi åt ute alla dagar. Självklart hade vi ac i rummet. Köpcentrum i närheten och läget för hotellet kunde inte blivit bättre. Det känns helt enkelt som om hotellet i helhet har skärpt sig och blivit bättre med tanka på tidigare recensioner. Definitivt 4 stjärnigt hotell i Albufeira.

"Great stay"
05/02/16 Lesley K Carrigaline
The hotel has a lovely, open, inviting reception area. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely and spacious, cleaned every day. The pool area perhaps was a bit small for busy times. The hotel was very reasonably priced and was a great Base for both old and new town. Great supermarket up the road from hotel. I would highly recommend the Luna Miramar

"Loved this hotel!"
04/21/16 Eilidh S
Me and my partner stayed here for one week all inclusive and we really enjoyed it. It was lovely inside, it was very open, airy and clean. There was a bar upstairs which we didn't realise was there for a few days but we liked it when we found it and enjoyed having the pool table there too. Our room was cleaned regularly and we had no problem getting sunbeds. The first day we arrived the food was average and the second night of our stay there was maybe a new manager as there was a man with a suit that changed the whole restaurant and it was like a completely new place. The man was there day and night and the presentation and quality of the food was immaculate for the rest of the week. We didn't wait in to see entertainment so can't comment on that but it was definitely a family friendly hotel. The location of the hotel is good as it is only a 15 minute walk to the beach and is beside a shopping mall. It's situated in between the old and new town so was good to go and have a few nights out in both different parts. Our room was big, had a living area and a kitchen with a fridge and cooking facilities and had a balcony looking out on to the pool which was lovely. Our room was cleaned regularly and the lovely maids changed our towels and bedding regularly too. Would definitely come back to this hotel we really enjoyed our stay.

reception is 4 star but beyond this it seams to go downhill. The room was ok but we had 4 hangers and for the first 3 days we spent having the fridge changed as it froze all our food, the second one they gave us we bought more food and the same thing happened they gave us another one which kept things cool but was very old and rusty. The balcony faces the opposite wing so felt like everyone was looking at each other. Staff ok but don't think will go again as all we got was a small sorry.

04/02/16 Sandlew00d Charlottetown, Canada
Hotel has a great lobby but not very good seating in it. Wi Fi is only available in lobby and is sporatic. There were no coffee pots in the room. The room was a nice size and clean. Great staff from reception to cleaners. There is a lobby bar but it does not appear to open very often. There was entertainment there one night. Entertainment which is nightly (when it happens) is in the area adjacent to the dining room. There was bingo, quizes etc but nothing that interested us and it was difficult to find out what was happening and when. The restaurant was okay. We were told that you did not make reservations but when we arrived about 10 minutes after it opened, we found that all the tables along the window had been reserved. The long term guests appear to get special treatment. We were told to go in and find a table...the food it over there and the waitress. The other guests looked at us like we did not belong there. The waitress paid special attention to their needs and delivered food to their tables from the buffet. We had to go looking for someone to pay the bill. Food was standard...We just ate there once as there were better options nearby with equal or better prices. However, the staff in reception were exceptional...we arrived late and left early. They also gladly provided information on the area and booked activities for us.

"Clean but there are better places out there"

We were there for 7 nights in a one bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. The balcony was really tiny but we had a view of the pool and could see the ocean. 7 nights was more than enough - wifi only available in the lobby, TV only had one english channel, the couch in the living room was like sitting on a fabric covered cement block. We laid down on it rather than sat up because it was not comfortable. It's in a convenient location (right behind the mall/grocery store) and a reasonably short walk to Old Town or the Strip. The mini train (to/from the Strip) and hop on hop off bus are close as well. One drawback is there is no direct route to the beach because the hotel's on a dead end street, off another dead end street and there's a massive ravine behind it (Google Maps calls it a park). To go anywhere you have to go to the top of a steep hill, turn left then go to the top of another steep. If you want to go to the beach you then need to turn right or left to find a road to go back down the hill toward the water. Mid way up that second hill is an entrance to the mall. We'd go in that door then up the escalator to cut the climb in half. The place was really clean although the room could use some fresh paint and more comfortable furnishings. The pool could also use an update. Front desk staff were awesome! We were greeted warmly every time and every question we had was answered. We arrived early morning and they arranged to have our room cleaned within half an hour so we could move in. We used the kitchen to make breakfast however it would have been nice if dish soap and a cloth were supplied. Next time I would go for a place with more direct beach access.

"Excellent value for money"
01/06/16 Mark C Glasgow, United Kingdom
A great hotel considering how little we paid for an all inclusive stay. The reception and rooms had evidently gone under recent renovation and were modern and clean. Bedroom was much nicer than most standard resort hotels and the kitchenette was well equipped for home cooking during your stay. Our room also had a huge lounge area which would be ideal for a family or group of 4, using the sofa-bed (not sure if all rooms had a lounge of this size). The pool area was clean with new sun loungers (as opposed to the white plastic style often found in Portugal/Spain). Some other reviews have mentioned a lack of loungers but we never struggled to find two together (appreciate this may not be the case during the busy summer period). Poolside bar offering complimentary drinks for all-inclusive guests was always staffed and we didn't need to wait long to be served. The hot food (hot dogs, burgers, chips) on offer from this bar was also served very quickly and, although average quality as to be expected from a drinks bar, we ate this each day. The main restaurant operates as a buffet, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. We didn't eat in the hotel for dinner but the breakfast and lunch was of sufficient quality - standard options such as chips, burgers alongside pasta and pork options. Location was well placed with a 10 min walk in either direction taking you to the Albufeira Old Town or the strip respectively. Would thoroughly recommend the Old Town which has a wide variety of great quality restaurants in a lovely setting. The hotel receptionist offered great dining advice as well as a map with directions.

The Lunar miramar is an aparthotel which turned out to be a boon for fussy eaters like my wife who turn thier nose up at most hotel food , so being across the road from a small shopping centre we could buy what we liked and cook in the apartment kitchen, which was well kitted out for the casual cook, the hotel is very clean and the staff were very helpful at all times, there is an outdoor pool but being December its to cold to use but the small indoor pool was very useful for a quick dip.the only downside of this hotel is as I've already mentioned that its next to the shopping centre which gets deliveries first thing in the morning,so at one side of the complex you have artics trying to do a uturn outside your door while the fridge on the trailer roars its head off and the guys struggling to turn in a tight residential street, which leads me to the problem of parking, it looks plentifully but in busy times when there are a lot of semi locals who have driven to the hotel you will struggle to park if you've hired a car, without it being scrapped by a delivery truck. All in all a good hotel, helpful staff, very bright and clean but the thought of my 1000 euro excess on my hire car for damage kept me awake in the early morning.

"Hotel Marie Celeste"
01/05/16 Rayad45 London, United Kingdom
The title I have given this hotel review arrives from the fact that for two weeks of our three week stay over Christmas and the New Year at this hotel, there were only about 10 people resident there, for the most part it was akin to a ghost town. There were some timeshare residents there who came and went after the weekends, but they mostly did not use the hotel facilities. On arrival at 12.00 hrs we had our what seems to be the usual wait for our rooms to be cleaned for an hour or so although the hotel was empty? The Reception staff were excellent and were very pleasant to us and very helpful throughout our stay. We were allocated adjacent rooms 318 and 319 which were very spacious and very well equipped complete with a studio kitchen. The beds were large and comfortable and both rooms had balconies which were in the sun for most of the day. The room service was excellent and the rooms were kept very clean with used towels and dishcloths changed every day by very friendly cleaning ladies. The bathrooms would benefit from some refurbishment, the bath in room 319 was very badly discoloured and worn and was not used throughout our stay. The patio door lock in room 318 failed and was reported and repaired 4 times before failing again, after which we ignored it and left the door open? On every occasion after reporting it at Reception a repair man arrived very promptly. The major weakness with this hotel was the catering and food, it was no way up to a four star standard. The food was presented buffet style more appropriate to a works or school dinners canteen. There was no labelling of the food, which was mostly of Portuguese style cooking, so you had no idea what you were eating? The food provided was bland, tasteless and mostly always cold, asking the waiters or cooks what the food was, prompted a reply such as 'Its fish' or 'Its meat'. Breakfasts were repetitious, mainly cold and poorly cooked with most hot food drowned in oil and dried out scrambled eggs if you were not there early. Dining room information was also sadly lacking, during our first week there we poured ourselves a glass of wine from containers which were located within the general buffet items believing it to be included and because not being informed otherwise. We were very surprised when a waiter chased us out of the dining room as we were leaving asking for payment for the wine. Price lists for the bar were only supplied towards the end of our stay, during the period before they were provided, we had been charged anything from 2.20 to 2.90 Euros for the same large beers from the same pump? Entertainment during our stay was non existent except for a Gala Night on New Years Eve complete with a disco for which we paid our tour company £44.00 in the UK. The food provided was the same usual bland unlabelled offering, we received a glass of wine upon arrival, a bottle of cheap white wine with our meal, and a cheap bottle of sparkling wine to make our toasts. Not very good value I think you will agree, we tried to cancel it early in our stay after we had sampled the usual dining room fayre, but our courier said she was unable to do so as the tour company would not agree. In conclusion the hotel would be excellent for a Room Only or B & B stay but on HB or AI, no thanks, not for me, there are plenty of far better four star hotels in Albufeira.
