Positive Reviews

Gorgeous beach

If you can imagine waking up and stepping out of your front door with direct access to the beach, then Suites Alba Resort & Spa will be the perfect location. Guests love the beautiful coastline, while also being able to enjoy horse-riding and beach volley ball.

Stunning views

Whether you end up with an ocean view, or a cliff view, guests find it difficult to leave once they are relaxing on their private balcony after diner, with a glass of wine, or a refreshing beverage. Many guests book their next vacation before the present one is even over.

Unbelievably peaceful

Guests have described the surroundings as tranquil and serene, while visitors say the Algarve vegetation makes you feel like you are in paradise. As far as the spa centre goes, this is one treat many guests make sure they don't miss.

Negative Reviews

You should have your own vehicle

When you stay at Suites Alba Resort & Spa you should try to have your own vehicle with you, as taxis are a bit expensive according to guests. There are no restaurants within walking distance, and although the food is great here, you might want to try something different.

Awkward entrance

Some travellers have complained about the really narrow pathway leading up to the hotel. There is nothing management can do about the area because this is a nature conservation area, and can't be changed. Regardless, most guests report enjoying a great vacation once they are there.

Poor Wi-Fi signal

If you rely on a good connection to conduct your business, or to stay connected to family and friends back home, you should think about bringing your own Internet cable with. The Wi-Fi has been reported as being a little intermittent at times.
