    We have stayed ay LFDO on over 10 accassions now and have always had nothing but praise for the hotel. We eat breakfast and lunch on-site and alwas enjoy a drink at the bar on most evenings. This time though, on one accassio after spending €25 at lunch my wife went to the shop to purchase sun cream. On her return, she returned to the pool area eating a 20 cent pastry. The gentleman who had served us lunch arrived at our sun beds and chastised my wife for bringing her own food to the pool area, this after us just finishing lunch and leaving a €4 tip. We appreciate local rules, but we are regulars in the hotel, this was a genuine mistake and we had just had our lunch at the poolside restaurant. This was most embarasssing for us as everyone in close proximity heard the conversation. As a couple who spend a lot of money in this hotel annually I felt we should be the last couple to be treated such as this and we will not be returing or recommending LFDA to anyone again. Many groups of people around the pool seemed to be surviving for full days without eating in the restaurant or purchasing drinks at the poolside bar !!!

    The location near strip but quiet and also very close to sea and beach

    though there was clean towels and loo rolls put in to room the beds were only made up twice in the week we were there. even though there was nothing majorly wrong i dont think i would stay there again a bit dated in the rooms and kitchen area.

    Great

    i found the reception staff very helpfull for directions and translation. The internet in the lobby area was very helpfull to keep in touch with work.

    i found that two single beds put together was very uncomfortable for my wife and i. the resturaunt was very expensive compared to others. i paid 3€ for 1lt of water and 65cent for 5lt in the supermarket.

    Perfect

    Good location in between lively area for younger people (the strip) and lots of restauratns if you wanted a quieter evening (the parents). travelled with teenagers age 17 and 18.

    The only complaint I would have is that the room was probably more suitabe for family with younger children as to get to the bathroom you had to go through the main bedroom. Ok if group of same sex party but if mixed not quite so convenient. It was Ok though.

    The apartment block is located in a nice urban area, close to some splendid beaches which are within easy walking distance and is near to Albufiera which is about a 45 minute walk from the apartment. The strip – which is a road containing lots of bars and entertainment - is a 10 minute walk for those so inclined. A land train runs from the strip down to the edge of Albufiera old town which is then accessed via pedestrian escalators taking you up and down the steep hill. We stayed at the apartments from the 20th to 27th December and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday – aided and abetted by some unusually warm and sunny weather for the time of year. We hired a car at the airport so were able to travel to other places along this splendid coastline and drive inland to see the scenery and quaint villages. The roads were quiet (it was winter) and we took our sat-nav with us which made driving and navigating about so much easier. Our apartment had a hallway leading to a living area with a small kitchen at one end. The kitchen had a small hob, a microwave, a fridge, electric kettle, coffee maker and toaster with adequate crockery, cutlery and utensils to cater for 6. Unfortunately, there is only one power socket above the work top in the kitchen. The living area had a dining table with 4 chairs and two sofa beds to sleep 4 persons. There were no other chairs and the sofa beds were not comfortable to sit on and relax. The TV’s in the living room and bedroom were old fashioned with tiny screens and had very poor indistinct sound quality. BBC1, BBC2 and ITV1 were the British channels available. There is no DVD or sound system. A bathroom and bedroom led off the hallway. The bedroom had twin beds put together to make a king size bed which were on the firm side – but we like firm beds. There was plenty of wardrobe space. Our bathroom was quite big with a shower above the bath and plenty of hot water 24/7. Everything worked fine but it was tired and in need of refurbishment.

    very friendly helpful staff and excellent accommodation.

    Only that you could not bring your own drinking water to pool area.

    Good location with bus stop outside. Well equiped kitchen and beds made everyday. Spacious apartment.

    Rain water slow to drain from balcony due to drain being in wrong place, only two chairs although this apartment slept four this is very poor as they are only cheap.
