    language Review by a Visitor

    My boyfriend and i (21 & 20) have just returned from a fabulous holiday staying at the torre velha. After reading some of the reviews i have to admit i was a little concerned about the hotel but when we arrived i was pleasantly surprised and realised that there was no need to worry. the staff at the hotel are some of the most friendly people i have ever met and will go out of there way to do anything for you. I cannot fault one member of staff in anyway; they made us feel very welcome and helped us out in every way. the rooms are very clean and although they are basic they were perfect for us. (ignore the comments about there only being single beds in the rooms, we asked for a double bed when we booked and that’s what we got. ) the pool area is beautiful and was very quiet whilst we were there which was lovely and meant we had to pool to ourselves practically every day!! although the pool is only 1.2m deep it is perfect to help you cool down in the boiling hot weather. the beach is only 5 minutes down the road and is really pretty. There is a bar on the beach side where you can get drinks and food to take on the beach or eat in the bar. there is a cash machine and a small supermarket a couple of minutes down the road at the hapimag hotel which is open to anyone. the food in the torre velha is gorgeous, with a wide range of meals for very cheap prices. although we were booked in under bed and breakfast we never actually made breakfast! from what we heard the breakfast was basic but after reading reviews for other hotels in the algarve this seems to be the case throughout the area. if you fancy something a bit more substantial then we would definitely recommend scooby’s pool bar which is about 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. You can get a full english and plenty of other meals and snacks that are all a reasonable price. You can also use their pool and sun beds - and play krazy-golf!! nthe hotel is in a quiet location and although i wouldn’t advice it for families it is absolutely perfect for couples or anyone else who wants a place to take it easy and not be surrounded by noise 24/7. at night you can get a taxi either to the old town, where there are some amazing restaurants and really trendy bars, or to the strip where there are also restaurants but is more popular with big groups and in a my opinion a little bit like blackpool but warmer! we preferred the old town and would recommend the bravissimo steak house and the alibaba chinese,
