A favourite with families, this modern hotel is home to one of the biggest pools in the Algarve and puts 2 sandy beaches in easy reach.
With 3 swimming pools plus 2 just for kids, Alto da Colina is a sure-fire hit with water lovers. There are also 2 Blue Flag beaches in walking distance – Santa Eulalia beach, one of the best in the region, is just 15 minutes’ away.
The hotel is on a small hill in laid-back Balaia, but Albufeira is just a few minutes down the road in the hotel shuttle bus.

Generally a nice place ,rooms clean few basics missing like soap,shower gel etc ,food ok bit the same every day though breakfast all turns off at 10am so need to be down before 9.30 . Entertainment at night not the best the team try hard but for adults a bit boring, overall we had a good time but did go out down old town albefuia a few nights to break the evening up.More
Fourth visit and still fantastic.
We are just back a few days from a brilliant holiday in The Algarve holiday village. When we got there at 12pm our room wasn't quite ready had to wait just 20 mins or so. On arrival drinks are offered to the kids an Sangria for the adults. You are given beach towels in arrival which is a great bonus an cuts down on the amount of towels you need to bring. We were in a very big spacious two bed apartment which was nearly as big as our house,and a lovely big bowl of fruit was left on the table,which nearly kept us going for a week. The splash park is brilliant my two boys just love it. My younger boy did the football academy and really enjoy it. The two lads Adam an Sam were very good with him. When you pay your money you get a lovely jersey. On the Friday night he got a football certificate. The boys love the entertainment centre. The singing and dancing is superb they are a very talented bunch. I really enjoyed the "Chicago" number. There,s so much good things to say about the holiday village. The reception staff Daniel recognised us straight away and was always very helpful. Hope to return again next year weather was just perfect!!!!More
Plenty For The Kids to do
Stayed at this hotel on an all inclusive basis for a week in Sept 2016. Me, my husband and our 7 yr old son. The activities for the kids were fantastic. Plenty of slides and pools and the kids club was very appealing. The food was average, not much choice but we always found something we liked.The rooms were clean and ours was in need of a refurb but on the whole it was ok.More
Fantastic family holiday
Come to the end a 2 week self catering holiday with my husband, 2 girls and baby. What can I say? Love this place. Has everything for a highly successful holiday. We are in a 2 bed apartment and it is really comfortable. It is quite at the side of the hotel with a sea view. The kitchen is sufficient. All the facilities are great. Waterpark that is suitable for young children. A great selection of pools. A good indoor pool where swimming lessons are held by the best swimming teacher I have met. â¬36 for 5 lessons. My kids couldn't wait to go again and I saw a huge improvement in their swimming. There's a playground next door to the kids club which ran numerous activities to cover all interests. The Widgets shows each evening were a great hit. There are bars and restaurants on site. The Italian Giovannis is the only let down. Not worth it. Food was awful and over priced. Made us glad that we didn't go all inclusive. The location of the hotel is great. Close to a good beach which is a 10 minute walk. Good restaurants and supermarket is about 15 minutes walk. There are plenty of taxis at a good price to go to Guia shopping and Albuferia. There are also loads of daytrips to do. Overall, for a family holiday where the kids are amused all day long this is a great destination. Never heard I'm bored once in 2 weeks. We would definitely recommend this hotel and definitely come back again. More
