Great Location right on the beach – The Sol E Mar, Albufeira

1. Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira – Location

The Sol E Mar is located in Albufeira. This is one of the main resorts in the Algarve.

The hotel itself is located beside the sea in a great location for exploring the old town and beach areas alike.

2. Getting to the Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira

Fo our stay we booked a transfer from Faro airport direct to the hotel. We were planning a resort based stay rather than exploring the area so we weren’t planning on using or hiring a car. As such a private transfer seemed the best option for us getting to the hotel.

It took around 30 minutes. It was nice to get our first introduction to the area on the way from the airport and it was extremely easy and convenient.

The driver was waiting for us so there was no delay when we arrived at Faro Airport and it was a stress free way to get to the hotel given this was our first trip to the area.

The Sol E Mar Albufeira is 44km or 27 miles West of Faro airport.
