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

Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira – 4 Night Stay

We chose the Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira because we liked the location – right on the beach with easy access into Albufeira itself.

Given we were not hiring a car it made it easy to explore what we wanted to from the hotel and we enjoyed exploring each day on foot, although we did spend plenty of time just relaxing at the hotel too!

Albufeira is within easy reach of Faro airport, being just 30 minutes away, and it is one of the main resorts of the Algarve.

Getting to the Hotel Sol E Mar Albufeira

For ease and convenience 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.

Arriving at the Hotel Sol E Mar, Albufeira
