We certainly had a great holiday. In addition to 2 weeks SUN we have enjoyed the park. We had a three-room apartment posted. This meant 2 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher, and 4 balconies. Large swimming pool with enough COTS (parasols available on request at reception). Each day the beds were formatted and apartment cleaned. 24-hour front desk open and wifi available. The boulevard at the haven is a great mockery. Restaurants are pretty expensive. There is a nice super market behind the cemetery towards the old town. There is a free minibus of the reception for a larger supermarket it is approximately 20 minutes walk to the old cosy Centre. Numerous restaurants and shops. We have (and we are Dutch for) eaten at Shalom 1 and 2. Tasty pancakes and SUPER spare ribs. Did a number of excursions from which the jeep safari was a Topper. Ron
we were there for the first time and it was great with a beautiful big swimming pool and the rooms were cleaned regularly. further equipped with a fridge, a toaster, freezer big washing machine, dishwasher, lemon Squeezer, coffee maker, tv, arco. only the bed was a little too hard but fortunately not a sunk-in bed. and for the small of us there was a nice big grass field for the apartment. and albufeira is to walk through the beautiful harbour. and people who are pissing this is nothing and that is nothing that set too many demands we are different apartments but these were the most beautiful and in tenerife mary lanza. oh yes, and for the messages with the bus from the hotel to the lidl advance rent a car is recommended ...and the food is cheaper than at the bottom of the harbour by boat in albufeira itself. the rocks to view is also very beautiful that one can books in the port. hello joop jolanda and jort..
We stayed from 27/5 to 6/6 and it was indeed a big apartment and swimming pool and much luxury in the apartment such as a dishwasher, washing machine, oven and magnatron, buuuuuuuuuut there were also many downsides: the cleaning is not good, they drag a mop over the floor and the same mop is also swept across tables and the bathroom, really disgusting. The water in the swimming pool was really cold, the place was indeed very thin-walled and you could hear the neighbours' beds creak, you must pay attention if you have booked a two-room apartment, because there are also apartments that have no balcony, just a sort of small gate where you can just about stand on. We therefore argued for 3 days with the reception for a different apartment and succeeded after 3 days. The balconies are not suitable for children.
It is also good know that the entire holiday you will need a car, because you won't find any supermarkets and/or cosy restaurants there. The place is desolate when it comes to that, there are empty premises everywhere except for the small bakery and the souvenir shop that also sells water and a bit of food for much
too steep prices, by car it is 5 minutes to drive to Lidl and Modelo supermarkets.
In July we stayed in this beautiful and colourful apartment complex, for 11 days. The apartments were big and luxurous. The pool was big enough and the personnel at the reception was very friendly and helpful. The people nextdoor were a bit noisy though (Portuguese family). But it was a super complex though!
We came home today. We stayed there with 3 young kids. A big pool, big apartments. Apartments weren't all the same, qua interior. They had small walls and didn't get cleaned well. They did make the beds though. There was no entertainment. Taking a taxi was a big disaster (max 4 persons/run). When we arrived there, we saw enormous queues back to the hotel (especially around 22:00 - 23:00/00:00). I recommend taking the bus (till 23:00). For the clubbers the bus wasn't an option ofcourse. Clubbing in the strip was nice if you like British, Irish, beer and youngsters. If you like the Portuguese people more (and the 30+ people) then I recommend going to Liberto's Bar after 00:30. A trendy disco was Capitula V after 03:00 - 08:00 in the morning.
A lovely complex, very cosy with all those colours. The apartment had a nice interior and a lovely big pool. Our apartment got cleaned wel. We kind of missed having a big supermarket in the neighbourhood. A car was needed there. You could use that car to reach other lovely beaches of the Algarve. I really recommend it.
