What everyone wants

The resort has everything for everybody,quiet spots for the thinkers,and lively spots for the doers. Everyone should take a walk along the 'strip',its an eye opener. The beaches are fantastic. A walk around the 'old town' is a must,to sample the wonderful food on offer at the many restaurants or just chill with a cold drink and watch the world go by.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Fun for all,with a climate to match

Great Holiday Place

Albufeira is a great place for all age groups! there is nightlife, but also good food to enjoy if you are looking for a nice romantic meal! there is also lots for the children, who will enjoy the train ride through the centre that goes down to the old town of Albufeira. The beaches are the best I have seen, beautiful sandy beaches small fishing villages, where a boat ride can take you all arround to admire the coastline.

The best thing about my stay was ...

Beaches, fish, weather.

One fo the best places I have been to

Albufeira is a lovely place and the old town is full of cobble streets with little shops, bars and places to eat. There is a square in the middle and the cobble streets just go in every direction from the square and seem to go on for miles. Fantastic place and would definately go back.

The best thing about my stay was ...

The old town
