We stayed in Alfagar II aparthotel and loved every minute of it. The room and the facilities in the room were way beyond our expectations. Kitchen equipment was in A1 condition, some unused. The TV was an LCD and had a variety of channels including 15 or so UK Freeview channels. The village complex that we were on had a great atmosphere and was very spacious with lots amenities. The complex has loads of pools interspersed between the various apartment blocks. The indoor pool is very good. The are some lovely walks down to a great little beach. You should rent a car to see more of the area and to do a trip to more economical supermarkets. Local taxis are really cheap 3 Euros to the strip and 5.50 Euros to the old town.
All of the staff on the resort are excellent. They all care about making your stay perfect.
This will probably be our annual family holiday destination, year after year. Simply stunning!
Albuferia was the best holiday we have been on in the past 3 years,Loved all the shops in the old town the puppet show on in the square was amazing all the children watching really enjoyed it.we had a beautiful meal in the Shalom grilled pancake and rib house in the old town well worth the money.We stayed in Pateo villiage Apartments were Excellent highly recomend it for families.The local people were very friendly and helpful.looking forward to returning in the future.The beach is totally amazing ,
Stayed at the Sao Raphael Atlantico hotel in the Algarve from the 12th of April to the 19th of April. This hotel has beautiful grounds and access to a gorgeous beach. The rooms were large and spacious. The hotel had five star facilities however I would not rate it as a five star hotel for the following reasons: I have never stayed in a five star hotel before where I have had to pay for the tiny cartons of milk in my room and for water; being expected to pay for use of the spa I.e The sauna, jacuzzi and hot tub;the food was not of five star quality; the decor was depressing (brown walls and carpets everywhere) and the hotel dining room reminded me of a college refectory.Albufiera old town offers very little for the shopper - caters more for stag and hen parties and noCharm about it. The new town is even more depressing. The marina has many boarded up retail units although you can find cheaper meals and drinks in a variety of cares there. The surrounding area however is run down and depressing with evidence of the depressed economy everywhere ...buildings abandoned, basic repairs to walkways not done. We went on a Thompson excursion to Loule and found that depressing too with shops full of what could only be called tat. The hotel is meant to be exclusively for adults although there were children and families there when we stayed. Facilities described in the Thompson brochure were not accurate e.g. The bar and restaurant on the beach was closed and the piano bar had no piano and was not always open. The fact that the weather was not wonderful meant that there was very little to do in and around the hotel. Would not revisit this resort or hotel and can not understand why Thompson have given this five stars.
Casa Luna was very difficult to get to, once there impossible to beat.
What a lovely small spotless hotel. Everyboby was very friendly, the food was very good and very reasonable.
Trust is a big part of their day to day running of the hotel. there is an honesty book where you help yourself to drinks or a game of pool and enter it in a book with your room number, this then is added to your bill at the end of your stay. Brilliant idea and at the end of our stay was not shocked at what we had spent - excellent.
Antonio the owner is a lovely man and comes along in the mornings and chats to you. He has a gorgeous little yorkie dog called Junior.
Carol and Paulo manning the reception were very friendly as were all the staff.
the entertainment on the Friday night was hillarious and our friends and us could not stop laughing and crying - brilliant.
Overall a brilliant relaxing holiday.
