We had 3 of these apartments as we were a family if 11 .the place was perfect for us as there was 3 separate Family and we all needed our own space .my 3 kids just loved the pool and we spent most of the time there .our host Veronika was brilliant and was so helpful.would highly recommend this place
Just back from a week in Albufeira, 3 bed accommodation was excellent all mod cons. Veronika our host was excellent, lots of local knowledge about where to eat and things to see. We stayed away from the old town - no really a family location ( stag/en parties etc.). Some fantastic beaches nearby - Praia do Carvalho is a must. Would definitely stay in same place again.
Went on 10/3 to 17/3, Friday to Friday...
It was a 45 min transfer from Faro to Alburferia, with a company called YellowFish, which was arranged by our host at our request..
Upon a arrival at the Villa we were met by our host Veronica who we found to be very nice and helpful for the full week we were in Alburferia.
The weather for full week was a little disappointing, 18 degrees most days it reached with a shower or two before Thursday was a full day of torrential rain.
The appartment itself was excellent, very clean had everything we needed as a family of 3 adults and 3 children.
The pool was also cleaned daily, but was freezing, the kids and myself found it hard to stay in it(took your breath away due to temperature).
Aldi and Lidl are in close walking distance up hill, Aldi is closer by 200 mtrs but Lidl has a far better selection.
The old Town square is situated down hill from appartment, not far at all just steep when walking back up with kids. A taxi is 4 back up from outside Hotel Baltumn.
Beers are roughly 2.50 and cocktails were 5 ... Restaurants were nice enough, had bar food in most places reasonable prices.
Tic Tac Bar was good fun in the square, karaoke bar. Vertigo bar had plenty of screens for matches which we went to on a couple of occasions.
Unfortunately wasn't that much to do with children at this time of year. Main thing was Zoo Lagos, that was a day out, 45 min transfer, 37 per head (entrance and private transfer).
Most events don't open until 28 March.
The beach is lovely, great size very clean (just cool, with this time of year).
All in all we had a nice holiday, would recommend Alburferia!
The Villa would be somewhere I would definitely stay again.
Value for money was exceptional.
Would love to go back during summer months..
