                                                                                                      5 of 5

My husband and 3 kids stayed here (6, 12 &14) for 2 weeks. Got everything you need. Wifi and Netflix on tv for those few tired nights in. Roof terrace lovely to sit and listen to the buzz and have a drink. Air con in living room but you need to leave it on and all the doors open to circulate....it Can get very warm and hard to sleep some nights. Was over 35° quite a few times. Quiet enough when we were there (30 June -14 July) great pool and plenty of sun loungers to go round. Helpful available staff on hand especially when my husband fell asleep when we were at the pool and locked us out! Its about 5-10 minutes down to the beach past eddys bar to the right and the old town and beyond to the left. Great wee bar Merlins just across from block with great music and cocktails, no food though but a good cafe just on left on down past bluebell bar for coffee, snacks. Plenty of convenience stores/markets but there was 5 of us So we took a taxi to Aldi for supplies for a fortnight and topped up every few days. Taxi rank beside apartment, say santa Anna church and they'll know! So many bars and restaurents we were spoilt for choice. We ate like kings. Prices good /reasonable. Shalom 1 & 2 highly recommend...all you can eat ribs and wings! Great for families. There are lively bars/clubs but we preferred the live music at the likes of vertigo and warehouse. Sleeps comfortably 4 ideal for small family, sofa was a little uncomfortable to sleep on for my daughter for 2 weeks. We had a fantastic fortnight here i really can't fault it. Was a perfect base for us to explore...zoo marine, boat tours, marina and surrounding areas. We didn't spend that much time in it to be honest! Came in from pool/beach, shower and headed out again. The town is buzzing. Great atmosphere. The beach you will pay €5 for a sun lounger and €5 for umbrellas but there was one in apartment we used and bought a big blanket of one of the beach sellers instead. life guards at beach. There are some buckets and spades above washing machine. We bought sugar, olive oil, teabags and salt etc to cook a few nights and a jug for sangria. We didn't have any negative experiences..some meals better than others but apart from that the whole 2 week holiday was brill. I will definitely be back to Albufeira and if you want somewhere close the old town that it is guaranteed clean/secure/equipped then i recommend here. You will not be disappointed!
