The old Town is a maze of tiny streets and whitewashed houses. Although the earthquake and associated tidal flood of Albufeira in 1755 destroyed most of the old town, there are still many buildings worth investigating whilst on Algarve holiday in Albufeira.

Eating out was easy, several restaurants just a short walk away. The heated pool is just the icing on the cake. It was our second visit and we hope to be back again next year. Thank you.

Everything was privided so made the week extremely enjoyable. It is well positioned and just a short walk to the beach and all surrounding shops etc . The pool and bar area were great. There was plenty of helpful information provided and the complex reception were helpful in booking taxis for excursions. All in all..I can't fault it..fabulous week and would happily revisit
