About the property

Lovely one bedroom apartment in great location with beautiful surroundings.

If you are looking for a relaxing, but fun-filled holiday then Apartment 123 in the Clube Albufeira condominium is the perfect choice. A comfortable one-bedroomed apartment with spacious living, dining room and a terrace with a great view over green, landscaped gardens awaits you. It is quiet and private, yet within two minutes walk from a fantastic family pool with restaurant/bar. If that is not enough, the complex contains two other great pools and restaurants for your enjoyment, so you will be spoilt for choice. Ideal for couples or families, Apartment 123 offers the ideal combination of relaxation and fun activities.

The apartment is situated near to the reception area of Clube Albufeira from where you can book trips, hire cars or book a taxi. It is situated on the first floor and is not overlooked for that important sense of privacy.

Inside it contains a compact fitted kitchen, a spacious living and dining area complete with double sofa bed, woodburning fireplace and cable tv. Through french windows there is a large terrace with table and chairs for family dining. Located in a cosy alcove are bunkbeds, ideal for the children, and there is a family bathroom and double bedroom too. Overall the apartment can sleep six people and is fully equipped for six. A short two minute walk away lies a well designed pool area complete with children's pool. During the summer months there are water activities available several times a week for those who enjoy keeping fit. A lovely restaurant sits next to the bar, so it is only a brief stroll to a table for lunch or a romantic dinner.

Barbeques take place during the summer complete with live entertainment and are a great way of enjoying a beautiful summer evening. Two further pools are available to residents of Clube Albufeira and a new restaurant has recently opened serving more traditional Portuguese food called Casa Azul, or The Blue House.

The attractive and lively town of Albufeira lies about 1 mile away and you can walk the distance in about 20 minutes if you are still feeling energetic. Otherwise, there is a free shuttle bus available twice a day, local buses run from outside the complex about every half hour and taxis are reasonable at about 5 Euros per trip. For those wishing to participate in sporting activities there is a tennis court available for use in the neighbouring campsite and a range of golf courses nearby. Fisherman's beach in Albufeira is about 1.5 miles away, but there are some wonderful beaches within easy reach, for example Sao Raphael or Gale.

The colourful Marina is also worth a look.

About Mrs Rachel Duarte

I am an English teacher and my husband a chef and we now live in the north east of England, however we have spent two years living in Portugal with our children as my husband is Portuguese. We love the Algarve and this area in particular as it has so much to offer and enjoy all our holiday in the apartment.

Mrs Rachel Duarte purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mrs Rachel Duarte chose Albufeira

We chose this property as it offered us the space we needed within a beautiful complex and yet whilst maintaining some privacy. We have not regretted making the purchase.

What makes this apartment unique

We are in a convenient location and yet not overlooked or with any noisy neighbours. We have extra sleeping space with the built in bunk-beds and a sunny veranda to enjoy a quiet glass of wine or laze around with a good book. Outside there are a choice of pools and restaurants without even having to leave the complex. However if you do get bored it is just an easy hop into Albufeira. We especially like the old town!

Darren and Joanne stayed AUGUST 2018

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay, apartment was clean, tidy and adequate for our needs. Minor maintenance on doors and cupboards required but nothing major and was like home from home. Pool and reception very close and handy. Only 5 euros into town, could walk if wish to. Overall we would definitely visit again.

Lovely apartment on a great complex with nice pool and great views.

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in Portugal and the price we paid was very competitive compared to other properties in the local area, there were a couple of minor issues we experienced on our trip hence why I did not give a 5* review. When we arrived at the hotel we were extremely tired after travelling (arrived at 1am) the receptionist had no idea who we were and didn't find our booking, we then had to use the reception pc to print off the confirmation (which was extremely slow) I felt we shouldn't have to do this given the fact the information should've been ready for them, so wasn't a great first impression. The apartment was clean and we had lovely green views from the balcony and was lovely chilling out with a drink in the sun, and a short walk away to the gorgeous swimming pool. A couple of the lights and plugs did not work so was limited. I came across a problem with the toilet not flushing, to find that the water input had been turned off, when turning the water on to fill the cistern there was a leak from the pipe. I did let Rachel know straight away about this issue and she did assure me she would sort this problem when she got there when we checked out as she was staying there. (This was not a massive issue and I did advise Rachel it wasn't causing any major concern) the bathroom light was rather dim so quite dark at times and some minor stains in the bath tub and also the sink. The mouth rinsing glasses were also not clean when we were there. We did sleep well however, and the apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday, albeit basic, but overall a lovely place to stay and perfect for couples/small family. I have noted these issues based on the experience I had, however it did not cause any major issues, and if these were rectified, I would definately give a 5* rating in the future. This is a place I would recommend to people and would definitely return in the future. Only downside I would say is that it is quite a way to the main strip and I wasn't aware of how far it was (my mistake!) so if you do stay here and want nights out on the strip you will need to get taxis often which is between 8-11€ each way. The old town is lovely and vibrant with plenty going on and is about 20 min walk from the apartment, also the beach. Lovely places to dine and drink on the seafront with gorgeous views. I would definitely return to Portugal again, however these minor issues let down the apartment's full potential. Overall, great holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and in response to the issues, unfortunately we were let down by the Reception, as I had indeed contacted them about the stay, but they were inundated with emails and did not respond in a timely fashion. Regarding the toilet, it has now been fully rectified, but thank you for keeping us informed and for being so understanding. The location is indeed slightly away from the main strip, but that is why we like it so much as it has a calm, relaxing atmosphere, yet is within easy reach distance of all the amenities around Albufeira.

Holiday at Clube Albufeira

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 3 weeks last year and had a great time. The apartment is basic but spotless and has everthing you need for a holiday . We have 3 children aged 4, 9 and 11 at the time and they spent most of time at pool - as it is only 2 mins away.

I would recommend this apartment to all with families who are looking for basic and clean accommodation.

The only thing I would have liked was a toaster!

There is a lovely big brown sofa now and which has not been mentioned.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

I thought this was a great place to stay and a lovely, bright and airy apartment. Very near the pool, which the kids loved. Lovely new sofa improves overall appearance inside and the views from the balcony are very green and relaxing.
