Shame we wasted so much time
According to the owner of the property Apparently Homeaway system messed everything up, Firstly when we arrived Reception no one was expecting us as the property was a private apartment nothing to do with clube albufeira then when we got the keys at 3pm after a very long wait the owner said he didnt know anything about us (not true as he had prevously emailed me & i have proof of that)we were told that we had not confirmed our holiday even though everything had been paid except the the short term fee.We were only staying here for two nights. While at reception we were told by Mr White that the apt would be given to us with the condition we had to move out on the following day at 10am as they were expecting new guest in Branco house, guests that never arrived as we were given a 2nd apt owned by clube albufeira itself just opposite Branco house. So we still don’t understand why we had to move out. We wasted lots of time waiting for problem to be solved and moving around. The 2nd apt we did not get keys till after 4pm & check out by 10am.We felt strand most of the time in an unknown country.Once we got home Mr Ken White sent me a PM asking me if i was willing to pay him a extra £100 due to the mess, mess that had nothing to do with me as i did my booking & paid what the system said I never refused to pay the short stay fee but i was not willing to pay a extra £100 due to the mess!! Mr White now claims that i should have not gone ahead with the booking as he says that i knew price was incorrect ( i didnt know it was wrong) that i should be thankfull to him because he helped me out & that if i would have told him that his apt was not occupied by no one on the following day that we could have stayed there at the end, well u should keep track of your property & know who & when you have guests staying at Branco House. We paid you for a two night stay at your apt & we only stayed one & thanks to that all our plans went to the trash. I just hope we recieve our refundable deposit back as we left everything as it was nice & clean with no damage. When i told Mr White that i refused to pay the £100 extra he told me that he could have refused to help us & not even let us stay in his apartment even though we had paid him, that says so much of you Mr White. We wasted so much time that we could not use the facilities of the club, place is very nice & clean but we wont be back to Branco house.
A lovely holiday in Portugal
Clubs Albufeira is an amazing complex to stay at. The apartment was beautiful, very tastefully decorated with lots of equipment to use during your stay especially in the kitchen. The bedrooms were lovely as were the bathrooms and being able to sit in the lovely sunshine on the outdoor furniture was amazing. I would recommend hiring a car as the apartment is at the top of the complex. A lovely place for a relaxing holiday. Thanks
The apartment is beautiful and so well furnished. There is everything that you need there to complete your holiday. We only had 1 problem and that was the heating which played up sometimes working most times not, all three going into fault mode and as it was Feb it was cold at night. The apartment is on the outskirts of the complex and we were glad that we had hired a car.
Great apartment with everything you'll need. Don't book transfers through club albufeira. The taxi droped us off at the reception to check in. Club albufeira refused to take us to the apartment in their courtesy van because we were in a private apartment. It's a long walk up hill with cases and children. Not good! Book private and make sure the taxi waits for you to check in.
Annette from our office has just come back from the apartment herself and she booked her transfers through Clube Albufeira, as she usually does. The taxi dropped her off at reception and after she picked up the key the taxi then dropped her off at the apartment, as always, which is included within the price, albeit we usually give a tip.
I'm not sure why this didn't happen for your stay and I must add that I have always found the staff at reception to be very helpful and obliging.
I hope that helps
Lovely spacious apartment.
Well equipped apartment clean and tidy with Old town Albuferia within walking distance. The owner extremely helpful replying quickly to any queries that we had and the complex had everything to suit all needs fantastic location for families.
tudo muito bom, bem limpo, arrumado, e bem recheado de equipamentos
everything very good, well cleaned, tidy, and well stuffed
Albufeira old town is within approximately 2km with easy access onto Fishermans Beach and adjoining beaches plus many unspoilt little coves and numerous stretches of other beautiful sandy beaches which make the Algarve so desirable. The other access onto the water is via the Marinas with a host of cruises + boat trips to the caves, dolphin watching, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving etc etc.
The apartment is within a simple 30 min drive from Faro airport and private transfers can be arranged, (1-4 people approx 40 euros), (5-6 people approx 50 euros). If wished you can be met at the terminal, taken directly to the apartment, handed the keys and shown around. The complex is ideally sited far enough away from the airport but within easy reach with well priced flights available year round.
The old town is within approximately 2km with quaint cobbled side streets with numerous local shops, daily market stalls selling local handicrafts and jewellery, fine restaurants, bars and cafes and a central square providing street musicians and entertainers. The large Algarve Shopping Complex is an approximate 5 min drive with cinema, bowling alley and a host of designer shops and retail outlets. Faro Airport is approx 40 km. Ferreiras Railway Station is approx 6 km.
Car hire is not essential especially with the courtesy bus into town and everything so readily at hand plus the reception staff are happy to organise transport if and when required or car hire can be organised.
The apartment was newly built in 2006 within an already highly successful, safe + secure complex which has a spacious village feel maintaining traditional Portuguese flavour. The Algarve is beautiful, friendly and the weather remains good nearly all the year through, still around the 15 degree mark in the winter. The complex is ideal being close enough to town and all its amenities but being just on the outskirts is far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet.
The complex is set amongst beautiful clean and well maintained grounds and is a lovely place to stay or use as a base to then discover the rest of The Algarve or maybe try some Excursions, Local Big Game Fishing, Sailing, Water Sports, Paragliding, Scuba Diving, Boat trips, Horse Riding, Caving, Jeep Safaris, Quad bike treks, Hiking, Cycling, Visiting Museums, Churches, etc etc. Albufeira Camping is located opposite the complex and its facilities are available to Clube Albufeira residents at no extra charge and include a larger pool and supermarket, on-site bakery, newspaper kiosk, craft shop, children's sandy play area, tennis + football courts, restaurant, clubhouse with disco + live entertainment during high season.
