Not what I was expecting!
Posted Jul 16, 2016
I really enjoyed my time here! Went for a week, in a superior apartment (room 392) and was expecting something small, but with the bits that we'd need (fridge, oven etc)... On arrival, we were greeted with something quite lovely. The apartment was massive for 2 people, it had a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, full living room with sofa bed, TV, dinner table and chairs. Large bedroom, with chest of drawers, cupboard and safe. It also had a hairdryer, ironing board and clothes drying rack. Most special of the lot was our balcony, it was huge. It was bigger than the apartment, had 3 sunbeds, tables, chairs and had wonderful views over all around. We were 2 mins from 1 of 4 pools... There's a quiet pool that the staff didn't tell us about up by the Blue Restaurant at the top of the resort, which is smaller and a lot quieter than the main three.
Plenty of amenities on site, pools, bars, restaurants. Some of which provide live entertainment, which is a nice touch. There are pool tables, table football and other bits to keep you entertained. The resort is 25 min walk into Albufeira Town, it's a nice easy walk down. There is a supermarket on site at the resort, but another slightly bigger one about a 10 min walk away, simply turn right out of the resort, walk down past the 'exercise park' and it's on the right before you reach the roundabout.
Staff are lovely, their English is exceptional, they are very accommodating. I'd 100% be back. We went just before peak season.
