We’re all about the Algarve, specifically the lovely seaside town of Albufeira. It’s got the Old Town that’s perfect for long lazy strolls in the sunshine. Over the hill you’ll find The Strip, packed with neon bars and all night parties. It really offers the best of both worlds.
So if you’re stuck for a place to stay, here’s our top five hotels in Albufeira.
Family friendly: The Paraiso de Albufeira Hotel Apartments have practically every facility you could think of, from one bedroom apartments to duplexes. The MGE restaurant and pool side snack bar are great for keeping little ones topped up, while the multi use court for basketball or football, mini golf course and video game room will keep even the moodiest teenager busy. That’s before you even get to the pool, nearby beach or the selection of water parks you’ll find around.
Budget traveller: Our budget friendly choice is the Luna Villa Alba. Set in beautiful gardens, it’s a great choice for a self catering holiday, where you can be your own boss. Close to some delicious tavernas and just a couple of minutes by taxi to the Fisherman’s Beach or the Strip, it’s a great all round choice.
A little luxury: Just outside Albufeira town, you’ll find the indulgent Hotel Riu Palace Algarve. It’s on one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole of the Algarve and is a great idea for some indulgent relaxation. Head for the spa for a massage, take a dip in the Jacuzzi or leave yourself in the capable hands of the on site hammam for an escape where you can truly unwind.
Good for couples: Clube Humbria, Albufeira. Just a few minutes’ drive from fisherman’s beach, Albufeira’s most famous stretch of sand, you’ll find the elegant apartments. It’s surrounded by lush greenery and is home to a couple of pools and a bar. The apartments have their own balconies and the restaurants on site are a treat. Of course the real bonus is relaxing as much as you like, or using the time to explore this lovely city.
Right on The Strip: You can bet you’ll find some top class partying on the infamous Albufeira Strip. The place is lined with nightclubs and bars giving you the chance to dance the night away. So, where better to stay than just 5 minutes from the all the nightlife than at the Apartamentos Turisticos Golden Beach?
