FAQs about hotels in Albufeira








Sun, Sand and The Strip!

One of the best Algarve resorts, Albufeira has wonderful beaches, turquoise waters and the dramatic, rocky coastline that makes this part of Portugal so special.

Naturally, life here is all about sun, sand and sea. The most popular Albufeira beach is Fisherman’s Beach and you can still see locals bringing in the fishing boats every morning - if you’re up early enough, that is. Tunnel Beach is accessed through an opening in the cliff, and both have a variety of water sports.

Further up the coast is Albufeira Marina, from where sightseeing boat trips depart, while east of the town is the 9-hole Balaia golf course. On the way here, you pass Arias de Sao João, home to The Strip where the best bars and clubs are found, many staying open until the early hours.

The Old Town of Albufeira is more peaceful, and its cobbled streets house Moorish buildings and some great restaurants serving fresh fish. If you fancy a day trip from Albufeira, the 12th-century remains of Moorish Almoáda Castle in Paderne can be visited for free.

The town is around a 45 minute drive from Faro Airport and there is a fantastic range of beach resorts, small B&Bs and Albufeira apartments at Booking.com.

    The hotel Epic Sana has to be one of the best hotels in this area. We found nothing that could be improved, as the accomadation, food, cleanliness was as a 5* should be. All the staff from management to housekeepers were pleasant and always willing to help or assist in anyway. Local facilities in the pretty village of ‘Olhos de Agua’ were adequate, if you are looking for a quiet peaceful holiday(no noisy night clubs or bars) which was heavenly for us. Excellent *****

    Albufeira is one of the best places to go. We have travelled many times and have stayed in Old Town Albufeira with friends and really enjoyed it every time we go. Hotel Music and Location are all excellent. We would recommend anyone to go to Albufeira for a holiday. Plenty of transport options wherever you want to go there. Buses, Trains etc.

    It has a nice air to it but I found it strange because all was for tourists. There were no bookshops for example, or any of the normal shops you find in a place. Eduardo’s is a great restaurant. The tourist train is great but I got lost looking for the blue route. The local buses were good but didn’t go through the centre, just near it. Coming back from the centre the bus stop was on the other side of the road which was confusing if you didn’t know.

    We walked about 10 miles total. Left our hotel in the new district and walked all the way to the marina. Very lovely. Hills and steps and crooked streets in old town made for a wonderful experience. Walked the whole marina and stopped for a bite and beer at El Barrio. Very nice. Back near our hotel we ate dinner at Lara’s. Delicious fish and chips.

    This location was great. It was close to the supermarkets (and gym) and within walking distance to the tourist strip, the old town and bus terminal. The apartment was large and clean. There were plenty of dishes and pots for cooking. Andre was outstanding! From check-in and during our stay he ensured we were comfortable. The view on the deck was perfect for us. Enjoying the sound and site of the ocean was fantastic. We had many afternoon sangrias on the deck! We will be back here for sure.

    We had a partial view of the pools, pretty landscaping, and coast from our balcony. The large pools looked inviting, but we did not use them since we were limited on time. The dunes and beach were lovely, and we enjoyed sunset there. The hotel was quiet and relaxing during our stay, likely due to the cooler weather and fewer guests. Dinner at the restaurant was better than other places we've dined during our visit to Portugal. We wished that we had stayed more than one night.

    Vila Branca is an amazing property in the Albufeira Old Town. I communicated with Nico - the property manager during my stay and he was really kind, professional and helpful host. The 1 bedroom apartment in which I stayed was neat, tidy and spotless clean. Everything was accessible and within walking distance from Vila Branca. Useful tip: Try the cafe across from the property. It serves the best coffee and meals.

The receptionists were helpful and polite, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean and ticks just about all of the boxes required for a few days away.
