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.

    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.

    I went in February which I think was the ideal time to go to Albufeira. It was warm and sunny but not hot. More importantly the beautiful coastline and ancient town weren't flooded with noise and 100s of people. My Uber driver told me there are a lot of groups going in the summer just to drink, so it gets pretty noisy. This is a beautiful city that in my view has been spoilt by many tourist shops and bars, so it's largely lost it's charm ... if you go looking in the back steets though you catch glimpses of it. The harbour is tranquil, and the marina is definitely worth a look too. I definitely wouldn't go in peak season, but as a winter getaway, it was an ideal location.

    Okay at this time of year (February) although many places were closed and the weather wasn't great - but I wouldn't go near Albufeira in peak season, simply 'cos it's not my cup of tea when all the crowds and the gangs of kids are on the rampage!

    Albufeira is gorgeous.

    Albufeira is gorgeous. The beaches are stunning and there are plenty of small beaches within walking distance. Old Town is easily accessed too as there is plenty of transport options, small train, taxi, tuk tuk. We took a boat trip out to Benagil caves, which was amasing. Fantastic restaurants and bars also.

    For a solo traveler it's ideal. It's fantastic value for money, somewhere to drop your bags and shower and sleep is all I want from a room. Ideally situated between the new and old town so you've got the best of both worlds. Room was clean and spacious, also if you're leaving late there's somewhere to store your luggage. When I come back to Albufeira I wouldn't look to stay anywhere else One final call out to Rita, a delightful young lady who has to be the most helpful member of staff I've ever come across

    Th apartment was in immaculate condition and it was very well equipped. Nice extra touches like the smart tv, a lot of storage space and had a great outdoor living area. There is easy access to the pool from the balcony. The apartment is in a great location and is a five minute walk from the old town so no need for any taxis. Very quiet at night considering how close you are to the old town. One of the best places to stay in Albufeira by far and is great value for everything included. Would definitely recommend!

    The property itself was a great size for a family, the location is a little out of the way, although it's an easy walk to the Marina and into Albufeira old town itself if you are capable. The pool area was spacious and always plenty of sunbeds available. There is a snack bar/restaurant on site which serves really good food of reasonable price. The staff at the mini market are lovely, there isn't much choice but there are essentials (ice cream is cheaper in the mini market rather than the pool bar)

    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.
