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.

    We really liked the many beaches, excellent shops, fine restaurants and welcoming people. We enjoyed exploring Old Town and hiking to the fabulous beaches. We stayed in Albuferia mid January to mid February and we were pleasantly surprised by the number of restaurants open. It’s was quiet and not the party town we heard about. We didn’t have a bad meal, really enjoyed Cepa Velha, The Market, Lara’s, Farol’s Steakhouse, Alfredo’s and many stops at Paragrafo’s at the Marina. We enjoy hiking so every day was a new adventure, we found it easy to navigate but used our iPhone to access the remote beaches and early on during our stay. We did find we had to careful on crosswalk’s as some drivers do not stop. I sense Albufeira gets very busier and likely a bit louder in the peak season but it was perfect for us in the shoulder period, being a retired couple. Found it to be quiet and restful. Highly recommend Bengal Cave and coastal boat tour from the Marina - was terrific. There are many tours to choose from, we went with xRide, it was very enjoyable.

    It was advertised as walking distance to the beach. It is actually walking distance to a boat that takes you to the beach. As a disabled person, I was not able to take advantage of the beach proximity, and wish that the location had been more clearly stated.

    The location is most practical because at the back you have the beautiful beaches at the front you have access to all basic necessities like chemist, ATM, small supermarket. Lots of various restaurants , Churches and many gift shops . Tourists office. A little further from the hotel you have various local buses plus the red and blue hop on off tour buses at €25 per person. ( was off peak, ). The little tour trains

    Albufeira like a magic place, depend what you want. You have everything. No matter what you do, what you want, you find the way. Just take care you self if you go out in night bars or party, put you eyes control and never let you drink alone, a lot problems about people put somethings in you drink when you not see. The rest you just enjoy, take a relax and have a nice time in Albufeira.

    The apartment was very clean and had everything I needed for my two week stay. Stephane went beyond the call of duty, even taking me back to the airport my 2nd day there as my luggage did not arrive with me the day before. He consistently texted to make sure everything was good in the apartment and that I had supplies. The short walk to the beach was wonderful and then the walk on the beach to old town was fabulous. I highly recommend this apartment. Great location; close to shops, restaurants, markets, beach, and host—all wonderful!

    The location! Christina - the proprietor was excellent and so helpful. She even found towels we could use at the beach!. We loved the small beach that was only 200 meters away - much more private than the bigger beaches on either side. The unit was very functional and comfortable. Well laid out! This building is close enough to walk to old town Albufeira - but far enough away to avoid the crowds. It is close to ‘the Strip’ for dining and bar options too!

    Very clean property with good facilities and pricing. One Bedroom apartments are comfortable for 2-3 people. Rooms are very good quality. Housekeeping staff are very friendly and efficient. Front Desk Manager/Supervisor lady was very nice and helpful. very nice pool area with plenty of sun beds and space for size of hotel. Quiet location at night so great for a good night’s sleep after visiting the old town which is a 10-minute stroll or €4 taxi cab away.

    Nice apartment not so far from the old town of Albufeira (5-10 min walk). We had the apartment who was near the pool which was very nice. The host Sandra was the best. She welcomed us in the apartment and showed us around, if there was anything we could text here and she would look if she could help. Some of the equipement in the kitchen were missing and she immediately came with the missing pieces.

    Management, receptionist and other staff are very professional and welcoming. Hotel is located in the best part of the town. Few steps from the beautiful beach and old town. There are many restaurants and shops just outside of the hotel. Housekeepers work hard to maintain the place clean and tidy. Very good value for the money.
