Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked the "Ophelia" excursion through our Thomson reps and it was the best thing about our 2 week holiday. Fantastic day out with stunning caves and beautiful beaches. Worth every penny!

The 'Algarve' region was part of a recent trip my wife and I took this last September. We visited several places in Spain and Morocco and the final two weeks we spent traveling through Portugal.
The Algarve was our first stop for a week. We spent the time on several beaches...all very clean with a lot of choices of beach terrain. Some very private and some not. The food, especially their soup, was excellent no matter which restaurant we ate at. The night scene in Albuferia was a great experience with streets filled with tourists, great eateries, shopping and more. I would certainly recommend renting a car..we used Avis in Albuferia. The car was a new Toyota station wagon that was fully loaded. I highly recommend adding on the charge for the GPS..Paulo as my wife named him gave us a lot more time at our various destinations. I must say that we fell in love with Portugal, the people, the food, and the history! By the way Portugal is cheap compared to Spain! We are definitely planning a return to the northern regions in a couple years when we will tour France.

Praia de Rocha is a beach resort a few kilometers west of Portimao. Portimao itself is a working port on the Algarve and has frequent visits by ocean liners. It is also a residential and commercial center. The waterfront host a couple of large pavement cafes which offer a wide range of everything from full English breakfasts to decent Italian Pasta meals with wine from around 15 euros per head. Adjacent newsagents offer a wide range of European newspapers from around 10:30 each day and it is very pleasant to read a current day 'The Times' with a freshly squeezed orange juice.
Frankly there is not a lot on offer in Portimao itself. Even the locals will tell you your choices are a sea trip to the caves on the Algarve, a river trip to Silves, or eat sardines. Our experience was that the later was the least attractive. The satisfaction from the former was gained by engaging with the staff who generally spoke good English.
In 2012 the main shopping areas of the town were quite depressing, obviously due to the economic climate. So don't expect too much there. However possibly worth a visit for those interested in what is available.
Would I go back? Yes - but only for a weekend and then only to spend more time in Silves. Would it be worth it? Probably not.
