Do they have any evening entertainment for adults
Are pool towels provided in this hotel? Also is there much to do within walking distance?
In addition to the answers provided already, there are several great traditional restaurants within 10 - 25 minutes walk. Taxis and local buses are cheap and there is a good waterpark and great sand sculpture park within a short ride away. Gale is a much quieter resort than Albufeira (we prefer Gale) but you can easily spend a day in Albufeira for a bit more 'excitement'?

What is the food like and is there a good selection? Thinking of going down the all inclusive route.
The food is good but I think it best to try some of the other restaurants in the vicinity for a bit more variety.

Is a good beach nearby? How far, would you say?
Superb beach is a 5 minute stroll away. It is down hill but a very gentle slope.
