The accomodations were poor. We booked a superior 1 bedroom apartment which we did not consider to be superior. There were numerous problems with apartment #488, including dated and poorly maintained bathroom with cracked tile, peeling paint on cabinets, mouldy calking, limited

Our apartment was absolutely ideal for the two of us - clean, spacious, well-appointed and equipped. The clubhouse was a pleasant place to have a drink and the staff were polite and helpful. The breakfasts were disappointing - poor choice and display. There was plenty to do in

Our experience made us want to return to Portugal. We found the grounds well groomed and well organized. The unit was well equipped and spacious. We were not enamoured with the twin beds pushed together. The kitchen was well equipped for all or needs as we so a lot of our own

Is it far from nightlife bars etc?
the Strip (new town is probably about 20 min walk). Old town Albufeira would be another 20min's I'd say. the resort provides free shuttle bus to and from Albufeira twice a day, so you can avail of that. a taxi to the old town cost us 6-7e

hi there. there is one small supermarket onsite, just at the entrance, there is also a pharmacy. it has all the basic stuff, fresh coffee, breads and pastries every morning (off licence as well), a bit pricey for a weekly shop). there is a big supermarket about 15-20 walk (to the left as you leave the resort), i do not remeber the name of it. I am not sure about a bus, maybe check at reception, there is a bus stop outside the gate. but you can either rent bikes from reception or get a taxi. we walked to and from and it was fine (mind, there is a portion of the walk going up the hill :)) i have seen other people walking back to the resort from there with their shopping.

"Apartments vary in furnishings, maintenance also seems to vary as there are good apartments and poor apartments."
"apartments near reception are lovely but if you have no car, one nearer the clubhouse would be better"
"no tips needed, large appartment size"
"700 area, away from the main part"
"apartments are virtually all the same .modern"
