We're giving the Algarve a go in the August hols next summer for a 10 day hol.
We've never been before so don't know where best to stay. We are 2 adults and a 9 year old, and in the past we've liked the 'holiday village' type resort (pool, separate apartments with kitchen, kids ents, not too far from the beach etc) rather than one room hotels.
Can anyone recommend a family friendly place to stay that's, say:
- 20 miles either side of Faro (where we're flying to - I don't want to hire a car to get to the resort)
- popular with English speakers (more so the kid has someone to play with)
- a pool and kids club
- not too far from the sea (i like snorkeling etc)
Sorry if it's a bit general, but we don't know enough to decide which resort/town to aim for yet.
Any info that helps to kick off our decision making process welcome!
