I'm wondering if anyone can help me in a destination for a holiday next June.
Here's a little background on what I'm looking for. I've previously been to the Algarve in April and stayed in Olhos D'Agua, which was very nice and quiet at that time of year (no children!). We visited Vilamoura which was alright, a bit more 'British' than I had expected as well as Albufeira.
Travelling are my brother (23), myself (21) and my mother and father in their late 50's. I know for a fact my mother would hate Albufeira as it's so busy and very 'marmite' in my opinion, despite being good for my brother and I at our age! In essence we're looking for a place with a few eateries and bars around, near the beach/on the beach, but with some scenery. Not too Brit holiday resort. I realise it's asking a lot but I was hoping someone could let me know how some of the resorts are. From reading I've read the area around Lagos is nice but have never visited and the websites I find have very different reviews from one another half the time!
Any suggestions are more than welcome, in fact I'm counting on it! Hotel recommendations are even more welcome (high end hotels preferred).
