Forte Do Vale which is a nice hotel has 2 bedroom apartments and is situated in a central area. As for all inclusive, with many local businesses struggling, all inclusive holidays just make the situation worse. Shop around and you will find many reasonable priced eateries in Albufeira

I personally wouldn't recommend AI at all in Albufeira, or any large resort really. I would only consider AI for a couple of nights chill out break and only if it was a top AI hotel. AI is not always a bargain, usually bottom end drinks and not always the best food. Easier to budget I suppose, but definitely not always cheaper.

Luxury AI in more exotic places, maybe? But not in the Algarve for myself, you'll miss too much.

I agree with ChampaignSocialist's recommendation for Forte Do Vale. Lovely spacious modern apartments within walking distance of both the Old Town and the Strip. The 2 bedroom apartments would easily accomodate 5 people.

I have to agree with the others too about all inclusive. Theres so many restaurants serving delicious food at very reasonable prices. I wouldnt go all inclusive in Albufeira.

Read the reviews of Trip Adsvisor about FDV, they are very complimentary.

It really is a nice place to stay.

Parque da Corcovada has some of the most spacious self catering apartments in Albufeira, very luxurious and well situated within close walking distance to many amenities. Don't go AI, you will really be doing yourself a disservice.

For self catering and Corcovada, have a look at

I would recommend a 2 bed apartment at the Tropical Sol, its central to both old and new towns, the rooms are spacious with a large open plan kitchen/diner/lounge area. There are also 2 bathrooms which is a definate plus. Hope this helps.

Just returned from Forte Do Vale yesterday and would highly recommend. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment and was huge but the two bedroom would be plenty large enough for your family. You are 10 minutes from the strip walking and 15 minutes from the old town. I walked both places on plenty of occassions and I have osteo-arthritis and nearly 60 and it took me 15 minutes to strip and 20 minutes to old town. At the time we were there no entertainment there but you will find plenty not far away. Modello supermarket 10 minutes away, spar 5 minutes and a few restauranta and bars a few minutes away. Do not,however book directly with hotel as is much more expensive then booking with other agents on line. Other hotels nearby were Tropical Sol, Brisa Sol and Villa Gale
