There is only one way to get to Spain from the Algarve without driving and that is by bus. However the schedules do not permit a day trip eg to Seville unless you can plan to hang around until midnight. In winter the earliest possible arrival is 1130 Spanish time and there are no return trips between 1615hrs and midnight. One way fare is about 20 Euros. There are excursion day trips available locall,y but typically with a very early start from the Algarve.
Car hire is a minefield of problems and issues. I do not drive and will leave that to others.
There are no 'best deals' on restaurants. Every big town has plenty of choice from the very expensive to McDonald's. Let us know where you play to be staying (Albufeira?) and your budget and I am sure people can recommend somewhere they like. Albufeira is a big place and in March there will be placed that are still closed for the winter break before the hordes come back around Easter.
Janice, in view of the fact Canada have the FIFA Wu-20 this summer and Women`s World Cup next year, you may be interested in Women`s Algarve Cup (though Canada not there) ... venues to be confirmed, but Albufeira stadium virtually certain to host some games. According to Soccerway ...
