Winter break help

Hi

We have be to Algarve two times & really enjoyed it. The first time we stayed at the Tropical Sol in Alburfeira which was lovely. The second we stayed at Vale de carros in Olhos de agua & found we preferred that area a little more.

We are thinking of a break from 27th December for two weeks & after reading the reviews about Xmas/new year on the forum have decided that we are better to be in Albufeira to enable us to be near to some restaurants & bars or hotels which may have some entertainment on occasionally in the evenings.

We are in our 50s & just like a relaxed holiday where we can enjoy a leisurely walk, eating out in restaurants but also enjoy self catering so we can stay in too some evenings & some live music but not night clubbing.

I have got our shortlist down to Oura view is coming in as our first choice. Brisa sol or Tropical sol, although the Tropical sol does not have an indoor pool.

I wondered if anyone has stayed at any of these during the winter season.

Thanks in advance

Julie

How about the Vila Petra? I have stayed there many times. They have an indoor pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, squash court and various other bits and bobs to keep you entertained. Don't know if they would have entertainment at night but you would be close enough to the bars etc on the strip. The VP is lovely and the rooms are the best we have stayed in ( not that we do now as we live here).

We have booked Brisa sol from 27th December for two weeks. The central location & indoor pool was the deciding factor.

You will of made a good choice, we like Tropical sol but like you think we will want an indoor pool for new year. We have booked oura view never stayed there before but did have a walk round in July and it is looking a bit dated now. Brisa sol will be a great location and not very far to walk home!

Brisa sol for me it will be quiet so you will have the pool to yourself and it will be very cheap we have stayed many times😎
