We recommend this hotel.
My wife, our almost 5 year old daughter and I spent 4 nights at the Alfagar II Aparthotel in early June. We had a nice room on the 2nd floor. All rooms face the ocean. The building is further away from the water than the original Alfagar I, which are more like villa-style apartments. They appear to be renovating those. We could still catch a glimpse of the ocean from the balcony, which was nice and big with a bistro table for breakfast and two lounge chairs (where my daughter and I slept one night just for the fun of it).
The hotel caters to all-inclusive one week + guests (meals and drinks). However, we booked just the room. We still had access to all the amenities. The pools were great, especially the kid's pool. There are different levels of water slides, which our daughter loved.
The hotel was clean and well-cared for. We ate one night at the hotel buffet restaurant. We don't recommend it unless you are going as part of the all-inclusive. For the price, you are better off walking the 15-20 minutes in either direction to eat in town.
The cab ride to Albufeira (to the west) and to Vilamoura (to the east) was about 15-20 minutes. Albufeira is larger and has more to do. They have a great beach as well. There are closer beaches to the hotel: Praia Santa Eulalia and Praia Ouro. Santa Eulalia was a nice beach. We did not go to Ouro, but we heard it is a nice too.
Vilamoura is not as historic, but we really enjoyed walking around the marina, and we had a great meal at Cais'i.
