Alfagar II Aparthotel

Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

If it weren't for the rock hard beds!! Transfers (cheapest we found was 'resort hoppa' , 'green bus' was the name of the company that will collect you though. My family of 6 from faro return was about £30) were around 30 mins-easy, safe & pleasant journey. Check in was quick-1st impressions were very good. Hotel looks modern, clean & vast. Given a 2 bed apartment room 406. Very large, very clean and had everything you'd need. Balcony huge!! As we arrived fairly late (10pm ish), we made our way down to the bar/restaurant for a drink & pizza. First thing to say is 1) stray cats are really annoying! They don't leave you alone-they're not viscous, it's just not particularly pleasant. 2) bar staff are incredible-friendly, helpful, really go all out. 3) this is the only place on the resort you'll get free wi-fi, otherwise It'll cost you 7 euros per 24 hours, which I think is a little money grabbing in this day & age. Finally, 4) food & service is good. Breakfast is ok, you'll get better value for money if you take a left out of the hotel & take a walk for about 10 mins. (Take care though & hold little ones hands, a few mins up & on the same side of the road as the hotel, is a very dangerous stretch where there is a very large drop and absolutely no fence or walls between you and it!). We had a Chinese at the 'royal'-defo recommended.
The amenities & cleanliness of this resort are fabulous. No complaints at all. There are numerous pools (outdoor, indoor, big, small & everything in between!), slides, playgrounds, pool tables, tennis courts, supermarket. Literally everything for everyone. It's very pretty too-lots of Palm trees, plenty of sun beds & umbrellas. The other holiday makers were all very pleasant. I like the clientele this place attracts. Literally, the only downside was the rock hard beds! It was like sleeping on a breeze block!! Really awful. Oh and 1 man (forget his name) on reception. Think he suffers from little man syndrome!! But neither would stop me from returning. Very, very nice.

We spent a week here. Our apartment had everything we needed. It is a great place for all age groups. It's quite a walk into Albufeiro, but there is a shuttle from the hotel and only costs 1 euro each way. There is a small supermarket, several restaurants, and various swimming pools. Wireless was free in the snack bar, but was expensive in the hotel itself. I would recommend it.

Great place. Spotless clean. But please please turn on the slides. Having a great time but everyone asking about the slides. The amount of kids sad about this is growing. We understand it is low season but it would not take much to turn these on

Just spent 2 months at Alfagar II and we had a fantastic trip. We are already booked to go back again next year which will be our 5th consecutive year, the aparthotel is very clean and the girls work really hard. All of the staff is amazing and they go out of their way to make sure everything is ok. You can get up in the morning, sit on the balcony and have breakfast while enjoying the beautiful grounds with palm trees and cactus and later walk any number of beautiful sandy beaches and enjoy the ocean. It is truly amazing.

This was an excellent vacation, we spent a full month in the hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the buildings well maintained and clean. The balconies have an excell ent view of the sea.
The resteraunt did not meet the standard I was expecting however the food was well prepared and presented.
My biggest complaint is the beds these are the most uncomfortable beds I have slept on and I spent most of my vacation sleeping on the couch. They are also only singles my wife and I prefer a double bed.
The indoor swimming pool was cold and the sauna closed and fitness equipment not available.
We enjoyed our stay and would return to this location.
The location is a little out od Albufera but we enjoye the walks into town.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were on the east facing rooms at the east end of te building. Road traffic was quite loud. I woul...

We paid a little extra than we budgeted for because of all the excellent reviews. So glad we did. This is a perfect complex for a family holiday: the whole resort is spotlessly clean and the apartments are spacious and well equipped. There are plenty of pools and bars to wander between to keep everyone happy, relaxed and entertained. Great atmosphere and food selection at the poolside bars, as well as friendly staff (on the one occasion I was kept waiting for my order, it was given to me for free ). When you want a change of scene, take the steps down to the beautiful beach (my kids really enjoyed seeing a few lizards scuttle across our path on the way down!) In the evenings, we opted for the bar in the Alfagar Village where there is a great park for the kids to roam and make friends in. I suppose the resort is a little far out from other villages/attractions but, if you are looking for a relaxing, resort-based family holiday, you can't go wrong with this.

Room Tip: The little extra for the sea view is worth it.
