“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 17 September 2010

I stayed at the Alfagar II for 2 weeks in Aug/Sept. I travelled with Falcon out of Dublin Airport. I stayed here on a self-catering basis in a large one bedroom apartment with sea/pool view. This was simply the best apartment I have ever stayed in on a sun holiday. The apartment was very spacious and modern. The kitchen was kitted out with microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, 4 ring hob cooker & oven and all crockery, pots, pans, utensils etc were supplied. The decor in the apartments is clean, crisp and modern and we had a huge balcony with table & chair. I could not find any fault with the apartment I stayed in at all, absolutely wonderful.
The Pool area at the Alfagar II is really good. There are 3 pools, 2 for kiddies with slides, plenty of sun beds, a pool bar and also an indoor pool. Finding available sun beds was never an issue for us.
The Alfagar II is about a 10 minute walk to the nearest beach. There are two beaches close by, Santa Eulia which is down a lot of steps! The other beach is Maria Luisa, its about a 10 min (slow) walk from the apartments, it's a very nice beach....really big waves and a strong current in the sea so be careful! There are at least 3 lifeguards on duty at all times though.
The only one flaw with the alfagar that I can comment on is the location of it. There are no bars/restaurant close by they are all at least a 10 minute walk. Nevetheless, the benefit of the location is that you are between Ohlos D'Agua and Albufeira so if you want a mad night go to Albufeira and if you want a quiet night go to Ohlos D'Agua.
I had breakfast once in the hotel and a couple of lunches at the pool bar, the food was OK, nothing amazing but fairly edible. Staff were attentive and helpful. Falcon rep, Lauren was brilliant and was at the hotel every evening.
If you're going on holiday to these apartments it is a given that you will love them and have a great holiday!!! I would absolutely return to the Alfagar again and again.

The apartments in this complex are excellent very spacious and clean. However I have travelled far and wide on half board holidays and I would have to say that although the food was ok, there was much less choice than i have ever had anywhere else, I would recommend this aparthotel for those looking for self catering, although that said it is a bit of a trek to local restaurants. I did not find the staff at this hotel very friendly. It's a shame because the hotel apartments are great. if you visit this hotel be sure to visit the old town of albufeira at night, there is a lovely atmosphere and lots to see. Oh yeh and buy the way if you are visiting with children, the pool is great, but it is a real trek to either of the nearby beaches and very hilly!!

Just returned from a 5 night stay at the Alfagar 2. Delighted with the accommodation. Very clean and well serviced. We had a garden view. Staff very helpful and friendly. Complex quiet, but that suited us. Excellent facilities including an indoor pool. This complex is a 15 minute walk to the strip but only 5 mins to the very nice beach. Suitable for everyone with the facilities and location to match. A great value break.
