Just returned after our first trip to Albufeira. We had originally booked at CPO, but were moved to Oura Praia Hotel due to the building works at CPO.
We visited the other Petchey resorts in the area to decide which one we might like to come back to next year.
Oura Praia Hotel was by far the best! Okay, it doesn't have the views that some of the apartments in the other resorts have, but it is much more intimate. The other resorts, Club Praia da Oura, Oura View Beach Club & the new resort, Forte do Vale, were much too big for our liking! Matter of opinion, of course. They were all within easy walking distance.
We had a good lunch at OVBC, with a very friendly waitress and a good Portugese buffet at CPO. We tried having coffee at Forte do Vale, after walking there in the rain. Sorry, but the receptionist was rather off-hand and there was nowhere for coffee ay 11am!
Our apartment at the hotel was spacious, with 2 bedrooms, lots of storage space and a view over the pool. It was nice to have some basic supplies provided, plus a bottle of wine. It was also very clean, as was everywhere else in the hotel.
There were plenty of loungers round the pool, although we were there out of season.
A cafetiere would have been nice to have in our apartment so we could make decent coffee!
The area was a bit noisy during the night and early hours with people returning to their hotels, but that's not the hotel's fault.
Will definitely consider returning next year, but only if we can have a room with the pool view. Really don't want a view of the road.
