My husband and I have just returned from a 5 night break and had an amazing time. We were looking for a nice relaxing time and that's exactly what we got. The apartments are a little bit dated but very clean and had a lovely big balcony with sun loungers and a table and chairs. The staff on reception were very friendly. The apartment surroundings were beautiful with well kept gardens and full of beautiful plants and flowers.
You could get a free bus from the apartments to Falesia beach but we preferred to walk and it took 15-20 mins. The beach is beautiful and very unspoiled and was a very relaxing place to laze about in the sun.
We took the bus into Albufeira one day and visited the old town where we're lots of lovely shops, bars and restaurants. The beach was very nice but a lot busier and more touristy than Falesia beach. The area in general was a lot busier which is fine if that's what you want but we much preferred where we were staying as it was a lot quieter.
There are some nice bars and restaurants 5 mins away from the apartments. Our favourite was Hugo's serving lovely tapas and other meals , all reasonably priced and huge portions. You could get a huge beer for 2 euros which is a bargain!
On the whole we had a fantastic break and thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Portugal. We will definitely stay here again. If you want a cheap relaxing break in the sun then this is the place for you. For any one giving the apartments a bad review, stop moaning when you're getting a bargain.
