We only booked our holiday four days before we actually travelled to Albufeira so hadn't done much research into either the resort or our accommodation. We were pleasantly surprised by both. The hotel is on the eastern edge of Albufeira - about a 20 minute walk to the Strip, but with bars and restaurants en route so need to walk the whole way (we didn't!) We did walk down into the old town along the beach one day, and back along the main road, though for a night out it is probably a bit too far, but taxis are readily available and reasonably priced. As it is nearing the end of the season (we returned 29th September) the hotel was quiet so no fighting for sun loungers. Downside was that the bar by the pool we used didn't actually open, but we were seconds from our apartment so it wasn't a problem. Our weather was mixed, so on one day we made use of the spa/sauna/steam room and treatment facilities. Very relaxing, but not cheap though there are special promotions each day. The restaurants in the hotel were quite expensive, so we chose to cater breakfast/lunches for ourselves, and go into the resort in the evening. The grounds of the resort are very well-kept, the staff polite and efficient and our studio and its facilities are probably the best we have ever had on holiday. Extremely clean, maid service every day and all fixtures and fittings of a very high quality. Free use of safety deposit box in room, and free air conditioning - both of which we have paid quite a bit for on other holidays. All in all, a very enjoyable place to stay.
