Just back from a week in albuferia , were a young couple , well I wouldn't go back if it was for free ! From day 1 we counted days down till we were going home ! Notting to do there litterly ! If you don't drink it want to party all night then DONT GO ! Shops that all sell excally the same crap don't open till the evening almost , place is a ghost town in te day and only becomes active at night , people hounding you for free shots cocaine hash weed ect ect , no sight seen to be done what so ever , notting . It's not cheap to eat out either €55 for 2 mains and 2 soft drinks was the norm. Gangs and groups every where , we seen bottles been throwin from one end of the strip to the other no regard for who they would hit either . People passé out at 9 in the evening from drink , and even at 7 in the morning people falling all over the place locked , AVOId avoid avoid go to lanzarote or something or stay at home and keep ur money ! Never go back .

We discovered Vertigo last year on a long weekend. We ended ups spending quite a bit of time there! We really like the pool room in the back with the music cover wall paper. We've had hours, days of fun here and can't wait to return in august. Staff are friendly and location is excellent, right on the square in the old town. on a nice day its great sitting out side watching the world go by.

Been to Albufeira a few times now over the years. always found the old town to be a pleasant place to be, the restaurant staff can be a bit of a nuisance in their attempts to entice you to eat at their restaurant but they are not overbearing. The old town has a really nice friendly feel to it, one is spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out and there are a number of shops selling the usual tourist stuff. The beach is super clean there are a number of water activities available. It is possible to walk to the old town harbour and there is a regular land train takes you back to the "strip" Alternatively it is possible to walk along the beach back to the new town.
