Just returned from the Algamar Apartments in Vilamoura. Good budget accommodation decorated in typical Portuguese style. Large lounge with well equipped kitchenette (electric cooker with 4 rings and oven, large fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave, toaster and kettle). Separate large bedroom. Large bathroom with bath and shower. Balcony with table and chairs overlooking pool area. No air conditioning. These apartments are well situated in a quiet area but still only a five minute walk to the Marina.
Apartment was supposed to be cleaned and towels changed twice a week, we didn't see anyone in the 8 days we were there, for us that wasn't a problem as we put our towels in the washing machine and kept the place clean.
Key pick-up is at the agency just across the road and if you have any queries the agency receptionist was very helpful she even went online to confirm our taxi to airport. If you arrive after 7pm when the office is closed make sure you get a phone number to contact them and someone will meet you at the apartments.
A word of warning regarding the lift.....
It will only take 2 people going up - with small suitcases. When we arrived we got stuck but thankfully the guy who met us with the key was still there and he told us to go to -0 and get out there and walk up (not good when your on the 3rd floor). We took no chances after that and only 1 person went up at a time but 3 were able to come down.
Supermarket - turn right from apartments and walk approx 5 minutes-opposite the entrance to the Marina.
Eating out - food generally of a high standard.
Beach - 10 minute walk away.
I would say the Algamar wouldn't be particularly suitable for children as there isn't a kids pool or park, so really nothing to keep them amused.
