Have just returned from 3rd visit to Albacora, as in previous visits a wonderful relaxing holiday.The hotel is clean & welcoming, the staff are all helpful, polite, friendly and a credit to the hotel,lovely selection at breakfast & evening meal good.The bus into Tavira is useful and if out later than last bus return taxi only 6 euros.The hotel is in a lovely location especially if you want to relax, plenty of sunbeds round the pool and nice walks on the sands outside the hotel.The friendliness of the staff make a big contribution to the success of the holiday, some even remembered us from a previous visit.No real negatives for us ,only one thing, it would be good if the bus could make a stop at shopping centre outside of town.
