07 Aug 2012

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Don't, try Lagos or Faro, from what I've seen, it actually feels a lot more like Portugal and there is plenty to see and do!

Liked: Nice beach Good choice of restaurants People being generally friendly The weather was great

Disliked: It felt like tourism has totally taken over part of the Portuguese culture in that town and I found it quite disturbing that everything was in English and that we were being constantly addressed to in English. Whatever happenedt o authenticity? Public transports a little problematic as train station is actually 8kms out of town and bus station quite isolated with quite slow buses! The tourist office provides very little information and you will not even get suggested visits from there.

19 Jul 2012

Travel Type:
With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Beach / sunbathing Relaxation / spa

Customer Travel Tip: If you can afford it, hire a car! We made the mistake of not hiring one and this limited us in relation to where we able to go in terms of the surrounding areas.

Liked: We arrived in Albufeira late due to our flight being delayed and was pleasantly surprised that firstly the owner waited for us at the property and secondly, advised us where we could purchase groceries that were still open. After a short walk, we came across two supermarkets that we open so we were able to purchase food for our breakfast the following day.

Disliked: Not really, only negative would be the sea being on the extremely chilly side.

Customer Travel Tip: Suncream!

Liked: Great food, weather and beaches. The people were very friendly as the entire city is very tourist orientated.
