This place is typical 90's Brits abroad. A road lined with bars, tatty souvenirs and a bad gut in the morning. You could be in any one of the many 'strips' scattered around Europe. By day it can be reasonably calm, mostly littered with the young mums dragging their kids around the restaurants/bars and little shops or down to the... More

The place has a lot of pubs and discos. The place is just electric with so much fun. During morning hours the place is for family as the sun sets the place transforms to something different. All the pubs opens up, awesome music and drinks. Lots of people from everywhere of the world. Cool place to hangout. I spent all... More

everything you hate about the idea of Brits abroad. Full English for €3 etc etc. Only went there as the kids wanted to spend some money on their last day and "buy some junk". I bought a €10 wallet that is probably a "genuine fake" which at the moment I am pleased with but will no doubt fall apart in... More

Once you see one strip they all look the same. Go in to old part of Albufeira much better. Take a stroll along the beach. Find a nice restaurant relax. Plenty of bars most with music. From the Montechoro strip to Albuferia old town €6 by taxi. Well worth it

The strip in Montechoro is very like most tourist strips on the south coast of Spain and the Canaries. Full of a great selection of restaurants, bars and shops of all sorts. We travelled here in October 2014 with 2 kids, ages 8 and 9. They had a blast and always spotted something that they were interested in. Overall we... More

We stayed at hotel Montechoro and the strip started from there and ended at the beach. Great night life, full of bars, restaurants and shops. Very lively atmosphere, it got more louder towards the middle of the strip. Quieter more towards our hotel. Lots of choice in places to eat and drink.
