i am 14 and i went as a family with my mum, dad, sister, nanny and granda
this place in Albufeira has been the best holiday resort ive ever been to,the rooms are 10/10 they are by far the biggest appartements and they are immaculate,
the cleaners come everyday to your room to tidy.
i thought that the location was great, it was in the centre of everything, one path to the strip&new town and another path which lead to the beach and the old town.
the strip was about a 5 or 10 minute walk away and the old town was about 10 or 15, though it was very uphill to get to the escalator at the top of the town.
the hotel was very quiet at nights which was good if you wanted to stay in for the night without being disturbed.
Before going to Forte Do Vale we read some bad reports about the restaurant in the hotel, therefore we did not try this restaraunt as there were SO many bars and restaurants in the town for a reasonable price.
There is a Bar&Grill about 5 minute walk up towards the supermarket called Fat Cats which i would reccomend, we ate there twice and it had great entertainment, only thing i would say wasnt great about it was the service because our meals came out with about a 5 minute wait between each persons meal, but after all the food was worth the wait. They sell english sunday dinners which you book to eat and a time of your choice.
There was alot of tourist menu's if you wanted a 3 course mean which included a starter, main meal and desert along with a drink, in one particular rastaurant we ended up eating in 3 times the quality was that good,which was called Restaurante O Veleiro.
Also there are alot of fish restarauntes, such as dishes like red snapper&sardines.
the Taxis were around 4 euros from the old town, but there was a very long queue at the taxi depos which strangely cleared very quickly as the taxis were comin round the corner one after the other.
This hotel is excellent though, the pool is great and the sunshine is always out,
sometimes the sunebeds were taken and there wernt any left so i was always sent earlier in the morning to reserve sunbeds, even though we were told not to.
but as a matter of fact everyone done it.
The sun was out from about 9ish am in the morning til around 8pm at night.
Over all i would rate this Holiday a well deserved 10 out of 10.
