Me and my husband have just come back from a 2 week stay (Sept 7th-21st) We also went for 2 weeks last year. I wont repeat the good things that everyone else has said, because its all true! The apartment and location would be very hard to beat. and we had no complaints at all. There was room service everyday. Some days it was just a quick towel change, and others was a full clean. The girls on reception were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble.
There are so many restaurants to choose from. We actually found that the best meals were found in smaller family run ones, as the more popular ones in the old town are a bit like a conveyor belt.. We thought that prices were very good. On average, a 2 course meal with a bottle of wine and a beer came to about 35euros, which I thought was very reasonable.
The old town, and the beeches are lovely. We also went on a day trip called 'Historical Algarve' I have to say that it was well worth the 12 euros we paid for it, and we visited some places that we would never have seen on our own. It is a very long day though, and make sure you book in the Ticket Shops, as to go through the hotel would have cost us 30euros! A shuttle to Villamura is also a nice way to while away an afternoon seeing how the other half live.
Albufira is a lovely place, with something for everyone. I hope I get the chance to return again.
