“Best family holiday so far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

We booked a 2 bed apartment in the hotel. It was really spacious and the balcony was huge. Alot of people seem to have found the beds uncomfortable but we couldn't have slept any better. Even our 2 teenagers were happy with everything and as any of you parents out there know this is in itself a hard task to achieve!! We hope to go back again next year.

Room Tip: We had room 415, a two bed and it had an amazing view over both the sea and the pools which looked f...

Based on other reviews we chose a one bedroom apartment with sea view. This has a spacious bedroom with good storage. We found the beds firm but comfortable. The sitting room is large and well furnished. Both rooms had sliding doors leading to the huge balcony, this had 2 sun loungers and a liable and 4 chairs.
The kitchen was large, modern and very well equipped with everything most people would need. The hob, oven and appliances were new and worked well. The fridge was also new and clean
The bathroom was large, nicely tiled and well maintained
The complex is large and well landscaped. The small shop provides basic items and the bars have friendly staff - the burgers are excellent
Reception staff are helpful and friendly
Our only concern was that there is quite a lot of hard surface noise from other rooms when cleaners or guests drag furniture on the floors so soundproofing could be a lot better
Overall, a good choice

Just returned home after a lovely relaxing holiday at the Alfagar . The hotel is spotlessly clean , the rooms are spacious we had a garden view room . I would choose a pool or better still a sea view room for that little bit extra . The pools are fantastic either to relax or slides for the kids and they have a bit of character to them unlike your normal rectangle pool , at night they light up in three different colours which is really exotic looking .It is a great place for families to enjoy


The staff are all friendly and very helpful I will definately be returning here on my next visit to portugal

We went as a family of 5 2 adults and 3 children ages 16, 9 and 3 The apartment was clean but smelt a bit damp. We were in block 1 apartment 113 it was very close to the bar so had music every night but that didn't bother us. It was located right next to a lovely pool which had a toddler pool aswell. The grounds are immaculate, always someone tidying them up and tending to the beautiful plants. It is a bit of a walk to 'the strip' and if you go to the beach there, there's a very steep hill to walk back up. The hotel put a mi I bus on every day going to old albufiera costing €1 each, bargain. Entertainment could be better, some of the singers were shocking haha, the bird show up in the newer hotel was fab though. Overall we had the most perfect relaxing holiday, just what we wanted, would highly recommend Alfagar to anyone :-)

Fantastic hotel with pools especially the kids' pool with water slides. Beautiful apartment - probably one of the best hotels we've stayed in. Very family friendly with lovely staff.

Only negative is that the food in the hotel restaurant and the pool bars are very overpriced. We found we could save money by buying our food in the supermarket in the hotel grounds which was a fraction of the price charged by the hotel restaurant and pool bars. Other than that, we had a fantastic time and my four year old son loved every moment of it.

Will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Corner suites are the best - great views

Went in April. Lovely complex. Spacious apartment. The only downside, being a pensioner, I found it difficult to get down to the beach.
Supermarket on site. Indoor pool lovely and warm if you need to get away from the sun.
It was a very relaxing time, but activities were there if needed.
Shuttle bus into Alberfeira, very welcome escalators there to get down to the town and beach.

Room Tip: Our apartment was overlooking the childrens pool but I don't think it would matter where anyone...

The hotel had a fantastic kids pool with water slides. Not enough sun loungers at busy times. We ate breakfast once and thought it was average and not worth €8 per person. The food at the 2 pool bars was good and we ate here regularly, with one of the pool bars having free wifi. The hotel was a 5 min taxi ride from albuferia with the hotel charging €0.50 to call a taxi!! This was my main gripe about the hotel, everything had an extra charge (more than 1 key card, safe, TV remote). We had a sea view room which had a lovely view on a spacious balcony. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which slept 6, I think having 6 people would have been a tight squeeze, the kitchen was well equipped, just a shame the cleaners don't come in every day.
