“excellent holiday complex.a really relaxing resort with friendly staff and good facilities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

we stayed for a week at beginning of february and had a lovely time.its our second visit to the complex and we enjoyed it just as much as the first.we had a downstairs room overlooking one of the pools which was a good size,clean and all the basics you need for a self-catering holiday.no microwave but 4 rings and a good oven,toaster and kettle.being winter it was cold at night but there was an oil filled radiator in the room for heating.very well maintained gardens and as the name suggests it was like stopping in a village.there is a small supermarket on site supplying all your basic needs and an indoor pool if you want a swim.little chilly this time of year for outdoor pool unless you are very brave.this time of year the resort and complex is quiet and i would imagine it would be very different in main season.definately wont be our last visit.

Room Tip: the rooms with sea view are superb as i have seen the in laws room that they stay in.

We have just come back from a week at Alfagar Village. We stayed in a lovely apartment, extremely clean and spacious with stunning views over the sea.
The staff in the bar were great and the food was excellent.
We will definitely go back it was a great holiday.

This is an excellent place for families to stay although when we went it was off peak and rather quiet. Apparently in the Summer months it is very busy. Alfagar is situated only about a 10 minute drive to Albufeira.

The apartments & facilities are set in lovely well thought out and maintained grounds. There is even stairs down to a glorious sandy beach on a lovely coastline. The apartment was of a very good standard with modern fitted kitchen and appliances that looked new.

There was a building in the centre of the resort that acted as a bar but served meals, coffee etc. This had an open fire which I love as well as free wifi.... just wish there was wifi available to the apartments but unfortunately not.

There are ample outdoor pools for the warmer months, an indoor pool, tennis courts and even an excellent astro football pitch... although you have to have your own ball. Shame they did not have table tennis.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful to us during our stay.

Would certainly consider returning if we went back to the Algarve.

Room Tip: All apartments are well positioned but a few may have a side sea view that is really nice.

My family and I stayed at this property in July 2012. Only for one night though as we had to check out the following day because the accommodation does not have air-conditioning and neither were fans provided. You had to pay 10 Euros to rent a fan, which we did but it made little difference as the heat was quite stifling.
The sliding doors at the back were not very secure either. The one to the bedroom especially, did not lock properly and could be opened from the outside.

The property does have a newer, multi-story section (I think that's the one referred to as II) which apparently has newer facilities.

We stayed at the Alfagar at the end of October with our 14 year old son and his friend. Due to the relatively cheap price, we weren't expecting much. Boy were we wrong! The boys (normally notoriously unenthusiastic about everything) absolutely loved it from the moment we arrived. The apartment was great and cleaned every other day. The food was good, in the number of places to eat on site. There was an astroturf, tennis courts, games room, lots of pools (one of them indoor heated) and steps leading directly onto a lovely little beach. The place was kept clean throughout and staff warm and friendly. Also, literally ouside the hotel is a tree zipping place that is loads of fun. We had sea views from our apartment, so it was lovely to sit on the balcony, looking at the immaculately kept complex and beach. Many people that were there return year after year and we will definitely be doing the same. The weather was warm on sunny days, but we may just return slightly earlier in the year for more guaranteed sunshine next time

Room Tip: two bedroom apartment was large and comfortable. It was in block 3 so had recently been renovated to...

So, I've been to the Alfagar,Algarve in Portugal for the 6th time again, and i don't think i will ever get bored of it, its like my second home, the people there are so kind and make you feel at home. The staff are very welcoming and help you with anything you need. Lots of facilities for every age group. Best time to go is September - October time as I did and it was brilliant not to busy and very nice weather!! Looking forward to next year as I'm already looking. The sea was great this year and i got a really good tan! Really fun place and there is lots to do around the Algarve :)

We just had a week at Al Fagar and were very impressed. It is a spacious, well designed complex, kept immaculate by an army of cleaners/gardeners. Our appt was virtually on the cliff edge by the steps down to the lovely beach. It was spacious and well equipped. There are three places to eat, but we didn’t use them as we like to explore. The prices didn’t look too bad. There is a shop on site for self catering needs. As ever, a little more than the nearby supermarkets, but ok. Each night, one of the bars had low key reasonable quality entertainment.
They run a mini bus to old town twice a day (80c). All the staff were helpful and friendly. There are about 5 pools (one indoor)
with plenty of sun beds. We spoke to people in the newer apartotel section and they said it was good. The nearest outside restaurant (Martins) is about 10 min away. Or you can walk 25 mins to St Eaulalia or Olhos de aguas for many more.
We would be pleased to go back there.

If you want to read my report of our week there go to the TA Albufeira forum and look for “Our week in Albufeira” by trickster, dated 10/9/12
