The ALMAR apartments are all about location. Overlooking the sea (Sea View Apt Try to get 4th floor). They are a pleasant ten minute downhill stroll to the beach and the old town. There is a small supermarket two min away and a larger shopping centre 15min away. A few bars and restaurants are located within a stone’s throw, but the real hub is in the old town. Ate in several restaurants, all ok but nothing outstanding. The Costa Rica on the strip was still the best by far. The apartments themselves are basic and a little dated, but spotlessly clean, maid service every day with towels changed every second day. The pool and gardens looked very nice but it was a bit chilly for us at 17 degrees. The staff were very friendly and helpful. (Especially Sueria).
For the best live music you have to go and see Martin Jonathan Live at Steps Bar in Albufeira old town. He is unreal, what a guitar player and what a repertoire and a great entertainer. If you want a real entertainment experience go see this guy, forget X factor.
We played our golf at the Pestana group of courses, Alto, Silves, Gramacho, Pinta and Vila Sol. All were in really good condition, with fairways and greens in excellent order.
Our transportation was provided by YorEasyTravel, a young couple Nelson and Alexandra, both of whom were made unemployed some time ago, but got their own business up and running. A fast, extremely friendly and efficient service throughout the week and reasonably priced. Great to see a young family business doing well. I would most highly recommend YorEasyTravel, for both groups and individual travellers.
