got to be honest found the apartments ok for what we paid, me and the hubby stayed here end of August for 2 weeks, my priority is cleaniness and it was clean, the beds and towels were changed every 3rd day and the staff were very approachable and helpful, but because when we are on our happy hols we like to get out and about early and explore no matter what time we get in we found it bizarre that the breakfast was not served until 9.00 as everything shuts down in the complex at midnight along with everywhere else in the village and the village restaurants do not open until 10am, so we would either wait or get the bus into Albufeira and eat there, maybe that is ok for some people but I don't want to cook on holiday as do that everyday at home, and the reason we go self catering is to have a choice of where to eat and at what time as we have tried 'all inclusive' and that wasn't for us, maybe I am being a bit hyper critical, also got to say the beds are a nightmare, no way if you are with a partner can you get close to them the most me and him have been apart is the 2 weeks spent in 'Vale de Carros' ha ha! anyway the good points are the complex has lovely gardens, but our health and safety would have a field day there are sprinklers everywhere to water the gardens which you can see of a day time but let me tell you in the night they are a danger as they are not the 'pop' up variety but little metal sprinklers and if you are not careful you could easily come a cropper! have to mention Nelsons Bar, Joseph is a lovely man and will welcome you with open arms, his beer is cheap and my god the measures are good! Hugos, Lagoisteras, Chinese Restaurant, are all great places to eat and meet great people, we met loads of lovely people at the complex but were totally amazed by the people who go back year after year sometimes 4 times a year? will honestly say for people with children it is ideal but to be honest if we where to go back to Portugal again would stay in Albufeira
