I was with my parents and brother who is 17 years old.
Our apartment was great for the price we paid for it, the balconies gave us a nice view over the sea and sunset. The kitchen was really big and it had everything you need. The two bathrooms were a luxury. I have to say, there were a lot of British people, we're Dutch so we didn't really had contact with the other people at the apartments.
We had to walk a little while to the beach, but it wasn't too far away. The supermarket was really close to the apartment, just as lots of restaurants. The Strip was also close enough to walk but most of the times we took a taxi, very very cheap. In the evening we were a lot at Old-town Albufeira, lots of restaurants, nice shops and more.
A relaxed vacation! more
