In September 2010 I visited these apartments with my wife for the first time, to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary. Whilst there I wrote my 11th Children;s book in its entirity. The location of this resort had all the peace and tranquillity to allow me to be inspired. The book was published in November 2010 when i returned home. My wife and I have always wanted to return to this resort. In 2017 I became both a Dramatist and Song Writer, all based upon the stories I had written since 1999. Trying to do all this on a normal day-to-day basis, started to become difficult, so, there was only one place in my mind to go back to, in order to achieve this dream. We booked to go back this year and once there, everything fell into place, I wrote the final seven songs for my Children's Drama. Everything about the charisma of this Falesia Resort makes both of us feel calm and content. So, if you have something to write or create it may also work for you. You will never know unless you go.

We stayed in a studio flat of the Algarve Gardens. While the furniture was not brand new, we had all the necessary for our stay. The kitchen could do with some more equipment, but for the price we paid we really could not complain. We had also access to all the hotel amenities, such as loungers, swimming pools (inside and outside), jacuzzi and sauna. The studio was cleaned spotless every day and the staff was very nice. We had direct access to the beach and the entire area is just stunning! We are very happy with our stay and recommend this place.

We had booked studio months before we arrived to portugal, but when we finally get there everything has been taken, so we recived Villa in the price of the studio. That was great news and we are very appriciated. Unfortunatelly this hotel has been refubnished ages ago. Beds, floor, sofas and kitchen are very old,scraped and dystroyed by time. Microvawe was not working, kitchen full of ants soo you definitelly need to keep your food in fridge. Only 2 small glasses and 2 cups are doesnt help to prepare food. Beds in bedroom also very old and poor quality - you can feel all springs. Cleaning staff spray the rooms with bugs killers soo I has been sick on the first day, and we was not able to sleep there. Smell of bug killers and stench of old furniture is horrible.To be fair is Not very romantic and nice place to stay. I think hotel need to invest some money and buy new staff. However staff is very nice and helpfull. Beach around hotel is gorgeous and very clean. Also price wchih we paid was small soo I undertand that can't be a palace. Anyway for me is not even 1 star hotel at this moment.

We booked the algarve gardens apartment as a last minute deal and cost us £330 for 5 nights. Don’t be fooled into staying here like we were. Upon arrival to our destination the shuttle bus had dropped us off at the Alfamar hotel -only guessing we had to check in there. We arrived at 10am to check in and we were told our room was already clean and could be checked in earlier at 11.30am than said standard time of 2pm which was one of the only good things about this place. They also allowed us to leave our luggage in that really secure luggage cupboard which anybody and everybody had access to. During the time before getting our keys we explored the back of the hotel grounds which are cliffs which lead onto a stunning beach which was also the only highlight. And then explored the hotel facilities - basic, lack of air conditioning and rather grubby. When given our keys we were given no directions, no offer to show us where our apartment was, but were given a map of the algarve gardens apartments and there circled our apartment located as far away as possible from the Alfamar as you could get which was actually a 5 minute walk. After stumbling through the grounds searching each of the apartments we thought were to be ours we finally came to our apartment block I could only describe to look like the grenfell tower post disaster. We entered the open doored building (not locked - another really secure location) and tried to find our room number of 2123 which we had no idea which floor it was situated on as there were no signs. We had to then search each floor and lug our suitcase up 2 floors of stairs as there were no lifts either. When entering our apartment it was small, dirty, old fashioned, inadequate, inhabitable and most certainly nothing like the photos. The kitchen was a small cupboard with very basic kitchen equipment in, the bathroom had mould on the ceiling and a leaf on the mirror which looked like it had been sat there for some time and clearly hadn’t been cleaned. The floors were filthy wouldn’t dare take my shoes off in case I caught the athletes foot infection that had laid there since the place was built. The beds were like laying on a BBQ and squeaked when you breathed, and pillows I can’t even; however beds appeared clean. Air con clearly didn’t exist like the website said and if you opened the balcony door for some air all you could hear was traffic from the main road. Walls were very thin and you could hear all sorts from every apartment in the block. The balcony walls were also too low and anyone who wasn’t super careful could most definitely fall off there into the lovely sandy desert that lay below; that’s if you didn’t purposefully chuck yourself off it because of the state of an apartment you’ve ended up in. There were only 2 snack bars and 1 restaurant within walking distance which doesn’t give you much option and we wouldn’t have wanted to make our own food ever considering our ‘kitchen’ was about as useful as a nuns chuff. And if you wanted to go elsewhere Uber from here to the centre of Albufeira was €15 and a €30 round trip, making it very expensive if you wanted more of a selection of bars and restaurants. My boyfriend had then gone to complain to the staff and the manager who offered us an ‘upgrade’ to another apartment for an extra €10 per night, however after seeing how much they weren’t apologetic or bothered about our complaints and from the state of the place already we had already made our minds up that we wouldn’t be staying there. We then asked about the Alfamar itself and they said we could upgrade for an extra €75 per night.. next joke. We then decided to stay somewhere else completely. We lasted a whole 4 hours here in algarve gardens before we checked out and moved to another apartment complex much closer to the centre which was also cheaper (€277) and much nicer called Natura (defo recommend). The place is just filled with false advertisement. Not once do they show you pictures of the kitchens or bathrooms and the tower block you will be staying in. Or the fact that it states it has air con when it doesn’t. It fills you with hope, making it out to be an apartment complex with a bar, restaurant and pool but it’s using the Alfamars facilities for business to lure you to this dump. If you’re that desperate to stay here, I’d recommend you get a hire car so you don’t have to stay within the confined area of this place and bring your own pillow because they’re pathetic.

5 star on value and surroundings. Budget self-catering accommodation (and we paid absolute peanuts) in a lovely area near a beautiful beach with some really nice facilities in the nearby hotel. Don't expect the Ritz, it's a bed for the night and somewhere very basic to cook a meal. Don't expect to be in the centre of everything. Get a bus or hire a car. Very dated but perfectly liveable.You struggle to holiday for this sort of price these days so ignore the bad reviews and enjoy.

Having read the reviews for this hotel I was really dreading our holiday but I honestly can not recommend this place enough! I don't know what people expect for such a cheap price, we stayed in one of the many villas and loved it. They were cleaned everyday and so big for just the two of us. We stayed Self Catering so we ate out majority of the time, we only ate in the hotel's restaurant once and it was just your standard abroad All Inclusive Buffet. The poolside bar snack food was gorgeous, we loved the baguettes! It is a bit out of the way from Albufeira (The bus was every hour and about 20 min ride away - it cost 3.60 euros each with the last bus at 7.05pm - taxi's back cost 15 euros). There is an Italian Restaurant opposite and their food was AMAZING! So absolutely nothing to complain about this hotel at all! Didn't even miss the air con because Portugal gets so cool at night.

Just got back from these digs after a week in hell.you check in at the hotel were your met with lovely surrounds marble floors and a real good clean p now and accepted them as the price reflects what you get.a bit of mould around the bath or a few cracked tiles even a ceilings with plaster hanging off, I've had the lot but this was the pits.the villas from the outside look clean modern well kept loverly gardens and pool areas brilliant.but then we put the key in the door and opened up the most depressing dark dungeon you could ever imagine.all the furniture is 70s wouldent mind but it was battered.old oak table with a hole in middle were veneer had bubbled and come away.work tops in kitchen were you do your food got chipboard showing through.curtains from hell with hooks missing stains down back of toilet dark terracotta floor tiles must have been put down by the Roman's been cleaned and mopped that much they have became rough and tatty looking painted cupboards in kitchen and bedrooms that's been chipped and yellowed over the years.the cleaners are nice but as one spoke to us who was cleaning across the road from us she said theres only so much they can do and really they need so much work doing to them they happy just to keep taking the money off people and not putting anything back in.from opening the door on day one to day seven coming home was nightmare. Asked to be upgraded to hotel and pay extra but they said the hotel was booked up.if you like dark dungeon type rooms with old discusting furniture with battered furniture and curtains and floors you wouldent let your cat lay on then this hotel is for you.this hotel would not be trading in the uk with villas like this it would be closed down.waist of £1300.00.please dont go here if you want some type of decent clean room as these are the pits.all I can say is that the management themselves must have very low standards to be trading with these such depressing digs.thanx for waisting my holiday which I was looking forward to all year.

We stayed in the Algarve Gardens Apts on a few occasions .We found the Apartments were basic,but very clean.As the saying goes ,one gets what one pays for.The Apartment was cleaned every day,and the towels changed also.The amenities of the Alfamar Hotel ,which is just minutes from the Apartments are magic.There are 2 lovely pools.Also there is a lovely bar and seating area outside,they cater for all tastes.Lovely coffees,Beers,Cakes,Chips etc.The staff are very nice.Also on the grounds there are numerous sun beds for all to use.I have to say having the use of all of this is amazing,and so very very good.Also there are 2 shops in the hotel.
